Among The Many And Growing Concerns…

04 June 2014 @ 21:23

A report in Monday’s Los Angeles Times, cited by Serr8d in the Comments section of a post by Jeff Goldstein, prompts me to raise a few concerns.

First, highlights from the report, written by Timothy Phelps:

Atty. Gen. Eric H. Holder, Jr. on Monday announced the creation of a task force within the Justice Department to combat an “escalating danger” from “homegrown” terrorists within the United States.

The Justice Department, in a news release accompanying Holder’s weekly video address, cited a Congressional Research Service report last year that said domestic terrorists were responsible for more than two dozen incidents in the U.S. since 9/11.

Holder, in the video, cited the Boston Marathon bombings last year and shootings at Fort Hood in 2009 and 2014 as examples of “the danger we face from these homegrown threats.”

The task force will chiefly comprise leaders from the FBI, the Justice Department’s National Security Division and U.S. Attorneys. Called the Domestic Terrorism Executive Committee, it is a recreation of a task force formed by former Atty. Gen. Janet Reno after the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing. The task force fell into disuse after 9/11.

Though the original task force, which was little known, focused mainly on right-wing zealots, Holder’s version is aimed at U.S. citizens or visitors radicalized via the Internet. Holder said the government will continue to fight terrorists abroad.

“But we also must concern ourselves with a different type of threat. We face an escalating danger from self-radicalized individuals within our own borders,” he said.

The most obvious concern is one that I’m sure you share: will Holder use this task force to pursue people like us, who the Left In America has demonized repeatedly as ‘extremists’ and ‘terrorists’?  I don’t think any of us would be surprised if he did.

Eric Holder performs the same function for ‘Barack Hussein Obama’ that people like Beria performed for Stalin and Himmler for Hitler — users of the Legal Powers of the government to silence the voices raised in opposition to their Despotic Regimes.  Of course, unlike the Soviets and Nazis, I doubt that the silencing performed by Holder and his minions will involve murder.

I’m also concerned that when [not ‘if’] this happens, we will find ourselves unprepared to be able to respond in an effective way.

If the Left In America is successful at shutting us down on the Internet, do we have an alternate form of communication we can utilize to keep-up our modern version of the Committees Of Correspondence?

If we don’t, shouldn’t we be planning one? As it did for the American Colonists, our strength is lies in a unified front of ‘colonies’ opposing the Tyrant ‘King’ and his ‘Parliament’.
