Be Afraid, Be Very Afraid

On April 7 Janet Napolitano, the head of homeland security, released a nine page document warning of "radicals on right". Not 10 days later CNN's Susan Roesgen was reporting from the Chicago tax day tea party which was organized to protest the bailouts, stimulus package, wasteful spending, and all around misuse of American's tax dollars:

"This is anti-cnn since it is highly promoted by the right wing conservative network Fox". You see, what this document does is allow the leftist media to come out of the closet. Whereas they used to at least have to put up the pretense of being unbiased, now they will surely present it as their patriotic duty to beat up on the right.

The Washington Times reports that "A footnote attached to the report by the Homeland Security Office of Intelligence and Analysis defines "rightwing extremism in the United States" as including not just racist or hate groups, but also groups that reject federal authority in favor of state or local authority"

First off, racist? Umm, clearly Ms Napolitano must have failed history cuz umm, who freed the slaves? The right. Who supported the fourteenth and fifteenth amendments? The right. Shall I go on?

Secondly, "groups that reject federal authority in favor of state or local authority"? Once again Ms. Napolitano insists on advertising her ignorance because the United States was founded as 13 independent states united under a very loose federal government. This country was founded on loyalty to individual states not to a massive federal government which has long since overstepped it's bounds.

"It may include groups and individuals that are dedicated to a single-issue, such as opposition to abortion or immigration," Which is why the pro-life movement has to remain a 100% peaceful organization. Pro-Lifers: please remember, the devil hates us. And he will do anything and everything to trip you up. Screaming at people, especially at women entering clinics, is not pro-life and you are not helping anyone when you do that. That is the devil twisting your righteous anger and using it to hurt the cause.

"The report . . . makes clear that the Homeland Security Department does not have 'specific information that domestic rightwing terrorists are currently planning acts of violence.'It warns that fringe organizations are gaining recruits, but it provides no numbers." Well then what's the point of publishing it? Oh, of course, silly me, to smear the right, and give the left an excuse to treat us unfairly. In fact, could this be a ploy to implement the "fairness" doctrine?

As a p.s. here are two little notes of interest about cnn's reporting:

Susan Roesgen tells the man with whom she is arguing that the stimulus will give $50 billion to Illinois, but how much of that do you think this guy is gonna get? I would be willing to bet most of my possessions that it's a whopping ZERO!

She goes on to state that "this is not really family viewing" yet later on the very same network it was perfectly acceptable for Anderson Cooper to state that "It's hard to talk when you're teabagging."

Notre Dame Scandal

"Bernie Madoff has declined an honorary doctorate in economics from the University of Notre Dame, but all is not lost. Barack Hussein Obama, enabler in chief of abortion, has agreed to speak at the 2009 commencement and to receive an honorary doctorate of law. That abortion and its advocacy violate a primary precept of natural law reinforced by the Catholic Church’s explicit doctrine is a mere bagatelle. Wackos of all kinds will kick up a fuss, of course, but their protest will go unnoticed in South Bend. The pell-mell pursuit of warm and fuzzy Catholicism will continue. How better to defend the faith than to celebrate a man who advocates polishing off babies even after they are born? The newly created Herod Award will be added to the university’s recognition of the chief magistrate. Administrators are hugging themselves with delight at this massive publicity coup. The national championship in football has eluded Notre Dame for many years, but when the president dribbles onto the stage at the great event, the hall will erupt in ecstatic applause; the president, Father Jenkins, will wring his hand; and a final nail will be driven into the coffin of a once-great Catholic university. No one will note nor long remember what Barack Obama says on the occasion. Who listens to commencement addresses? But the Lady atop the golden dome, recalling the flight into Egypt, will exhibit one of her many titles: She who weeps."
