Reported at NBC News (!) and relayed by Sundance:
The U.S. Department of Homeland Security is now getting ready to hire public companies, individual contractors outside government, to scour public data and social media in order to provide information for the new “domestic terror watch lists.” From the description it appears DHS is going to pay “big tech” (Google, Facebook, YouTube, Instagram, SnapChat, Twitter, etc.), via contracts, to hire and organize internal monitoring teams to assist the government by sending information on citizens they deem “dangerous.”
Gee, what could possibly go wrong with this?…
Nothing will "go wrong." They will accomplish exactly what they want to: elimination of the opposition. A couple of Show Trials may do the trick.
Repeat: "MAY do the trick."
Just as a couple of serious firefights may convince the FEEBS that it's time to retire or weed their gardens or take baths, become elementary teachers or receptionists.
