What My Government’s Department of Homeland Security Thinks About Me

They sound scared.  Good.

Domestic Extremism Lexicon

(U) aboveground
(U//FOUO) A term used to describe extremist groups or individuals who operate overtly and portray themselves as law-abiding.

I really am law-abiding. So far.

(U) decentralized terrorist movement
(U//FOUO) A movement of groups or individuals who pursue shared ideological goals through tactics of leaderless resistance independent of any larger terrorist organization.

Pretty much all my future acts of leaderless resistance will be independent of any terrorist organization, large or small. Is resistance necessarily terroristic? DHS seems to think so.

(U) militia movement
(U//FOUO) A rightwing extremist movement composed of groups or individuals who adhere to an antigovernment ideology often incorporating various conspiracy theories. Members oppose most federal and state laws, regulations, and authority (particularly firearms laws and regulations) and often conduct paramilitary training designed to resist perceived government interference in their activities or to overthrow the U.S. Government through the use of violence.
(also: citizens militia, unorganized militia)

That’s what they think of people who believe the Second Amendment means what it says. Oh, yeah. Scared.

(U) patriot movement
(U//FOUO) A term used by rightwing extremists to link their beliefs to those commonly associated with the American Revolution. The patriot movement primarily comprises violent antigovernment groups such as militias and sovereign citizens.
(also: Christian patriots, patriot group, Constitutionalists,
Constitutionist
)

All you “rightwing extremists” waving your Gadsden Flags at tea parties are violent. Not yet. But the limits of forbearance will soon be reached.

(U) rightwing extremism
(U//FOUO) A movement of rightwing groups or individuals who can be broadly divided into those who are primarily hate-oriented, and those who are mainly antigovernment and reject federal authority in favor of state or local authority. This term also may refer to rightwing extremist movements
that are dedicated to a single issue, such as opposition to abortion or immigration.
(also known as far right, extreme right)

If you actually think the Ninth and Tenth Amendments mean what they say, you’re a”rightwing extremist.”

(U) tax resistance movement
(U//FOUO) Groups or individuals who vehemently believe taxes violate their constitutional rights. Among their beliefs are that wages are not income, that paying income taxes is voluntary, and that the 16th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, which allowed Congress to levy taxes on
income, was not properly ratified. Members have been known to advocate or engage in criminal activity and plot acts of violence and terrorism in an attempt to advance their
extremist goals. They often target government entities such as the Internal Revenue Service and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.
(also: tax protest movement, tax freedom movement, antitax movement)

Can’t have a Federal Government without some kind of revenue, but am I bad if I ask questions about the ratification of the Sixteenth Amendment?

This Lexicon defines the terms these people use to describe me and many other Americans who haven’t drunk the Kool Aid. It supposedly was “withdrawn” after it was disseminated.

Their mask slipped. They keep this up, I’ll dig mine out.

  2. Oh yeah. People should not fear their government, government should fear their people. So long as the government SERVES the people as they are supposed to, they would have no reason to worry.

    If you look closely at my BMEWS Avatar, you will see it has 3 elements. A really pissed off cat firing an AK (full auto in the GIF original) with a very large explosion in the background. I’m pissed off about much of what I’ve seen happen to my country in the last 30 years. I want to help stop what I see as our decline.

    I suppose that defines me as a domestic terrorist. Never mind that I have repeatedly stated that I never again want to see flaming barricades and riot troops on the streets of the United States. Any of you who followed the anti Viet Nam war protests and riots know exactly what I’m talking about. Whichever side of that argument you’re on, you cannot say that we want that kind of senseless violence on our streets. The sporadic Anarchist riots are bad enough, I don’t want to see more. That level of violence and hatred just shouldn’t have any place in our national dialog. I know it happens sometimes. That doesn’t mean I’ve got to like it.
