Thomas More Law Center Files lawsuit against Homeland Security Secretary Napolitano

We will have to watch this one...

ANN ARBOR, MI – The Thomas More Law Center, a national public interest law firm based in Ann Arbor, Michigan, announced that yesterday evening it filed a federal lawsuit against Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano. The lawsuit claims that her Department’s “Rightwing Extremism Policy,” as reflected in the recently publicized Intelligence Assessment, “Rightwing Extremism: Current Economic and Political Climate Fueling Resurgence in Radicalization and Recruitment,” violates the civil liberties of combat veterans as well as American citizens by targeting them for disfavored treatment on account of their political beliefs.

Napolitano tried to blunt the public furor over the Report by a half-hearted apology to veterans, but she left out of her apology all of the other Americans her Department has targeted because of their political beliefs. In fact, officials in DHS now admit that their internal office of civil liberties objected to the language in the extremism report, but the Department issued it anyway.

There is quite a bit to read on this at the site of the Thomas More Law Center, including a copy of the complaint in PDF. Go read: Napolitano is Lying to Americans About Her Department’s Rightwing Extremism Report; TMLC Files Suit

Of all of the civil rights law centers out there, the Thomas More Law Center is among the most courageous. They take on the most controversial, and more importantly, the issues that form the bedrock of religious and political freedoms. The TMLC does not wait around to see what gets traction in the msm (main stream media) instead, like a righteous pit bull (If there were such a thing. lol) they pounce. It is truly gratifying in this age of lukewarm milque•toast
to see such tenacity in action. For those reasons, Christians/Patriots should strongly support the TMLC!
