    If we can warn against against Islamic extremism without accusing all Muslims of being terrorists, what is the problem of warning against right-wing extremism?
    That is not an indictment of all people with conservative or right-wing views.

    The DHS should be concerned with extremists of all flavors.
    Remember the 2nd worst terrorists attack in US history was done by right wing extremists who were US veterans.

    We know that right wing extremist groups exist, and they've been on the rise for a number of years. That an economic downturn could fuel these groups and that violence could result is like, duh.

    What do you think? If there are objections to the DHS assessment (which was addressed to a specific audience--law enforcement agencies--not to you and me), what are they?

    Did you read the PDF? I do remember that but this report in my opinion is spread a lot wider than Fringe groups/people and hate groups. I have no problem warning against them. However this to me is a lot different.

    Here are two more articles:

    read the comments....a little scary

    Tim McVeigh (remember him?) was a disgruntled right wing extremist. He's floating somewhere in hell now.

    I'm having a hard time wondering why when the Department of HOMELAND SECURITY says the feds should be on the lookout for extremists, why this should fuel all these calls for paranoia.

    I guess we could all just stick our heads in the sand but then again, why the hell did Bush ever waste billions of $$ for Homeland Security in the first place? Shouldn't they be looking to head off any hate groups/extremists BEFORE they act?
    Your ignorance is painful to witness.....

    To clarify this report.. the DHS actually release a very similar report against the so-called 'left wing' extremists, too.
