Are Conservatives and Veterans Terrorists?
In yet another goosestep toward its desired totalitarian control of America, Barack Obama's administration has issued a secret report (leaked to some in the media) that indicates that people who excercise their First Amendment rights might be considerted terrorists. The report comes from the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). FoxNews: The government considers you a terrorist threat if you oppose abortion, own a gun or are a returning war veteran. That's what House Judiciary Committee Ranking Member Lamar Smith, R-Texas, said Wednesday in response to a Department of Homeland Security report warning of the rise of right-wing extremist groups. Are there, in fact, right-wing extremist groups? Yes, of course there are. There are extremist left-wing groups, too, such as SDS, a group that many of Barack Obama's friends were or are members of. Have the right-wing extremist groups suddenly grown or begun to bomb buildings? No. Has there been a sudden resurgence of the KKK? No. Do left-wing extremist groups continue to torch housing developments to "save the planet?" Yes, and more. Under Democrat Bill Clinton, did the federal government engage in violent domestic terrorism? Yes, as in Waco, Texas (photo above). Smith, who said the report on "right-wing extremism" amounts to "political profiling," said that DHS is "using people's political views to assess an individual's susceptibility to terror recruitment." He joins a growing chorus of protest from irate conservative groups that are protesting the report's findings. Full Report at FoxNews... But what about the left-wing extremist groups? Yes, there is a report about that, too, but it's different. As Hot Air points out (emphasis added): ....the report on extremism of the Left is much different than the other DHS report, starting with specifics. While the DHS report focusing on the Right expansively and generally indicted groups opposing abortion, illegal immigration, and federalism, this report instead focuses on actual and specific extremist groups — groups who have a long history of domestic terrorism and violence....In other words, it does not treat all animal-rights criticisms as indications of terrorist thought. It fails to paint all opponents of free trade as potential national-security threats. Global warming activism does not get treated in this instance as federalism does in the execrable DHS report on conservatives and libertarians. In other words, in this report, the DHS actually focuses on threats, not becoming the Thought Police. Full Post at Hot Air... In other words, Big Brobama is on the loose. If Leftists, Liberals and Democrats were freaking out about the threats they perceived under the Bush Administration, wait to see how freaked out they get when they finally realize that life under a true totalitarian (Obama) is like. And by the way, are all those gun toting gangstaz on Chicago's south side right-wing terrorists, or are they left-wing terrorists?
