Department of Homeland Security Backs Down, Pulls Report

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has egg on its face. This morning the Washington Times reported that the "right-wing extremism" report has been pulled. The document labeled pro-lifers, veterans, those who oppose illegal immigration, and others as potential domestic terrorists. No evidence, mind you, just bigoted stereotyping of those who subscribe to conservative principles of government. A liberal administration that considers "profiling" anathema when it comes to Muslim men in turbans, had no problem profiling those who respect the lives of unborn children.

While this action is welcomed, it would be naive to think that deep-sixing a report based on bigotry will change the mindsets of liberals who demonize their opponents. Recall that DHS head Janet Napolitano originally defended the report and refused to apologize. The tiger may be pretending to be a pussycat at present, but those who love liberty better maintain their vigilance.

A big thank you to the American Center for Law and Justice, one of the groups actively protesting this assault on the free speech rights of American citizens.

You have to understand the liberal mindset ... what is obvious to a liberal isn't profiling, but what is demonstrable by evidence is.

Isn't that obvious?
