The Founders were “Domestic Terrorists” According to Obama’s DHS

In an April 7, 2009 Department of Homeland Security (DHS) “declassified” report on the “Top Threats” to American security titled, Rightwing Extremism, DHS explains how our nation’s Founding Fathers would have certainly qualified for Obama’s definition of “domestic terrorists” and “rightwing extremists.”

In fact, most Americans qualify!

According to the DHS Assessment Report, “This product is one of a series of intelligence assessments published by theExtremism and Radicalization Branch to facilitate a greater understanding of the phenomenon of violent radicalization in the United States. The information is provided to federal, state, local, and tribal counterterrorism and law enforcement officials so they may effectively deter, prevent, preempt, or respond to terrorist attacks against the United States. Federal efforts to influence domestic public opinion must be conducted in an overt and transparent manner, clearly identifying United States Government sponsorship.” (PDF file here)

How hard is it to qualify as an “extreme rightwing radical domestic terrorist?” Not as hard as you might think…

“Rightwing 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, 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.”

This is exactly how Obama’s DHS now defines “extreme rightwing radical domestic terrorist,” and this is officially the primary concern of Obama’s DHS. They are far less concerned with Al Qaeda, open borders, terror and drug trafficking, Iranian or North Korean nukes. It is the average American that they fear most!

(U) DHS – Key Findings

Rightwing extremists may be gaining new recruits by playing on their fears about several emergent issues. The economic downturn and the election of the first African American president present unique drivers for rightwing radicalization and recruitment.

The consequences of a prolonged economic downturn—including real estate foreclosures, unemployment, and an inability to obtain credit—could create a fertile recruiting environment for rightwing extremists and even result in confrontations between such groups and government authorities similar to those in the past.

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.

The current economic and political climate has some similarities to the 1990s when rightwing extremism experienced a resurgence fueled largely by an economic recession, criticism about the outsourcing of jobs, and the perceived threat to U.S. power and sovereignty by other foreign powers.

Growth of these groups subsided in reaction to increased government scrutiny as a result of the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing and disrupted plots, improvements in the economy, and the continued U.S. standing as the preeminent world power.

The possible passage of new restrictions on firearms and the return of military veterans facing significant challenges reintegrating into their communities could lead to the potential emergence of terrorist groups or lone wolf extremists capable of carrying out violent attacks.

Proposed imposition of firearms restrictions and weapons bans likely would attract new members into the ranks of rightwing extremist groups, as well as potentially spur some of them to begin planning and training for violence against the government. The high volume of purchases and stockpiling of weapons and ammunition by rightwing extremists in anticipation of restrictions and bans in some parts of the country continue to be a primary concern to law enforcement

Returning veterans possess combat skills and experience that are attractive to rightwing extremists. DHS/I&A is concerned that rightwing extremists will attempt to recruit and radicalize returning veterans in order to boost their violent capabilities.

Has anyone – besides me – noticed that despite the fact that most violent crimes, most violent protests, and most radical acts of terror in America, are NOT committed by your average white Americans, or even the average Republican, there is NO reference to “Leftwing” or “Black Panther” styled radicalism here???

Those seeking to rob fellow Americans of their hard earned property in the name of a greater communal good, are no threat to America at all. Only those who oppose these Marxist efforts qualify as dangerous “domestic terrorists” under Obama’s DHS. Those who commit voter fraud on a massive scale like Obama’s ACORN are no problem. But those who oppose it are “racists,” and a “dangerous threat.”

In short, if you still foolishly believe in the Founding documents as they were written and ratified, oppose an oppressive federal government run by unbridled Marxists, cling to your bibles and guns, affirm the unalienable individual Rights to Life, Liberty, or the Pursuit of Happiness, or national sovereignty as established in the Founders Declaration of Independence, you are now a “domestic terrorist!”

If you prefer FREEDOM over Marxism, only that which you earn instead of that which the government is willing to take from others in order to purchase your vote with gifts from the public trough, then you too are a “domestic terrorist.”

If you are a member of the armed services returning from duty abroad, you are a particular kind of special threat to American safety and security. You are worse than the average Republican or conservative terrorist. You they must watch even closer… Sure, you fought for freedom abroad, but you had better not try that here in the U.S. anymore…

According to Obama’s DHS…

“Rightwing extremists are harnessing this historical election as a recruitment tool. Many rightwing 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 Scholars and experts disagree over poverty’s role in motivating violent radicalization or terrorist activity.”

“Rightwing extremists are increasingly galvanized by these concerns and leverage them as drivers for recruitment. From the 2008 election timeframe to the present, rightwing extremists have capitalized on related racial and political prejudices in expanded propaganda campaigns, thereby reaching out to a wider audience of potential sympathizers.”

This entire DHS document is devoted to “rightwing extremists” and the perceived threat they pose to the new Marxist administration. No doubt, I am blipping all over their radar about now, just for writing this story so that the average American knows who it is at their door at 3:AM, and why they are there… YOU ARE a TERRORIST!

  • Oppose the murder of innocent children? – You’re a terrorist!
  • Oppose Marxism in America” – You’re a terrorist!
  • Oppose someone taking you bible or guns away? – You’re a terrorist!
  • Oppose use of taxpayer funds to wreck the free-market? – You’re a terrorist!
  • Want to keep what you earn? – You’re a terrorist!
  • Don’t think so? – READ the REPORT! – You’re a terrorist!

But You’re in Good Company

According to Obama and his new DHS henchmen, the men who threw Tea into the Boston Harbor were also terrorists. George Washington was a terrorist, at least according to the new definition of the term, under Obama’s DHS.

In fact, EVERY Founding Father would qualify as a “rightwing domestic terrorist” under the new DHS definition, as every last one believed and zealously supported a Right to Life, Individual Liberty, and the Right to individual define and pursue Happiness under our own steam. Not ONE of them would support anything the new administration is doing today and THAT is why they are VERY worried about all of you bible thumping, gun-toting, domestic terrorists!

Unlike Obamanation, the Founders believed that Americans have individual Rights, not collective mob control over each other and the earned assets of others.

Unlike Obamanation, the Founders believed that these Rights are “unalienable,” – endowed by our Creator, not meted out by Ivy League Marxist lawyers, for benefit of their personal political ambitions.

What Next?

How much more do you need to see? Judging by what we have seen in just the first 80 days of Obama rule, I’d say anything is possible. Obama-nuts were right, YES they CAN destroy America in no time flat, and they are…

Now if you think you are going to stop them, you had better think again.

It’s now official, and shared with both Military Command and all state and local law enforcement agencies, not to mention the FBI, NSA and CIA. If you try in any way to derail their full frontal assault on all things American, you have already been put on notice, you are labeled an “extreme rightwing domestic terrorist” and your future is much less promising than that of Osama Bin Laden.

Got a Plan?

No, you don’t. Nobody does, because nobody thought this could ever happen in America. They thought 9/11 could never happen either, on 9/10… Few are more clueless than congressional Republicans, busy begging Obama for their own washroom and welcoming the new White House dog.

Sadly, I see NO signs that “real” American patriots are ready to stand, unite and fight yet. Most are still asleep and many, who are awake, are still busy debating what a terrible candidate John McCain was…

But I won’t have to worry much longer. If I wasn’t on the short list of “domestic terrorists” before writing this column, I will be now.

But as I told a dear concerned friend a few days ago, I’d rather be broke and free, than broken by bondage. I’d rather live free than die a slave to Marxists. So, if you don’t hear from me after this, you will know which option Obama chose for me… I’m sure they will get to Limbaugh, Savage, Hannity and Beck before the get around to little ole me. But don’t worry, you’ll be next!

“High unemployment, however, has the potential to lead to alienation, thus increasing an individual’s susceptibility to extremist ideas. According to a 2007 study from the German Institute for Economic Research, there appears to be a strong association between a parent’s unemployment status and the formation of rightwing extremist beliefs in their children—specifically xenophobia and antidemocratic ideals.”
