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.

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!
