The vaunted “Left-Wing Extremism” report

posted at 11:38 am on April 15, 2009 by Ed Morrissey

… is here, courtesy of Jake Tapper.  This is the report heralded by counter-critics of the DHS report on “right-wing extremism” that supposedly disproves political bias in the substance-free attack on conservative critics.  Except that the report on extremism of the Left is much different than the other DHS report, starting with specifics.  While the DHS report focusing on the Right expansively and generally indicted groups opposing abortion, illegal immigration, and federalism, this report instead focuses on actual and specific extremist groups — groups who have a long history of domestic terrorism and violence (page 9):

(U//FOUO) DHS/Office of Intelligence and Analysis defines leftwing extremists as groups or individuals who embrace radical elements of the anarchist, animal rights, or environmental movements and are often willing to violate the law to achieve their objectives. Many leftwing extremist groups are not hierarchically ordered with defined members, leaders, or chain of command structures but operate as loosely-connected underground movements composed of “lone wolves,” small cells, and splinter groups.

— (U//LES) Animal rights and environmental extremists seek to end the perceived abuse and suffering of animals and the degradation of the natural environment perpetrated by humans. They use non-violent and violent tactics that, at times, violate criminal law. Many of these extremists claim they are conducting these activities on behalf of two of the most active groups, the Animal Liberation Front and its sister organization, the Earth Liberation Front. Other prominent groups include Stop Huntingdon Animal Cruelty; and chapters within the Animal Defense League, and Earth First!.

— (U//FOUO) Anarchist extremists generally embrace a number of radical philosophical components of anticapitalist, antiglobalization, communist, socialist, and other movements. Anarchist groups seek abolition of social, political, and economic hierarchies, including Western-style governments and large business enterprises, and frequently advocate criminal actions of varying scale and scope to accomplish their goals. Anarchist extremist groups include entities within Crimethinc, the Ruckus Society, and Recreate 68.

In other words, it does not treat all animal-rights criticisms as indications of terrorist thought.  It fails to paint all opponents of free trade as potential national-security threats.  Global warming activism does not get treated in this instance as federalism does in the execrable DHS report on conservatives and libertarians.  In other words, in this report, the DHS actually focuses on threats, not becoming the Thought Police.

This report differs from the latest in another key way.  Instead of rambling on about how organizing for political change represents a threat to the US, this report focuses on the nature of potential attacks.  Their choices are interesting in and of themselves.  Instead of remarking on potentially violent threats from these groups, which have used violence in anti-globalization protests around the world, torching car dealerships for environmental causes, and destroying laboratories to free research animals, DHS mainly focuses on the threat of cyber attack from these groups.  In fact, that’s practically all it discusses, along with a specific list of targets that require protection, including the now-defunct Wachovia Bank.

DHS sees no potential for violence in groups with proven track records of violent terrorism?  Cyber attack is really the greatest threat we can see from Recreate 68, ELF, and ALF?  Really?

The differences between these two reports could not be more vast.  In one, DHS downplays the potential for violence from proven and existing violent groups.  In the other, DHS presumes violence from a wide range of mainstream political points of view without any evidence of a threat, any specific groups, and impugns millions of veterans as potential terrorists.  The people behind both of these reports should be fired, and Janet Napolitano should resign as DHS Secretary.

I cannot tell you the number of times that right-wing hate groups have destroyed labs here at Purdue. Or violently protested the fact we do Homeland Security research here.

I cannot tell you because the only groups that get violent, write hate mail, and make threatening phone calls to the university are LEFT-leaning organizations and folks.

Didn’t even see cybercrime mentioned.

How about something simple like

the damage totals by lefty groups and Righty groups.

Its interesting that initially Pres. Bush didnt think we needed another federal offshoot.

Should have trusted his instincts, but the fact remains that it took lefties to take advantage of it in targeting political or would be political opponents.

The left already has a tax-payer funded entity that really doesnt serve any purpose other than political

These are some strange waters……

Why is Tim McVeigh necessarily a right wing extremeist. Yeah, he hated government but philosophically he shared more with Fight Club than the far right. Some of his views regarding Iraq were far more aligned with the left. And oh, did I mention McVeigh was an athiest? Does that mean Allah or Hitchens are more inclined to blow up a Federal Building?

And do not get me wrong, I am not trying to malign those who rail against consumerism and degrading the male in society (which was the theme under Fight Club)…but equating McVeigh with the right is offensive too. McVeigh was a disgusting monster who deserved the death penalty and got it.

Mr. Joe on April 15, 2009 at 11:54 AM

So when the left said Bush would use DHS to make political attacks on opponents; they were simply engaging in projection, right?

The LeftWing report mentions that those groups use “direct action”. Those methods include vandalism, animal releases, property theft, cyber attacks, bombing, and arson.

So, out of that list, they spend the rest of the report talking about cyber attacks.

This isn’t really news to me but it is discouraging to see it in an official report of the federal government. I’ve know for years that I am personally the greatest threat to the planet ever known to exist. Don’t believe me?

I’m a white, male, baby boomer. I smoke cigarettes, own two guns and a four-wheel drive pickup truck. I moved from an inner city s**t-hole to the country and now commute 100 miles a day to work. I’ve never been in a union and never voted democrat. I enjoy listening to Rush and watching FOX news. I attended private Catholic schools right up through college. I fear the federal governments expansion and believe in state’s rights. I love God and my family and have never asked anyone for anything. Never got welfare or food stamps or any other hand out. I am pro-life, anti big government, and cherish my liberty and freedom. I vote in every election and don’t think people should vote if they don’t first inform themselves.

I could go on and on but I think you get the point. I am everything the liberal federal government fears. And the feeling is mutual.

Same as always. They thought Bush was going to do something, because they knew what they would do in his position. Every threat they claimed Bush posed was one they know they would pose.

Keyser-Soze on April 15, 2009 at 12:02 PM

Yes, it means that DHS is now a political tool of the Obama admisitration…and it’s doubtful it will be doing a very good job protecting us from the real terrorist threat, since I suspect it will go into overdrive monitoring the imaginary terrorist threat it sees in ordinary, conservative Americans. So, it’s really double-bad news.

AUINSC on April 15, 2009 at 12:06 PM

Paul Begala and Neil Cavuto.

Paul Begala spinning tax day tea partys like a whirling dervish. Neil Cavuto gets some good shots at Imus. Really if the Tea Partys are so insignificant why are the Democrats spending so much time trying to degrade American Protesters? I remember the Democrats stating during the Bush Administration, Dissent is Patriotic. What happened to that Democrat Talking Point?

All signs of the times we are in. The signs are beginning to thread themselves together. It is astounding that once relatively lucid, rational people, do not see that which is unfolding before them. Don’t get caught up in the hyperbole, stay focused on what is right and true. In the end, that is a winning formula. The problem is what that end may ultimately be. Our forbears did not get a chance to reap the true rewards of their sacrifice. The same may be said of us today. But take solace in the fact that our kids may be able to enjoy it… and learn… and pass it on to their descendants.

The key to the MSM strategy is to factor in with this equation that the mainstream American should be made to feel they are a freak if they harbor the idea that they can spend their money better than the Fed can.

It’s important to expose the entire equation.

As long as there was Timothy McVeigh…people will take this hook line and sinker. Grouping people like this, It isn’t right but it is a demon that is safe to latch on to and not be called a hater or a racist.

That doesn’t mean you don’t move forward with you opinions and let them be known. Stay true and you will come back stronger.

When you get that power back…don’t let the Tea Party end. That is our biggest failing.

Ex military maybe? After all the left is anti-military. Wasn’t there also something about him knowing somebody that maybe knew somebody that had a friend that was not out spoken anti-Christian? There you have it, ex military and may have know Christians. How can you possibly label anyone like that anything other then extreme right?

jmarcure on April 15, 2009 at 12:22 PM

In the other, DHS presumes violence from a wide range of mainstream political points of view without any evidence of a threat, any specific groups, and impugns millions of veterans as potential terrorists.

This nation and its “leadership” has become an abomination of American liberty and threatens the very existance of the constitutional rights of peacable dissent and the redress of grievences against an out of control government.

Dear President Obama
Janet Napolitano
Homeland Security

I am NOT at terrorist. I am a God-loving American who is among millions that are dissenting against the policies of our government that threatens our fiscal welfare. I DO NOT plan to take up arms against my government until they reach my front door ARMED to take my constitutional right to protest away. (be advised, the dog is armed too!)

It also fails to link the recruitment arm of these groups, such as extremists that actively recruit to ELF and ALF through PETA, and Green Peace. That couldn’t have anything to do with the amount of money that funnels from these groups into the campaign coffers and employment of family members of Democrats could it????? HMMMMM it seems as if there is a link…….

ZagChuck on April 15, 2009 at 12:27 PM

I didn’t see any mention of returning US military from Iraq or Afghanistan that are a threat to join left wing groups, or did I miss it?

Members of IVAW admit to having committed war crimes in the service. Wouldn’t that be a red flag for DHS?

BTW Limerick-my Army Guard unit traces its lineage all the way back to the 1st Minnesota. We’re still pretty proud of what they did at Gettysburg.

Articulating so plainly such a threat to our freedom is shocking, to say the least. But obviously MSM won’t cover it, unless forced to cover it by some other events. It’s going to take some showcasing of outrage in Congress to take the message over MSM’s heads. But where is the outrage over this? Are any of our reps raising hell about it in Congress?

Why do they officially divide “left-wing extremists” from “right-wing extremists”? How do you even consistently make that distinction? Why bother, unless you are trying to make some kind of political point?
“Left” and “Right” is pretty much an arbitrary distinction when you are talking about people screwed up enough to engage in terrorism. It’s like they collected all the credible threats, realized that they leaned heavily toward allies of the Democrats, and decided to whip up a “right-wing” version as some kind of cover.

Yuck.

misslizzi on April 15, 2009 at 3:16 PM

When the work on the report started doesn’t matter ONE WIT.

1) Government employees are largely Democrats, that’s a fact. Whether Bush was their boss or not, it’s easy to see bureaucrats at a federal agency writing something like this to get it through if a Dem won office.

2) Once the report was finished, it would have been reviewed by Janet herself or somebody she delegated that task to before it being released. Its release signifies her approval of it, whether directly or through a qualified approver.

When “civil unrest” is used to suspend the Constitution, this report will be used to pick who they go after.

PastorJon on April 15, 2009 at 3:23 PM

Left-wing extremism often has developed from working-class movements seeking in theory to eliminate, not preserve, class distinctions. Communism evolved from left-wing extremism. The threat from left-wing extremists did not die with the collapse of the Soviet Union, however. Domestic groups and state-sponsored cells and individuals have continued their espionage activities and the planning of terrorist actions against the U.S. government. Leftist extremists were responsible for three-fourths of the officially designated acts of terrorism in America in the 1980s. From an international perspective, of the 13,858 people who died between 1988 and 1998 in attacks committed by the 10 most active terrorist groups in the world, 74 percent were killed by leftist organizations.

Although the current domestic terrorist threat within the United States is focused on right-wing extremists and white supremacists, left-wing extremists are alive and well and
have several objectives.
