And the winner in the “Who Can Milk the Department of Homeland Security  ‘Rightwing Extremist’ Report the Hardest” contest is … the Thomas More Law Center, which has filed a (hilarious) lawsuit against DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano.

The non-profit law firm said the U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s “rightwing extremism policy,” reflected in an Intelligence Assessment publicized last week, violates the civil liberties of combat veterans as well as American citizens by targeting them for disfavored treatment on account of their political beliefs.

The lawsuit was filed in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Michigan on behalf of conservative radio talk show host, Michael Savage, Gregg Cunningham (president of the pro-life organization Center for Bio-Ethical Reform, Inc.), and Iraqi War Marine veteran Kevin Murray.

Via Charles Johnson, who has a PDF of the suit and points out that the Center previously sued on behalf of the Dover, Penn. creationists. The part that jumps out in my quick read:

Plaintiff Murray believes that the Obama administration’s policies are leading to the creation of a world government that would usurp the sovereignty of the United States and the authority of its Constitution, thereby infringing upon his liberty.

Pursuant to the federal government’s “Rightwing Extremism Policy,” Plaintiff Murray is a “rightwing extremist,” subjecting him to government scrutiny, investigation, surveillance, and intimidation.

Of course, Murray has a constitutional right to think that his president is part of a trans-global conspiracy to destroy America.
