Danger from the Patriots! LA Times warns U.S.

Peril from ‘patriots’ reads the headline from the LA Times. They claim more dangerous than International terrorists..The survey going on at the link now is reading “Should we worry about patriot groups”? is reading 95 percent no, 5 percent yes. Wander over if you care to share your opinion.  In what has to be the most absurd piece of writing, the “Neanderthal” patriots love their guns is really the gist of it. So if the government grabs them, we will be so much better for it. Keep in mind, there were no illegal guns at Waco.

The U.S. needs to keep a close watch on the growing threat of home-grown extremist groups

 Patriot groups first began surfacing after the massacre of a bizarre sect by federal agents in Waco, Texas, in the early 1990s.

Just a reminder below:

 

There are, in increasingly frightening numbers, cells of angry men in the United States preparing for combat with the U.S. government. They are usually heavily armed, blinded by an intractable hatred, often motivated by religious zeal.They’re not jihadists. They are white, right-wing Americans, nearly all with an obsessive attachment to guns, who may represent a greater danger to the lives of American civilians than international terrorists.The Southern Poverty Law Center, which has been tracking hate groups for 30 years, released its  latest report on the growth of these organizations this week. Its findings were, to say the least, alarming.

Patriot groups are motivated by a host of anti-government attitudes, but their primary focus is guns. They are convinced that the government is out to seize their weapons, even though most legislation is focused on keeping guns out of the hands of criminals or restricting the types of weapons that can be sold. Many are also united by belief in an outlandish one-world government conspiracy theory positing that the United Nations is poised to strip away American property rights and impose socialism on us all.

The typical patriot acts within his free-speech and 2nd Amendment rights, and in fact most patriot activity consists of venting steam by meeting with like-minded Neanderthals and firing off blog posts threatening civil war. (So now they tell us).

West Point Think Tank warns of dangerous “Conservatives”

This story indeed has a worrisome twist. What is the purpose of indoctrinating West Pointers to fear those of us who love Liberty? Since when do those who support freedom are to be perceived as dangerous? A new look into the machinations of those in power to grind away the perception that those who love God and Guns are dangerous folks. Here we go:

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.” And just who are these “Violent Far-Right” folks?

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.”

The report also draws a link between the mainstream conservative movement and the violent “far right,” and describes liberals as “future oriented” and conservatives as living in the past.

“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.”

Shouldn’t the Combating Terrorism Center be combating radical Islam around the globe instead of perpetuating the left’s myth that right-wingers are terrorists?” the staffer said. “The $64,000 dollar question is when will the Combating Terrorism Center publish their study on real left-wing terrorists like the Animal Liberation Front, Earth Liberation Front, and the Weather Underground?” Read more: Washington Times
