If this article does not serve as a wakeup call for all those on the fence regarding who your loving government now considers a “terrorist” I don’t know what will. The power structure loves to use language to divide and conquer their subjects, and this report is a perfect example of that technique. These days, when the term “far right” is used in the mainstream media or in government/military reports, they are talking about those that believe in the Constitution as the supreme law of the land. A preeminent set of laws that must be followed by everyone, including the President, Congress, large corporations and the military. Meanwhile, the “moderate right” is defined as Neo-cons. You know, the torture loving, Constitution-ignoring, militaristic chicken-hawks that still hold on to the reins of power within the Republican establishment. This is supposedly the “moderate right,” while the “far right” just wants to uphold the Constitution and Bill of Rights. Of course, the power structure doesn’t want to have to deal with the Constitution any longer, so of course those that defend it are “far right” or “terrorists” in the mind of the state.
The report I am referring to was just released by the Combating Terrorism Center at the U.S. Military Academy and it is titled: “Challengers from the Sidelines: Understanding America’s Violent Far-Right.” From the Washington Times:
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.
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.”
No more Al Qaeda, you are the terrorist now. I and others have been predicting this for many, many years. We have arrived.
It says anti-federalists “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. Finally, they support civil activism, individual freedoms, and self government. Extremists in the anti-federalist movement direct most their violence against the federal government and its proxies in law enforcement.”
They also like to lump “white supremacists” into these conversations in order to make well meaning, but ignorant, people automatically associate the two, even if such an association is completely inappropriate. It’s the same slimy strategy that Obama used when he read letters from 3rd graders during his gun control speech. See here:
So there we have it. A West Point think tank states that if you “support civil activism, individual freedoms, and self government,” you are a threat and a terrorist. The writing is on the wall.
