What is equally disturbing is the "lumping" that is taking place... in some cases it is subtle, but the overall intent is not without notice.
The report mentions the "Aztlan" situation - but calls it a conspiracy. Ask anyone vaguely familiar with La Raza (Like our new Justice Sotomayor), and you will surely gain full knowledge of the open plan to recolonize the American Southwest for future desires to break away from the US as Aztlan. Watch the following video... and ask yourself - is this a radical conspiracy made up by Right Wing Extremists or an actual movement?
It goes on to demonize those who dislike paying taxes, those who own or embrace the ownership of "assault rifles", and finally, compares the entire lot to Timothy McVeigh.
There are a few things happening here... It begins by attempting to make your opponent seem illogical - painting them as looney, irrational, and paranoid. Once this is accomplished, the propaganda corps (aka the Media) can use reports such as this to make reference to the paranoia that has been documented by such esteemed groups, such as the SPLC (Southern Poverty Law Center).
Let me be perfectly clear - there is a smear campaign in full swing. ANY AND ALL opposition to the liberal agenda (and that includes the agenda Bush was pushing too) is being openly condemned as Racist, Hateful, and Un-American. This swarm of attacks by the Government and their lapdog groups, such as the SPLC, is a pre-emptive strike against those who dare to stand up and question the legality, morality, or ideology of the Ruling Class. We are being targeted as radical, and the threat of the full force and might of the US Government is in tow - as was seen when the DHS released their report on "Extremist Groups" back in March/April, allowing "law enforcement" to treat protesters like terrorists.
I am reminded of a statement made by an old professor (not of mine, rather of the recent past):
"death of democracy is not likely to be an assassination from ambush. It will be a slow extinction from apathy, indifference, and undernourishment" - Robert Maynard HutchinsIt is the return to apathy and indifference that the mainstream figures, and the SPLC, are hoping for. They strive for an unmotivated mass of consumers with no anchor in core fundamental beliefs. They desire the neutering of an activist society, especially one whose idea of liberty differs so vastly from their own. Let there be no mistake - these are nothing more than politically motivated false reports with a clear agenda - an agenda of mass misinformation.
The truth behind the militia movement, the separatist movement, the anti-government movement, or any other "right wing extremist" thought pattern or ideology is simple.
"There was a dream that was [America]... It shall be realized.
Not to romanticise this in any way... but the idea is simple... the hero always fights against the oppressor. When the US government becomes oppressive to her people, trading liberty for security, it is then when a hero is needed. Reagan stated that the most dangerous armament is the will of free men... how prophetic those words!
Questioning our government is never extreme. Preparing for the unknown is never extreme. Dreaming of something more, something that can be... it is never extreme...
