NOW THOUGHT CRIME IS TERROR IN U.S.?

‘There’s an attempt to marginalize people who hold views that are sharply different’

author-image GREG COROMBOS

The Justice Department is resurrecting a program designed to thwart domestic threats to the United States, and Attorney General Eric Holder says those threats include individuals the government deems anti-government or racially prejudiced.

The Domestic Terrorism Executive Committee was created in the wake of the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing but was scrapped soon after the 2001 terrorist attacks as intelligence and law enforcement officials shifted their focus to threats from outside the country. The committee will be comprised of figures from the FBI, the National Security Division of the Justice Department and the Attorney General’s Advisory Committee.

In his statement announcing the return of the committee, Holder said he remains concerned about the specter of attacks prompted by Islamic extremists, but he said this committee will be tasked with identifying other threats.

“We must also concern ourselves with the continued danger we face from individuals within our own borders who may be motivated by a variety of other causes from anti-government animus to racial prejudice,” Holder said.

According to reporting from Reuters, the American Civil Liberties Union is pushing back against the DOJ plan, fearing “it could be a sweeping mandate to monitor and collect controversial speech.”

Conservative groups are alarmed on multiple levels. First, they see themselves once again the target of an administration that disagrees with them philosophically.

Project 21 is a network of black conservatives.

Cooper said plenty of presidents dealt with critical speech, particularly in opposition to the Vietnam War and even the Iraq War. He said no president ever responded like this.

“We didn’t arrest them (due to their speech). We didn’t try to prevent them from being able to express themselves on campuses, and we didn’t try to prevent them from trying to enter into the public square,” he said. “This administration appears not to appreciate that lesson and says that the groups of people that are not within their particular perspective ought to be considered the very threat … that the real terrorist threat that comes internationally [presents].”

Project 21 is a very vocal critic of what it considers administration efforts to cloak liberal policies in the guise of racial equality. Cooper said devoting resources to stop threats based on racial prejudice is a solution in search of a problem.

“We’re particularly bothered by mixing together so-called domestic insurrectionists and racists. There is simply no anti-black or anti-minority underground movement in America that is threatening in any way the stability of our government or the stability of local governments. There is just nothing like that. That’s just a complete and total boogeyman,” said Cooper, who believes the Justice Department is fully aware of the reality.

“When we see this administration talking as if the real threat is that if you’re a young black male, you’re going to be shot, you’re going to be kidnapped or you’re going to be forced to prison without actually having any charges against you, there’s simply no evidence to show that,” he said.

Cooper said Holder could solve this debate by compiling a report showing the real number of racially motivated murders, kidnappings and bombings. He said that report will never come because he believes the real motivation for this committee and this policy is entirely political.

“In our organization’s view, this is done, particularly the racial component, to create the false impression to minority communities that it is the Obama administration that is here to help them and another reason why, with all of the economic failings that they have provided to Americans generally and minorities in particular, they should continue to consider giving away their vote to that particular administration,” Cooper said.

“We are still under a threat watch. We still have all of the security measures that we put in place after 2001. The period of 2001-2008 was a period in which we thwarted more than a few. Some of those have been made public. But many of those still have not made public. But what we’ve seen since the beginning of the Obama administration is that many of these attacks, whether they’re increasing or not, are being more effective. They’re actually happening,” Cooper said.

“To shift more resources away from the threat that’s real to this theoretical problem is harmful to the safety of Americans and is more about a political agenda than it is in protecting Americans.”

  1. And on what grounds? Do they have just cause? Of course not. He is nothing but a thug overstepping his authority.
    Bring it on big guy, pick my brain, you might learn something.

     
  2. Reblogged this on Dead Citizen's Rights Society.

     
  3. Yet, is it not the administration that is doing most of the terrorizing in this country these days? Most of the population is too busy to do that sort of thing, just trying to survive. And of course, most people aren’t interested in terrorizing anyone, anyway, when they can be doing positive things to make life better for everyone in this country.

     
  4. The POS is trying to intimidate us. Don’t be intimidated.

    The REALITY is if this disgraceful anti-constitutional sorry excuse of a government actually tries to arrest U.S. citizens for being “anti-government” and “racially discriminatory” — neither of which is a crime in the United States Constitution or in any law book in any city or state — there will be an army of lawyers descending on Pres. Hitler and his minion Holder. And this will happen BEFORE massive civil disobedience.

  5. Sounds like the Chicago Way…

     
  6. Let’s see… Didn’t Hitler have his Brown
    Shirts, Mussolini his Black Shirts, and the Oamamama has his Blue Shirts, I believe.

    Bring ’em all on, it’s time to settle matters, traditionally!

     
  7. I would normally say it’s time for this Kenyan communist bastard to be removed from office, but this congress is as worthless as tits on a boar hog.

    It may yet still be possible to save our America, but the ballot box just ain’t gonna do it.

    Not even close.

  8. I’m with Dave – forget the ballot box. This last “election” convinced me that something nasty goes on out there on election day. In my younger days I didn’t believe that such crookedness existed. Got over that when pos got “elected” the second time….

     
  9. Thank you Trail Dust for this significant post. Indeed, we will not go quietly into the night. We will fight for our Constitution, for our country, for our freedoms, including our freedom of religion and freedom of speech which has been horribly violated by the king of this country and his administration. We must stand with courage against abortion, against the HHS Mandate, against the suppression of our beliefs and liberties. “Ilia iact est,” – The dye has been cast!

     
  10. I just found this article today, and it fits here regarding taking away our free speech rights.
    http://freedomoutpost.com/2014/06/bombshell-benghazi-video-maker-behind-benghazi-attack-found-confirmed-muslim-agent-worked-us-government/
    The Istanbul Process has to do with making it a criminal act to criticize Islam. It has been years in the making. The article shows that the maker of the “anti-Islam video” that everyone blamed for Benghazi – was actually made by a faithful Muslim for that very purpose (blame and setting up Stevens to be kidnapped). So people could blab on forever about being nice to Muslims, etc.
    And it was most likely he (Stevens) who would have been traded for the 5 from Guantanamo, and the blind sheikh to boot, but we’ll never know for sure.
