Skip to comments.DEMS CALL POLITICAL OPPONENTS THREAT TO SECURITY
Posted on 04/15/2009 5:53:25 AM PDT by shortstop
I am a rightwing extremist.
At least thats what the new administration would call me.
In a sweeping nine-page document sent to state and local law-enforcement agencies last week, the federal government sounded the alarm against rightwing extremists, and called on law enforcement to join it in identifying and investigating people who fit a certain profile.
And gun owners.
And people who believe in the Tenth Amendment.
In something from the Stalin side of Orwell, the new Democrat regime in Washington has identified those who disagree with it as potential threats to the state.
Put another way: The purge has begun.
Here are the specifics. On April 7, the Department of Homeland Security Office of Intelligence and Analysis sent out an alert to American law enforcement. It identified rightwing extremists as a danger.
It then defined rightwing extremists.
They were people for whom one issue was very important like opposing abortion, or opposing illegal immigration. It was also people who felt that the federal government was too powerful and that states rights should be respected.
Gun owners also came under fire.
A correlation may exist between the potential passage of gun control legislation, Homeland Security warned, and increased hoarding of ammunition, weapons stockpiling, and paramilitary training activities among rightwing extremists.
So, if you believe that the Democrats in Washington may pass laws limiting the availability of guns or ammunition, and you consequently buy guns or ammunition before they make it illegal to do so, you are a rightwing extremist.
Or my neighbor.
Because I find that the Democrats profile of a potential threat to national security sounds amazingly like a Republican. And this bulletin sounds amazingly like the Democrats using the power of law enforcement to attack and suppress their political opponents.
The same party that complained when Homeland Security tapped the phone calls of foreign Muslim terrorists is now using Homeland Security to defame and investigate conservative American Republicans.
I cant decide if that is more reminsicent of the Gestapo or the KGB. All I know is that it isnt American.
Especially since it targets veterans.
Another personality type the brown shirts see as potential rightwing extremists combat veterans of Iraq and Afghanistan.
Thats right. The men and women who volunteered to defend our country in a time of war, the ones who you and I welcome with open arms and parades, the thought police are suspicious of them.
Im not sure what prejudice of the liberal mind it is that makes Democrats mistrust veterans, but its about to elevate the best among us to the watch list.
So Im coming clean.
I want to save the Democrats the trouble of tapping my phone.
I am a veteran who is opposed to abortion and illegal immigration. I drive a four-wheel-drive American-made pick-up truck and it has an NRA sticker in the window. Theres also an American flag and a magnetic Army ribbon and a sticker from a private Christian college.
Im as rightwing extremist as it gets.
And so are most of the people I know.
And its too bad the government has decided that were the enemy. Its too bad the new president and his comrades in the Congress are trying to use the police as their political enforcers.
Speaking of the police, Im surprised they werent included in the profile.
Stay calm, stay alert and don’t be goaded by these socialists into doing anything.
However, be alert for agent provocateurs amongst us.
WHO IS A THREAT? PEOPLE WAKE UP AND HOLD YOUR MONEY FROM THESE RADICAL UNIVERSITIES WHO ARE INDOCTRINATING YOU CHILDREN!!!! YOU MUST DEMAND AN ANSWER FOR THIS DISPLAY OF ANTI AMERICAN ANTI DEMOCRACY LUNACY AT UNC!!!!
Uh, I would beg to differ.
Krystalnacht and Reichstag await.
Boy, am I in trouble.
My sign at the Tea Party today reads:
DISSENT IS PATRIOTIC, RIGHT?
Don’t forget Global Warming deniers. Or, the crime of crimes: not being tolerant of Gays.
Yes! Just sit around with your thumb up your butt. Everything is going to be fine.
All Americans are equal, but some Americans are more equal than others.
“They were people for whom one issue was very important like opposing abortion, or opposing illegal immigration.”
...opposing ILLEGAL immigration... Ohmygosh! Who ARE these EEEEVIL people who oppose ILLEGAL activity in this country?!?!
They MUST be stopped! -1.Identified, 2.investigated, 3.harassed, 4.rounded up and 5.disposed of...
THEN, we will have our United States of Utopia!
We are all in trouble and I guess we are all rightwing extremists I guess. Whateva.
Be Bold ... Be Alert ... BE THERE!
Some types of dissent are more equal than others. Right wing dissent = HATE, don’ya know?
The homos will be used as the point of the spear to attack Christians - they already are.
From my previous post:
This report paints EVERY ASPECT OF CONSERVATISM as suspect!
Specifically mentioned in the Report:
Gee, did they miss anything? Also directly or implied labels:
The information is provided to federal, state, local, and tribal counterterrorism and law enforcement officials so they may effectively deter, prevent, preempt, or respond to terrorist attacks against the United States.
The economic downturn and the election of the first
African American president present unique drivers for rightwing radicalization and recruitment.
Rightwing extremists have capitalized on the election of the first African American president...
Most statements by rightwing extremists have been rhetorical, expressing concerns about the election of the first African American president, but stopping short of calls for violent action....
Make no mistake...the government is NOT on our side and even the least active us may be seen/treated as the enemy.
I think we Christians, military vets, federalists, pro 2d amendment, pro lifers .... and others now apparently profiled by Dept of Homie Security
need 60 million bumper stickers identifying us as right wing extremists
just so law enforecment can keep an eye on us
My government fears me.
That means the Majority Of The American People(c) fear me, too.
I now realize what my older Vietnam War brothers already knew: our country hates its soldiers.
