We have learned over the passage of the last few years that those who hold positions within the Obama regime exhibit behavior consistent with that of despotic tyrants of the past and present.
One of the chief offenders, Eric Holder, has just announced that he is coming after everyday American patriots, especially those who use the Internet. Apparently Holder believes the most dangerous kind of “lone wolf” is one who communicates with other lone wolves. That makes sense.
On Monday, he announced the creation of a special task force within the “Justice” Department to combat what he characterized as an “escalating danger” from “homegrown” terrorists within the U.S.
In an internal video presentation, Holder pointed to the questionable Boston Marathon bombing and the Fort Hood incidents as examples of homegrown threats.
While Nidal Hassan was born in the U.S. to Palestinian parents, the Tsarnaev brothers were born in the Kalmyk Autonomous region of the Soviet Union and Kyrgyzstan. The second Fort Hood shooter, Ivan Lopez, was originally from Puerto Rico, a U.S. territory.
Maybe that whole “homegrown” persona needs a qualifier attached to it. No matter, Holder’s using it as the premise to target both Americans and our right to freely communicate over the Internet.
The special task force will be composed of members of the FBI and the “Justice” Department’s National Security Division. There will be a wealth of attorneys as well, to prepare and process the paperwork and court documents.
The original incarnation of the task force came under Janet Reno as a result of another dubious incident, the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing. After the Department of Homeland Security came into existence, it was abandoned. Now, with DHS pre-occupied with flooding America with illegal aliens, Holder gets his opportunity to go after American citizens.
Using the IRS targeting of conservatives as well as the obvious agenda that the regime and Holder are pushing as a guide, we can easily glean the likely focus of this task force. One can expect that the domestic group comprised of those evil racist heterosexual redneck Christian veteran gun-owning crackas will be occupying most of the top positions and garnering most of the attention.
Under Janet Reno, the original task force targeted the poorly defined “right-wing zealots,” aka non-Democrats. Holder identifies the modern-day targets of his new and improved special group as U.S. citizens or visitors which have become “radicalized” via the Internet. He said the reincarnation of the task force doesn’t signal a departure from existing programs. The specific targeting of Americans is a complement to other efforts already in place.
Holder said, “We also must concern ourselves with a different type of threat. We face an escalating danger from self-radicalized individuals within our own borders.” Maybe he should question the wisdom of having open borders in light of his stumbling onto a domestic threat the next time he meets with the boys in the White House.
Still showing obvious confusion over the meaning of the term “homegrown,” Holder said, “Horrific terror incidents like the tragic shootings at Fort Hood and last year’s Boston Marathon bombing demonstrate the danger we face from these homegrown threats.”
He continued, “Now – as the nature of the threat we face evolves to include the possibility of individual radicalization via the Internet – it is critical that we return our focus to potential extremists here at home.”
Free speech, Americans and the Internet, that’s what’s wrong with America in Holder’s world and he’s determined to fix it.
