US Army Reserve Now Teaching That Extremists Include KKK, Al Qaeda, Jews, Catholics, Evangelicals
This would be funny if it was an Onion story - but it isn't.
According to U.S. Army training materials, Catholics, Orthodox Jews, Evangelicals, Mormons are lumped together as 'religious extremists' with the likes of al-Qaeda, the KKK, and Hamas.
Yes, those rabbis are certainly known for their fiendish suicide bombings..and let's not even talk about those violent Mormons or nuns with guns...
Odd that both Hezbollah and Shi'te Muslims were left off the list, (although Hezbollah's flag is there) but Sunni Islam was included. So was 'Islamophobia' Obviously Hezbollah aren't considered 'extremists'.
The presentation also warns that members of the military are prohibited from taking leadership roles in any organization the Pentagon considers 'extremist,' or from distributing the organization's literature, whether on or off a military installation. So any of you whom are committed Catholics sharing Papal encyclicals, church deacons sharing sermons or tracts or Jews sharing Torah commentaries or tefilim with your co-religionists are hereby warned that your extremist views WILL NOT BE TOLERATED.
And it gets better:
Citing a Southern Poverty Law Center report as evidence that extremism is on the rise, the Army Reserve presentation blames 'the superheated fears generated by economic dislocation, a proliferation of demonizing conspiracy theories,the changing racial make-up of America and the prospect of 4 more years under a black president who many on the far right view as an enemy to their country.'
Here's another slide from this presentation:
Presenters received orders to read the above slide in its entirety. Essentially, you'd better not be a member of any of these 'extremist groups' in any capacity if you're in today's Army.
What happened here is pretty obvious, although I doubt the Army brass has the stones to admit it. It's simply a reality that the vast majority of violent terrorism is committed by groups affiliated with Islam. And when the original list was made, political correctness kicked in because you know, we can't have that.CAIR might complain!
So they told the men charged with making the slide show to find groups, any groups affiliated with other faiths. And let's make sure we include 'Islamophobia'. The results would be hilarious if they weren't being taken seriously.
For instance, the two Jewish 'terrorist' groups listed, Kach and the Jewish Defense league have been dormant for years with the leaders dead or in prison.And to list Catholics instead of, say, the IRA is an absolute hoot.
I'm surprised the Amish didn't make the cut. Talk about extreme...
Jokes aside, this is a good indication of how our military is being destroyed from within. Rather than focusing on defending the country, they're forced to waste time and energy proselytizing for an extremist cult - political correctness.
