is writing about the DHS document that has surfaced earlier this week, so I won't link to it, because I am sure my readers, as astute as they are, have already read this nefarious document, with all of its generalities, unfounded accusations, and the like.
As a veteran, I take particular umbrage with their 'warning' about disgruntled veterans coming home from war being attracted to 'rightwing extremist' groups. And in keeping with true form, they cite the left's favorite veteran villain, Timothy McVeigh as the example.
What these bureaucratic pinheads just cannot comprehend is that there are nutjobs in every single organization, whether it is the military, veterans groups, the Elks, the Eagles, the Kiwanis, political parties, etc. By citing Timothy McVeigh, they are denigrating each and every veteran who served honorably, whether in peace time or war time.
It is a tired old play, from a worn out playbook, and you can thank the left for it. They just love portraying veterans as kooks or nutjobs, as victims of an unfair system, as children who were lied to by the military recruiters. It began with a small portion of the Viet Nam veterans, who were described by both Hollywood and politicians as crazy killers. It was despicable then, and it is despicable now.
I guess since I am conservative, fervently believe in the Constitution of the United States, and despise the current course of this government, I fall into their classification of a 'disgruntled veteran.' Well, so be it.
At least I will be in the right company.
