[su_right_ad]Rep. Ted Roe of Texas is looking to compete with Rudy Giuliani.

[he] appeared on yesterday’s edition of “Washington Watch” to address a recent Department of Homeland Security report that right-wing “sovereign citizens”are responsible for at least two dozen violent attacks in the U.S. over the last several years…

[Roe] claimed that the administration is “more aggressive toward Americans, Republicans, conservatives, Christians, and concerned about them being threats to the country, which they’re not, than they are about the real threats to our country.”

“It’s mind-boggling why they would be this way, but to answer your question, yes, there will be questions and we will just ask them an obvious one: show us some proof of this situation that they claim that all of these different folks that you mentioned are threats to our country.”

    Oh goody, another clairvoyant gopper is going to tell us what the President is “thinking”.

    “… show us some proof of this situation that they claim that all of these different folks that you mentioned are threats to our country.” — Someone needs to start watching the news.

    OOPS this one is mistaken. Hey there the DHS is the one’s that issued a report on this. You need to contact them or read the report. By the way this is second report that points this out one was in 2009. So this is not knew news.

    • mea_mark February 24th, 2015 at 5:26 pm

      It seems to me, this is pretty much common knowledge, especially since the whole Bundy fiasco.

      • raypc800 February 24th, 2015 at 5:37 pm

        To the TP/GOP he is a hero standing up for his rights!! I kid you not that is their mentality.

        • mea_mark February 24th, 2015 at 6:35 pm

          Exactly, they are the ones we need to be worried about. When about 20% of the nation sees these people as heroes, we are in real trouble here at home.

    Show you proof? Jerad and Amanda Miller. Next.

    Marie Harf Last week. “We need in the longer term, or medium-to-longer term, to go after the root causes that lead people to join these groups, whether it is lack of opportunities for jobs.”

    Obama promptly vetos keystone xl which would create thousands of jobs for Americans susceptible to radicalism because of lack of opportunity and jobs.

    • arc99 February 24th, 2015 at 6:09 pm

      In addition to stop lying, please stop pretending that right wingers give a rat’s behind about jobs if it interferes with your psychotic Obama-hating.

      Saving general motors prevented the loss of hundreds of thousands of jobs and you guys were whining about the President’s policies to restore GM from bankruptcy.

      Lie after lie after lie is all we hear from you people.

      A State Department review found the project could support — not create — 42,100 jobs. But that number needs considerable explanation and does not amount to tens of thousands of full-time jobs in the most common sense of employment.

      The figure represents the project’s estimated direct, indirect and induced jobs over two years of construction, and all but 50 are temporary.

      • Dwendt44 February 24th, 2015 at 10:34 pm

        A realistic guesstimate of temporary jobs was around 2000 at most.

    • Dwendt44 February 24th, 2015 at 10:38 pm

      All those nut jobs have the funds to drive hundreds if not thousands of miles, carrying several hundred dollars of food, equipment and large stock of weapons and ammunition. Who funds this response? They clearly can’t be that hard up money wise if the travel and support expenses are done on their own dime.
      If I was hurting for rent, food and other basics, I’d sell my guns hunker down in the house and no spend a dime I didn’t have to.

    • rg9rts February 25th, 2015 at 5:27 am

      35 permanent jobs…how about rebuilding the interstate infrastructure instead of building a port for export of Canadian oil.

    (Cough cough, PROTESTER or domestic terrorist.)

    Protester Eric Parker from central Idaho aims his weapon from a bridge next to the Bureau of Land Management’s base camp where seized cattle that belonged to rancher Cliven Bundy are being held near Bunkerville, Nev. April 12, 2014.

      This guy ain’t too smart. He can move his rifle up and down, but not side to side.

      • mea_mark February 24th, 2015 at 7:56 pm

        He makes a good poser though.

        • Dwendt44 February 24th, 2015 at 10:32 pm

          I;m sure his local militia is so proud of him.

      • Dwendt44 February 24th, 2015 at 10:32 pm

        What little lateral movement he has might be enough if the target(s) is far enough away and concentrated into a small group.
        Why the BLM wasn’t backed up with Cobra choppers still amazes me.

    • rg9rts February 25th, 2015 at 5:25 am

      Looks like he might have a whole 4 degrees of view from that position

  7. craig7120 February 24th, 2015 at 6:23 pm

    A truly sad statement
    The gop has generated so much hate over the last 6 years, it seems the so called religious right have forsaken their god. If Mr Obama has caused so much pain in your life that your jesus can’t make you a better person is it not time to consider switching religions?

    Poor souls
    As a happy atheist you right wing miserable christians have my sympathy.

    Chris Rock: [on the government] They keep trying to scare us. They keep telling us to be on the lookout for Al-Qaeda. I ain’t scared of Al-Qaeda! I’m from Brooklyn… I don’t give a f*ck about Al-Qaeda! Mother f*ck Al-Qaeda. Did Al-Qaeda blow up the building in Oklahoma? NO! Did Al-Qaeda put anthrax in your mail? NO! Did Al-Qaeda drag James Byrd onto the street till his eyes popped out of his fuckin’ head? NO! I ain’t scared of Al-Qaeda! I’m scared of Al-Cracka!

      I can’t stand to listen to him, but I do like his message.

      • rg9rts February 25th, 2015 at 5:24 am

        I don’t like him either..

  9. tiredoftea February 24th, 2015 at 7:04 pm

    Poor Ted, doesn’t like himself and his buddies being called out for their fraternal activities.

      GOP terrorists shutdown DHS on Friday because repub crybabies are despised globally by any critical thinkers.

      • tiredoftea February 24th, 2015 at 10:12 pm

        I’m guessing that the IS folk’s are rooting for them, if they are even aware of what the Repubs are doing for them.

    Texas Ted is ignorant that Americans Know Republicans, Conservatives, Right Wing Radical Christians’ Are a Greater Threat Than ISIS. DHS: “An attack by right wing radicals is either carried out or foiled every 34 days” in the USA via DHS Secretary Jeh Johnson.

  11. jybarz February 24th, 2015 at 9:45 pm

    Well, maybe, maybe not, that President Obama thinks republicans, conservatives and right wing christians are greater threat than ISIS. But it is rather hard to disagree with Repuke Rep Roe’s suggestion about them being greater threat than ISIS. Just look at the damage they have done to US: $Trillion cost of 2 unfunded GOP’s wars, thousands of Americans and people of Iraq, Afghanistan, etc died and injured, their wars have created ISIS and GFC. That’s just for starters.

  12. William February 24th, 2015 at 10:54 pm

    If someone comes along and tells me what another person is thinking, I’d have to be as dumb as a dittohead to take it seriously.

  13. majii February 25th, 2015 at 2:36 am

    Poe is doing the same thing some republicans did in 2009 when the DHS report GWB ordered reached the same conclusion–far right, homegrown extremists are a bigger threat to us than foreign terrorists, including ISIS. He’s protecting some of his constituents, and he knows it. He’s probably received quite a bit of exposure to their extremism in town halls and in calls and emails sent to his office. He’s also trying to tie law enforcement officials’ hands on the issue, and hes sending a message to the extremists that he’s OK with their anti-government sentiment and plans. His speaking out and saying that the report is an attack by President Obama on Christians is hogwash. The real goal of him saying this is to send a message to the law enforcement community to “lay off” sovereign citizens and other rw extremists.

  14. rg9rts February 25th, 2015 at 5:22 am

    Republicans .. Conservatives…Christians….ARE more dangerous than ISIS

  15. cecilia February 25th, 2015 at 10:56 am

    Chris Rock is f’ing brilliant

  16. James Flatmo February 25th, 2015 at 4:51 pm

    Well, let’s see here:

    Thousands of people die each year as a result of insufficient healthcare (which the republicans want to continue). Republicans are fighting against anti-discrimination laws to specifically allow the targeting of LGBT folks. Republicans are trying to control womens’ reproductive systems, and they want to go to war with just about everyone… they were the primarily responsible party for the iraq war (yes, democrats voted yes, but that was based on false information given by…drumroll.. republicans).

    So in terms of “who is getting americans killed?”, I would argue that republicans are several times more dangerous than ISIS.

    ISIS has killed a few hundred americans. Republicans kill more than that each month.

    Who’s the bigger threat?
