"Extreme" misinformation

Local blogger Maggie Thurber recently wrote an article in the Toledo Free Press, and completely mischaracterized the findings of a Department of Homeland Security report on right-wing extremists.

"I’m proud the government thinks I’m a right wing extremist. When believing in the Constitution, especially the 10th Amendment, gets a person labeled an “extremist,” we should wear that badge with honor - and then ask ourselves two questions: 1) Since when is a belief in the Constitution a prerequisite for being named an “extremist” and 2) Why isn’t everyone clamoring to be one?

Then there is the issue of immigration. If you, like me, believe that people should come into the country legally - following the laws duly established for such entry - you’re an extremist as well. Yes, the Department of Homeland Security thinks that people who support the laws of the nation and the “security” of our borders are “extremists.”

You just can’t make up this kind of stuff.

Apparently, you CAN make up this kind of stuff--since none of it's in the report. That's right, you won't find anything about "believing in the Constitution" or "believing that people should come into the country legally" or "supporting the laws of the nation". Instead, the ACTUAL focus of the DHS report was "rightwing extremist activity, specifically the white supremacist and militia movements".

The goal of the DHS report was to provide a "greater understanding of the phenomenon of violent radicalization in the United States", and focuses on "white supremacist and violent antigovernment groups". The kind that led to the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing.

It's odd that Thurber would willingly group herself with these kinds of violent groups.

LMAO...could you guys at least try and stay on the same page?

According to dogboy....anyone who attended a tea party is a right wing extremist.....and a racist...

Dont try and backpeddle now .....that ship has sailed...

“Political correctness is a doctrine, fostered by a delusional, illogical minority, and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.”

How about a definition of 'right wing extremist'? Anyone who doesn't kowtow to "The One"?

"How about a definition of 'right wing extremist'? Anyone who doesn't kowtow to "The One"?

Is that what YOU think a right-wing extremist is?

Ha!

I was drinking my morning coffee while reading the comments and watching Maggie to show up and read Pink Turkey the riot act, then I stumble right into this gem:

Fear Not. The Magic Negro shall save the world.

I have snorted my coffee and am laughing and choking all over the place. Not a pretty site.

Remember the old magic eight ball? Is it just my perverted sense of humor, or is anyone else seeing racially insensitive and politically incorrect images of The Anointed One consulting His magic eight ball while seated in the Oval Office while Biden stands behind Him, rubbing His Head for luck?

Among other things like "mayor magazine" and such, Im sure Carty uses a magic 8 ball. He tried mood rings, but they kept turning colors so fast they just burnt his finger, so he hadda stop

The white supremacist extremist beacon at the 125 S. Superior Street Fort Apache will continue as a out-post of hate, of exclusion, of subliminal race bating. Just ax their leader Rush. Oh by the way how many minorities work at this inner city station?

When is the last time you posted ANYTHING that didnt have to do with your anti-WSPD hatefest?

Good Lord man - change the channel and get along with your life!!

Our leader Rush?? Hell, most of us conservatives out here have jobs!! We couldnt listen to Rush if we'd want to!!

I'm going to listen even MORE to WSPD than I already do, thanks to "herr puppschen".

G-man, Darkseid, Madjack, Billy and others, just trash talk since November 4, 2008.

Billy, since when did only conservatives have jobs? Sometimes you just say silly stuff. Do you think the police who just got laid off were all liberals? What does conservatism have to do with whether or not you have a job in this economic climate? Just silly trash talk.

As usual, you took my comment out of context and bent it to what you wanted it to say. (and she has the audacity to call other people revisionists!!)

I wasnt addressing you anyway, so please slither back under your rock and take care of your own back yard. It'll probably keep the rest of the people of toledo a bit safer tonight if you do.

be safer tonight and every other night when the silly trash talk stops. Silly Bill, quit trying to rev up the gang with the silly statement, "(and she has the audacity to call other people revisionists!!).

No, I'm not gonna say it and you can't make me. You cannot tempt me Billy, so just don't even try to get me started.

But both my statements are true.

Now go back home and mind the kids.

Carty and a mood ring! Ha!Ha!Ha! That's hot!

He's lucky the stupid thing didn't develop some kind of psychic short circuit and fry his finger off.

Or, during a 'business' meeting, the ring turns a brand new color not found in nature or government signage and gets Carty a record in the Guinness Book.
