Have You Ever Enjoyed Red Dawn?

They're circling the wagons, getting off on their victimhood even more than usual.

Mary Katherine Ham finds something to help define her group membership, satirizing what she imagines the Department of Homeland Security will now be asking when they come to get her.
Are you now reading or have you ever read 'Atlas Shrugged?'
Meanwhile, the Washington Times article about the American Legion complaining about the memo (and wouldja know, they even have time to interview at Tea Party organizer about his opinions) is chock full of glaring archetypal hypocrisy.

Rep. Lamar Smith of Texas, ranking Republican on the House Judiciary Committee:
"As far as I can tell, the only thing this report does do is attempt to stigmatize people who disagree with the president," Mr. Smith said.
David K. Rehbein, national commander of the American Legion:
"I think it is important for all of us to remember that Americans are not the enemy. The terrorists are."
Rep. Peter T. King of New York, the ranking Republican on the House Homeland Security Committee:
...said that while terrorism can come from many quarters, Homeland Security "should spend less time focusing on ideology and the exercise of free speech and association, and instead focus on specific, actionable intelligence to counter the terrorist threats to our nation."

Ron Paul has similar comments in the article, but in fairness, he's been saying that for years. The others have been busy vilifying those who oppose the president, comparing anti-war protesters to terrorists or Neville Chamberlain or what-have-you. Remember the 2002 elections?
