Do you reject “federal authority in favor of state or local authority,” or “government authority entirely”? Are you “dedicated to a single issue, such as opposition to abortion or immigration”?
If so, you are a dangerous, rightwing extremist according to Obama’s Department of Homeland Security, which bans the use of the word “terrorist” unless it’s applied to us rightwing extremists who, for example, are so extreme as to view the grisly murder of the unborn in their mothers’ wombs as cold-blooded murder.
Are you a veteran returning from Iraq or Afghanistan after risking life and limb to protect your fellow Americans? If so, you are a ticking time bomb likely to the recruited by those dangerous rightwing extremists.
After all, the vaunted Extremism and Radicalization Branch of the Homeland Environment Threat Analysis Division, Department of Homeland Security, warns that you “possess combat skills and experience that are attractive to rightwing extremists,” and these Obama-ite loons are concerned that rightwing extremists “will attempt to recruit and radicalize returning veterans in order to boost their violent capabilities.”
Have we really come to this? Has Adolf Hitler’s propaganda chief Joseph Goebbels been reborn and recruited by the Obama administration to scare the heck out of the American people with absurdities such as this whacked-out document?
Obviously recognizing that public knowledge of the nonsense alleged in this document is very undesirable, the weirdoes who prepared it did not want you to see it.
They warn: “No portion of the LES information should be released to the media, the general public, or over non-secure Internet servers.”
Too bad. The Washington Times got their hands on a copy and revealed it to the entire world.
Once it became public and many Americans reacted in disbelief, the Obama White House disavowed it despite the fact that a document as explosive as this could never have been distributed without the president’s explicit approval in the first place.
The screed was prepared long before tens of thousands of outraged Americans banded together in today’s peaceful Tea Party demonstrations, which by their very nature gave the lie to the outrageous allegations contained in the document.
The demonstrations were conducted by people who believe strongly in the very issues cited by the administration as those that incite violence, yet who themselves abhor violence as a political tactic.
They’re getting ready to take names, so beware if you say anything negative about abortion or gay marriage or our out-of-control system of taxation.
Sounding like something out of a Gestapo directive, the document reveals that Homeland Security “will be working with its state and local partners over the next several months to ascertain with greater regional specificity the rise in rightwing extremist activity in the United States, with a particular emphasis on the political, economic, and social factors that drive rightwing extremist radicalization.”
Such as baby killing in abortion mills …
They want America’s law enforcement agencies “to report information concerning suspicious or criminal activity to DHS and the FBI.” So watch out if you attend an anti-abortion rally or a Tea Party. Big Brother will be watching.
They want your friendly neighborhood cop to send “comments or questions related to the content or dissemination of this document,” to the DHS/I&A Production Branch at IA.PM@hq.dhs.gov, IA.PM@dhs.sgov.gov, or IA.PM@dhs.ic.gov.
Why not join in on the fun and contact them at the above address and let them know what you’re thinking — in a nice, non-threatening way, of course. You wouldn’t want them to think you’re some kind of rightwing extremist. Would you?
