Letter to U.S. Senator Claire McCaskill

I was listening to a syndicated radio host who has been railing about the recent Department of Homeland Security on “Right Wing Extremism” defended by Director of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano.

The report defines possible right wing extremists as veterans coming home from Iraq and Afghanistan as well as those opposed to abortion and illegal immigration.

The talk show host asked everyone to send a letter, a fax and an email to their U.S. Representative and Senators demanding that Homeland Security Director Napolitano be fired.

The following is the Letter that I am sending to U.S. Senator Claire McCaskill…

Dear Senator Claire McCaskill,


I have not always agreed with your politics, but I have met you before and found you to be a good listener, who shows respect and concern for her constituents.


I voted for you in 2006 and have no regrets in doing so.  I trusted in you to do what is right for our State and our Country, it was a “leap of faith” if you will.


The reason for my correspondence is my astonishment of hearing the news of (and reading personally) about Director of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano.


In her report , entitled, “Rightwing Extremism: Current Economic and Political Climate Fueling Resurgence in Radicalization and Recruitment”, Director Napolitano states:


Rightwing extremists are harnessing this historical election as a recruitment tool. Many rightwing extremists are antagonistic toward the new presidential administration and its perceived stance on a range of issues, including immigration and citizenship, the expansion of social programs to minorities, and restrictions on firearms”


Napolitano also issues a blanket defacto indictment against our veterans by stating:


The possible passage of new restrictions on firearms and the return of

military veterans facing significant challenges reintegrating into their communities could lead to the potential emergence of terrorist groups or lone wolf extremists capable of carrying out violent attacks.


One of the focal points of your 2006 campaign was veterans’ rights, can you, with a clear conscience let Director Napolitano’s  shameful remarks against them go without taking disciplinary action against her?


I am asking that Janet Napolitano, Director of Homeland Security be relieved of her position immediately. 


Respectfully yours,

Clint E. Lacy
