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

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.”

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.

While I have no problem looking into or studying right wing violence, because it does exist.... I take exception to the paper claiming that left wing groups are basically better.


Final stage in effect folks... Colleges, check. Schools, check.

Once they control the military, it's done.

Only dangerous threats I have heard lately have been against the lives of NRA,Tea Party members and gun owners. Except for one knucklehead on YouTube.

Occupy needs to step up the pace. 5000 arrests and they still don't make the paper??

It seems that I am quite the dangerous fellow for expressing my views. Is Obama and his ilk now wanting to limit the first amendment?

Not surprising. Many Academy graduates are far left.

McCrystal for instance. "The Darling Of MSNBC" and champion of banning sport utility rifles.

Wesley Clark, Klinton's lapdog.

Dwight Eisenhower wasn't exactly a conservative either.

Where are the Douglas McArthurs, George Pattons, Blackjack Pershings, etc now that we really need them????

Personally, I'd like to see a man like Robert E. Lee in the WH.

The first amendment is already being attacked. You can't criticize a Muslim, a gay, an atheist. You can't pray in a school or public meeting. You can't have the 10 commandments on public property. You can't sing "God Bless America" at halftime in a high school football game.
You can't put certain words in an email without being interrogated by the FBI.
