Appearing on the Drudge Report today is an article from the Washington Times where the Department of Homeland Security is warning the public about new threats to public safety by “rightwing extremists”. The lead paragraph spells out the position of the DHS:
“The Department of Homeland Security is warning law enforcement officials about a rise in “rightwing extremist activity,” saying the economic recession, the election of America’s first black president and the return of a few disgruntled war veterans could swell the ranks of white-power militias.”
Wait a minute. Did we just read that correctly? Did it just refer those speaking out on the “economic recession” as “rightwing extremist activity”?
We ask these questions in light of the TEA Party events happening across Arizona and nationwide tomorrow. [For details on the closest TEA Party to you, please visit the Tax Day TEA Party website.] Does this mean that we too will be considered “extremists” for speaking out against out of control spending, lack of accountability to the taxpayers, the threat of higher taxes, and the sheer arrogance of just handing out taxpayer funds at will.
“‘It may include groups and individuals that are dedicated to a single-issue, such as opposition to abortion or immigration,’ the warning says.”
Fellow patriots, the words of this memo released by DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano spell out one thing — they are afraid of the taxpayers. They are afraid of people from all walks of life, all professions, and all political affiliations gathering together in opposition to the direction of our country, its spends, the economy, and its direction. They are afraid because people are speaking out.
Tomorrow, April 15, we need everyone to turn out in their local communities or at the major events happening in the state to tell our political leaders that we are tired of their empty rhetoric and of their disrepectful attitude to the taxpayers. We must make our voices heard that we are Taxed Enough Already. Come on, let’s party like it’s 1773!
