Skip to comments.Defense Department guide calls Founding Fathers ‘extremist’
Posted on 08/24/2013 10:44:15 AM PDT by Bigtigermike
A Department of Defense teaching guide meant to fight extremism advises students that rather than dressing in sheets modern-day radicals will talk of individual liberties, states rights, and how to make the world a better place, and describes 18th-century American patriots seeking freedom from the British as belonging to extremist ideologies.
The guide comes from documents obtained by Judicial Watch and is authored by the Defense Equal Opportunity Management Institute, a DoD-funded diversity training center.
Under a section titled extremist ideologies, the document states, 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.

Fumigate the DoD.
Yes, those who do not bow down to tyranny are extremist. How dare they not worship oppression! Reminds me of that leftist article I was reading the other night speaking about the people “serving Obama”. Serving? Oh excuse me, but last time I checked it’s suppose to be the other way around.
And guess what azzholes? We’re still here!
Well, we call people who call the Founders extremist traitors!
Communist Goals (1963) Congressional Record—Appendix, pp. A34-A35 January 10, 1963
#30. Discredit the American Founding Fathers. Present them as selfish aristocrats who had no concern for the “common man.”
(I knew the Confederacy had more in common with the US Founding than anyone wants to admit.)
If this is really true, it’s getting scarier.
God forbid you speak up and confront the politicos! (Unless they are perceived as conservative politicos - then it’s all good.)
This says more about the people who wrote the guide than the founding fathers. Only communists would call those seeking freedom, liberty and justice, “extremists”.
This is another “phony” scandal that needs to be relentlessly pursued. The people who wrote and approved the guide need to be put before the public and questioned.
To England, they were extremists and traitors. To this day, people in the UK consider our Founding Fathers nothing but traitors.
If the DoD has the funds to produce such drivel then clearly the sequester has not squeezed out enough waste, fraud and abuse from it.
What exactly is the DoD now defending? it certainly isn’t us.
Does not surprise me at all.
Extremists is an appropriate term to describe the Founding Fathers imo. However, the anti-constitutional republic Defence Department undoubtedly knows that “extremist” will mean different things to low information citizens than it will mean to patriots who have actually studied the Constitution.
Well, there you go——they’re completely open with it now.
Muslims, queers, and blacks who murder whites.
The opposite situation, is when the public rises against tyranny, and the troops remain loyal to the tyrant, the rising is crushed. (For example when the Mongolian troops, sent into Hungary by Kruschev in 1956, crushed the Hungarian Revolution. The Kremlin did not dare trust Russians to do the job, because Hungary looked like paradise compared to Russia at the time.)
Why if the Obama Administration is not thinking in these terms, would they be trying to disparage the legitimacy of the Founding Fathers' vision for America?
We need to make very sure that those in the Armed Forces understand that those traditional American values, being called in question, were--unlike the false dogma being promoted in Washington today--grounded upon Experience & Reason.
If the politicians now running the Defense Department won't do it; we have to find ways to make certain that those who enlist to defend us, really understand what their oaths to support the Constitution really mean.
In the meanwhile, this is further evidence as to why the House needs to set up a Committee to draft a bill of Impeachment.
Whatever this is, it does not subvert the only oath to service that every service member takes; to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States, so. . .
What on earth are those idiots we sent to Congress allowing to go on down there???
people wanting to keep slavery legal have less to do with the Founders than you think.
is seceding an option, yes.
are there consequences to seceding? yep.
are there morally valid reasons for seceding? sure. Refer to Revolutionary War.
are there craptacularly awful and immoral reasons for seceding? there sure are.
are good moral reasons for seceding and craptacularly awful immoral reasons for seceding equal? heck no.
History is written by the victors. And for the last 100 yrs. Socialism has been winning...and re-writing history.
You should have read some of the posts by those on this board on the recent Lincoln thread....
The “idiots” don’t represent US...they represent the Federal Government and its bureaucracy to us!!
Read the bio’s on those in charge and PUKE!!!!!!!!!!
I’m pretty sure I’m an extremist then...
It’s almost as if there are no GOP constituents who ever scrutinize the crap that comes out of our government. You would never know by any evidence that the GOP is in control of House or Representatives either. Speaking of traitors...
There are neo GOP who share some of these viewd
Remember folks, the commissars are in charge. We are in deep Kim-chee.
The way I see it - “Extremism in the pursuit of liberty is no vice.....moderation in the pursuit of justice is no virtue.”
That is the absolute truth. The GOP never speaks up about ANYTHING. They’re only interested in their own power.
“The people who wrote and approved the guide need to be put before the public and questioned.”
I disagree, they need be put before a wall and shot.
Everyday just when I don’t think it could get worse, something like this pops up. This nation is in such a death spiral nothing can save it now IMO, NOTHING. We have gone over the falls without a barrel or passed crush depth in a sub. No escape. I know now how those guys felt in Custer’s regiment.
The day is fast approaching when those of us who insist we are one gender or the other will be called extreme.
Fill the army with homos, radical feminists, blame-America-firsters and chase out all those who actually believe in American freedoms and the Constitution, and it's almost game over for the real Americans. The totalitarian socialists win.

The Pentagon, less than a decade after the al Qaeda
Atrocities attacked the Pentagon itself,
now has the audacity to get on its knees,
arm al Qaeda (and cover it up),
as it attacks US citizens, impugning them???
The Girl Scouts are more trustworthy.
“There are neo GOP who share some of these viewd”
Perhaps this is why Mr. Boehner ran unopposed in 2012. The Democrats did not want him to be replaced as speaker with a possibly more effective leader.
George Washington was a bigoted, radical extremist because he knew that sodomy was not conducive to good order and discipline in the US Armed Forces and he swiftly kicked them out. The rest of the Founding Fathers was also bigoted because they thought that sodomy was a degenerate and immoral practice. Obama knows better than all the Founding Fathers. they were all bigoted old fools. All braindead democrats believe Obama over George Washington and the rest of the Founding Fathers. If you say sodomy is a perverted and immoral practice you are now the bigot, and the sodomist is praised and worshipped and glorified. Welcome to SickoLand, aka the World of Obama, the country’s first sodomite president, and hopefully the last.
teaching guide? Students? Just who are these intended students in the DOD? Maybe it’s part of Parachutes 101? Put these manuals downrange in the “Artillery for Beginners” course and shoot until they are gone. Maybe the genius who wrote it would be happy to keep score?
Ha! Agreed! Question them then shoot them!
...advises students that rather than "dressing in sheets" modern-day radicals "will talk of individual liberties, states' rights, and how to make the world a better place," and describes 18th-century American patriots seeking freedom from the British as belonging to extremist ideologies."
The Department of Defense is offensive to Americans who still posses a functional brain.
Clean up this central socialist government!
Someone needs to ask them about those cushy jobs offered to ‘retired’ DOD boys - from the companies they threw business to...
This is the Dept of WHOSE Defense? Certainly not ours!
This is chilling.
