How We're Letting The Terrorists Win, Part MMXI

There's a whole bunch of things to be discouraged about in David Cole's op-ed, but this bit really takes the cake:

It is therefore a felony, the government has argued, to file an amicus brief on behalf of a “terrorist” group, to engage in public advocacy to challenge a group’s “terrorist” designation or even to encourage peaceful avenues for redress of grievances.

Those last three words sound familiar? They should.
