Missouri retracts report linking militias, 3rd party candidates


www.mcclatchydc.com

The Missouri Highway Patrol this week retracted a controversial report on militia activity and will change how such reports are reviewed before being distributed to law enforcement agencies.

The Highway Patrol also will open an investigation into the origin of the report, which linked conservative groups with domestic terrorism and named former presidential candidates Ron Paul, Bob Barr and Chuck Baldwin.

Lt. Gov. Kinder suggested putting the director of public safety on admin. leave.

It'sa bout time someone showed a little brains in Missouri government. The Dem. governor refused to do anything about this!

It took the Rep. Lt. Gov. Peter Kinder to call the "public safety" department and MIAC on this ignorant rant against conservative values.

Kinder and others, including the Director of the Highway Patrol noted the "terrorists" in the report did not include Islamic groups, environmental terror groups (like PETA) and others considered aligned with "liberal" causes.

We have to be on our toes and ever vigilant against "political profiling" as the knowlegdeable authorities noted in demanding the retraction, investigation and modification.

Retracting the report doesnt change anything.

The entire institution that wrote it in the first place isnt going to suddenly shift opinion. Those who believed this garbage will go on believing it and those who opposed it will continue to oppose it.

An "official action" by any group doesnt change anything anyone thinks or does who is a part of said group. You cant change hearts with policy.

... and to think many were accusing a certain Mr. Jones of being a fearmongering liar who hoaxed the whole thing!

I'm sure they will all be lining up to apologise!

It eliminates an excuse for official harassment, though. Under the memo, having the wrong bumper sticker could get you pulled over.

It happened in Dallas last year to a guy with a sign on his van opposing Obama! (probably others, too, we haven't heard about)

"Many" and "they" don't give a damn and couldn't care less about opposing viewpoints.

They don't want to hear counter-arguments, and will do what they can to silence them.

This is excellent! They have even had to choose a "fall" guy, the director of public safety! Good work everyone who called, and blogged, and circulated the news! Fight on!


The Highway Patrol’s announcement followed a news conference in which Lt. Gov. Peter Kinder, a Republican, suggested putting the director of public safety on administrative leave and investigating how the report was produced.

The uproar revolves around a report released last month by the Missouri Information Analysis Center, a "fusion center" for local, state and federal law enforcement agencies to collaborate on domestic security issues. The report concerned militia movements in Missouri and across the U.S., and described how they had evolved over the last several years.

Standing your ground and speaking out can work. It's high time those who care make a stand and make yourselves heard.

Yes, this is excellent. I don't think the report was written up in two months so lets be careful that blame does not miss those that deserve it! Keep it up people.

I still think it's unbelievable that they would have the nerve to issue this report. Were they really stupid enough to think the law enforcement would have gone along with it, or are they just trying to set a precedent?

When you think about how cocky the minority liberal/progressive/dems were after the elections, you can understand the mentality.

What they STILL don't understand is that mainstream America is conservative. Not Republican, Libertarian, Neo-Con, Neo-Nazi, or Minutemen Militias.

Conservative, middle-class, family values.

I remeber when Obama was talking about eliminating "middleclassness" during the campaigns. He and his liberal sycophants just don't get it.

Stand up. Speak out. Deny ignorance!

What about all of the other absolutely ludicrous "warning signs?" According to them, everyone who believes in the NWO and frequents chat rooms are terrorists. This retraction is meaningless.

But they are, aren't they? The 'warnings' have continued for so long because few have defended themselves or felt it necessary to respond.

A rumor left to fester becomes accepted as truth.
