Horace Cooper’s Bad Timing

Horace Cooper’s Bad Timing June 11, 2014

Last week the Obama administration decided to reform a law enforcement task force dedicated to combating domestic terrorism and Horace Cooper, a right wing activist convicted of falsifying documents during the Bush administration, declared that the threat of right-wing violence was a “complete and total bogeyman.”

Cooper: To shift the resources away from the threat that’s real to this theoretical problem is I think harmful to the safety of Americans and is more about a political agenda than it is in protecting Americans.

Corombos: What do you ultimately think that agenda is?

Cooper: It appears that there’s an attempt to marginalize people who hold views that are sharply different from those of the administration and much of the establishment.

Cooper: We’re particularly bothered by the mixing together so-called domestic insurrectionists and racists. There is simply no anti-black or anti-minority underground movement in America that is threatening in any way the stability of our government, the stability of our local governments, that is just a complete and total bogeyman.

Irony: This interview was on the very same day that two right-wing extremists killed several people, including shooting two police officers execution-style, in an attempt to start a new anti-government revolution. Since 9/11, right wing terrorists have killed more people in the United States than Muslim terrorists.

"It may show just how deeply in debt to Kremlin affiliated Russian oligarchs he is."
