The DHS document is an acknowledgment that, nearly 20 years after 9/11, the new terrorist threat comes largely from within"and not as much from jihadists as from the extreme right. www.theatlantic.com

All 23 living down in Alabama? This isn't the 1960's. Who cares about race anymore?

Where are the Republicans and Right-wing media who condemned Obama when a similar DHS report was released in 2009?

From the item below:

Remember in 2009, right at the start of the Obama era, when then-Secretary of Department of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano issued a report entitled: "Right-wing Extremism: Current Economic and Political Climate Fueling Resurgence in Radicalization and Recruitment"? The report was truly prescient. It alerted us to the rise of right-wing extremism, such as from white supremacist groups, and warned that unchecked, it could lead to violence.

How did Republicans respond? They went ballistic attacking the report. John Boehner was especially upset that Napolitano would use the term "terrorist" to "describe American citizens who disagree with the direction Washington Democrats are taking our nation," adding, "using such broad-based generalizations about the American people is simply outrageous."
