Suspected Domestic Terrorists:
Heads up, bitter clingers: The Department of Homeland Security is keeping an eye on your anti-Obama activities
Suspected “man-made disasters”:
Whatever they did…I’m sure it was our fault.
A few weeks ago, the Obama administration was signaling that the War On Terror was over. We weren’t using those words anymore to describe our fight against Islamic terrorism. “Overseas contingency operations” has taken its place out of respect for the sensibilities of our sworn enemies.
But it turns out, the War On Terror isn’t over after all. It’s just shifted focus.
A new report has been issued from from the Dept. of Homeland Security to be passed out to Police and Sheriff’s offices all across America. According to Obama’s DHS, those of us who don’t appreciate abortion, or illegal immigration, or high taxes, or the the gross expansion of government, and believe in the bill of rights, are potential “right wing extremists”.
Michelle Malkin opines:
In Obama land, there are no coincidences. It is no coincidence that this report echoes Tea Party-bashing left-wing blogs (check this one out comparing the Tea Party movement to the Weather Underground!) and demonizes the very Americans who will be protesting in the thousands on Wednesday for the nationwide Tax Day Tea Party.
A PDF of the DHS report, here.
Ed Morrissey at Hot Air doesn’t mince words:
…I looked at the DHS report on “right-wing extremism” myself, and it’s every bit as bad as she says, and as Roger Hedgecock and the Liberty Papers first reported. The DHS fails to provide any specifics at all, preferring instead to smear half of the country or more as kooks for criticizing the government’s handling of the economy. As Eli Lake reports, the DHS has all but declared war on federalism, which used to be the founding concept of our republic…
The timing of this report is no doubt meant to depress turnout of the tea parties, but something tells me it will have the opposite effect.

This Ain’t Hell reports that the American Legion is not amused:
A friend of ours in the deep southland sends us the letter that the American Legion national commander, David K. Rehbein sent to Department of Homeland Security secretary Janet Napolitano in response to the report that TSO wrote about yesterday which expressed an unwarranted fear of us right-wing veterans.
Check it out.
And now Ace weighs in, too, over at AoSHQ:
Just Checking: Are the various black-masked anarchists who periodically shut down cities and throw heavy rocks at police “leftwing extremists”?
Funny how the inconvenient members of the left are never included in the ranks of the left. They’re just “nuts,” apparently, without any general political sympathies towards one more-respectable branch of political thinking.
Unlike skinheads and survival fantasists, who are definitely “rightwing.”
Oh no….here’s one of them extremists, right now!:
The Dept. of Homeland Security’s worst nightmare!
