Homeland Porno Police

Two men walked into the Little Falls library in Bethesda, MD wearing hats which read “Homeland Security”. They then announced to the people inside the library that viewing Internet pornography is verboten. From WaPo:

After the two men made their announcement, one of them challenged an Internet user’s choice of viewing material and asked him to step outside, according to a witness. A librarian intervened, and the two men went into the library’s work area to discuss the matter. A police officer arrived. In the end, no one had to step outside except the uniformed men.

In the meantime, Osama bin Laden threatened the United States again. From ABC News:

In the tape posted to the Web site Monday, bin Laden offered the United States a long-term truce but also said his al-Qaida terror network would soon launch a fresh attack on American soil. The tape was initially broadcast Jan. 19 on Al-Jazeera, the pan-Arab satellite channel.

It’s nice to see that we finally have our security priorities straightened out.

I like tasteful cigars, private property, American whiskey, fast cars, hot women, pre-bailout Jeeps, fine dining, worthwhile literature, low taxes, original music, personal privacy and self-defense rights -- but not necessarily in this order.

    Sure they will… NOT. This is just his way of waging war on us… he knows that every time that he threatens America, our foolish government takes away our rights to “ensure our safety.” He just has to pepper the threats with the occasional real attack, and it’s basically guaranteed that our rights will vanish one by precious one.

  2. “What would happen to a guy that headbutts a Homeland Security or TSA goon? Seriously, as am in Australia.”

    He’d be shot, most likely. Several times.

  3. the funny part here is the patrons that, like perfect little sheeple, actually took a fucking ballcap as a sign of authority. Does nobody in Maryland know how to say “go to hell”?

  4. The opinions of Rehnquist, joined by O’Connor, Scalia (the “strict constructionist), and Thomas on US vs ALA included the following:

    Because public libraries’ use of Internet filtering software does not violate their patrons’ First Amendment rights, CIPA does not induce libraries to violate the Constitution, and is a valid exercise of Congress’ spending power. Congress has wide latitude to attach conditions to the receipt of federal assistance to further its policy objectives…”

    FedGov spending money on libraries in local municipalities in the first place is a valid exercise of Congress’ spending power?

    What the hell do these onerous despots think the 10th Amendment means?

  5. “The ‘two men’ are HEROES!”????

    They are heroes who were defeated by one unarmed librarian. Then they were reprimanded and “re-assigned.”

    Firemen are heroes, cops are heroes, soldiers are heroes, fathers are heroes. These guys don’t qualify as heroes on any scale. Hell, they are not even fit to patrol a freaking library!

    I do, but I use the Long Branch library in Silver Spring, not the Bethesda one. With the number of radical lefties in my neighborhood, these jokers would get a much harsher response.
