Civil rights: ‘Use ’em or lose ’em’
Columnist launches effort challenging gov’s redefinition of ‘terrorist’


WND columnist Janet Porter is warning Americans if they want to keep their civil rights, they’d better be using them right now.

Porter in her newest column took on the issue of the recent “extremist” report from the Department of Homeland Security.

The federal agency’s report is called “Rightwing Extremism: Current Economic and Political Climate Fueling Resurgence in Radicalization and Recruitment.”

It already has generated a lawsuit by talk radio host Michael Savage and multiple calls for Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano to be removed.
According to the federal government, characteristics of members of the suspect group of people include those who:

Oppose restrictions on firearms

Oppose lax immigration

Oppose the policies of President Obama regarding immigration, citizenship and the expansion of social programs

Oppose continuation of free trade agreements

Oppose same-sex marriage

Has paraonia of foreign regimes

Fear Communist regimes

Oppose one world government

Bemoan the decline of U.S. stature in the world

Is upset with the loss of U.S. manufacturing jobs to China and India
Porter wrote, “The only way we can keep our freedoms is if we’ll use them – now.”

“One thing’s for sure – we aren’t going to stand by while they profile good, law-abiding citizens as terrorists and take away constitutional freedoms,” she wrote.

“Therefore, we, the law-abiding citizens of America, demand:

“The resignation or removal of DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano for her partisan political profiling of veterans and conservatives and her abuse of power.

“An apology from President Barack Obama to ALL Americans for his administration’s call for domestic spying.

“The immediate retraction of the “Rightwing Extremism” report for labeling law-abiding citizens as “terrorists” because of their political views.”

“If you’d like to help sound the alarm before you’re monitored as a potential terrorist, please help. Go to and click the first blinking alert to fight “hate crimes” and click the link to to help us place a newspaper ad and sign the petition to fight the new definition of “terrorist,” she said.

“DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano has labeled law-abiding citizens as ‘right-wing extremists’ and potential ‘terrorists’ … and has instructed state and local law enforcement to monitor, investigate and ‘report information concerning suspicious or criminal activity to DHS and the FBI,'” she wrote.

Under the DHS plan, she said, among those who would be listed as terrorists would be:

George Washington (military veteran and gun owner)
Mother Teresa (pro-life)
Ronald Reagan (pro-life and staunch advocate for less government), and
The pope (supports life and traditional marriage)
