Homeland Security Secretary Napolitano to Resign, Called Pro-Lifers Terrorists
Life News ^ | July 12, 2013 | Steven Ertelt

Multiple news sources confirmed today that Department of Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano will resign. The pro-abortion Obama official is slated to become the next president of the University of California system and the official announcement about her resignation will come later today.

During her tenure, Napolitano aggressively targeted pro-life advocates and a number of incidents occurred that had her agency calling pro-life people terrorists or comparing them.

A January 2012 Department of Homeland Security document made the rounds on the Internet and it painted an unflattering

picture of pro-life Americans.

The January, 31, 2012 document is titled, “Hot Spots of Terrorism and Other Crimes in the United States, 1970 to 2008″ and was released by the Behavioral Sciences Division of the department.

Under a headline, “Terrorism” on page 9, the manual describes the frequency of terrorist attacks and details what it terms “category of ideological motivation” to describe groups it believes are more prone to acts of terrorism. One section includes pro-life advocates:

Single Issue: groups or individuals that obsessively focus on very specific or narrowly-defined causes (e.g., anti-abortion, anti-Catholic, anti-nuclear, anti-Castro).

Later the document includes tables that graphically show the number of attacks and the manual, again, claims pro-life people are behind them.

“Table 6 shows the concentration of single issue terrorism for the four decades spanned by the data. Recall, single issue events include such attacks as anti-abortion, anti-Catholic, or anti-nuclear. Interestingly, among the types of terrorism examined here, single issue terrorism is probably the most temporally diverse, with substantial numbers of attacks occurring in all four decades,” the Obama administration paper says.

That wasn’t the first time the Obama administration has referred to pro-lifers as terrorists.

In January 2010, President Barack Obama’s nominee to head the agency charged with keeping American travelers safe from terrorism said as much. A video showed Transportation Security Administration nominee Erroll Southers including pro-life advocates in a list of terrorist groups.

The documentary asked Southers, “Which home-grown terrorist groups pose the greatest danger to the U.S.”

Southers explained, “Most of the domestic groups that we pay attention to here are white supremacist groups. They’re anti-government, in most cases anti-abortion, they are usually survivalist type in nature, identity oriented.”

“Those groups are groups that claim to be extremely anti-government and Christian identity oriented,” he continues.

In May 2009, details emerged about a terrorism dictionary the Obama administration had put together in March. The “Domestic Extremism Lexicon,” was essentially a terrorism and political extremism dictionary for the Obama administration’s internal use.

The March 26, 2009 document features numerous definitions and the headline “antiabortion extremism,” appears on page two of the eleven-page manual.

The Obama administration called pro-life advocates violent and claims they employ racist overtones in engaging in criminal actions.

The definition read: “A movement of groups or individuals who are virulently antiabortion and advocate violence against providers of abortion-related services, their employees, and their facilities. Some cite various racist and anti-Semitic beliefs to justify their criminal activities.

That followed a report the Department of Homeland Security sent out saying pro-life advocates were right-wing extremists.

In that document, the Department of Homeland Security warned law officials about a supposed rise in “rightwing extremist activity,” saying the poor economy and presence of a black president could spark problems.

According to the Washington Times, a footnote attached to the nine-page report from the Homeland Security Office of Intelligence and Analysis say the activities of pro-life advocates is included in “rightwing extremism in the United States.”

“It may include groups and individuals that are dedicated to a sing-issue, such as opposition to abortion or immigration,” the warning said.

 

Before coming to the Obama administration, Napolitano constantly chagrined pro-life advocates with her vetoes of pro-life legislation as governor of Arizona. She he vetoed both a partial-birth abortion ban as well as a bill to strengthen parental consent requirements.

Napolitano refused to sign measures to make sure taxpayer funds don’t pay for abortions for state workers and another providing better enforcement of parental consent on abortions.

Napolitano also vetoed a bill that would allow women to know that an unborn baby will feel intense pain during an abortion procedure. The veto came despite researching showing that unborn children have the capacity to feel pain at least after 20 weeks of pregnancy.

The governor vetoed a bill in 2004 that would have allowed women to receive information about abortion’s risks and alternatives that abortion businesses sometimes withhold from women considering abortions.

Napolitano also vetoed a measure that would have protected pro-life pharmacists from being forced to dispense drugs that could cause abortions.

It won't be easy to find a replacement with her level of paranoia.

Another Super-Rat abandons the ship of state, to add another layer to the insulation between her corruption and a subpoena to testify about the Executive Branch!

Disgusting!

Where’s Sheriff Joe when we need him????

Question for everyone? Did Harry Reid pass that rule that they no longer need a majority of 60 to okay Obama appointments.

I am thinking that this is directly linked to Napolitano resigning.

Don’t let the door hit you in the ass. You will fit right in with Angela Davis and all the other communist scum that populate the Calif university system.
And I’m sure you’ll find a new girlfriend real soon in the land of fruits and nuts.

That ain't going to happen now, not with a position so tied up with the IRS,FBI, and CIA.
