Enemy List – I’m On it, Are You?

In the name of making a utopia, The Left has decided to squash opposition. How are they going to do that? Well, silence all opposing speech by labeling it rightwing extremism. Of course, how silly of me. Of course we would all get along if we just all towed-line and never agreed.

Sounds kind of like some of the dictatorships of past? You don’t like what we say or do? Well, then we are just going to shoot you in the head of do some sort of medical experiment on you or work you until you die. That way, with you removed, we can all can live happily. Psht…

Well, here is the pudding. Eat it up.  The DHS has made a draft of a document to fight this “rightwing extremist” conversation and organization. Some piece of the document below.

Rightwing extremism in the United States can be broadly divided into those groups, movements, and adherents that are primarily hate-oriented (based on hatred of particular religious, racial or ethnic groups), and those that are mainly antigovernment, rejecting federal authority in favor of state or local authority, or rejecting government authority entirely. It may include groups and individuals that are dedicated to a single issue, such as opposition to abortion or immigration.

I am anti-government (or at least, uber-small government), so I suspect that I would be grouped into this definition. I also believe in the power of the States too, so I also meet that requirement too. And of course I am pro-life, so that is three strikes against me. I am also a member of 9-12 Project and Campaign for Liberty, both of which are primarily small-government groups. I also am a supporter of Ron Paul, one of the few politicians that is not afraid of talking about reducing the size of government. And worse yet, I am a member of Lost Horizons, the group that believes in only paying taxes as the Constitution dictates! It looks like there is no denying that I am a rightwing extremist here!

(U//LES) Rightwing extremists are harnessing this historical election as a recruitment tool. Many rightwing extremists are antagonistic toward the new presidential administration and its perceived stance on a range of issues, including immigration and citizenship, the expansion of social programs to minorities, and restrictions on firearms ownership and use. Rightwing extremists are increasingly galvanized by these concerns and leverage them as drivers for recruitment. From the 2008 election timeframe to the present, rightwing extremists have capitalized on related racial and political prejudices in expanded propaganda campaigns, thereby reaching out to a wider audience of potential sympathizers.

I am against the President and his stance on immigration and I believe that every American has the ability to make life work. It is a disgrace to give people handouts due to a “group” that they belong to – to me it is akin to saying “we don’t believe you can make it because you are XYZ, so here is some $$$.” I also believe strongly in the 2nd Amendment. It was the first time in the history of the world that a government guaranteed the right for its citizens to bear arms. Why did the Founding Fathers do this – so we would be guaranteed the right to defend our lives, liberties, and freedoms should someone try to come take them. Again, I squarely meet this definition of what a rightwing extremist is.

(U) Exploiting Economic Downturn

(U//FOUO) Rightwing extremist chatter on the Internet continues to focus on the economy, the perceived loss of U.S. jobs in the manufacturing and construction sectors, and home foreclosures. Anti-Semitic extremists attribute these losses to a deliberate conspiracy conducted by a cabal of Jewish “financial elites.” These “accusatory” tactics are employed to draw new recruits into rightwing extremist groups and further radicalize those already subscribing to extremist beliefs. DHS/I&A assesses this trend is likely to accelerate if the economy is perceived to worsen.

I’ve never said that anything about Jewish Elites, but I do think that the only people in the world that can say “I am in deep debt, but let’s spend more money to get us out of debt (read: bailouts)” are the Elites. But regardless of whether or not they are true Elites, they still spend money like it isn’t theirs. Wait… it isn’t theirs. Again, I probably fall into this category as well.

(U) Disgruntled Military Veterans

(U//FOUO) DHS/I&A assesses that rightwing extremists will attempt to recruit and radicalize returning veterans in order to exploit their skills and knowledge derived from military training and combat. These skills and knowledge have the potential to boost the capabilities of extremists—including lone wolves or small terrorist cells—to carry out violence. The willingness of a small percentage of military personnel to join extremist groups during the 1990s because they were disgruntled, disillusioned, or suffering from the psychological effects of war is being replicated today.

If a Veteran comes home and joins up, it is because they were disgruntled before they left. Just because you exit the military doesn’t mean that you are instantly pissed off. However, I know that some of us that were in the military (myself included) have been discharged and now look back and feel that they were not doing exactly what they were thought they were doing – defending this country and her Constitution.

(NAME), do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic;

I find it interesting that the makers of this oath said, “foreign and domestic.” Logically, one would think that invaders would be charging you on the battlefield – not be behind you giving orders. But someone out there had the insight that a destroyer of the Constitution may very well be domestic… and I think that is by far the greatest fear of mine that we are destroying the Constitution from within.

    The greater the difficulty overcome, the greater the honor. Perhaps when our history is written, having been on Obama’s enemy list will be a badge of honor.

    The writers of the Constitution put guarantees in to the document in anticipation of leaders, such as we have now in the White House and Congress. Unfortunately it is only a piece of paper. What gives it strength is our respect and willingness to follow it. The left constantly corrupts it. Putting in rights that were never there, such as abortion and soon same sex marriage, then they weaken the rights that are really in there such as gun rights.
    How about multiple partner marriages or marriages with children? How about Constitutional rights for animals?

    Just ignore what is written and interpret what ever you empathize with. How can the Supreme court make a ruling that Carbon Dioxide is a pollutant? Where is that in the Constitution? If Carbon Dioxide is a pollutant, then how can the government inject it in to the ground for carbon sequestering?

    Lets talk about free speech. The Democrats wanted to regulate Talk Radio because it opposes them. This is a free speech issue. They wanted to get around that by labeling anti Obama speech as pornography. Now they are using the recent shootings to label opposition views as Hate Speech that incited the violence.

    The Constitution is only a piece of paper. If we do not defend it from Obama and his flunkies, it won’t be worth the paper. Obama will try to do to our rights as he is doing to our currency. He will inflate the number of rights so that they all conflict with one another, and each individual right loses it’s value.

"We are apt to shut our eyes against a painful truth... For my part, I am willing to know the whole truth; to know the worst; and to provide for it." - Patrick Henry

"Politicians and diapers both need to be changed, and for the same reason." - Anonymous

"Right is right, even if everyone is against it, and wrong is wrong, even if everyone is for it." - William Penn

"Naturally the common people don't want war; neither in Russia, nor in England, nor in America, nor in Germany. That is understood. But after all, it is the leaders of the country who determine policy, and it is always a simple matter to drag the people along, whether it is a democracy, or a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship. Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is to tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same in any country" - Hermann Goering

"I know that nothing good lives in me, that is, in my sinful nature. For I have the desire to do what is good, but I cannot carry it out. For what I do is not the good I want to do; no, the evil I do not want to do this I keep on doing." - Romans 7:18-19

"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover." - Mark Twain
