Obama-Nation: Targeting Right-Wing “Extremism”

Posted by cann0nba11 on April 14, 2009

UPDATE: The American Legion took offense to this report and wrote an excellent response.

Holy crap… take a read of Michelle Malkin’s latest article. The Department of Homeland Security has issued a report titled Rightwing Extremism: Current Economic and Political Climate Fueling Resurgence in Radicalization and Recruitment. Queue the Alannis Morrisette CD and ponder how ironic the party of Bill Ayers and Saul Alinsky is concerned that conservatives are getting their dander up. Some quotes from this official DHS report:

Right wing extremism in the United States can be broadly divided into those groups, movements, and adherents that are primarily hate-oriented, and those that are mainly anti-government, 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. (p.2)

Opposition to immigration? Was this written by La Raza, a truly radical and racist group endorsed by the left? Border security proponents are against ILLEGAL immigration. Our country was built on LEGAL immigration. This sentence alone discredits the validity of the report. Anyone that claims that conservatives are against legal immigration is clueless.

Right wing extremists are harnessing this historical election as a recruitment tool. Many right wing 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. (p.3)

Recruitment tool? Wasn’t the gist of the Obama campaign all about recruiting people to join Obama’s army? Didn’t little militias pop up with kids dressed in uniforms, singing songs, etc.? But that was cute. That was patriotic. When conservatives exercise their first amendment rights to call b.s. on the far-left stances taken by the Obama administration, that’s right wing extremism. If opposing illegal immigration, increasing handouts to those that are too lazy to work, and expressing concern about the government reducing my second amendment rights, color me guilty and kiss my ass. Joe Biden may think it is “patriotic” for some of us to pay more taxes, I happen to think that defending our Constitution is about as patriotic as it gets.

Debates over appropriate immigration levels and enforcement policy generally fall within the realm of protected political speech under the First Amendment, but in some cases, anti-immigration or strident pro-enforcement fervor has been directed against specific groups and has the potential to turn violent. (p.5)

There it is again: “Anti-immigration.” Is the word “illegal” missing from the DHS vocabulary? Illegal immigration is the problem people, not legal immigration. And talk to me about pro-enforcement fervor. Who in their right mind can find a way to negatively spin American support for enforcing the laws on our books? If I want our borders to actually be BORDERS I’m an anti-immigration right wing extremist?

Listen up people. This document is the first chapter in a potentially very scary period in our history. By publishing this report DHS is drawing a line in the sand and is specifically calling out conservatives as the target. If this document was only about skinheads, the KKK or other legitimately radical groups I wouldn’t be upset at all. The government has written reports on groups from the other side of the political spectrum such as environmental terrorists or the Weather Underground. But this report is worded vaguely enough to include a huge swath of our population. As Michelle Malkin says in her article:

“…past reports have always been very specific in identifying the exact groups, causes, and targets of domestic terrorism, i.e., the ALF, ELF, and Stop Huntingdon wackos who have engaged in physical harassment, arson, vandalism, and worse against pharmaceutical companies, farms, labs, and university researchers. By contrast, the piece of crap report issued on April 7 is a sweeping indictment of conservatives.”

    Crazy Homeland Security Warning on “Rightwing” authored by Brian Marcus, a Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Analyst. Brian Marcus is Analyst, Domestic Terrorism—U.S. Extremism and Radicalization Branch, Department of Homeland Security. This new Homeland Security warning has some of the same information as the “secret” DHS warning that was reported by ABC in 2005 here “Secret FBI Report Highlights Domestic Terror” . The new document highlighted by Drudge today is a regurgitation of some of the exact same phrases and terminology used in 2005.

    How do these link up. Well Brian Marcus, an Anti-Defamation League (ADL) member, used to work with Brian Levin another ADL member and Director of the Center for the Study of Hate & Extremism at California State University, San Bernardino. Brian Marcus also used to work there in San Bernardino and then went on to the DHS.

    Both Brian’s, Levin and Marcus, knew David B. Deitch another ADL member whose bio is here, and spoke at conferences with the Brian’s and had a relationship with them. David worked for the Counterterrorism Section of the Criminal Division of the Justice Department and is the one who screwed up the trial of the Lodi terrorists, see here . It appears to me that David leaked the 2005 DHS document to one of the Brian’s who then gave it to ABC. And, Brian Levin is quoted by ABC in their report.

    How did they come to putting out the current crazy report. Well, the initial report came out of the government and ADL following and tracking White Supremacists. The ADL shared data with the DHS and gathered at conferences together. The internet is full of their actions, most of which seem worthy. However, it appears that Brian Marcus’ political viewpoint and leanings are now bleeding through in the current crazy report. Until the very young Brian Marcus (you can find a cached version of him with plugs in his balding scalp) joined DHS he was occupied with following online “hate speech” and cyber bullying, particularly of jewish youngsters. All that is fine, but Brian has taken a massive leap from low level net watcher to author of this poorly written and crazy document.

    Tracking white supremacists may be a worthy cause but this Homeland Security document is so poorly written it makes anyone who believes in gun rights, is anti-abortion, or dislikes Obama to be a potential terrorist. When you use the term “rightwing” you are using a pejorative term that all conservatives are called by liberals. So to conservatives, like me, it sounds like Brian Marcus is telling people to be afraid of all conservatives. Crazy.

    So, when you see FBI agents or others taking your photo or writing down your license plates (as was reported yesterday by a Freeper) know you are going into the DHS database. Make sure you smile for your photo.

    PS I wrote Brian Marcus at the DHS and explained that I will be leaving out of the country on vacation for a few days and so I asked him to please not put me on any watch lists as I need to be able to fly to my short cruise. 🙂

    Well, during the Bush era and the warrantless wiretapping and violations of Constitutional protection against warrantless searches, the neo-coonservatives were fond of proclaiming “if you’ve done nothing wrong, then you’ve nothing to worry about”.

    Shouldn’t that same mindset hold true today? Or has the morbidity of hypocrisy come home to the practitioners of that black craft?

    So, what’s the problem?

    “Rightwing 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” Why is it the Left wants to always bring up thr race issue?

    I wrote about this too–one of the researchers in that report has a thing about culture and migrant populations–a nudge of course to amnesty. The wording in the report is offensive to any conservative because the language goes far beyond hate groups. Are they investigating people who marched in praise of cop killer Lovelle Mixon (obviously fanned into a murderous rage by Keith Olbermann, Rachel Maddow and blogs who are the mouthpieces of the Democratic Party :>) ? And they wonder why conservatives give Congress and the prez such low approval ratings. They’ve declared ideological war on us for sure. Plus Napolitano’s big moment was investigating the Oklahoma City bombings. I guess that brings back fond memories for her. Good post–kay

    I just get so tired of the rants about conservative commentators. If you watch any statist commentator, they’re just as impassioned and often not nearly as polite!

    You reckon Homeland Security is gonna try to track all those “extremists” at the tea parties in 2,300 cities today? :>)

  8. Joe Heathen said

    Hey, if you haven’t done anything wrong, then you don’t have anything to worry about. Right?

    That’s what all the neo-coonservatives said about the Patriot Act and invited anyone to monitor their telephone calls and Internet activity. Suddenly, their “rights” are being trampled upon?

    Jesus, do those dolts know what hypocrisy is? Can’t they just eat the big serving of crow they cooked for themselves? Whatta bunch of whiners. They sure didn’t seem to care about anyone’s rights five and six years ago.
