East Germany’s Stasi is showing itself in our country today.This is a piece well worth reading and passing along for it is very telling.
I’m going to post this in remembrance to those left behind in East Germany that couldn’t get out, for the families separated and the families that still to this day mourn them , and how it can and just might be happening here and now.Having family that couldn’t leave the East was very hard for those that legally immigrated to the US,no way could we get them out or even hear from them.We had only one letter from them when my grandmother passed on in the 1950’s.Most of that only letter was blacked out,by hand too.I love America,God Bless Her always and keep her free!
God bless my family always,I pray God is with you all.And thank you to Mr.King for writing this.
Disturbing abuses of power
By Colbert I. King, Published: May 17 ,2013
With its surveillance of citizens, infiltration of civil rights groups and disruption of legal activities, the FBI’s counterintelligence program echoed the behavior of East Germany’s Stasi. The FBIacknowledges on its Web site that “COINTELPRO was later rightfully criticized by Congress and the American people for abridging first amendment rights and for other reasons.”
Fortunately, Congress reined in the FBI, placing it behind, and not beyond, the Constitution.
Where are we now?
The revelations that the Justice Department had secretly seized journalists’ phone records and that the Internal Revenue Service had targeted conservative groups seeking tax-exempt status show that government’s heavy hand has not been lifted. Are these examples of COINTELPRO revisited?
Not quite, though they are disturbing….
