There’s a front-page report on the DHS report highlighting the dangers of “right-wing extremists” in today’s Stars & Stripes, yet strangely I can find nothing about it on their web site. I wonder if that was an editorial decision to bury the story? You can’t unprint newspapers, but you can easily delete a link.
There was some speculation that this report was some sort of clever and complex hoax, but Michelle Malkin confirmed it, and the Stars & Stripes has it front page of their print edition, at least here in Germany.
I think this comes under the heading of “boiling the frog slowly.” They don’t even mention any “credible threat” in the report. Just a vague sort of “sense” that economic conditions and a black president “might” foment discord by disgruntled right-wingers and disaffected miliatary veterans.
In other words, there are dangerous points of view out there, against which we must be vigilant. Viewpoints like, illegal immigration is bad, abortion is wrong, or that the President of the United States shouldn’t be running our civilian corporations or determining what content on the Internet is permissible.
What exactly is it that the Left is so afraid of? So afraid that they have to villify, marginalize, even criminalize conservative viewpoints? And more importantly, why are we letting them get away with it?
