West Point and shoot

Good grief:

A West Point think tank has issued a paper warning America about “far right” groups such as the “anti-federalist” movement, which supports “civil activism, individual freedoms and self-government.”

The report issued this week by the Combating Terrorism Center at the U.S. Military Academy at West Point, N.Y., is titled “Challengers from the Sidelines: Understanding America’s Violent Far-Right.”

The center — part of the institution where men and women are molded into Army officers — posted the report Tuesday. It lumps limited government activists with three movements it identifies as “a racist/white supremacy movement, an anti-federalist movement and a fundamentalist movement.”

So "civil activism, individual freedoms and self-government" are now far-right extremistnutjob views, not cherished values of the American political system. The paper also draws a link between the mainstream conservative movement and the violent “far right,” and describes "liberals as 'future oriented' and conservatives as living in the past." Oh, OK then, no bias there.
