If you were asked to compile a list of dangerous domestic extremists, who would you include?
First on my list is the Obama administration followed closely by the Democratic Party. Then I would add LGBT activists, pro-abortion activists, Bloomberg and other anti-Second Amendment activists, black racial activists like Al Sharpton, illegal immigrants and Islamic extremists. I’m sure I could come up with many more groups, but I think these would make up the top of my list.
However, the FBI doesn’t agree with my list at all. They recently released their unclassified edition of the National Threat Assessment for Domestic Extremism. Their list includes Puerto Rican nationalists, black nationalists, animal rights supporters, environmentalists, pro-abortion and pro-life groups.
Mark Hyman is a former intelligence officer, weapons inspector, congressional fellow, lobbyist, business executive, decorated veteran and now the host of the commentary spot Behind the Headlines with Mark Hyman. He commented about the FBI’s new list, especially about who wasn’t part of it, saying:
“One group the FBI completely excluded from its report? Islamic extremists.”
“Apparently, the FBI never heard about Iyman Faris, the Pakistan-born American citizen who was collaborating with 9/11 mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammed to collapse the Brooklyn Bridge.”
“Or Nidal Hasan, the Muslim who corresponded with terrorists overseas. And then one day shouted ‘Allahu Akbar’ – ‘God is great’ – before killing 13 at Fort Hood, Texas.”
“The FBI must also have overlooked the Tsarnaev brothers. Muslim extremists who were behind the Boston Marathon bombing.”
“The FBI is not alone in ignoring the threat posed by Islamic extremists. A month ago, the Department of Homeland Security warned of a threat posed by domestic extremists. DHS identifies this group of extremists as those holding an anti-government view or who support the Second Amendment.”
So according to the FBI and DHS, Islamic extremists like ISIS members crossing our southern borders are not a domestic threat, but I am. I’m pro-life, pro-Second Amendment and very anti-Obama. I’m also a conservative who is very pro-Constitution, Bill of Rights and states’ right. I openly write against the Obama administration including the FBI, DHS and IRS. Worst of all, according to the government, I’m a devout Christian who will die for my faith.
Growing up, these characteristics would make me a loyal American who is very patriotic and loyal to my Lord and Savior. Today, they make me an enemy of the state. Is it any wonder that America has fallen so far from its once power and glory?
