House Homeland Security Committee Chairman Bennie Thompson has drawn up a resolution that would require DHS to explain to Congress why it created the warning about “right-wing” groups, reports Fox News. Thompson, a Mississippi Democrat, initially balked at a Republican request to probe the motives of DHS and said it was a “GOP stunt aimed at embarrassing the new administration,” an absurd accusation considering the fact the report was crafted during the Bush years and rehashed after Obama took office. In the wake of the exposure of the DHS’ “Rightwing Extremism: Current Economic and Political Climate Fueling Resurgence in Radicalization and Recruitment” another document surfaced on May 5. It is entitled the “Domestic Extremism Lexicon” and was issued by the Office of Intelligence and Analysis in late March. The lexicon lists definitions for key terms and phrases used by Homeland Security analysts “that addresses the nature and scope of the threat that domestic, non-Islamic extremism poses to the United States,” Audrey Hudson reported for the Washington Times on May 5. Democrats sitting on the House Homeland Security Committee are determined to block — at least partially — any investigation of the document’s origins. Republicans want documents and source material that supposedly justified the threat assessment, while Democrats merely want DHS to explain to Congress why it designated Second Amendment advocates, pro-life activists, and veterans as threats to the country. As with nearly everything in the district of criminals, the DHS report has turned into a partisan football to be used to score points and make the other side of the one party system look foolish. Republicans are not so much interested in getting to the bottom of the report as they are in using it to lambaste the Obama administration (while ignoring the fact the document was created during the Bush administration). Democrats want a perfunctory explanation from the DHS and then relegate the report off to the memory hole. In fact, it does not take a crack researcher to figure out where the source material and inspiration for the report came from — the Anti-Defamation League. Full Article Here. The article goes on to explain the author's reasoning for thinking the ADL is behind these reports. Sounds about right.
