Homeland Security Lexicon: You’re All ‘Militia Extremists’ Now
PJmedia ^ | 2-5-12 | Patrick Poole

Posted on 02/06/2012 8:42:50 AM PST by radioone

A recently published “lexicon” distributed to thousands of federal, state, and local law enforcement agencies by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) targets citizens concerned about their Second Amendment rights and the steady encroachment of the federal government, categorizing such as “militia extremists.”

The “lexicon,” marked Unclassified/For Official Use Only (FOUO), is dated November 10, 2011, and was sent out by email to law enforcement and homeland security agencies on November 14 by LaJuan E. Washington of the DHS Office of Intelligence and Analysis.

Too bad the only word that fits them is "fascists."

I am sure people who use that word to describe them are in their lexicon too.

We are required to log in (in pencil) to the local State DNR run gun range. I usually sign in using the name of prominent Zer0 appointees, just in case.

Must suck to be LaJuan, so many subversive Americans on the streets and playgrounds, so little time to fundamentally change America

it also sucks to be any law enforcement official who has to take guidance from a govt bureaucrat named LaJuan

You just gotta wonder about this guy being hired because he is a crack intelligence analyst

When government watchdogs submitted FOIAs for the sources used in preparing the report, they found that conspiracy websites and far-left outfits had been used, including the Southern Poverty Law Center, which branded the American Legion veterans organization as a “hate group.”

Proud member of a hate group since 1992!

About ten years ago I saw this coming and told myself that this would never happen here. That Americans would never let this happen. Was I ever wrong; it is happening right under our noses and few even recognize the train call communism chugging down the tracks right at them. The Kremlin told us to our face that they would bury us. And we are supplying the zip ties, the picks and shovels and digging the hole for them!

Well, folks, I won't be making any more TCM Shoots for a while. I can't afford to get arrested as a "militia extremist" and locked away forever with my Mom being so ill.
So ya'll have fun without me. After Mom passes, and if ya'll are still having the shoots, I'll be there. My kids are grown and can take care of themselves.

Pass my apologies on to the others I've missed in my ping.

Stay Safe!

Is this not an open declaration of war on those of us who still after years of public schools and media distortions believe in the Original Intent of the US Constitution?

I know for a fact, I no longer have 4th Amendment protection if I am at an airport, train station, bus terminal, sporting event, government office building and this statement from the KGB errr excuse me DHS would seem to indicate my first Amendment rights of expressing my belief in my 2nd Amendment rights renders me a terrorist in the eyes of this government.

Yup, seems like a declaration of war to me.

The article provides important hot links and many interesting reader comments, including additional comment from Patrick Poole.

Note that the DHS Lexicon also provides definitions for the following:

(U) Anarchist Extremists (U//FOUO)
(U) Animal Rights Extremists
(U) Anti-Abortion Extremists
(U) Black Supremacist Extremists
(U) Domestic Terrorism
(U) Environmental Rights Extremists
(U) Facilitators (U//FOUO) Groups or individuals who knowingly provide one or more of a wide array of services to other operatives that enable the execution of terrorist plots, training, travel, or financing. Such activity might include setting up bank accounts, acquiring or producing false identification or travel documentation, aiding travel, disbursing funds, procuring materials, or enabling communications via electronic means or couriers. A facilitator who participates in a conspiracy without knowing the final object of the conspiracy, or even knowing that a conspiracy exists, should be referred to as an unwitting co-optee.*
(U) Homegrown Violent Extremist (HVE)
(U) Lone Offender (
(U) Militia Extremists
(U) Racist Skinhead Extremists
(U) Radicalization
(U) Sovereign Citizen Extremists
(U) Terrorism
(U) Unwitting Co-optees (U//FOUO) Groups or individuals who provide support to terrorism without knowing that their actions are contributing to terrorism. Such individuals may suspect that they are being used. Not all unwitting co-optees are engaging in criminal behavior.‡
(U) White Supremacist Extremists

* (U//FOUO) FBI “Counterterrorism Analytical Lexicon.”
* (U) Homeland Security Act of 2002, Sec.2(16), 6 USC Sec 101.
† (U) There is no one definition of terrorism accepted by the federal government, the definition may vary even within the USIC.
‡ (U//FOUO) FBI “Counterterrorism Analytical Lexicon.” ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

From the article:

We have exclusively posted the DHS “lexicon” here.

Its definition of “militia extremists” states:

(U//FOUO) Groups or individuals who facilitate or engage in acts of violence directed at federal, state, or local government officials or infrastructure in response to their belief that the government deliberately is stripping Americans of their freedoms and is attempting to establish a totalitarian regime. These individuals consequently oppose many federal and state authorities’ laws and regulations, (particularly those related to firearms ownership), and often belong to armed paramilitary groups. They often conduct paramilitary training designed to violently resist perceived government oppression or to violently overthrow the US Government. (Page 2 of 3, emphasis added)

So what drives militia extremism according to DHS now is “belief that the government deliberately is stripping Americans of their freedoms.” It is demonstrated by opposing “many federal and state authorities’ laws and regulations, (particularly those related to firearms ownership).” Would writing about those topics (as I am now) fall under “facilitation”? On its face, it’s hard to see how it could be excluded under DHS’s broad definition.

Another indicator, according to DHS, is that militia extremists “often belong to paramilitary groups,” which would mean that there are “militia extremists” who aren’t part of a militia. So if you oppose federal regulations and support the Second Amendment to the Constitution, and though you don’t actually belong to a militia, you can still be branded a “militia extremist” by your own government, and presumably be targeted by law enforcement agencies. The “Reporting Notice” found on Page 3 of 3 of the “lexicon” encourages recipients to do exactly that:

DHS and FBI encourage recipients of this document to report information concerning suspicious or criminal activity to the nearest State and Major Urban Area Fusion Center and to the local FBI Joint Terrorism Task Force.

And for those who would scoff that my reading is over the top and claim that DHS would never target anyone who wasn’t knowingly and willingly involved in “facilitating and engaging in acts of violence,” the DHS lexicon adds another category, “unwitting co-optees”:

(U//FOUO) Groups or individuals who provide support to terrorism without knowing that their actions are contributing to terrorism. Such individuals may suspect that they are being used. Not all unwitting co-optees are engaging in criminal behavior.

Amazingly, the “lexicon” appears to directly violate standards published by DHS just weeks before the document was sent out.

In October 2011, DHS published its “Countering Violent Extremism (CVE) Training Guidance and Best Practices,” which was produced by the DHS Office for Civil Rights and Civil Liberties and posted on the agency’s website.

Section 2 of that document, titled “Training should be sensitive to constitutional values,” directs:

a) Review the training program to ensure that it uses examples to demonstrate that terrorists and violent extremists vary in ethnicity, race, gender, and religion.
b) Training should focus on behavior, not appearance or membership in particular ethnic or religious communities.
c) Training should support the protection of civil rights and civil liberties as part of national security. Don’t use training that equates religious expression, protests, or other constitutionally protected activity with criminal activity. (emphasis added)

But not only does the “lexicon” target constitutionally protected activity, it specifically targets groups based on race, namely “black supremacist extremists” and “white supremacist extremists.” I have absolutely no problem targeting groups promoting violence based on racial supremacist ideology, but if DHS is going to proscribe the use of such terms and promptly turn around and use such — while in the same breath targeting private citizens for exercising their constitutional rights and freedom of speech in violation of DHS’s own standards — needless to say, that’s a serious problem.

It bears mentioning that an earlier incarnation of the DHS lexicon was the subject of criticism from both Democrats and Republicans in Congress for its targeting of “alternative media” and its shockingly broad definition of the “patriot movement.” A DHS spokesman later claimed that the “lexicon” was sent out prematurely.

Which raises the question of why these various “lexicons” published by the federal government exist in the first place.

Going back to the Bush administration, these “lexicons” have seemingly had a singular purpose: purging the use of “Islam,” “jihad,” and “Muslim” from any official discussion of terrorism. No one should be surprised that none of those terms can be found in the current DHS “lexicon,” despite the fact that even by the most generous estimates, more than 40 percent of domestic terrorism has come from within the Muslim community, which accounts for less than one percent of the population. In its place, federal bureaucrats have invented and promoted a patently meaningless and undefinable category, “violent extremism.”

The roots of this go back to the end of the Bush administration and a March 2008 “lexicon” published by the National Counterterrorism Center. Titled “Words that Work and Words that Don’t: A Guide for Counterterrorism Communication,” it began the effort to purge the usage of the terms “Islam,” “Muslim,” and “jihad” from the vocabulary of government officials.

The Obama administration has taken those efforts even further, removing those terms from the 2009 National Intelligence Strategy, the Quadrennial Homeland Security Review, the Quadrennial Defense Review, the FBI Counterterrorism Analytical Lexicon, and the DOD Fort Hood report.

And as seen with the criticism of the previous version of the “lexicon,” this is hardly the first time that the DHS Office for Intelligence and Analysis has come under fire for targeting citizens with no connection whatsoever to terrorism.

In 2009, DHS came under fire for a 10-page report, “Right-wing Extremism: Current Economic and Political Climate Fueling Resurgence in Radicalization and Recruitment,” which classified returning war veterans as potential threats. When government watchdogs submitted FOIAs for the sources used in preparing the report, they found that conspiracy websites and far-left outfits had been used, including the Southern Poverty Law Center, which branded the American Legion veterans organization as a “hate group.” Information also surfaced that the report had been rushed out over the objections of civil liberties officials. DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano was forced to apologize to veterans groups and withdraw the report.

Nor is this the first time that homeland security agencies have pushed the boundaries on defining “militia extremists.”

Just a few weeks prior to DHS coming under fire for that “right-wing” report, the Missouri Information Analysis Center, funded by DHS grants, issued a report titled “The Modern Militia Movement,” which branded pro-life groups and those opposed to illegal immigration as potential domestic terrorists. Indicators identified in the report included support for third-party candidates. Political signs and bumper stickers were also suspect, with the Revolutionary War-era “Gadsden flag” specifically called out as a “militia symbol.” The Missouri fusion center later announced it would stop publishing reports altogether.

In light of the recent publication of the DHS “lexicon” that violates their own guidelines, it seems clear that under Secretary Napolitano, DHS officials are intent on continuing to target innocent citizens merely exercising their constitutional rights.

Meanwhile, groups and individuals that federal prosecutors and even federal judges have identified as supporting foreign terrorist groups are actively courted and legitimized by the Obama administration. Leaders from these terror-tied organizations are even being used to help write the DHS department guidelines on “countering violent extremism.”

Is it any wonder then that just last week it was revealed that a DHS-funded study likened terrorism to “ordinary crime” while omitting any reference to the radicalizing effects of Islamic extremist ideology?

Until Congress pushes back on this malfeasance by DHS and holds Secretary Napolitano accountable, it is likely to continue.

Targets citizens concerned about their Second Amendment rights

Wow, they’re really making it more and more obvious now.

Couple this with those “Terror watchlist” exclusions and you have a fool proof way of prohibiting anyone from buying a gun.

Let’s review:

Despite a record number of guns being purchased, crime has gone down [Yes, I can see the obvious connection – strangely, the socialists on the national left cannot]

And yet the left is pushing for more civilian disarmament – Registration and controlling private sales of guns.

And now they want a ‘trump card’ in denying your self-defense rights.

As I said, can they make it any more obvious?

I’m driving a big, black Buick with a Greek lambda letter sticker in the rear window.

Lambda was used as a shield pattern by the Spartan Army. This stood for Lakedaimon, the name of the region of Sparta.

The homos have also tried to use it too, so I figure it will confuse the lefties and hopefully assure fellow citizens that we’re not alone.

The parts that seem pertinent to me:

“...who facilitate or engage in acts of violence directed at federal, state, or local government officials or infrastructure...” AND “...training designed ... to violently overthrow the US Government...”

Those parts seem quite treasonous to me. Where I disagree with it is that any number of groups and ideologies would fit in between those parts — from far right to far left on the political spectrum.

Proud member of a hate group since 1992!

Me too, same one. I don't remember when i first joined, but I let it lapse and then the last 5-6 years, joined again and have maintained. Never been to a Legion hall on my own hook though. Did go with my father in law, who was also a member of that other extremist group too, the one whose initials are VFW. In fact his burial flag is in their hall, along with a whole bunch of others in nice flag display boxes, with the 3 cartridges. (Strictly symbolic in his case, he was cremated and hasn't been buried yet). My father belonged to both too.. I have his flag.

SOB's are going pay, big time, if they do anything other than put that in a book somewhere. Can you imagine the repercussions if they raid a Legion hall? Or even worse a VFW? (I'm only eligible for the Legion, else I'd be a VFW member too)

But they are probably afraid to raid your compound, for fear you'd blow 'em all to El Casa del Diablo. They've heard all those explosion at your compound. If they come, they'll call in an airstrike first.

So Nidal Hassan is thus not a terrorist, while I am. Neither is the other jihadie, this one a deserter, who was going to blow up one or more restaurants near Ft. Hood. Restaurants were soldiers frequently dine, and so do I. So he was plotting to try to blow me up, but I'm the terrorist.

LaJaun, you should never have followed that white rabbit down that hole.
