*Are you afraid that the government is plotting to confiscate your firearms?

*Do you believe the economy is about to collapse and the government will soon declare martial law?

*Do you display an unusual number of political and/or ideological bumper stickers on your car?

If you answered yes to any of the above questions, you may be an anti-government extremist (a.k.a. domestic terrorist) in the eyes of the police.

As such, you are now viewed as a greater threat to America than ISIS or al Qaeda.

Let that sink in a moment.

If you believe in and exercise your rights under the Constitution (namely, your right to speak freely, worship freely, associate with like-minded individuals who share your political views, criticize the government, own a weapon, demand a warrant before being questioned or searched, or any other activity viewed as potentially anti-government, racist, bigoted, anarchic or sovereign), you have just been promoted to the top of the government's terrorism watch list.

I assure you I'm not making this stuff up.

Police agencies now believe the "main terrorist threat in the United States is not from violent Muslim extremists, but from right-wing extremists."

So what is the government doing about these so-called terrorists?

The government is going to war.

Again.

Only this time, it has declared war against so-called American "extremists."

Under the guise of fighting violent extremism "in all of its forms and manifestations" in cities and communities across the world, the Obama administration has agreed to partner with the United Nations to take part in its Strong Cities Network program.

Working with the UN, the federal government will train local police agencies across America in how to identify, fight and prevent extremism, as well as address intolerance within their communities, using all of the resources at their disposal.
