Homegrown Terrorists From the Right? Not Likely.

The West Point Center apparently thinks the political right has the gumption to use terrorism to get what they want. Their controversial new report says so.

West Point Center Cites Dangers Far Right US.

Never mind Occupy Wall St, last year. Never mind leftists saying the government should kill all gun owners, and conservatives. Never mind that the majority of politically motivated attacks in this country are done by leftists(though sometimes against their own kind a la Gabby Giffords).

Military Officers recently came up in the comments of the article here, Moore on Leadership.

It appears that the Officer class of the United States is becoming very Colonial British. The Officers are now coming from a separate class, if you’re not a gentleman you’re not an Officer. Unfortunately being a gentleman today apparently means being a liberal twit.

The wars are being finished and the military gutted. The real Officers, the combat leaders, even the non-combat leaders, are being shown the door in favor of those with lips and noses more suited for advancing themselves.

The officer class is becoming as it is in academics. It is quickly becoming a new area of entrenchment for liberals. That’s unfortunate because it means not only an influx of more stupid policies and projects, but also likely going to bed with countries and groups that are actually our enemies.

The only good news is that the work in the military is run in the enlisted ranks and the Officers are really becoming nothing but window dressing. Still if the liberal Officers do a good enough job screwing things up then the traditional conservatives who join the military will stop enlisting. It’s probably at that point that the nation splits, which will probably be blamed on the right so maybe the West Point Center is on to something.

  1. A bio of the document’s author here: http://www.ctc.usma.edu/posts/experts/dr-arie-perliger

    Doesn’t sound like he has any military experience outside of the classroom (no indication that he is either an officer or prior enlisted as far as I can see).
