UPDATE: http://hotair.com/archives/2009/04/17/dhs-ignored-civil-liberties-lawyers-warnings-on-report/ responds to those who BLAME BUSH for the DHS report. Read more here.
Our DHS Leader has embarked on her campaign to save face in the wake of serious blow back over the recent report that all conservatives should be labeled as right-wing extremists.
Why cannot government officials- ANY of them – just admit when they goofed and move on from there? Sorry, I just don’t buy their lame excuses. If a report like this goes out nationwide and she just ‘got briefed’ on it, I think she should reassess the policy of review. The language in the report was clearly vague and pointed at the right; what about the left? It was not just military, though veterans groups were clearly vocal about it.
Personally, I think it was done in lieu of the protests going on. Their way of trying to demonize and belittle those who felt strongly enough to do so.
The revolution is at hand. Will you be a leader or a follower?
