Patriots Targeted by Homeland Security: Patriots are Rightwing Extremists

The Washington Times revealed an unclassified report by Homeland Security and the FBI today, pegging certain Americans as "rightwing extremists."

The nine page report distributed to police (no indication of which police departments) says that even though "threats from white supremacist and violent antigovernment groups during 2009 have been largely rhetorical and have not indicated plans to carry out violent acts...nevertheless," economic and other anti-Obama mindsets, can spin these "rhetorical" threats into the real thing and...well, we best be prepared for it, I guess, since this was given to the police.

As you read the report, you realize that the "extremists" are patriots: those of us who do not want the Second Amendment breached, those who do not agree with the Obama administration's fix for the economy, those of us who want the rule-of-law followed to the letter to suppress and end illegal immigration, and those who are determined to see to it that this administration, or any other, never usurps a State's sovereignty.

Worse yet, is the accusation that our returning military combat vets might be seduced into joining our efforts to overthrow a government that we do not like, particularly because the head of that government is an African American man. Our "propaganda" will be used to "recruit" the combat veterans and their "skills" will "boost our violent capabilities."

Repeatedly, the report by Janet Napolitano and Homeland Security refers to the rightwing extremists as "domestic terrorists." She refuses to use that word in conjunction with those who attack the U.S., and those plotting to attack us, but she has no compunction about labeling patriots as domestic terrorists.

We are going to hear a lot more about this report, it's ramifications for peace-abiding, but serious Americans who care about our Constitution and plan to keep it the way it is. The pdf format report can be read at WorldlNetDaily. Click here and then again on the first line of their report.

Here are links around the web about the Homeland Security report and "rightwing extremists:" "Millions of Americans--not just "rightwing extremists"--are concerned about the administration's positions on immigration and many other issues."

Powerline Blog Janet Napolitano refuses to use the term “terrorism,” or “terrorist,” to label those who attacked America and continue to plan to attack America, “domestic rightwing terrorism” is used thoughout this report.

Right Pundits Just last month a Missouri State law enforcement report (“The Modern Militia”), with information partially gathered by federal law enforcement agencies, listed Christian conservatives and groups that oppose abortion and illegal immigration as domestic terrorists. Incredibly, the document completely omits domestic terror groups associated with fundamentalist Muslims or those connected to liberals such as extreme environmentalists.

Judicial Watch Needless to say, the American Legion is not, nor has it ever been, a terrorist organization. Until now and the Obama administration's insistence that all groups on the right of their ideology are terror groups.

Monkey in the Middle I spent the day chasing down DHS spokespeople, who have been tied up preparing for a very important homeland security event later today: The First Lady is coming to visit their Washington office. Priorities, you know. Well, the press office got back to me and verified that the document is indeed for real.

Michelle Malkin The Department of Homeland Security is worried about terrorists. No, no, not Islamic terrorists. Not them. No, DHS is worried about rightwing terrorists...

Time to Keep Score The document goes on to impugn veterans, especially those returning from war, as nutjobs teetering on the brink of becoming the next Tim McVeigh. But hey, the left loves the troops, right?

Crush Liberalism I wonder if the FBI is going to have enough agents to cover the tea parties scheduled for tomorrow?

Rightwing Nut House Friends, this IS an issue!
