American-style Stasi methods

Germans accuse U.S. of Stasi tactics before Obama visit

Government surveillance is an extremely sensitive topic in Germany, where memories of the dreaded Stasi secret police and its extensive network of informants are still fresh in the minds of many citizens.

In a guest editorial for Spiegel Online on Tuesday, Justice Minister Sabine Leutheusser-Schnarrenberger said reports that the United States could access and track virtually all forms of Internet communication were "deeply disconcerting" and potentially dangerous.

"The more a society monitors, controls and observes its citizens, the less free it is," she said.

"The suspicion of excessive surveillance of communication is so alarming that it cannot be ignored. For that reason, openness and clarification by the U.S. administration itself is paramount at this point. All facts must be put on the table."

Markus Ferber, a member of Merkel's Bavarian sister party who sits in the European Parliament, went further, accusing Washington of using "American-style Stasi methods".

"I thought this era had ended when the DDR fell," he said, using the German initials for the failed German Democratic Republic.
My view:

When the Germans are accusing you of secret police style tactics, it is time to sit up and take notice.

A country that was formed on the premise of liberty has travelled a long way from its founding principles.

Now is the time to stand up and be counted among those who support liberty rather than this Obama enforced tyranny that is now even attracting foreign attention.


  1. I'm glad folks are waking up to the Boston Bombing situation and starting to finally ask questions as to why the military was called up in this situation. The State Police and local Law enforcement could have handled this crime just like they handled other crimes in the past.

    This was a major failure by our so called leaders to have allowed the military to roam our streets in what I term to be a show of force and nothing more than intimidation, it still amazes me to this very day that people actually clapped and cheered for these individuals even though their freedom's we're compromised as was the safety of their family members as anyone of these trigger happy so called Hero's could have shot you or your children just out of suspicion.

    Bottom line this was a test and in typical Born and Bred American Dope fashion many Americans failed to stand up for their God given rights and gave up freedom for safety, but we're you really safe?? who we're these men and why did you allow them to enter your home???

    When the real round up begins and you're hauled off to some secret undisclosed location and separated from your family recall this post and many like as you we're warned it was gonna happen.

    Those who give up Freedom and Liberty for Safety deserve neither.
