If You Quote The Founding Fathers You’re An Extremist According To The Pentagon

How upside down is this country we live in? The FBI won’t investigate mosques because someone might be offended. But if you’re an American who quotes the Founding Fathers, according to the Pentagon, you’re an extremist or part of a hate group.

Once more, military training has become an Orwellian re-education camp where a radical transformation of the truth depicts the Founding Fathers as extremists and conservative groups as “hate groups.”

Naturally, the training manual relies on the work of the SPLC, the same organization that lists The Other McCain as a hate group, for its material. Doesn’t that make you feel all warm and fuzzy inside?
