Retarded Politician of the Week
Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security, Janet Napolitano, is the recipient of the dubious honor of being Nairb's Retarded Politician of the Week.
Ms. Napolitano presides over the Department of Homeland Security, that federal agency charged with keeping us safe. "Safe from whom?" you might rightly ask. Well, apparently from those among us who are anti-abortion, pro-gun, anti-illegal immigration, dissatisfied with the corpus ingens that is our federal government, or are otherwise believers in limited government. This is evident from the DHS report (thanks, FreedomAlliance.org) labelling those of us who have such views as "extremists" to be watched. Ms. Napolitano has refused to apologize for this slander of a large percentage of American citizens or to withdraw the report.
Meanwhile, Ms. Napolitano and her cabal of extremist hunters have neglected the following threats to Americans:
ACORN, the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now. This group has been involved in: organizing harassment of AIG executives in Connecticut, disrupting Federal Reserve hearings, invading closed city council hearing in Chicago, storming another Chicago city council meeting, sending busloads of protesters to intimidate the mayor of Baltimore and his family. This is just the tip of the iceberg, the result of less than sixty seconds of Google searching.
Illegal immigration. Whether just migrants looking for work, drug traffickers, or islamic terrorists, DHS apparently is turning a blind eye to threats at the border. To DHS, a redneck with a shotgun is more of a threat than an islamic whack-job who wants to kill us all in the name of the Moon God and crosses freely over the border with Mexico. Not real enough? How about the quantifiable violence in American border states due to Mexican drug cartels? Again, Napolitano is more interested in the shotgun-toting redneck. Heck, Ms. Napolitano just told us that illegally entering the U.S. is not a crime. Read it here.
Domestic Jihadists. Islamic extremist groups have set up training camps across the U.S. These camps, in which hatred for the U.S. is preached alongside Islamic ideology, exist in fifteen states. Many of these are highly armed compounds. The Christian Action Network has released a DVD Homegrown Jihad on the subject, available here. What is Ms. Napolitano doing about this threat to America? Focusing on "right-wing extremists".
Street Gangs. Crips, Bloods, Mara Salvatrucha, Vice Lords, Gangster Disciples, Latin Kings, Nortenos, etc. Need I say more? Every state has an infestation of street gangs which correlates with gang violence. Street gangs have also infiltrated the military to learn tactics for offensive use against law enforcement. Street gangs are probably the biggest threat to domestic security, yet Ms. Napolitano again focuses on "right-wing extremists".
I submit that Ms. Napolitano, who coincidentally bears a resemblance to another Janet famous for attacking "right-wing extremists", former Clintonista Attorney General Janet Reno, has a political motive for her obsession with "right-wing extremists". "Right-wing extremists" will likely never be accused of voting Democratic, while members of ACORN, illegal immigrants, homegrown Islamic whackos, and minorities involved in street gangs can reliably be counted on to support anything that the Second Carter Administration of Braaaack Obummer wants. It is a safe political move to attack those of us who do not agree with the Obummer Socialist Steamroller.
Congratulations, Secretary Napolitano. You are the Retarded Politician of the Week.
