America's Biggest Threat

Step aside, al-queda.  America now has a bigger threat.

Homeland security is shifting its focus. The office of Homeland Security under the Obama administration has identified newer and bigger threats to America.  No longer will be on the lookout for Arab bombers looking to bomb bridges or fly planes into buildings.  No longer will we be cautious about middle-eastern men shouting "Allah is Great!" as they seek to kill American citizens around the world.

No, indeed. 

Now the biggest threat to America are people who oppose abortion and taxes.

Do you need to go back and re-read that?  It's not a typo. 

That's right. People who hold conservative, traditional American values, who honor our military, who love God and country, who are tired of tax cheats and the nanny-state ... those are the people we really have to watch out for.

Hmmm.... I wonder what the food is like in an interment camp...

Check out Val's Word post on this in more detail from yesterday.

Actually, I read it. Its more aimed at those who would take those views to violent extremes and try to overthrow the government instead of voting them out.

I read it too and while it's main content is aimed at those fringe groups ala McVeigh the wording in some parts is much to general for comfort lumping in mainstream conservatives with extremists in the same breath.

If I were paranoid I would think it were being done so in a move to make the two groups synonymous. Repeat something long enough and folks start to believe it, that kind of thing.

Actually, neither of you have read it. Only the "Summary" has been released to the press. The actual report is apparently several hundred pages long and has only been released to law enforcement agencies. (Though I suspect it won't be long before someone leaks it).

Red is correct. The bulk of the report is aimed at "extremists" who would attempt to use violence to make a point. However, the report also includes groups that are mainstream conservative; people who think government is too big, people who think government spending is out of control, etc. and who have no history or indication toward violence.

That is the part that is very scary. This says to me, that the trial balloons are going up to see if conservatives can be shut up in spite of Constitutional free speech. This is going to lay the goundwork to try and shut down Limbaugh, Hannity, O'Reilly, et al, under the guise of "security." Beyond those folks, it could even be used to close churches and to jail individuals.

I have both the rightwing and leftwing documents linked on my most recent post. You'll notice in the leftwing documents there is no mention of people who are vegans or "want to spread the wealth around."
