right here. The guide describes itself as "a glossary designed primarily as a tool for criminal justice professionals to enhance their understanding of words relating to extremist terminology, phrases, activities, symbols, organizations, and selected names that they may encounter while conducting criminal investigations or prosecutions of members of extremist organizations."
It is a sad day for America when the U.S. government starts labeling American citizens as potential criminals and terrorists just because they have a different political view than the majority. This is the kind of thing that happened under Hitler, Stalin and Mao. But it is happening in the United States in 2010. People are being branded as terrorists and extremists simply based on their political speech.
The following definitions come straight out of the report....
Patriot Movement: The “patriot” movement is a general term used by its members to describe the collective movements and individuals on the extreme right wing. In one form or another, this practice dates back many decades; in the 1930s, many on the far right referred to themselves as “superpatriots.” In the 1960s and 1970s, it was common to refer to the “Christian Patriot” movement, but this term is less common now than then. Among the types of individuals that can be found within the “patriot” movement are white supremacists, sovereign citizens, tax protesters, militia members, and sometimes antiabortion or anti-environmental groups.
Constitutionalists: A generic term for members of the “patriot” movement. It is now often used to refer to members of the sovereign citizen or common law court movement. Sometimes the word “constitutionist” is also used.
Survivalists: The survivalist movement feared a coming collapse of civilization, generally as the result of nuclear war, and tried to prepare themselves to survive it. Survivalists typically stockpiled food, water, and weapons, especially the latter, and instructed themselves on topics ranging from first aid to childbirth to edible plants.
New World Order: A term used by conspiracy theorists to refer to a global conspiracy designed to implement worldwide socialism.
Information Warfare: Synonymous with cyberwarfare, information warfare is the offensive and defensive use of information and information systems to deny, exploit, corrupt, or destroy an adversary’s information, information-based processes, information systems, and computer-based networks while protecting one’s own. Such actions are designed to achieve advantages over military or business adversaries.
Council on Foreign Relations (CFR): Along with the Bilderbergers and the Trilateral Commission, one of the three key groups that conspiracy theorists claim operate behind the scenes to control the world and to establish the “New World Order.”
Bilderbergers (Bilderberg Group): Along with the Trilateral Commission and the Council on Foreign Relations, one of the three groups targeted by right-wing extremists for conspiring to dominate the world.
Keep in mind that these terms are listed alongside "Al-Qaeda" and "the Aryan Brotherhood" in the guide. It is clear that the Department of Justice considers "patriots", "anti-abortion groups", "constitutionalists" and anyone concerned about a "New World Order" to be extremists just like members of "Al-Qaeda" are considered to be extremists.
Are you starting to get the picture?
This is disgusting. Please contact your representatives and express your outrage over this report. All the authors of this report deserve to lose their jobs.
This kind of demonization of political speech is horribly anti-American and has no place in our republic. Hopefully some of the major mainstream media networks will pick up on this report and make it a huge story, because it deserves to be one.
