TRANSLATION: Just because right-wing violence is practically non-existent doesn't mean we can't pretend it is threat #1.
Because the left succeeded in whitewashing history.
It’s a “teachable moment” every time the leftists try to conflate “right wing” and “Nazi”.
I guess I'm far right then. Although I don't want to undermine the legitimacy of the federal government - I want to maintain that legitimacy and it seems to me that it is far more legitimate when it keeps to its proper bounds.
Also, I didn't know that I engaged in low level violence, vandalism or unsophisticated attacks against individuals. Either I'm an exception, or political discussion and conservative voting is low level violence.
Interesting history lesson. Thanks.
More psy-op prepping the battle-space.
If we do need to take back our Country via kinetic ballot, we’ll be fighting this bias as well...
They are painting us to resemble Emmanuel Goldstein.
Oh look, the police have themselves an RV.
Its almost a prerequisite for entrance today. USMC MarSoc, SEALs, Rangers, SFs etc.
True. The skill sets that once were restricted to US military SOF conducting combat operations exclusively against foreign enemies has dramatically morphed into para-military operations against domestic "terrorists" since 2001, thanks in no small part to the passing and implementation of the Patriot Act (a most cynical term if there ever was one). The draw is the adrenaline rush of the work, remaining in what is considered an elite force, and the money. The question is, how many of these former special operators will remember and honor their oath to the Constitution rather than go into "accomplish the mission" auto mode when the domestiic SHTF? We shall see...
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.
Creel was a true progressive scumbag. Don’t be fooled by the fact that he was an anti communist, so was Hitler.
Left wing violence is so much more common, have they ever polled prisons? I bet the left wins in a walk.
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.
“Workplace Violence vs. Domestic Right-Wing White Christian Terrorism” was always a class I struggled with in Summer Re-Education Camp.
Looks like Bernays was an unprincipled opportunist, which pretty much defines a career in PR or political campaign management.
These all look like left-wing examples.
The most obvious is the KKK, which is leftist and was formed by the Democrat party.
“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.
