In light of the incident in Austin, Texas yesterday, liberal bloggers are foaming at the mouth to blame the “right wing” media and tea parties for what took place. Really? To take it a step further, they are now arguing as to whether or not to call it domestic terrorism.
Interesting, maybe they should ask their good ol’ buddy William Ayers if it was? Or their awesome people at ELF or PETA, I think they all know a tad more about domestic terrorism than do those who belong to Tea Parties!
Moving on…. in a clip from a fox news article:
DHS officials explicitly warned against the potential emergence of terrorist groups or “lone wolf extremists” in a report issued in April. The report, “Rightwing Extremism: Current Economic and Political Climate Fueling Resurgence in Radicalization and Recruitment,” found that while no specific threat existed, there was the potential for violence from extremists concerned about illegal immigration, abortion, increased federal power and restrictions on firearms.
Interesing! If the DHS identified “Rightwing Extremism” as above, then what is “Left Wing Extremism”? That there is a potential for violence from extremists concerned about not giving terrorist enough rights that Americans deserve, not being able to accuse everyone as being racist if you do not agree with nor conceed to what they want, not enough illegal immigration, not enough abortions, decreased federal power and not enough restrictions on firearms?
Domestic groups and state-sponsored cells and individuals have continued their espionage activities and the planning of terrorist actions against the U.S. government. Leftist extremists were responsible for three-fourths of the officially designated acts of terrorism in America in the 1980s. From an international perspective, of the 13,858 people who died between 1988 and 1998 in attacks committed by the 10 most active terrorist groups in the world, 74 percent were killed by leftist organizations.

“But how is this legal plunder to be identified? Quite simply. See if the law takes from some persons what belongs to them and gives it to other persons to whom it does not belong. See if the law benefits one citizen at the expense of another by doing what the citizen himself cannot do without committing a crime.”... “Now, legal plunder can be committed in an infinite number of ways. Thus we have an infinite number of plans for organizing it: tariffs, protection, benefits, subsidies, encouragements, progressive taxation, public schools, guaranteed jobs, guaranteed profits, minimum wages, a right to relief, a right to the tools of labor, free credit, and so on, and so on.” ― Frédéric Bastiat, The Law
