On the heels of the odious report by the State of Missouri, recently retracted, focusing on so-called “right-wing terrorism” and implying that every right of center group in American politics is an inch away from being terrorists, now we have a federal agency report doing the same thing.
The Department of Homeland Security has also created a secret report that wasn’t supposed to be made public but has leaked out nonetheless. In it we see the same outrageous conclusions that “right-wing terrorists” are a danger in this country. (Download PDF file)
And why are we supposed to be so fearful of these evil right-wingers? Because a black guy got elected president. That’s right, folks, apparently Barack Obama’s intelligence services are trying to convince the country’s policing agencies that everyone right of center is a psychotic racist ready to take up arms and kill every federal agent they see just because a black man became president.
In a world where Islamist terror is appearing in every corner of the earth, Obama and his policemen are trying to gin up fear about Ron Paul followers, conservatives, Republicans, constitutionalists, and Second Amendment supporters. Apparently to the lefties under Obama, other Americans are far more worrisome than Islamic terrorists.
And what is the worst part of this report? Catch the first paragraph of the key findings section of the report:
(U/LES) The DHS/Office of Intelligence and Analysis (I&A) has no specific information that domestic rightwing terrorists are currently planning acts of violence, but rightwing extremists may be gaining new recruits by playing on their fears about several emergent issues. The economic downturn and the election of the first African American president present unique drivers for rightwing radicalization and recruitment.
So, they have NO PROOF of any of their claims, yet wish to inflame these fears just the same. No proof. Nothing. Not a scintilla of evidence that it has or is happening. But, oh, it’s a worry, alright!
Why are we paying millions for our intelligence services to focus on patriotic Americans for holding average right of center ideas when we have Islamist terrorism all across the globe? Why is Obama, like Clinton, more interested in attacking his own political enemies than in attacking actual enemies to this country?
We should all remember that in the 90s, while bin Laden and his al Qaeda network was growing strong, Bill Clinton’s intelligence services were running around the country all worried over the “militia” movement and proclaiming how much of a threat it was to the nation. It turned out, of course, that this fear was largely fictitious.
And now, once again we see that the Democrats hate and fear other Americans more than they hate avowed, proven enemies to this country. People that have killed Americans by the handsfull and want to kill far, far more are not on Obama’s radar. Apparently, investigations of actual, avowed enemies to this country take a back seat to ferreting out Obama’s internal political enemies.
The fascist tendencies of the American left shines again.
Even if it is successfully proven that this DHS report is a fake (though it seems credible to me) we still have the Missouri report from earlier in the month put out by a Democrat controlled agency — the fact that it was a halfassed report with “research” done by using Wikipedia as a source, notwithstanding. One has to wonder how many agencies under Democratic Party control like this have reached conclusions that so-called “right-wing terrorists” threaten the nation? One also has to wonder why we are taking our eyes off the Islamist threat and turning instead to looking at Americans on the right side of the political spectrum? Is it just because we have Democrats again in power all over the country?
Another question comes to mind. Why did we never see these sorts of “reports” aimed at the left when Republicans held more power? Is it because the GOP doesn’t generally consider their fellow Americans to be enemies of the state the way Democrats feel Republicans might be?
