My favorite line....

This guy is a terrorist and traitor... clearly he does NOT support the founding principles!

You need to attend "Sex Week" at University of Chicago

I'm sure there is a class on learning to enjoy it.

Seriously, is that not just some mind blowing stuff? A class on how to get into "swinging." That is how we impart family values in our education system.

So, how does EVERYONE feel about the education at West Point?

So, how does EVERYONE feel about the education provided at West Point, these days?

Everyone's happy?

Bear with me. I'm a bit concerned that something MAY NOT be quite right...

Teaching methods and materials change often there, just as at any other undergraduate institution. It's difficult to answer your question with precision unless one is a recent graduate or instructor.

I would guess that it's at least as PC as it was when I was a cadet several decades ago, probably more so now.

I hear you. That's interesting, thanks for point it out.

I hear you.

That's interesting, thanks for point it out.

What I also found VERY interesting is this Mr. Professor's bio (I linked, below), his background, and ESPECIALLY his date of entry in the U.S. and when he became more and more active, up to his current position.

VERY interesting reading.

It's also one of the most expensive educations

at roughly $400,000 tax dollars per graduate.

I am a terrorist

I tell my Government officials to do what I want or I won't vote for them again, using fear to influence them. I'm a terrorist lol.

1st Amendment anyone?

The individual who refuses to defend his rights when called by his Government, deserves to be a slave, and must be punished as an enemy of his country and friend to her foe. - Andrew Jackson

More like 2nd amendment any1...

Problem is voting wont change anything... look at how power has culminated in the halls of government. Plus with vote fixing, voting is the dumbest way for people to think that things will change.

These crooks are no more leaving their posts of power because too many "regular" people want "their" handouts... and so the politicians use fear to convince their "voters" to vote for them.

But, the 2nd amendment serves ONLY when the Militia of the several States are in action and formed.

WE NEED TO BRING the MILITIA of the Several States back! Only then will the 2nd Amendment have served its purpose.

I agree. This West Point issue is serious.

Original article at American Free Press
http://americanfreepress.net/?p=8607

It's unbelievable that these future military leaders are learning of a "violent far right" that refers to:

~ those who “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.”

~ "anti-federalists, fundamentalist Christians, survivalists, gun-rights advocates, libertarians, pro-lifers, and those who oppose high taxation."

~ those who believe "the American political system and its proxies were hijacked by external forces interested in promoting a New World Order."

Our United States Congress is okay that it's being taught at West Point that fiscal, social, and/or libertarian-oriented conservatives are deemed a danger to America?

When we try to pick out anything by itself, we find it hitched to everything else in the Universe.
~ John Muir

Cat got your tongues?

LOL! "Top topic" and not one comment... Don't think I've ever seen that before.
Are we, the verbose DP regulars, speechless?

This is the article that got my posting privileges revoked:

It may be due to it being old news?

I know a report about this came out last month.
http://www.mediaite.com/online/west-point-military-study-war...

From that same article, DHS has also "unclassified" this type of "target" in a much broader sense to include "patriots" as of 2009.
http://www.fas.org/irp/eprint/rightwing.pdf

This has been going on for some time, and it's also similar to the memo's that were passed out last year to law enforcement agencies, regarding certain types of bumper stickers and U.S. flags on vehicles.

Regardless of whether it's old news or not, it's still a very important topic - even if someone re-posts it 6-12 months later this year. I for one, will always +1 this topic.

Then again, it may be due to something else entirely.

Perhaps there are few comments

because this article already got extensive coverage across the DP when it came out a month ago.

See http://www.dailypaul.com/270913/paper-is-warning-americans-o...

Ron Paul - Honorary Founding Father

Or when Alex Jones

Started saying 3 years ago that according to The gooberment,their number 1 and 2 enemies are #1-returning Veterans and #2 - Constitutional Patriots.

What can I say?

Tax parasites learn that taxpayers are their enemy.

Seems logical to me!

Free includes debt-free!
