“Christians Are White Supremacist Extremists: But Don’t Mention the Palestinians” Giraldi

 “A Department of Defense training manual that has been prepared in response to the discovery of “white supremacy” identifies Catholics and evangelical Christians inter alia as “religious extremists,” presumably because they hold traditional religious views that are unacceptable to the implementers of the currently fashionable woke culture. It warns that “Christian extremism is often conflated with white supremacy for a joint ideology focused on racial and religious purity which they believe to be God’s intention” and places them in a broader group together with members of the Ku Klux Klan, al-Qaeda, and Hamas. The manual claims that such organizations “…use or advocate violence to accomplish their objectives and are therefore [are] rightly classified as extremists.”

To be sure, the US military is becoming increasingly a social engineering tool and irrelevant as it has not actually defended the country since the War of 1812. The training manual and whatever other “teaching tools” it spawns are part of Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin’s “stand-down” to identify and discharge extremists in the US armed forces which was issued after the January 6th incident at the US Capitol in Washington. Some of those involved were reported to be military veterans. Austin did not provide any evidence that “extremism” was pervasive among active-duty soldiers, nor did he define what views in particular are unacceptable. Critics counter that the problem is a minor one in the military, with only nine army soldiers discharged for reasons that might be linked to political extremism in 2020.

If one is going to identify conservative Christians as threats, how about kicking people out of government and denying security clearances for being too close to Israel, General Austin? Israel conducts the most aggressive spying operations directed against the US by any “friendly” country, but it rarely pays any price for its behavior. In 2009 FBI counter intelligence officer John Cole reported how many cases of Israeli espionage were dropped under orders from the Justice Department. He provides a “conservative estimate” of 125 viable investigations into Israeli espionage involving both American citizens and Israelis that were stopped due to political pressure.”

Comment: Phil Geraldi’s essay above is provided as informative with regard to the politicization of American life in all its aspects. I wonder what Joe Biden, supposedly a devout Catholic, thinks of all this. pl

    Somewhat along these lines, here is an *excellent* essay i came across that compares rise of wokeism to the rise of Christianity in the Roman Empire.

    • longarch says:

      Thank you for that essay. I learned some things and was reminded of other things I should have been more mindful of.

    • Warlord says:

      I recall an interview with Camille Pagilia about campus politics. She said that one of the signs of the downfall of empires is an obsession with sexual identity.

      I think we’re there right now.

      The social media activism of today, exemplified by Twitter, is basically just Gen Z consumerism-obsessed Leftists run amok. Coddled by corporate America to maintain optics.

      Everything is about how they identify. Who they are attracted to. And so on.

      These folks have a brittle spirit and can only rally around a comic book character or other dramatic examples (ie a person being killed on camera).

      If they picked up a history book they may realize that people have died quite often throughout human history.

      None of them seem to care about any ideas beyond what is slipped into their brains by corporate America.

      It’s all a scam.

    Changed my mind Colonel, you’re not really gullible.

    • Pat Lang says:

      Bakhshish

      Screw you.

      • Bakshish says:

        I understand. By the way, what do they do with American spies cought in Israel? Has any been jailed over there? I had the pleasure of having dinner with one, many years ago. He was just asked politely to leave. He is a journalist and an American Jew. Back in the US, he is now working for a Media company in a high visibility job. Colonel, I won’t bother you anymore. I meant no harm.

        • Pat Lang says:

          Bakhshish

          Who the hell are you, you arrogant prick, to have talked to me as you did? Do you know anything about me?

  3. The Twisted Genius says:

    I’d sure like to see that training manual or at least that screenshot of the slide from that manual referred to by Michael Berry, the Marine Reservist and First Liberty Institute (FLI) lawyer who testified before the HASC hearing. I haven’t found that hearing transcript yet. Once any of that is made public, I can see whether the Army screwed up hiring another whack job contractor or the FLI and Phil Giraldi are needlessly hyperventilating on this point.

    On the point of failing to prosecute Israeli espionage or despising that son of a bitch Pollard, I fully agree with Phil. Pollard is doing Jews and especially Jewish-Americans no favors with his miserable drivel. But one can dislike Israeli policy and actions without dismissing the Holocaust.

  4. Deap says:

    Since Israel stuck a knife in Trump’s back almost immediately post-election by congratulating “President Elect” Biden, I suspect Israel secured their good graces with the Biden administration.

  5. scott s. says:

    When reviewing the laws which authorized the first regiments of the “regular” army (and same is true for the authorization of volunteer regiments in war) I was struck by the importance Congress placed on the provision of Chaplains. And they weren’t referring to Wiccan chaplains.

  6. Seward says:

    Might surprise the members of my parish church, where close to half are “persons of color” — Hispanics, African ex-pats, Caribbeans, Philippinos. Most are fairly devout, putting white people to shame.
    — This is obviously an attack on Christianity as such, especially the still-believing parts of it. My guess is this is only an opening salvo, and will likely get much worse.

    • Pat Lang says:

      Seward
      What denomination?

      • Seward says:

        Catholic. St. John the Baptist Parish in the Colesville areas of Silver Spring, MD. (In spite of the name, a Catholic church. Very plain looking: Our founding pastor was from Southern MD, where repressed Catholics had to conceal themselves in house churches from 1690 to 1775 [because a man’s home was his castle under English law; so couldn’t be entered by the authorities]. Then after the Revolution they tried to blend in with their neighbors. Every 10 years or some Protestant visitor thinks it’s a Baptist church.)

  7. Fourth and Long says:

    The comment section of the piece at the epoch times can be accessed by clicking on a link on the rhs under the byline. Some interesting observations.

    Did they mean to say that Biden, the commender in Chief is a domestic terrorist?

    Catholics are domestic terrorists? If they tricked someone into defining that as a criterion, I say: hmm, too clever by ….. (Fill in your fraction).

    Did they rather mean to say White Christians are domestic terrorists rather than Catholics and Evangelicals?

    Did they rather mean to say a Catholic president who is a democratic is a domestic terrorist?

    Excuse humor section, last two questions .

    Howsomever, whoever drew up those criteria, assuming this has been accurately quoted, is not too bright. Or a clever editor inserted spanners? If in fact it is accurate it’s a marvelous illustration of the hurried, ill thought out shoddiness of the project under consideration. Maybe someone who knew about the brilliant success of Sen Joe McCarthy’s slur to the effect that the US Army was infiltrated by communists was the spanner-inserting clever editor?

    Probably just bungling.

  8. sbin says:

    Enjoy Mr Giraldi’s work.
    Such examinations of American and Israel political interactions are noticeably lacking in MSM propaganda.

  9. Jose says:

    Does anybody believe the Bidenistas are Catholic or religious?

    This is going to hurt the military, if PL gives me a bad review for being a crappy butter bar, I’ll snitch that PL is anti-Cuban, anti-Hispanic, etc.

    So I will get a free ride…

    They are using “Religious Extremist” like “Latino,” to categorize a broad group of people are being the same.

    Are Cubans in Miami the same as Tejanos in the Rio Grande valley?

    Or Tejanos with Puerto Ricans?

    Or Puerto Ricans with New York Ricans?

    Or Red Francis with the Catholics flock he is leading?

    This nonsense needs to stop, we are all Army Green (or whatever category Austin is using today).

  10. john kliss says:

    I think that if Ole Joe had a fertile thought it would die of loneliness…

  11. Warlord says:

    Dear Colonel,

    I whole-heartedly agree.

    Every group in this country seems to organize and promote their interests. The fact that White folks in American public life are willingly promoting the interests of the Israel lobby or Black Lives Matter adjacent viewpoints is beyond bizarre.

    All the while, pro-Israel trolls online AND offline are attacking and subverting democratic principles in the US and UK.

    They operate websites to profile and intimidate people who advocate for the Palestinians. They manipulate social media (ie coordinated editing of Wikipedia, lobbying Facebook to censor Palestinian activism, etc. etc.).

    They are the original ‘cancel culture’ proponents.

    Yet, when we look at young people today – what do they care about? Pop culture, consumerism, sexual identity, and gossip.

    I feel like we’re all doomed. This decisiveness is only getting worse and the only people who stand to benefit in the long-term are ‘protected’ ethno-nationalists like the Israelis.
