The Department of Homeland Security continues to be busy. Unfortunately, it isn’t clear that busy activity by the Department of Homeland Security actually contributes much to homeland security in America.
The same Homeland Security Department office that categorized veterans as potential terrorists issued an earlier report that defined dozens of “extremists” ranging from black power activists to abortion foes. The report was nixed within hours and recalled from state and local law enforcement officials.
Whites and blacks, Christians and Jews, Cubans and Mexicans, along with tax-hating Americans were among several political leanings listed in the “Domestic Extremism Lexicon” that came out of the Office of Intelligence and Analysis (I&A) in late March.
Quick question: is there a greater danger of terrorism committed by Islamic jihadists or anti-abortion activists? It might be best not to ask DHS.
