Remember the "Rightwing Extremism" nonsense frm DHS?

It's been exposed as just another outrageous example of Thug Politics by the Obamanation to suppress dissent, in the same manner of the campaign to de-legitimize the widespread objections to Obamacare.


"In defining 'rightwing extremism,' the Department of Homeland Security memo targeted 'groups, movements, and adherents… that are mainly antigovernment, rejecting federal authority in favor of state or local authority' and 'groups and individuals that are dedicated to a single issue, such as opposition to abortion or immigration,' beliefs that represent tens of millions of Americans who are neither extremists nor terrorists.

In its assessment, DHS reported that returning veterans would be recruited by terrorist groups, that gun control legislation and the election of Barack Obama would attract new members to 'rightwing extremist' groups, and that the economic downturn too was ripening “extremist” sentiments. It stated that 'lone wolves and small terrorist cells embracing violent rightwing extremist ideology are the most dangerous domestic terrorism threat in the United States.' It said this threat was 'because of their low profile and autonomy—separate from any formalized group—which hampers warning efforts.'

As a result, what DHS claimed to be looking for was less than a needle in a haystack, making law enforcement efforts to develop a profile of potential suspects futile. And since the report was not based on actual intelligence gathered by DHS or another agency by individuals who had penetrated actual terrorist cells, and rather were based upon the ravings of the hard left and conspiracists, its conclusions were and are highly dubious. Instead they would have led to the monitoring of potentially millions of law-abiding Americans."
Of course, according to our Useful Idiot/"Regressive", element, it's all just so much blowback to the dopey, hopey, 'n changey party they're enjoying, not genuine worry from people who are concerned about the real dangers that this renegade administration represents.

  1. But those who support single issues like govt takeover of healthcare, killing unborn children, legalizing drugs are welcomed.

    Since when has support for strong state government equalled anti-govt? Do these people even know what makes America unique compared to every other country?

    Since when does aligning yourself with likeminded folks mean you are dangerous?

    Look bubba, you know I voted for many dems in nov. but when they are bashing and criminalizing people who hold values that make America unique, and those who signed their lives over to protect those values, we have a problem
