One month after the San Bernardino terrorist attack that left 14 innocent people dead, Department of Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson told advisors that right wing extremists pose just as much of a threat to the country as Islamic extremists.

Johnson made the comments during the Homeland Security Advisory Council’s (HSAC) January meeting. City of Austin Police Chief Art Acevedo, whom Johnson appointed to HSAC, shifted the discussion to the threat of right-wing extremists, according to the official meeting minutes.

“Member Acevedo reminded the Council that the threat from right-wing extremists domestically is just as real as the threat from Islamic extremism,” the minutes state.

Johnson echoed the sentiment. “Secretary Johnson agreed and noted that CVE [Subcommittee on Combating Violent Extremism], by definition, is not solely focused on one religion,” the minutes state.

Another council member, Cardinal Point Strategies CEO Paul Goldenberg, joined the chorus.

“Member Goldenberg seconded Member Acevedo’s remarks and noted the importance of online sites in right wing extremist communities, not only in America but worldwide,” the minutes state.

The meeting was also attended by the co-chairs of HSAC’s Subcommittee on Combating Violent Extremism.

That's very ironic coming from the same people who have been trying to label "Americans who believe in the Second Amendment, or who don't agree with any of Obama's policies, or who don't believe nor like a World government, or who don't believe or like a communist government, or American veterans" among other things as "possible extremists/possible terrorists"...

West Point center cites dangers of ‘far right’ in U.S.

By Rowan Scarborough - The Washington Times - Thursday, January 17, 2013

A West Point think tank has issued a paper warning America about “far right” groups such as the “anti-federalist” movement, which supports “civil activism, individual freedoms and self-government.”

The report issued this week by the Combating Terrorism Center at the U.S. Military Academy at West Point, N.Y., is titled “Challengers from the Sidelines: Understanding America’s Violent Far-Right.”

The center — part of the institution where men and women are molded into Army officers — posted the report Tuesday. It lumps limited government activists with three movements it identifies asa racist/white supremacy movement, an anti-federalist movement and a fundamentalist movement."
...
The report also draws a link between the mainstream conservative movement and the violentfar right,” and describes liberals asfuture orientedand conservatives as living in the past.

While liberal worldviews are future- or progressive -oriented, conservative perspectives are more past-oriented, and in general, are interested in preserving the status quo.” the report says. “The far right represents a more extreme version of conservatism, as its political vision is usually justified by the aspiration to restore or preserve values and practices that are part of the idealized historical heritage of the nation or ethnic community.

It seems more and more obvious that the Obama administration is using tragedies such as the one that occurred in Orlando Florida, but which is very sketchy as some ATS members found and the agenda of the Obama administration is simply to use these tragedies to label their political opposition as "possible extremists/possible terrorists.

When are Americans going to wake up as to what is actually going on?

If any of you disagree with "any" of the Obama's administration policies, make sure you write to your representatives/Senators and tell them that we don't stand for this, that the Obama administration can't simply use tragedies such as this one to impose their anti-American agenda, nor to label Americans who differ in opinion with the Obama administration as "possible extremists/possible terrorists".

We need to take to the streets, and peacefully demonstrate in the millions that we don't want fascism in the United States.

Just part of Obama's plan.

" The right for a civilian to bear arms"
" Then you are coming with us. We have a special place for you"

What? Conservatives are the ones doing things like shooting park rangers and staging armed takeovers of government facilities, not to mention bombing abortion clinics.

And don't forget all the lovely right wingers calling for Obama's death, and bringing guns to town meetings, while wearing shirts calling for bloody revolutions.

Let's take Johnson's comments seriously for a moment.
Bundy ranch - far right, correct? Many were armed, how many people were shot?
Zero.
Malheur wildlife refuge standoff - more far-right wingers. Again, how many got shot?
1 - and that was by Oregon State Police or FBI, there was no return fire by the man killed.
Sorry Jeh, I just can't come up with any dangerous right wing statistics to validate your concerns.
Better go back to doing Sudoku puzzles or something non-threatening to the rest of us.
You suck at your job.
Or you just lie a lot.

Thats exactly why this talk about bans for people on a terror list scares me. What constitutes one as a threat enough to be put on a list? It opens pandoras box for the elite to rid themselves of the "trouble makers" so they can further their agenda.

This is one reason why Obama refuses to use the term 'radical Islam'.

He wants to focus on any kind of extremism, and since he is a muslim sympathizer (read his life history), his focus will mainly be on those that heavily criticize the government, hold their ground on the Second Amendment, and support states' rights over a bloated authoritarian federal government.

This is why we cannot allow a government Watch List that can be used for political purposes.

I have thought for a long time now that he will target real Americans that speak up and speak out loudly and strongly.

We are about to have a show down, I do believe.

The Walmart shooter was a Somali Muslim extremist.

The Bernardino shooters were both Muslim extremists.

The Orlando shooter/s were Muslim extremist/s.

Yes, there are some people who lean to the right and can be crazy and murder people, but going after Americans and branding Americans as "possible extremists/possible terrorists" simply based on political difference is only marking the start of a left wing fascist government using tragedies conveniently to silence their opposition.

Precisely. Turn us against each other and watch us crumble. It's a sad state of affairs these days and the worst part is we are all focusing on the wrong part of the voting process. We need to pay more attention to the people we elect into our local offices.

Where are you getting this from? What armed takeover are your referring too? And the second part of your statement is covered by the 1st and 2nd amendment.

In the last week we have had a democrat terrorist kill 49, a Muslim dude just shot up Walmart in Amarillo, BLM just rioted in Atlanta, and Police officer was just shot by a morrocan muslim in Ohio. In the last week show me one instance of a right winger doing anything like this. Oh and I forgot most of the inner city folks in Chicago are Democratic Obama supporting lefties and they kill each other in droves on a weekly basis.

Wake up!

This is the plan, to demonize the right. The message from this administration and many progressives is getting old. In a nutshell, it is all based on the Marxists idea of oppressors and the oppressed.

To the administration and many of its supporters, white/men/cis/american/wealthy/able bodied/Christian/right wing, are all groups that are oppressors, and the inverse of these groups are the oppressed. That is why they can't bring themselves to say Islamic extremism is a problem, because in their minds, Muslims are always the oppressed.

So now they pivot and blame things that are considered oppressors in their minds, the right wing groups, Christians, etc. How else cane you explain this statement by Johnson in the OP, or the litany of articles blaming Christians and republicans for fight gay marriage being responsible for the murder of these 49 people?

This is also why only whites can be racist, and why there is a constant narrative of the US causing all evil in the world, etc. Do to this narrow minded bigoted approach, nothing will be done to fight ISIS in a proper sense. Progressives will just keep blaming the rightwing and making excuses for the actual people responsible. We can see threads right here on ATS that are doing this.
