Washington Post: The Pentagon Wants To Take a Harder Line on “Domestic Extremism.” How Far Can It Go?

How do you save “our democracy”?

How do you oppose the rise of “fascism” and “authoritarianism”?

  • You start by demonizing an entire racial group and fomenting racial hatred against them
  • You build a razor wire fence around the U.S. Capitol and order the military to occupy Washington, DC
  • You construct a police state that coordinates with private actors to trample on the Constitution
  • You deplatform the president of the United States and millions of his supporters from social media in a coordinated ideological purge of “domestic enemies”
  • You organize lynch mobs to intimidate juries
  • You attack local police departments
  • You usurp the rights of the states to control their own elections
  • You have “journalists” hunt people down, dox them and get them fired from their jobs for their political beliefs
  • You organize online lynch mobs to intimidate and punish your fellow citizens for expressing their views
  • You engage in ritual shaming like in communist countries
  • You create a surveillance state and cultivate a snitch culture like in East Germany
  • You criminalize your political opposition by declaring vast swathes of domestic political opinion to be “domestic extremism” because it is “extremism” to believe our elites have rigged the system
  • You conduct an ideological purge of the military
  • You bankroll and lend political support to private militias and celebrate them when they break the law and engage in violence against your political opposition
  • You attack all the constitutional rights of your opposition from the First through the Tenth Amendment
  • You get the banks to cancel people
  • You tamper with election laws
  • You get powerful CEOs and corporations to bully and punish state legislatures for defying your will
  • You use the law only as a tool to suppress your opposition
  • You spy on people who are exercising their rights

After you do all of this, you convene the National Security Council, Department of Homeland Security, the Pentagon, the Department of Social Justice, the FBI and so forth because there are people who are “far right” and they are making fun of our elites on the internet and some of them even had the audacity to criticize and vote against Hillary Clinton in 2016 which is a national security theat.

Washington Post:

“Pentagon officials are considering new restrictions on service members’ interactions with far-right groups, part of the military’s reckoning with extremism, but the measures could trigger legal challenges from critics who say they would violate First Amendment rights. …

Austin, who has pledged zero tolerance for extremism, ordered the review after the events of Jan. 6, when rioters including a few dozen veterans — and a handful of current service members — stormed the U.S. Capitol in an attempt to overturn the presidential election results. …

Officials reviewing military rules on extremism, which do not reflect the amorphous, largely online nature of today’s far right, also are considering a move that would ban “mere membership” in such groups.

Some activists argue that the prohibitions should be more sweeping because, in their view, even interactions with extremists in an online forum, for example, constitute active participation in a potentially violent movement.“It’s not so much their opinion; it’s them being involved with other extremists,” said Mark Pitcavage, an expert on domestic extremism at ADL, which tracks hate groups. …”

Extremism would be things like “liking” or “retweeting” the wrong person or sharing a Pepe the Frog meme or having a Confederate flag tattoo or ridiculing a “journalist” and causing “trauma’ or having views on subjects like immigration or political correctness or American heritage which are more in line with public opinion than with elites. Burning down Minneapolis is fine and isn’t an “insurrection” so long as the violence is carried out in the name of a righteous leftwing cause like Black Lives Matter.

  1. “The Pentagon wants to purge alleged “domestic extremists” from the military”

    We’re quickly reaching Soviet Union terrain – that a place where everyone had to nod to certain ideas, be regularly subjected to hearing them being aired, and no publick dissent would be allowed.

    In terms of denunciations, and deportations, we’re closing in on The Soviet Union, too – if only in the electronick realm.

    Yet, here there are viable collective ways to push back, whereas in the erstwhile Soviet Union there was not.

  2. @ Yep, thee sindicate did.all that and we are still here and here we will remain, because its our damm country.

  3. The Photo….the logical conclusion of the Cold War for the Cold War was inseparable from the Civil Rights Movement for Blacks….

  4. The lefties are the new Nazis??? ???

    Who didn’t see that coming? Of course a basic study of history soon reveals that Marxism and Nazism are totalitarian bastard twins, both giddy to trample on basic human rights to build their idea of heaven on earth.

    Lefties stupidly believe in the perfectability of humanity. Thus, they feel less restraint than people on the right do about enacting hare-brained utopian schemes that will cause incidental suffering, (however great). After all, if you’re creating heaven on earth, even the deaths of millions, hundreds of millions or of billions is, in the final acvounting, morally trivial.

    • Bullshit.

      National Socialism was authoritarianism and nationalism.

      Out of curiosity, what is your preferred form of governance? Democracy?

    • You don’t know what you’re talking about. Adolf Hitler was a visionary who loved his people, elected democratically by the German people of all classes. He understood that the jewish International Banking Cartel was bleeding his country dry just as any honest person can see the jews doing the same thing today in all White European countries. The first thing he did was to close down and expel the Rothschild owned banks and the rest of the parasites that existed living a life of affluence while the German people starved. He offered every jew residing in Germany 1,000 DeutcheMarks to leave, and many did, but many decided to remain, thinking that their ideology of communism would defeat Hitler and in doing so their parasitic paradise could remain intact.

      On the other hand: “Anti-Communism is anti-Semitism.” — Jewish Voice (New York: National Council of Jewish Communists), July-August 1941, p. 23

      “Judaism is Communism and Communism is Judaism.” — Rabbi Steven Wise, a close friend of FDR

      “The Communist soul is the soul of Judaism. Hence it follows that, just as in the (1917) Jewish Bolshevik Russian Revolution the triumph of Communism was the triumph of Judaism, so also in the triumph of fascism will triumph Judaism.” (A Program for the Jews and Humanity, Rabbi Harry Waton, p. 143-144)

  5. Those “woke” assholes barely succeeded in seizing power last year, and they intend to hold on to it no matter what. The only group which stands in their way is armed and organized white conservative “patriots”.

    • @Kolya…

      “Marxism and Nazism are totalitarian bastard twins, both giddy to trample on basic human rights to build their idea of heaven on earth. ”

      Never truer words written.

    • Betcha Amin had a higher IQ. One of his more memorable quotes was “Hitler was great man!” Even old Idi didn’t actually want to exterminate whites. He just wanted the Banksteins and their British lickspittles out of the country. You can be rest assured that the pictured clown thinks of little else.

  7. All straight, White males should avoid the military or leave when their enlistment is over. The U.S. Government considers Whites to be suspect and unreliable so let the U.S. Government fill its military ranks with colored people.

    Good luck running the nuclear reactors aboard subs and aircraft carriers or the radar systems on the Aegis cruisers with their diversity. Maybe it will result in less war mongering from the U.S. Government if they can’t get their military to function.

    • Oh, outside of their daily down time for neo-vaginal dilation those tranny devil dogs are a murderous bunch.

    • @12AX7…

      Yep, Uncle Sam is quickly assembling himself a strike force of exclusive submissive Beta male city-slickers, lesbians, and transgenders.

      Oh, my – they’ll certainly fare well against Straight Rural Alpha Russian Men, won’t they?

      LOL!!!

  8. “constitute active participation in a potentially violent movement”

    Hahaha he

    People in the military could join a “potentially violent movement”

    That’s what the military is !

  9. Remember the old calendars,
    with chimps dressed as various professionals?
    We need to get the photos of chimps in general’s uniform, just for comparison 🙂
