Ten Terms that Could Get You in Trouble with the DHS, If You Tweet Them

Below, I reported on the Brit who was not allowed into the U.S. because he tweeted the British slang for "party", which is "destroy", as in I am going to destroy America.

Below is a report from the UK's Mail Online on 10 terms the DHS is monitoring:

The Department of Homeland Security was recently criticised over false accounts it set up on Twitter.

These are then used to scan networks for 'sensitive' words and then for tracking the people who use them.

Online privacy group, the Electronic Privacy Information Centre requested information on the DHS's scans, which it says the agency announced in February last year.

The group claims that a request under the Freedom of Information Act to access the documentation has gone unanswered.
The words deemed as being sensitive by the DHS include:

Illegal immigrant
Human to animal


  1. Gawd!
    Those terms taken together exactly describe my weekend!!!
    What am I to say??
    P.S. the "human to animal" part is especially embarrassing!

  2. Recovery? Human to Animal? WTF?

  3. How paranoid can they be?...

  4. Oh... How lucky is Eminem for being an American? He has an entire album named Recovery.

    But my own comment. I tend to be quite paranoid when it comes to Internet. Very little (if any) information can be found about me. Don't tweet; don't post anything on Facebook or YouTube. However, I'm afraid that some day I may not be allowed inside of the States. Simply because I can't be found via WWW, so I must be using a fake id & a name.

  5. My next tweet:
    In sex I go human to animal-wear a trojan-strain-drill-roof may collapse-hope no virus outbreak or death from illegal immigrant hookers.

  6. What are the Navajo names for the "words that shall be suspicious"? Does DHS have a hit out for them as well?

  7. The powers that be must love unfettered, illegal immigration. You'd want to believe that DHS was looking out for people bringing people illegally to the states, but we all know that instead, they are looking for the "kooks" who think having an open Southern border is absolutely ridiculous. Of course those "kooks" make up over 60% of the country, but whatever. The quicker we turn our country into Chicago, the better.

  8. Hard to believe "Destroy" and "Marilyn Monroe" didn't make the list!

  9. Who wants to start an
    "Illegal immigrant Outbreak Drill Strain Virus Recovery Deaths Collapse Human to animal Trojan" Blog with me?
