Report was edited and published under the Obama administration.
While this type of report is nothing new, the smearing of a generalization of people is.
In previous reports about violence and left wing extremists groups (that Tim and UnP pretend don't exist), the reports were very specific about the groups that could resort to violence. Earth Liberation Front, Animal Liberation Front, etc.
But this report smears whole groups of people by including them in with racists and hate groups that they have nothing to do with.
Rightwing extremism in the United States can be broadly divided into those groups, movements, and adherents that are primarily hate-oriented (based on hatred of particular religious, racial or ethnic groups), and those that are mainly antigovernment, rejecting federal authority in favor of state or local authority, or rejecting government authority entirely. It may include groups and individuals that are dedicated to a single issue, such as opposition to abortion or immigration.
Don't agree with more power to the federal government? You are an extremist prone to violence. Don't support amnesty for illegal immigrants? You are an extremist prone to violence. Don't support abortion? You are an extremist prone to violence.
Lots of generalizations and "maybes" in there so as to not need facts to support the accusations and still be able to smear people.
This is an attempt to marginalize those who disagree with Obama and the Democrats by lumping them in with vile groups such as racists. The politicization of homeland security to smear political opponents. A new low.
Rightwing extremist chatter on the Internet continues to focus on the economy, the perceived loss of U.S. jobs in the manufacturing and construction sectors, and home foreclosures. Anti-Semitic extremists attribute these losses to a deliberate conspiracy conducted by a cabal of Jewish “financial elites.”
Who knew, all of the union members lamenting the loss of manufacturing jobs are actually right wing extremists. All of those anti-semitic racists, who hated Bush and his support of Israel, are actually right wing extremists. Who knew.
