Of all the anti-Constitutional activities that the current administration has engaged in over the past five years, I think I’m the most surprised at how far the military has swung from the right to the left. In the past, the U.S military has been the one thing we’ve been able to count on when liberals run amok. It has always stood for what’s right, even when it wasn’t popular.
But in recent years, there’s been a big turnaround, and I believe the Obama Administration is responsible for it. It hasn’t been enough for them to take God out of the equation. No, they also have to harass Christians in the military, even silencing chaplains when it suits their needs.
Here’s the latest, and if I hadn’t read it with my own two eyes, I wouldn’t have believed it. The Pentagon is now preaching that the Founding Fathers and today’s conservatives are extremists. I’m not making this up. That means, among other things, that George Washington would not be welcome in today’s U.S. military. Neither would Thomas Jefferson nor Benjamin Franklin nor any of the other Founding Fathers.
The Defense Equal Opportunity Management Institute training guide originated from the Pentagon and was acquired through the Freedom of Information Act. (Boy, I bet that’s an Act the administration would love to do away with, right? Just give them time.)
The guide depicts the Founding Fathers as extremists and conservatives as “hate groups.” The Department of Defense warns military students to be aware “that many extremists will talk of individual liberties, states’ rights and how to make the world a better place.”
As if those were terrible things.
The text reads, “In U.S. history, there are many examples of extremist ideologies and movements. The colonists who sought to free themselves from British rule and the Confederate states who sought to secede from the Northern states are just two examples.”
Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton told Fox News, “It’s disturbing insight into what’s happening inside Obama’s Pentagon. The Obama Administration has a nasty habit of equating basic conservative values with terrorism.”
Patriotism…freedom of speech…the right to bear arms…states’ rights…making the world better…who knew that these were horrible, subversive things? But that’s what the Pentagon is telling us.
That’s how messed up things have gotten under this administration. I’d love to hear your opinions on the direction the U.S military has taken in recent years.
