DHS: Rightwing Extremist Threat

First Missouri began watching out for you psychos with your Ron Paul for President bumper stickers with their report The Modern Militia Movement. Now the Federal Government has gotten into the act.

You're probably on a Department of Homeland Security list somewhere if you meet the following criteria:
  • Armed Forces Veteran returning home from Iraq & Afghanistan = Possible terrorist.
  • Against new firearms restriction laws = Possible terrorist.
  • Purchasing guns or stocking up on ammo (because it is so dang hard to find these days) = Possible terrorist.
  • Expressing dissent against turning America into a socialist regime = Possible terrorist.
  • (I'll add this due to the timing of the report) Attend one of the Tax Day Tea Parties = Possible terrorist.
  • Conservative = Possible terrorist.

Frankly, these reports are a travesty and show just how quickly we are slipping down a dark road. The Missouri report smacks of profiling, intimidation and censorship. The DHS memo is more of the same and a complete slap in the face to anyone who has served our country in the Armed Forces.

Here DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano DOES NOT apologize:

And, to add insult to injury: according to the Wall Street Journal, the FBI has been actively focusing on veterans as possible domestic terrorist threats as far back as the last weeks of the Bush administration.
The FBI documents show the bureau was working with investigators inside the nation's uniformed services "in an effort to identify those current or former soldiers who pose a domestic terrorism threat." The other agencies working with the FBI are the U.S. Army Criminal Investigative Division, the U.S. Air Force Office of Special Investigations and the Naval Criminal Investigative Service.
