I Am Now Officially a Terrorist?

So says the United States Department of Homeland Security:
Homeland Security Report Lists ‘Liberty Lovers’ As Terrorists
By Paul Joseph Watson, Infowars.com

A new study funded by the Department of Homeland Security characterizes Americans who are “suspicious of centralized federal authority,” and “reverent of individual liberty” as “extreme right-wing” terrorists.

Entitled Hot Spots of Terrorism and Other Crimes in the United States, 1970-2008, the study was produced by the National Consortium for the Study of Terrorism and Responses to Terrorism at the University of Maryland. The organization was launched with the aid of DHS funding to the tune of $12 million dollars.

While largely omitting Islamic terrorism - the report fails completely to mention the 1993 World Trade Center bombing – the study focuses on Americans who hold beliefs shared by the vast majority of conservatives and libertarians and puts them in the context of radical extremism.

The report takes its definitions from a 2011 study entitled Profiles of Perpetrators of Terrorism, produced by the National Consortium for the Study of Terrorism and Responses to Terrorism, in which the following characteristics are used to identify terrorists.

- Americans who believe their “way of life” is under attack;

- Americans who are “fiercely nationalistic (as opposed to universal and international in orientation)”;

- People who consider themselves “anti-global” (presumably those who are wary of the loss of American sovereignty);

- Americans who are “suspicious of centralized federal authority”;

- Americans who are “reverent of individual liberty”;

- People who “believe in conspiracy theories that involve grave threat to national sovereignty and/or personal liberty.”

The report also lists people opposed to abortion and “groups that seek to smite the purported enemies of God and other evildoers” as terrorists. [link]
In other words, everyone in this country who is not a Democrat is now considered a domestic terrorist by Obama's government.

I suppose it's easier for Janet Napolitano to send her terrorism warriors after the likes of me - I'm in the phone book - than to actually do something about Muslims in our midst who actually commit terrorist acts.

So be it.

It seems fitting to quote the words written by some famous ... terrorists ... long ago:

"[W]ith a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes, and our sacred Honor."

Here's to the Tea Party.  May its members continue fighting the good fight.  Until that knock on the door ...

Jerry Fuhrman, domestic terrorist.  If only my Cub Scout Troop leader could see me now.
