from Rachael L. McIntosh:
It was four years ago that I had my party. I wanted to show everyone the hatand the outfits that I had gotten for the convention. I also wanted help coming up with what it was going to say on the card that I was going to be passing around. The people that I had invited, I could trust them. As I remember, I was actually kind of scared. The news had been hyping up the fact that they were transferring prisoners to make room for all the protestorsthey anticipated arresting. That security was going to be extremely tight. Police where coming in from other states for backup. Protest groups were being infiltrated.
Meanwhile a whole slate of documents were being circulated. One called “Rage on the Right: The Year in Hate and Extremism,” in which groups opposed to issues like the Obama health care plan and illegal immigration were lumped with white supremacist groups like the National Socialist Movement and Skin Heads.
The crazy thing is that the group writing and publishing this had/has direct ties to the Department of Homeland Security and was helping to write official DHS policy.
DHS with the help of this group released “Domestic Extremism Lexicon” which labeled the following to be extremists, bordering on terrorism: Those concerned over the economy (like who wasn’t) ; loss of jobs (again, who wasn’t); foreclosures (duh! it was the middle of the housing collapse); antagonism toward the Obama Administration (our country has a long history of criticism of our presidents); Criticism of free trade programs (could this be related to the aforementioned jobs thing?); stock piling food (well considering the jobs thing…); oppose illegal immigration (well, it is ILLEGAL, right?); oppose a New World Order; oppose the UN; oppose global governance; fear of Communist regimes; oppose loss of US manufacturing to overseas nations (they still don’t see the jobs thing) ; anti-abortion; oppose gay marriage (interesting in light of the recent Orlando shooting that this be included); and they use the internet or alternative media to express any of these ideas (use the INTERNET?! Like, they expect people to use a quill andpassenger pigeons?!). As you can see, there was a big net being cast. I wasn’t involved, or knew about half the stuff I was supposedly associated with.
Naturally, with the USAPATRIOTACT, which had been for convenience sake been shortened to The Patriot Act, in full effect, people, like myself, who were supporting a return to constitutional logical governance and specifically a call to sound money, a balanced budget, and a foreign policy of non-intervention could be monitored and tracked in the name of national security. I remember sadly taking the bumper sticker off my car because I didn’t want to be targeted as an “extremist” since by this time supporters of political candidates and whole political parties were included on “the list” in “The MIAC Report”. The list of potential terrorists ended with Americans who supported not just one, but three different legit presidential candidates. My candidate was on the top of “the list”. It also cited those who opposed the creation of a North American Union with Canada and Mexico.
