Posted on 04/20/2009 9:48:35 AM PDT by Nachum
Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano blamed "politicization" for a week of furor over a report that warned "right-wing extremists" were recruiting veterans of the Iraq and Afghanistan wars.
She also said the Obama administration's veterans programs were necessary to combat such extremism.

Let me know if you want on or off the ping list.
I just watched 24 on Hulu and realized that this season is about “Domestic Terrorists”.
Last I watch of 24.
I quit watching the minute I saw jeannie golck face on it
She regrets it was leaked to the media.
clueless treasonous Janet Bw**ch idiot puppet mouth!
It was WRITTEN POLITICIZED. IT WAS PLANNED POLITICZED.
You just regret there’s still some folks with insufficiently washed brains awake enough to notice!
I dealt with it and made fun of her with the other FReepers.
I hardly call cutting their health care while increasing health care of illegals
is an effective strategy to buy them off.
Vets are smarter than slugs . . .
in contrast to D.C. politicians who are dumber than slugs.
Criminalizing dissent because apparently dissent is no longer patriotic.
Lib idiots still have their bumper stickers though so memo not out yet.
Sho the hell does she think she is, Elanore Roosevelt?
I can only imagine what’s in the report that is classified.
It ain’t “politicization”, it’s STUPIDITY.
That’s OTHER people’s dissent.
Once in power—NO DISSENT IS ALLOWED.
I’d love to see a mass march on Washington DC
with one word resoundingly carried to every political office in the city . . .
The loyal opposition must demand that Obama call for her resignation. If this is not done NOW, then we have taken a large step toward a NAZI propaganda campaign that will end in fascist dictatorship.
What the HELL is wrong with the Republicans. And why do they only talk about the insult to vets, bad as it is. She also said that anyone who supports the dignity of human life is an extremist and a potential terrorist. Say, what? It’s virtuous to support the Culture of Death but extremist to support the value of human life?
She demonized many groups, including veterans, right-to-lifers, Christians, and anyone with real religious values (except maybe Muslims).
“Lib idiots still have their bumper stickers though so memo not out yet.”
I still have mine! It used to say; “WE’RE SCREWED: 2008.” I stuck on a mailbox number, and now it says; “WE’RE SCREWED; 2009.”
Napolitano should have her US citizenship revoked as a baseline of punishment for her nasty remarks. This says more about this clipped haired, mean-faced deviant than all her past public stupidity.
So let me get this straight.
Nanny Napolitano blamed “politicization” for a week of furor over the report that claims I am a terrorist and in the same breath reassures me Comrade Zero’s veteran policy will prevent extremism? The way I read this sentence is this administration still believes me to be a terrorist but when Zero gets around to offering his “touch” on the VA, I will at least not be an extreme one?
Must be some old Cuyahoga River water in that fishbowl!
She thinks it was politicized, eh? That’s rich.
I’m wondering how “regret” can be used to describe the act of someone other than oneself. Very convenient word nowadays.
Now, all someone has to do, os anger a powerful enough Democrat, and whoosh! Off Limbaugh goes, to a DemoFascist FEMA "summer/re-education camp"!
still no elected Republicans calling for her head...and the strongest condemnation thusfar is from a southern Democrat
Personally, I think it shows a lot of diversity awareness that we have a dude in charge of DHS that likes to cross dress.
I also heard she/he just won a powerlifting contest, having beat out Janet Reno.
What did the stupid cow think was going to happen?
She started it, not the vets.
As insulting as this document is, I believe the timing was a shot across our bow, just before the tea parties. The writing was amatuer or hurried or both, but I think the intent was scare us from attending the tea parties and engaging in our political discourse. Yes, it may also be quite serious on their part, but I do think the larger meaning was a scare tactic. Just my two cents.
And yesterday it was reported that a returning marine was caught with a firearm and “explosive components” in his checked luggage. Talk about peculiar timing.
Typical. There's nothing wrong with anything she's done. She's just unhappy that some crazy rightwingers took offense to her eminently reasonable proposals.
Napolitano does not regret politicizing yet another federal agency to go after Obama’s political opponents. Napolitano regrets that her intended victims are objecting.
The Napolitano Gestapo resembles the Keystone Cops more than the SS or the KGB. If they can’t stop pregnant women from waddling across the border at will, I can’t imagine they’ll be very effective in stopping a real threat, let alone a bunch of tax-protesting grandmothers in Sacramento.
