Poll: Most Americans Support Being Spied on by NSA

"Good German" syndrome runs rampant as government becomes tyrannical
Paul Joseph Watson


NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden has sacrificed his freedom, his future, his family, his home and his model girlfriend in order to warn Americans that they are the targets of a monolithic spy agency which is working feverishly to ensure that privacy is demolished – and most Americans simply don’t care.

Revelations that the National Security Agency was collecting records of millions of US customers of Verizon under a secret court order issued in April, followed by news that the NSA was also pulling private data “directly from the servers” of major US service providers such as Google and Facebook, stoked international condemnation, but not from American citizens, most of whom actually support the idea.

“A majority of Americans -- 56% -- say the National Security Agency's (NSA) program tracking the telephone records of millions of Americans is an acceptable way for the government to investigate terrorism,” reports Pew Research Center.

A comparison with a previous poll from January 2006 highlights the fact that more Americans are now likely to support NSA surveillance despite the huge scandal it caused for the Bush administration. Under Bush, 47% found NSA wiretapping of Americans unacceptable whereas just 41% find it unacceptable under Obama.

The poll also finds that whereas 61% of Democrats found blanket NSA surveillance unacceptable under Bush, only 34% oppose it under Obama – underscoring once again how partisanship is used to dismantle American freedoms no matter who is in office.

The survey also reveals that just one on four Americans are following the NSA story “very closely,” whereas the other 73% are presumably more interested in the release of the new XBox and season 17 of Dancing With the Stars.

“Sorry Edward Snowden: you just threw your life away for nothing. The sheep have been properly and thoroughly conditioned and brainwashed, which is why they continue to get precisely the government they so rightfully deserve,” writes Zero Hedge.

While the NSA cites the necessity to stop “terrorism” as its justification for eviscerating the 4th Amendment, the Obama administration is simultaneously supporting Al-Qaeda terrorists in Syria, many of whom have promised to attack the United States once they have finished with Bashar Al-Assad.

The irony of Snowden having to run to Communist China to escape from “the land of the free” is a chilling subtext to the story. Other authoritarian regimes throughout history have also cited security threats as a reason to put the entire population under surveillance.

As Robert Gellately of Florida State University has highlighted, Germans under Hitler spied on and denounced their neighbors and friends not because they genuinely believed them to be a security threat, but because they expected to selfishly benefit from doing so, both financially, socially and psychologically via a pavlovian need to be rewarded by their masters for their obedience.

That “Good German” syndrome is very much alive and kicking amongst Americans today, most of whom seem to be completely at ease with the fact that their government is becoming tyrannical while willing to make any excuse imaginable to deny that the United States is beginning to resemble a high-tech plutocracy which treats its own citizens as the enemy.

69209 This does not surprise me in a bit, and I do believe it's true. I' have been watching this behavior for years.

I was born and raised in the former USSR. And I can assure you that the topic of KGB surveillance, assault of the Soviets on the freedoms, civil rights, etc etc, were very hot among the middle class. So called "kitchen talk" was prevalent. Everybody was secretly listening to "Voice of America" and "Radio Liberty" on AM radio, broadcasted by the US.

Fast forward to the times when many of those middle class people have found their way into the US. Strange thing happened: once in the US, they have become totally uninterested in the very topics that were so hot when they were behind the iron curtain. I have yet to meet Russian emigrant who wouldn't feverishly support government version of 9/11, or who would be 1% concerned about the assault on the civil rights, about the police state, and such. You might think that having such a "school" of political dissent as having lived under Communist rule, they should be able to see through these government false flags at once. But in fact the exact opposite thing happens. They don't even want to listen, and in fact en masse they are more in support of the US government than "native" Americans. And note that these folks are mostly having excellent education, many have degrees and high income, they read books, visit theaters, etc etc.

This tells that even for the high-level peoples, bread and circuses far overshadow everything else. Their true interest in USSR was not civil liberties, it was the prosperity of the US. Once they have found it, they couldn't care less about these issues.

I guess, pretty much the same applies to those folks who have been interviewed.

The poll should have asked: Are you OK with the government spying on you so they can rob you, intimidate you, and dominate you more efficiently?

"Stopping terrorism" has nothing to do with it.

69209 That survey is based on several big assumptions:

1. Terrorism exists
2. By recording phone calls, government is investigating it
3. That investigation has some actual results in the form of some saved lives.

The relation of these assumptions to the reality is vividly demonstrated by the fact that poor FBI has been provoking patsies nonstop since 9/11, creating one "cell" after another, and had zero luck in catching anyone real, i.e. not created by themselves - the same number as TSA did.

That all to prevent terrorist act that with the best luck would take 4-5 lives. Meanwhile, 32,000+ people die every year in car crashes, but we don't hear about investing billions in preventing it, building huge data centers analyzing the traffic that could reduce that number, etc.

US patent US6816296 or, (N)ode (S)witching (A)sembley


Where did the NSA come from? The commis have the CIA, FBI, BEN, yet, they can simply makeup a fake agency, (you fucks had better make sure to write a fake history for the founding this agency in commi-pedia; established in 1992, of course...) and people don't even blink.


56 percent... That would be 11 in the government's spooky math.



I was talking with one of the CIA's "private (CON)tractors" the day before Ed Snowden (anagram for that name) leaked (realized the con, that is the con) the governments not-so-secret spying methods, and he was telling me: "you don't understand, it's bigger than they realize."
My response was: "didn't you read the script? It reads that your kind will be the first to go." Him: "No! But you don't understand!"
Me: "Yes! I do, you stupid-fuck, it's YOU, who didn't understand."

Church inc. is pointing toward Jordan (Edomite territory) while their puppets (government inc.) are pointing us toward Ed Snow..... I'm curious BEN, the scripts you're writing... Do you realize that your names are going to be substituted, for the the so-called: "terrorists?" If I was promised eternal life, (who in the hell wants that?) I'd probably be somewhat pissed, if I were writing the conditions to my own death.

7630 Just more main stream propaganda, fed to the receptive ones that are trained to hear the message. Unfortunately, these same receptive ones will be the first ones herded into the camps "for their own safety". They cannot imagine a world in which they would be required to think for themselves. That would be anti-social on their part.

Until a political figure targets you for speaking the truth, no one has a clue what the government can do. Most all have PR firms that track Facebook, twitter and this directs their clients PR plan. My case has lasted over a year, and the politician that used me won his election! What a sore winner!
