We must not confuse dissent with disloyalty. We must remember always that accusation is not proof and that conviction depends upon evidence and due process of law. We will not walk in fear, one of another. We will not be driven by fear into an age of unreason, if we dig deep in our history and our doctrine, and remember that we are not descended from fearful men.
Why now? Because of this, HR 1955 – The ‘All Americans are all Terrorists’ Bill. Thanks to eiredrake for a well written analysis of that one.
