How to spot a domestic terrorist

Between 2004 and 2007 the Department of Homeland Security, which has over 200,000 employees and a budget of over $50 billion, has doled out over $250 million to state and local governments for “fusion centers.”  These “fusion centers” exist to “collect local intelligence” to be used in defending against terrorism.  DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano calls these “fusion centers”:  “the centerpiece of state-local-federal intelligence-sharing.”

Some of these 250 plus million taxpayer dollars found their way to a “fusion center” called the Missouri Information Analysis Center (MIAC), which, according to its website, is:  “the mechanism to collect incident reports of suspicious activities to be evaluated and analyzed in an effort to identify potential trends or patterns of terrorist or criminal operations within the state of Missouri.”  

So MIAC thereafter deployed some of its taxpayer funding to commission a report called “The Modern Militia Movement.”  The report, which was circulated to the Missouri State Police,  compiled and identified the domestic terrorist profile.  I’m not sure what the report cost, but I’d sure love to know.  Please post the info if you have it.

So what is the profile of these “militia members”/domestic terrorists?

Among other things:

–“These groups are strong states’ rights advocates.”

–“This movement is strongly in opposition to the collection of federal income taxes.”

–“Militia members most commonly associate with 3rd party political groups. It is not uncommon for militia
members to display Constitution Party, Campaign for Liberty or Libertarian material. These members are usually supporters of former Presidential candidates Ron Paul, Chuck Baldwin, and Bob Barr.”

–“Militia members commonly display bumper stickers that contain anti-government rhetoric.”   

–“Anti-immigration and anti-abortion material may be displayed by (these) militia members.”

–They have a “Christian Identity. (A) religious ideology popular in extreme right wing circles.”

–According to MIAC, the Gadsden Flag is “the most common symbol displayed by militia members and organizations.”

So there you have it my fellow citizens. Please be on the look-out for these dangerous terrorists. 

But should you spot anyone who fits the description,  I recommend that you not bother reporting their suspicious activities to the folks at MIAC.  They’re probably overwhelmed already, pursuing the terrorists who are overrunning Missouri, and, besides, $250 million only goes so far. 

So as a public service, and in order to use our national resources effectively, we here at Billsblog are offering to help bring these dangerous terrorists to justice.  If you see any of the suspicious activities listed above, just report it to us here at Billsblog, and we’ll see that it gets passed along to the appropriate authorities.

What’s the Gasden Flag, you ask?  Here you go:
