Dept. of Homeland Security Report: Patriotic Americans A Danger

-By Warner Todd Huston

Once again we get left-wingers advising government officials that fanatical Islamists and other foreign terrorists are just as bad as patriotic Americans.

A new report titled, “Understanding Law Enforcement Intelligence Processes,” was penned by a cadre of professors at the University of Maryland advising the Department of Homeland Security that foreign threats are just as bad as people who love the Constitution, people who want to observe their Second Amendment rights, and people who love the flag and think America is a great nation.

Yes, these so-called educators are paid with your tax dollars to spread alarm and hate for our own citizens.

The report is a guide for “law enforcement” officials on how to create new intelligence practices.

Before I outline that, though, let’s be done with this faux term “law enforcement.” Our policing personnel do not “enforce” the law. It is un-Constitutional (and the Supreme Court has said so several times) for police to pro-actively “enforce” any law. The police are not there to protect you or prevent crime in any way but by the happenstance of their presence scaring criminals from their acts. The police have but two jobs. To arrive after a crime was committed and take someone into custody and to levy fines on citizens to fatten the bank accounts of the government.

That settled, the report notes that in recent years the intelligence situation has changed because the threats to federal and local communities are always evolving and goes on to outline just who “law enforcement” officials should be worried about.

“Law enforcement is much more concerned about sovereign citizens, Islamic extremists, and militia/patriot group members compared to the fringe groups of the far right, including Christian Identity believers, reconstructed traditionalists (i.e., Odinists), idiosyncratic sectarians (i.e., survivalists), and members of doomsday cults,” the report says.

Notice that these “professors” are saying that “sovereign citizens,” i.e. people who are concerned about U.S. sovereignty and the U.S. Constitution, are a dangerous enemy, as dangerous as Islamic extremists.

These people are called “terrorists” even though nearly no actual acts of violence have ever been committed by people the government has identified as members of the “sovereign citizens” movement. In fact, most of these people are just tax protesters.

But seeing as how greedy our government is for our money, I guess it makes sense that the FBI and their ilk imagine that tax protestors are just as bad as Osama bin Laden!

These pointy-headed educators are also saying anyone in a so-called militia or patriot group is a terrorist…. the latter would include tea party groups, folks.Don’t mistake this fact. If you are a patriotic American Obama and his regime view you as a threat.

Anyway, this isn’t the first time that Obama’s Department of Homeland Security has decided that patriotic Americans are more dangerous than Islam-o-nazis. It has been a constant theme of this regime. Back in 2009 and 2012 DHS essentially claimed that patriots and former members of our own military are “dangerous.”

My fellow Americans we have arrived at a time when our government thinks we are the enemy and they are making plans to take us out.
