Military veterans consistently poll as identifying themselves as conservative, which in Obama’s world equates into “right wing extremists.” In fact, the Left has lumped everyone into this category who doesn’t swallow Obama’s big government crisis management mode of government—which tends to mean nullifying the Constitution and/or spurning Congress.
But when Obama’s big government plans start calling for “universal background checks” and bans on “assault weapons,” those who are students of history know what is next: totalitarianism. And despots need an enemy. Hitler had the Jews, and Obama has conservatives.
Some will cry conspiracy theory; and up until perhaps a year ago, I would have joined in handing out tin foil hats. But just this week, the Obama administration sent out a slew of letters to “disabled” veterans, telling them to turn in their guns. The Department of Homeland Security produced a ten-minute video on how to recognize domestic terrorists. Did any of these “domestic terrorists” hail from the Middle East or North Africa, as one would normally expect given their track record? Or were they likened to the domestic terrorist par excellence, the Fort Hood Shooter, Nidal Hasan? Oh, wait a minute. That was “workplace violence” according to the Obama administration. So what did these potential domestic terrorists look like in the DHS “training” video? All middle class, all white. Must have just been a coincidence.
How exactly did the DHS come to the conclusion that white, middle class American citizens were the enemy? Well, the government did what the government does best— commission a study. A little known sub-department within the DHS called the National Consortium for the Study of Terrorism and Responses to Terrorism—START, for short— published “Hot Spots of Terrorism and Other Crimes in the United States.” Who should we be worried about per START? Those who are “reverent of individual liberty.” Those who are “suspicious of centralized federal authority.” Those who believe there is a “grave threat to national sovereignty and/or personal liberty.”
Kind of sounds like those who identify themselves as part of the Tea Party movement.
This is no joke, America. Barack Obama and his Marxist minions are coming after conservative America with a vengeance.
