A shocking Department of Homeland Security video that caused outrage yesterday after it depicted white Americans as the most likely terrorists only confirms that the federal government is now profiling middle class America as the main terror threat, something that becomes made abundantly clear when one studies the history of training manuals and other literature put out by the feds that identifies politically active US citizens as domestic extremists.
On the day that Janet Napolitano repeated rhetoric about “domestic terror” being the primary security threat, a newly released DHS video caused outrage by depicting white Americans as the most likely terrorists. The footage illustrated a number of scenarios encouraging people to report suspicious activity, and in almost every case the evildoer was a white American and in not one case was the terrorist a Muslim or an Arab.
Far from representing some superficial nod to political correctness, this is in fact a deliberate effort by the feds to characterize white, middle class, politically engaged Americans as domestic extremists. It’s all part of the agenda to frame dissent against big government as dangerous radicalism.
