South Carolina wants this jihadist to register as a "subversive" and pay a $5 registration fee!

No joke: South Carolina now requires ’subversives’ to register

By Daniel Tencer – February 5th, 2010

Terrorists who want to overthrow the United States government must now register with South Carolina’s Secretary of State and declare their intentions — or face a $25,000 fine and up to 10 years in prison.
The state’s “Subversive Activities Registration Act,” passed last year and now officially on the books, states that “every member of a subversive organization, or an organization subject to foreign control, every foreign agent and every person who advocates, teaches, advises or practices the duty, necessity or propriety of controlling, conducting, seizing or overthrowing the government of the United States … shall register with the Secretary of State.”
There’s even a $5 filing fee.
By “subversive organization,” the law means “every corporation, society, association, camp, group, bund, political party, assembly, body or organization, composed of two or more persons, which directly or indirectly advocates, advises, teaches or practices the duty, necessity or propriety of controlling, conducting, seizing or overthrowing the government of the United States [or] of this State.”

The law also gives subversive organizations “subject to foreign control” 30 days to register with the state after setting up shop in South Carolina.
While the intention of the law is apparently aimed at Islamic terrorists, it’s unclear in the law’s wording whether it can be applied to right-wing militias, some of whom have reputedly called for the overthrow of the US government. The law states that “fraternal” and “patriotic” groups are exempt from the law, but only if they don’t “contemplate the overthrow of the government.”

  1. This would be funny if it wasn’t so scary.

  2. I can see them lining up to register right now!
    This is from the: “What the heck were you thinking department.”

  3. I’d like to see Illinois pass this law. Olaimo and his cronies would all have to register. LOL

  4. What is going on in the Carolinas? Is there something in the water?

    • Wow.
      If the residents of King, NC, don’t throw out their city council and NC state residents don’t revise this state of emergency law, then they deserve to live under tyranny.
      This is a video Dave posted on his blog, Dave’s Notepad (visit him!):

      The city government received lots of complaints from furious residents. The state of emergency was lifted yesterday (Monday) morning.

  5. Eowyn,
    As I told someone over at NB, this is what happens when people take their eye off the ball and don’t pay close enough attention to who they are voting into positions of power, and that includes at the state and local level, too.
    What concerns me is that, unlike when FEMA pulled this BS during Katrina, most are ignoring this incident, including many who should be all over it.
    I’m afraid complacency isn’t just a problem for the sheeple.
    Oh, and thanks for the plug. 🙂

  6. Dave, isn’t there some kind of clothesline issue going on in NC? Has it been resolved? Just curious. People need to stand up for what’s right, and I’m glad many complained.
    Give them an inch…….

  7. muffin,
    I’m not sure.
    One of my NewsBusters friends who lives up that way posted a reply today that the people in King are considering a lawsuit.
    I think they should sue, but not until the people responsible for this travesty have been run off at the point of a pitchfork.
    -The loaded kind.
