As I read this article I tried to think of who the author was talking about . Who is the white supremacist group that is right wing? The KKK was a Southern Democrat group, so would it be the modern “skin heads” ? How do they know which party skin heads belong to? An anti_abortion bomber would be one man, not a group. Who are the “violent militiamen? Just curious as to what the lefties here think about it.

WASHINGTON (AP) - The Homeland Security Department is focusing on possible terror threats from radical environmental and animal rights activists without also examining risks that might be posed by right-wing extremists, House Democrats said Tuesday.
A recent internal Homeland Security document lists the Animal Liberation Front and the Earth Liberation Front with a few Islamic groups that could potentially support al-Qaida as domestic terror threats.
The document does not address threats posed by white supremacists, violent militiamen, anti-abortion bombers and other extremists that Rep. Bennie G. Thompson, D-Miss., called "right-wing hate groups."
ALF and ELF "are the left-leaning groups that they identified," said Thompson, the top Democrat on the House Homeland Security Committee. "But they absolutely left out any of the other groups."
"If your responsibility is to protect the homeland from these domestic terrorists, then you have an obligation to identify all of them - not just some of them," Thompson said.
Homeland Security spokesman Brian Roehrkasse said the internal document - which was not meant for public distribution - identifies only general categories of threats and vulnerabilities, and is not meant to be a comprehensive list.
"Other classified threat and vulnerability assessments that guide our day-to-day operations and planning are more specific and identify more detailed information," Roehrkasse said.
Thompson said he reminded Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff of threats by right-wing groups in a letter sent to the department Tuesday - the 10th anniversary of the Oklahoma City bombing. That attack, which killed 168 people, marks the worst act of domestic terrorism on U.S. soil.
ALF and ELF are accused by the FBI of committing hundreds of acts of arson or other attacks on property in the United States, causing millions of dollars in damages. None of their attacks, however, have caused human deaths.

Sure, the Homeland Security Department should look more at white supremicists and "right wing terrorists," all five of them.

Come on, this piece is a classic example of the kind of bogus distraction techniques used by the left to make us think average Joe Christians are the real threat, while the terrorists they constantly defend are just being picked on.

This article's feeble attempt to manufacture outrage about the Homeland Security Department frying the biggest fish first is like acting outraged that Joe McCarthy was too consumed with rooting out Communists to focus on our real enemy-Puerto Rican nationalists. And by the way, most of the people McCarthy accused have, in recent years, been proven to be traitors he called them. (Soviet cables released in the 1990s mention many of these people by name as spies/informants). Good thing the media erroneously branded him a symbol of paranoia.


And yes, don't ever let anyone tell you that Republicans have the history of intolerance:

-Who said, "Segregation now, segregation forever!" when refusing to let a REPUBLICAN president-Eisenhower integrate the schools? A DEMOCRAT named George Wallace.

-Who is the only member of the federal government to be a former Klansman? A DEMOCRAT named, Robert Byrd.

-Who liberated the slaves from the Democrats? A Republican named, Abe Lincoln.

Democrats started out wrong on race...

And once they began condescendingly patting blacks on their heads and forcing them into jobs they were not qualified for to reinforce how inferior DEMOCRATS think blacks are, they managed to STAY wrong on race, while seemingly changing who they were rooting for.

The FBI watches racial groups such as the National Alliance, David Duke's European-American Unity and Rights organization, and Stormfront.org (the world's largest White racial discussion forum). Though these groups do support extreme intollerance towards non-heterosexual Whites, they don't advocate illegal activity. If these guys do end up getting censored by the government, I would predict a slippery slope where criticizing homosexuals and non-Christians would then be outlawed. Claims will be made that criticizing homosexuals is a terrorist act that leads to terroristic violence against American homosexuals.

Anyway, it all comes down to who supports the First Amendment. We are always telling the rest of the world we are superior because we are free, but if we stop supporting the Bill of Rights, we then cannot make that claim.

Regards.
