Posted on 04/21/2009 12:24:45 PM PDT by AJKauf
After eight years of the paranoid opposition biting at the heels of President Bush, rejoicing at any possibility of evildoing in an attempt to vindicate their bitterness, it is now President Obamas turn to feel the hyper-partisan heat. Michael Savage and the Thomas More Law Center are suing Secretary of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano after her department issued a memo warning of right-wing extremists. Parroting the claims of those who say the use of the term radical Muslims is bigoted, will lead to civil rights infringements, and is part of a political-religious crusade, we now hear that the term right-wing extremists is part of a political offensive aimed at destroying free speech.
The Drudge siren blared when the Washington Times report was published and within hours there was a mad dash by TV and radio hosts, blogs, and commentators to use the report to take aim at the Obama administration. They sunk their teeth into the portion of the memo warning that right-wing extremists could be motivated by issues like illegal immigration, gun control, abortion, or loss of U.S. sovereignty; they claimed that the Obama administration was viewing conservatives as dangerous radicals. Their quick and efficient drawing of arms, though, did not follow a quick and efficient reading past the first page of the three-page article....

Uh...the DHS and the Obama Adminstration refuse to refer to al-Qaeda as “terrorists” but have no such compunction doing so with American citizens. I don’t think “chilling out” is the proper reaction.
Not just no, but HELL NO !!
FBI spied on TEA Party Americans
I say the use! Enemies lists, FBI spying on conservitive protesters, and HLS use that memo to get local law enforcement to also spy??? The Presidency is paranoid!
I will “chill out” when my ashes are scattered to the sea, and not one fricken second sooner.
The neo-cons don’t want you to question the massive internal security they have erected.
Who the hell is this Ryan twit to tell me to chill out?
What is this guy doing on pajamas media?
Who is this AH!
I'm not chilling out over this one,.
What I want is that slack jawed idiot fat ass Napolitano given the boot back to Arizona.
Judging from the responses on the website, apparently just about everyone would like this nimrod to take a hike.
I got your chill right here Ryan...
This guy is exactly wrong. The best way to prevent such fascist directives from being fully implemented is fast, vigorous, widespread public outrage.
A good sign.
Hell no ... I won't go so far as to say lock and load, but d*mnit, they are pushing for a civil war.
I doubt that this was 100% Janet’s idea.
No argument there. BUT!!
1. She could have put her hoof on it and stopped it.
2.She could have had it rewritten in a better form.
3.(and this is the worst) She could have avoided trying to support the thing while sounding like a cow locked outside its barn. How in hell did she ever get elected governor anyway?
Oh, I’m sure she agreed with it,
but you know that 0bama also
put his imprimatur on it as well.
No question in my mind what so ever as to that.
Uh, how about NO.
Does "NO" work for you?
