Feds identify 2nd Amendment activists as terrorists in Ohio drill

On Thursday, the Ohio National Guard 52nd Civil Support Unit descended upon the sleepy berg of Portsmouth to run a mock disaster drill. In this case, they practiced their response to the potential release of a chemical, biological or radiological weapon.

The exercise was overseen by the Ohio Emergency Management Agency. In addition to the National Guard, local police and fire departments were also involved.

While such terror drills have become somewhat commonplace since the 9/11 attacks, this one included a telling and rather frightening twist...

WSAZ reported: "The make-believe scenario is timely. Two school employees who are disgruntled over the government's interpretation of the Second Amendment, plot to use chemical, biological and radiological agents against members of the local community."

Angry yet?

No?

Then see what this public official had to say...

Portsmouth Fire Chief Bill Raison told the Portsmouth Daily Times:

"I think sometimes we tend to think of terrorism as just international terrorism. What's the likelihood that's coming to Portsmouth, Ohio? Most people think it's not very likely. But we forget that there's a lot of domestic terrorism. There's organizations and things that go on within the United States that can be every bit as devastating as the international terrorism is."

Really?

Where would someone get such an idea?

Perhaps, from Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Janet Napolitano who has described gun owners and veterans of the Iraq and Afghanistan wars as potential terrorists.

In April 2009, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) issued a report entitled "Rightwing Extremism: Current Economic and Political Climate Fueling Resurgence in Radicalization and Recruitment."

The report claimed that "rightwing extremism" is not limited to religious and racial hate groups but extends to "those that are mainly anti-government, rejecting federal authority in favor of state or local authority, or rejecting government authority entirely."

"It may include groups and individuals that are dedicated to a single issue, such as opposition to abortion or immigration," said the report.

That's right...according to the Obama administration anyone who believes that babies should be protected are just as dangerous as al Queda.

Read the entire DHS report...

Of course, if Napolitano was truly interested in stopping threats to the homeland, she could direct National Guard units to the U.S./Mexican border and stop the flow of illegal aliens, drug smugglers and human traffickers coming into this country country every single day.

However, it is painfully obvious that the Obama administration feels more threatened by men and women who have sworn an oath to protect this nation from tyrants, as well as by Americans who simply exercise and refuse to relinquish their Constitutional rights.

Every American, regardless of their political affiliation should be wary of any president who seems to view our founding principles with such disdain.
