Pentagon guide labels the Founding Fathers as extremists

August 23, 2013

 A newly discovered Defense Department guide has labeled people who speak of states’ rights and individual liberties as extremists:

A Department of Defense teaching guide meant to fight extremism advises students that rather than “dressing in sheets” modern-day radicals “will talk of individual liberties, states’ rights, and how to make the world a better place

  Of course we know they are talking about the Tea Party here, and did you notice the way the report likens the Tea Party to the KKK? This is not surprising when you remember the infamous Department of Homeland Security’s infamous right wing extremist report, but this guide go even further by labeling the Founding Fathers as members of an extremist group.

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

  To be honest I actually understand where the Department of Defense is coming from with this statement: The colonists and the Founding Fathers took up arms against the government, it doesn’t get more extreme than that, but the implication is clear: The Tea Party is dangerous because, much like the Founding Fathers, they are willing to take up arms to take down the United States government and that could not be further from the truth.

  The Tea Party does want change, and while that change might be dangerous to the elite political ruling class, they are working within the system to render that change. There has not been one instance of violence carried out by anyone within the Tea Party. In fact it is just the opposite, most of the violence we have seen in recent days has come from people who skew to the left and yet there is not one mention of that.

  Nobody is talking about anyone on the left eschewing sheets when in fact is was Democrats who were wearing the sheets all those years ago.

    I’ll tell you who the dangerous extremists are. They are the folks in government who take an oath to defend the constitution and don’t. Like the people in the DOD that wrote that crap!

      You have that right, the radicals are in the government and the people who support it!

    It is true the the sheets of generations ago were worn by those who now carry the torch of the new world order. An order that would deny those rights guaranteed by the founders. But I must tell you the sheets of yesterday although repugant to many today, were used to hide the faces of those who opposed a repressive occuptional federal rule imposed by military force following the War for Southern Independence—I’m not excusing the actions of the KKK when it comes to their brutal treatment of the newly freed black man. But at the same time defending their efforts at controlling their efforts to the Radical Republicans in Washington to punish the south following the war. Something that Lincoln would have opposed had he lived. Contraditory to todays revisionist history the Klan did have a role in restoring some sense of pride in the south following the devastating defeat in the War. Call me racist or whatever for these beliefs, but they are mind and quite honestly I don’t expect many in the north to agree. But afterall, isn’t this what makes this a great country. The right to expess unpopular opinions and avoid political correctness where everyone must tow the mark on contemporary values is what makes this the greatness nation on earth.

      And if I am not mistake the KKK was founded by General Forrest as a club for ex-confederate soldiers as a social club. I could be wrong about that, but it is hard for people to look at it today and take in the whole of what was going on back then wrap their heads around it.

        There is some truth to that. General Forrest was one of the early founders. According to Gen. William T. Sherman, Forrest was the most outstanding leader produced by either side in the War Between the States.

        Sherman was right, Forrest was one of the most feared leaders of the South. And in my opinion, and I think you are going to like this, Sherman was a borderline war criminal for what he did on his infamous march trough Georgia.

    Right on Ron. Those of us who attended public school in the 50’s and 60’s know our history and know you’re spot on. On another note I have long argued with retired military friends and acquaintances that the PC DOD cannot be trusted and may well go along with Obama’s staying in power at the end of his second term. To a man they disagree citing the average enlisted man and officer would not fire on US citizens. A dictator can be very persuasive especially with the topi military brass backing him up. Fantasy? Maybe…maybe not. Gob bless our founding fathers. By the way, MLK is now being hailed as a true founding father by the usual suspects.

      I find it hard to believe that if ordered to the military would fire on the American citizen, unless Obama can contrive a huge uprising on the streets and make it a national security issue.

        But then again the drones could do most of the dirty work.


      • August 24, 2013 8:24 am

        Good point!


      • August 24, 2013 12:05 pm

        As I recall the military fired on citizens at Kent State, but then they were only National Guard. And again fired on citizens at the Univ of Mississippi after being federalized and under federal control. Soldiers do what they are told!

        In 1928 WWI veterans and their families marching on Washington DC were fired upon by DC police and were later cleared out by the Army under orders from then president Herbert Hoover. Anyone is capable of brutality against their own as we have seen around the globe for the past 4,000 years or so . We can’t underestimate the cowardly power hungry bunch now in control.

      Good points and let us not forget that even Washington raised troops and marched on the American people, although the mere presence of the troops was enough to bring the “rebels” in line.

    Well this is not much different than the “right wing extremist” warning put out by the DHS a few years ago. Meanwhile they totally “forgot” about those wacko Islamists and Left Wingers like the Giffords shooter.

    I’m sure it’s not political, right Steve?


    • August 24, 2013 7:54 am

      Political? Nah! Just another coincidence. 😉 This is nothing but a continuation of the DHS right wing extremist report, meanwhile there still is no left wing extremist report. The feds are still looking to divide us by attack its opponents and turning the people against anyone who opposes Obama. This has got to be one of the most divisive regime’s in history.
