Remember the controversy in April when someone leaked a report from the Department of Homeland Security warning against the threat of right-wing extremism and domestic terrorism? Fox News, for example, reported that the intelligence document was aimed at Republicans — and military veterans.

Look at the report yourself (using the pdf link above). It warns specifically against “Threats from white supremacist and violent antigovernment groups.” A bit later, the DHS report says:

Anti-Semitic extremists attribute these losses to a deliberate conspiracy conducted by a cabal of Jewish “financial elites.”

The report also noted “white supremacists’ longstanding exploitation of social issues such as abortion.”

Within the last two weeks, a radical anti-abortion advocate gunned down a Wichita, Kansas doctor outside a church — and then warned that more violence would be forthcoming so long as abortion is legal.

Today, a neo-Nazi opened fire with a rifle inside the Holocaust Museum in DC. He killed a security guard after firing up to 5 shots. Fox:

Law enforcement officials identified the suspect to FOX News as James W. Von Brunn, who has a history of virulent racism, ties to white supremacy groups and a criminal record that includes an attempt to take members of the Federal Reserve board hostage,

So, it appears as if DHS was on to something.
