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.
