Here is a key phrase in this article, citing Ehud Spinszak, an Israeli political scientist: "He (Ehud Spinszak) argued that the Gush (a nationalist Israeli group) is best understood not as a classical protest movement, but as the extremist tip of a large social and cultural “iceberg,” in effect a religious subculture, which supports and nurtures the Gush. Pyramidal in structure, this iceberg—Gush’s social and political bases of support—broadens as one moves from the politically extremist tip to the less extremist base."

In other words, the occasional act of violence by a "lone nut" or small group of racists is supported by the culturally and religiously conservative, though not violent, community. In Israel, that would be the most orthodox Jews, especially those who support the expulsion of all non-Jews from the nation. In the United States, that would be primarily fundamentalist Christians, especially homeschoolers, self-reliant rural people, gun enthusiasts, etc. Other, smaller groups with a similar profile include traditionalist Catholics, especially those who believe that no Pope since Pius XII is legitimate; Mormons in several LDS offshoots that support polygamy; Objectivists and freethinkers in the Lysander Spooner mode; believers in "Identity" religion (Anglo-Saxons are the real children of Israel and the actual Jews impostors); and the stricter Mennonite sects.

The fact is that the Nazi, Klan, militia, Identity, and similar movements are heavily infiltrated by Federal, state, and local law enforcement, as well as non-government groups like the Southern Poverty Law Center and the Anti-Defamation League. Said groups have been under surveillance and subject to infiltration since the 1960s, following the murder of civil rights workers in the South. It is unlikely a member of one of these group buys a loaf of bread or a tank of gas without being watched and reported on. They constitute minimal threat and most of the group actions are provoked or at least countenanced by law enforcement.

The real goal of these "extremist" alerts is to smear the broader base with the actions of a few violent individuals. Conservatives play the same game. Senator Joseph McCarthy was mostly correct in his identification of Communists in the State Department and the military, but others, such as Martin Dies, used the treason of Alger Hiss and the Rosenbergs to smear leftists and liberals in the entertainment business. However, the Left now controls the levers of power, especially under Obama. (Even with a Romney victory, leftists are well positioned in academia, the foundations, local and state governments in the Northeast, Great Lakes, and West Coast, and the Federal civil service to continue their war.) The Communists suppressed similar groups in the hellhole called the Soviet Union, first by ridicule, then by isolation, and finally by imprisonment. The Nazis did the same with the Jews. Our leftists have a similar goal.

Bernays was the nephew of Sigmund Freud. I’m actually torn on whether to consider him evil but reading some of what he wrote makes it hard to see him any other way. He was a manipulator and the chief propagandist of the Creel Committee under Wilson. (George Creel was a journalist) The committee propagandized us into WWI.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Committee_on_Public_Information

Creel was a true progressive scumbag. Don’t be fooled by the fact that he was an anti communist, so was Hitler.

Careful, you’re falling into their very effective trap.
They don’t care what it _means_. It’s a loaded pejorative, a label slapped on you to cause others to instantly avoid you. You standing there arguing about the nuanced historical meaning is, as they intend, you wasting time & energy while they’re moving on to hitting the next target.
It’s kinda like you standing there arguing about the difference between FMJ vs BTHP and whether the latter is allowed under the Geneva Convention whilst the is satisfied that whatever he shot you with, you’re suffering a sucking chest wound.

So am I in trouble with the Federal Government if I am a constitutional conservative, believe in limited government at all levels, decreased rules and regulations, lower taxes, decrease entitlements, especially welfare, strong believer in the 1st and 2nd amendments, believe in religious freedom, the Ten Commandments, basic sense of right and wrong, common sense, live and let live, freedom, free markets, capitalism, family, property rights, and ‘life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness’?

“Indeed, the high volume of far right violence reflected in vandalism and attacks against individuals “

Nothing like brainwashing a bunch of kids that think they are the elite and therefore what they are thinking at the moment is the truth, even if that truth was handed to them by extreme left-wing liberals with such false statements as that one.

My tagline is my motto.

Based on analysis of 4,400 cases of violent attacks by far-right elements in a 22-year period

Sounds impressive, but at 1 incident perpetrated per year by each member of a group constituting .00006% of the population - contrasted with over a million violent crimes per year - is little more than statistical noise. Far-left elements/adherents surpass that rate in individual protests, not just over years.

And that's not considering that what he's calling "far-right elements" are often originated from the Left (KKK) and are so far out there they are completely disconnected from the left/right spectrum period.

Well, I guess we’re doomed then. I suppose they are convinced they’re protecting America from the terrorists.

Of that they are convinced.

But they cannot win a war of attrition.

And their opponents, while many are older and off a bit from their peak, are still numerous and highly effective.

Arie Perliger, a world expert on the study of terror and security said the following:

>>Ideologically, anti-federalists are interested in undermining the influence, legitimacy and practical sovereignty of the federal government and its proxy organizations, such as the U.S. military or Federal Bureau of Investigation.[3] This rationale is multifaceted, and includes the belief that the U.S. political system and its proxies have been hijacked by external forces interested in promoting a New World Order (NWO),[4] in which the United States will be absorbed into the United Nations or another version of global government; strong convictions regarding the corrupted and tyrannical nature of the federal government and its related natural tendency to intrude on individuals’ civilian lives and constitutional rights; and finally, perceptions supporting civilian activism, individual freedoms, and self governing the way they were manifested in the frontier culture in U.S. history, especially during the Revolutionary War and the expansion to the American west. Hence, anti-federalist groups see themselves as part of a struggle to restore or preserve the United States’ “true” identity, values and “way of life” and as the successors of the country’s founding fathers.<<

These are some quotes that his professors neglected to mention in the classroom. The author, Dr. Are Perliger needs to look up for himself.

.

"The illegal we do immediately. The unconstitutional takes a little longer. [The New World Order] cannot happen without U.S. participation, as we are the most significant single component. Yes, there will be a New World Order, and it will force the United States to change it's perceptions. "

Henry Kissinger
World Affairs Council Press Conference,
Regent Beverly Wilshire Hotel,
April 19th 1994.

"We are on the verge of a global transformation. All we need is the right major crisis and the nations will accept the New World Order." -- David Rockefeller - New World Order globalist

"Out of these troubled times, our fifth objective – a New World Order – can emerge. . . Now, we can see a New World Order coming into view. A world in which there is a very real prospect for a New World Order. . .A world where the United Nations, freed from a Cold War stalemate, is poised to fulfill the historic vision of its founders." -- George H. W. Bush told the U.N. on September 11th 1990

"Sarah, if the American people had ever known the truth about what we Bushes have done to this nation, we would be chased down in the streets and lynched." -- George H.W. Bush to reporter Sarah McClendon in 1992

"We shall have one world government whether or not you like it, by conquest or consent." -- CFR member James Warburg before a Senate Foreign Relations Committee February 17, 1950

Just damn.

The premise is so flawed, especially the groups the author labels “right wing” in order to even have a premise as to be mind numbing.

The “ice burg” theory seems to assert that, even though we labeled every violent act we could as “right wing”, there still isn't much to foam at the mouth about. But that is because most of those right wingers are doing evil, violent stuff under the radar so there is no data to support the theory. Which proves they are out there, and really, REALLY dangerous.

Anyone the government plans to stomp into the dirt with force is now a “right-wing extremist”. Christians, people that have read the Constitution, anyone with more than 1 days worth of food stocked up, anyone not on food stamps or government assistance, anyone who inherited their dad’s old .22 rifle, etc., etc., will be the recipient of 1.4 billion rounds of hollow point gunfire, or will fall under the treads of the new armored vehicles driven by DHS staffers.

“Minorities”, “journalists”, Ivy League college professors, and anyone with their hand out to the government is safe though.

Here's a quote from Tom Metzger, the bottom feeder who's in charge of the "White Aryan Resistance" that should turn a few heads:

"The corporations are running things now, so it’s not going to make much difference who's in there, but McCain would be much worse. He’s a warmonger. He’s a scary, scary person--more dangerous than Bush. Obama, according to his book, Dreams Of My Father, is a racist and I have no problem with black racists. I’ve got the quote right here: 'I found a solace in nursing a pervasive sense of grievance and animosity against my mother’s white race.' The problem with Obama is he’s being dishonest about his racial views. I’d respect him if he’d just come out and say, 'Yeah, I’m a black racist.' I don’t hate black people. I just think it’s in the best interest of the races to be separated as much as possible. See, I’m a leftist. I’m not a rightist. I hate the transnational corporations far more than any black person."

Actually, as we all know, white supremacists would NEVER attack a mosque, since they are the staging ground for the the Jew hating jihadis. Almost every Neo-Nazi website talks up the “struggle” of the imaginary “Palestinian people” (Newt was right, doggone it!) against Israel. The vast majority of Neo-Nazis are 9/11 Truthers like their hero, the traitorous Ron Paul. They blame the government and the “Zionists” for 9/11, not their Islamofascist pals.

In the immortal words of my grandfather: “Oy vey!”

They can try, but this time it really is different. We have 100 scoped rifles to their one. First, they have to disarm us before they launch any purges. And any purge will trigger plenty of unintended consequences, possibly like this scenario.

Only complete fools would launch a civil war. Or those who just wanted to destroy America in the first place.
