Forces of Evil in a Bozo Nightmare


This is the title of a recent report that oozed out of the brains of our esteemed Homeland Security scholars:

Rightwing Extremism: Current Economic and Political Climate Fueling Resurgence in Radicalization and Recruitment.

The PDF of the edited version of the original 200+ page document that was shortened down to about 10 pages can be found by a simple Google search.

I'll include a few highlights here, though, including the definition of what constitutes extremism:

Rightwing [sic – told you: scholars] 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 [sic], rejecting federal authority in favor of state or local authority, or rejecting government authority entirely [boldface mine]. It may include groups and individuals that are dedicated to a single issue, such as opposition to abortion or immigration.

Further, the report goes on to cite returning veterans as possible persons of concern:

Rightwing extremists will attempt to recruit and radicalize returning veterans in order to exploit their skills and knowledge derived from military training and combat. These skills and knowledge have the potential to boost the capabilities of extremists—including lone wolves or small terrorist cells—to carry out violence. The willingness of a small percentage of military personnel to join extremist groups during the 1990s because they were disgruntled, disillusioned, or suffering from the psychological effects of war is being replicated today.

So all y'all who believe it is well within our rights to protest against gub'mint abuse of our Constitution and our civil rights, keep a look out:

DHS 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.

Dang it. Now I gotta come up with an outfit for when they come a knockin'. Cause here's what this "extremist" believes:

DISBAND THE DEPARTMENT OF HOMELAND SECURITY NOW.

Okay, when you did the "burnin' down the trailer park" post I thought it was just me. But now I know... you only use Beck lyrics for post titles. Well, maybe not EXCLUSIVELY...

Miss Cherry: J'Adore Beck. Third row, concert last fall: religious experience.

Didn't get the cartoon. Like the rest of the post. Fact is, I told the world that the Obamanation would take the focus off of muslib terror groups and use the Fed's powers to harass domestic Christian political opposition.

Really doesn't have much to do with the new "Homeland Security Department" or the additional powers FISA and the Feds accrued under Bush.

The IRS, FBI, ATF, DOJ etc... all existed prior to 9-11. And all will be used by the Obamanation to crack down on Christians they label "extremists" and "potential right-wing terrorists".

The targeting of returning veterans is especially loathesome.

Well in that case, you MUST read this: Beck Puppets Trash Radiohead Hotel Room.Do they still use the puppets on tour? Those things are hilarious.

Tea party coverage has been telling. I saw one asshat with the nerve to complain that a poster showing obama as a pirate was offensive.
Napolitano wasn't a bad governor. She even (reluctantly) signed some decent anti-illegal legislation. Of course, she had a conservative legislature to keep her in check. Now she's cut loose with all the left wackos supporting her worst impulses.
Stupid woman.

Troll: The point is this: in HSD's recent investigation and report of "left wing" terrorist groups, they point to known, operating organizations like ALF and ELF. In this report, one of the very first sentences acknowledges that they do not know of ANY right wing extremist organizations, but are only putting out a warning. In other words: HSD is doing what they've always done: spreading hysteria and fear so that they can pass questionable initiatives in the name of our "safety." We have the FBI, CIA, and the American Military. Why do we need a separate Homeland Security Dept. if not as a way to intimidate innocent citizens? I don't care what jack wipe from what side of the aisle is our El Presidente – it's an illegal, immoral organization.

Miss Cherry: If I were a puppet? I'd trash a Radiohead hotel room, too. Cause I'm a creep. I'm a weirdo.

Boxer: I think it's time to use the shovel to bonk some heads.

K9: Beck put on a paired down, highly energetic show. He opened with the sonic boom that is "Devils' Haircut" and our heads didn't screw back on until the lights went up.

Gnome: Just like the pied piper, who led rats through the streets. Just like marionettes, dancing to the symphony of destruction.

Moi,

I got YOUR point. The text was clear. It was JUST the cartoon I didn't get. It seems to imply that the left and the Traitor-Democrat-Party-Of-Filth objected to the creation of DHS. Nothing could be further from the truth.
