Leftists Inflitrate West Point


LINK

Conservatives are now apparently the enemy.

quote:

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.


quote:

“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.”


quote:

The report adds: “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.”


quote:

A Republican congressional staffer who served in the military told The Washington Times: “If [the Defense Department] is looking for places to cut spending, this junk study is ground zero.


quote:

“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?”


I'll add labor unions to the list of "left-wing terrorists."

It lumps limited government activists with three movements it identifies as “a racist/white supremacy movement, an anti-federalist movement and a fundamentalist movement.”


quote:

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.


This seems completely unfounded. I've never seen this kind of thinking. Especially on this message board.

When viewed objectively, that's not really a bad thing. It's good to have people coming up with all kinds of ideas and another group to tell them which ones are insanely dumb. Change for the sake of change is usually a bad idea. It's sort of another check/balance system.

Didn't Bill Clinton just recently say something about one of his proudest accomplishments as President was the diversity of the military under his watch?

I don't give a damn about a diverse military. I just want soldiers that can kill and blow-up stuff.

I don't think the concern discussed in the article is the subjects the far right support necessarily. But how and to what degree are they willing to support what they believe in (aka will they get violent?).

The title of the West Point article was "Challengers from the Sidelines: Understanding America’s Violent Far-Right.”

The far-left has already demonstrated a propensity towards violence. Remember the "Occupy" movement? Union thugs? Earth-firsters? There are your violent domestic terrorists. It's the left, not right, who are violent.

Do you not think there are far right extremists? you are all being pretty snide about this.

Wouldn't Timothy McVeigh be considered a far right extremest?

I feel like they let the left wing extremists off the hook, and generalize all right leaning people as terrorists.

But clearly there are right wing terrorists and they did perpetrate one of the biggest acts of terrorism on US soil.

"They" as in the West Point think tank that wrote the article? Or "they" as in a generalization of the masses?

Whom would you consider a left wing terrorist? (No need to say Obama hahaha) I'm sure there is one...?? Cant think of one though of the top of my head. Idk
