Gun Owners of America executive director Larry Pratt appeared Stan Solomon's Internet talk show program last week where he claimed that the "enemy of the Obama government is the American people."
Solomon and Pratt were discussing a 2009 government memo that mentioned potential terrorists could come from "militia/sovereign-citizen extremist groups," including veterans from Iraq and Afghanistan, reported the Wall Street Journal.
According to The Washington Times, a footnote to the memo stated: “Rightwing extremism extends to those that are mainly anti-government, rejecting federal authority in favor of state or local authority, or rejecting government authority entirely. It may include groups and individuals that are dedicated to a single issue, such as opposition to abortion or immigration.”
Pratt then claimed the Secretary of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano was targeting people who support the Second Amendment, oppose abortion and gay marriage as potential terrorists, noted RightWingWatch.org (video below).
"Napolitano was telling us, telling specifically police agencies across the country to be on the lookout for those that could be terrorists, that would include people who have some sort of limited government philosophy, that are pro-Second Amendment, that are pro-life, that are pro-traditional marriage, those are the places where the terrorist pool is located," said Pratt.
"That’s where they will be coming from. We should’ve realized then that what she was actually saying is that the enemy of the Obama government is the American people."
Solomon agreed: "That’s exactly it. They weren’t looking for terrorists, they don’t care about terrorists, they encourage terrorists and frankly they are terrorists."
Neither Pratt or Solomon mentioned the terrorists killed by the Obama administration, including Osama Bin laden, who eluded the Bush administration for eight years.
