The Music of Distant Jackboots Is Getting Louder

From CQ:

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) does not list right-wing domestic terrorists and terrorist groups on a document that appears to be an internal list of threats to the nation’s security.
⋅ ⋅ ⋅
It also lists left-wing domestic groups, such as the Animal Liberation Front (ALF) and the Earth Liberation Front (ELF), as terrorist threats, but it does not mention anti-government groups, white supremacists and other radical right-wing movements, which have staged numerous terrorist attacks that have killed scores of Americans. Recent attacks on cars, businesses and property in Virginia, Oregon and California have been attributed to ELF.

DHS did not respond to repeated requests for comment or confirmation of the document’s authenticity.

Of course this makes sense — right-wingers, as the modern-day incarnation of the nation's founders, are real patriots and thus, by definition, cannot constitute a threat to the government (especially when one considers that they now control the government); enviro-fascist liberals, on the other hand, are all terrorists on a par with al Qaeda.

Harry says (in comments here):

...I'd say torching a parking lot full of SUVs is pretty much the same as shooting ob-gyn dcotors, morally speaking. While one is vandalism and [the] other is murder, they're both meant to save lives. Grafitti is actually terrorism, too, if you think about it. Some of it coerces people into thinking about things that make them feel bad.

But he's mistaken. Torching a parking lot full of SUVs is an act of terrorism (and maybe he's right — maybe graffiti is too); sniping ob-gyn doctors baby killers in their own home is the brave, selfless act of a Patriot, and cannot be construed as any sort of threat to the nation's security by right thinking people — at least so far as real Murkans are concerned, that is.

I think Murkans should be proud that their government has their priorities right!
