An internal memo was released yesterday by DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano for consumption by TSA personnel. This memo officially classifies those who are "opposed to, or engaged in the disruption of the implementation of the enhanced airport screening procedures" as “domestic extremists," explicitly including those participating in Opt-Out Day.

The introductory paragraph of the multi-page document states that it is issued “in response to the growing public backlash against enhanced TSA security screening procedures and the agents conducting the screening process.” Implicit within the same section is that the recently enhanced security screening procedures implemented at U.S. airports, and the measures to be taken in response to the negative public backlash as detailed [in this directive], have the full support of the President. In other words, Obama not only endorses the enhanced security screening, but the measures outlined in this directive to be taken in response to public objections.

For individuals who engaged in such activity at screening points, it instructs TSA operations to obtain the identities of those individuals and other applicable information and submit the same electronically to the Homeland Environment Threat Analysis Division, the Extremism and Radicalization branch of the Office of Intelligence & Analysis (IA) division of the Department of Homeland Security.

Canadian Press

The government is clearly freaked out about the possibility of a mass protest today. I would guess that some regular looking people will be arrested and made examples of if the crowd gets too unruly or the line gets too long. The fact that the government is going to record your name and distribute it as if you are a criminal can only have a chilling effect on the legitimate exercise of our First and Fourth Amendment Rights. No one wants to placed on a government list of domestic terrorists for an indefinite period of time.

AKA If you don't act like a good sheeple, you're basically going to be branded a terrorist. Why am I not surprised?

I should start my own public list of known terrorist threats.

Every time I find out a TSA agents name, I'll add it to the list.

If the government can do it to us, we should be able to do it right back to them.

The terminology contained within the reported memo is indeed troubling. It labels any person who “interferes” with TSA airport security screening procedure protocol and operations by actively objecting to the established screening process, “including but not limited to the anticipated national opt-out day” as a “domestic extremist.” The label is then broadened to include “any person, group or alternative media source” that actively objects to, causes others to object to, supports and/or elicits support for anyone who engages in such travel disruptions at U.S. airports in response to the enhanced security procedures.

I highlighted that last bit because.... well, that includes us here on ATS!

Now it would be nice if someone could actually produce the memo in pdf form.

Actually.. and no offense to the OP... I really hope this is a hoax..

flipping throught the site's other stories:
they look like they are paying attention.
if it isn't a true story
it might as well be.
we know the patriot act and the other acts make out every resistance to tyranny

the cowardly tyrants
are terrified
poor little hobgoblins.
no one would hurt them if they were in jail
execept maybe in the showers.

DHS is such a freaking joke.
Soon they will realize people are going to stop playing their little bend over and bite the pillow game.
Janet Napolitano is doing her siblings an injustice by "attempting" to portray a human being. I talked to her brother a few weeks ago and he is asked me if she will ever return to grazing in the field with the other fat cows.

Needles to say I don't speak bovine, so I can only assume that's what the beast was asking in it's moo-ish language.
I'm glad I left America........Fat Cow Janet N..

I don't have enough curse words n my "terrorist arsenal to throw, spew, sling, or hurl at the heaping mound of political trash that resides in the cesspool which is Washington DC.
However God knows if I ever get my chance I'm going to use every single possible and customary fowl mouthed word I can think of, charge into one large Dragon Ball Z power zen force ball and shoot it their direction with the strength of a thousand suns!

I want to see the PDF; I don't doubt for a second that this is real, it would be the same thing already perpetrated by the government against its people a hundred times since 9/11, but I want to confirm it, print it out and slap a few people in the face with it.

So, now that most of us are more afraid, creeped out, wary, etc...of the TSA than we are of Al Qadea, doesn't that make THEM the terrorists?

Seriously, whomever couldn't see this (the public outrage at these new measures) coming would have to be a fool to the greatest degree. Which means most likely, they anticipated this level of public outrage and didn't care. Or perhaps they're COUNTING on it. Scary scary shizz.

I fear the TSA and DHS more than any terrorists. The government is out of control. They want us to all submit to their will and be good little compliant sheep.

If protesting against the intrusive federal government peacefully by refusing to accept the scanners and pat downs means I am a "domestic extremist" then I will wear that label with honor.

For that matter sense we are all terrorists now lets be the best we can be.
When you go to the airport grab the first sorry TSA worker you see who looks like a jerk, grab him by the throat squeeze his little trachea until he is blue in the face and "DEMAND HE KNEEL BEFORE YOU" in the name of all those who died in every war in vain!
I'm about to go Hannibal Lector here man!

They want a terrorist, they want to come at you when you are peacefully resisting. That's when they will swing their BS at you like gods of the world, I say smite their sorry *** and make them remember their place

Jplaysguitar, man, please type in English if you're going to post. It is difficult to read and lacks any formal sentence structure which is important when you're trying to get a point across. Not trying to be offensive.

Ok so the TSA pat-downs are deplorable and the machines are arbitrarily specking you with radiation. Both have proved to be completely ineffective at catching terrorists and it's been proven that the head of the TSA Pistole was given a $300m contract for these. So when we peacefully/openly resist the oppression we are labeled as domestic terrorists? I thought this was a free country.

We need to open a Free America Campaign and get air time. We need to step up our game and start playing hardball. It is more important now to reach out to other people that are "sheep" and instill in them the idea that their freedoms are being squashed, slowly and methodically. First and foremost we can't refer to them as "sheep". They have been manipulated into believing that they are free and these steps are for their protection. They need to see with their eyes the atrocities that these politicians and bureaucratic organizations are committing. Let's do it.

These are the people needed:
Filming crews,
PR agents,
Graphic Designers,
Information Technology Personnel,
Managers (to manage stories),
Printing Specialists

This is what I can think of off the top of my head and I think there are plenty more. Most likely this will all HAVE to be voluntary but ideas are welcomed. Feel free to U2U me and I'll compile a list from everyone. Let's see if we can do this and make a difference for the betterment of the US people which hopefully in turn will help the rest of the world.

First paragraph from source:

Following the publication of my article titled “Gate Rape of America,” I was contacted by a source within the DHS who is troubled by the terminology and content of an internal memo reportedly issued yesterday at the hand of DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano. Indeed, both the terminology and content contained in the document are troubling. The dissemination of the document itself is restricted by virtue of its classification, which prohibits any manner of public release. While the document cannot be posted or published, the more salient points are revealed here

I have a real problem with this. While I am against the existence of DHS, and the tactics used by the TSA, I'm not so sure how much stock I should put into this story. I think it would be healthy, and PRUDENT to regard this with a good bit of skepticism. While, after the MIAC fiasco, and DHS definitions of who is a terrorist, I can see the reason why we would assume that this too is true, and indeed if it is, could be quite explosive...But until I see this memo, I won't be buying what CFP is selling.

They are on their way to making these categories so broad as to alienate a large section of their populace and make the categories useless, unmeaningful, and impossible to patrol.

Another Brillant Bureaurcractic Adminstrative Mess.

The way they categorize people these days, it would seem that only the top 10% (wealthiest) will be left holding the title of good and sane law abiding citizen. When a minority like that starts judging the majority, look out!

Man I'm really tired of these A$$holes! I've so had enough. I have already vowed to never fly as long as any of these "improved" security measures remain as they are a freakin joke.

I also do my best to give the information I have concerning the government being in the hands of a corporatist plutocracy to anyone that will listen.

But it just still stinks to only be able to sit idly by and watch your rights disappear one at a time while most people still have no concern or worse, are so brainwashed that they think this garbage is a good idea!

What can you do though? You certainly can't turn to violence. I am half convinced that would only help further their cause and/or that's what is wanted. And I am positive that it would be near impossible to out-violence the most violent group of people in the world.

So what do we do? Nothing? ....Sigh....

No, they are setting the stage
for complete Martial Law.
Any resistance will be met
with either death or a FEMA Camp
for re-programming.
Re-programming will include
shock-therapy, water-boarding
and a brand new RFID implant.
