The clip gym intrigue from Fahrenheit 9/11 (2004)

This is Barry Reingold, a retired phone worker...
...from Oakland, California.
Barry likes to work out in the gym.
Somewhere between his cardio and his strength training...
...Barry got political.
We were up in the gym, and it was after we were working out...
...and a number of us were talking about 9l11 and Afghanistan...
...and bin Laden, and someone said, "Bin Laden's a real asshole...
...for murdering those people." And I said, "Yeah, that's true.
But he'll never be as big an asshole as Bush...
...who bombs all over the world for oil profits."
Barry didn't have to worry about the police spying on him.
His fellow weightlifters were more than willing to turn him in.
I was taking a nap, and I guess it was 1:30, 2:00 in the afternoon.
And they came to my place, and I said, "Well, who's there?"
And they said, "The FBI." I said, "The FBI? Why are they here?"
Yes, the FBI had come to see Barry. And they weren't there to Jazzercise.
The FBI said, "Have you been talking to people about 9l11 and bin Laden...
...and oil profits and Afghanistan?" I said, "A lot of people are talking...
...about these things."
I feel my rights have been, you know, trampled on.
I mean, if you have something to say to me in the gym, well, then, fine.
Don't tell the FBI, and they come to my apartment while I'm taking a nap.
Nothing to be ashamed of. There's full transparency.
