    Homeland Security Warns of Rise in Right-Wing Extremism

    An intelligence assessment released to law enforcement last week claims news of recession, the election of an African American president, rumors of new gun restrictions and the inability of veterans to reintegrate create fertile ground for radicalizing and recruiting right-wing extremists

    The Department of Homeland Security is warning law enforcement agencies that recent news is helping "right-wing extremist groups" recruit new members and could lead to violence, and warns about the possible recruitment and radicalization of returning veterans. 

    The report, issued last week, is part of an ongoing review of extremists on both ends of the political spectrum.

    The latest assessment by DHS' Office of Intelligence and Analysis found no specific information that domestic right-wing terrorists are currently planning acts of violence, but right-wing extremists may be gaining new recruits by playing on fears about the recession and the election of the first African American president. The office called them "unique drivers for right-wing radicalization and recruitment."

    "Right-wing extremists have capitalized on the election of the first African American president, and are focusing their efforts to recruit new members, mobilize existing supporters and broaden their scope and appeal through propaganda, but they have not yet turned to attack planning," the assessment reads. 

    "The current economic and political climate has some similarities to the 1990s when right-wing extremism experienced a resurgence fueled largely by an economic recession, criticism about the outsourcing of jobs and the perceived threat to U.S. power and sovereignty by other foreign powers.," it continues.

    The report also suggests that returning veterans are attractive recruits for right-wing groups looking for "combat skills and experience" so as to boost their "violent capabilities." It adds that new restrictions on gun ownership and the difficulty of veterans to reintegrate into their communities "could lead to the potential emergence of terrorist groups or lone wolf extremists capable of carrying out violent attacks."

    "Proposed imposition of firearms restrictions and weapons bans likely would attract new members into the ranks of right-wing extremist groups ... The high volume of purchases and stockpiling of weapons and ammunition by right-wing extremists in anticipation of restrictions and bans in some parts of the country continue to be a primary concern to law enforcement," the report says.

    The assessment notes that right-wing recruitment grew in the 1990s but subsided after increased scrutiny by the government following the 1995 Oklahoma City bombings. 

    It does state that in 2009 "threats from white supremacist and violent antigovernment groups ... have been largely rhetorical and have not indicated plans to carry out violent acts." 

    "Nevertheless, the consequences of a prolonged economic downturn-including real estate foreclosures, unemployment, and an inability to obtain credit-could create a fertile recruiting environment for right-wing extremists and even result in confrontations between such groups and government authorities similar to those in the past," reads a key finding in the assessment. 

    DHS spokeswoman Sara Kuban said the April 7 assessment is one in an ongoing series published by DHS "to facilitate a greater understanding of radicalization in the United States."

    "DHS has no specific information that domestic right-wing terrorists are currently planning acts of violence, but right-wing extremists may be gaining new recruitments by playing on their fears about several emerging issues," Kuban said. 

    But some critics have said the DHS is equating conservative views to right-wing terrorism, but a DHS official countered that earlier this year, the department issued a mirror intelligence assessment of left-wing extremist groups.

    "This is the job of DHS, to assess what is happening in this country, with regard to homegrown terrorism, and determine whether it's an actual threat or not, and that's what these assessments do. This is nothing unusual. These assessments are done all the time. This is about awareness," the official told FOX News on Monday.

    FOX News has obtained a copy of the assessment, dated Jan. 26 and titled "Left-wing Extremists Likely to Increase Use of Cyberattacks Over the Coming Decade." It concentrates largely on the technical savvy of left-wing extremists and not bloodshed. 

    "The perception that cyberattacks are non-violent aligns well with ideological beliefs, strategic objectives and tactics of many left-wing extremists," the earlier report reads. "The increasing reliance of commercial business and other enterprises on cyber technologies, including interconnected networks and remote access, creates new and expanding vulnerabilities that technically savvy left-wing extremists will exploit."

    The report specifically mentions "eco-terrorist" Earth Liberation Front, which has been accused of firebombing construction sites, logging companies, car dealerships and food science labs. The report notes that left-wing extremists prefer economic damage on businesses to get the message across. 

    "Their no-harm doctrine includes claiming to ensure the safety of humans, animals and the environment even as they attack businesses and associated operations," the report reads. " Direct actions range from animal releases, property theft, vandalism and cyber attacks, all of which extremists regard as non-violent, to bombings and arson."

    The assessment says it "focuses on the more prominent leftwing groups within the animal rights, environmental, and anarchist extremist movements that promote or have conducted criminal or terrorist activities."

    Re: Those darn evil right-wingers and returning troops

    I love how the article points out how "left-wing groups" have carried out acts that affect businesses financially and how "direct actions range from animal releases, property theft, vandalism and cyber attacks, all of which extremists regard as non-violent, to bombings and arson." Yet, right-wingers who under the  latest assessment by DHS' Office of Intelligence and Analysis found no specific information that domestic right-wing terrorists are currently planning acts of violence are put on the same level as these left-wing slime. If you want to look towards dangerous groups in this country, look to the left as they have ACORN (fixing elections) and several eviromentalist extreme left-wing groups like the Earth Liberation Front and others supporting a potentially dangerous GREEN MOVEMENT in this country. Yet, a report praises the left for thier technically saavy and thier ability to "cyber attack" and create havoc over the internet almost whenever they want.


     The reason for the rise in the right-wing anti-sentiment is simply because we are worried and care about the country and dislike the direction the country is headed in currently under Obama and the rest of the lefties. We don't like the reckless spending, higher taxes, and the nationalization of just about everything that affects the economy. We also don't like the weakening of our nation's defenses, the "nanny state" that is currently being created, and other numerous reasons under the leadership of Obama and the left.

    Today, tax-day, I am sure that we will see the TEA PARTY REVOLTS on the news and those TEA PARTY'S will get skewed in a negative light by the leftist news broadcasts covering the story. I am sure that some "righties" will be arrested and they will make the news. However, when the left protest against something watch how the story will be skewed in a more positive light.

    Re: Those darn evil right-wingers and returning troops

    If right wing extremists are so concerned about the direction of the country less then 100 days into a new presidency where where they over the last 8 years?  Surely these "patriots" understand the issues of today didn't materialize out of thin air on November 4th 2008. 

    Let's not sugar coat the facts, right wing extremists of all sorts have been buying the Republican talking points that Obama is going to violate their white daughters, steal their guns, turn the country into a socialist (or is it communist) hellhole, steal their bibles, and then violate their white daughters again for good measure.  All of which would be amusing considering how poorly the Goodship America was piloted under Bush and how these same people felt everything was fine. 

    This disingenuous and intellectually lazy assessment of the country is why the Republican brand is bankrupt of ideas and quickly retreating even further into the recessess of lunancy and fanatacism.  It is why Glenn Beck has fashioned himself into some bizarre tent revival leader, why Michelle Bachmann is trying her absolute hardest to become McCarthy v2.0, why these "Tea Parties" are being coordinated based on the spark provided by a former derivatives trader and no one blinks an eye, and its why these extermist groups are expanding their rosters based on lies and ideological strawman arguments that boil down to something as ridiculous as "OMG SOCIALISM", when I have yet to meet a single person claiming that Obama is a socialist who can even define what socialism is! 


    Oh and for grins and giggles please name just one election that ACORN fixed.  Then explain how they "fixed" it.  Please include actual facts and details.

    yea the same news people that are gonna paint these people as nuts for holding perfectly legal rallies (protected by the 1st amendmendment by the way) are the ones who were telling us how great and civil the protestors in england were as they were smashing out bank windows with anti-capitalism signs in their hands... what a joke the media is!

    Since when is it a bad thing for american citizens to gather and let their opinions be heard?? the conservatives are right now the DEFINITION of taxation without representation, we are asked to pay our fair share and then walked all over by the democrats in Washington, while having our ideas and ideologys scoffed at by a bunch of power hungry libTards who think they can turn the world into a reality version of John Lennons "imagine". I applaud everyone for going to these Tea Parties and hopefully it leads to something positive for this country.

    There is no fascination with Obama and white daughters, the point is, and I think by the end of the day we will see plenty more examples of how these protests are tinged with racism and fueled by distortions.  Clearly the extremist groups exhibit these tendencies most notoriosuly embodied by the gentleman in Pittsburg who killed three police officers because he felt Obama would take his guns, even though Obama has stated numerous times he has no such inclination (nevermind lacks the power) to do such a thing. 

    There is nothing wrong with the tea party protests from a legal standpoint, and no one has said anything to contrary.  What people are saying is the entire premise is flawed insofar as blaming Obama for the mess he inherited.  The country isn't where it is because of Obama, remember it was not even ten years ago that the US was running a budget surplus.  Gee, I wonder what happened to all that money?

    Re: Those darn evil right-wingers and returning troops

    Noone said this was about Obama, this is about the Gov't as a whole, and this anti spending sentiment has building for quite a while. We had a president that spent way too much (Bush), and our new President while campaigning pledged to stop this non sense and install some fiscal responsibility to Washington. Well he did hes making average Americans fiscally responsible for the slackers and the badly run corporations. Enough is Enough its time people to let the opinions be heard. Sure there will be a few whackos out there, but to paint all these people as Lunatics makes you the crazy person. These for the most part are ordinary people who are sick of heariong about their future being spent away on a daily basis. They have no other recourse in the situation but to stand up for themselves in the only way they legally can...So get over yourself and your paranoid dillusions and stop being so scared.

    The protests have zero to do with Obama specifically. They have 100% to do with all elected officials and their spending OUR money recklessly. The fact that this President and Congress have blown @$2 TRILLION dollars in @6 months and seem intent on pushing that to @$5 Trillion in the next 18 months. And are then coming to us, the tax payers, to pay for it all. You libs are making it an Obama and racial thing.

    BTW, many libs here in Mass. will be on the common as part of this protest too. Blacks, Hispanics, Asians, Caucasians, Christians, Jews, Muslims, liberals, conservatives, libertarian, democrat, republican and unenrolled.

    I don't have a problem with the rank and file participating and I don't think all involved are lunatics.  However I know that this "event" is a stagemanaged spectacle less aboout taxation in general and more about opposition to the Obama administration.  The Tea parties have been completely co opted by conservative money and the libertarian roots of this idea has been set aside in favor of partisan politics that largely ignore very basic economic theories and practices.

    The same groups who have been saying for years that the government (yes Bush and Rep. in Congress) were spending too much. We have also said Bush wasn't a true conservative but a neo-conservative. He was less concerned about spending and more concerned about nation building.

    The post describes obama as African-American.

    Eric Holder wants to see an honest discussion on race.  I'm not a coward and will happily discuss race, will you?

    Why is obama considered African-American?

    Do you subscribe to the one drop theory?

    If you see a black man and he's not a US citizen, is he still "African American"?

    If I go to france, and see a black man, do i refer to him as african french?

    What if he's not from africa?  Dominican American for example?

    So confusing.

    I love how the liberals rationalize everything by arguing .....but Bush did it!!!!

    Conservatives hated how Bush spent money, hated how he handled illegal immigration and blame him solely for putting us into a position that allowed a junior Senator from corrupt Chicago, who has anti-American tendencies and an unprecedented thirst for power to become President of the United States.

    Bush was a fiscal liberal who grew government and spent too much.  Obama has spent more in his first 50 days than Bush could manage in 8 years.  How do looney liberals rationalize such irresponsibility???

    After 8 years of a liberal and 4 years of a radical anti-capitalist liberal......the only answer will be a genuine conservative....and wow what a difference it will make.  It's really our only hope at this point as a nation.

    You have a true gift for hyperbole.  The "anti-American" got elected by Americans who had ample opportunity to evaluate his character and proposals (and his supposed thirst for power).  Most people think he is mainstream and hardly "anti-capitalist".   But you think you are smart and right and most everyone else is stupid and wrong. Saying this repeatedly will not make it true.

    Macnh1,


    Simple answer to your question is because LIBERALS ARE HYPOCRITES.


    ALWAYS HAVE BEEN AND ALWAYS WILL BE.


    Your right, were is the outrage on all this MEGA SPENDING by Obama from the left? Especially when they were all over Bush for his spending. 

    HYPOCRITES
