We’re a threat to national security?

.- According to a Homeland Security Report distributed to law enforcement organizations, abortion opponents are as great a threat to national security in the immediate future as white supremacists.

The nine-page document was sent to police and sheriff’s departments across the country on April 7 under the headline, “Rightwing Extremism: Current Economic and Political Climate Fueling Resurgence in Radicalization and Recruitment.” The report is unclassified, but is accompanied by a warning that says it “contains information that may be exempt from public release under the Freedom of Information Act.”

The report was prepared by the Extremism and Radicalization Branch of the Department of Homeland Security and claims it was “coordinated with the FBI.”

“Rightwing extremists,” the document says, “have capitalized on the election of the first African American president, and are focusing their efforts to recruit new members, mobilize existing supporters, and broaden their scope and appeal through propaganda, but they have not yet turned to attack planning.”

    there’s no “shoe” Paula. Read our blog and the charter and mission statement of every ProLife organization. An act of violence is a ProChoice act. Directing well deserved scorn at (or prayers for) an abortionist is an ethical thing to do. Calling for any violence toward them or the nation is so far from our mindset that this writer is clearly inventing a demon for them to go conquer.

    The only security we’re a threat to is the political security of the Right to Kill folks.

    ACLJ Demands Retraction from Dept. of Homeland Security on Labeling Pro-Life Supporters as ‘Extremists’ in Terrorism Report

    (Washington, DC) – The American Center for Law and Justice (ACLJ), focusing on constitutional law, announced it is launching a national campaign today demanding that the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) retract a warning it included in a recent report on domestic terrorism that labels pro-life supporters as ‘extremists.’ At the same time, the ACLJ is notifying all 50 states that the report – and the offensive warning – should not be used to curtail the First Amendment rights of pro-life supporters. Further, the ACLJ is supporting a call for Congressional hearings on the DHS report.
