You know the profile: White conservative male. Strong family values. Supports the Second Amendment. Lives in a nice neighborhood. Friendly guy. Attends church on a regular basis. Kids in Little League.
Harmless, you say? Hardly.
As far as the LA Times is concerned, the guy I just described is more dangerous than an “international terrorist” and should be closely monitored – even if the Department of Homeland Security must divert funds from the search for al Qaeda and other terrorists to do so. Welcome to Crazy Town.
According to an op-ed in the Los Angeles Times, conservative white men who support the Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms are worse than international terrorists and need to be monitored by the federal government.
The op-ed, written after the Southern Poverty Law Center demanded the Justice Department and the Department of Homeland Security “crack down on Americans expressing opposition to an increasingly tyrannical federal government,” claims there are “cells of angry men in the United States preparing for combat with the U.S. government.”
It gets even better:
“They are usually heavily armed, blinded by an intractable hatred, often motivated by religious zeal. They are white, right-wing Americans, nearly all with an obsessive attachment to guns, who may represent a greater danger to the lives of American civilians than international terrorists.”
And these incredible imbeciles wonder why we call them loons.
To be “fair,” as noted by Kurt Nimmo at Infowars, the editorial board of the Times stopped short of calling for mass internment of hateful white people in concentration camps, recommending instead:
“These groups should be closely monitored, with resources adequate to the task, even if it means shifting some homeland security money from the hunt for foreign terrorists.”
The scary part is, these left-wing jackasses are serious. I mean, this is not your typical, disingenuous, Obama-style political rhetoric; these people really believe this twisted crap. Even scarier, they continually turn a blind eye to the incendiary behavior of, and explicit threats from, the New Black Panthers Party, for example, whose leaders regularly call for “race war” against “honkies,” “crackers” and “pigs.”
Oh – wait – it would be racist to call for federal monitoring of a black organization – never mind.
As I said yesterday, while I don’t believe in the grand conspiracies envisioned by the NWO, one-world-government fanatics, I do believe that academia, labor unions and the left-wing media – among others – are working in concert in a hellbent effort to destroy freedom and liberty in this country.
The “crackdown” on “white, right-wing Americans” by the Department of Homeland Security would be just one step in the process. Besides, what is DHS going to do with those 1.2 billion rounds of ammunition and armored personnel carriers, anyway? Would be a shame to let them to go to waste.
