We Do Profiling Right

On the subject of the Department of Homeland Security alert to law enforcement on “rightwing extremism,” Jonah Goldberg has a nice summary of its premise: (“(Right) Winging It at the DHS”):
[I]t’s very sloppy about what qualifies someone as “extremist” in the first place. Basically, it’s fancy bureaucratese for: We’re guessing bad people will do bad things because the economy is bad and the president is black. But we have no real evidence.
Please. Everybody needs to read this report.
