The Hutaree militiaJust over one year ago, Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano was under fire for a report issued by her agency that warned of the risk posed by right-wing extremist groups in America. The report was intended to "provide situational awareness to state, local and tribal law enforcement agencies on the phenomenon and trends of violent radicalization in the United States" Napolitano explained in a press release
At the time, conservatives skewered Napolitano. Rush Limbaugh denounced the report as "a genuine hit job.”
Fast forward one year to March 2010 and the report looks more like a remarkably accurate prediction than a "hit job." The violent reaction to health care reform by right wing extremists and the arrest of the Hutaree militia are more than enough to vindicate Napolitano. It makes you shudder to think how bad things will be next year at this time.
the above written article and cartoon are the works of mike thompson and were taken directly from the detroit free press web site. by looking at other works by mike, it is easy to tell he is all the way in the tank for obama.
as if any of us needed any further proof that the MSM is completely in bed with the dems. which right wing extremists have violently reacted to health care reform, mike? can you name them? can you site specific incidents, in which conclusive evidence exists, showing right wingers have done anything?
spitting on black congressmen? in the day of the camera phone, NO footage is available of this incident. rocks thrown through office windows? no arrest made. cut propane lines? no leads. and mike, just like what happened in denver at the local DNC office during the campaign, some of your own people could be responsible for the above acts.
i want to make something perfectly clear here and now. i do not support the hutaree militia. if they are found guilty by a jury of their peers, they should be punished to the fullest extent of the law. but how's about not lumping all of us together, who oppose obama's bullshit, as right wing extremists mike?
oh, and as long as i have your attention, is your paper going to bitch and moan as loudly about the fbi methods of infiltrating the huratees, as it continues to do in regards to luqman abdullah's mosque? probably not.
