Posted on 02/14/2012 10:31:20 AM PST by John Semmens
A recently issued lexicon from the Department of Homeland Security warns law enforcement personnel to be on the lookout for what it calls militia extremists.
Militia extremists were described as persons who exhibit an undue suspicion of government as manifested in statements that evince an inordinate reverence for the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, especially provisions protecting the rights to freedom of speech, bearing arms, and bars to so-called unreasonable search.
Law enforcement officers were advised to keep such persons under close surveillance and to not hesitate to act if they perceive a threat. Lets not forget that the worst threats to our government may come from within.
if you missed any of this week's other semi-news posts you can find them at...
This would include anyone in the NRA or the Republican Party.
They have GOT to be $h!tting us.
Those are the kind of words that will do nothing but foment revolution. Perhaps that is what they want.
Oh well. I guess I'll have to refrain from donning the ACUs until the shootin' starts.
one word —> s.t.e.a.l.t.h.
The first thing that came to mind for me?
Basically all white conservative Americans who support the constitution should be under surveillance from the government at all times. It’s a brave new world.
When will the US government turn its weapons on the American people is the question we need to be asking. Probably sooner than you think.
Obama and friends would love nothing more than for a white conservative to attack a government target ala Anders Breivik. They could institute martial law and take away your rights and 50% of the population aka democrats would cheer for it and rat out their republican/conservative neighbors to the government/police.
The fact that this message is being sent to local law enforcement indicates to me that DHS needs local law enforcement to implement their traitorous deeds.
However, as far as local LEOs go...they is us. I doubt they'll all see this as a directive they'll follow. I'd be willing to bet it will garner a goodly number of guffaws, chortles and snorts among that cadre.
I clicked on this to observe the responses.
Bin Laden’s dead...and”The Tea Party”, when elected, will defund them.
“..that evince an inordinate reverence for the Constitution ..”
who establishes what is the “inordinate reverence”?
Curses! Hoodwinked again!
Am am always the first to be sucked in by these satirical pieces.
Once again, proudly posting before reading the entire article since 1999.
Golly, from this language you’d think anyone in elected or appointed office, law enforcment or the military swore an oath to protect the governemnt.
However, not a one has ever done so, rather, we all swore oaths “to protect and defend the US Constitution (and perhaps state constitutions)from all enemies, foriegn and domestic....”
No mention of a “government” is there?
You can’t teach an old dog new tricks, right?
I’m sure the British authorities were doing the same prior to Lexington too.
Comrade, all the LEO’s have police union commissars assigned to their stations to monitor and report on those disloyal to the regimne that keeps the unions in the style to which they have become accustomed.
At best I believe you will see some LEO’s chagrined at what they are forced to do to normal citizens, but they will do as they are ordered.
We ignore this at our peril.
