Enem(ies) of the State Featuring Military Veterans, Conservatives and Tea Party Members as the New Terrorists
The Federal Government has aggressively attempted to label Liberty Lovers, Tea Party members, Constitutionalists, U. S. Veterans, Conservatives, and Second Amendment supporters as Terrorists. In its full spectrum attack, it seems almost daily an article or news segment is produced depicting freedom-loving Americans or homecoming Veterans as “the new threat to the security of this nation.”
You need look no further than the articles below to confirm that the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is fully committed to demonizing anyone who shares a Conservative viewpoint.
DHS Warns of Radicals on the Right
I am a Veteran. I voluntarily enlisted in the United States Marine Corps and swore to support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic, and according to the DHS report, Rightwing Extremism: Current Economic and Political Climate Fueling Resurgence in Radicalization and Recruitment, I am considered a threat to the very country I served with honor.
“U) Disgruntled Military Veterans
(U//FOUO) DHS/I&A assesses that rightwing extremists will attempt to recruit and radicalize returning veterans in order to exploit their skills and knowledge derived from military training and combat. These skills and knowledge have the potential to boost the capabilities of extremists—including lone wolves or small terrorist cells—to carry out violence. The willingness of a small percentage of military personnel to join extremist groups during the 1990s because they were disgruntled, disillusioned, or suffering from the psychological effects of war is being replicated today.”
Let me be perfectly clear.
I LOVE Freedom.
I LOVE Liberty.
I LOVE the US Constitution.
I am being labeled a potential Terrorist by our Government and further echoed and demonized by mainstream/state-run media organizations; so I ask you, how should I explain such madness to my daughters?
I grew up an Army brat…
I lived on military bases for the entirety of my childhood. Being the oldest of five siblings, I spent my childhood playing outside with friends. I grew up oblivious to the worlds’ problems, as all children should. I was allowed to be a kid.
Our parents taught us wrong from right. We were not exposed to racism as children, instead we were taught to honor and appreciate the relationship.
In order to make the team, I had to try out; I practiced. I was rewarded when successful and encouraged when I failed.
I was taught to love our Nation, Flag, and our unique history and standing in the world. I was taught to love recklessly, respect others, and always fight for what’s right. Looking back on my childhood, Christian values were woven throughout it allowing me the opportunity to choose the path of righteousness.
After four years in the USMC, I decided it was time to take the leadership and technical skills learned in the Marines into the private sector with as much hope and determination as I could muster.
The next two years would forever change my life, as I became the father of two beautiful baby girls, now almost 15 and 17 years old. In 1999 I was still mostly oblivious to the world of politics – I was a sheep pursuing a life of my own success.
I was 27 when the tragic events of September 11th, 2001 played out. It was a wake-up call for me; I suddenly realized how fragile our Republic had seemingly become.
Awakened I began paying attention to the world in which we live and what I have learned since is terrifying.
It is increasingly apparent to me that such methods of race baiting, division, class warfare, and demonization of the Conservative movement are being aggressively implemented – as if in some script of a demented movie.
Except this is no movie…
I am watching the soft-kill destruction of the United States of America, and I can no longer sit on the sidelines while God, love of country and conservative principles are being removed from our society.
My dear friends; I am living proof of what our great nation offers those willing to work hard. Today, I am a small business owner and IT Consultant. None of this success, however, is ultimately important if I cannot live in a country that protects our Citizens’ and the rights granted each of us by God. What opportunities will my children be afforded when we live in a society that can only be summarized by George Orwell’s book, 1984?
So what do I tell my daughters?
Simple. I tell them that I love God. I tell them that I love my Country. I tell them that I love my Family.
I am one of the Three Percent prepared to defend, with my life, the very threats to Freedom that our Forefathers warned us against – Big Government Tyranny. I am a Patriot. I am a Countryman. I am a concerned U.S. Citizen.
I will forever honor my Oath as a United States Marine and will continue teaching my children the importance of history. I will encourage my girls to stay true to their faith and principles; to be accountable, and to remain honorable to themselves and others.
If these beliefs and principles categorize me as a Terrorist in the ever-seeing eyes of this tyrannical government, so be it – Molon Labe. I will be judged one day, but until then, I will continue to fight Tyranny at every corner.
I am very proud to be one of the newest members of Team Ninja. We will flip this script. Truth Wins.
