Attention U.S. Military: You are Being Demonized. This is an Extremely Important Article ... It's now becoming overt. The meme emanating rapidly from the mainstream media is that the U.S. military is a threat to the nation! It sounds very 1984 and backwards, but what isn't these days. What really captured my attention is a very clever and dangerous article published by Reuters titled "U.S. Army battling racists within its own ranks." It sounds benign enough at first and as you continue to read it all seems pretty reasonable. Who wants crazy racists running around the armed forces? Nobody. That said, there is a tone throughout that clearly attempts to make the sheeple public suspicious about returning veterans, which is bothersome in its own right considering these young men and women are being sacrificed daily by the elite power structure that would never dip their dainty little toes anywhere near any action. – libertyblitzkrieg.com
Dominant Social Theme: Champions of free speech, anti-tax promotions and the right to keep and bear arms are closet white supremacist Neo-Nazis. Watch out!
Free-Market Analysis: The real reason why they arrested former US Marine Brandon Raub and then confined him to a psychiatric ward is now emerging.
It may be part of a deliberate Pentagon policy to declare people who are vets and concerned about eroding freedoms – as Raub obviously was – to be emotionally disturbed and thus ineligible to carry or use weapons.
It seems to have something to do with a new demonization of US military personnel, as Michael Krieger over at libertyblitzkrieg.com suggests.
Krieger brilliantly dissects a recent Reuters article, and has the insight to focus on a brazen statement right in the middle of the article. (It's called "burying the lead.") Anyway, here's how Krieger presents it:
... the article didn't really get me concerned until the section where they discuss a presentation that the U.S. Army itself is apparently showing to its own troops. Reuters watched this presentation and they write:
"The standard hateful message has not been replaced, just packaged differently with issues like freedom of speech, anti-gun control themes, tax reform and oppression," the presentation says, noting that recruitment may be difficult to detect, occurring quietly "in bars and break areas" on bases.
Wow. Do you folks see what this is saying? They aren't talking about racism anymore. They are essentially saying that people that defend freedom of speech and the right to bear arms are the new "white supremacists!" They really expect people to be stupid enough to fall for this. This is incredible. A U.S. Army presentation is apparently saying that military members who believe in the Bill of Rights are the enemy, despite the fact that they have sworn an oath to protect that very document.
You see? Raub is incarcerated in a mental facility to assess his level of loony racism. Why is he considered a racist threat? Because he has written on "issues like freedom of speech, anti-gun control themes, tax reform and oppression."
