Homeland Security on Guard for ‘Right-Wing Extremists’

Emperor Obama and his Homeland Security chief would like you to believe that so-called “right-wing” conservatives are the new “terrorist” and must be watched closely for possible criminal activity.
His Most (un)Impressiveness, Emperor Obama I, won’t use the word “terrorist” to describe actual terrorist. He has renamed the “War on Terror” to the mundane and non-descriptive “Overseas Contingency Operation”, so why wouldn’t he hang the misnomer of “terrorist” on his conservative detractors in order to demonize them?
He was voted in on the promise of “change”. Now he hopes to “change” all of his detractors into criminals.

Jen Rast at the Scriptorium had this to say:

“Obama and Homeland Security are following the Marxist Handbook and busying themselves labeling us conservatives as right wing extremists, and even terrorists. In this report that was originally intended for office use only, but got leaked, DHS insults Veterans by warning that they may come home from war and use their skills for terrorist attacks at home. It also warns of the threat posed by Christians who believe in end-time prophecy. Clinton went after the Militias of the 90’s in a similar way, but he wasn’t this insulting, and he didn’t take it to this extreme. Below are a few choice paragraphs and quotes from the report, but you should read the whole article. This country is going to change drastically in the near future, I fear. And it’s not the kind of change the Left thought they would get (with the exception of the hard left, who’ve been calling us conservatives terrorists for years). We elected a Kenyan Muslim, and now Christians and Veterans are the new terrorists among us. Nice. I hope they don’t expect us to be intimidated by this report and go into hiding. The tax day Tea Parties should dispel any notion that we aren’t going to fight the communist takeover of our country by Obama and his tax evading thugs.”

“Yeah, us Christians have been blowing up buildings, planning attacks on military bases, and bombing peoples homes for years. Wait, no, that was Obama’s long time friend, the author of his memoirs, William Ayers of the Weather Underground. My mistake.”

“UPDATE: For anyone who doubted the authenticity of the DHS report above, Michelle Malkin is reporting that the hit job Obama did on conservatives through DHS is indeed an accurate report, and the Report is real.”

Here is a link to Michelle Malkin’s information.

WASHINGTON – A newly unclassified Department of Homeland Security report warns against the possibility of violence by unnamed “right-wing extremists” concerned about illegal immigration, increasing federal power, restrictions on firearms, abortion and the loss of U.S. sovereignty and singles out returning war veterans as particular threats.

The report, titled “Right-wing Extremism: Current Economic and Political Climate Fueling Resurgence in Radicalization and Recruitment,” dated April 7, states that “threats from white supremacist and violent anti-government groups during 2009 have been largely rhetorical and have not indicated plans to carry out violent acts.”

However, the document, first reported by talk-radio host and WND columnist Roger Hedgecock, goes on to suggest worsening economic woes, potential new legislative restrictions on firearms and “the return of military veterans facing significant challenges reintegrating into their communities could lead to the potential emergence of terrorist groups or lone wolf extremists capable of carrying out violent attacks.”

The report from DHS’ Office of Intelligence and Analysis defines right-wing extremism in the U.S. as “divided into those groups, movements and adherents that are primarily hate-oriented (based on hatred of particular religious, racial or ethnic groups) and those that are mainly anti-government, rejecting federal authority in favor of state or local authority, or rejecting government authority entirely. It may include groups and individuals that are dedicated to a single issue, such as opposition to abortion or immigration.”

“[T]he consequences of a prolonged economic downturn – including real estate foreclosures, unemployment and an inability to obtain credit – could create a fertile recruiting environment for right-wing extremists and even result in confrontations between such groups and government authorities similar to those in the past,” the report says.

It adds that “growth in these groups subsided in reaction to increased government scrutiny as a result of the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing and disrupted plots, improvements in the economy and the continued U.S. standing as the pre-eminent world power.”

“Proposed imposition of firearms restrictions and weapons bans likely would attract new members into the ranks of right-wing extremist groups as well as potentially spur some of them to begin planning and training for violence against the government,” the report continues. “The high volume of purchases and stockpiling of weapons and ammunition by right-wing extremists in anticipation of restrictions and bans in some parts of the country continue to be a primary concern to law enforcement.”

Most notable is the report’s focus on the impact of returning war veterans.

“Returning veterans possess combat skills and experience that are attractive to right-wing extremists,” it says. “DHS/I&A is concerned that right-wing extremists will attempt to recruit and radicalize veterans in order to boost their violent capacities.”

The report cites the April 4 shooting deaths of three police officers in Pittsburgh as an example of what may be coming, claiming the alleged gunman holds a racist ideology and believes in anti-government conspiracy theories about gun confiscations, citizen detention camps and “a Jewish-controlled ‘one-world government.'”

It also suggests the election of an African-American president and the prospect of his policy changes “are proving to be a driving force for right-wing extremist recruitment and radicalization.”

The report also mentions “‘end times’ prophecies could motivate extremist individuals and groups to stockpile food, ammunition and weapons. These teachings also have been linked with the radicalization of domestic extremist individuals and groups in the past, such as the violent Christian Identity organizations and extremist members of the militia movement.”

“DHS/I&A assesses that right-wing extremist groups’ frustration over a perceived lack of government action on illegal immigration has the potential to incite individuals or small groups toward violence,” the report continues.

The report states the DHS will be working with state and local partners over the next several months to determine the levels of right-wing extremist activity in the U.S.

Last month, the chief of the Missouri highway patrol blasted a report issued by the Missouri Information Analysis Center that linked conservative groups to domestic terrorism, assuring that such reports no longer will be issued. The report had been compiled with the assistance of DHS.

The report warned law enforcement agencies to watch for suspicious individuals who may have bumper stickers for third-party political candidates such as Ron Paul, Bob Barr and Chuck Baldwin.

It further warned law enforcement to watch out for individuals with “radical” ideologies based on Christian views, such as opposing illegal immigration, abortion and federal taxes.

Chief James Keathley of the Missouri State Patrol issued a statement that the release of the report, which outraged conservatives nationwide, prompted him to “take a hard look” at the procedures through which the report was released by the MIAC.

“My review of the procedures used by the MIAC in the three years since its inception indicates that the mechanism in place for oversight of reports needs improvement,” he wrote. “Until two weeks ago, the process for release of reports from the MIAC to law enforcement officers around the state required no review by leaders of the Missouri State Highway Patrol or the Department of Public Safety.”

“For that reason, I have ordered the MIAC to permanently cease distribution of the militia report,” he said. “Further, I am creating a new process for oversight of reports drafted by the MIAC that will require leaders of the Missouri State Highway Patrol and the Department of Public Safety to review the content of these reports before they are shared with law enforcement. My office will also undertake a review of the origin of the report by MIAC.”

    Thanks for the link. I appreciate the thoughtful commentary, too. I’ve been reading a lot of blog posts and cursing a lot of comments.

    Anyway here’s as clean as I can put it: Yes it’s that bad. This liberal suspicion of the rest of us is bad. Homeland Security is suspicious of returning American veterans because they might be turned into domestic terrorists. Just like those jihadists who survived the Russia-Afghanistan conflict and returned home to their countries.

    DHS comments are insulting at the least. The great, great majority of American servicemembers are extremely patriotic. They won’t have anything to do with anti-government acts. Most American right-wingers are also extremely patriotic and won’t have anything to do with whatever the DHS is afraid of.

    Homeland Security needs to concentrate on African and Arab terrorists. If they solve that threat then they need to concenterate on the US-Mexico border. Leave the rest of us discontents alone. We’re US citizens with rights and this is our country too [edited].

    Well, during the Bush era and the warrantless wiretapping and violations of Constitutional protection against warrantless searches, the neo-coonservatives were fond of proclaiming “if you’ve done nothing wrong, then you’ve nothing to worry about”.

    Shouldn’t that same mindset hold true today? Or has the morbidity of hypocrisy come home to the practitioners of that black craft?

    So, what’s the problem?

    Lyn,
    Thanks for the comments. Please keep them clean. Still don’t like your racist website. Wish you’d reconsider your views in that regard. We are all equal in God’s eyes.
    Praying for you.

    Billy Joe,
    I didn’t like giving up my freedoms under Bush any better than I like it under Obama.

    This comment is just for Lyn. I myself am almost entirely white, with the exception of some Polynesian heritage. However, the concept of racism is to me one of the most disgusting things I can conceive. Just because you are racist should I hate all white people? No. I am really hoping that you open yourself to what Steve is saying. Not for a religion, but for your fellow man. Thanks, Patrick.

    John F. Kennedy, a former president, was once quoted stating his definition of happiness. He said, “Happiness is the full use of your powers along the lines of excellence.” If that is happiness then why would someone obey a double faced government? Unless they were trained to think that bowing down to a seemingly absolute power was fulfilling.
    To obey is to surrender yourself before your superior. Today’s government demands that men that once stood tall with their faith in Jesus, now kneel down with fear of prosecution. Many are victims of the immigrated religions and ideals. The main religion prosecuting Christianity is Islam.
