Obama Admin’s Dept of Homeland Sec. investigated pro-lifers

CNA has this with my emphases and comments.

Homeland Security assessed threat of pro-life rally in Wisconsin

Madison, Wis., Feb 10, 2010 / 07:33 pm (CNA).- The U.S. Department of Homeland Security conducted a “threat assessment” of a pro-life and pro-abortion activists [both] before a planned Wisconsin rally last year, yet later admitted that the groups in no way threatened national security.

Although the DHS has since destroyed its copies of the assessment, a local Wisconsin pro-life leader is criticizing the DHS effort as “an attempt by the Obama administration to silence pro-lifers.”

More of that story there.

  1. Sounds like some people in the Obama administration will have some splaining to do on judgment day. We suffer from Obama myopia.

    Yep, that’s our Janet! (Napolitano, Dir. of DHS) Keep an eye out for those dangerous, scary Pro-Lifers. Oh, and while you’re at it, keep an eye on those suspicious-looking Veterans returning home from the war zones..danger..Will Smith..danger.

    Janet was the one who also said that the ‘system’ worked when the crazed man with a bomb in his drawers tried to blow up the airplane and kill everyone on board plus whomever would have been on the ground as well. Pssst..Janet, the only system that worked that day was the brave soul who saw smoke on the airplane and leapt over the seats and tackled the guy and put the fire out!

    Middleton, WI police department was also in on this. They still have their copy of the report, but have refused to release it under a freedom of information request. A local attorney is suing to get access to the copy at the Middleton polic department.

  4. No surprise. A pseudo-Nero is in office – the wun – with the fire being the economy, so those who don’t agree with the self-worshiping liberals, including their pro-death position, are being setup for any excuse to get ‘em, all to make it appear within the “law.” Of course that’s within man’s corrupt law versus being in-line with God’s Law. “And they that sought my soul used violence. And they that sought evils to me spoke vain things, and studied deceits all the day long.” (Ps. 37:13)

    “…DHS destroys its copies of their investigation…”

    Baloney!

    There will be copies of this investigation stored in the National Archives because it is a government requirement. Any electronic copies are forever…they never go away.

    To be fair, they investigated the pro-aborts as well…

    Let’s face it, the modern state has a tendency to be paranoid about any gathering of people of any political persuasion. They do this sort of thing on everybody from civil-rights activists to Klan members to Communists. Heck, I’m probably in their files somewhere (I’ve been to my share of protests).

    There are grave reasons to be concerned about that Illinois car salesman’s activities, but this sort of thing is no more than it has been since the 50’s.
