So I decided I'll just "borrow" a post from Moonbattery, who has sifted through and found the most ridiculous clauses of this report. Charles Johnson should be ashamed of him self for first picking side (against what deems right wing extremism by the media) - and sticking to his guns regardless of reality. So many people practicably worshiped him (not me), and are now just extremely disappointed. Read the following and decide for your self, how can you defend anyone who writes such a report (even if it is taken back).
Moonbattery: The Domestic Extremism LexiconIn case you're wondering how the Department of Homeland Security spends the mountains of tax money shoveled into it — since our rulers clearly have no interest in defending the border or inconveniencing Islamic terrorists — have a look at the new supplement to the Newspeak dictionary entitled the Domestic Extremism Lexicon. This document is a useful accompaniment to Crappy Nappy Napolitano's study on the potential terror threat of anyone whose views fall to the right of Sean Penn's, and indispensible to aspiring apparatchiks who want to improve their vocabularies. A few sample terms:
alternative media: A term used to describe various information sources that provide a forum for interpretations of events and issues that differ radically from those presented in mass media products and outlets.
Simply by listening to talk radio or reading Moonbattery.com, you too could be taking part in domestic extremism. No wonder the government abandoned the War on Terror to focus on this far more prevalent threat.
antiabortion extremism: A movement of groups or individuals who are virulently antiabortion and advocate violence against providers of abortion-related services, their employees, and their facilities. Some cite various racist and anti-Semitic beliefs to justify their criminal activities.
I'll bet you didn't know that opposition to abortion is anti-Semitic. You see how much our wise government can teach us?
anti-immigration extremism: A movement of groups or individuals who are vehemently opposed to illegal immigration, particularly along the U.S. southwest border with Mexico, and who have been known to advocate or engage in criminal activity and plot acts of violence and terrorism to advance their extremist goals.
There follows a long list of examples. Just kidding; no examples exist.
This one is really scary:
patriot movement: A term used by rightwing extremists to link their beliefs to those commonly associated with the American Revolution.
Over 1 million of these fiends openly paraded their right-wing views just last Tax Day. Good thing Jane-O is here to protect the public with her various documents.
Shawarma Mayor Says:
So what does it make Jews who write/read blogs, oppose abortions (in last trimester - just as the supreme justice decided), believe immigration should be handled smoothly through legal processes and laws ought to be enforced (but changed, they are draconian), and believe in the constitution as what made the USA the greatest country on earth?
According to the new DHS: Extremist Radicals, Anti-Semitic, Violent against people of Mexican origin, mascaraing as those of who love the USA. Oh, yea, who happen to be Jewish. Makes sense, doesn't it?!
Perhaps in Bizarro world.
Reason #343,568 I write under a pen name. It seems the head of DHS would consider this blog to be the same awkward animal described above. When the thought police would care to interrogate me in their dungeons I'd like to state the following: Give me liberty or give me...
