Right Winged Extremists...Guess That's Me

Click on the title which will take you directly to the Department of Homeland Security's Report.
Here is a small sampling:

"The Department of Homeland Security is warning law enforcement agencies that recent news is helping "right-wing extremist groups" recruit new members and could lead to violence, and warns about the possible recruitment and radicalization of returning veterans.

DHS' Office of Intelligence and Analysis issued an intelligence assessment last week that said it has no specific information that domestic right-wing terrorists are currently planning acts of violence, but right-wing extremists may be gaining new recruits by playing on fears about the recession and the election of the first African American president.

The office called them "unique drivers for right-wing radicalization and recruitment.""Right-wing extremists have capitalized on the election of the first African American president, and are focusing their efforts to recruit new members, mobilize existing supporters and broaden their scope and appeal through propaganda, but they have not yet turned to attack planning," the assessment reads. "

Please read the full report. Any of us, myself included, who are not happy with the way Obama is 'leading' our country, are now, more than ever, going to be targeted by law enforcement on the local, state and federal level. I find it interesting, the timing of this report comes just one day prior to the national Tax Day Tea Parties taking place tomorrow across our country. Coincidence? Doubt it.

A quote from Samuel Johnson that addresses this very same subject in his 18th century book “The Patriot”;

“It is the quality of patriotism to be jealous and watchful, to observe all secret machinations, and to see publick dangers at a distance. The true lover of his country is ready to communicate his fears, and to sound the alarm, whenever he perceives the approach of mischief. But he sounds no alarm, when there is no enemy; he never terrifies his countrymen till he is terrified himself. The patriotism, therefore, may be justly doubted of him, who professes to be disturbed by incredibilities…”

Terrified? Absolutely!
