Should Homeland Security consider Right Wing extremists in this country security threats? Duh!

This from an excellent Huffington Post article written by Caroline Myss:

These Republicans have, in essence, raised a call to arms against their own countrymen and women during a time when this country continues to fight a war started by Republicans for bogus reasons, a fact which we must never forget. Representative Michele Bachman from Minnesota screamed to her constituents recently, "I want people in Minnesota armed and dangerous ... Having a revolution every now and then is a good thing."

Representative Steve King yelled, "Let's beat that other side to a pulp! Let's take them out. Let's chase them down."

As for Sarah Palin, our Republican Court Fool, here's a sweet quote from her: "In Alaska, you know what we do with people like that? We hunt 'em down and shoot 'em between the eyes." Note that she is busy trying to backtrack on that remark and a few others like, "Don't retreat, reload", saying that she was actually referring to "voting 'em out at the polls". What? Since when is "shoot 'em between the eyes" a slogan for inspiring voting? Is this woman insane or what? Or does she think we are? Or is she coming very close to committing sedition? I remind you that this nation is still at war and inciting acts of violence against the government while the nation is at war borders on sedition. This may not be an anti-war protest in its purest sense but at its core, the ambition to weaken this government is crystal clear.

Further, do I sense a threat in these words or am I just reading between the lines? Nope, I think the word "shoot," means exactly what it says. Is she rallying the troops and suggesting that people plan the murders of their opponents? Is she supporting the assassination of Senators or Congressmen and women who are on the opposing team or, even the President? Exactly what, in her hysterical, arrogant lunacy, is she saying? Her website instructs her fan base: Don't retreat, reload.

It appears at least that Federal agents in Michigan, Ohio, and Indiana are in agreement with the sentiments of this post since yesterday they launched a raid against a Christian militia group called the Hutaree.



Gee I wonder how long we have to wait before the Feds storm the Palin compound in Wasilla? 

And I hope Palin's reality show crew is there to capture the entire thing on film.  Now THAT would be must see TV!

    Unbelievable. If a comedian, a cartoon or someone else makes a statement, they are absolutely driven into the ground by Sarah et al. If she says something, she claims it is twisted, skewed or misinterpreted. Bullshit! We had to hear weeks and weeks about a Letterman joke, then calls for her firing, and yet she can call people to arms and doesn't need to retract her statements or the cross hairs on their districts. We had another round of stupidity when Family Guy aired an episode but telling people to reload, take aim, and take people out is absolutely ignored. BULLSHIT!

    I am truly surprised to see Carolyn Myss write a politcal article. She is a spiritual intuit and healer. She is correct, that the inciting of violence by people like Bachman and Palin makes everyone "else" a target to a nut.

    This is why everybody should write to Discovery and quote Sarah Palin’s own words to them. If she is seen as a liability, the TV show goes away. She is inciting domestic terrorism, plain and simple. Imagine how Discovery would look if indeed one of her followers takes Palin seriously and shoots the target of one of Palin’s reckless rants “between the eyes.”

    Palin’s conduct is unconscionable and beneath contempt. She is so incredibly vapid, I’m not sure that she truly means or even understands the things that she is saying, but she still bears responsibility for any of the ensuing violence which she is trying to foment. How long before someone is seriously wounded or even murdered? What should be our response to Palin then? What should be our response to Palin now?

    Gryphen, isn't it time you expose this woman? Let the whole world know what a fraud she is? Then she can slink off into obscurity to lick her wounds, and her screechy voice will never irritate our ears again.

    Sounds like a plan to me!!

    One, don't just write to the Discovery Channel, sign the petition at:

    http://www.thepetitionsite.com/21/boycott-the-discovery-channel-networks

    They almost 6,000 signers now. They need more.

    Secondly, go over to Mudflats and read today's readers' comments: seems that someone reported Sarah's Facebook rant to the FBI. Another reader turned Sarah's posting into Facebook as "domestic terrrorism."

    About time. Seems that Scary Sarah really went off the deep-end this time when using obvious code words to the base while supposedly discussing basketball. Unbelievable. Takes no imagination at all to see what she really means.

    Thirdly, Gryphen and others are right: something has to be done about this hate-mongering. HuffPo also has a great opinion piece reminding us about Timothy McVeigh and connecting his sense of victimhood to Sarah.

    THe high school color of Wassilia is Blood Red! There are BIG Red Warrior posters all over the School. Your visually swiming in blood red images all around the school. I think they have this depressing style of art work in there school to scare visiting sport team. The kids are programed to KILL, FIGHT, WIN, HIT THEM, TAKE THEM OUT OF THE GAME, EXT.

    This is a disfuntional system that we teach in America. Wassilla takes it to the estream, maybe because of all the far right big churchs that want the trobbled kids to take there disfuntional home life out on the sport field or gym.

    Kids that get this kind of programing early in life, just might like the Right Wing Extremist metality.

    After all, we need Warriers for the 7 mountain movement. SP is not only the tea party queen, she is using the tea party to advance the 7 mountain armagettin movement.

    To Sarah Palin, this is all a game and she is always the winner. Power is everything to her, and if she can influence somebody to take an action, she's in her glory, even if it's a negative action.

    The power to provoke any kind of response is so essential to her sense of self that she simply does not care what effect it produces.

    She is sick.

    Thank you thank you!!
    I hope investigations into Palin ARE seriously considered and followed up on. What is giving her a free pass on her words of violence and harm? If she were a man, and a Muslim, do you think she could get on a plane? She most certainly would be on a watch list. She is fanning flames of civil unrest, and it isn't civil at all. If she were a real leader she would be encouraging reconciliation, discussion, and ways to move forward. Instead there is a section of citizens who are enthralled with her implications for terrorism. She is fascinated with herself, misusing her popularity, and should be held accountable for her words and actions. Please!!!

    The "shoot 'em between the eyes" was satire in an Andy Borowitz column.

    The MSM doesn't
    help when they say "her star power" and "she's super star", they are just feeding her ego too. She gets a high when all the warriors are chanting her name and they live off her hate talk, because she is just like them full of hate and racism. How far do you think she would get being the nice loving christian women talking to the at their rallys?
    I blame all the people who know exactly who and what Sarah is and are keeping their mouth shut for whatever reason. And where the hell is Levi's book he was bragging about? Maybe a little money in his bank account to keep his mouth shut.

    Is there a link source to where Palin said "we shoot them between the eyes"? I had not heard that one yet. If true, she is even more disgusting than I already thought she was.

    Just asked for the source for that "shoot between the eyes" statement. Apparently, she didn't say that...it was from an Andy Borowitz satire. http://smirkingchimp.com/thread/andy_borowitz/27657/palin_warns_anyone_who_threatens_violence_is_in_my_crosshairsThe woman says enough stupid things in real life; we don't have to attribute things to her she didn't really say.

    SHe is VERY SICK! She plays the victum roll very well. You can tell that she has always had guys roll over backwards in heat to advance her political carrer.

    She is not a wolf in sheeps cloths.... I think she is more of a control drama energy slerper queen, that sucks the room dry of commonsence.

    Her image and personality on TV will mold to the right wing masses at every possible $ offer. As long as she can portry her godlyness and the people that watch her are good Americans she will continue her power trip and rather large cash flow.

    She is just getting started, and has the cunning to milk Amercans dry in her persuit of fame. THen she will go global with her devine 7 mountain ambishions.

    Federal authorities have arrested a Philadelphia man and charged him with threatening to kill House Minority Whip Eric Cantor (R-Va.) and his family.


    Norman Leboon will be charged with two federal counts: threatening to kill Cantor and interfere with his federal duties, and posting video online containing such threats. He is scheduled to appear in federal district court in Philadelphia on Monday afternoon.


    The arrest is the most serious in a string of threats of violence against lawmakers in wake of the divisive health care vote. At least 10 Democrats along with a handful of Republicans, including Cantor, reported threats of violence during the past week.


    “At this time, the congressman will have no further comment on this threat or the investigation, and asks that inquiries be directed to the Federal Bureau of Investigation,” Cantor spokesman Brad Dayspring said. “The congressman is deeply grateful for, and would like to dearly thank all local and federal law enforcement involved, including the Federal Bureau of Investigation, U.S. Attorney’s Office[s] in Virginia and Philadelphia, U.S. Capitol Police and the Henrico Police Department in Virginia.”


    In a video posted on YouTube, Leboon said Cantor was a "liar, you're a Lucifer, you're a pig, a greedy [expletive] pig." He also seemed to refer to a bullet found in Cantor’s office last week and said it will be placed in his head. Richmond Police had originally discounted the bullet as a stray. It is unclear whether the FBI will expand the investigation into the Richmond bullet.


    Leboon faces up to 15 years in prison if convicted of both charges.


    According to an FBI affidavit, the investigation moved swiftly. On March 26, the FBI’s San Francisco office got a copy of a YouTube video in which Leboon allegedly made threats to kill Cantor and his “cupcake evil wife.”


    The video makes reference to Cantor’s Judaism and also seemed to speak about bullet that was fired into his Richmond office.


    “Remember Eric at our judgment time, the final Yom Kippur has been given,” according to a transcript of the video in the affidavit. “You are a liar, you’re a Lucifer, you’re a pig, a greedy (expletive) pig, you’re an abomination, you receive my bullets in your office, remember they will be placed in your heads. You and your children are Lucifer’s abomination.”

    Who will step-up and reveal what they claim to be the truth to stop this nonesense? Is there really evidence that would discredit this trash? Are you just riding the wave to extend your own personaly fame and glory at the expense of all else? Do people have to DIE for you to step forward? At this rate it will not be long and when it starts it will be too late to discredit the spokes person....but then it may already be too late ...the Christian militias that have there beginings back in the early 1980s have their leader and are on the move.

    As for Willow: My bet is that she is only living the only life she knows....the Palin family values? ues.

    I want our Federal Government to absolutely consider them 'domestic terrorists' and I am referring to all the thus far known Repugnants who have already made seditious statements; Paylin, Bachmann, King, Cantor, DeMint, Perry, Rove, et al. They can TRY to backtrack their language, but nothing they say can hide the fact that they are 'inciting people to violence' which is against our laws. They need to pay the price for their criminal language, but we all know they won't. That's so infuriating!!!

    Cantor's little snit fit annoucenemt admonishing democrats for "politicizing" threats is exactly what he did, so how does this make him better than anyone else getting these threats and making them public?
    Yeah, the Laboon guy used you tube to threaten a lot of people. From what I've seen on the local news, he's certifiably insane and will be railroaded (justifiably) because of it, but will he be sane enough to stand trial?
    And he made many threats against Presidents Bush and Obama on You Tube, so why wasn't he called out until Cantor found the video?

    Willow is a tough kid--as in she has a lot of internal strength. I know this personally.

    I hope she finds a Democratic Sugar Daddy and writes a "Tell All" about Mommy Dearest as soon as possible. The DSD would have to have as least as much $ and power as MDSP...and in order for it to be "realistic," Willow would need to come clean on herself--she really hasn't picked her friends very well up to this point.

    I also betcha that the reason Willow isn't in a private Christian School is because she has dirt on her parents that she is using to fend off that possibility.
