Pennsylvania's Office of Homeland Security thinks this man is a terrorist

Sure, he's kind of swarthy, I guess. But he's Italian swarthy, not, like MIDDLE-EASTERN swarthy. Not that it should matter, but I guess that in a state that has Philadelphia on one end, Pittsburgh on the other, the Amish in the middle, and Alabama everywhere else, you'd expect Mark Ruffalo to end up on a terrorist watch list:
Actor Mark Ruffalo has been placed on a terror advisory list by U.S. officials after organizing screenings for a new documentary about natural gas drilling.

The "Zodiac" actor arranged showings for "GasLand" earlier this year and voiced his concerns about the practice in relation to the national water supplies.

But his efforts to raise awareness and demand a stop to natural gas drilling reportedly attracted the attention of officials from Pennsylvania's Office of Homeland Security - and he recently discovered it had landed him on a terror alert watchlist.

So...while 80-year-old women and six-year-old children are being virtually strip-searched at airports this weekend, and Mark Ruffalo is being branded a terrorist, I wonder what ACTUAL, REAL terrorists are doing.

"I wonder what ACTUAL, REAL terrorists are doing." Probably wearing Pilgrim costumes and pretend-wiping out ingenious peoples in the MACY's Day Parade.

Guess you're a terrorist if you don't believe 110% in the Corporate American Way.
