Horton accuses the governing body of frequently exploiting its power in having the Justice Department instigate repression among voters. Furthermore, the lawyers who were inspecting the unlawful actions of these political criminals were quietly discharged of their duty and the incriminating evidence was concealed. The Bush administration was also spying regularly on religious and political groups in the country, while it covertly introduced a tremendously illegal surveillance program that caused conflict among senior officials in the Justice Department. Horton attributes this illicit monitoring device as the reason behind the “War on Terror” because it misleadingly revealed all of intelligence’s information on Iraq to both
Americans know “racial profiling is both morally wrong and ineffective”, but they rather be safe than sorry (Chavez 563). Americans only get the idea that all middle easterners are terrorists because media has taken the role of portraying them in such a way to plants terror in Americans (Spurlock). People have gotten to the point of people being “singled out” because of looking certain way or because people around them feel uncomfortable (Chavez 569).
Poli-Sci Top Secret America This documentary is a perfect example on how the government is extremely secretive and exhibits how the government handles certain situations that are not exactly the “American Way”. “The top-secret world that the government created in response to the 9/11 terrorist attacks has become so enormous, so unwieldy, and so secretive that no one knows how much money it costs, how many people it employs or exactly how many agencies duplicate work being done elsewhere” (The Washington Post). The result is that the system put in place to keep the United States safe may be putting us in greater danger and slowing chipping away at our civil liberties because it was said “The Gloves are coming off” (Bush). This Secret
America with its advanced and sophisticated technology is not safe and secured from external attacks and other terroristic activities of its citizens. Gait Recognition and CC Camera Surveillances throughout the country cannot stop terrorist attack on Bay Bridge which kills more than four thousand people. Moreover, the failure of DHS (Department of Homeland Security) to maintain law and order and its wrong concept of taking every citizen as susceptible terrorist further increase terroristic activities by the frustrated and enraged people and prove itself as an agent of organized terrorism. Marcus Yallow and his technologically well-informed friends are the product of bad schooling and bad system of the government. Clever enough to trick the constant vigilance of school administration and its complete control; they become capable to threaten DHS and even the government.
The Nisei was one of the generations that experienced Internment camps more. On the other hand the public had different opinions. They thought that everything the government was right in everything like for example he told them that they were spys the public would believe them. Fear was another important thing that the civilians and public felt because they were scared of being invaded and another secret attack. People didn’t know what to expect or what to
In “We’re Fighting Terror but Killing Freedom” by Randall Hamud, we are introduced to the topic of the government acting to persecute any and all Muslims in the United States, even without proper evidence or cause and without regard to any rights for U.S. citizens on United States soil. Hamud discusses his life and upbringing as an Arab American. He then discusses how after September 11 people were being accused of terrorist acts because of their nationality. As an attorney, he represented many other Arab Americans who were accused of terrorism-not because they were his own kind, but because he believed the law had been the first victim of terrorism. He also explains why people should not judge a book by its cover.
Ethnocentrism can be detrimental to a society, because it can lead to false accusitions about a certain group of people, like the Muslims today. When people think of Muslims, the automatically think they are a terriost. All muslims aren’t terrorist and have a lot to offer this world, but we tend to label them as a terrorist because of the media and society. 3. Define emigration and immigration.
According to Michael Moore’s documentary, I assume that media can’t be trustworthy unless people explore for the accurate news and find out who is behind those news and TV shows. Some media images could be fabricated to edited or transmitted from the wrong place. Furthermore the problem with some government’s TVs that they use lots of intimidation in their news, and most people believe it and they build their thoughts on what they hear in the news without searching for the true information. For example, there is an American TV show called “Cops”, it is a documentary of reality shows the way how cops search for criminals and how they chase them. They usually show that that the criminals are black people and the white cops are chasing them.
By doing this the government is invading the citizens privacy. Not only does everyone in America have the right to privacy but every human being that is a citizen to any country in the United Nations. The NSA say that this program is strictly for finding terrorists and preventing any future terrorism attack it still bothers many people that nothing is private. The only reason that the NSA can perform these actions is because they are a government supported program. The privacy of millions of people can be violated because the government believes its right.
Terrorism: is really an extreme process which it go to if they think the government is not listening to them it is a response to the public policy , it involved violence against people and military places in order to force the government to change its policy or specific issue because they believe it is not right and is effecting many people , the governments do not like terrorism and do not responded well to it and they have a policy of not negotiating with hostage takers under any circumstances no matter what happens for example there was an incident in northern Ireland when the ,loyalist and republican terrorist groups were active in northern Ireland and on the British mainland which put civilian and military property at risk, one of the worst situations was the bombing of a shopping centre in omagh in 98’ 29 people were killed but the uk government still did not agree to the terrorist demands because if they did negotiate it would have been considered as rewarding violence and make future violence more likely but on the other hand people felt as if it justified terrorists can be persuaded to abandon
