LIMITED GOVERNMENT SUPPORTERS MAKE WEST POINT’S “VIOLENT FAR-RIGHT” LIST

Since the federal government already has plans to put down a “Tea Party”-led insurrection in South Carolina (no, really), it shouldn’t shock us to learn the U.S. Military Academy in West Point is busy educating future officers about the “enemy” they’ll soon be facing.

According to The Washington Times, the Academy has issued a new report entitled “Challengers from the Sidelines: Understanding America’s Violent Far-Right.”

Listed among these “violent far-right” groups? Limited government advocates who support things like “civil activism, individual freedoms and self-government.”

Wait … what? Aren’t those principles upon which this country was founded? Of course … but supporting them has suddenly become a sure-fire way to wind up in the government’s cross hairs (ideally without any means to defend yourself).

The West Point report also discusses how these violent right wingers “espouse strong convictions regarding the federal government believing it to be corrupt and tyrannical, with a natural tendency to intrude on individuals’ civil and constitutional rights.”

Again … anything inaccurate about that statement?

Then there’s this doozy of a quote …

While liberal worldviews are future- or progressive -oriented, conservative perspectives are more past-oriented, and in general, are interested in preserving the status quo. The far right represents a more extreme version of conservatism, as its political vision is usually justified by the aspiration to restore or preserve values and practices that are part of the idealized historical heritage of the nation or ethnic community.

Huh?

Ordinarily we’d call “bullshit” on that, but God forbid a domestic spying program interpret such criticism as “hate speech.”

Welcome to the new America, people … where it’s quickly becoming criminal to be “American.”

“The crazy violent right”?
I’ve not heard the “crazy violent right” advocating the murder of officials, like the gun grabbing left has. The gun grabbing left has advocated the murder of gun owners, NRA members and officials and others who disagree with them!
The same left which passed the HIPPA laws prohibiting sharing info on people who commit these heineous acts and should not have access to guns.
The same left who advocate the MURDER of ONE THOUSAND FIVE HUNDRED innocent unborn children every day!
The same left who fought and continue to fighrt removing GOD from schools, prayer before athletic events, want nativity scenes removed, crosses removed and refuse MY righrt to worship or pray in public.
Yes, we are crazy right? Maybe we are, well…Just RIGHT and the crazy left are, JUST WRONG!!

The statement “foreign and domestic” was intended to convey that that the military would fight enemies overseas and at home. It did NOT mean wage war on American citizens. In fact, it is against the law to use the military on American citizens.

Or at least that is what we were taught in the USMC. An we do know a thing or two about the military.

Different execution of similar plans, OBD. Under Bush, it was relatively few firearms, and they all were carefully tracked. Under Barry, it was thousands of guns, and they didn’t track them. See how that works? Oh, and under Bush, there weren’t any murders attributed to the scheme, and certainly no US Border Patrol agents.

Those guys espouse the same shit as the Unabomber. Ted’s manifesto reeks of rightwing hate we see today. Here’s a taste if you haven’t checked it out:

“Almost everyone will agree that we live in a deeply troubled
society. One of the most widespread manifestations of the craziness of
our world is leftism, so a discussion of the psychology of leftism can
serve as an introduction to the discussion of the problems of modern
society in general.”

” Leftists tend to hate anything that has an image of being strong,
good and successful. They hate America, they hate Western
civilization, they hate white males, they hate rationality.”

There is no political ssolution for the problems we face in America today. In fact , most of the problems were born of politics.
As a freshman in college in 1968 one of the required readings was George Orwells, 1984. I thought that it was the biggest piece of trash that I had ever encountered. Little did I know that it would really happen. If you have never read this book, I suggest that you do.
What I can tell you with no reservation is, “As bad as it is today, it’s better than it will be tomorrow”.
The generation behind me has been indoctrinated by political correctness and does not have the gut to even speak out against the society we have seen eveolve. Remember above all that the senior leaders of today were the hippies of the 1960’s and 1970’s and that says it all.

As a hard-core participant and semi-hippy of the late 60’s & 70’s I take offense to that.

Gas was 20-50 cents/gallon (oil got kicked in the ass in 1973 and it ain’t never been the same since- but that is a whole other story), rock & roll was worth a shit,genital herpes and AIDS were not on the radar and antibiotics could take care of anything you got!!

I’ll take the late 60’s & early-mid 70’s over this shit any fucking day!!!

Seriously, never forget it was the “boomers” born between 1945 – 1954 who bore the brunt of the Vietnam war – God bless them.

Actually, the better book to read is “Future Shock” by Alvin Toffler. Which was required reading for engineering/architecture students when I was in college back in the 70’s.

1984? Not so much unless you really want to see too much into the current situation. Remember, the protagonists in George Orwell’s book are conservative in nature

Future Shock?? I see evidence of that everywhere I turn and experience it every day. Been that way since personal computers took off in the late 80’s-early 90’s and only getting worse.

Toffler is a genius IMHO.

Don’t kid yourself, Obama could give a shit less about what happened in Newtown, all he’s concerned about is using it to keep and gain more power in order to keep the Democrats in office. All he is doing is pandering to his base. And, it’s the same had a Republican been in his position. At that level, every thought, action, and reaction is about power, making sure you keep what you have and do everything you can to get more.

It was a big deal when they figured out that the scopes they had on their guns had Bible chapter/verses on them. I think Trijicon was the manufacturer. Things like serial numbers or something, like 2COR for Second Corinthians.

The military does try to keep that stuff quiet for the most part. Individual soldiers have every right to practice their religion otherwise, that is nothing to really attack.

Besides, Saudi Arabia has a much more stringent set of theocratic laws and we have been quite friendly with them for a while.

Wow, it’s strange how truth comes out sometimes.

Sparkle, I feel for you bro-truly I do.

That being said, I think you need to place the blame squarely on the source responsible for sending you in to such place to have your pysche damaged-and that is GOVERNMENT.

It’s is not “you people”, there is a difference between SOCIETY & GOVERNMENT. The Sociopathos would like to dispel that notion, but it is true none the less.

It is not part of a healthy human psyche to kill other humans and come away emotionally intact. No matter what the circumstances, even in pure self defense.

The reason government and its cheerleaders always talk in this ridiculous context of “we” is they want to you to buy in fully. When the gov’t takes your money and you don’t want it to, it’s not them taking your money-it’s “WE”.

When gov’t fucks something up, whether spending more than it takes in, or some pol goes off the rails in corruption….it’s not the pol or gov’t in thier minds thats at fault, it’s “WE” according to their propoganda machine.

The first step in coming to terms with your demons Sparkle is to understand the cause of your trauma to begin with, and in my estimation instead of blaming society(and people) as a whole…blame the ones that put you there…the gov’t.

Best Regards to you.

Obviously “Reason” is not savy enough to recognize sarcasm/satire when he/she reads it…… But then again, most TEA Partier/”Don’t Tread on Me” types won’t “get it”

Seriously, I did experience some PTSD (a few nightmares & some anxiety attacks after I got back home from my 2nd. tour). The 1st & 3rd ones were nowhere near as intense. I have helped a few other vets talk through a few episodes (but that was friends and relatives – I’m NOT a trained counselor).

It took me few years before I could enjoy watching a big fireworks display. After my 2003-2004 tour, it was at least two years before I even thought about going to a 4th of July fireworks show. I used to love shooting bottle/skyrockets but even after 8 years I can’t light one off now without watching it go up with a totally different point of view. Simply put, I don’t enjoy fireworks like I used to and I’m damn near 60 years old. I was 49 during my 1st tour, 50 my 2nd tour, and celebrated my 52nd birthday in Iraq in 2005 during my 3rd tour.

There were(and still are) reservists/guardsmen & women who are GRANDPARENTS serving in Iraq/Afghanistan.

That is probably the first time a sizeable percentage of middle-aged men/women have served in that capability. And all did a damn good job serving along side troops were were their children’s age.

I personally took a US Congressman (Bob Inglis) to task for the “sending our young men & women overseas in harm’s way” talking point during a local town hall meeting. It just shows how little most of them really understand.

Please mull that over a bit……..

Like we were all briefed or if you read any of the literature, make sure you TALK to someone. The worst thing is to keep it bottled up inside. IAVA (Iraq/Afghanistan Veterans of America) is a good source for questions/sounding off. It’s a good organization and I’m a member.

SparkleCity January 20, 2013 at 1:32 pm

@By?

Thank you but I don’t blame the government and I don’t feel like a “victim”. I’m just like every other man/woman who served in a military force since organized military units were formed (ironically in Mesopotamia – modern day Iraq of all places..) and experienced the same situation since those times.

No more, no less

The only thing that I am fairly torqued about is all the conservative “chickenhawks” who have never served a day cheering the whole damn thing on from the start. The neocons lied about WMD(sadly even Colin Powell never called BS on it). The conservative entertainment radio talk shows were full of “good God fearing conservatives” calling in who ate the whole thing up crumb for crumb and questioned anyone’s patriotism for calling BS on the whole thing. I also served in Gulf 1 and I can tell you a camel can’t even take a shit over there without us knowing about it. But so many “patriotic” types had a hard-on to try and change the region to our style of democracy (and the oil companies sure as hell wern’t going to try and stop them) and had their minds made up so off we went…

What fools they were………

Now I’m NOT referring to the “War on Terrorism”. I didn’t agree with Bush 2 on much ( I greatly respected his dad Bush #1) but he was correct in saying (right after 9/11) that it might take decades for us to take care of this (if ever). This past week’s attack is proof of that. As a consequence of 9/11 we have lost some of our personal freedoms and privacy of which I’m sure you would agree. But that is a dirty type of war and it takes dirty methods to fight it.

Maybe all we can ever do is marginalize terrorism but we have to try.

My personal opinion is that we should be more like Canada or Sweden but as long as we have some who have a set of hot-nuts (but not the guts to go themselves) to keep shit stirred up, it probably won’t change.

I still believe the government is US (maybe I’m hopelessly naive) so I won’t blame the government for any trouble but the people who let it happen. What is it, less than 50% of elgible people actually vote? And of the percentage who do vote a lot of them don’t want others voting anyway but their own way and are doing everything to make sure that happens(gerrymandering, excessive voter ID laws,etc.) Ultra-conservative shit like that.

These are the same ones now who cry “Obama is going to take my fucking AR-15 and my 30 round magazines to boot” on conservative entertainment talk radio shows when the fact is before this most recent TERRIBLE tragedy, gun control was hardly an issue at all.

Like Joe Scarboro on “Morning Joe” said,this most recent tragedy has changed all that. I tend to agree with Joe.

I truly do believe you will lose even more freedoms under a hard-right administration than you ever will under a moderate or even “liberal – “lite” administration. Especially if the hard right is joined at the hip with the right-wing religious organizations.

Maybe “Pogo” was right,”the government is us and WE are the problem”(or something like that).

It’s a pretty day, enjoy it!!!

Keep it under your DIRECT confuckingtrol when you’re at home. How hard can it be. Damn.

Bad guys will always be bad guys. If the gov’t gives them the edge, it’s your own damn liberal fucking fault. Don’t ever take a fucking knife to a goddamned gun fight. Sheesh, dumbasses.

Get over your pussy self, be a man, woman, whatever, do the prudent thing, arm your fucking self. Grow the fuck up.

What was it that was said and I don’t know by who, god made man, smith and wesson made them equal.

It will have been a decent run of about 100 years for the good ol’ US of A. Due to the emergence of the internet, the loonies on the right and the loonies on the left are accelerating the United States form of democracy along the product development life cycle as the ability for the USA to govern itself has been completely lost. The US is now officially an idiocracy as we enter the decline stage of the product life cycle. You “generational inbred red neck conservatives” and the “gov’t owes me a living liberals” need to step aside for China and its brand of capitalism. And to think the fucking neocons have the stupidity to believe that other parts of the world should adopt America’s model of democracy.

Interesting observation.

Yes, the internet allows for a quick dissemination of information sadly a lot of the info is totally bogus and rife with rumors. But I guess it keeps the whackos on the far left and right a place to vent.

However, I would say a classic liberal does not say “the government owes me a living”. The liberals I know feel the government should provide some type of subsidy or aid for those less advantaged. IMHO the ones saying “the government owes me” are usually not liberal at all but merely looking for a way to take advantage of the system. And as I posted earlier, most of the time you can reason with a liberal (the ones I know anyway) but forget about reasoning with a hard-core conservative. It’s their way or the highway. Like the dinosaur that is a good way to become extinct.

I don’t think China is an economic model to adopt. That saying “Capitalism (or democracy – take your pick) is a screwed up concept EXCEPT compared to everything else” is pretty spot on.

In all reality all great nations/empires experience a decline. I don’t think we are there yet but this polarization sure as hell ain’t helping matters any.

From what I have studied, all great nations/empires grow either through economic or military conquest/domination. I think economic conquest is the preferred method myself. You tend to get hated/resented using military conquest/domination as the primary mode for staying on top and start paying though the nose to keep on top that way.

Like ol’ Ben Franklin is reputed to have said: “All in moderation” (except sex & sleep IMHO)

In other gun nut related news, this from The Star Tribune:
“They knew the Delano house far too well. It was where Christian Philip Oberender, then 14 years old, had murdered his mother in a shotgun ambush in the family rec room in 1995.

Now, 18 years later, Carver County Sheriff Jim Olson was sending his deputies back to the home where Oberender still lives. Just two days earlier, Olson had scanned the day’s shift reports and froze when he tripped over Oberender’s name. A scan of a Facebook page then showed firearms spread out like a child’s trophies on a bed inside the home, along with notes about the Newtown, Conn., gunman who shot 20 children to death.

What Olson’s deputies found in the home was chilling: 13 guns, including semi-automatic rifles, an AK-47, a Tommy gun, assorted shotguns and handguns, including a .50-caliber Desert Eagle.

Even more disturbing was the letter Oberender had written recently to his late mother, Mary: “I am so homicide,” it said in broken sentences. “I think about killing all the time. The monster want out. He only been out one time and someone die.”

Hmmmm – just saw where potus took his “oath of office” inside the White House, rather than show his face to his “people”, most of whom traveled to DC to seem him do it. This just shows his disrespect and cowardly attitude. I wonder if he gave his “oath” with his hand on a Bible – probably not.

Have you ever read the Constitution, dumbass? Read it and see by what date the Constitution mandates that the President must take the oath of office – dumbass! I guess you are too stupid to understand why the private ceremony today and then the public oath of office tomorrow – figure it out, dumbass.

And he is using two Bibles, dumbass.

You are obviously too stupid to be posting on here.

Yep, you’re right

Usually by their tones and syntax you can tell they are lapping up every single thing that conservative entertainment talk radio hosts say and encourage their listeners/callers to say over and over and over again. Kinda like Hitler was able to sway a great deal of the population in Germany. What’s the saying: “tell a lie often and loud enough and it becomes the truth”.

They rail at the “mindless drones’ moniker when in reality they exhibit all the symptoms of “group think” in spades.

“Agree with me and I’ll stroke you, disagree with me and I’ll put you down”

Thanks, Blues, for setting me straight. I had a lapse of memory, so I read the appropriate sections of our Constitution. You are exactly correct in each and every minute detail regarding the dates and methods for a presidential inauguration – it’s all there. WOW! How could I have forgotten?

Politically, where do I fit? Seriously

Beliefs:
Guns are good, if you can make it or grow it from natural ingredients then it is okay to consume it,
believe in church, still trying to decide about God, prostitution should be legal, sex with other races is natural, homosexuality is warped and should be kept private but is harmless,to each his or her own but not for me, harming children should be punished with death, corruption is worse than murder, death penalty is not used as often as it should, taxes are out of control, fees are taxes, gambling is a great pasttime, electoral college is a rig, immigration should be globally legalized,
land rights are trampled on by govt, hunting/fishing licenses are wrong, the state and federal payroll should be quartered.
That gets most of it? Is there a party for me? oh, polygamy should be legal I guess if all parties consent.

I’m pretty much with you

A little “tweaking” here & there… but the basic concept is OK with me

You do know the conservatives here in South Carolina that run things would kill your beliefs in a New York minute don’t you??

I’m an EXTREMELY PROUD INDEPENDENT myself but it is damn near impossible to breach the “traditional mindset” that is so damn prevalent in the state of South Carolina.

The state is doomed to place 47th – 49th in just about every category as long as the present state exists.

That’s why I’m in favor of merging into the state of “Carolina”

That is the only hope to get above the 50% percentile with the “old” state of North Carolina taking the lead.
