Report: US is ripe for recruiting by extremists


www.comcast.net

WASHINGTON — Homeland Security officials are warning that right-wing extremists could use the bad state of the U.S. economy and the election of the country's first black president to recruit members to their cause.

In an intelligence assessment issued to law enforcement last week, Homeland Security officials said there was no specific information about an attack in the works by right-wing extremists.

The agency warns that an extended economic downturn with real estate foreclosures, unemployment and an inability to obtain credit could foster an environment for extremists to recruit members who may not have been supportive of these causes in the past.

This scares me. I hope they are not grouping in supporters of Ron Paul with this report, like so many other reports have done. This scares me because i openly discuss gripes i have with wreckless spending by the government with freinds wether it be through facebook or other forms of electronic communication. I hope i am not considered a radical by my own country. That would be pretty sad, because we were born in this country with the right to disagree.

Hon, hate to tell you, but you are being labelled a terrorist not just a radical. Our right to disagree with what our government is doing is being criminalized - RIGHT WING EXTREMISTS!! And, this is being broadcasted to the masses repeatedly on news channels all across the country.

WHAT IS A RIGHT WING EXTREMIST??

Check out the above thread to get an idea of what, according the our government, a right wing extremist is.......you may find yourself included!!

Yeah right, if this were the case then there would be a whole bunch more people attacking stuff, but alas there are not.

Why have people not attacked, cause this whole idea of citizens attacking just actually represents a bunch of BS.

more attempts by government to paint opposition as a threat, when in fact a majority never voted nor agreed to this government.
