right-wing-terroristSocial Sciences Professor Arie Perliger of West Point’s Combating Terrorism Center has issued a report titled Challengers from the Sidelines: Understanding America’s Violent Far-Right which implicates  “right wing” Americans as “anti-federalists” – guilty of more than 350 acts of violent terrorism against the government in 2011 alone.  What defines a right wing anti federalist? According to Perliger’s remarks:

“they support civil activism, individual freedoms, and self government.”

The good professor, obviously not biased nor using his position in one of America’s oldest and most notable military academies as a catalyst for his discriminatory and hateful opinion based report, goes on to define what an anti federalist right wing terrorist really is in more detail:
“[they] 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.”
In Contrast, Perliger heaps praise onto the socialist left:
“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 report says. “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. While far-right groups’ ideology is designed to exclude minorities and foreigners, the liberal-democratic system is designed to emphasize civil rights, minority rights and the balance of power.”
The Washington Post reported a response from an unnamed republican congressional staffer who summed up my opinion of Perligers stereotypical, ignorance based report pretty well:
“If [the Defense Department] is looking for places to cut spending, this junk study is ground zero. 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?”
What’s disturbing to me is that this is the type of person we all run into as soon as we enter into the hallowed halls of the super duper schmooper college campuses. This is the type of discriminatory belief system which is representative of many of our upper level educators and they’re filling our young people’s minds with this goop. People like this Perliger fellow are too book smart for their own good, while most likely unable to find their way out of a wet paper sack if the need should arise, due to a lack of life experiences which are rooted in the concept of common sense and which convey a level of knowledge no book could ever contain or professor of liberalism 101 could ever comprehend.Mr. Perliger is no better than a racist who groups and segregates based on skin color and his insight, which would come in handy if left near a toilet, is the most insulting and discriminatory report since the 2009 Department of Homeland Security report Rightwing Extremism:
Current Economic and Political Climate Fueling Resurgence in Radicalization and Recruitment which said pretty much the same thing – basically if you aren’t a socialist then you’re a racist lunatic terror sponsoring murderer.And yet it’s the left who supports terrorizing 1.4 million unborn humans each year, in the U.S. alone.  It’s the left who’s economic policies are growing the poor and shrinking the prosperous. It’s the lefts policies which would open the floodgates of illegal immigration while reducing our military capacity to defend our existing citizens. It’s the lefts decision to appease our enemies, causing more long term conflicts and deaths which would be avoided if we just dealt with our enemies head on. It’s also the lefts agenda to regularly attack articles of our Constitution.

This report is pure unbridled ignorance in the form of discrimination against those of us who love our country  and want whats best for our children.
