Pentagon says active-duty military personnel are "extremists" if they LIKE funny memes mocking wokeism
Joe Biden's left-wing cabal running things behind the scenes is working overtime to destroy the last remaining functional, patriotic institution in our country: The military.
And they are gaining ground fast, setting us up to literally lose the next war.
Using the phony excuse that "extremism in the ranks is rising" (and remember, even if that were true, it's rising under Biden, not that 'Nazi' Donald Trump), the Pentagon "issued detailed new rules ... prohibiting service members from actively engaging in extremist activities," The Associated Press reported
, adding this tidbit:
According to the Pentagon, fewer than 100 military members are known to have been involved in substantiated cases of extremist activity in the past year. But they warn that the number may grow given recent spikes in domestic violent extremism, particularly among veterans.
So there really aren't that many cases of "extremism" -- whatever that
means -- and there is only a vague belief that extremism could
rise. Got it.
And let's call this what it is: Left-wing 'extremism' being used to justify going after any service members who support Donald Trump, are conservatives, and do not dance to the tune of Marxism.
"Officials said the new policy doesn’t largely change what is prohibited but is more of an effort to make sure troops are clear on what they can and can’t do, while still protecting their First Amendment right to free speech. And for the first time, it is far more specific about social media," The AP reported, going on to describe what the Pentagon is keeping on its radar:
The new policy lays out in detail the banned activities, which range from advocating terrorism or supporting the overthrow of the government to fundraising or rallying on behalf of an extremist group or “liking” or reposting extremist views on social media. The rules also specify that commanders must determine two things in order for someone to be held accountable: that the action was an extremist activity, as defined in the rules, and that the service member “actively participated” in that prohibited activity.
Again, what are 'extremist views?' That term is about as arbitrary as it gets.
Veterans know that most often what is termed 'improper' is decided by commanders and senior enlisted personnel. If these leaders have bought into the Biden regime's Marxist claptrap, then "extreme" is liking a pro-Trump meme, which, once upon a time, would have been protected expression and speech under the First Amendment.
And contrary to leftists' beliefs, our military is not filled with dummies who can't get a 'real job' or 'make it in the real world.' As a community, the U.S. military is among the most-educated demographic, which explains why most members are not simply buying the 'extremist' label. They want to know more, as the AP pointed out:
What was wrong yesterday is still wrong today, said one senior defense official. But several officials said that as a study group spoke with service members this year they found that many wanted clearer definitions of what was not allowed. The officials provided additional details about the rules on condition of anonymity because they were not made public.
Biden's regime has been clear from the outset who it considers 'extreme,' and that is anyone who believes in or adheres to conservative/Republican political and cultural thought, and this was known within a few months of Biden taking office.
"The Department of Homeland Security under Biden-appointee Alejandro Mayorkas is plotting to strip their political opposition of their rights by declaring them 'suspected domestic extremists' and putting them on the No Fly List," DC Clothesline reported in mid-March
In particular, the regime is considering placing anyone who was at the U.S. Capitol Building on Jan. 6, even if they didn't do anything, on the No Fly List.
Here's a case in point:
Robert Rundo — a member of the Rise Above Movement who was arrested in 2017 for fighting with antifa at Trump rallies and charged with “conspiracy to commit rioting” and “travel or use of interstate commerce with intent to riot” under the archaic Anti-Riot Act — said last year that he was put on the No Fly List in 2017 under the Trump administration even though the charges against him were thrown out by a California judge.
We cannot survive four years with Biden's Marxists. Our institutions will collapse.
