Rightwing Extremists, You're on THE LIST

Recently here in Missouri it was discovered that... well for the sake of shortness start here:

The actual MIAC Report:

Well, all hell broke loose in Missouri over this leak. The Lt. Governor, Peter Kinder, issued a statement:

Action was taken:
Missouri House of Representatives Report:
Intelligence Agency Boss Replaced Amid Controversy

Missouri State Highway Patrol Superintendent Col. James Keathley on April 6 replaced the director of the Missouri Information Analysis Center in the wake of a controversial intelligence report the center issued that said members of ultra right-wing, anti-government militia groups tend to support fringe political parties and candidates. The report has upset some conservatives, including Republican Lt. Gov. Peter Kinder.

Keathley removed Van Godsey, a civilian patrol employee who had run MIAC since Republican former Gov. Matt Blunt created it. The new MIAC director is Lt. David Hall, a 16-year patrol veteran.

When the controversy erupted last month, Kinder called for the suspension of Department of Public Safety Director John Britt, whom Democratic Gov. Jay Nixon appointed shortly after taking office in January -- months after work on the report began. However, Britt, a former U.S. Secret Service agent, neither approved nor reviewed the report, which was signed off on by Godsey. New procedures have since been put in place to require the public safety director and the patrol superintendent to approve MIAC reports before they are released to law enforcement agencies.

Rush Limbaugh even reported about it:

Story #10: Missouri Highway Patrol Rescinds Militia Report

RUSH: Remember we told you not long ago that the state of Missouri had told the highway patrol that if you see a bumper sticker for a third-party political movement it's obviously a militia group and you gotta be worried, like anybody for Ron Paul or anybody for pro-life, or anybody NRA, and it caused an uproar, so "The Missouri Highway Patrol this week retracted a controversial report on militia activity and will change how such reports are reviewed before being distributed to law enforcement agencies. The Highway Patrol also will open an investigation into the origin of the report, which linked conservative groups with domestic terrorism and named former presidential candidates Ron Paul, Bob Barr and Chuck Baldwin," as dangerous reactionaries. "The Highway Patrol’s announcement followed a news conference in which Lt. Gov. Peter Kinder, a Republican, suggested putting the director of public safety on administrative leave and investigating how the report was produced." So the fur flew out there over this, and they've rescinded it.

Okay, it appears that that got resolved and other than incidents of Ron Paul people getting detained at the airport and a couple of bumper sticker situations, it was all going to go away. Yeah, right. I think everyone was still pretty suspicious because Jay Nixon was determined that he wasn't going to let it go ( ) and simply backed down on his public stance.

It's time to Wake Up America!! It just got uglier than we imagined it was. Posted today:


Here ya go, see for yourself:

If you've never written your representatives before, now would be a real good time to start. Ask your representatives & senators to be your voice and oppose the things that are ripping our Constitution to shreds.
