Are you an extremist or a terrorist?

dhs2

If you’re like me, you’re thinking, “I’m just an average American who doesn’t want to hurt anybody. There’s no way I’m an extremist or terrorist.”

What if I told you that according to the Obama administration, people who are dedicated to a single issue, such as opposition to abortion or immigration, are considered a possible threat. If you want to see for yourself, here’s the DHS report written in 2009 by Department of Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano.

In this report, Napolitano identified many groups and individuals whom are considered a potential threat to homeland security. Some of these groups/individuals include:

  • white supremacist and anti-government groups
  • people who reject government authority
  • people who reject federal authority in favor of state or local authority
  • people dedicated to a single issue
  • people who support the 2nd amendment
  • people who stockpile food, ammunition, or weapons
  • people who believe in anti-government conspiracy theories
  • those who express concerns about the Obama administration
  • people who fear economic collapse in the United States
  • people who are unemployed
  • disgruntled military veterans

So do you fit the description of a terrorist or extremist now? The way the document was written, I bet almost anybody you know could be considered a possible terrorist by the government, and that’s scary. If you even think, question things, stand up for an issue, or disagree with the Obama administration, you might be a bad guy. What does this tell me? I believe it indicates that the only way not to be considered a threat is to blindly follow the leader and never question a thing. Give up your rights and freedom, don’t concern yourself with the future, and make no efforts to prepare for your survival in case shit really hits the fan one day in the not-so-distant future. Hope I’m gone by that point.

What has this country come to when a 13 year old boy in middle school is questioned by the secret service for making a harmless post on facebook? The boy says he’s now more careful about what he posts online. So in other words, he now hesitates to express his thoughts and opinions out of fear. Here’s the story.

Here’s another story about a 16 year old being questioned by feds for a youtube video he created for a class project. Young people like him should be commended for investigating what is happening in the world. Instead, the government wants to do nothing but stifle these questioning minds.

    • Exactly, but that document makes it seem as though everyone should follow the beliefs of the leader and not have an opinion of their own…sort of like a dictatorship. I hope we are not heading in that direction, but reading a document like that is alarming and scary. Thank you for reading and commenting, dear 🙂
