Metadata = Spying


Behold the face of tyranny.

I just watched Stewart Baker defend metadata collection on The Independents. Well, he tried to defend it. Turns out it’s all a lie, and the young Libertarian hosts of the show called him out on it. In Stewart’s world, if we make the NSA stop collecting metadata, we face another 9/11. Dick Cheney woulda been proud of the booga-booga Stew was slinging.

“Metadata absolutely tells you everything about somebody’s life, if you have enough metadata you don’t really need content.” – Stewart Baker

Either you are for my privacy or you are the enemy of my Constitution, and by extension, my enemy as well.

Which is it?
