Perpetrating Myths About The Right And Spinning Up The Left

SEE HERE The Combating Terrorism Center at the United States Military Academy, West Point, warns about far right groups in a report posted Tuesday (Jan 16, 2013).  Judging from the excerpts summarized in this account the report regurgitates left-wing prejudices rather than engage the serious issue of left wing extremism in the country. 

 “While far-right groups’ ideology is designed to exclude minorities and foreigners, the liberal-democratic system is designed to emphasize civil rights, minority rights and the balance of power.”

That quote says it all.  The reality is that the left in this country is the primary source of ideology marginalizing minorities and foreigners through programs which trap them in a cycle of dependency.  Moreover, looking through a liberal lens the report apparently can't see the dangers posed by the Communists, Marxists, and Socialists that inhabit the left and that have captured many otherwise benign and useful movements. 

I looked around for some information on the author of this report and discovered he was a coauthor of a book on Jewish Terrorism and that Oathkeepers doesn't much like him: HERE  That being said, the report sounds rather superficial and agenda driven.
