Does the Obama Administration Consider You a Terrorist Threat?

The current US administration has shown it’s hand and it’s not backing down. They are defining what it means to be a right-wing extremist and how you — and you might be surprised and just a little worried how many of you this includes – might be a terrorist threat. As reported in the Washington Times,

Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano said she was briefed before the release of a controversial intelligence assessment and that she stands by the report sent to law enforcement that lists veterans as a terrorist risk to the U.S. and defines “rightwing extremism” as including groups opposed to abortion and immigration.

The Washington Times has also published the actual government document, available as a pdf on their website. A right wing extremist terrorist threat is anyone who is antigovernment, and specifically singled out are those rejecting federal authority in favor of state or local authority. As far as the Obama administration is concerned, Congressman Ron Paul joins the ranks of Timothy McVeigh and Mohammed Atta. Thomas Jefferson was fortunately born two centuries too early or he’d be on the list as well.

Anyone opposed to the passage of “new restrictions on firearms” is suspect as well. Then report further says,

Weapons rights and gun-control legislation are likely to be hotly contested subjects of political debate in light of the 2008 Supreme Court’s decision in District of Columbia v. Heller in which the Court reaffirmed an individual’s right to keep and bear arms under the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, but left open to debate the
precise contours of that right. Because debates over constitutional rights are intense, and parties on all sides have deeply held, sincere, but vastly divergent beliefs, violent extremists may attempt to co-opt the debate and use the controversy as a radicalization tool.

So if you are a member of a pro-life group (and who knows what constitutes a group – perhaps you need to be careful which Facebook groups you join), support the Second Amendment, or have served in the Armed Forces, just know that in the Obamanation, you are a threat.

    Better get that Jesus sticker off my car window and the McCain/Palin sticker off my bumper too, I spose. Maybe I will just get a couple anti-abortion and NRA ones to add instead. There is revolution abroad in the land. See any tea party news on the 16th. There were thousands of people out but the left wing media didnt cover it. NY Times buried it on page 15 or so I hear tell.

    Were you to quote Janet Napolitano directly and in context- the fair thing to do, as opposed to summarizing her words for the purpose of spinning them to fit your agenda- her words would not support your contentions.

    The same criticism applies to your misleading those who will not take the time to read the entire pdf document which, again, puts matters in proper context.

    With regard to Janet Nepalitano’s words, I simply reported what was reported in the press.

    I disagree with you about the document, as does Judge Andrew Napolitano. Even the the DHS’s own Office of Civil Rights and Civil Liberties objected to the language that was used.

  4. Mary Says:

    Why do you suppose Ms Napolitano and Obama both saw fit to “apologize” if she had put out an acceptable document? Said document listed no author btw…vewy intewesting…

  5. Bart Poolitai Says:

    I agree with Stacy Harris as well.

  6. sol Says:

    Since Stacy hasn’t returned, perhaps you can explain why the Office of Civil Rights and Civil Liberties objected to the lanuage as I linked above, or as Mary pointed out, why Napolitano and Obama apologised.
