    Homeland Security on guard for 'right-wing extremists'
    Returning U.S. military veterans singled out as particular threats

    WASHINGTON – A newly unclassified Department of Homeland Security report warns against the possibility of violence by unnamed "right-wing extremists" concerned about illegal immigration, increasing federal power, restrictions on firearms, abortion and the loss of U.S. sovereignty and singles out returning war veterans as particular threats.

    The report, titled "Right-wing Extremism: Current Economic and Political Climate Fueling Resurgence in Radicalization and Recruitment," dated April 7, states that "threats from white supremacist and violent anti-government groups during 2009 have been largely rhetorical and have not indicated plans to carry out violent acts."

    However, the document, first reported by talk-radio host and WND columnist Roger Hedgecock, goes on to suggest worsening economic woes, potential new legislative 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."
    The report from DHS' Office of Intelligence and Analysis defines right-wing extremism in the U.S. as "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 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."

    "[T]he consequences of a prolonged economic downturn – including real estate foreclosures, unemployment and an inability to obtain credit – could create a fertile recruiting environment for right-wing extremists and even result in confrontations between such groups and government authorities similar to those in the past," the report says.

    It adds that "growth in 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 pre-eminent world power."

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

    Most notable is the report's focus on the impact of returning war veterans.

    "Returning veterans possess combat skills and experience that are attractive to right-wing extremists," it says. "DHS/I&A is concerned that right-wing extremists will attempt to recruit and radicalize veterans in order to boost their violent capacities."

    The report cites the April 4 shooting deaths of three police officers in Pittsburgh as an example of what may be coming, claiming the alleged gunman holds a racist ideology and believes in anti-government conspiracy theories about gun confiscations, citizen detention camps and "a Jewish-controlled 'one-world government.'"

    It also suggests the election of an African-American president and the prospect of his policy changes "are proving to be a driving force for right-wing extremist recruitment and radicalization."

    The report also mentions "'end times' prophecies could motivate extremist individuals and groups to stockpile food, ammunition and weapons. These teachings also have been linked with the radicalization of domestic extremist individuals and groups in the past, such as the violent Christian Identity organizations and extremist members of the militia movement."

    "DHS/I&A assesses that right-wing extremist groups' frustration over a perceived lack of government action on illegal immigration has the potential to incite individuals or small groups toward violence," the report continues.

    The report states the DHS will be working with state and local partners over the next several months to determine the levels of right-wing extremist activity in the U.S.

    Last month, the chief of the Missouri highway patrol blasted a report issued by the Missouri Information Analysis Center that linked conservative groups to domestic terrorism, assuring that such reports no longer will be issued. The report had been compiled with the assistance of DHS.

    The report warned law enforcement agencies to watch for suspicious individuals who may have bumper stickers for third-party political candidates such as Ron Paul, Bob Barr and Chuck Baldwin.

    It further warned law enforcement to watch out for individuals with "radical" ideologies based on Christian views, such as opposing illegal immigration, abortion and federal taxes.

    Chief James Keathley of the Missouri State Patrol issued a statement that the release of the report, which outraged conservatives nationwide, prompted him to "take a hard look" at the procedures through which the report was released by the MIAC.

    "My review of the procedures used by the MIAC in the three years since its inception indicates that the mechanism in place for oversight of reports needs improvement," he wrote. "Until two weeks ago, the process for release of reports from the MIAC to law enforcement officers around the state required no review by leaders of the Missouri State Highway Patrol or the Department of Public Safety."

    "For that reason, I have ordered the MIAC to permanently cease distribution of the militia report," he said. "Further, I am creating a new process for oversight of reports drafted by the MIAC that will require leaders of the Missouri State Highway Patrol and the Department of Public Safety to review the content of these reports before they are shared with law enforcement. My office will also undertake a review of the origin of the report by MIAC."

    Have you been stocking up on ammo? Bought a couple of extra firearms in advance of Obomba? Then you are a ‘rightwing extremist’ Isn’t that great? F***ing democrats.

    This is an insult to people like me who believe in States Sovereignty; so now I am a right wing extremism! Justice Thomas quote “beware of the footnotes.”

    Another article that was printed in Washington Times today:

    Federal agency warns of radicals on right
    9-page report sent to police

    By Audrey Hudson (Contact) and Eli Lake (Contact) | Tuesday, April 14, 2009

    The Department of Homeland Security is warning law enforcement officials about a rise in "rightwing extremist activity," saying the economic recession, the election of America's first black president and the return of a few disgruntled war veterans could swell the ranks of white-power militias.

    A footnote attached to the report by the Homeland Security Office of Intelligence and Analysis defines "rightwing extremism in the United States" as including not just racist or hate groups, but also groups that reject federal authority in favor of state or local authority.

    "It may include groups and individuals that are dedicated to a single-issue, such as opposition to abortion or immigration," the warning says.

    I know it is preaching to the chior here but.
    The vote didn't change anything and no one in Washington has the KAHONEYS to stand up and do what is right.
    So we are coming to the third and last choice very fast.
    All the while our goverment is making all the true Americans look like the enemy and the bad guys so they can teach our children to turn us in and show where we have our supplies store.
    IF YOU WANT IT COME AND GET IT :mad:

    Governor Perry admited being an extremist today as he is upholding Texas and the 10th Amendment!

    I'm still seriously contimplating a move back to Texas again and will be looking at some property when I go down for a visit next month! :D

    I just can't believe that the 'true Americans' are now extremists! Geesh.

    I just read that the American Legion wrote a letter to the DHS in protest of their bs. Good for them!

    "Some of these groups want to replace the government with a Marxist-Leninist system."

    Hmmm....isn't this what Barry wants to do with all his blather about "leveling the playing field" "spreading the wealth" and saying that "the Constitution needs to be amended because it doesn't address redistribution of wealth"? (Gee, if you ask me, that sounds like he's a COMMIE. We all know that a "socialist" is just a commie that's too scared to call themselves a commie.) So how exactly is Barry Hussein NOT a possible left-wing terrorist? Oh yeah, that's right. He "won" 53% (or thereabouts) of the popular vote thus giving him (in the words of the Obamites) a "sweeping mandate" to implement his "change":rolleyes::rolleyes:
