Napolitano in 2009: Right Wing Extremist Report; Napolitano in 2011: Silent

To call this a double standard would be a slap in the face to double standards. In 2009, at the dawn of the Tea Party movement, a DHS document was leaked that focused on right wing extremism. It profiled (yes, profiled) individuals and groups that Janet Napolitano's Department identified as a terrorist threat. On April 15, 2009, CNN posted a story entitled, 'Napolitano defends report on right-wing extremist groups.' A photo at the top of the article showed a crowd of people in front of the Capitol holding Nazi flags. Two years later, the American Nazi Party endorsed the increasingly violent (and very left-wing) Occupy Wall Street protests.

Via CNN in 2009:
The Department of Homeland Security will never monitor ideology or political beliefs, the head of the agency said Wednesday, responding to criticism of a recent report on right-wing extremist groups.

"Let me be very clear: We monitor the risks of violent extremism taking root here in the United States," Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano said in a written statement.

"We don't have the luxury of focusing our efforts on one group; we must protect the country from terrorism whether foreign or homegrown and regardless of the ideology that motivates its violence."

The report, "Right-wing Extremism: Current Economic and Political Climate Fueling Resurgence in Radicalization and Recruitment," said right-wing extremist groups may be using the recession and the election of the nation's first African-American president to recruit members.

The report, which was prepared in coordination with the FBI, was published last week. It was distributed to federal, state and local law enforcement officials. Mainstream media picked up the story after it was reported by conservative bloggers.

Though the nine-page report said it had "no specific information that domestic right-wing terrorists are currently planning acts of violence," it said real-estate foreclosures, unemployment and tight credit "could create a fertile recruiting environment for right-wing extremists and even result in confrontations between such groups and government authorities similar to those in the past."

The report compared the current climate with that of the 1990s, saying a recession, criticism over outsourcing of jobs and a perceived threat to U.S. power at that time fueled a resurgence of right-wing extremism.

However, it said, "Despite similarities to the climate of the 1990s, the threat posed by lone wolves and small terrorist cells is more pronounced than in past years."
Two years later, the OWS movement seems to have thousands of 'lone wolves' who have been arrested all across the country. There has been significant amounts of violent crime, to include rape and murder. It's also safe to say that the movement is wrought with derelicts who, in fact, are terrorists. Yet, the entire Obama administration - including Napolitano - remains virtually silent.

That brings us to the latest incident the OWS movement has to be proud of - terrorizing small children who were trying to get to school.

Send me an email if you spot a DHS Report on Left-wing Extremism. I'll be here, holding my breath.
