It argues that the economic downturn and the election of a black president may radicalize these unnamed and undefined groups. But it presents precisely no evidence that this has happened or might happen in the future. In fact, it says that DHS "has no specific information that domestic rightwing* terrorists are currently planning acts of violence ...." (Nor, I might add, does it offer any general information.)
Because of the looseness of its language, suggests that any group might be "extremist" if it is "antigovernment" or "dedicated to a single issue, such as opposition to abortion or immigration." It comes perilously close to identifying as extremist any one who is critical of the administration:
Rightwing extremists are harnessing this historical election as a recruitment tool. Many rightwing extremists are antagonistic toward the new presidential administration and its perceived stance on a range of issues, including immigration and citizenship, the expansion of social programs to minorities, and restrictions on firearms ownership and use.
That's not what they mean, you say, and I hope not. But this is a bulletin to law enforcement agencies across the country. How could an agency possibly respond to it than to conclude it is being asked to monitor right wing political groups.
The report could have been written by that noted neurophysiologist Janeane Garafolo as part of her enmerging limbic brain theory. (Physiognomy can't be far behind.)
Of course, any agency during any administration can put out a piece of crap like this. What is disturbing is Janet Napolitano's defense of it.
