You know, all that Constitutional rights jargon is just so passe’. Forget all of that silly “freedom of religion” and “freedom of speech” and “freedom of assembly” stuff. If you are a member of our military forces, you must know your enemies. And if you are just a regular freedom-loving, church-going citizen, you must know – you ARE the enemy.
During some routine training in Fort Hood, Texas, some soldiers allege that they were alerted to a few groups that might pose a threat, specifically evangelical Christians and members of political groups like the Tea Party.
Don’t donate to the tea party or to evangelical Christian groups — that was the message soldiers at a pre-deployment briefing at Fort Hood said they received from a counter-intelligence agent who headed up the meeting.
If you do, you could face punishment — that was the other half of the message, as reported by Fox News.
The briefing was Oct. 17, and about a half-hour of it was devoted to discussion about how perceived radical groups — like tea party organizations and the Christian-based American Family Association — were “tearing the country apart,” one unnamed soldier said, to Fox News.
Among the remarks the agent allegedly made: Military members who donate to these groups would be subject to discipline under the Uniform Code of Military Justice, the soldier reported.
Liberty Institute has stepped in to investigate. Michael Berry, one of the nonprofit’s attorneys, said he has been advising the soldier about his options — but that in the meanwhile, he said the American public should be on guard.
“The American public should be outraged that the U.S. Army is teaching our troops that evangelical Christians and tea party members are enemies of America and that they can be punished for supporting or participating in those groups,” Mr. Berry said, in Fox News. “These statements about evangelicals being domestic enemies are a serious charge.” (source)
If you’ve been paying attention, however, this should come as no surprise. Patriot groups were the first suspects mentioned during speculation in the aftermath of the Boston Bombing. A politician recently likened the Tea Party to the KKK. Christians are being targeted as “extremists” and “hate groups”.
We have reached a point where any group who does not agree with the government (and actually has the nerve to say so) is targeted as an enemy, a dissident, and an extremist. Many have predicted that the military will one day be used against us – we need only to go back to the Boston Bombing to see how a militarized force locked down the city in an unofficial martial law, searching homes without warrants and rolling down the streets in tanks.
When the soldiers are trained to see their own citizens as the enemy, it is only a matter of time before what we saw in Watertown, Massachusetts spreads across the country. Before churches are targeted. Before attending political meetings becomes as dangerous as visiting a war zone to hand out cookies. Before we must live in fear of our own forces in our own country.
Be ready – your own group or political affiliation just might be named as a potential terrorist organization next.
