Domestic Extremism Lexicon

If you disagree with any federal government policy or program, you most likely qualify as a domestic extremist.

A group within the Department of Homeland Security created and leaked a "Domestic Extremism Lexicon" that covers ideologies across the spectrum. If you have strong views on abortion, animal rights, border security, homosexuality, ethnicity, environmentalism, patriotism, gun rights, taxation, war, etc., there's an extremist definition for you.

The report was "retracted" by the Department claiming it was issued by a maverick group within the agency. House Republicans, not to be typically silent on issues like this, asked Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano for details on how and why the report was compiled.

The definitions in the Lexicon are politically slanted to poison the law enforcement community against millions of Americans who might be called out and who might identify themselves as political, social, and religious conservatives (tThough traditional left wing issues are also included).

The government bureaucrats seem to be setting up a government vs the people, not realizing they get their power and positions from the people. Another sign of a government going beyond its constitutional mandate.
