Libertarians Are Terrorists, Says the State of Alabama

The Alabama Department of Homeland Security (ALDHS), established in June of 2003, has recently constructed a website that defines Domestic Terrorists as those who oppose gun control and a strong federal government.

Under the heading “Anti-Government Groups”, the site displays a flag that is widely considered one of the first symbols of American patriotism and reads, “In general, these terrorists claim that the U.S. government is infringing on their individual rights, and/or that the government's policies are criminal and immoral. Such groups may hold that the current government is violating the basic principles laid out by the U.S. Constitution…”

Labeling those that cherish personal freedom as being as terrorist is just showing their complete ignorance and inability to look all sides of an issue. I recieved a call from another candidate telling me that my blog Campaign Hellooo was disrespectful towards the other candidates in my district and I should take it down. When I said I was exercising free speech I was told I was bordering on terrorising the other candidates which of course spurs me to write more. Love your blog!

In ChrisBrunner.com's blog post (as originally reported by Dave Gallagher), Chris wanted you to see this:
This page states:
"Anti-government groups usually believe:
  • Gun Control = Enslavement

  • Constitution has been subverted

  • The U.S. has lost its sovereignty

Opposition to a strong federal government is not new. The first Continental Congress wrestled with this issue when they first created the “Articles of Confederation” before our present day Constitution. George Washington marched troops into Pennsylvania to uphold the power of the Federal Government to collect taxes. In fact, we fought a civil war over the issue of individual and states versus federal rights.

Today’s anti-government groups have their origins in the shock and outrage among a number of groups to include gun rights groups, tax protestors, and white supremacists over the government actions with the Branch Davidian religious cult at Waco and and white supremacist Randy Weaver at Ruby Ridge along with recent laws that limited gun ownership. A coalition of these groups called for the formation of “leaderless resistance” groups—the beginning of “unorganized militias”. Few people involved in this self styled “Patriot Movement” are criminals but there are some on the extreme fringe that are convinced that the Government has been subverted and that their freedoms must be aggressively defended to the point of attacks on our governing institutions.

In general, these terrorists claim that the U.S. government is infringing on their individual rights, and/or that the government's policies are criminal and immoral. Such groups may hold that the current government is violating the basic principles laid out by the U.S. Constitution and that a new world order is attempting to enslave humanity. Some groups also believe that the government and other organizations are transgressing the rule of God as described in the Bible. Some groups see themselves as separate nations within the United States, taking the initiative to establish their own laws and common-law courts.

Hi Jude,
Nice to see you stopping by and leaving a comment which I appreciate very much. I return the compliment.
Freedom of Speech is just another one of our Constitutional Rights that are being disregarded by our Government.
I suppose if the President won't honor our Constitutional Rights then no one else is going to, except maybe some of 'we the sheeple' who aren't slowly dieing of apathy.
Peace.
Carol

They have removed that site. It is no longer operating. I wish someone had taken a screen shot of it so I could see it. It would be interesting to see.

I am always a day late and a dollar short when it comes to things like this.

I am glad our fellow bloggers helped get the site shut down.
