The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has issued a report in which it identifies just about anyone who criticizes the government for its spending and drive to Socialism as a potential terrorist. We cannot call the War on Terror what it is, but Americans who stand up for the founding principles of this nation can be labeled terrorists? Do you see the Orwellian logic yet?
When peaceful protests against an out of control government rush to socialism and fascism are deemed to be breeding grounds for terrorism rather than American expressions of grievance against their government and elected officials then the First Amendment has died. When local government officals can demand exorbitant sums for ordinary Americans to express their grievances (as in demanding insurance bonds for peaceful demonstrations such as Tea Parties) then the First Amendment has died. When the government can use its law enforcement powers to investigate those who speak out for an adherence to the founding principles of our great republic then the First Amendment has died.
If we succumb to this abrogation of our rights. Then America has died!
Do not succumb, America is worth fighting for!

Here is Roger Hedgecock’s original article.

I think it is important for all of us to remember that Americans are not the enemy. The terrorists are.
Update: Col. Allen West weighs in on the disrespect shown to veterans in the report! This is a MUST READ!
Update 4/16/09: Lawsuit Filed Against Janet Napolitano!
Here is a picture of the bozo woman behind this:
Janet Napolitano, former Governor of Arizona, appointed by Obama to head the Department of Homeland Security.
Defender of the ‘rights’ of illegal immigrants, destroyer of the rights of American citizens.
READ THE CONSTITUTION, JANET!
See Debbie Schlussel’s report on the new ‘de facto’ amnesty policy that Janet Napolitano has put into place at DHS.
We will, of course, be honored to join Atlas Shrugs on the list of bloggers who are censored from the Department of Homeland Security internal internet access. As a benchmark of patriotism it stands par excellence!
