An authoritarian regime that exploited mass panic over the events of September 11th, 2001 in order to gain unprecedented and unconstitutional control of the United States government, in order to deal with the relatively insignificant and entirely undefinable problem of "terrorism."

Though it was originally claimed that "terrorism" had nothing to do with Islam, recent events have made it clear that the entire operation is a religious crusade against Muslims, the most radical of whom are far less of a threat to Americans than white reactionary Christian men with guns.
Homer: Not a terrorist in sight. The Terror Patrol must be working like a charm.
Lisa: That’s specious reasoning, Dad.
Homer: Thank you, dear.
Lisa: By your logic I could claim that this rock keeps voter fraud away.
Homer: Oh, how does it work?
Lisa: It doesn't work.
Homer: Uh-huh.
Lisa: It's just a stupid rock.
Homer: Uh-huh.
Lisa: But I haven't seen any voter fraud, have you?
Homer thinks of this, then pulls out some money
Homer: Lisa, I want to buy your rock.
Lisa refuses at first, then takes the exchange
