Chris Brunner writes: "The Alabama Department of Homeland Security (ALDHS), established in June of 2003, has recently constructed a website that defines Domestic Terrorists as those who oppose gun control and a strong federal government.
"Under the heading 'Anti-Government Groups', the site displays a flag that is widely considered one of the first symbols of American patriotism and reads, 'In general, these terrorists claim that the U.S. government is infringing on their individual rights, and/or that the government's policies are criminal and immoral. Such groups may hold that the current government is violating the basic principles laid out by the U.S. Constitution. . . .'
"While Anarchism is defined by a lack state control and Communism is a maximization state control, two polar opposite concepts, the page that follows reads, 'Anarchists groups are the 21st Century’s version of left wing or communist groups of the last. Anarchists believe that any government or organization that has power over others…will eventually become corrupt and abusive.'"
Uh oh. I happen to have met some Anarchists and Constitutionalists while in Alabama. I suppose I should just be glad I came out alive.
