You may wonder “How is fake NFL merch a Homeland Security issue?”
Ah! But you fail to grasp the evolving view of our Ruling Class on what is “terror” and who the enemy is. Once you declare that “the battlefield is everywhere” and you adopt an elastic enough view that “terror” means “crime” and “crime” means “anything that sufficiently irritates our monied class and their incestuous lovers in the State” much becomes clear. “Homeland security” stops being about the pretense of keeping you safe from The Terrorists[TM] and becomes, increasingly, a massive new police force for the purpose of treating anybody it likes as part of the great bogey network of The Terrorists[TM].
