Dept. of Homeland Security Labelling Conservatives as Terrorists, joins Missouri and Other State Intel Organizations

Just last week I reported that the Democratic Government of the state of Missouri released an intelligence briefing warning that those bearing conservative bumper stickers, clothing, etc should be considered potential right-wing extremists and terrorists. Now Obama's Department of Homeland Security is joining the chorus...

The DHS released an intelligence briefing warning that conservatives - that is, those opposing Obama's ultra-Liberal agenda - should be considered potential terrorists. This on the eve of the Tea Party Protests, clearly meant as a show of force by the Obama administration to Conservatives that noncompliance will not be tolerated - the first step toward totalitarianism...

The briefing can be read here

Specific areas I would like to highlight -

1. Regarding Lone Wolfs, as reported on Monday in my question into the Fiber Optics cut -
"The possible passage of new 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."

2. Those who have legally purchased weapons in the wake of the election have now been targeted as right wing extremists -
"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 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

3. Special warnings have been set for "Disgruntled Military Veterans" of the Iraq and Afghanistan wars -
"DHS/I&A assesses that right wing extremists will attempt to recruit and radicalize returning veterans in order to exploit their skills and knowledge derived from military training and combat. These skills and knowledge have the potential to boost the capabilities of extremists—including lone wolves or small terrorist cells—to carry out violence. The willingness of a small percentage of military personnel to join extremist groups during the 1990s because they were disgruntled, disillusioned, or suffering from the psychological effects of war is being replicated today."

The report summarizes that those concerned with the following are potential terrorists:
1. concern over planned bans on guns, forced gun registration, and shortage of ammunition
2. concern over loss of US manufacturing ability to foreign countries
3. concern over UN involvement in US affairs, such as the new "Child Care" world treaty that Obama is signing the US into, and a broad move toward a One World Government
4. concern over lack of government action regarding illegal immigration
5. concern over economic downturn related to civil unrest and protests against the govt (Tea parties)
6. Christians who believe in "end times" prophecies
7. concern over same-sex marriage, abortion, and other leftist social agenda items

In short, just as the MIAC reported that conservative values were being deemed potential terrorist ideology, now so is the Department of Homeland Security echoing that call.

There is further discussion that Conservative Talk Radio is acting as the mouthpiece against the government, and is merely fanning the flames of dissent, leading to radical extremism - also known as conservatism...

Folks - the ideals of the Republican Platform, the basis for conservatism, and the fundamentals of libertarian free markets have officially been identified by the Obama Administration as threats to his new government - his new country.

I never would have thought that in America one who truly believes and defends the ideals on which this country were founded would be labelled as extreme.

So there you have it. As you join the tea parties today, know that the government is watching you - labelling you as a threat to American Security - and will treat you like the extremist terrorist that you are.

Give 'em hell, then, I suppose!

    There's an unconfirmed story out there that the author of the DHS report is one Brian Marcus, who either was or still is with the Anti-Defamation League (ADL). Anyone who is familiar with the ADL knows of its penchant to find anti-semitism hither and yon, whether it truly exists there or not. The ADL has historically been very paranoid about anything that is both Gentile and even remotely right-wing. Seems like to the ADL these goyim gun nuts are all potential Hitlers.

    Well, if Marcus actually is the author, it all fits. The same sort of "analysis" runs through the DHS report.

    Marcus has an old ADL colleague named Brian Levin, whom Hugh Hewitt interviewed yesterday (4/14). Here is a link to the podcast:

    Note how Levin hems and haws in response to Hugh's question re: whether or not Marcus wrote the report. It's clear Levin was trying to cover up for Marcus, thus appearing to confirm that Marcus actually is the author of the report.

    Hewitt opined that Marcus ought to be fired if indeed he's the author, and I contacted DHS last night and urged them to fire everyone involved with its creation. I urge everyone who reads this to do the same.

    Then I would urge everyone to contact their local law enforcement officials, and try to find out if they received the DHS report. If they answer that they did receive it, ask them about their position on its controversial aspects, which Steve itemizes above. Try to get them to go on record. Note if they are non-responsive to the request or if they refuse to answer your questions about the report's controversial points. If law enforcement is relying on this report, they need to be held accountable.

  2. If we are already considered criminal because of what we believe, then it's a short step to persecution because of those beliefs.

    I suspect the biggest radicalization (is that a word?) of the right will be because of the DHS report. There will always be someone who's willing to make such a report become a self-fulfilling prophecy.

    I STRONGLY suspect that the faceless bureaucrats behind this document have NO IDEA what they have just started. I pray that no one is spurred to action on this account, but I wouldn't place any bets against it.

  3. Brazen, shocking, unprecedented even under Bill Clinton. I agree with Rev Paul above in that they have truly opened a can of worms with this. I have never been more pissed in my whole life!
