It seems the right wing nuts that populate today’s GOP are terrified of the Girl Scouts.GOP Rep. Bob Morris of the Indiana legislatures just sent his colleagues a letter urging them not to honor the Girl Scouts on their 100th anniversary because, he claims, the Scouts are part of the agenda of Planned Parenthood or something to subvert our children. Cookies, anyone?

If you support Wikileaks, if you support transparency, accountability, or even just basic free speech, you should not be playing into the government’s semantic game that presents itself as a victim, and Wikileaks as an attacker. As someone who engages in journalism, as someone who engages in activism and dissent, I don’t want these things re-defined as an attack on the state.
I am not an insurgent, and neither are you. Until we realize that, until we understand the difference between journalism and war, then the government will continue to claim it’s acting in self defense.
Stop giving the government an excuse for repression. Stop calling Wikileaks “warfare”.
