Is The Dept. of Homeland Security on Drugs?

Acording to The Washington Times the Dept. of Homeland Security issued a warning to law enforcment agency's across the country that "rightwing extremist activity," saying the economic recession, the election of America's first black president and the return of a few disgruntled war veterans could swell the ranks of white-power militias." This means that as Americans who are at these Tea Parties ,which by the was also means peole from both parties, who's tired of Government just slaming us with higher taxs and not putting spending limits on themselves are nothing more than terriorist.
You just can't make this insanity up. If congress and government could put limits on themselves just like citizens have to do then maybe higher taxes would be acceptable. But intead we're getting it from all sides. State as well as Federal Government has made it almost impossible for the regular people ,to juggle what budgets we can.
Homeland Security warning had a footnote at the bottom "It may include groups and individuals that are dedicated to a single-issue, such as opposition to abortion or immigration," the warning says."
In other words I'm one of those people because I am against abortion ,I am against our immigration problem,when it comes to illegals,and border security. So what Homeland Security is saying I am a terrorist.
From what I see the true meaning of this security warning is for Government itself is showing the terror. It's acting no better than back in the early 20's when socialist dectators reacted in the same way. Don't get me wrong , I don't believe the President is trying to be such a leader, he really maybe trying his best to solve a huge problem in the best way he can. But demonizing those who have opposing thought doesn't mean a terrorist act.
Part of the report that I feel was distrubing was the following quote;
  • One report says extremist groups have used President Obama as a recruiting tool.
  • "Most statements by rightwing extremists have been rhetorical, expressing concerns about the election of the first African American president, but stopping short of calls for violent action," the report says. "In two instances in the run-up to the election, extremists appeared to be in the early planning stages of some threatening activity targeting the Democratic nominee, but law enforcement interceded."
  • When asked about this passage, Secret Service spokesman Ed Donovan said, "We are concerned about anybody who will try to harm or plan to harm any one of our protectees. We don't have the luxury to focus on one particular group at the exclusion of others."
  • Congressional debates about immigration and gun control also make extremist groups suspicious and give them a rallying cry, the report says.
  • "It is unclear if either bill will be passed into law; nonetheless, a correlation may exist between the potential passage of gun control legislation and increased hoarding of ammunition, weapons stockpiling, and paramilitary training activities among rightwing extremists," the report said.
  • The FBI was quoted Monday as saying that, since November, more than 7 million people have applied for criminal background checks in order to buy weapons.
