In yet another move towards an East Germany type snitch society, a company called Citizens Concept has launched an App with the catchy name, “PatriotApp.” Apparently this App is named after the Patriot Act and we all know how wonderful and patriotic that Orwellian, Constitution destroying law has been.
Just ask Susan Lindauer who was arrested as an Iraqi agent under the Patriot Act when she was clearly working for the U.S. government but had information that the Republican leadership did not want to hear!
This App allows citizens to snitch on their neighbors just as Hitler convinced thousands of Germans to tell on their own neighbors and family.
The App essentially connects your phone to the FBI, EPA, GAO, and CDCs tip line. Why would American citizens need to report suspicious activity to the EPA, the same agency who literally let our gulf been chemically raped by millions of gallons of toxic Corexit?
Are Americans expected to report tips to the FBI so that the FBI can go out and give the “suspicious” person fake bombs and claim they were scary Muslim terrorists?
Citizen Concepts announces the launch of PatriotAppTM, the world’s first iPhone application that empowers citizens to assist government agencies in creating safer, cleaner, and more efficient communities via social networking and mobile technology. This app was founded on the belief that citizens can provide the most sophisticated and broad network of eyes and ears necessary to prevent terrorism, crime, environmental negligence, or other maliciousbehavior.
More efficient communities? Is this App eventually going to be used and connected to the green police? Are American citizens being lined up to snitch on their neighbors if their “carbon input” is too high?
MSNBC, the same company who received millions in bailout money and has labeled 9/11 Truthers as terrorists had this to say:
Launched in September, the PatriotApp allows people to report criminal or suspicious activity to several federal agencies, including the FBI, EPA, CDC and GAO (Government Accountability Office), the office responsible for investigating public funds. It also includes RSS feeds for the FBI’s Most Wanted list and the Department of Homeland Security’s threat level, and allows people to report workplace harassment and discrimination.
The app doesn’t grant a user privileged access to these agencies; rather, it bundles each group’s Internet tip line (ITL) — the website feature used to report incidents — and makes them mobile-phone friendly, and even enables users to send pictures. While it offers users a direct portal to each site’s ITL, the user must still go through the same process — and obey the same policies and warnings — as they would if accessing the site on a computer.
Playing off the Patriot Act name, “the app was founded on the belief that citizens can provide the most sophisticated and broad network of eyes and ears necessary to prevent terrorism, crime, environmental negligence, or other malicious behavior,” according to Patriotapps.com.
