The real agenda becomes clear

The real agenda of  Obama and his cronies is starting to become clearer with the just released Homeland Security report on “right wing extremism”:

For eight years, we’ve been treated to hysterical rhetoric from Democrats, including Barack Obama, about the scourge of “domestic spying.” Now that the Obama administration is openly calling for domestic spying — the real thing, not the smear used against President Bush — they’re suddenly silent.

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS), in coordination with the FBI, has issued an intelligence assessment on what it calls “Rightwing Extremism.” It is appalling. The nakedly political document announces itself as a “federal effort to influence domestic public opinion.” It proceeds, in what it acknowledges is the absence of any “specific information that domestic rightwing terrorists are currently planning acts of violence,” to speculate that “rightwing” political views might “drive” such violence — violence, it further surmises, that might be abetted by military veterans returning home after putting their lives on the line in Iraq and Afghanistan. And for good measure, in violation of both FBI guidelines and congressional statutes, the Obama administration promises scrutiny of ordinary Americans’ political views, speech, and assembly. –       Andrew McCarthy

In blatant violation of the Constitution in general and the 1st Amendment in particular, the Federal government publicly smears anyone who dares to express their views that Washington might be out of control in it’s grab for power and it’s completely unrestrained spending!

This is only a short step from what the Obama camp demonstrated during the presidential campaign in demanding that the Justice Dept open criminal investigations against those who made statements against Obama that his people claimed were false.

Yes… now we see that tactic again beginning to raise its ugly head again:  speak out against us, go to jail!  So much for “the post partisan healer”!  But then, many of us have known that from the beginning.

    Man, I need a shovel to get through all the crap that was in this blog post. Let me start at the beginning and work my way down.

    The report is on (as you put in quotes) “right wing extremism” and is about exactly that: EXTREMISM. They are not talking about Rush, Hannity, Bill O’Reilly, Michelle Malkin, or any other gun-loving, tax-hating, tea party attending run of the mill Republican. Frankly, I find it funny that many conservatives automatically jump to the assumption that the report about extremism is targeting them. From what I read in the actual report (which I did read), the report focuses on hate groups and anti-government groups. They are not targeting everyone who peacefully disagree with their policy, they are targeting groups that are recruiting new members and stockpiling large amounts of weapons and ammunition to potentially carry out acts of violence against minorities or even acts of domestic terrorism just like the Oklahoma City bombings.

    I vehemently disagree with the assertion that publicly acknowledging that the government monitoring extremist groups activity (which they are doing on both sides of the political spectrum by the way) is “domestic spying.” And if it were possible, I would disagree even more strongly to the assertion that the very real use of warrantless wiretaps on American citizens during the Bush administration is nothing more than a liberal smear. If anything this is a huge step in the right direction because they are not hiding their actions from public scrutiny as the Bush administration did.

    And will you stop beating the dead horse of the Obama campaign writing one letter to the justice department about a single organization (American Issues Project) violating campaign finance laws (which they did, by the way). They are not criminalizing dissenting speech. I would hope that kind of intellectual dishonesty is below a man of your stature.

    Now I know how mad these comments will make you, so I’ll give you a couple of days to calm down. Please try to refrain from inferring that I’ve been brainwashed again in any response you may make.

    I am not angry. I am just sad that you continue to be so willfully blind to the way that terms such as “extremist” are being continually redefined to include any objection to the actions of the Federal government and to paint many Christians and all true conservatives with that broad brush.

    I know that you probably aren’t interested in anything written by Oliver North, but here it is anyway. I find myself in agreement with much of what he says because, other than the military veteran part, it also describes ME:

    “According to the U.S. government, I am an extremist. I am a Christian and meet regularly with other Christians to study God’s word. My faith convinces me the prophecies in the Holy Bible are true. I believe in the sanctity of human life, oppose abortion, and want to preserve marriage as the union of a man and a woman. I am a veteran with skills and knowledge derived from military training and combat. I own several firearms, and I frequently shoot them, buy ammunition, and consider efforts to infringe on my Second Amendment rights to be wrong and unconstitutional. I fervently support the sovereignty of the United States, and I am deeply concerned about our economy, increasingly higher taxes, illegal immigration, soaring unemployment, and actions by our government that will bury my children beneath a mountain of debt.

    Apparently, all this makes me a “rightwing extremist.” At least, that’s what it says in the April 7 “Assessment” issued by the Office of Intelligence and Analysis at the Department of Homeland Security. The nine-page report, titled “Rightwing Extremism: Current Economic and Political Climate Fueling Resurgence in Radicalization and Recruitment,” is full of warnings about American citizens who share any part of my background or subscribe to the beliefs above. It is one of the most alarming documents produced by our government that I ever have read.

    Evidently, neither you nor I ever was supposed to read this “Assessment.” At the bottom of the cover page is a warning that it is “not to be released to the public, the media, or other personnel who do not have a valid need-to-know.” We’re Americans. We have a need to know what’s going on in our government, especially in an administration that promised to be “transparent.” A full copy of the report is posted at http://www.FreedomAlliance.org.

    The “Assessment” purports to alert law enforcement officials that “rightwing extremists” — the term is used more than 35 times — are intent on exploiting Americans who have strongly held beliefs on everything from Christian faith to rising unemployment, U.S. sovereignty and the Second Amendment. It vilifies those of us in these categories by references to neo-Nazis, racists, militias, white supremacists and other “hate groups.” Notably, the report includes a warning that right-wing extremism “may include groups and individuals that are dedicated to a single issue, such as opposition to abortion or immigration.”

    BTW – I think I have finally figured out why you keep believing the Big O… you listen to what he SAYS which is often soothing and peaceful sounding, rather than paying attention to what he and his cronies DO which is often the exact opposite….

    Which counts more in the long run… words or actions?

    As I have stated before, being willfully blind is all a matter of perspective. Enjoy your tea.
