T his article makes light of the Department of Homeland Security report which seems to be what most people are doing, other than those who are upset that returning from Iraq veterans were named as possible suspects. But people I believe it is a shot across the bow of freedom loving Americans.
“Found on the second page of the report is this ominous warning:
“Right wing extremism in the United States can be broadly divided into those groups, movements, and adherents 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.”
So if you’re pro-life and want to control our borders, don’t be surprised if you wind up on a terrorist watch list, especially if you’re also a veteran. The report warns that 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.”
Below is a list of 14 characteristics of a “domestic terrorist” that were pulled right out of the report.
