Secretary Nincompoop's Worst Fears Being Realized

I am sure this is causing DHS secretary Janet Napolitano some sleepless nights, because we know the open borders doesn't. There is a rise in conservative right wing groups on *gasp* college campuses.
A student group that bills itself as "America's right wing youth movement" focused on countering radical multiculturism, socialism and mass immigration is causing a stir on a growing number of college campuses across the country.

The ultra-conservative political group Youth for Western Civilization is currently organized on at least seven university campuses. According to its Web site, the group hopes to inspire Western youth on the "basis of pride in their American and Western heritage," counter and ultimately defeat "leftism on campus" and create a social movement in which a right-wing subculture is an alternative to what it calls a "poisonous and bigoted" campus climate.
There are some brave young folks out there. They are not only having to battle the entrenched liberals in the halls of academia but risk running afoul of the highly vaunted Homeland Security. They have already drawn the attention of one of the most racist, pretending to be unbiased observers, organizations out there, the Southern Poverty Law Center. For those outside of the south, you probably aren't that aware of this group, but they are a thorn in the side of politicians down her. I think at one time right after hurricane Katrina they had FEMA on their watch list.
Officials at the Southern Poverty Law Center, which identifies and tracks hate groups in the U.S., told that the YWC is not currently on its list, but some of the group's views are "suspect," including the notion that Western civilization is somehow superior.
If DHS had an actual list of right wing extremist groups it would probably be a faxed copy they received from this group. As far as I know, the SPLC doesn't know of any left wing hate groups.

I visited the groups web site and there isn't much there. If there is something more sinister we need to know, but so far I don't see that from this group.
