Right wing extremists

It would appear that our government considers us - Leece and me - to be right wing extremists who bear considerable watching.

That probably sounds like rampant paranoia, but unfortunately, it is not. Consider:

We are very concerned about the economy. We believe in less federal government. We believe in lower federal spending. We think that the creation of massive tax burdens for the future borders on the criminally negligent, if not downright insanity. We are Christian, or at least in my case aspiring Christian, generally pro-life, unquestionably pro-Second Amendment, pro-border control and pro-states' rights. I am an increasingly disgruntled vet. Now, according to our beloved Federal government, Leece and I, along with our returning servicemen and servicewomen, and other concerned citizens (see the Tea Parties), are possible "right-wing extremists" to be watched.

That's from the Department of Homeland Defense's new study on right wing extremism, which has people pinging off the walls. Not the least of these people is Judge Napolitano - no relation to Janet of DHS secretarial fame - who was downright scathing about it this morning.

But wait! There's more:

The government considers you a terrorist threat if you oppose abortion, own a gun or are a returning war veteran.

That's what House Judiciary Committee Ranking Member Lamar Smith, R-Texas, said Wednesday in response to a Department of Homeland Security report warning of the rise of right-wing extremist groups.

Smith, who said the report on "right-wing extremism" amounts to "political profiling," said that DHS is "using people's political views to assess an individual's susceptibility to terror recruitment." He joins a growing chorus of protest from irate conservative groups that are protesting the report's findings.

This came out on concurrently with the Tea Parties. Is it supposed to be some kind of threat? Some kind of intimidation? Speak out against the inane policies of The Obamessiah and you'll be put on a watch list?

Protest grows over report on right-wing radicalization

There is a link in that article from which you can download the whole report, which looks like it was put together by some of Obama's least intelligent campaign staffers, the ones with the MTV and teenager mindsets.

Speaking of which, Press Secretary "Giggles" Gibbs had this to say today about the Tea Parties:

"If anybody involved looks at the facts, they'll find out that this president promised and this president delivered on putting more money back into the pockets of hardworking Americans, cut their taxes, made it more affordable to buy a home, made it more affordable to send their kids to go to college, provided tax incentives for businesses to create jobs through things like clean energy," Gibbs told reporters during an afternoon press conference.

"I'll let the organizers of whatever these are speak to their motivations," he said.

Well, "Giggles", so far, Obama hasn't done any of that. The extra 8 bux a week we're seeing as government largesse won't even buy us lunch at Carl's Jr. The rest of it is still a pipe dream, probably the result of smoking too much of that Hopium.

As for 'whatever these are', try reading this guy's sign:


That's what we call a "clue", Giggles. Keep on playing stupid, or keep on ridiculing it, and see if it doesn't bite you, your boss, and the Democratic Party right on the party mascot next time around.
