    "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."

    I'm not sure one must be "far right" to think the government is corrupt, as evidenced by Congress having a 10% approval rating...

    One additional thing within the study: The report says there were 350 “attacks initiated by far-right groups/individuals” in 2011.

    I'm wondering where, when and what these attacks were? I'm wonder if their including any of my posts!

    I think by "far-right individuals" they are counting Rush Limbaugh and Glenn Beck.

    Well they get to decide what far right is, so they can pretty much come up with whatever number they want. I say once you start attacking people far right isnt the appropriate label. I'm basically a liberal and there are just as many far leftists terrorizing people. Setting fire to a logging companies office is just as much a terrorist act.

    Well I guess then, every person living in the United States of America falls under this clause. Because at one time or another every American has had that thought run through their mind at some point in time. Even the main "steam" media say things that apply to that too. How many elected officials have been indicted on criminal charges? So those who thought to bring charges would also fall under that clause too?

    From article;

    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.”

    END

    How many of you are willing to bet that once they are retired, probably 2/3 rds. of their(West Point's) graduates would be included in this group.
    Study sounded like socialist propaganda to me.

    This is absolutely sickening...it is like the left wants to have a war so badly that they will do and say anything up to and including classifying the law abiding defenders of the Constitution and the Bill of Rights as "domestic terrorists"...If they want this war so bad, then they should be man enough to draw first blood.

    Here it is on TheBlaze: Terrorism Center at West Point Warns Against Danger of American Limited-Government Activists and ?Far Right? | TheBlaze.com

    I'm betting those "350 attacks" in 2011 were non-violent verbal attacks that hurt their feelings...BOO...HOO...HOO.

    Re: West Point center cites dangers of ‘far right’ in U.S.

    Wow!

    Well, can we expect future officers to be indoctrinated in this tripe?

    If so, we might want to change their oath of service. Eliminate that pesky clause about defending the constitution from foreign and domestic enemies. Replace it with something about future-seeing, progressive thinking....

    Ya know, I really didn't like Atlas Shrugged . But, it does seem to be accurate.

    I just hope future leaders don't swallow this balderflop. I know better, but that is my hope.
    Rats!
    It could be worse!

    Hm. Sounds a lot like the originating principles of the young republic.

    • Justifiable circumspection about a heavy centralized government separate from the People (their "anti-federalist" euphemism).

    • Involvement of the People in their civic duty to be actively engaged in their governance in all its forms (their "civil activism" accusation).

    • Strong support for and defense of individual freedoms, without which a People loses its strength.

    • Strong local (aka, "self") governance mechanisms, to keep the solutions close to the problems, close to the People, helping to keep the People close to their means of governance (aka, self-government, if you agree governance close to the people is self-government [not zero-government]).


    Sounds like the purveyors of that "study" need to re-read their history. I'm all for pointing out clear threats from violent elements, whatever direction they might be coming from. But to extoll these virtues, ones that once were broadly accepted in the new-found states, as evils and warning signs is over the top. Heinous might even be the word, in this climate where accusation and claim if all too often taken as being equivalent to proof.

    "Junk study" is a pretty good name for it. So far as I know, West Point isn't a noted counter-terrorism think tank. It's a military college. Perhaps they should stick to that.

    That being said, perhaps a full read of the report would change the view. To be fair, we're reading the article, itself merely a summary of things with its own agenda and POV.

    Strange...pretty much every soldier I know has been very pro-2A. So the government is employing terrorists after all?!

    Very similar to DHS/Napolitano handbook to police a couple of years ago.

    Returning vets are the biggest terrorist threat since they are skilled in the use of arms.

    This is all propaganda from a socialist administration trying to discredit Republican, or any other opposition.
