A little more on the "We're scared of people who like the Constitution!"

DHS report:

But Part Two of what pisses me off is the second bullet up there, to wit:

A prominent civil rights organization reported in 2006 that “large numbers of potentially violent neo-Nazis, skinheads, and other white supremacists are now learning the art of warfare in the [U.S.] armed forces.”

And what “prominent civil rights organization” are they citing to? The Southern Poverty Legal Center, SPLC. I’m not going to go too far into SPLC, but everything you need to know about them should be summed up by this: last year the SPLC listed The American Legion as a hate group because of its position on Immigration. The American Legion even (GASP!) gave an award to Lou Dobbs. You bastards!

To the SPLC anyone who doesn’t believe that our Southern Border should be manned by Walmart greeters handing out happy stickers and water while welcoming them to our country is a racist, a nativist, a white supremacist. So, if The American Legion is a hate group, and the DHS agrees with the SPLC, seemingly enough to cite to them anyway, can we assume that we should root out all those bastards in the military who belong to The American Legion?

Isn't it just so interesting that all these people who have a problem with illegal immigration, or the Constitution being trashed, or want to remind our elected boobs in Congress just who the boss is, are now classed as 'right-wing extremist hatemongers' in an official government report? And just in time for all the April 15 tea parties? Hmmmmm?

Along witrh everything else that others have found, I also found it interesting that the document was "Prepared by the Extremism and Radicalization Branch".

I guess that means that in order to justify their paychecks, they expand their definition of terrorist to include the average, disaffected citizen who wants to return to the Constitution.

Well, they're managing to extreme and radicalize an awful lot of people, so I guess the branch(rotten as it seems to be) is doing the job...
