(NaturalSociety) Those who mean to lord over us, such as the Department of Defense, have now called people who grow their own food ‘radical’ and extremists. Sound familiar? It’s just like the US calling other nations terrorists when our government has terrorized more of the ‘free’ world than we could even imagine. It has basically called its own citizens terrorists already with NSA spying.
How in the world has it come to this? Americans are becoming ‘serfs’ to their own government much the same way that the British monarchy forced self-sufficient farmers to divide up their land into mono-cropping plots so that they could tax the heck out of everyone and make them reliant upon the same system of tenet farming which then enslaved the masses.
What’s worse, even the founding fathers are considered ‘extremists’ by the Pentagon, according to a new training manual that labels farmers as such. This bit of information was discovered by the legal watchdog, Judicial Watch, as part of a Freedom of Information Act request, and was included in over 133 documents provided by the Air Force. To teach our military to root out ‘extremism’ in a ‘student guide’, those who would decide to grow some organic cabbage, non-GMO corn, and tomatoes, for example, would be considered a threat to national defense. Even though the document says that this is ‘for training purposes only’ and ‘do not use on the job,’ why on earth would such a reference be made? It is simply preposterous.
The manual goes on to pigeonhole those who would have the gall to grow their own food:
An “extremist” is “a person who advocates the use of force or violence; advocates supremacist causes based on race, ethnicity, religion, gender, or national origin; or otherwise engages to illegally deprive individuals or groups of their civil rights.”
In addition, it says, “Nowadays, instead of dressing in sheets or publically espousing hate messages, many extremists will talk of individual liberties, states’ rights, and how to make the world a better place.”
I am a writer, but I have no words.
So essentially – as we ‘ve all suspected of late, if we believe in supporting our own rights, if we believe in freedom – sovereignty of food, and lifestyle, then we are enemies of the state and federal government. I’m not sure what country we live in anymore, but it certainly isn’t one in which we allow ‘freedom to ring.’
Many of our founding fathers were farmers. Many of them spoke of ways to make this country a better place. Upholding basic human rights does not equate to terrorism. Like a stack of pancakes, they’ve flipped the truth over on itself.
The document was obtained from the Air Force, but originated in the Department of Defense Office, which means it is likely used for ‘training’ in other military branches. I do sincerely hope that there are still men and women in midst, like Edward Snowden, who will stand for what is right, and not for rhetoric and blatant propaganda. Don’t let them turn us against each other. That is their plan.
Take for example, the striking similarity to the language of the IRS when it was targeting people in Tea Party investigations.
In my book, we all need to be extremists to overturn a sick, Imperial, bloated government who thinks we are all slaves ready to bow at their feet and kiss and their muddied shoes. No more business as usual.
