    Somewhat on topic.

    Can't believe they had the audacity to do this. This has got to be an all time low. It breaks my heart that we have go through this utter bulls**t. We as a nation are under attack from the inside. Apparently they have never read their books in school because they must not know what the flag is in our history as a country. Adult Children I say.

    A Louisiana driver was stopped and detained for having a "Don't Tread on Me" bumper sticker on his vehicle and warned by a police officer about the "subversive" message it sent, according to the driver's relative.

    The DHS need to be eliminated along with the BATFE. Thanks George Bush,for creating this monster.

    I'm a little suspicious of the account. Someone with that bumper sticker on their car would not caveinduring such an unconstitutional stop. Or maybe he just likes pretty pictures of snakes.

    Oh gee whiz, I thought the Missouri DHS rescinded that memo declaring people with those bumper stickers rightwing extremists or militia?

    Yeah, right. This adds weight to my theory on the Missouri DHS memo. Some LEO are not going to ignore the memo, and will apply the labels anyway. I believe this is the intended effect the DHS wanted; widespread news coverage, outrage, and acceptance of their whacked out oppression disguised as protectionist propaganda.

    I wonder when the DHS concentration/death camps come into play?

    I'm on a list??? Oh I knew that from day one. Got the Gadsden Flag bumper sticker on my car and my wife has a T-Shirt with an arrow pointing to her left saying "I'm with a Right Wing Extremist!"

    No, because I'm sure most of us are. What really sucks is, Inever receive any royalties from Glock for advertising one of their products.

    There are plenty of people whose mouths can sign big checks. It another thing entirely to rely on another part of ones anatomy to provide the cash.
    This is probably why the story boils down to:
    Two unnamed persons claim a traffic stop happened for an egregious violation of the concept of RAS, when the cops say no traffic stop of any kind occurred.
    Let's get worried when someone stands up and actually gets shot down!

    I clicked on the link and it reads like a WND scare piece with little or no background.

    Doesn't sound solid to me.

    Just the same, time to get my Gadsen flag out...

    I've been stopped, cuffed, and stuffed, and it never showed up in any police records.

    Don't rely on their "recordkeeping" to tell the whole truth.

    Well, maybe not every member.

    But certainly people who suggest that they do are on the list.

    And certainly people who post in threads which...uhm

    It said in the article that WND is withholding the name of the driver and the relative at their request. Does it really surprise anyone that this type of thing can happen,,or is happening? It doesn't surprise me. Having the experience of going through a check point between Arizona and New Mexico and seeing JBT in black jump suits with buses and such and then seeing what looked to me like a concentration camp just down the road,,and BTW that was in 2001 I just get this eerie feeling,,,just me sayin' it.

    The genesis of this incident lies squarely upon the shoulders of BHO and his propaganda ministry, otherwise known as the Strategic Analysis Group and the Extremism and Radicalization Branch, Homeland Environment Threat Analysis Division, Department of Homeland Security.

    The guy is lucky he isn't a war veteran or there would have been probable cause to arrest him as a terrorist suspect!

    He fits the profile crammed down the throat of legitimate law enforcement by the DHS. No wonder the police officer keyed on that radical bumper sticker. Don't forget, patriots are domestic extremeists.

    The Department of Homeland Security is a Tyrants Tool. It has the potential to be even more evil than the BATFE.

    What incident? No record of it except a blurb in WND, not exactly a reliable source.

    Not saying it couldn't happen, but so far this is just an internet myth.

    I have one of those calvin ******* on the "O" symbol stickers on the back of my car.It is on the window just above my NRA sticker.

    The Commies show their displeasure by getting RIGHT up on my bumper at traffic lights. I do my best to hesitate a second or two after the light changes to make sure that no one is running the red light in another direction, of course...

    I am waiting for the day one of them is so pizzled that they tap my rear bumper and I get out to inspect the damage and exchange information while OCing.

    That should be good for a :what:.

    I'll quote somebody from another site with this story:

    If WND says the sun rose today, I’d seek independent verification.
    I agree.

    That's a BIG 10-4, MSC. Frankly though this story sounds like BULLCRAP to me. Show me a police officer in Louisiana who is a damn hippie and I will show you a shrink to see about your hallucinations. It is just incredible just how credible (or gullible) people are these days.

    Everybody knows the Navy has always been subversive. That's why they have SUBmarines. And as the subversive Mr. Lee would say, "Be water, my friend" .
