Social 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.”
“[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.”
“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.”
“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?”
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.
