What comes immediately to mind when thinking of somebody who discusses “individual liberties?”  What if they talk about “states’ rights?” How about, “how to make the world a better place?”

Apparently if you’re the Department of Defense (DOD), it reminds you of sheet-wearing KKK members and other forms of extremism.

Judicial Watch (h/t Gateway Pundit) has exposed educational materials being distributed from inside the DOD that depict conservative organizations as being “hate groups”, and citing an extreme left-wing, hate organization, the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), as a resource for identifying such groups.

The SPLC web site had cited a mainstream conservative organization known as the Family Research Council as a “hate group”, a designation which was eventually used by Floyd Lee Corkins as an excuse to execute a shooting at the group’s headquarters.

The shocking documents were obtained by Judicial Watch in a search for materials “concerning, regarding, or related to the preparation and presentation of training materials on hate groups or hate crimes distributed or used by the Air Force.”

In a student guide entitled, Extremism, one finds the following:

“Nowadays, instead of dressing in sheets or publicly espousing hate messages, many extremists will talk of individual liberties, states’ rights, and how to make the world a better place?”

Making the world a better place is code for a KKK rally?  “Individual liberties” means go grab your local grand dragon and start a bonfire?

Judicial Watch has much more, and claims that while the documents were received from the Air Force, they generated in the DOD and have likely been used in training sessions for other military departments or agencies.

And while the DOD is seemingly okay with identifying conservatives as extremists, it should be noted that the Fort Hood terrorist, recently found guilty on 13 counts of murder and 32 counts of attempted murder, has never been classified as an “Islamic extremist” by the Pentagon, and the terror attack has been designated an instance of “workplace violence” by this administration in a blatant attempt to avoid giving medical benefits to the survivors.
