Skip to comments."Thought Control"; Another Attack On America! DHS Releases "Domestic Extremism Lexicon" (Video)
Posted on 05/06/2009 10:12:08 AM PDT by DrGop0821
A DHS spokesperson said the dictionary was not authorized, that it was recalled shortly after it was let out and state and local law enforcement officials have been told to ignore it.
But this is precisely the way Team "O" thinks and perceives America. Lead by Obama, they are radical, arrogant, dishonest and dangerous to the American way of life.
Dobbs calls it "the kind of egregiously offensive product coming from the agency"
From Lou Dobbs:
"Another controversial report and more damage control from the Department of Homeland Security, the same department that issued a report suggesting returning war veterans were susceptible to extremist groups. Also issuing what it calls the quote "domestic extremism lexicon", end quote. It's like a dictionary with definitions for various extremists or terrorist groups and some definitions. Here's an entry. Anti-immigration extremism -- the Department of Homeland Security's definition -- people who are quote "highly critical of the U.S. government's response to illegal immigration and oppose government programs that are designed to extend rights to illegal aliens, such as driver's licenses and in-state tuition."
Rep. Peter King (R-NY) responds:
Lou, actually, it's very distressing. You and I can have a lot of fun with this, we could show you ridiculous it is how off- target it is, but the reality is that the department of homeland security is supposed to be defending us against another attack from Islamic terrorism, yet it appears to be the gang that can't shoot straight.
And also to me, it's missing its purpose. You went through all those different definitions of different type of extremists. Nowhere in that dictionary do you see the term "Islamic extremist." The department was set up primarily to protect us from another terrorist attack from Islamic terrorists, and yet they talk about everything but that. Any time they word "terrorist" since Secretary Napolitano took over was several weeks ago when they said the returning veterans and anti-illegal immigration organizations could be terrorists.
So this is really wrong and the fact that it's happened twice now shows that the department is really off control. There's a tremendous lack of discipline here.
The media had a field day with DHS over the color threat warnings, and acted like DHS were morons under President Bush. The media failed to explain the real purpose of the colored threat chart- that the various changes in threat level meant local and fed. LEOs and other agencies changed their SOPs depending on threat level. Instead the media acted like the chart was meant for the public and was a joke. The Bush administration should have stood up to them and explained what the deal was to the public- but even so I don’t see anyone but FOX making a deal out of this issue that is both funny- stupid and scary at the same time.
Everyone off the ship . . . .it’s a “cookbook” !!!!!!!
Instead of a small "Enemies List" from the Nixon era the Obama administration, in conjunction with the Democratic Party, are starting the process of demonizing their rivals so they can marginalize them and then take them out.
This is straight out of the Communist playbook.
