Homeland Security labels non-Democrats as possible threat to “national
A Column by the Editor
posted April 15, 2009
COLUMN – Is South Carolina, Texas, and
over twenty other states about to hit the “watch list” for Homeland
Security? Apparently so. According to a released
memo to law enforcement agencies dated April 7, Homeland Security
said “right-wing extremists”, those who support states’ rights, local
control over federal control, anti-abortion positions, or
dissatisfaction of enforcement of immigration laws, and even military
personnel were prime targets as being potential terrorists. There was
no mention of Islamic radicals who have already carried out attacks on
the US as being terrorists. Those “incidents” are now politically
correctly called "man-made disasters."
President Obama promised “change”, and all I can say is; you got what
you voted for. Of course, Islamic lobbying groups contribute heavily to
the Democrat Party. Big surprise there.
As a country we are no longer allowed to call muslim terrorists -
terrorists. But you, by decree of the federal government are welcomed,
even encouraged, to call any conservative or individual that holds the
US Constitution at heart as a “threat” to our national security.
Excuse me if I find that not only disturbing but also chilling.
Our own federal government stating in a public memo that asserting
one’s individual Constitutional Rights, or stating that the federal
government should abide by the US Constitution, is a cause for concern
to the federal government charged with upholding that very document is
It is as if you assert your right to refuse a random search of your
home for no reason as being grounds for the search on the basis that

This goes far beyond being Orwellian, it is outright insanity.
The Democrat controlled Congress wants to shut down any opposition
against their left-wing agenda. They are trying to find end runs around
the reinstitution of the Fairness Doctrine (which is anything but
“fair”), and are seeking ways to regulate information on the internet,
and even more far-reaching oppressions of free speech.
I know that China carries a lot of our national debt, but does that
mean we must conform to their form of communist government mandates?
Evidently so if you look at what the Democrats and the Obama
administration are trying to impose. They even want to save Communist
Cuba from being returned to a republic because the embargo is finally
coming to fruition and bankrupting the fall of communism there.
Rather than celebrate the fall of a communist dictatorship, the Obama
administration wants to allow US dollars being sent to Communist Cuba
to save it from its own demise.
I may have fallen off the banana boat, but I sure didn’t fall on my
As thousands of rallies take place today to oppose the current
direction of the federal government in “Tea Parties” and “Fair Tax
Rallies”, each and every citizen that attends such events will no doubt
be targeted by the very government that is to protect asserting the
right to protest for protesting.
You are now the enemy, not the terrorists.
Perhaps this is the true “civil rights” issue of the 21st Century.
