According to The Hill’s Blog Briefing Room, a conservative legal group has filed suit against Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Janet Napolitano and Attorney General Eric Holder over the DHS memo warning of the threat from “right wing extremists.” The group, the Ann Arbor, Michigan-based Thomas More Law Center, charges that the report targets certain people or groups for negative treatment based on their opinions on political issues.
The suit was filed on behalf of radio talk show host Michael Savage and the anti-abortion group Center for Bio-Ethical Reform. The fourteen-page suit can be read here.
The suit charges that the DHS report is an attempt to marginalize conservative opinions and opposition to the expansion of government that is taking place under President Obama.
It will be interesting to see how this turns out.
