Internet Campaign to Remove Secretary Napolitano

Posted: Apr 27, 2009 12:00 AM

A non-profit organization devoted to national security is demanding the resignation of the Secretary of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano, or that President Obama fire her immediately.

The Internet-based Move America Forward is using their web site, email, and social networking sites such as Facebook and Twitter to push for the removal of Secretary Napolitano.

Napolitano noticeably demonstrates that she is incapable of protecting America from the threat of Islamic terrorism. She must be fired immediately if our country is going to be safe in the coming years, according to Move Forward America, an organization that supports the US military as well as federal, state and local law enforcement officials. notes Napolitano's latest example of her incompetence to serve as the top person at Homeland Security came when she wrongly claimed this week that the 9/11 terrorists came through Canada to launch the attack, even though not one of the radical Muslims traveled through our northern neighbor.

"The "How could the head of our security be so ignorant?" asks a Move Forward America press statement.

Meanwhile Congresswoman Mary Fallin (R-OK) said in a statement released to Internet journalists and bloggers that Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano is “out of touch with mainstream America” if she believes that returning war veterans and people who believe in the Second Amendment pose a terrorism threat to the nation.

“Like most Oklahomans I was amazed at her statements and actions this week,” Fallin said. “First she approved a report that implied members of the armed forces returning from combat would follow in the footsteps of Timothy McVeigh. Then she insulted our friends in Canada by falsely claiming the 9/11 terrorists came from there. Is this really a person that should be speaking on behalf of our nation?”

"Her earlier statement this week impugning most American conservatives, like myself, as possible terrorists set off another firestorm of criticism of the DHS Secretary," she said.

When Napolitano released a report saying that returning veterans from Iraq or Afghanistan should be watched as they could become domestic conservative terrorists, according to, the FBI went so far as to film the recent tea party protests of loyal Americans because of warnings that conservatives could become terrorist threats.

Napolitano approved release of a report last week implying that a variety of groups, including veterans, pro life activists, and supporters of gun rights, could be potential anti-government terrorists. She also said Wednesday that the 9/11 terrorists entered the country from Canada, when in fact they came from overseas.

"With her ignorance about Islamic terrorism, no wonder she is wasting time examining our troops, anti-tax, pro-life, pro-2nd Amendment and other conservative groups," states Move Forward America.

"It is clear that Napolitano has no clue about the details of what happened to America on September 11, 2001. And she has offended our brave and selfless troops who have protected us since that infamous day of attacks on America’s homeland. Her outlook and priorities are exactly backward and plainly dangerous.

"Napolitano is unfit to serve as secretary of Homeland Security and President Obama must fire her before she causes more damage to our country."

The non-profit organization also points to Napolitano's claim that the Canadian border is a sieve for terrorists entering America, ignoring the fact that she ignored illegal immigration coming into Arizona while she was Governor. When Napolitano declared a "state of emergency," she deployed 54 National Guardsmen.

"I've seen more National Guard troops deployed for a snowstorm," said political consultant Mike Baker.

It remains to be seen how successful this Internet campaign will be in achieving its goal, but at least the message is getting out, something the mainstream news media appear loathe to do.
