Homeland Security Report Lists ‘Liberty Lovers’ As Terrorists

A new study funded by the Department of Homeland Security characterizes Americans who are “suspicious of centralized federal authority,” and “reverent of individual liberty” as “extreme right-wing” terrorists.

Entitled Hot Spots of Terrorism and Other Crimes in the United States, 1970-2008, the study was produced by the National Consortium for the Study of Terrorism and Responses to Terrorism at the University of Maryland. The organization was launched with the aid of DHS funding to the tune of $12 million dollars.

While largely omitting Islamic terrorism – the report fails completely to mention the 1993 World Trade Center bombing – the study focuses on Americans who hold beliefs shared by the vast majority of conservatives and libertarians and puts them in the context of radical extremism.

The report takes its definitions from a 2011 study entitled Profiles of Perpetrators of Terrorism, produced by the National Consortium for the Study of Terrorism and Responses to Terrorism, in which the following characteristics are used to identify terrorists.

  • Americans who believe their “way of life” is under attack;
  • Americans who are “fiercely nationalistic (as opposed to universal and international in orientation)”;
  • People who consider themselves “anti-global” (presumably those who are wary of the loss of American sovereignty);
  • Americans who are “suspicious of centralized federal authority”;
  • Americans who are “reverent of individual liberty”;
  • People who “believe in conspiracy theories that involve grave threat to national sovereignty and/or personal liberty.”

    Truer words have only been spoken by communist. The US is doomed when its HEROES are called criminals.

    Is this really a surprise to any Conservative or Libertarian? We are the single major threat to liberals destroying this country and taking away all of our freedoms, and milking us of our money. The list of reasons that targets non-liberals is also the list our founding fathers belonged to, so since this country was founded by “terrorists”, then liberals are the outcasts!

    Actually, I can see where this report is going. Historically, there have been many hate groups in the US, which could easily fall into the categories listed. Wanting change and fanaticism are two sides of the same coin. If we look at the “well meaning” fanatics who shoot to kill at abortion clinics, then yes they should be considered terrorists or at least criminals, compared to “well meaning” opponents of the same issue. So, though the report can be read to mean that if you are patriotic and want to change the system that you are being watched, I would consider where you want to put your interpretation!

  • CTH says:

    The Department of Homeland Security in its present configuration, like Obama Care, should be excised by the roots Or maybe just fire all of the idiots who are currently in charge of that agency along with their idiot deviant employees.
