Was this a calculated manipulation by Homeland Security?

http://www.foxnews.com/politics/first100days/2009/04/14/homeland-security-warns-rise-right-wing-extremism/

So this comes out just before the tea parties are supposed to take place, is this government's attempt to connect tea party participants with extremists? Are the tea party participants supposed to feel that they don't want to be linked to REAL right wing extremists and drop the idea of going to the tea parties? I am wondering, what do you think is the real agenda behind this warning?

  • That's it Quinn... This is the most poorly written report I have ever seen. But it seems to be par for something the (inexperienced) Obama and his Administration would produce. Our tax dollars are being spent to write unspecific reports with what appears to beno specific threats. And to lump returning war vets in a right-wing extremist category. Does that mean every returning war vet will be "watched"? Come on. Total absurdity.

    You just expect people to sit around and let people boss them around and be a bunch of pu$$y bitches about it? Sorry- we're not like some democrats, we let people know we're sick of their shit and show it.

  • No, it doesn't mention anything about the 'tea parties' in the entire article! Its talking about extremists using the current economic downturn and other factors to further 'recruit' supporters for their cause.

    I think that the main focus of the article was on the white-supremacy groups gaining more ground with (previously) more tolerant people due to the state of the economy and using returning veterans anger (over everything from benefits to war in general) to lend credibility to their twisted ideals.

    It has NOTHING to do with the tea parties.

    There have already been several (foiled) assasination attempts/plots by white supremacists and this article just brings the tactics the groups are using; to light.

  • Read the OP, ozarkgirl3. It doesn't say that the homeland security warning said anything about tea parties. It asks if this was a calculated attempt to discourage party goers from participating. I suggest gaining a little perspective before going off on a rant next time.
