Is the U.S. Government Now Tracking ‘Right-Wing Extremists’? They say that if you are not copping flak then you are not over the target. Well Robert Spencer is certainly over the target of PC sensibilities when it comes to Islam, because he has been authoritatively pointing out for years that it is not a benign religion and is certainly not the “religion of peace.”
Now it seems the FBI keeps tabs on him. Every time he flies he is not allowed to check-in online, but must go the counter where there is a 20 minute delay involving mysterious delays and phone calls. He is banned from the UK for the crime of noting that Islam has doctrines calling for violence against unbelievers.
The hypothesis that a “right-wing extremist” identification now qualifies someone as a U.S. travel risk is not as preposterous as it might seem at first glance. (Again, note my UK ban.) For years, the Obama administration has shown a disturbing tendency to classify ordinary conservative Americans as terror threats.
The U.S. Army lists Evangelical Christianity, Catholicism, and “Islamophobia” as examples of religious extremism, along with Al Qaeda and Hamas.
A politically correct trifecta of the three main monotheistic religions. Statistical analysis regarding the frequency of violent behavior from those three groups be damned.
Ominously, the PC bureaucracy will now methodically follow it up:
If evangelical Christianity, Catholicism and “Islamophobia” were forms of “Religious Extremism” on par with al-Qaeda and Hamas, how long would it be before the Obama administration went to war against them?
It gets worse:
[C]onservative organizations are “hate groups” and Tea Party supporters are potentially dangerous extremists, according to educational materials the Obama administration is using to indoctrinate members of the nation’s armed forces … [even] the Founding Fathers are “extremists.”
So what is happening in the US, and how long before it happens in Australia?
The Southern Poverty Law Center, which is in the business of demonizing those who oppose its hard-Left agenda, falsely and libelously called me a “hate group leader” for my work exposing the motives and goals of jihad terrorists. Is there a dusty government office somewhere in Washington where my comings and goings — and those of others who have been smeared by the SPLC — are tracked in the Obama administration’s ongoing battle against “extremism”?
