DHS Secretary Thinks Right Wingers Pose Same Threat as Radical Islamists

If you’re an American conservative, you should know that the Department of Homeland Security views you as no different than ISIS terrorists in terms of the threat you pose.

DHS Secretary Jeh Johnson says so.

The Daily Caller reported:

DHS Secretary: Right-Wingers Pose Same Threat As Islamic Extremists

One month after the San Bernardino terrorist attack that left 14 innocent people dead, Department of Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson told advisors that right wing extremists pose just as much of a threat to the country as Islamic extremists.

Johnson made the comments during the Homeland Security Advisory Council’s (HSAC) January meeting. City of Austin Mayor Art Acevedo, whom Johnson appointed to HSAC, shifted the discussion to the threat of right-wing extremists, according to the official meeting minutes.

“Member Acevedo reminded the Council that the threat from right-wing extremists domestically is just as real as the threat from Islamic extremism,” the minutes state.

Johnson echoed the sentiment. “Secretary Johnson agreed and noted that CVE [Subcommittee on Combating Violent Extremism], by definition, is not solely focused on one religion,” the minutes state.

Another council member, Cardinal Point Strategies CEO Paul Goldenberg, joined the chorus.

“Member Goldenberg seconded Member Acevedo’s remarks and noted the importance of online sites in right wing extremist communities, not only in America but worldwide,” the minutes state.

The meeting was also attended by the co-chairs of HSAC’s Subcommittee on Combating Violent Extremism.

Have you noticed that this administration is more comfortable demonizing Americans than our nation’s enemies?

November can’t come soon enough.
