Skip to comments.FBI warns of threat from anti-government extremists
Posted on 02/07/2012 7:52:42 AM PST by Twotone
Anti-government extremists opposed to taxes and regulations pose a growing threat to local law enforcement officers in the United States, the FBI warned on Monday.
These extremists, sometimes known as "sovereign citizens," believe they can live outside any type of government authority, FBI agents said at a news conference.
The extremists may refuse to pay taxes, defy government environmental regulations and believe the United States went bankrupt by going off the gold standard.

I think I might be an extremist.
FBI thinks they work for King George. ;-)
Yeah, that sure is threatening...
By the way: Since when is a citizen having a particular belief any concern of the government's?
May? The FBI sure has a caseload then, starting with the entire Obama cabinet and Timmy Geitner at the top of the list..........
Voting for non-Democrats is extremist activity.
GET BACK IN LINE!!!!!!!!!!!
I am an extremist, but only because every body else (with the exception of my fellow FReepers & sundry others) has moved left.
I think it’s important to point that out to folks now & again.
It really does sound like they’re describing the average OWS protestor more than your typical Tea party type. Look at the evidence: they live in tents on public property; they flaunt US laws by using and trafficking drugs; we have seen them defecating in cop cars; they obviously don’t pay taxes because they’re unemployed; and they’re associated with radical left wing fire bomb throwing anarchist types.
Who is threatening to whom here? And who gives a rip what signal is being sent? We probably need to know who the jackboots are going to be anyway, and sooner than later. The ones who recognize exactly what is happening here are aging fast. The very young can’t even spell collapse, or tyranny, or Marxism.
You’ve opened this thread....!
And now, YOU are on THE LIST!
Ditto all that! You read my mind.
But I am a master of disguise & they will only have a clue as to my true identity! ;-)
Actually, I’m probably on LOTS of lists these days.
Obama and his admin have:
1) Support the Muslim Brotherhood and Al Quida take overs of Egypt and Libya.
2) Do not lift a finger to help true liberty protesters in Iran.
3) Decide not to indict or go after Black Panthers who blatantly stood outside polling/vitong places in 2008 and intimidate voters.
4) HAs brazenly flaunted and broken US law to provide illegal arms to MExican Drug cartels in the hopes of border violence so they cancrack down on US gun onwership, and then lied under oath abpout it and conspired to cover it up with Fast and Furios (http://www.jeffhead.com/fandf.htm)
5) Call an ISlamic Jihad attack by a traitor ISlamic US Officer at Ft. Hood “office violence.”
6) Refuse to call our foight against Islamic Terrorists a War on Terror, but instead label it “foreign expediency operations,” or some such babble.
7) Warned Americans that returning American servicemen, who have risked their lives for our liberty against the Islamic extremeist, may be terrorist minded themselves if they are Christian.
8) Disdain Bible clinging, gun-toting Americans as extremist...both of which, BTW, are rights enumerated in the Constitution.
9) MAde political war on Christian charities and Church run hospitals by demanding that the provide abortions in their facilities against the basic tennants and beliefs of the chuirchs that operate those charities and hospitals.
10) Now warn that American soveriegn citizens (which we all are meant to be) themselves mught be “terrorists.”
It could not be more clear. The Obama administration is doubling down on its efforts to declare war on and oppress and hound and ultimately find reason to incarcerate American citizens who have faith in, believe in, and rely upon the fundamental moral values that created this nation and have kept it strong, free, prosperous and safe for over 230 years.
Obama is an abject marxist Ideolog and must be defeated in 2012
America at the Crossroads of History
coming back around...American citizens were high on the list of publicly announced threats the first months bozo took office....
“RC one - It really does sound like theyre describing the average OWS protestor more than your typical Tea party type...”
We currently have an adminsitration that supports ‘The OCCUPIERS’, and what they stand for ~ Class Warfare.
Ideology vs. civility
We have a Canadian website (funded by Soros) inciting to “return to the spirit of 1968 (Convention CHAOS)”.
Who are the criminals ?
The ethics of this administration is ‘upsde down’.
if i choose paper over plastic, i'm an extremist now?
as for going bankrupt, it didn't happen when the US went off the gold standard... that's just when it started
and i'm pretty sure the majority of ron paul supporters would be classified a extremists under this thinking
of course, having went Galt and stopped working... thereby not supplying them with the amount of tax revenue they were use to... i'm sure i'm now classified as an extremist
Watch out, Sheriff Joe!
i’m 100% certain if you believe article 2 section 1 should not be discarded...
you must be an extremist
The Democrats aren’t afraid of guns. They just want to be sure they’re the ones telling people who to point the guns at.
