Prepping US Armed Forces to cope with extremists doesn't sound bad until you discover that an example of the type of extremists our troops may have to suppress are people who oppose taxes or tyranny. According to the Defense Equal Opportunity Management Institute training guide, America's Founding Fathers were extremists who unjustly opposed legitimate ruling authorities.
The training guide says that In U.S. history, there are many examples of extremist ideologies and movements. The colonists who sought to free themselves from British rule and the Confederate states who sought to secede from the Northern states are just two examples. The colonists' manifesto, for instance, asserts that rights come from a 'Creator.' This is an open invitation to defy the laws handed down by human governing authorities. It is deeply subversive.
The grievances cited by this manifesto could be lodged against virtually any governing body, the guide continued. It objects to excessive taxation, growing bureaucracy, rule by executive decree, barriers to commerceall acts routinely embarked upon by governments of every stripe around the world today. It elevates liberty above cooperation with duly appointed government officials. This can only lead to anarchy.
Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel vigorously defended the guide. Is 'give me liberty or give me death' that different from 'behead those who insult Islam?' Hagel asked. Both entail violent thoughts. We cannot afford to overlook threats just because they emanate from the 'Yankee Doodle' side of the political spectrum.

Trying to train soldiers that it is ok to kill patriots opposing the Progressive tyranny.
Crossing the Delaware makes you an extremist.
With the Pentagon now helping al Qaeda (that bombed it
and murdered THOUSANDS of Americans),
and with the NSA targeting Americans
while letting al Qaeda go (eg. Boston Atrocity),
and with the DOD now targeting any American
supporting the US Constitution,
this is NOT satire.
Very little satire in your stuff today FRiend:
Key word there is legitimate. If the people trying to exercise power have no legitimate authority, these self-same soldiers are obligated to help us fight the good fight. If it comes to that.
Tyranny’s first steps.
In my opinion, the enemies of freedom are within.
Forget about it. Soldiers follow orders. If the flag officers do not do not order the coup, we are the enemy.
