Down Right Demonizing

Apr 16 2009

Congressman TED POE (TX-02) made the following statement in response to the Department of Homeland Securitys report on right wing extremism.

My office has already received several calls from individuals who are disappointed with the apparent demonization of people who disagree with the administration. The opinions reported by the Department of Homeland Security label folks as the radical right, including returning military and anyone advocating gun rights under the 2nd Amendment, Poe said. The Department of Homeland Security would do well to invest time and dollars to seek out those who terrorize American citizens and not those who defend our nation and support the Bill of Rights.
