That’s right the same DHS that has banned the use of the word “terrorist” and the phrase “war on terror” has now found someone to target. Right leaning voters are apparently the country’s greatest threat:
A footnote attached to the report by the Homeland Security Office of Intelligence and Analysis defines “rightwing extremism in the United States” as including not just racist or hate groups, but also groups that reject federal authority in favor of state or local authority.
“It may include groups and individuals that are dedicated to a single-issue, such as opposition to abortion or immigration,” the warning says.
So if you believe in the concept of Federalism (States rights are more important than the Fed) or if you are pro-life or against Amnesty for illegal immigrants… you are an extremist. Also the White House press secretary is apparently OK with using the T-word with regard with regard to right wing “radicals” if not Islamic radicals. So I am a triple terrorist threat! Strange how far the view has shifted on those that still hold to the original intent of the founding fathers on the country and the constitution.
The nine-page document was sent to police and sheriff’s departments across the United States on April 7 under the headline, “Rightwing Extremism: Current Economic and Political Climate Fueling Resurgence in Radicalization and Recruitment.”
It says the federal government “will be working with its state and local partners over the next several months” to gather information on “rightwing extremist activity in the United States.”
The joint federal-state activities will have “a particular emphasis” on the causes of “rightwing extremist radicalization.”
