Homegrown Terrorism

According to a article, a report issued by the former heads of the 9/11 Commission says that President Obama is weak on homegrown terrorism. Actually, under the current administration, the terrorizing of American citizens by various branches of our Federal Gov't has continued unabated, as in former administrations (Republican and Democrat). That's the homegrown terrorism that concerns me the most, but I don't think it's what the report meant.

(I won't even mention the administration's siding with drug cartels and a foreign government against the citizens of

The problem is, that the administration may just use a report like this as an excuse to further crack down on Christians and other conservatives who pose no real terrorist threat. The actual terrorists shoot up army bases and plant explosives in metropolitan areas, and peaceful-but-politically-incorrect citizens take the heat.

The article quotes Robert Spencer of Jihad watch in a similar vein:

The Obama administration is trying to pretend that domestic terrorism is primarily a problem of 'right-wing' terrorists," Spencer contends. "So you have, for example, Mayor Bloomberg, who, of course, is not the Obama administration, but he reflects the same point of view, saying at the time of the Times Square car bombing before Faisal Shahzad was apprehended...that he thought this was probably somebody who was angry about ObamaCare. And this is the theme that the Obama administration wants to put forward in regard to terrorism domestically.

There is an old Chinese curse: "May you live in interesting times." Well, it looks as though politically, economically and socially, things are getting more and more interesting.
