Defense Document Suggests Colonists Fighting British Rule were members of “extremist movement”

(Washington, DC) – Judicial Watch announced today that it has obtained educational materials from the Department of Defense (DOD) depicting conservative organizations as “hate groups” and advising students to be aware that “many extremists will talk of individual liberties, states’ rights, and how to make the world a better place.” The documents repeatedly cite the leftwing Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) as a resource for identifying “hate groups.”

"Extreme Ideologies:

...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."

......

"2. Ideologies

"a. Nationalism – The policy of asserting that the interests of one’s own nation are separate from the interests of other nations or the common interest of all nations. Many nationalist groups take it a step further and believe that their national culture and interests are superior to any other national group."

With all this “training” — how come they didn’t do anything about Maj. Nidal Hassan?

Yes, the so-called Progressives are the most intolerant of anyone who doesn’t agree with them.

The list of traits in the manual applies to them, yet nobody is calling them “extremists”.

as if i needed to see it in black & white for verification

When you see what is happening with DOD and our military it is frightening.

Sequester cuts
Homosexuals
Women in combat
Cutting our nuclear shield
Cutting our military satellite surveillance
Talks of mothballing Carriers
Screwing over our veterans
Training our military to attack us
Training and empowering our police departments to attack us
Buying up our ammunition.

Pretty scary stuff to anyone paying attention. Trouble is no one is paying attention.

This is where Obama has been hugely successful. He has made it hip and cool to be part of the borg. I have had more Christian, conservative, white male friends tell me that I am disloyal to obama, a hater, a marxist, a conspiracy kook- than I can shake a stick at.

That’s what happens when you have a communist sitting in the white house. I remember when we used to fight these communist bastards. I was there.

Because they are arrogant, smug liberals, and hence nitwits.

I won’t forget, communists tried to kill me.

First they called me a republican.
Then they called me a conservative.
Now they are calling me an extremist.
When they call me an enemy of the state,
guess what I’ll be?

Once again - proof... the terrorists the FedGov is REALLY after are conservatives.

This is why I don’t trust any overreach of the FedGov as they are now full-on tyrants. I was a sucker for the Patriot Act, etc. but no more.

And I say again, they have used our patriotism against us. This war on terror will end with us disarmed, impoverished, in a socialist nightmare watching christianity being eradicated by government agents as religious extremism.

That’s why I’m against all this ‘security’ BS - I won’t get fooled again. I only support liberty - never security - I am not a coward anymore. We all have to die, and I have a better chance of being hit by lightning than being killed by an islamic terrorist.


“If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen.”
-Samuel Adams

To leftists, anyone who opposes them in any way for any reason is an 'extremist'. They are attempting to characterize any opposition to left-wing ideology (as currently manifested in Obama as 'president') as an enemy. And some still think that if we can just elect a good conservative president this can all be overturned. Perhaps - but only with a strongly conservative House and Senate as well as a population that is aware of the danger Marxist ideologies have brought to our nation and want them rolled back. Unfortunately, I don't see any of that happening...but I hope I'm wrong...I really do.

I read the extremism section of the manual and 95% exactly describes most leftists, the members of this administration, and the main stream media. Unbelievable.

Just electing a President won’t do it. We now have a HUGE entrenched leftist bureaucracy - leftists LOVE government and love being part of that machinery.

We have to starve the beast - and that means all of it. Sadly that is the only answer now. We have to stop thinking this is 50 years ago. This monster is too big, we can’t think the monster will be stopped with just an election anymore.

This is why we keep getting suckered.

Afraid not.

This is a Government of the people by the people and for the people. If the people do not rise up, it is not the responsibility or the right of the military to rise up.

It is up to us, the citizens of this country to say enough, and it’s time it was said.

They never put a name to it.

There seems to be a “Defense Equal Opportunity Management Institute”

Our daughter, who was raised in our conservative Christian home, went to University of Colorado at Boulder (which has only 1 conservative professor). She graduated 22 years ago.
A couple of years ago, she was complaining about extreme far-right religious groups and I said to her, "April, you are talking about me!"
Utter silence......
