Tyler College sophomore Ryan Steele, the creator of another protest group called “Students Against H.R. 1955,” said he thought the bill broke with the Founding Fathers’ view of America, the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution.

“I think it broadens the description of a terrorist,” Steele said. “I think it includes U.S. citizens who are against the government in the description.”

Shey said he is also worried about the descriptions of terrorists.

“Would ‘9/11 Truthers’ or anti-war protestors, such as Code Pink, constitute having an extremist belief system for the purpose of facilitating ideologically based violence?” he said. “If definitions such as this one are stretched, dangerous conclusions could be reached.”

The vague language of the bill caused concern, Shey said.

Scott Creighton: Am I a Terrorist?

Am I a Terrorist?

December 2, 2007

by Scott Creighton

I woke up with the strangest thought. Are the views that I hold “extremist”? Are they dangerous to America? Am I a terrorist?

Now, normally I would simply attribute thoughts of this nature to way too much free time and simply take the dog for a walk and then go play tennis, and these improper thoughts would simply melt away into where the day takes me. Normally.

But we live in different times; by no means normal. After all, everything changed on 9/11, or haven’t you heard?

Let’s face it; the Executive Branch is no longer our own. Republican or democrat it really doesn’t matter. When standing in the way of the Unitary Executive’s agenda, we are all truly equal in the eyes of the law.
