You probably heard about this already:
The suspect in Wednesday’s shooting at the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum is James von Brunn, an 88-year-old white supremacist from Maryland, two law enforcement officials told CNN.
How many acts of right-wing terrorism have to occur before DHS is allowed to start keeping track of it?
I really don’t get the conservative reaction to the original DHS pronouncement. No one is trying to lump angry Red State commenters in with honest-to-God terrorists…except, weirdly enough, the Red State commenters themselves.
There are crazy people out there shooting up abortion clinics and Holocaust museums. These people identify with causes normally described as right-wing. Deal with it. Tea bag away to your heart’s content. It’s not til you start plotting to kill people that DHS should take an interest. If anyone starts spying on you prior to that, then I, the ACLU, and dirty hippies everywhere will support your grievances.
Update. Here’s some stuff the guy wrote (edit: and someone else posted) at Free Republic via google cache. (Free Republic has now pulled the thread.) But, no that doesn’t mean I think all Freepers should be investigated.
