    Homeland Security continues to demonize Conservatives and Libertarians

    By Bob Barr


    Thanks to the federal government’s constant overreach and deference to international organizations such as the United Nations, many Americans have become increasingly distrustful of government institutions and officials. Meanwhile, government officials seem to have become increasingly distrustful of individual liberty, a distrust that manifests itself in a number of bizarre and frightening ways.

    To cite a particularly absurd example of this distrust, the Missouri Information Analysis Center (MIAC) issued a report in 2009 titled “The Modern Militia Movement” warning that “militias” — very broadly defined — were on the rise, and that readers of the report should be wary of individuals displaying the Gadsden (“Don’t Tread On Me”) flag or whose vehicles displayed bumper stickers supporting two-time Republican presidential candidate U.S. Rep. Ron Paul, 2008 Constitution Party presidential nominee Chuck Baldwin or me (I was the 2008 Libertarian Party presidential nominee).

    MIAC later apologized for these idiotic statements, which it deleted from the online version of its report. The federal Department of Homeland Security (DHS), however, has not let up in its crusade to demonize all manner of liberty-oriented groups. Around the same time that MIAC published its report on “right-wing groups,” DHS issued its own report — which happened to come out just as the tea party movement was becoming a force in national politics — lumping together tea party organizations and white-supremacist groups, and labeling them all “right-wing extremists.” DHS said that these groups are “hate-oriented” and noted that “extremist chatter on the Internet continues to focus on the economy, the perceived loss of U.S. jobs in the manufacturing and construction sectors, and home foreclosures.” Such concerns about our economy obviously were valid political expressions then, and remain so today. Linking such views to inappropriate if not unlawful behavior is abhorrent.

    Given the outcry from conservatives over that report, one would think that DHS would be at least hesitant to smear opponents of the Obama administration again. Wrong.

    The National Consortium for the Study of Terrorism and Responses to Terrorism (START), which provides research analysis to DHS, issued a report in January offering what it presents as an historical look at terrorist “hot spots” around the country from 1970 to 2008.

    The report may appear innocuous, but it is not. It offers a carefully scripted but insidious analysis of Americans who happen to hold certain philosophical or political views, many of which are common among Conservatives and Libertarians...

    With the above post you appear to be a libertarian from your description of one.

    Yes, it is very sad. But i consider it wonderful news that Big Brother hates us so much. I wouldn't want it any other way. It's a fantastic sign the Freedom & Liberty Movement is very healthy. It's scaring the shit out of Big Brother. And that's a great thing.

    Yeah, I'm sick of them always rambling about "Constitutional Issues", "Civil Liberties" and other boring shit like that.

    I'd prefer my candidates to just stick to singing 60's R&B tunes at campaign rallies.
