Okay, So NOW I’m a Frakkin’ Right-Wing Extremist Militia Radical??!!

April 14, 2009

Blood Pressure Alert! Holy Crap!! I thought I was going to have to take some of my wife’s BP meds and I actually did check my PB and it was significantly higher than my norm. As Glen Beck would say, I had blood shooting out of my eyes, so now Janet Napolitano owes me a new monitor–blood is evidently corrosive on LCD screens.

Drudge had this posted first (as far as I saw) and the link failed time after time to the Washington Times article–it’s better now–Now it’s Drudge’s Prime Headline.

UPDATE: My apologies, it seems Michelle Malkin had this out early this morning–probably where DRUDGE noticed it first, but who knows–but here’s her due and link.

UPDATE II: You can go to my new post to see that Janny Napolly has confirmed her stand on the assessment.

Here is the first major excerpt:

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 always thought that “Homeland Security” from the 9/11 Panel recommendation sounded too suspiciously like Fatherland (Nazis) and Motherland (Communists)–so how’s that DHS thinking about me and you now?  So folks, where do you fit in that criteria? I’m smack in the middle of it, so now they’re worried I’m going a militia?? Are they trying to force those of us that cling to our God, Guns and jobs/money to fear that we should join together? Well, tomorrow they’re going to see quite a few Extremist Radicals at City Halls and other gathering places trying to show our solidarity against the federal government spending money they don’t have and that they plan to take from us, our children and grandchildren. They may also find that states are starting to protect their citizens against the federal government–Texas Governor Rick Perry and our Congress are the latest to draft bills to re-establish our State’s Sovereignty under the  Tenth Amendment of the US Constitution.

Beware of the Obamafascists (ACORN) that will confront us tomorrow at the Tea Parties!

Good luck tomorrow and Stand Tall for our Rights before they’re GONE! Or else we may become the USSA–United Socialist States of America!

Read the following article and here’s the actual document in .pdf

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.

The White House has distanced itself from the analysis. When asked for comment on its contents, White House spokesman Nick Shapiro said, “The President is focused not on politics but rather taking the steps necessary to protect all Americans from the threat of violence and terrorism regardless of its origins. He also believes those who serve represent the best of this country, and he will continue to ensure that our veterans receive the respect and benefits they have earned.”

The nine-page document was sent to police and sheriff’s departments across the United Stateson April 7 under the headline, “Rightwing Extremism: Current Economic and Political Climate Fueling Resurgence in Radicalization and Recruitment.”

It says the federal government “will be working with its state and local partners over the next several months” to gather information on “rightwing extremist activity in the United States.”

The joint federal-state activities will have “a particular emphasis” on the causes of “rightwing extremist radicalization.”

Homeland Security spokeswoman Sara Kuban said the report is one in an ongoing series of assessments by the department to “facilitate a greater understanding of the phenomenon of violent radicalization in the U.S.”

The report, which was first disclosed to the public by nationally syndicated radio host Roger Hedgecock, makes clear that the Homeland Security Department does not have “specific information that domestic rightwing terrorists are currently planning acts of violence.”It warns that fringe organizations are gaining recruits, but it provides no numbers.

The report says extremist groups have used President Obama as a recruiting tool.

“Most statements by rightwing extremists have been rhetorical, expressing concerns about the election of the first African American president, but stopping short of calls for violent action,” the report says. “In two instances in the run-up to the election, extremists appeared to be in the early planning stages of some threatening activity targeting the Democratic nominee, but law enforcement interceded.”

When asked about this passage, Secret Service spokesman Ed Donovan said, “We are concerned about anybody who will try to harm or plan to harm any one of our protectees. We don’t have the luxury to focus on one particular group at the exclusion of others.”

Congressional debates about immigration and gun control also make extremist groups suspicious and give them a rallying cry, the report says.

“It is unclear if either bill will be passed into law; nonetheless, a correlation may exist between the potential passage of gun control legislation and increased hoarding of ammunition, weapons stockpiling, and paramilitary training activities among rightwing extremists,” the report said.

“I refuse to allow my enemies to control the way I speak”

February 21, 2009

Kathy Shaidle has taken a stand and I stand with her. We cannot continue to be “cowards”, as our fabulous new and first Black U.S. Attorney General, Eric Holder, has accused, labeled and is correct in or on any terms any longer . We must stand for our rights of Free Speech and beliefs. Here’s her argument from RWN:

I refuse to allow my enemies to control the way I speak

My enemies are belligerent Muslims — from now on I’m calling them “brown supremicists” — and the radical left. Both are unfortunately being enabled by our liberal elite Establishment.

It should go without saying, therefore, that I refuse to allow my enemies to control the way I speak.

Because if they control the way I speak, they will win. And I plan to win. Competitiveness and success being foreign concepts to many liberals, I don’t expect them to comprehend that.

A note, therefore, to my enemies…

You believe in the existence of a strange creature called “group rights.” I do not accept the existence of said animal.

It follows that you also accept the notion of “group libel.” Obviously, I reject that notion also.

I refuse to accept the faddish notion that only certain groups are allowed to use certain “offensive” words when describing themselves.

I refuse to adopt the fad of writing “not all Muslims” whenever I speak about Islam.

During WW2, we spoke of “the Germans” and “the Japanese”.

No “not all” to be seen.

It was understood by normal, sane, patriotic and intelligent ordinary people that not every single solitary German was a Nazi. Even before we learned the story of Oskar Schindler and other “righteous gentiles,” U.S. citizens spoke of “good Germans” whose existence they were certain of. There were indeed angry Americans who beat up their German neighbors.

Interestingly, there was no similar backlash against Muslims after 9/11.

We knew there were “good Japanese” too — at least on our shores. Despite real (as opposed to imaginary persecution), Japanese Americans volunteered to serve their adopted country and became the most decorated unit, not just during WW2, but in the entire history of the US armed forces.

(Alas, a similar parallel does not exist in our current conflict for some reason.)

It was common knowledge that, yes, the Germans had invented all kinds of wonderful things and created lovely music and so forth, in a (real) glorious past (as opposed to the sometimes imaginary glorious past frequently cited by Muslim apologists.)

Likewise the Japanese.

However, at that particular moment in time, the Japanese were mutilating American G.I.s and running slave brothels, while the Germans were embarked on a mission to wipe out Europes Jews and other “undesirables.”

In response, Dr. Suess and Chuck Jones made some nasty cartoons, as every college kid knows.

(Oh, and we actually killed our enemies back in those days, instead of interrogating them in Laz-E-Boy chairs and feeding them 3000 calorie a day halal meals.)

But as far as your average leftist/Muslim apologist/Canadian MP is concerned, those cartoons of Dr. Suess are worse than the Rape of Nanking. (Something few university students learn about, because, hey, those cartoons are so much cooler to bash.)

I reject the twisted notion, now taken for granted by the Establishment, that, say, publishing mean cartoons is a worse crime than using rude words to described those who murdered priests, nuns and their fellow Muslims in the name of those cartoons.

I reject the twisted notion that calling looters “looters” is “racist.”

That wondering aloud why millions of people no longer seem willing or able to fend for or better themselves is “racist.”

That making factual observations about the world around me, based on the evidence of my senses and my lived experience, is “racist.”

I believe it is my right to reject these twisted notions.

Sadly, many of those people running my country disagree.

If rejecting the language of appeasement during this conflict makes me a “racist, white supremacist whatever-the-word-is-this-week”, I will wear those appellations and others with pride.

“Racist” is the new “commie.”

I will continue to express my views, not only about belligerent, disloyal Muslims, but about everything that constitutes a threat to national security, be it the welfare state, radical ecology, the division of society into various arbitrary “victim” “communities, or official multiculturalism, “tolerance” and “diversity”.

(I also support the right to any other person, left or right, to post annoying, rude, ill-informed, provocative writing on their blog. That they don’t often extend me the same courtesy is unfortunate but I’m powerless to do much about that.)

This stance has, and will, cost me dearly. However, to do anything less would violate my conscience.

Those who dislike what they read at this blog are free to make their first visit here their last.

Let’s see how long I am free to keep writing it.

Somewhere along the line, what HRO and the LEFT have to understand is that we may have lost the last battle, but we have not lost the war and we refuse to give up.  We still have our voice and we must use it. Being PC will not achieve anything, in fact, it is why we’re where we’re at today–we didn’t stop the pussyfooting around and allowed the LEFT to make “cowards” of us–they stopped our voice, but things are such that it is the time to shout back, NO, we won’t let you put words in our mouths and we are not done fighting for ourselves and our country as our Fore Fathers’ saw this country in their hearts.

The LEFT’s Side of the Coin on Patriotism

February 21, 2009

There is always another side to the coin and that includes the LEFT–here’s one of there takes on how our “right-winged writers” are being “outrageous, scandalous and unpatriotic” regarding HRO and Congress’ valiant and brave effort to right what’s wrong with the United States. Marks Steyn rightly takes humbrage of the challenge to his patriotism at NRO Corner. 

Published in the Reporter

It is outrageous, scandalous and unpatriotic, what is being written about President Obama and a Congress that is attempting to clean up the mess left in Washington by yet another mediocre Republican, who destroyed America at home and her good name and reputation in the world.
The cases in point are two letters to the editor (“Stop the stimulus package” and “Pork and ideology: Don’t count on stimulus,” both published Feb. 13) attacking directly and indirectly the Obama administration’s strategies and Congress’ will. They do so by quoting two writers and political commentators, Amity Shales [sic–he can’t even check spelling of someone he attacks] and Mark Steyn, whose patriotic loyalty and political opinion is questionable.

 Shales still claims that the New Deal was a scheme and that President Roosevelt and the New Deal did nothing to end the Great Depression. She is probably still longing for the return of Republican Herbert Hoover, who declined to pursue legislative relief, believing that it would make people dependent on the federal government. Only toward the end of his term did he support a series of legislative solutions to the Great Depression — too little too late. On Hurricane Katrina, Shales wrote, “The fact that the country and President Bush personally were already mobilized for disaster has saved lives”; she was fired from the Financial Times for her outrageous and questionable remarks.

 As for Mark Steyn, Salon.com published an article calling Steyn a “faux warrior” who is “one of the most extremist warmongers in our country,” adding that Steyn has been “as fundamentally wrong as one can be about virtually every issue he has touched.”He appears on radio shows, such as those of right-wingers Rush Limbaugh and Hugh Hewitt. Limbaugh has publicly stated that he wants President Obama to fail. You can’t get more unpatriotic and right wing than that.

 It is apparent that the two letter writers anchor their knowledge on right-wing writings and thoughts that are fundamentally wrong; therefore, their assumptions and ideology are by inference wrong as well.
