Mcveighmugshot.jpgMemo to wingnuts: if you don’t want to look like a bunch of crazy right-wing extremists, it’s probably best not to criticize the federal government for keeping an eye on crazy right-wing extremists.

The Department of Homeland Security has…created a secret report that wasn’t supposed to be made public but has leaked out nonetheless. In it we see the same outrageous conclusions that “right-wing terrorists” are a danger in this country.

Outrageous! Where would they get that idea that terrorism is dangerous?

And notice the language here. "Secret report." "Leaked out." The Anchor Baby sees a dark conspiracy at work.

In Obama land, there are no coincidences. It is no coincidence that this report echoes Tea Party-bashing left-wing blogs (check this one out comparing the Tea Party movement to the Weather Underground!) and demonizes the very Americans who will be protesting in the thousands on Wednesday for the nationwide Tax Day Tea Party. 

See? It’s all a devious Janet Napolitano ploy, masterminded by David Axelrod, to make Teabaggers look bad. Makes perfect sense if you also believe Obama is a Manchurian Muslim who isn’t a US citizen and is going to send your kids to socialist re-education camps after taking away your guns, like the shooter in Pittsburgh did.

One final word from RedState.

We should all remember that in the 90s, while bin Laden and his al Qaeda network was growing strong, Bill Clinton’s intelligence services were running around the country all worried over the “militia” movement and proclaiming how much of a threat it was to the nation. It turned out, of course, that this fear was largely fictitious.

"Largely fictitious" because to these wackjobs, Tim McVeigh was an agent of Saddam and Eric Rudolph was a secular progressive trying to discredit the pro-life movement.

Weigel has more.
