Homeland Security Warns of Rise in Right-Wing Extremism
The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) report entitled Rightwing Extremism: Current Economic and Political Climate Fueling Resurgence in Radicalization and Recruitment, dated April 7, 2009, is apparently an unclassified summary of a larger classified report.
1. The summary contains few proper names, has no footnotes of any significance, lists very few sources, and is drafted with a prejudice against anyone who criticizes the role of the federal government in our lives today. It lumps together in its definition of rightwing extremism hate groups, anti-government groups, and single issue groups such as opposition to abortion or immigration.
My guess is that the sentiments revealed in the report I read are the tip of an iceberg that the DHS would prefer to keep submerged until it needs to reveal it. This iceberg is the heavy-hand of government; a government with large and awful eyes, in whose heart there is no love for freedom, and on whose face there is no smile.
2. The document itself cautions the reader that the document is not to be released to the public, the media, or other personnel who do not have a valid need-to-know without prior approval of the DHS. The document refers to itself as one of a series of intelligence assessments intended to deter, prevent, preempt, or respond to terrorist attacks against the United States.
3. The thrust of this report is that in the present environment of economic instability, returning military veterans, those who fear of the loss of Second Amendment-protected rights, those threatened by an African-American president, and those who fear Jewish financial elites could all be a fertile breeding ground for groups whose power and ideas the government hates and fears.

I fear all dishonest financial elites, along with liberal elites.
I'm also Jewish, so the Jewish author of this moonbat lefty report can kiss my tuchis!
ping for later.
You are a terrorist if:
-You are kind and believe in Christ
-You defended the people of this country and believe in Christ
-Help others and believe is Christ
-If you said the word “gun” and believe in Christ
Oh, the most important thing, if you don’t believe what the radical left believes in ...and believe in Christ, you most certainly are a terrorist!
“The Party seeks power entirely for its own sake. We are not interested in the good of others; we are interested solely in power. Not wealth or luxury or long life or happiness: only power, pure power. What pure power means you will understand presently. We are different from all the oligarchies of the past, in that we know what we are doing. All the others, even those who resembled ourselves, were cowards and hypocrites. The German Nazis and the Russian Communists came very close to us in their methods,
but they never had the courage to recognize their own motives. They pretended, perhaps they even believed, that they had seized power unwillingly and for a limited time,
and that just round the corner there lay a paradise where human beings would be free and equal.
We are not like that. We know that no one ever seizes power with the intention of relinquishing it.
Power is not a means; it is an end.
One does not establish a dictatorship in order to safeguard a revolution; one makes the revolution in order to establish the dictatorship.
The object of persecution is persecution.
The object of torture is torture.
The object of power is power”.
-George Orwell, 1984
an interesting author found in the by-line, no?
Amen! Well said.
Remember that this bulletin is the shortcut version of the full classified document.
Now, one can only guess what is in the full classified version.
Wait, if we are now all “terrorists”, I guess we’ll receive a bailout?

Passing on the LEFT not advised
That’ll be the new rear window sticker on my truck.. above the NRA patch.
Madoff is the kind of Jew people should fear but we have also had our share of country club, blue blood WASPS who have raped this country as well.
LOL...I'm a veteran, pro-Life, 2nd Amendment Advocate.
I sometimes fear myself.
Eradicate Left Wing Extremists in Office! Vote them out of office!
I thought that was from the “Progressive Guide to Taking Over America.”
So why would the writer come up with something like that unless she was just sucking up?
We need to shake government agencies like a dirty throw rug.
report probably outsourced from the $outhern Poverty law center
Orwell was off by only a generation.
Hey, does the DHS maintain a web site or list somewhere of us dangerous right wing extremists? I’d like to sign up. Hell, we should all sign up. Bombard them with names and addresses to investigate. It’s a list I’d be proud to be on ... kinda like the Declaration of Independence was for its signers.
There ain’t enough of them to control all of us.
Vet, Christian, pro-life, pro-Constitution and anti-tyranny. I am screwed.
Perhaps now would be a good time for a 21st century version of the “Pentagon Papers”.
Someone on the inside could leak the entire report.
This DHS release is a self-evident lie...were there even any rumors of an uptick in ‘right wing extremism’ the Democrats’ allies in the media would have been on this months ago. If there was a shred of evidence it would have been 24/7 on ABCCBSNBCCNNMSNBC and in NYTLATWP (and the rest of the skunks).
That could turn out to be the scariest thing anybody’s ever said to me. I guess we’ll see, really soon.
The first step for totalitarian regimes is to identify people and groups that may resist when it comes time for them to make their move to assume total power.
The document refers to itself as one of a series of intelligence assessments intended to deter, prevent, preempt, or respond to terrorist attacks against the United States.
I thought there were no more terrorist attacks only man-caused human catastrophes. Or is it terrorism only if it can be linked to a conservative cause?
It appears that other Jews were the primary victims of his crimes.
If so, I'll take being an extremist over a libtard any day:
Unlike them, I love my country, extremely.
So Janet, let me say this as nice as I can: Piss off twit!!!
oops!! Do I go on a terrorist watch list now?? I'm so sceered!!
Maybe we can get on the cover of Newsweek with a title, “We’re All Terrorists Now”.
Lou Dobbs all but said so outright last night.
He said something to the effect that it was done in conjunction with a prominent organization that monitors hate groups. And who was his guest? Mark Potok from SPLC.
Potok supported part of the report (the "rightwing hate group" stuff) but said there is no solid evidence that the economic downturn is creating a risk of terrorism.
I cant stand those pukes.
I would like to apologize for that picture but we need to know what we are really fighting!
they probably fed the Missouri Highway Patrol the same BS for a similar report it put out last month
There are a lot of women in photos I am seeing of protests.
“Maybe we can get on the cover of Newsweek with a title, Were All Terrorists Now.’
Eradicate Left Wing Extremists in Office! Vote them out of office!
In a landslide!....JUST SAY NO TO LEFT WING NUTJOBS!
Ahh yes- but never forget Sarah is on your side!
Gack!....there went my lunch!
Interesting. Good stuff — Isn’t Janet Napalitano, the DIRECTOR of the DHS, Andrew Napalitano’s SISTER?!?
I find THAT dynamic fascinating!
Shep on Fox is now trying to play this down and belittle those that attach importance to it. Further attempts to build up Obama and blame this on Bush.
They can’t call this shot back.
Is that true?
Agreed, but most of those guys died in extreme pain and/or poverty.
Shep has that homeland security woman on and another guy and they are saying there is also a left wing assessment, trying to take the heat off this right wing extremist document. When that right wing document was discovered was it on the White House Website alone? Has anyone seen a document addressing Left Wing Extremists like they are now claiming exists?
There’s a reason that a .22 cartridge fits a 1/8” pipe and a 12 guage fits a 3/4” pipe...
Yep! This country was founded by religios nuts with guns and dhs has no idea.
I remember that sniper in dc a few years back...imagine one of those in every city in the country, just sayin’. BTW that clown was muslim!
