Susan Stamper Brown’s commentary of Feb. 13 (“Obama administration: Going Jack Bauer on us”) had the following statement in it:

“Lest we forget,, they put out the “Right-wing extremists” watch list in 2009 secretly informing police forces to look out for those who love God, celebrate freedom, adhere to wholesome values, and cherish the Constitution.”

I found that list on the Internet. It was an unclassified warning by Homeland Security about the possible resurgence of white supremacist and violent antigovernment groups (with references to the Oklahoma City bombing) during the Great Recession and following the election of a black president.

Did you read this commentary? Do you support its inflammatory rhetoric? It seems to me that Stamper Brown’s so-called “commentaries” go way over the journalistic (red) line.
