DHS says I'm a "domestic terrorist." Are you?

You no doubt have heard that the Department of Homeland Security (Dept. of Homeland Insanity in my book!) has labeled veterans, pro-lifers, those who oppose illegal immigration, etc. as domestic terrorists. Thomas More Center (TMC) has opposed this nonsense, as has the American Center for Law and Justice. DHS head Janet Napolitano apologized to veterans, but others like you and I are fair game for their bigotry.

TMC lists a number of political opinions that can get you named a "right wing terrorist" in addition to opposing abortion. They include:

Opposes restrictions on firearms

Opposes lax immigration

Opposes the policies of President Obama regarding immigration, citizenship, and the expansion of social programs

Opposes continuation of free trade agreements

Opposes same-sex marriage

Has paranoia of foreign regimes

Fear of Communist regimes

Opposes one world government

Bemoans the decline of U.S. stature in the world.

Upset with loss of U.S. manufacturing jobs to China and India

Does this sound like you? It sure sounds like me and every conservative I know. (Although I wouldn't consider a sensible "fear" of Chinese and North Korean Communists and Islamic terrorist regimes "paranoia." I think it's common sense.)

TMC has filed a lawsuit against the Federal Governmnet in the name of three plaintifs for violating their rights under the first and fifth amendments. Visit their website and support this important work. If American patriots can be labeled "domestic terrorists" for defending the Constitution, what's next? Internment camps?
