Domestic Terrorism

There's really no other way to describe it, and for the eight long years of the BFEE it was dismissed, pooh-poohed, conspiracy-theory-ized and denied. With the connivance of the wingnuttery and their agents in the CPM*.

The DHS Domestic Terrorism Report which came out in April (and which had been ordered by the Baby Doc Bush Maladminstration sometime earlier, but was cleverly released after Obama had taken office) was immediately attacked by the slavering pitbulls of the right, to the point where DHS Secretary Napolitano was forced to issue a half-hearted apology.

Sidebar: Fuck that shit, Janet. You ought to know that you don't show weakness to a mad dog.

Of course now that report was found to be right on the money, that we are (like no one has known this before) much more likely to be attacked by domestic terrorists than "foreign" terrorists.

See Domestic Terrorism in the US for the alarming statistic that between 1980 and 2000 -- a mere 20 years! -- 250 of the 335 terrorist acts in the US were carried out by American citizens!

See also Anti-Abortion Violence for a breakdown of the history of violence against women's clinics and reproductive health providers.

And yet Darth Cheney remains strangely silent on the issue of domestic terrorism. Why is that? He'd certainly be quick on the trigger if we were suddenly subjected to another "foreign" terrorist attack.

Could it be that The Dick actually knows some of these "lone nut" losers? Could it be that he doesn't want anyone looking into the "nonexistent" domestic terrorists?

Could it be that he is, in fact and in thought, a domestic terror enabler/crime boss himself?

I'm just asking...
