Homeland Security on Lookout for “Militia Extremists” (Satire)
Semi-News/Semi-Satire ^ | 10 Feb 2012 | John Semmens

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. Let’s not forget that the worst threats to our government may come from within.”

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.

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.

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?

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.

In statement after statement, the Department shows that it is designed to suppress traditional American values, cultural norms & independent thought. Someone with time on their hands, would spend it well compiling a dossier on the various pronouncements, warnings, memos & directives of these bureaucrats, to demonstrate the very clear pattern that is now emerging.

We ignore this at our peril.

especially provisions protecting the rights to freedom of speech, bearing arms, and bars to so-called unreasonable search.”

From what friends in law enforcement tell me, every person who gets arrested suddenly becomes a fan of those parts of the constitution.

You have nailed it. What you state is the basis for describing these people as usurpers of power. They are making up their own rules; ignoring the compact they were sworn to defend; betraying their oaths, and inflicting a new tyranny on those they were supposed to serve.

This is not a Right/Left issue; it goes to honor, decency, duty & respect. There is no conceivable basis on which such a attack on our own people & their most basic rights, can be justified. None!

Write a book, John. Swift could take your correspondence course. Stop getting me!!

I mean, is this actually satire? Didn’t they do something like this already?

I don’t see the purpose of John Semmens’ “semi-news/semi-satire” at all. It’s not news, and it’s not satire. It does not enlighten, and essentially ends up spreading misinformation.

A waste of time, if you ask me. I almost never read it anymore, though I do sometimes click on these posts to see the comments and note how many people get sucked in.

Agree....this semi-satire is boring and unimaginative, actually. It is intentionally designed to get a rise out of Freepers who don't know his schtick. It is a waste of time.

No it's not. It's just stupid, self-indulgent nonsense and contributes nothing to the advancement of our cause, except to create an opportunity for conservatives to look stupid if they happen spread the misinformation in these articles.

He won’t get banned...he follows the rules. You just have to always be sure to read the complete title and his “Semi-news/Semi-Satire” disclaimer....it is still childish, nonetheless in my opinion.

Completely agree. We are about business here about how to keep Mitt Romney from getting the GOP nomination. This crap only diverts our attention.

Almost got me this time! It’s hard to do satire these days, because real life keeps catching up - what was absurd yesterday is politically correct tomorrow! John, thanks for the post.

Well, you may be right about him not getting banned. Nevertheless, I hit the "abuse" button and asked the moderators to ban these articles anyway.

Thank you for the (satire) label. My blood pressure had already gone up a couple points by the time I got to the end of the title.

Don't have to dig too deep in history to come upon similar comments in the old Soviet Union, Nazi Germany and Fascist Italy.

Somehow it seems there is a correlation between the bravado of "it can't happen here" and it happening first to those who uttered those famous last words.
