Defending Against Enemies Domestic
Investors.com ^ | March 30, 2010 | INVESTORS BUSINESS DAILY Staff

Posted on 03/30/2010 5:08:26 PM PDT by Kaslin

Homeland Security: Forget about foreign jihadists getting nukes or planting bombs in their underwear. The real enemies, some say, are domestic militia groups who play at war and those nasty Tea Party racists.

The raid on a Michigan militia group accused of plotting war against the government will no doubt feed into the arguments of those who claim in the wake of health reform that the vast right-wing conspiracy is not only angry, but armed and dangerous.

According to an Associated Press report, "Authorities said the arrests underscored the dangers of homegrown right-wing extremism of the sort seen in the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing that killed 168 people."

We do not minimize the threat of domestic terror, whether it's a Tim McVeigh blowing up a federal building or eco-terrorists using violence to deter the use of animals in medical experiments and otherwise protecting the Earth. Apparently there are no left-wing extremists.

We do object when political opponents of the liberal agenda are lumped in with these loonies, painted with a broad brush as dangerous right-wing extremists. Violent and mindless opposition to the government is to be fought and condemned; mere political dissent should not be.

Rush Limbaugh was accused by many on the left of being a motivating force behind McVeigh's decision to bomb the federal building in Oklahoma City in 1995 by fomenting anti-government sentiment on his radio show. Today, Tea Party activists and opponents of health care reform are accused of doing the same thing. No one knows if the Michigan militia oppose health care reform.

Scuttlebutt is that there is a gang of ne'er-do-well terrorists holed up in some Building on 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue in Washington D.C... Someone should alert the FBI. These terrorist have apparently sworn oaths to destroy America and the Constitution... so scuttlebutt has it...

Again I ask, at what point does the military get involved to RESTORE the Constitution that they (myself included) swore an oath to defend and protect?

Please forgive my ignorance with asking but I really want to know why they won't do what is necessary to protect FREEDOME at HOME!!!

A question I asked my commanding officers while I was Enlisted in my State’s National Guard. I never got a really satisfying answer, but I did write something on it after coming back from Iraq:

They look like my neigbors. I like them.

Innocent until proven guilty.

Lets see what they did.

I don't believe all the junk on the MSM.

How can 8 dirt poor farmers be a seditious threat to the government of the USA when we have a dozen or more Muslim para military trianing camps around the country who send their members to Pakistan and Yemen for training (tourists intone the FBI)?

IMHO , Obama wanted a Waco II shoot out and didn't get one. The orders came from the top but " They had to be taken down before they acted," a crisis from which the nation has been saved. Thank you..... thank you pretend president Obama!LOL.

Too bad such vigilence against Muslims was not in place at Fort Hood?

Allow me to introduce you to the new niggers of America, white trash militia all across the country? Think it will fly?Buahahahahahahaha!

If it does there is soon going to be a lot of shooting I am afraid.

Lets see Obama go after the real militia threat to America.Leave the dirt poor farmers alone, and while you are at it, secure our southern border. Leave the white trash militia alone, they will come for you in November no matter what you do, no matter how many you shoot, Obama.

Haven't LEOs also been vigilant about going after the tree hugging criminals in PETA and the huge contingent of anarchists who inevitably attempt to destroy cities in their demonstrations? I am angry with the U.S. Army about the murderous terrorist Dr. Hassan at Fort Hood, but there is no way I can logically condemn all LEOs because they arrested 8 members of what apparently seems to be a small group of militia-wannabes.

But Hillary Clinton said that dissent was patriotic - during the previous President's administration.

Give it a rest. Anyone who joins the “Michigan Militia,” not realizing that every second member is FBI or ATF is a doofus.

The arrest was pure Kabuki theatre.

does that include the right to throw off the oppression of tyranny?

They look SOOOO SCARY!!!!

The only threat from the boy in the top row is that he may give your daughter Mono (or use up all your Oxycream). The first guy looks like he's about to say "I believe you have my stapler". And the two guys starting the bottom row look like they have done a little too much "quality control" of Dominos' new pizza recipe.

Obama has caused more irreversible damage to the USA than the japs at pearl harbor , Osama at 9-11, McVie at OKC, Janet Reno at Waco, ruby ridge, all the activities of ELF or all of the damage that all of the kook fringe groups combined could ever accomplish.

There is no comparison to the enemy that Obama is

You got it.And they do not know what to do ,campaigning will not work, they seek to scare us, that doesn't work, next they will seek to persecute some of us.

That is the progression of standard fascist juntas.

What really irks me is the constant references to Tim McVeigh. Yes, he was a passenger in that Ryder truck of explosives, but who drove the truck?

Let me tell you who drove the truck - his name is Commander Hussein Al-Husseini. At the time of the bombing he was a member of the Iraqi Republican Guard and home based in Basra.

The money man, the guy who dispensed cash and orders, was a member of the PLO who owned rental property in OKC. There were a number of Arab/Middle Eastern men involved in the OKC bombing.

Bill Clinton knew about it. He wrote a memo, sent to all FBI field officers working on this case, ordering them to cease looking into the ME connection and DESTROY THIS MEMO!

Heh-heh, someone didn’t destroy their copy of the memo. That person gave it to an investigative reporter by the name of Jayna Davis. It is because of that brave woman we know WHO really pulled off a terrorist act against the U.S. government - all fingers point to the late Saddam Hussein.

“...they will seek to persecute some of us.”

And we will shame them before the nation for doing so. We will recite their transgressions and call them by their proper name - Fascists.

Using violence will only give Obama and his bully boys a reason to declare martial law.

Then again, if Obama uses organized national thugs, we do have a right to protect ourselves.

Candor, Davis’s book is a hell’uva read. The part that chilled me was finding that my government knew ahead of time that the Murrah Building was a target of ME terrorists.

The Third Terrorist, by Jayna Davis. A must read for everyone at Free Republic who craves truth.

This might be the most embarrassing pic I’ve seen of our government. It looks like a group photo after a gay wedding.

No wonder the terrorists think we are weak. Look at that! holy crap.

Have any of THEM made a statement on camera about their supposed cockamamie plan? Until I hear it from them, the whole thing sounds like a setup to associate "Christian Militia" = "Right Wing Extremists" = "All Tea Party Members". We're not buying it. . .
