Homeland Security Fail
Immediately after Obama took office in January, the Department of Homeland Security seemed to take a drastic turn in policy. Rather than concerning itself with terrorism associated with known terrorist groups, it seemed to target everything BUT known terrorist groups:
DHS Report on Right Wing Extremism –
Normal people just groaned. It was that kind of groan you make when you’re a kid and the coach puts in a kid who is clueless on the court. You know you’re screwed. So, us radicals and extremist average white male conservative bloggers just kicked back and waited for the inevitable. Over the weekend, we got what I don’t think surprised much of anyone. A terrorist attack. It however, was not an average white male Christian redneck. It was, roll the drum please, a person belonging to the one domestic organization that DHS DARE not utter in their report. It was, are you ready? A Muslem.
Yup. It was a Muslem with terrorist connections, radical thoughts on the internet, and a very vocal dislike of the United States. That wouldn’t be such a big deal, but, he was in the military.
Not sure just how much more wrong a report could possibly be regarding extremism in the United States. However, last I recall, there are no Christian versions of Sharia. Some of these Muslims do practice Sharia within the United States. Some guy drove over his daughter a week or two ago. A year ago or so some guy beheaded his soon to be ex-wife.
Those acts seem kinda radical to me.
That stuff didn’t seem to bother the new DHS. They decided to target groups that have no proven history of extremism in the modern era.
Pandering to the President by targeting the people he personally dislikes will get a lot more people killed. There are extremists in every social clique. Ignoring the most dangerous, most organized, most visible, and proven history of terror is just disgusting in its sheer stupidity and bias.
