3rd party supporters are terrorists to MO highway patrol?

Via Instapundit: Fusion center’ data draws fire over assertions
Politics, banners seen as suspect.

Titled “The Modern Militia Movement,” the report is dated Feb. 20 and designed to help police identify militia members or domestic terrorists. Red flags outlined in the document include political bumper stickers such as those for U.S. Rep. Ron Paul, talk of conspiracy theories such as the plan for a mega-highway from Canada to Mexico and possession of subversive literature.

Conspiracy theory? There are "Future I-69 Corridor" signs up and down the Western Kentucky Parkway last I checked.

Neal, who has a Ron Paul bumper sticker on his car, said the next time he is pulled over by a police officer, he won’t know whether it’s because he was speeding or because of his political views.

“If a police officer is pulling me over with my family in the car and he sees a bumper sticker on my vehicle that has been specifically identified as one that an extremist would have in their vehicle, the guy is probably going to be pretty apprehensive and not thinking in a rational manner,” Neal said. “And this guy’s walking up to my vehicle with a gun.”

So your safe with an Obama or McCain sticker but get pulled over for speeding with a Ron Paul sticker and they are gonna do a felony stop with guns drawn?
