Sam Prince as Chicken Little....again
Well I see that Sam Prince has donned his Chicken Little costume once again and is riding through the land screaming the sky is falling. (Check out his latest weird rant http://www.cairomessenger.com/ page 5.) Now we have gone from a socialist state to a fascist state and Big Brother is watching us all! I guess Sam Prince has conveniently forgotten the last eight years. Sam wrote “I have never been a fan of the Homeland Security Act. I believe that it greatly infringes on our freedoms and was nothing but a knee-jerk reaction to 9/11…” Why didn’t he fly into his rant during the last eight years when the Bush administration was trouncing the Constitution? Oh yea, it was his party that was in charge and only they love America and no one else. The rest of us are Terrorist loving Socialist.
Sam Prince believes it’s scary about the Rightwing Extremism report not being releasable to the public. As everyone knows a great many government reports are secret and not releasable to the general public. Why would we want enemy nations or terrorists to know our plans? We certainly don’t want Fox News blasting our plans all over the airwaves.
I have to disagree with his statement that the report is worthless. The report points to a government that is concerned with the safety of its citizens. At least this government is taking terrorism seriously; let’s not forget how the Bush administration disregarded the classified not to be released to the public President's Daily Brief report titled, “Osama Bin Laden to attack America.”
Sam Prince goes on to say the report “is full of conjecture with no facts to back up the conclusions drawn.” Nothing could be further from the truth. Page 3 has a paragraph titled Current Economic and Political Climate which has an example of rightwing extremism. It reads, “A recent example of the potential violence associated with a rise in rightwing extremism may be found in the shooting deaths of three police officers in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, on 4 April 2009. The alleged gunman’s reaction reportedly was influenced by his racist ideology and belief in antigovernment conspiracy theories related to gun confiscations, citizen detention camps, and a Jewish-controlled one world government.” I think our government should have someone watching out for rigthwing nuts like this gunman.
On page 5 under the paragraph titled Illegal Immigration the report shows an upswing in hate-oriented crimes against Hispanics over the past five years. It gives two examples of rightwing extremism. The first example is of six militia members in April 2007 who wanted to conduct machinegun attacks on Hispanics. The other example is of a Wyoming militia member who was planning to travel to the Mexican border and kill immigrants. Sam Prince may fancy himself as a rightwing extremist but I really don’t think he would condone the killing of innocent people. Would he?
Page 7 of the report has the paragraph titled Disgruntled Military Veterans. Sam Prince wants us to believe the report is about any returning veteran or any tea bagger that has a beef with the government. Again with the hysteria!! This report makes it very clear the type of veteran they are warning against is the likes of Timothy McVeigh. Remember Timothy McVeigh? Also after our invasion of Iraq the military dropped its standards for enlistment. The report notes members of the white supremacist movement joined the military to acquire combat experience and bring back their training to assist the members of their movement. Do we need the government watching these folks, you bet we do.
I would ask everyone to get a copy of this government report and read it. Don’t take Sam Prince’s opinion and please don’t take my opinion. Read the report and make up your own mind. Don’t let rightwing extremist be the ones to influence your views. Sam Prince says he wanted to be the poster boy for this report but one of his friends beat him to it. I have an idea for Sam, how about being the poster boy for Extreme Hysteria. Man is this guy fucked up like a soup sandwich!!!
