Two weeks before the U.S. Department of Homeland Security penned its controversial report warning against "right-wing extremists" in the United States, it generated a memo defining dozens of additional groups – animal rights activists, black separatists, tax protesters, even worshippers of the Norse god Odin – as potential "threats."

Though the "Domestic Extremism Lexicon" was reportedly rescinded almost immediately, Benjamin Sarlin of The Daily Beast recently obtained and published online a copy of the unclassified memo, dated March 26, 2009.

While many of the groups listed in the lexicon – such as Aryan prison gangs and neo-Nazis – may indeed be widely considered extremists, others will likely take offense at being described as a potential "threat."

It's so broad that unless you sit home and never say a word against the govt. you will be on the list.

Won't work. As he's already done, Obama will send ACORN activists to knock at your door and demand a position statement from you, and whatever it is (or isn't) they'll write it down...

Tax protesters, was that one added since the Tea Parties? This is so silly on their part, what are they going to do, every time one of us sneezes add another thing we do to the list of threats? What horrible people.
