In my article G20 Madness I noted the folly of a policy that can only fulfill its promise to pump money into the economy by first siphoning it out of the economy through forced confiscation of private property. More recently reading Michael Gaddy’s article We Are the “Enemy of the State” on LewRockwell.com, I am reminded that these redistribution plans simply invoke an old American tradition, extending as far back as the union’s theft of land belonging to the native Indians. Gaddy told that story with none of the sugar with which certain “conservatives” I know (and who are, in every other case, opposed to the forcible redistribution of wealth) are prone to coat those imperial conquests.
But Native Americans are no longer enemies of the state for opposing federal tyranny. Instead, writes Michael Gaddy,
“The Department of Homeland Security (DHS), The Missouri Militia Report and Virginia’s Homegrown Terrorism Report have unleashed an attack designed to demonize and dehumanize opponents of tyranny. The unclassified lists of those viewed as potential threats and terrorists includes opponents of abortion, groups opposed to illegal immigration, third-party political supporters, supporters of the Second Amendment, those stockpiling food, water, and ammunition, constitutionalists, veterans, critics of the United Nations and One World Government, and anyone fitting the "Right-Wing Extremist" profile.
Conspicuous in its absence in DHS’s report is any mention of Maoists, Marxists, Leninists, Stalinists, Trotskyites, or National Socialists as a terror threat. In short, our government exhibits no fear of socialism/fascism. It only fears those who would hold it accountable to the Constitution and rule of law.
What we know from the Department of Homeland Security and its Fusion Centers, now located in at least 25 states, concerning whom the state views as its enemies, is alarming indeed. What should be of even greater concern is what we don’t know that is contained in the classified section of their reports to LE agencies around the country. Information is classified to keep information from the enemy; why is the American public not allowed to see who else this government considers to be its enemy and how it intends to deal with the problem?”
