On the long list of Islamic Terrorists, White Supremists, and violent Political Activists, there are people or ideals that our DOJ believes can be
violent. Here is a list of terms/concepts that were slipped into this file, and should be an eye opener for the majority of us on ATS.
Biblical Money: Gold and silver. Many members of the “patriot” movement believe that the Bible mandates that the only lawful money consists of
gold and silver coins.
Christian Patriots: A term used, especially in the 1970s and 1980s, to describe people sympathetic to right-wing ideology.
CitizensMilitia: A type of paramilitary group often started to “protect” the citizenry from a tyrannical federal government. See also Unorganized
Civil RightsTask Force (CRTF): A “patriot” group headquartered in California (with members in many states) that primarily impersonates law
enforcement. CRTF sells nylon jackets (with “Civil Rights Task Force” printed on the back, just as law enforcement agencies have jackets with
their names on the back), gold badges, business cards, and other paraphernalia.
Constitution Party: A minor, right-wing extremist political party, formerly known as the U.S. Taxpayers Party (USTP), which is one of the primary
parties that specifically try to appeal to the “patriot” movement.
Constitutionalists: A generic term for members of the “patriot” movement. It is now often used to refer to members of the sovereign citizen or
common law court movement. Sometimes the word “constitutionist” is also used.
Counterintelligence: In the “patriot” context, spying on and keeping track of public officials and law enforcement officers. Such actions are very
popular in the “patriot” movement, particularly among militia groups, who frequently have “intelligence officers” devoted to this sort of
Globalization: This term generally refers to the denationalization of economies, markets, products, and populations brought about by ever faster
travel, improved communications, and advances in technology.
Prisoner of War (POW): A term often used by terrorists to describe themselves while incarcerated. Many terrorists believe that by declaring themselves
POWs, they should enjoy certain benefits not accorded to normal criminals.
Silver and Gold: The only “biblical” and “constitutional” money, according to members of the “patriot” movement. Some members go so far as
to refuse to use paper money, conducting all of their transactions in silver or gold or through barter.
Tax-Protest Movement: A movement consisting of people who do not simply want to avoid paying taxes but generally claim they should not have to pay
them. The right-wing movement started in the 1950s and 1960s and has concentrated on interpreting the Constitution, U.S. law, and the tax code, in
particular, in such a way as to be able to claim that most people do not have to pay income taxes. The motivating force behind the right-wing
tax-protest movement was to find loopholes, actual or manufactured, that would allow people to claim that they had no tax obligation.
Vegan: Many animal rights activists prefer to call themselves vegans as opposed to omnivores who consume both meat and plant life. Vegans tend to
believe that a diet without meat is better for the environment and reduces animal abuse. In addition to avoiding meat, vegans do not consume anything
associated with animals, including milk and egg products. True vegans do not eat fish.
Most of these terms would of been embraced by our fore fathers, but now are considered "extreme." Here is a link for the complete list.
