President Obama’s Department of Defense has issued a “teaching” guide that calls our founding fathers “extremists” and advises students that today’s radicals don’t “put on sheets” but will talk of “individual liberties” reports have found.
So, according to Obama’s administration, anyone that talks about freedom and the individual liberties are latent racists–or are somehow hiding their racism–and our founders were radical extremists!
This so-called teaching guide was discovered by Judicial Watch among materials authored by the Defense Equal Opportunity Management Institute, a DoD-funded diversity training center.
As the Daily Caller reports:
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.”
The guide also urges students to use the resources of the Southern Poverty Law Center to determine what is a “hate group,” even though the SPLC is pretty much an extremist left-wing group itself.
Naturally, there is not one mention of Islamist extremism in this U.S. government “teaching guide.”
Judicial Watch president Tom Fitton had it exactly right, saying:
“The Obama administration has a nasty habit of equating basic conservative values with terrorism. And now, in a document full of claptrap, its Defense Department suggests that the Founding Fathers, and many conservative Americans, would not be welcome in today’s military,” said Fitton. ”And it is striking that some the language in this new document echoes the IRS targeting language of conservative and Tea Party investigations. After reviewing this document, one can’t help but worry for the future and morale of our nation’s armed forces.”
You’ll recall back in 2009 when Obama Department of Homeland Security said all Tea Partiers and military vets were likely potential terrorists.
