Okay, is it just me or are things getting . . . scary? Remember that DHS memo from April 2009 that defines potential “domestic terrorists” and further describes:
“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. (source)
Yep, the new and improved definition of “domestic terrorists”:
“may include groups and individuals that are dedicated to a single-issue, such as opposition to abortion or immigration,” the warning says. (source, same as above)
Let’s review. If you believe in states’ rights (lots of us know this as the 10th Amendment to the United States Constitution) OR are pro-life OR oppose illegal immigration . . . you may be a terrorist in the eyes of the United States government. Oh, and let’s not forget veterans of our armed forces; they’re being tagged as potential “domestic terrorists,” too. Nice.
And remember the parade of BO nominees who variously stated that the biggest threat to America is from the right wing, those pesky white RAAAACISTS who are *gasp* pro-life? And remember when BO told that audience that conservatives are “enemies” who must be “punished”? And remember how Holder’s got that “my people” chip on his shoulder that is so large that there are reports that the DOJ has adopted a policy of ignoring crimes by black people against white people? Let’s not forget that a certain member of Congress thinks that the TEA Party and pro-life Americans who want Planned Parenthood defunded “do not deserve Constitutional rights.”
So now we have a brand-new “rule” (not a law, mind you) that literally destroys the rights of “domestic terrorists.” Is is just me or does all this fit together somehow?
Naw, can’t be.
Just ignore the weekend disaster exercise designed to train agents in combating “domestic terrorism” and featuring government officials taking down a group of “white supremacists” who oppose illegal immigration.
Nothing to see here.
