The Army has a draft manual, which lists “making derogatory comments about the Taliban,” “advocating women’s rights,” “any criticism of pedophilia,” “directing any criticism towards Afghans,” or “anything related to Islam” as “taboo conversation topics” that Soldiers should avoid.
An Army Lieutenant Colonel fired off an email to subordinates that was chock full of hate; depicting Tea Party patriots and Christians as racists and terrorists.
Now comes an Air Force manual that refers to the founders of our country as “extremists”.

Lesson Title: Equal Opportunity and Treatment Incidents

•As noted, an ideology is a set of political beliefs about the nature of people and society. People who are committed to an ideology seek not only to persuade but to recruit others to their belief. 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.
E. Recruiting Motives
•The standard hate message has not changed, but it has been packaged differently.Modern extremist groups run the gamut from the politically astute and subtle to the openly violent.
•Nowadays, instead of dressing in sheets or publicly espousing hate messages, many extremists will talk of individual liberties, states’ rights, and how to make the world a better place.
They’re not alone. FEMA feels the same way:
This anti-American tripe is being taught as a method to identify “threats”.
The State and Local Anti-Terrorism Training (SLATT) program for law enforcement, which is funded by the Department of Justice, lists political bumper stickers expressing opposition to the United Nations and support for the bill of rights as indications of terrorist activity.
Americans who have a good grasp of the Bill of Rights and oppose the presence of the anti-democratic United nations on our soil, are viewed as likely terrorists by Holder’s DOJ.
The Department of Homeland Security funded a study produced by the National Consortium for the Study of Terrorism and Responses to Terrorism at the University of Maryland, titled: Hot Spots of Terrorism and Other Crimes in the United States, 1970-2008 (PDF). The $12 million dollar document characterizes Americans who are “suspicious of centralized federal authority,” and “reverent of individual liberty” as “extreme right-wing” terrorists. Like America’s founders.
The threat to the Bill of Rights and individual liberties is now becoming militarized. The oath of enlistment contains the following words:
I, (NAME), do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same;
They’re trashing the very Constitution we are sworn to protect and defend. In essence, they are acting like a domestic enemy.
I’m angered but not surprised. This is the kind of atmosphere fostered in the wake of Janet “Big Sis” Napolitano and the current jack-booted thug in the DOJ, and the petty little tyrant in the White House.

On another note, if you don’t think the Colonists and Confederates were “extremist ideologies and movements”, then you need to re-read your history books. Don’t confuse your current, media-driven image of a “terrorist” with what the actual defining characteristics are.
If you don’t see the warped ideology in the government’s version of American Colonists being presented as “right wing terrorists”, then you need to be smacked with a cluebat.
You need to check your anger at the door. That Oath has been in place for many years well before this “terrorism” lingo has entered teh political arean. The “foreign and domestic” aspect of this includes the protection of the United States and the Constitution from teh obvious foreign intities and the domestic ones, to include the federal government who has overstepped their bounds. Read that as similiar to martial law, which we are no where near. I have taken that Oath as a current Marine Officer. We do not, as you suggest, “thrash the Constitution” and “the threat(en) to the Bill of Rights and individual liberties.” Their is no “militarization” towards a domestic enemy. The fight against domestic extremests, and yes, we do have them, is handled by law enforcement within the bounds of the law of the land that is dictated and supervised by the legislative and judicial branches of the federal government.
Dear Semper Stupid,
Did you bother to read the post and figure out why I’m so angry? The whole tone of the post is to point out what the Chain of Command is trying to do. The military hierarchy, not the rank and file, is attempting to depict Tea Party patriots and Christians (some of whom are in the military) as “racists and terrorists”. You don’t think they came up with that brilliant idea by themselves, do you? You can bet your ass they’re following orders from the Pentagon and the White House. They have adopted a policy of pro-Islamic, anti-American tripe as a method to identify “threats”. What they are doing is unconstitutional. They are violating the 1st Amendment rights of military members and trying to intimidate them from speaking out against the outrageous bullshit that passes for “training”. In addition, military officers who briefed peers and subordinates on the Islamic threat, have been bullied into silence.

READ this paragraph from the post:
Get it, jarhead??
Anyone who covets individual liberties and demands that elected officials honor the Constitution, (such as the Tea Party) are labeled as “extreme right wing terrorists” and targeted for their principles. Why do you think the Tea Party was discriminated against by the IRS?
Janet Napolitano and Obama’s “Domestic Threat Assessment” describes Iraq/Afghanistan veterans, outspoken Obama critics, people who oppose illegal aliens, and gun owners as “threats”. Which includes members of the military who stand up for the Constitution and object to having their religious freedoms and free speech rights trampled. (http://sfcmac.wordpress.com/2009/04/15/enemies-of-obamas-state/)
The federal government has become increasingly oppressive, intrusive, and ominous. It has indeed overstepped its bounds.
By the way, I’m a retired Army Sergeant First Class with two combat tours in Iraq. I first took the oath in 1976 and retired in 2006.
I don’t need any lectures from an intellectually bankrupt dimwit who doesn’t understand the correlation between raising hell over PC propaganda being shoved down the throats of service members, and supporting the Constitution.
