The Real “Potential Domestic Terrorists”

Sometime in the next week or so, Accuracy in Media will publish my research report about militarization of police forces and the proliferation of terrifying and sometimes fatal SWAT raids as a routine tool of law enforcement. While some of these raids are justified, most are simply excuses to use the vast amount of military equipment being bequeathed to federal, state and local police.

In this report I discuss the Department of Homeland Security’s efforts to label tea partiers, veterans, gun owners, Christians and pretty much anyone Obama doesn’t like as “potential domestic terrorists.” You have seen the reports. You have also seen how this information percolates down to the state and local level through organizations like DHS “Fusion Centers,” which even leftwing organizations like the ACLU are up in arms about. You recall in particular the fusion center report that listed Ron Paul supporters as a profile for domestic terrorism.

DHS sees nothing wrong with this. Even more alarming is their use of the extreme leftist hate group, the Southern Poverty Law Center as consultants on right wing extremism! As I exhaustively documented in my Capital Research SPLC piece, they have been associated with and dominated by communists since their inception, and utilize the communist-inspired strategy of Partisan Tolerance – i.e. intolerance of anything other than extreme left ideology.

DHS is following a time-honored communist tactic of preemptively labeling your enemies exactly what you are, to put them on the defensive. DHS, and for that matter law enforcement at all levels, is not so stupid as to believe that the rallying grandparents of the Tea Party movement, gun owners or veterans are actual or even potential “domestic terrorists”. But by labeling political enemies that way in the very high-profile manner they do, intimidates many people and makes them afraid to speak out or even associate with identified groups and individuals, lest they find their names on some government file or be erroneously lumped in targeted groups.

The whole point of this monologue is to introduce a story by Matt Bracken. Bracken has used the Left’s tactic against them magnificently in a short story called “What I Saw at the Coup.” In this tale a White House aide relates how her fellow advisors launch a plot to murder prominent conservatives in order to permanently silence the opposition.

    I’d be proud if I made this list. I’m not guilty of treason. I believe in God, family and country. The tyrants are on the front lawn. Patriotic americans will not go away with spilling of their blood with a one way street. Bring it on, you jack-booted, goose stepping thugs. This government is fascist-communist.

    Our government is taking us down with-in by Obama and his exclusive orders and debt! The cost of illegals and refugees while Obama cuts the Military pay and benefits. He has stripped the seniors of health care by non payment. The Muslim brotherhood is taking over our government and trying to turn our country into Muslim laws.
    We have to fight this abuse of power from our government and Obama and Holder need to be tried for crimes against our country.

    I can only hope they got this right.
