[T]he top House Democrat with oversight of the Department of Homeland Security said in a letter to Ms. Napolitano that he was "dumbfounded" that such a report would be issued.The Federal government has just slandered the citizens of the United States of America and apparently the government is planning to violate our privacy and civil liberties. What’s more the Obama Administration is standing behind those intentions. (see here and here)
"This report appears to raise significant issues involving the privacy and civil liberties of many Americans - including war veterans," said Rep. Bennie Thompson of Mississippi, chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee, in his letter sent Tuesday night. --Audrey Hudson and Eli Lake
Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano said she was briefed before the release of the controversial intelligence assessment and that she stands by the report which was sent to law enforcement and controversially the report lists United States military veterans as a terrorist risk to the United States.
The report also defines "rightwing extremism" as including groups opposed to abortion, homosexuality, the Obama administration and illegal aliens. If Napolitano was briefed before the release of this report this alone shows an extraordinary lack of judgment while showing a gross partisanship at the same time.
The report, ‘Homeland Security’s Assessment: (U//FOUO) Rightwing Extremism: Current Economic and Political Climate Fueling Resurgence in Radicalization and Recruitment’, states that the Department of Homeland Security has no specific information that domestic rightwing terrorists are currently planning acts of violence so for all intentions and purposes that should have been the end of the subject right? (see report)
Amendment IBut it wasn’t. The report which Barack Obama appointee Napolitano says she completely stands by was a complete work of fiction and ‘what if’ scenarios that required a complete suspension of reality. Yet the report was disseminated to law agencies throughout the United States of America indicating that for the first time in U.S. history law enforcement is expected to police ideological and thought crimes under the Obama administration rather than actual criminal activity.
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.
So shocking is this preemptive preparation to violate the 1st amendment that even Democrats are attempting to distance themselves from this government sponsored discrimination against Americans. Democrat Rep. Bennie Thompson of Mississippi said that the report appeared to have raised significant issues involving the privacy and civil liberties of Americans. Yet Ms. Napolitano’s continued support of this report indicates that she is oblivious to the obvious objectionable characterizations and profiling of Americans.
Therefore, Creating Orwellian Worldview calls for the immediate firing and removal of Janet Napolitano, we also call for the firing of the author or authors of the DHLS report.
As well, Creating Orwellian Worldview calls for all persons in the Homeland Security Department that contributed to such an unbalanced and biased attack against a very large segment of our society to be fired as well.
This unprecedented government sponsored discrimination and intolerance against the groups named in the report or any segment of the U.S. population will not be tolerated. Napolitano must go!
