Today – Tax Day – many…ordinary, decent, Obama-fearing folk have gathered at Tea Party events in 500 locations across the US to protest against rising taxes and the ever increasing role of Big Government in their lives. -James Delingpole Telegraph, U.K.
How has the Obama machine responded? Well, funnily enough, in a manner which would surely meet the approval of its Socialist counterparts on this side of the pond: by smearing the the opposition.
This smear takes the form of a nine-page memorandum recently released to police and sheriff departments across America called “Rightwing Extremism: Current Economic and Political Climate Fueling Resurgence in Radicalization and Recruitment”. It was produced by the US’s Department of Homeland Security Intelligence and Analysis office, to help police spot the tell-tale signs indicating potentially dangerous right wing extremism. They include:
No really, I’m not making this up. Here’s a representative paragraph (from the Obama admin. report:
“Many rightwing extremists are antagonistic toward the new presidential administration and its perceived stance on a range of issues, including immigration and citizenship, the expansion of social programs to minorities, and restrictions on firearms ownership and use. Rightwing extremists are increasingly galvanized by these concerns and leverage them as drivers for recruitment.”
And the report’s evidence to justify its warning of this so-called “resurgence” in right-wing extremism? None whatsoever, as it admits here:
“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.”
In other words the whole report is little more than a mud-slinging exercise designed to brand anyone who doesn’t think Barack Hussein Obama is the greatest thing since sliced bread as some kind of closet neo-Nazi.
Sound familiar? Well it should to anyone who has watched a TV thriller in the last two decades. Have you noticed how the bad guys in these series hardly ever to belong to any of the terrorist organisations which pose a genuine threat (animal rights; Islamists; etc) but almost unvariably to some sinister extreme right terror group we’ve never heard of before?
Lou Gebhart, from Centennial, Colorado. He is dressed in Sons of Liberty style, which is authentic Revolutionary War period clothing. Note the walking stick in the form of a snake, which you should not tread on.
Leftie screenwriters, bien-pensant ecclesiastical bloggers, ghastly lefties generally, just love the idea that the greatest danger to the world comes from the extreme right. And it just doesn’t.
Right-wing extremism is a mythical left-liberal bogeyman, nothing more.
Burgeoning Liberal Fascism, on the other hand: now there’s something we should worry about very much indeed. Thanks for the words, James Delingpole, Telegraph, U.K.
“Rightwing extremism in the United States can be broadly divided into those groups, movements, and adherents that are primarily hate-oriented (based on hatred of particular religious, racial or ethnic groups), and those that are mainly antigovernment, rejecting federal authority in favor of state or local authority, or rejecting government authority entirely. It may include groups and individuals that are dedicated to a single issue, such as opposition to abortion or immigration.” Exerpt from DHS/Office of Intelligence and Analysis report.
Many people are angry with both parties for the earmark orgy.
“(U//FOUO) DHS/I&A will be working with its state and local partners over the next several months to ascertain with greater regional specificity the rise in rightwing extremist activity in the United States, with a particular emphasis on the political, economic, and social factors that drive rightwing extremist radicalization.” Exerpt from DHS/Office of Intelligence and Analysis report.
This man is freaked out about Obama’s all out assault on natural gas and oil drilling in the United States.
Keith Johnson, Sr. from Sitka, Alaska, is a Tlingit American-American. He did all of the beadwork himself. He told me that “if we had all our land no one would pay taxes.” Many indigenous Americans are the most patriotic “flag-wavers” you will ever meet.
These radicals caught the attention of the police. They are totally against the Federal Reserve and they told me they were not affiliated with Ron Paul, not 9/11 Truthers; they described themselves as “double independent.” – They handed me their flyer and took off.
You better run kids cause according to the DHS/I&A you are already classified as “rightwing extremist” THOUGHT CRIMINALS.
