I must be one of the extremists in the report. I plan on attending a tax day tea party. I own several guns. I buy ammo at all opportunities. I hate illegal immigration. I think abortion is murder. I voted for Prop 8. I am right wing.
I personally don’t give a shit that America elected its first HALF black president. In fact, I think that the majority of the idiots that voted for this socialist douche bag are racists, and are absolutely clueless as to the policies that this shit bag wants enacted. That’s just my opinion.
I’m extremist alright. Come get me bitches. I’ll stack you fuckers like cord wood.
I believe in individual freedom. I can’t stand the collective mind set of socialists. I refuse to accept the idea that capitalism has failed. The only failure here was government intervention. It wasn’t needed.
Socialism has failed more often than not. Capitalism is why America is so envied throughout the world. Our freedoms are unequaled around the globe.
It’s funny how the socialist leaders in the world all come running to America to get their health care. Maybe not all, but there sure are a lot that do. Why is that?
The problem with America today is that there is 25% of the populace that have lost all touch with morality. Their morals suck, and the Democrats represent them. There is another, at least, 25% of Americans that are clueless about the issues and don’t bother to pay attention to anything unless it is reported on their TV by a biased source.
I just seem to be rambling today. I am tired of the BS. This report came out in light of the fact that Americans are tired of being taxed to death, and are now going to protest in large numbers, and the majority of them will be right leaning in their politics. This report was meant to denigrate those that intend to go to these rallies. Me, my wife and son, will be at a rally on the 15th. Guess what? It’s after work too. I personally would have taken a day off if I had to in order to participate.
I hope you attend a rally near you. Let Washington know that enough is enough! Taxed enough already! (T.E.A.)
You Democrats that think the right wing in America is dead have a rude awakening in store for you in the 2010 elections. Most Americans aren’t stupid and will realize the huge error they made in electing a Democrat Congress and President in the same cycle.
The Department of Homeland Security is warning law enforcement officials about a rise in “rightwing extremist activity,” saying the economic recession, the election of America’s first black president and the return of a few disgruntled war veterans could swell the ranks of white-power militias.
A footnote attached to the report by the Homeland Security Office of Intelligence and Analysis defines “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.
Rightwing Extremism: Current Economic and Political Climate Fueling Resurgence in Radicalization and Recruitment.
The “report” (PDF file here) was one of the most embarrassingly shoddy pieces of propaganda I’d ever read out of DHS. I couldn’t believe it was real.
A friend of ours in the deep southland sends us the letter that the American Legion national commander, David K. Rehbein sent to Department of Homeland Security secretary Janet Napolitano in response to the report that TSO wrote about yesterday which expressed an unwarranted fear of us right-wing veterans. The letter reads;
Dear Secretary Napolitano,
On behalf of the 2.6 million-member American Legion, I am stating my concern about your April 7 report, “Rightwing Extremism: Current Economic and Political Climate Fueling Resurgence and Recruitment.”
I wonder if the FBI is going to have enough agents to cover all the tea parties scheduled for tomorrow?
It was easier to keep track of us crazy right-wing (or is it rightwing?) fanatics in the old days. I can recall going to several demonstrations at the Islamic Center in Washington, D.C. back in early 1980 to protest against the Iranians holding our diplomats (they wouldn’t let us any closer to the shuttered Iranian embassy). Working the outskirts of the crowd with their cameras were two or three guys whose clothing and demeanor screamed “Feds!.” They took pictures of everyone in the crowd of about 200 and then got in their dark sedans and left. No doubt, on some old fashioned microfiche somewhere in the bowels of FBI headquarters, there are images of a young me, face twisted in anger, shaking a fist at a burning effigy of Ayatollah Khomenei. (In fact, there is an inset picture of me doing exactly that on the contents page of a Newsweek from that period.)
