A military bulletin called patriot groups and the militia “domestic extremists” who may launch terrorist attacks, a claim which follows a trend by the government to demonize libertarians and constitutionalists.
The bulletin, an e-mail from a U.S. Coast Guard command security officer which was leaked to Infowars, lumped militia members and patriots with “white supremacists” and claimed they may launch terror attacks on April 19th because it is a “significant date to domestic extremists.”
“Members of the patriot and militia movements, sovereign citizens and white supremacists recall April 19th as the date that the battles of Lexington and Concord started the American Revolution,” the bulletin read. “Citing (incorrectly) Title 10 USC references to the ‘unorganized militias’ and the constitutional right to bear arms, these groups believe that they are legally obligated to oppose the government should it become tyrannical.”
The person who shared the bulletin with Infowars described it as unprecedented.
The bulletin only adds to the growing concern over the military training to take on American citizens while the government continues to demonize libertarians and constitutionalists as “racists” and “extremists.”
Over the past weekend, for example, the National Guard performed “civil unrest” drills in Richmond, Calif., which featured role players screaming right-wing rhetoric.
