Posted on 04/13/2009 6:29:41 AM PDT by Old Teufel Hunden
WASHINGTON A newly unclassified Department of Homeland Security report warns against the possibility of violence by unnamed "right-wing extremists" concerned about illegal immigration, increasing federal power, restrictions on firearms, abortion and the loss of U.S. sovereignty and singles out returning war veterans as particular threats. The report, titled "Right-wing Extremism: Current Economic and Political Climate Fueling Resurgence in Radicalization and Recruitment," dated April 7, states that "threats from white supremacist and violent anti-government groups during 2009 have been largely rhetorical and have not indicated plans to carry out violent acts." However, the report goes on to suggest worsening economic woes, potential new legislative restrictions on firearms and "the return of military veterans facing significant challenges reintegrating into their communities could lead to the potential emergence of terrorist groups or lone wolf extremists capable of carrying out violent attacks."

I hope the vets are paying attention. This is what the Obama regime thinks of you.
Right Wing Extremist. That’s what they call you these days if you don’t have a picture of Vladamir Lenin in your wallet.
Ready the camps.
All easily anticipated fallout from the PATRIOT Act. Laws stay on the books, even though those in leadership change. And, of course, governments always seek to expand their control, power and authority.
From the REPORT:
* (U) Rightwing extremism in the United States can be broadly divided into those groups, movements, and adherents that are primarily hate-oriented (based on hatred of particular religious, racial or ethnic groups), and those that are mainly antigovernment, rejecting federal authority in favor of state or local authority, or rejecting government authority entirely. It may include groups and individuals that are dedicated to a single issue, such as opposition to abortion or immigration.
From the REPORT:

(U//FOUO) Proposed imposition of firearms restrictions and weapons bans likely would attract new members into the ranks of rightwing extremist groups, as well as potentially spur some of them to begin planning and training for violence against the government. The high volume of purchases and stockpiling of weapons and ammunition by rightwing extremists in anticipation of restrictions and bans in some parts of the country continue to be a primary
concern to law enforcement.
(U//FOUO) Returning veterans possess combat skills and experience that are attractive to rightwing extremists. DHS/I&A is concerned that rightwing extremists will attempt to recruit and radicalize returning veterans in order to
boost their violent capabilities.
“Right Wing Extremist. Thats what they call you these days if you dont have a picture of Vladamir Lenin in your wallet.”
Or have a copy of the Constitution in your possession.
Will Tim Robbins again declare that there is a chill wind blowing in America and that dissent is being silenced?
This is Stalinist. The Pravda Media serves the DNC. They were not restricted in their coverage of the last 8 years. They were not prosecuted as enemies of the State. Even when they were in DIRECT communication with members of Al Qaida (which is the dirty secret as to why they opposed stateside wiretaps of international calls with members of AQ).
“ (U//FOUO) Militia membership continued to decline after the turn of the
millennium as a result of law enforcement disruptions of multiple terrorist plots
linked to violent rightwing extremists, new legislation banning paramilitary
training, and militia frustration that the revolution never materialized.”
I’m not aware of laws forbidding paramilitary training. Anybody have a clue?
From the REPORT: (Boy, they didn’t waste any time, did they?)
(U//FOUO) DHS/I&A assesses that a number of economic and political factors are driving a resurgence in rightwing extremist recruitment and radicalization activity. Despite similarities to the climate of the 1990s, the threat posed by lone wolves and small terrorist cells is more pronounced than in past years. In addition, the historical election of an African American president and the prospect of policy changes are proving to be a driving force for rightwing extremist recruitment and radicalization.
(U) A recent example of the potential violence associated with a rise in rightwing extremism may be found in the shooting deaths of three police officers in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, on 4 April 2009. The alleged gunmans reaction
reportedly was influenced by his racist ideology and belief in antigovernment conspiracy theories related to gun confiscations, citizen detention camps, and a Jewish-controlled one world government.
Recall that in the 1990s, the Clinton administration took the FBI’s eyes OFF of the threat posed by international terrorism (training for the 9-11 attacks in America) to send the FBI on a wild goose chase “investigating” a false claim of a “rash” of “racist” church fires.
“concerned about illegal immigration, increasing federal power, restrictions on firearms, abortion and the loss of U.S. sovereignty”
I’d consider it an honor to be among them, considering LEFT wing extremists populate the current administration.
Hitler used the Jews as a scapegoat - lots of stories about how horrible they were - but NO PROOF.
It's the same here. Show us the proof of damage - not words put in by dem shills ginning up fears in chat rooms.
And yeah, Timothy McVeigh was a monster - so was Bill Ayers.
This sort of thing is Janet Napolitano personified. The only sort of armed citizens she supports are dykes with pikes.
Another interesting companion article by Roger Hedgecock commenting on this report:
(U) Illegal Immigration
(U//FOUO) Rightwing extremists were concerned during the 1990s with the perception that illegal immigrants were taking away American jobs through their willingness to work at significantly lower wages. They also opposed free trade agreements, arguing that these arrangements resulted in Americans losing jobs to countries such as Mexico.
(U//FOUO) Over the past five years, various rightwing extremists, including militias and white supremacists, have adopted the immigration issue as a call to action, rallying point, and recruiting tool. Debates over appropriate immigration levels and enforcement policy generally fall within the realm of protected political speech under the First Amendment, but in some cases, anti-immigration or strident pro-enforcement fervor has been directed against specific groups and has the potential to turn violent.
(U//FOUO) DHS/I&A assesses that rightwing extremist groups frustration over a perceived lack of government action on illegal immigration has the potential to incite individuals or small groups toward violence. If such violence were to occur, it likely would be isolated, small-scale, and directed at specific immigration-related targets.
(U//FOUO) DHS/I&A notes that prominent civil rights organizations have observed an increase in anti-Hispanic crimes over the past five years.
(U) In April 2007, six militia members were arrested for various weapons and explosives violations. Open source reporting alleged that those arrested had discussed and conducted surveillance for a machinegun attack on Hispanics.
(U) A militia member in Wyoming was arrested in February 2007 after communicating his plans to travel to the Mexican border to kill immigrants crossing into the United States.
Check this out..!
In other words...patriotic Americans?
Well of course. THose who don’t subscribe to the gay agenda, nanny statism, class warfare, handing our sovereignty to globalist busy bodies, “diversity”, and other sundry left-wing wet dreams must be dangerous extremists.
FYI *MAJOR PING*....if you haven’t seen this...for you or your ping lists.
For you, or if of interest, for your ping lists.
Everybody still dig the “patriot” act?
As more proof this was written by idiots, note the reference to the assault weapons ban imposing a national waiting period for purchasing guns. I don’t remember that.
This is required reading for us.
Check out the REPORT referred to in the article.
Sure reads to me like they are referring, in a lot of instances directly to Glenn Beck, doesn’t it?
“This is required reading for us.”
Yes, for all of us.
Unfortunately the article with the important link to this report is found in World Net Daily and won’t be getting the attention that is needed. IMO, it should be breaking news for all freepers, but I can’t see FR putting anything by WND in anything other than “chat”.
"Open source reporting of wartime ammunition shortages has likely spurred rightwing extremistsas well as law-abiding Americansto make bulk purchases of ammunition."
Sounds like "right-wing extremists" has been redefined to mean "middle America".
BARACK OBAMA PUBLISHES ENEMIES LIST, CONSPIRACY WEB (Wednesday, July 8, 2008)
Barack Obama has published an enemies list and conspiracy web on his presidential campaign website, Fight the Smears.
The site lists conservative activists David Bossie, Floyd Brown, Bob Perry, Craig Shirley, Bruce Hawkins and James Lacy.
The Obama campaign posted an accompanying graphic that lays out a web of connections between the conservatives, groups they represent and their efforts opposing liberals, including "Swift Boat", "Clinton Impeachment" and "Willie Horton Ad"...
Considering that Jane Fonda and Bill Ayers were never prosecuted for treason, those in charge know nothing of patriotism.
I thought this a serious enough event to inform my senator of, and I would urge others to do so as well.
Don’t worry about that, we are there. We will be one of the first to be rounded up.
(U//FOUO) DHS/I&A assesses that lone wolves and small terrorist cells embracing violent rightwing extremist ideology are the most dangerous domestic terrorism threat in the United States. Information from law enforcement and nongovernmental organizations indicates lone wolves and small terrorist cells have shown intentand, in some cases, the capabilityto commit violent acts.
(U//LES) DHS/I&A has concluded that white supremacist lone wolves pose the most significant domestic terrorist threat because of their low profile and autonomyseparate from any formalized groupwhich hampers warning efforts.
(U//FOUO) Similarly, recent state and municipal law enforcement reporting has warned of the dangers of rightwing extremists embracing the tactics of leaderless resistance and of lone wolves carrying out acts of violence.
(U//FOUO) Arrests in the past several years of radical militia members in Alabama, Arkansas, and Pennsylvania on firearms, explosives, and other related violations indicates the emergence of small, well-armed extremist groups in some rural areas.
Looks like they are on to us! Maybe the Boy Scouts would provide a good cover.
And if the document is a fake??
That's NOT how they're selling it to the law enforcement community. Trust me - we're the Joos in pre Hitler Germany in their minds - and they have yet to show proof of any organized crime. (As I said McVeigh was a criminal - just like Ayers. But Ayers isn't used to discredit everyday dems - think about it) AND NO - going to tea parties is NOT A CRIME.
The “Ayers” of 1968 ARE the DNC of today.
They are also the anchors of the nightly news.
The rioters outside AND inside the DNC convention of 1968 are the establishment Left of today.
Look at John Kerry, Thomas Hayden, and others. From agitators to politicians.
Uh-oh...we’re on a DHS Watchlist...Ping!
When this idiot was elected, I thought:
1) He would be detered from radical action due to the lack of landslide vote
2) He would proceed cautiously in order to prevent a backlash from the voters.
I am now convinced this is the most dangerour administration to ever sit in Washington and that it is led by a man who is either a radical doctrinaire socialist, or an anti-American “plant”, funded and supported by people from outside this nation.
He is moving as quickly as possible to implement his socialist agenda to forstall any possible opposition in COngress or by the electorate once America realizes what they have in store for us.
I forsee curtailment of freedom of speech on television and radio and supression of Intnernet blogs and forums like this one, as well as total confiscation of all weapons from the public.
In 2008 I believe the American public elected a man as President who has no intention of ever leaving office.
