The Department of Homeland Security has stepped back for the past two years from conducting its own intelligence and analysis of home-grown extremism, according to current and former department officials, even though law enforcement and civil rights experts have warned of rising extremist threats.
The decision to reduce the department’s role was provoked by conservative criticism of an intelligence report on “Rightwing Extremism” issued four months into the Obama administration, the officials said. The report warned that the poor economy and Obama’s election could stir “violent radicalization,” but it was pilloried as an attack on conservative ideologies, including opponents of abortion and immigration.
Since the vast majority of our domestic terrorists are right-wingers of various stripes, it appears that being one IOKIYAR and you are free to continue as long as you confine your terrorist crimes to killing women's health providers and godless commie fuck libruls.
As long as the public is not warned and the terrorist acts by crazed right-wingers are not reported as such, the only harm to Repug election chances come from their own detrimental policies towards average Americans which are rarely reported as such.
Take your fingers outta yer ears, America. There's nothing bad to hear any more. The right wing has fixed it.
