Terrorism is just another word for gay kissing

So what sort of nefarious terrorist plots is our government shredding the Constitution to protect us from? Via Americablog, we learn:

According to recent press reports, Pentagon officials have been spying on what they call “suspicious” meetings by civilian groups, including student groups opposed to the military’s “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” ban on lesbian, gay and bisexual military personnel. The story, first reported by Lisa Myers and NBC News last week, noted that Pentagon investigators had records pertaining to April protests at the State University of New York at Albany and William Patterson College in New Jersey. A February protest at NYU was also listed, along with the law school’s LGBT advocacy group OUTlaw, which was classified as “possibly violent” by the Pentagon. A UC-Santa Cruz “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” protest, which included a gay kiss-in, was labeled as a “credible threat” of terrorism.

So when Bush assures you that his illegal and unconstitutional spying was limited to only the worst of violent evildoers, take it with the same enormous grain of salt as his claims three years ago that Iraq really, really, truly, definitely had WMD.
