In October, just like they’ve done everything else, without anyone agreeing or knowing about it, (Obamacare for example), the
Department of Justice
created a new position to greater control, their definition, of the threat the government says it faces from “domestic” extremists.
What exactly are
Is that like a maid that goes crazy while baby sitting and vandalizes your home? Not hardly…
According to the governments
Department of Justice,
“Homegrown violent extremists” can be motivated by any viewpoint on the full spectrum of hate, “anti-government views, racism, bigotry, anarchy and other despicable beliefs.”
Now, “anti-government” is a despicable belief? In other words, anything they dictate to you that you refuse to agree with!
This is what John Carlin, who is in charge of Department of Justice’s national security division, told a seminar audience on terrorism at George Washington University. The event was hosted by the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC).
Just who are they exactly? The Southern Poverty Law Center is an American nonprofit legal advocacy organization specializing in civil rights and public interest litigation, with a $303 million dollar endowment!
Carlin said government and law enforcement now consider individuals and groups “opposed to the authority of the state” to be the “top terrorism concern,” a threat that overshadows Muslim extremism.
His remark equating “anarchy” as “despicable,” reveals that the government considers any opposition to the state to be terrorism.
Carlin said “Based on our briefings, we very much think that the domestic terrorism threat is “a real and present threat” that demands to be addressed in new, creative ways,” adding that the “Southern Poverty Law Center and other groups in this space are very important.”
It looks like the Southern Poverty Law Center is simply another division of the federal government.
Stewart Rhodes of the Oath Keepers uncovered a document that lists Richard Cohen as a member of the Homeland Security Advisory Council. Ironically, Cohen is also the president and CEO of the Southern Poverty Law Center.
What do they actually do? They make recommendations on training and how to use all of the local resources—police, social services, media etc., to fight “extremism.”
The SPLC is now writing reports naming “constitutionalists” as possible terrorists. Rhodes said, “Now the mask is off and it’s in your face.”
In April 2009, the Department of Homeland Security produced a document, “Right-Wing Extremism:” where they characterized patriot political groups that reject “federal authority in favor of state or local authority, or reject government authority entirely” as domestic terrorists.
Reuters reported Department of Justice officials will ask Congress for a statute “to toughen the fight against anti-government extremists.”
A similar law is currently used to prosecute individuals accused of providing “material support” for Muslim terrorist groups currently on the State Department’s list of international terrorist organizations.
The PATRIOT Act codifies material support as “distributing literature, political advocacy and donating money to groups and individuals” the government considers terrorists.
Domestic Terrorism within the United States:
An individual does not need to be involved in violence to be prosecuted. Moreover, the government does not need to “show that any specific act of terrorism has taken place, or is being planned, or even that a defendant intended any further terrorism,” according to an ACLU document written.
A former counter terrorism expert at the Department of Homeland Security told Reuters, “A different standard is being applied to Muslims than to other people.”
Carlin said his team at the Department of Justice is taking a “thoughtful look at the nature and scope of the domestic terrorism threat” and helping to analyze “potential legal improvements and enhancements to better combat those threats.”
Domestic Terrorist List:
History of Domestic Terrorism:
Last week, Cliven Bundy and four others were indicted by a federal grand jury in Nevada on charges related to the 2014 “standoff”at the Bundy ranch.
The charges include: “conspiracy to commit an offense against the United States, conspiracy to impede or injure a federal officer, weapon use and possession, assault on a federal officer, threatening a federal law enforcement officer, obstruction, extortion to interfere with commerce, and interstate travel in aid of extortion.” (Remember how the government felt justified by shooting down in cold blood, Lavoy Finicum while stopping him and several others from attending a town meeting in the area.)
Nevada Democrat Senator Harry Reid called the Bundy family patriarch a “domestic terrorist.”
We know Harry Reid to be one of the staunchest supporters of total government control, siding with Obama on every issue to control people’s lives even more.
The government considers the act of civil disobedience in Nevada to be a violent act.
Nevada FBI Special Agent in Charge Laura Bucheit said, “This indictment sends a resounding message to those who wish to participate in violent acts, that our resolve to pursue them and enforce the law remains unwavering.”
If the Department of Justice gets their way and are permitted to use the “material support statute” against non-violent constitutionalists, patriot groups and those rejecting the authority of the state over the individual, supporters of almost every patriotic/constitutional journalist, broadcaster and individual, characterized by the Southern Poverty Law Center as extremist—may eventually be prosecuted as terrorists.
