This is chilling -- and it's specifically meant to be:
Federal agents searched homes of anti-war activists in Chicago and Minneapolis on Friday in an investigation of possible links with terrorist organizations in the Middle East and South America.
On Friday, the FBI raided the homes of seven anti-war activists in Chicago and Minneapolis, seizing computers, personal papers, and issuing subpeonas ordering them to appear in front of a Grand Jury on suspicion of "material support for terrorism" -- or at least that's what the FBI seems to call it when teachers and Union Stewards speak out publicly against U.S. military involvement in the Middle East and Latin America.
One can only imagine what the official reaction would be if these community activists had used hateful rhetoric and openly threatened violence against the federal government -- oh wait; that's what thousands of tea partiers do every day without having heir homes torn apart and being threatened with jail.
More on this as it develops. These people are going to need support.
