Right Wing Extremists ?

An interesting document is making its way around the Internet from the Department of Homeland Security. This document purports to have been something called the Extremism and Radicalization, Homeland Environment Threat Analysis Division, coordinated with the FBI. If accurate, it says a lot, not about the group that it hopes to portray in disrepute; but about the state of the Department of Homeland Security in the US.  

It begins by saying:  
The DHS/Office of Intelligence and Analysis (I&A) has no specific information that domestic right wing terrorists are currently planning acts of violence, but right wing extremists may be gaining new recruits by playing on their fears about several emergent issues.  

For any of us used to seeing such reports in regards to global warming, the key word here is may. There is no proof or direct account of such actions taking place, but that should not prevent law enforcement from being on the alert based on the charges being laid. The report then goes on to blame the economy, potential gun restriction legislation, free trade agreements, illegal immigration, abortion, and same-sex marriage on these anti-government groups; making them ripe for violent action. They even cite disgruntled returning Middle East veterans as a threat because of their combat skills; and they further cite the example of the mentally deranged individual who killed three police officers in Pittsburgh as an example of the violent behavior such people are capable of.  

Prominent in all of this is mention of course, the "historic" election of election of Barack Obama, the first African American president. Quite frankly, this document is either the lousiest piece of intelligence done since the CIA in the days leading up to the Iraq war, or it is a wonderfully crafted hoax designed to stir up "right wing" anti-government sentiment. 

I must add that the timing of the release of these documents on the days leading up to the tax tea parties occur is more than a little suspicious. Might this be something trumped up by left wing extremists? For it was those left wing extremists who, in the days leading up to the last presidential election, committed numerous demonstrations (sometimes violent) in the name of their causes. 

It is the left wing Sierra Club who distributes misinformation on the environment, PETA who throws blood on those wearing fur coats, and ACORN who perpetrates voter fraud, while the right wing stands idly by, attempting to play by the rules. It was the Republican candidate who strictly followed his campaign pledge to release all campaign contributor information while the Democratic reformer refused to disclose any such information.  

Do not let your hackles be raised on the day before those who choose to peacefully gather to try and return this country to its proper direction. Do not let yourself be fooled or incited by the tone or accusations of this document, real or fake. Do not allow the intent of this classic example of non-violent protest be painted as something other than it is meant to be. 

Update 

 It appears that the document in question is in fact genuine. Wow, I guess that one should never underestimate the government's ability or propensity for (using a phrase made famous by our own Mayor Carlton S Finkbeiner) "half-truths, mistruths, and outright lies". It should likewise be pointed out that if this kind of information were being passed about any other group other than Conservatives in this country, that it would be considered government sponsored hate speech.

I am trying.....but.... OMG!!!!!!! It gets harder and harder, doesn't it? They say lies, and we are supposed to acknowledge it????? America as I have known it pretty much does not exist anymore...I'm so devastated to say that....... but I think that's what the left wants...Many do not even know it because they have been fooled...history is once again doomed to repeat itself...to the utter destruction of the greatest country on earth at the moment...

WT,

All we can do is hold true to our principles and hope the "Tea Parties" are the beginning of something good.

This can be stopped, diverted, changed before it's too late.
