West Point center cites dangers of ‘far right’ in U.S. (West Point infiltrated by far left)
The Washington Times ^ | January 17, 2013 | Rowan Scarborough

Posted on 01/17/2013 11:49:52 PM PST by CaptainKrunch

A West Point think tank has issued a paper warning America about “far right” groups such as the “anti-federalist” movement, which supports “civil activism, individual freedoms and self-government.”

The report issued this week by the Combating Terrorism Center at the U.S. Military Academy at West Point, N.Y., is titled “Challengers from the Sidelines: Understanding America’s Violent Far-Right.”

The center — part of the institution where men and women are molded into Army officers — posted the report Tuesday. It lumps limited government activists with three movements it identifies as “a racist/white supremacy movement, an anti-federalist movement and a fundamentalist movement.”

The West Point center typically focuses reports on al Qaeda and other Islamic extremists attempting to gain power in Asia, the Middle East and Africa through violence.

But its latest study turns inward and paints a broad brush of people it considers “far right.”

My God.  How is this tolerated.  Our Nation is becoming completely inverted.  How are the communists able to infiltrate their propaganda into every major institution in our entire Nation?  This is surreal.  If the communists can get this kind of madness accepted to be taught to upcoming officers by the Nations number one military institute, they must be giggling hystericaly.

The author is yet another left-wing Jew. Same sort of mindset that is at the forefront of the gun control hysteria in the nation just now.

How am I “slandering” Jews when I point out the obvious facts?

Slander, noun: oral defamation, in which someone tells one or more persons an untruth about another which untruth will harm the reputation of the person defamed.

Since this is a) written and b) not untruth, it isn’t slander.

Re Perliger’s credentials. All academic so far. He’s still a stupid schmuck.

Thought that he was in the Israeli Army at one time. If so, he apparently didn’t learn anything.

Now he’s spreading his ignorance to ours. WTFIGO?

Pretty incredible, alright. And hard to believe that the radical 'anti-Federalists' are properly called 'Federalists,' the latter is still used to describe those who believe in a limited central government.

Evidence of plain stupidity. Why should I lend any credence to anything else these sophists have to say?

That always bugs me, too. Federalism died in 1865, but we went on calling the central government in Washington “federal,” and since then somehow its meaning has completely flipped.

The rantings of a man with a lifetime of institution does not impress me. I insist something happens to them epigenetically to become elitists. Of course it all goes back to the Garden of Eden and a tale of two trees. I guess we know which one he eats from. This delusion of omniscience is clearly a psychopathology.

Tolerated? It’s the become the new normal.

Janet Napolitano had her list of potential terrorists that included returning war veterans, gun owners, and so on. Rat politicians and other leftists are frequently using the word “extremist” to describe what we would consider very moderate opinions on various subjects.

That sounds like a description of those who cling to God and guns - real Americans.

Sheesh, here it comes....persecution!

Substitute "JEWS" for "racist/white supremacist, anti-federalist, fundamentalist movement",
Move the clock back to 1934,
Throw in a few uniforms,
Hold a rally, or two

.....and the horror will be complete.

The left infiltrated grammar schools so they could indoctrinate children from the beginning.

“West Point” is the same thing, indoctrinating military officers at the beginning of their careers. Yes, there will be a reckoning, some day, and this is the left’s attempt to get military leadership on their side, to swear to uphold the president, not the US Constitution.

NVDave did not slander the Jews.

He is protesting the failure by too many Jews who are hell bent to ignore the lesson, that it is essential, as we need air we can breathe, to also maintain a defense and discipline against government power.

Some Jews know that. Some are afraid to address it among their relatives and community who/which imagine that they can substitute a good socialist police state in place of what was a bad socialist police state ... skipping over the obvious problem: police states.

Nobody, because of their race, creed, or color, gets immunity or some excuse from the lesson of history: government *must be limited* and there must be several protections of the people, by the people, for the people, *FROM* government abuses of people.

We have a duty as individuals, to not let go of freedom, because leftist Jews desire to seize an opportunity to promote further panic and herd people toward what particularly communist Jews imagine in the U.S.A., would be their utopian nationalizing socialist police state.

We do not need to recreate/re-enact the tragedies of the 20th century’s record of bad government and police states that killed multiples of the “six million Jews” estimated to have died in the German concentration camp plus other extermination systems ... just so liberals are convinced, it did happen.

We don’t need any more holocaust denial by the left.

In addition, there ought to be some respect for all the men and women who fought and died, inching our way from water’s edge to concentration camp surroundings. Which freedom fighters were Jews, Christians, some muslims, and among them, many conservatives and Republicans.

I have listened to the bashing of these people, bashed by communists, bashed by leftists, bashed by progressives, and bashed by socialists ... for many decades.

I have to talk to the survivors of our military and of the Allies during World War II, in order to find somebody who remembers the day when they reached one of the camps and rescued the prisoners. I have to search to find prisoners who are thankful and recognize, that by the grace of God, they were rescued by so many of our people who would defy socialist police states of Germany and then of Russia and of Red China.

I want to thank everybody resisting nationalizing socialist police states.

It hurts a lot, to find leftist, but especially “liberal Jews” who are not only, *not thankful for others’ sacrifices,* but who are also quick to bash individual freedom.

I’m not going to come down on the side of left-leaning Jews who bash the wisdom of George Washington, George Mason, and others named and nameless who dared to establish a limited government for the uniting states - formerly colonies.

We have a worthy American heritage, American culture, and American traditions.

From the perspective of foreign people *who yearn to be free,* they are still amazed at the sovereignty of the individual, the spirit to fight for individual liberty and for our liberty. A lot of foreign people are “Americans at heart.” They are certainly welcome.

We have an affection for Israelis because we figure, that they figure into that; we are cousins.

Though it can be frustrating when they deny that we love them.

I have, upon many occasions here on FR, pointed out that the Catholic Church (and many of it’s adherents) have been in favor of socialized medicine in the past, and that they “were for the Obama health care plan before they were against it” when they found out that Obama considered the RCC to be useful idiots for his plan.

Because, since the 1930’s, there has been a strain of left-wing intellectuals and intellectualism that has been a) vehemently anti-American, b) rooted in European Jewish immigrant communities. There has been no other community or racial cohort that has done as much, as persistently, as pervasively as the Jewish left-wing intellectual movement to tear down the foundations of the US.

You don’t have to believe me. You can read the works of people who were there. Guys like Ronald Radosh and David Horowitz, you can go back and read the history of the US in the 1930’s, when we were for-real infiltrated by card-carrying communists.

One defining characteristic of the Jewish left since Vietnam (or since 1973) has been their denunciations of Israel and Zionism - and in this aspect, the subject person at hand is entirely consistent with the “new Jewish left” movement in the US.

I’m not pointing out ONE characteristic. I’m pointing out that that’s been part of a much larger, persistent, pervasive movement we’ve seen in this country for 80+ years now that has been tearing us down in our foreign policy, our bedrock principles and now is going after our civil liberties.

You want to argue with that? Go ahead. I’ve done my reading and there’s a LOT of subject material that backs me up. Want me to start citing it? Go ahead. But be prepared to be humiliated at the avalanche of materials that backs me up. Jews can squawk and complain “It’s not just Jews” or “What does being Jewish have to do with it?”

Well, I don’t know. That’s for the people in that cohort to answer. All I can do is point out the history and the facts. Those are plain for all to see who can read.

What’s also plain to see today is that this particular strain of left-wing Jewish intellectuals would be perfectly happy to see Israel wiped off the map. Most American Jews get rather uncomfortable at this little detail, and start squirming in their seats when confronted with the Islamists apologists in their midst. I find this darkly ironic. For any non-Jewish anti-semite, there is really no need to so much as lift a finger to eliminate Israel and a whole bunch of Jews. Just let the left-wing Jewish intellectuals have exactly what they want, and Israel is as good as dead on the spot.

All that would be left for the anti-semites then would be to hide behind the trope “Well, I listened to a bunch of people who were Jewish! Who was I to know that this would turn out like it did?”

Kabbalist Calls for Jews to Return Home

A Kabbalist Elder in Bnei Brak told his students on Friday, Dec.21, 2012 that time is running out for Diaspora Jews to return to the Jewish State.

Rabbi Eliyahu Leon Levi, a 73-year-old sage of Turkish Jewish descent who continues a tradition of Kabbalah from his grandfather and father, issued a passionate cry for the Jews of the United States to purchase homes in Israel and begin planning their move.

He said that just like in Iran before the Shah was ousted, the Jews were prospering financially. But then suddenly everything changed, and many couldn’t leave with their wealth.

“A similar scenario will occur in the USA,” he warned. “Jews must leave and take their money with them. The day will come when they won’t be able to leave with their wealth,” he said...

It is important to make a distinction between the Liberal Self-Hating Atheist Jew and the Conservative Jew. The first group has walked away from their G-d, and all truth (I.E. Sigmund Freud, Karl Marx, Noam Chomsky, etc.). The second is closer to the truth, and their G-d, especially if they believe the Bible.

The two groups cannot be clumped together any more than Liberals and Conservatives (notice I did not say Republicans) in America.

The left has taken over all our institutions of teaching, as shown here, including the military.

The right abandoned institutions of learning in the 1960’s, and conservative money went instead to think tanks. That served conservatives well in the short term. But now the failure of that policy is all too clear.

Generation after generation of Americans have been raised on a steady unchallenged diet of moral equivalency, hatred of capitalism, sexual perversion and promiscuity, and dependence.

I fear for what we have become.

I’m sorry pal, the way you phrased “liberal Jew” was highly objectionable. Wondering why Jews (or Catholics, Mormons, etal) vote a certain way is not the same as saying “liberal Jew” like you did with considerable venom.

Yes, of course you are right. Though unfortunately, most american jews fall in the left wing secular category. And more frustrating, even though most american jews support Israel, they sadly ally themselves with the broader secular left that would like to see Israel destroyed.

I’ve been telling people since the 1994 AW “ban” that people noticed who was out in front of that policy and kept score. Gun owners are the one interest group in American politics with the longest memories and the most coherent voting strategy based on that memory.

Apparently, no one learned anything. Certainly, Diane Feinstein has learned absolutely nothing.

Chuck Schumer, however, is one exception so far. He seems to be a good deal quieter than I had expected him to be.

That we are dedicated to preserving constitutional law including limitations upon governmnent, against both of which Mr. Perliger is apparently opposed, surprises only people who have not been paying attention to what Perliger says and writes.

In his corner, are also Lee Goodman who dismisses our Constitution:

Chicago anti-gun panelist compares crowd reciting Pledge of Allegiance to Nazis’ beer hall conduct

Lee Goodman of Stop Concealed Carry was one of the panelists at the Chicago-area anti-gun...

"The Illinois State Rifle Association had asked their people – who love their guns more than they care about other people’s lives – to go to the forum. They showed up and, on a pre-arranged signal, interrupted the moderator’s introductions by reciting the Pledge of Allegiance. There’s nothing wrong with pledging allegiance, but this demonstration was designed to take control of the meeting and display their power. You may have seen something like it in movies like Cabaret and The Sound of Music, which chronicle how Nazis would intimidate patrons of beer halls and other public events by singing, saluting, scowling, taking names, and following up with beatings."

Who Owns the Constitution? (according to Lee Goodman):

"Ultimately, it is not only impossible to know what the Constitution was originally supposed to mean, it is irrelevant. What we need to keep in mind is what the Constitution was supposed to do. It was written to be the framework for a nation that would be governed differently from the way many other nations at the time were governed. It was meant to establish a relationship between the government apparatus and the people.

It was not meant to be the law."

In their corner, is Professor Lewis Michael Seidman:

CBS's Charles Osgood: 'Is Constitution Truly Worthy of Reverence in Which Most Americans Hold It?'

CHARLES OSGOOD, HOST: Is the U.S. Constitution truly worthy of the reverence in which most Americans hold it? A view on that from Lewis Michael Seidman, Professor of Constitutional Law at Georgetown University.

LOUIS MICHAEL SEIDMAN, PROFESSOR OF CONSTITUTIONAL LAW AT GEORGETOWN UNIVERSITY: I've got a simple idea: Let's give up on the Constitution. I know, it sounds radical, but it's really not.

. . . the Constitution also contains some provisions that are not so inspiring ... Suppose that Barack Obama really wasn't a natural-born citizen. So what?

. . . we have to start making decisions for ourselves, and stop deferring to an ancient and outdated document.
