Military ready to purge Catholics and Protestant Evangelicals?

by bunkerville @ http://bunkerville.wordpress.com/2013/04/06/m... ...

So now Catholics and Evangelical Protestants are classified as “extremist” religious groups alongside al Qaeda and the Ku Klux Klan.

The military is getting ready for the purge of any servicemen and women who may not be ready to turn on their fellow citizens? Recall first West Point think tank warns of dangerous conservatives?

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.” And just who are these “Violent Far-Right” folks?

It says anti-federalists “espouse strong convictions regarding thefederal 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.”

Now we learn that the DOD is moving on for the purge?

The presentation identified seventeen religious organizations in a slide titled “religious extremism.” They include al Qaeda, Hamas, the Filipino separatist group Abu Sayyaf, and the Ku Klux Klan, which the slide identifies as a Christian organization..

The Defense Department came under fire Thursday for a U.S. Army Reserve presentation that classified Catholics and Evangelical Protestants as “extremist” religious groups alongside al Qaeda and the Ku Klux Klan.

“Men and women of faith who have served the Army faithfully for centuries shouldn’t be likened to those who have regularly threatened the peace and security of the United States,” said Col. Ron Crews, a retired Army chaplain and the executive director of the Chaplain Alliance for Religious Liberty.

“It is dishonorable for any U.S. military entity to allow this type of wrongheaded characterization,” Crews said in a news release.

The Archdiocese for the Military Services, a Catholic organization that trains and endorses military priests and chaplains, said in a release that it was “astounded that Catholics were listed alongside groups that are, by their very mission and nature, violent and extremist.”

“Religious extremism is not limited to any single religion, ethnic group, or region of the world,” the slide explains, in language that closely resembles the text of a Wikipedia page on “extremism.”

While outfits such as al Qaeda and the KKK are explicitly violent, the presentation also lists Catholicism and evangelical Protestantism as extremist groups.

The AMS called on the Pentagon “to review these materials and to ensure that tax-payer funds are never again used to present blatantly anti-religious material to the men and women in uniform.”

WHO IS RUNNING WEST POINT NOW BIN LADEN?WERE IS THE military court martial!!!!!

While you homosexuals vehemently reject being considered mentally ill, You RealDave have no problems regarding those who dislike your deviant homosexuality behavior as mentally ill.

As for there being no proof that people are born with a specific sexual orientation you're wrong. There have been numerous studies that would tend to confirm this.

Where's your facts that prove the opposite?
Anyone can pull out some bullshit link from a gay dude trying to get people to see things the way he wants them to. I trend to go off common sense &13yrs of experience with my own kids & numerous cousins, 1 niece, & 2 nephews. None of which were born anything & neither are they gay! That's no more than an excuse. In order for the quote"every man is born equal," to hold any truth, everyone would have to be born equal! In order to be born equal, everyone without natural reasons should be able to reproduce. 2 men, 2 women can not reproduce! That #1!#2, in the world of reality people learn to like things. You weren't born with a favorite color, a favorite type of music, or racist! How can you like something you have no exists, or when you lack the brain capacity to even process the thought of such a thing? At what age does a child realize they're gay or straight? Why is it that gays can recollect the specific time & date when they knew, yet straight people don't even remember? I'll tell you. When it's normal, your subconscious takes over, but when it's not normal you consciously remember everything. Mainly because it scares your memory. You people must be alien or something, or maybe I am & just don't know it! But if I am most of the world is also! This is the age of the internet, & you believe everything professors & scientist say. Problem is, science is continually proven wrong, or steadily evolving. That's funny! People know they're born gay, yet don't remember shit else for at least the next 3-5yrs.

I love it. Eman & dumbass Jane support the party that think women should be paid less then men for doing the same job as they voted against Equal Pay.

Then they blame the other side. I have news. That only works amongst you uneducated & uninformed right whiners.

Everyone else can see what you are doing.

Eman spent half a day calling me a racist, bigot, against women all because I point out those aspects of the right whiners that post here.

He tries to provede cover for these lowlifes just as Jane does.

And we wonder why right whiners are called bigots & racist. Its because either you make racist or bigoted posts or you defend those that do.

Just how GD pathetic are you people?

get ready for the next 11 million illegals

Are Democrats serious about border enforcement? It’s supposed to be the trigger that would allow illegal immigrants to start on the path to citizenship.

Why is a trigger necessary? To prevent a repeat of the 1986 fiasco where amnesty was granted and border enforcement never came — giving us today’s 11 million living in the shadows. Yet just a week ago, Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano, referring to border enforcement, averred that “relying on one thing as a so-called trigger is not the way to go.” Regarding legalization,“there needs to be certainty.” But not for border security?

And she’s the person in charge of securing that border. Now listen to President Obama:“Given the size of the border, it’s never going to be 110% perfect. What we can do is to continue to improve it.”

The usual Obama straw man. Who’s asking for 110% enforcement? And the need is for something a lot more than just improvement. The objective is to reduce a river to a trickle. It’s doable. The two sections with triple fencing outside San Diego have reduced infiltration by 92%.

To be sure, the Gang of Eight enforcement trigger is not ideal. The 11 million get near-instant legalization — on the day, perhaps six to nine months after the bill is signed, when Homeland Security submits a plan (with the required funding) to achieve within a decade 90% apprehension and 100% real-time surveillance.

This plan triggers “probationary” legalization, which in reality is permanent, because once the 11 million register, it is inconceivable their status would be revoked.

Let’s be clear. A mere DHS enforcement plan is a very weak trigger. I would prefer legalization to occur later, once the plan is actually carried out and some independent body certifies that the border is essentially closed.

But that simply will not happen. Democrats control the Senate and the White House, and they will only agree to a weaker trigger. Which is? Legalization first — i.e., living here openly without fear of deportation but nothing more until the border is controlled. Until then, no one even starts on the path to citizenship — no green card, no naturalization.

So why is Obama undermining even that compromise, asserting that “this earned pathway to citizenship” must not be “put off further and further,” that it must be “certain”— not contingent on verifiable benchmarks of border closure?

Are he and Napolitano signaling to their hard-core open-border constituency that they will try to sabotage passage of any law that has a serious enforcement trigger, or that they will try to sabotage enforcement if a strict law is nonetheless enacted?

Why? Isn’t border control an elementary principle of sovereignty? What country deliberately forfeits the right to decide who gets to join its communal life?

Remember: We’re not talking about the 11 million already here, who will be legalized as a matter of both practicality and compassion. We’re talking about the next 11 million. Without border enforcement, they will be here. If you don’t build it — the fence, the visa-tracker, E-Verify — they will come.
