The War on Patriots: Patriotic Americans, Survivalists, and Military being Targeted

Do you love America, Believe the Constitution is the law of the land and respect the founding fathers? If you answered yes to any of those questions, your federal government thinks you might be a threat to the nation.

Over the last couple of years patriotism, something that was once considered a virtue, has somehow become a threat to the powers who run the country. We’ve listed numerous examples of this in the past, but over the weekend it became even more apparent as major media outlets from around the country jumped at the chance to tie the LAX shooter to the “patriot movement”.

LAX Shooter described as belonging to the “Patriot movement”

NBC News reported that the suspect may have been influenced by propaganda of the antigovernment “patriot” movement. They went on to quote The Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), who on their website described anyone who disagrees with the current administration, or thinks the Department of Homeland Security has grown out of control, as a hate-filled extremist who belongs to the “patriot movement.”

As we reported earlier this year, the SPLC has started a crusade against what they call “Patriots” and “Survivalists”.

In a report prepared for U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder and Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano, the SPLC asked the Federal Government to create a new inter-agency task force which will be dedicated to tracking and taking down conspiracy theorists, survivalists, “Patriot groups” and the “American radical right”.

What I find most bizarre, is the term patriot movement. In the past, being called a patriot was akin to being called an American; today that term seems like something dirty that you now have to hide.

Navy Told to Remove ‘don’t tread on me’ Union Jack Flag

Navy JackThe Navy Jack is the ‘don’t tread on me’ flag, something that goes back to the earliest years of the republic. It’s been a symbol that members of the Navy have proudly flown and warn on their uniforms for years; in fact, an amendment to the Navy code called SECNAV Instruction 10520.6 clearly states that as of 31 May 2002 all ships are to fly the flag throughout the duration of the War on Terror.

According to the Daily Caller, Navy SEAL commanders have now banned SEALs from wearing the flag, because “The Jack is too closely associated with radical groups,” – a.k.a Patriots.

Isn’t patriotism kind of that the point of the military? Do we really want people in the military who aren’t patriotic?

Department of Defense Lists Patriots as the Enemy

Earlier this year, Judicial Watch a government, legal, and judicial Watchdog Group, obtained Department of Defense Training manuals that listed the founding fathers as an example of an extremist group.

The training manual said, “In U.S. history, there are many examples of extremist ideologies and movements. The colonists who sought to free themselves from British rule and the Confederate states who sought to secede from the Northern states are just two examples.”

The document goes on to warn military members that it’s their duty “to help combat extremism in the military.”

We have a government that’s declaring war on the thoughts, opinions and principles that founded this country.

What happened at LAX is heartbreaking. In my opinion, anyone who seeks to do harm to other people is truly a sick individual. That being said, this tragedy has nothing to do with patriotism; and anyone suggesting that it somehow has anything to do with patriotic people should be ashamed of themselves.

Unfortunately, just like many of the recent tragedies, there are now going to be those who exploit the situation for political gain. In my opinion, those people  are almost as disgusting as those who take part in these senseless acts of violence.

      No one really has OPSEC. Nearly every purchase you make is recorded by the company from which you purchase-Lowe’s, Costco, etc. Even if you pay cash, if there is a member number required (Costco, Sam’s Club), they can know your purchases.

      The federal snoops now have the “right” by law to look at your bank accounts and credit card accounts to see how and where you spend your money. If you come up on their radar, they can find out everything about you. It would not surprise me to learn that they are creating databases that can turn up preppers just by searching for certain bulk food stores, gun shops, seed companies, hardware stores, etc. THEY virtually have the capability to learn everything about anyone.

      Still, unless you are on there radar screen, you may remain somewhat innocuous. At least for now.

    It’s ironic that the SPLC claims to watch hate groups when they are among one of the most hateful and radical groups in the world.

    The fact that the media continues to quote SPLC, and the fact that the feds are working with the SPLC tells me exactly what they think of us “Americans”

      @Joe-You are so right! The SPLC is a longtime leftist organization that HATES anybody and anything that supports our Founding Fathers and the Constitution. How ironic that the beliefs and actions of “Extremists” is the very thing that enables the SPLC to be able to spew their left-wing, anti-American views.Wake up folks!!!!

    I reckon the govt have more or less admitted they have lost the war on crime, so they are now changing their tactics and aligning themselves with the original ‘owners’ of the country and calling everyone else a terrorist. You guys seriously need to organise yourselves to take your country back from the thieves

      Many of us want to do just that and are trying. The problem is that there are so many people on the government payroll, and so many oblivious ignorant boobs blindly backing them, that organizing is akin to forming a terrorist cell. I have discovered via a FIOA request, that even being loosely affiliated with a constitutional militia is enough to get FBI background checks run on you without your consent. Mine was run, and there’s no other reason for that to have occured. It’s going to get ugly…

    I’m so tired of the government and people in general. I wish we could separate the country into liberal and conservative states, then lets see who does better. However, I will gladly give McCain, Graham, Crispy cream Christy, and a whole host of others to the liberal states. This government is just as bad as the other useless ones in the world. I can’t wait for an economic collapse so all the morons that vote for liberals can cry and die.

    My problem with the article is that the “training manual” is never listed, so that we can verify the information ourselves.

    I don’t doubt some of this, but I worry when people tell stuff without giving the references, because they can take stuff completely out of context.

      Me too… What’s even more offensive is that she was given a secret burial like Osama (if you believe the load of horse sh!t that “we got him”). The Real America died in 1913, thanks to the Federal Reserve.

    Back in the good old days, this once great nation was the Icon of the world. Now it is the laughing stock on the world. It didn’t just start with obama. It started with Woodrow Wilson. And grew into what it is now. Obama put it on the fast track for sure. We are going down the hill fast and when we hit bottom soon, we will all suffer the meaning of going to hell in a hand basket. Our country has done more than it fair share of taking care of the world, and for what”? we haven’t gotten anything in return but dead bodies. Our loved ones that left here to fight a war that we had no vision of winning in Vietnam,Iraq, Afghanistan, we lost those three wars, and at what cost,Lives of Americans, Billions of dollars, and to what did we get out of of this, nothing but condemnation from other countries. Thin of the murder we have committed all in the name of freedom. Freedom for who? not us we have no freedom when our sons and daughters fathers and mothers are forced to fight a war where they die over who can show who is a bigger ass our president are theirs.
    We have no freedom of religion when we are told every step of the way what we can say and not say what we can display are not to, No freedom to say white pride, but black pride is okay, are gay pride is okay. Pro abortion is the choice for mothers who don’t take birth control are the male as well, what freedom does the unborn have? What freedom do we have when we are told what we can and cannot wear, are told we can not fly old Glory because it might offend someone. The use of our money we have to pay into the government to use to support savages in the rebel armies of Syria who do nothing but kill innocent Christians, beheading them and raping them . And yet we send them several billion in aid money all the while here back home we are told how we have no money for schools, nor health care, we cut back on the V.A. we close down memorials, have to cut jobs. And for why so we can send the money over seas to help out the very terrorist who would love to see us all dead. How many lives have we killed both terrorist and innocent, think of the lives we have taken here in America all in the name of false flags to take the eyes off of the screw ups we have made else where just to take our minds off of the media if and when they decide to report the truth. Our whole government body as a whole had been corrupted and needs to be removed and started over. #1 only people who believe in one God, #2 who believe in the Constitution. #3 That all men are created equal. #4 That all citizens are American not African American are White American. #5 no separate rights for one over another. #6 no fill time congress, #7 no perks for congress they have the same as what we have and after 4 years unless re elected they go back to work as a civilian with the aame insurance. #8 no changing the Constitution are the bill of rights, #9 Money made here in the US stays here in the U.S. #10 no entitlements unless you are physical dis-abled, and you must be a citizen of the U.S. I think if we had those kinda people in office we could come back to a proud and strong Nation.

    My father served in the army and flew a flag outside his home for many years. This year he took the old one down and (i thought to put up a new one and take the other to the post office) he just threw it in the trash can and said this is where our country is going. When a true MAN like my father has given up on a country he once loved, what does that tell everyone else. I am ready to see China, Soviet Union, Japan, and many other countries come over to our land and kick our “asses” until we are a fourth world country and then take over while they laugh atus. WELL I AM GOING TO SAY THAT I AM ASHAMED OF WHAT THIS COUNTRY HAS BECOME AND I WILL NOT PARTICIPATE IN THIS COUNTRY’S CRAP ANYMORE AND I WILL NOT FIGHT TO PRESERVE THIS MESS THAT IT IS IN NOW AND IF DICTATOR ovomit WANTS MY STUFF AND MY GUNS COME GET THEM! I WILL ASK ALL THE OTHER COUNTRIES FOR FOOD AND A GUN FOR LOYALTY! UNTIL THIS COUNTRY CHANGES FOR THE BETTER I AM ASHAMED TO BE STUCK HERE BECAUSE I CAN’T MAKE ENOUGH TO GET OUT. EVEN IF I COULD, THE GOVERNMENT WANTS TO KNOW YOUR LIFE STORY BEFORE THEY GIVE YOU A PASSPORT IF YOU TRY TO GET ONE FOR THE FIRST TIME OR THEY DID ME. “LOVE IT OR LEAVE IT” IS WHAT I HAVE BEEN TOLD BEFORE AND I HAVE TRIED TO LEAVE BUT THEY WONT LET YOU IF YOU DONT HAVE ENOUGH MONEY.

      Ideming, my brother, your “people”, like all people have good and bad people. Some of your people were brutal warrior tribes toward passive/peaceful tribes.

      The U.S. Government has been abusive towards many people, yes under democrat president jackson Native People were force marched into concentration camps, after they gave up their guns which they needed to hunt and feed themselves and protect themselves. Expecting food, safety and a just resolution they submitted and now like the black people, the brown people depend on the government for welfare, rather than self sufficiency.

      The right to worship and live according to our own conscience is essential, so I choose to live as a Christian and a Constitutional Conservative.

      The past is the past. Who will you take back what is your from? The One World Government, Federal Reserve, Corporate, Elitist have destroyed America.

      They intend to destroy millions of citizens, regardless of what tribe we come from, they have assigned the people to slavery. We will all be equal one day soon, equally poor, equally, starving, equally, repressed, equally marched off to concentration camps or shot and dropped in a hole….. Until we get over our divisive complaints about how bad “our people” had it and what we want to us right, we will be marched off together, equal and slaves.

      My brother, I pray that you and I and every other American will refrain from pointing our finger at each other and recognize the real enemy of freedom which is this or any government that attempts to regulate our lives through statutes, executive orders and laws that repress us. Common Law was the way of the land and this is the fairest way to resolve conflict and establish consequences for assault against our life, liberty or property.

      We may be shocked to awake one morning or in the dead of night the military and law enforcement kicking in the doors of those who have spoken out and those who have stood up and opposed the tyranny of this particular government, which is a puppet for George Soros and the other globalists who want to significantly reduce the populations of the world, including America and live the Elite life. They will only allow a select few to remain and serve them as they live their evil lives…Of course, only if they continue to divide us right and left, liberal and conservative, gay an straight, black band white, red and yellow.

      I remember a song I learned as a child…Red and Yellow, Black and White we are all precious in His sight. Jesus love the little children of the world.

      Each human being will be called to stand and defend our faith, families and freedom. We may have more time to prepare or we may be shocked in the middle of the night.

      BE NOT AFRAID!!! The battle belongs to the Lord and God will guide our actions should we be required to stand and fight. If or shall I say when we are assaulted in ways that we no longer can ignore, that moment will require you and I do decide which side we will support – good or evil.

      I will not comply with evil tyranny. I will not hurt my neighbor. I will not hate Red, Yellow, Black or White people. I will not rat out people. I will not do to my enemies what they have and will do to me. I love all of God’s children.

      I will stand and I will not sit down. I will speak in opposition to evil tyranny and when necessary I will join my brothers and sisters and we will prevail and we will survive. We are Holy and God wins over evil. We must choose today whom we will serve. As for me and my house we will serve the Lord.

      We will defend liberty and we will restore liberty. Tyranny will be defeated. We will hold all of those who are found guilty of tyranny and treason accountable. We will not be unjust and we will be just and consequences will be swift. So my brother and sisters, choose whom you will serve evil or good. Tyranny or God and the Divinely Inspired Constitution.

      God bless you. Long live the Republic. Peace, Peter ~
