Do You Support "Individual Freedoms"?...
Dan Norcini

Then guess what - according to a study done by a West Point "Think Tank" funded by none else than your own taxpayer money, America needs to be warned against you and those like you! Think I am making this idiocy up? This is an excerpt from the article:

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."

The center — part of the institution where men and women are molded into Army officers — posted the report Tuesday. It lumps limited government activists with three movements it identifies as "a racist/white supremacy movement, an anti-federalist movement and a fundamentalist movement."

The West Point center typically focuses reports on al Qaeda and other Islamic extremists attempting to gain power in Asia, the Middle East and Africa through violence.

But its latest study turns inward and paints a broad brush of people it considers "far right."

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."

Yes, instead of studying the tactics of Islamic terrorists or digging deeper into the brilliant strategies of Alexander the Great, Genghis Khan, Julius Caesar, Hannibal, etc., what apparently is the now pressing need of US military officers is how to deal with all those folks who actually subscribe to something called "A Bill of Rights"!

My goodness, this very phrase, "Bill of Rights" is terrifyingly dangerous now is it not? It sure as hell closely resembles that dangerous belief cited in the study as "individual freedoms" YIKES!

Here in a nutshell is the conclusion that this nonsensical study has come to... are you ready? Here it comes:


It wasn't enough that the left has taken over the schools and institutions of higher learning and used those to spread its political correctness lunacy. One would have thought that at least the military academies would be immune from this. Apparently not.

Wake up folks.... the day appears to be coming sooner than many of us expected where even allegiance to the basic freedoms and rights prescribed in our Founding documents is enough to make you an enemy of the state.

Yes, if you cherish individual liberty, limited self government and a system of Federalism as laid out in the Constitution, you are now included in the same class as those who would advocate a violent overthrow of the US government.
