    Federal agency warns of radicals on right

    Federal agency warns of radicals on right
    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.



    Federal agency warns of radicals on right - Washington Times

    I participate in "right wing extremism" because I belong to National Right to Life? --a single issue group opposed to abortion-- ...And Homeland Security "'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.'"

    In other words, gather information on people like me? What country do we live in?

    Jackboots always come in matched pairs, a left boot and a right boot.

    Homeland Security Warns of Rise in Right-Wing Extremism

    Homeland Security Warns of Rise in Right-Wing Extremism

    Homeland Security Warns of Rise in Right-Wing Extremism - First 100 Days of Presidency - Politics FOXNews.com


    "Right-wing extremists have capitalized on the election of the first African American president, and are focusing their efforts to recruit new members, mobilize existing supporters and broaden their scope and appeal through propaganda, but they have not yet turned to attack planning," the assessment reads.

    "The current economic and political climate has some similarities to the 1990s when right-wing extremism experienced a resurgence fueled largely by an economic recession, criticism about the outsourcing of jobs and the perceived threat to U.S. power and sovereignty by other foreign powers.," it continues.

    The report also suggests that returning veterans are attractive recruits for right-wing groups looking for "combat skills and experience" so as to boost their "violent capabilities." It adds that new restrictions on gun ownership and the difficulty of veterans to reintegrate into their communities "could lead to the potential emergence of terrorist groups or lone wolf extremists capable of carrying out violent attacks."



    So let me get this straight, Military people are people that need to be watched?


    This is pathetic. Anyone who does not agree with Obama, seems to be an "extremist" these days.

    They attacked the tea parties, and now they are suggesting Vets are attracted to right wing "Extremist" groups?


    If the Obama admin keeps up with this rhetoric, He might just create the reality he is ralling against.

    The Department of Homeland Security needs to be disbanded.

    I wouldn't argue with that.

    The link no longer works for some reason. Regardless, I saw a similar story the other day on CNN and they had pictures of nazi skinheads which leads me to believe that they are referring to them as the extremists as opposed to people who are just simply right wing. It would certainly make sense that there is a rise in hate groups like that who do allign themselves with a right wing ideology, though their views obviously are far more extreme than the typical right-winger.

    And military people are still people and can be susceptible to these types of groups. I don't think that they are indicating that they need to be watched though.

    It only gets better. Obama has appointed an LA Times reporter as an advisor to the Pentagon:

    Obama Appointee Suggests Radical Plan for Newspaper Bailout - Presidential Politics | Political News - FOXNews.com

    A columnist for four years at the Times, Brooks this week joined the office of the undersecretary of Defense for policy, the principal adviser to the Pentagon's top brass. She retains her post as a professor at the Georgetown University Law Center and during the Clinton administration served as a senior adviser to the State Department.

    Seems Obama might be a bit paranoid and wants an ear & eyes gal in the Pentagon snooping around.

    Just guessing though...

    That was a report issued by the MIAC (Missouri Information Analysis Center). What does that have to do with the Dept. of Homeland Security? I know a lot of anti-Obama people would like to interpret this as an attack on right wingers but they used the word extremists. What reason do you have other than a report from the MIAC to believe that they are targetting typical right wing people and not going after groups like neo-nazis and KKK?
