(U//FOUO) DHS Domestic Terrorism and Homegrown Violent Extremism Lexicon

The following document is an updated version of a 2009 “Domestic Extremism Lexicon” produced by the Department of Homeland Security’s Office of Intelligence and Analysis. The list of terms has been substantially reduced and does not include a number of controversial terms from the first version, such as “alternative media” and “direct action.”  This version was obtained and published by a blogger associated with PJ Media.

    “direct action” is not listed now because that is a term used by leftist revolutionaries.

    I’m sure the founding fathers must be proud of the way this government has gone. A bunch of corrupt power hungry jackasses that see the constitution as being less significant than toilet paper.
