Homeland Security Claims We Are All Potential Right Wing Extremists

Leftwing distorter of facts Keith Olbermann, the host of Countdown With Keith Olbermann on MSNBC, interviewed millionairess commentator Arianna Huffington  last evening, to get her assessment of a new Department of Homeland Security (DHS) report warning of a potential resurgence of “right wing extremism.” Specifically, the report depicts conservatives as being especially susceptible to radicalization and recruitment by “extremist” groups.

Potential recruits, we are told, include all Americans who happen to be concerned about illegal immigration, unfettered abortion-on-demand, ever-increasing federal power, and restrictions on firearms.  Also bearing scrutiny, the report warns, are returning war veterans and people who have been affected by the economic downturn (which “could create a fertile recruiting environment”).

Agreeing fully with the report’s assertions, Ms. Huffington declared that conservatives, by nature of their political “desperation,” are “forced to willingly identify with these right wing extremists…white supremacists…very marginalized extreme groups.”

House Judiciary Committee Ranking Member Lamar Smith has put the report in proper perspective, noting that it amounts to nothing more than a crude form of “political profiling” by the DHS.

It’s remarkable to hear a leftist like Huffington, who views profiling based on skin color as an injustice of the highest order, express complete support for profiling that disparages people because of their ideas. This is simply another example of how the Left does not tolerate dissenting opinions. Instead, it characterizes its ideological adversaries as mindless loons who are incapable of arriving at rational conclusions on their own, and who thus are vulnerable to the influence of “right wing extremists.”
