Are you in the market for a patriotic tattoo, maybe the Gadsden flag? Forget about it. Unless you want the local tattoo artist to inform on you.
The FBI, in league with the Bureau of Justice Assistance (part of the Department of Justice), has launched a program that harks back to East Germany's Stasi.
In Philadelphia, the FBI has instructed tattoo shops to rat out their customers if they demand privacy, insist on paying with cash, engage in "suspicious behavior," make "anti-US" comments, or request tattoos that are "extremist symbols."
According to the MIAC report, the Gadsden flag is a "militia symbol." The Department of Homeland Security's Rightwing Extremism: Current Economic and Political Climate Fueling Resurgence in Radicalization and Recruitment report characterizes militias as "white supremacists," domestic terrorists and a threat to the president. MIAC is part of the federal "fusion" effort now underway around the country.
It is not merely "extremist symbols." In addition, the FBI literature instructs tattoo shops to be on the look-out for people who change hair color, style of dress, or shave beards between visits. Suspicious people also include those with missing fingers or hands, chemical burns, strange orders or bright colored stains on clothing.
