This President's Enemies: Americans?

While the rest of us may be worried about violent Mexican drug gangs on our border, or about terrorists who are going to be released from Guantanamo, the director of homeland security is worried about “right-wing extremists.”..Just who are these right-wing extremists?…According to an official document of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, right-wing extremists include “groups and individuals that are dedicated to a single issue, such as opposition to abortion or immigration.” They also include those “rejecting federal authority in favor of state or local authority.”…If you fit in to any of these categories, you may not have realized that you are considered a threat to national security. But apparently the Obama administration has its eye on you….Are You an ‘Extremist’, Thomas Sowell, National Review, 4/21/2009

Sowell, whose article you should read at the link, shouldn’t be surprised by this. Obama’s predecessor as Democrat in the White House felt that it was more important to kill 86 people in Waco, including dozens of children, than to go after Osama Bin Laden. One cannot argue for wisdom or sanity of the leader of that religious cult, but one can argue that none of those burned to death on Janet Reno's orders were a danger to the United States of America. As for the danger to the children, Attorney General Reno killed them herself to prevent their theorized death at the hands of religious extremists. Like follows like. A man with a pathological hatred of his own background and nation is likely to find its greatest enemies among its citizens.
