BizPac Review found the Pentagon publishing more anti-conservative hatemongering while turning their backs on the really serious matters:
A Department of Defense training guide describes American conservative groups – not Islamic terrorism – as the true face of extremism in the military ranks, according to documents obtained by Judicial Watch.

Judicial Watch, a conservative watchdog group, obtained the materials in response to a Freedom of Information Act request seeking “all records … related to the preparation and presentation of training materials on hate groups or hate crimes distributed or used by the Air Force,” according to examiner.com.

And who are the hate groups the nation’s military should be wary of having in uniform?

Believe it or not, they sound a lot like the tea party.

“Nowadays, instead of dressing in sheets or publicly espousing hate messages, many extremists will talk of individual liberties, states’ rights, and how to make the world a better place,” states the training guide, compiled by the Defense Equal Opportunity Management Institute, a diversity training center funded by the Defense Department.

“In U.S. history, there are many examples of extremist ideologies and movements. The colonists who sought to free themselves from British rule and the Confederate states who sought to secede from the Northern states are just two examples.”

True enough. The American revolutionaries were pretty extreme in their day. But what of a modern extremism that actually poses a threat to the America they founded?

What about Muslim soldiers who roll grenades into officers’ tents (Camp Pennsylvania, Kuwait, March 23, 2003); Muslim civilians who kill soldiers outside Army recruitment centers (Little Rock, Ark., June 1, 2009); or Muslim majors who shoot up Army bases and kill soldiers preparing for deployment (Fort Hood, Texas, Nov. 5, 2009)?

The training guide doesn’t mention Islamic terrorism, beyond the “historical event” of 9/11 and the civil war in Sudan, according to Judicial Watch.
This is all they can do, apparently. Such uninspiring, disrespectful people we have to put up with at the Pentagon.
