    We want Janet Napolitano FIRED!

    And just so it's perfectly clear, we DON'T want her to resign (either gracefully or in disgrace) and we DON'T want an apology, whether it's sincere or backhanded, like the 'slap-in-the-face' apology she gave the men and women who have wore a uniform and proudly served this country.

    We want Janet Napolitano FIRED... and we want it yesterday!

    You see, the problem is not just that Janet Napolitano's Department of Homeland Security (DHS) put together a so-called anti-terrorism security assessment that targets mainstream Americans as dangerous extremists.

    We're talking about people who believe that our government is too large and taxes us too much, or that the 2nd Amendment actually gives people the right to bear arms, or that our immigration laws should be strictly enforced or, horror of all horrors, that life actually begins at conception.

    And the problem is not simply that this so-called security assessment targets patriotic Americans - and they are talking about YOU - as "right wing extremists," or, as Peter Kirsanow, with the U.S. Commission on Human Rights put it:

    “That DHS report warning about all manner of ‘right-wing extremists’ could be considerably shortened if it simply alerted law-enforcement officials to be on the lookout for people from ‘small towns (who are) bitter (and) cling to guns or religion or antipathy toward people who aren’t like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment.’”

    The problem is that this is the same Janet Napolitano who just recently told us that horrendous, unspeakable acts committed by actual terrorists should be called “man-caused disasters."

    Specifically she told Der Spiegel:

    “In my speech, although I did not use the word 'terrorism,' I referred to 'man-caused' disasters. That is perhaps only a nuance, but it demonstrates that we want to move away from the politics of fear toward a policy of being prepared for all risks that can occur.”

    So... when it comes to actual acts or threats of terrorism against mainstream Americans, we should move beyond the "politics of fear."

    As much as I was when "Hanoi Jane" apologized. Not two cents worth of difference.

    Apology should not be accepted. The mere fact that it was said shows their mindset.
