72 Types Of Americans That Are Considered “Potential Terrorists” In Official Government Documents


By Michael Snyder

Are you a conservative, a libertarian, a Christian or a gun owner?  Are you opposed to abortion, globalism, Communism, illegal immigration, the United Nations or the New World Order?  Do you believe in conspiracy theories, do you believe that we are living in the “end times” or do you ever visit alternative news websites (such as this one)?

If you answered yes to any of those questions, you are a “potential terrorist” according to official U.S. government documents.

At one time, the term “terrorist” was used very narrowly.  The government applied that label to people like Osama bin Laden and other Islamic jihadists.  But now the Obama administration is removing all references to Islam from terror training materials, and instead the term “terrorist” is being applied to large groups of American citizens.

And if you are a “terrorist”, that means that you have no rights and the government can treat you just like it treats the terrorists that are being held at Guantanamo Bay.  So if you belong to a group of people that is now being referred to as “potential terrorists”, please don’t take it as a joke.  The first step to persecuting any group of people is to demonize them.  And right now large groups of peaceful, law-abiding citizens are being ruthlessly demonized.

Below is a list of 72 types of Americans that are considered to be “extremists” and “potential terrorists” in official U.S. government documents.  To see the original source document for each point, just click on the link.  As you can see, this list covers most of the country…

The groups of people in the list above are considered “problems” that need to be dealt with.  In some of the documents referenced above, members of the military are specifically warned not to have anything to do with such groups.

We are moving into a very dangerous time in American history.  You can now be considered a “potential terrorist” just because of your religious or political beliefs.  Free speech is becoming a thing of the past, and we are rapidly becoming an Orwellian society that is the exact opposite of what our founding fathers intended.

Please pray for the United States of America.  We definitely need it.

    I have seen some of the same items posted on government forums. What he has written isn’t complete BS or even tinfoil hattery (isn’t it funny how totalitarians constantly use the ‘insanity’ propaganda?). I agree that the compiler of the list should have cited the sources.

    People are too afraid to believe what’s going on until it has actually neared the point of no return… also historically predictable.

    Constantly spout the tired old Marxist, collectivist nonsense and you should be okay. If you can do it with a straight face, you may even get rewarded for being so very ‘useful’.

    This is a little late, but I had to go study some history outside my hillbilly universe!! [two exclamation points for double emphasis]

    What’s a socialist?? [two questions Marx, I mean Marks… I mean…]

    I’d be interested in knowing what books you might recommend that place Obama as a free-market capitalist dedicated to individual effort, self-governance, and actual freedom – untethered economic freedom – as opposed to one who vomits phrases like ‘fundamental transformation of America’ and ‘spread the wealth around’ and ‘you didn’t build that’ without considering the implications of those statements in their historical context. Or is he fully aware of the context? Or did he simply mis-speak? Do we judge him by his words when one’s words can be twisted and taken out of context? Do we judge him by his actions? What is his signature piece of legislation, the piece he is proudest of? An act that moves us toward socialized medicine, isn’t it?

    Certainly his brand of collectivism is geared to appeal to the modern masses but is collectivism none-the-less. This is merely anecdotal, but consider his treatment of Margaret “The problem with socialism is that you eventually run out of other people’s money.” Thatcher’s funeral. Not even a lowering of the flag. Compare that to Obama’s treatment of the death of Nelson “Comrade” Mandela. Flags were lowered. Carefully crafted speeches were shared. Vacations to South Africa were planned for and taken (oh the good, good will of it all).

    This is the same Nelson Mandela, who the South African Communist Party spoke of in this manner: “In Comrade Mandela we had a brave and courageous soldier, patriot and internationalist who, to borrow from Che Guevara [that puke], was a ‘true revolutionary guided by great feelings of love for his people, an outstanding feature of all genuine people’s revolutionaries’.”

    Here is my favorite… along the same lines:

    – The belief that a particular race, religion, gender, species, BELIEF SYSTEM, or culture is superior to others and entitles those who identify with it to dominate, control, or rule those who do not. A person who believes that a certain group is or should be supreme is a supremacist.

    So, if you have a belief system that you think is superior to other belief systems, then you are a supremacist? Do they really believe that?

    You’ve got to FEEL the idea. You can’t THINK the idea. Thinking is what individuals do. Can’t have that.

    I don’t know how legitimate this article is, but according to what it reads, the definition of “terrorist” no longer applies to its original and specific meaning according to the federal government. Let’s define a “terrorist” in its most simplistic of terms: “An individual who is motivated to inflict horror, panic, fear, distress, and anxiety in another individual, or group of individuals”. According to “official government documents”, the term terrorist is now being defined by the current administration in a form that encompasses large groups of American citizens as “potential terrorists”, or “terrorists”. It appears to me that the broadening of the term “terrorist” has been expanded to fit the needs for the protection of the US government against the powers of the citizens of the United States of America. Last time I checked, our country is run FOR THE PEOPLE, BY THE PEOPLE. Am I correct? Do we live in a democratic republic, or a kleptocratic government system? If this article holds legitimacy, then it’s entirely fair to say a kleptocratic element actively exists within our system of government that is slowly turning the tables in favor of government tyranny, and against the power of US citizens. If the government does not fear the power of the people, the people will be stripped of their rights, liberties, and freedoms as a result of the government’s efforts to redefine its citizens as “terrorists” or “potential terrorists” through definition of broad and sweeping legal interpenetration that will result in a significant condemnation and persecution of a significantly large portion of citizens in this country. Always remember, a well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed upon. This is Constitutional law, and must be upheld. If by upholding this Constitutional amendment classifies me as a terrorist by the U.S. government, then it also classifies me as an American patriot who values liberty and freedom over oppression, tyranny.

    Sounds more like a list of unhappy voters than terrorists. Only a politician can come up with a list like this. Especially if there is an issue they don’t like and the voters keep bugging him about it. Then its either the IRS or the Psychiatrists that come after you. So there you have it.

Thank you for sharing.
