Homeland Security warns of lefty radicals, too
I had a post yesterday, you may recall, about a WARNING from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security regarding right-wing radicals, and I implied my concern that civil liberties might be trampled.
Well, it turns out that DHS has issued a warning about left-wing radicals, too. But the piece from the conservative Washington Times to which I linked in yesterday’s post downplayed the lefty angle — presumably to stir up right-wing charges of ideological bias on the part of the Obama administration.
Steve Benen has more on the matter HERE.
UPDATE: It says HERE that the DHS reports on right-wing and left-wing radicals were requested by the Bush administration but only recently completed.
UPDATE II: The conservatives who are now up in arms over the DHS reports on extremists were nowhere to be head when THIS came to light a few years ago.
