Making America Safe Again

Soldiers were told the list came from the Department of Homeland Security and was an updated list of what federal and local law enforcement need to be “on the lookout for,” according to the source.

Henry “told us that if anyone gets caught wearing, buying, selling, affiliated with in any way, any of those things on those list, that the first thing he’s going to do is chapter us out of the Army. The second thing is, he’s going to handle the investigation by sending it over to the DHS,” the source said. “He didn’t quite outright say that we would be arrested, he used the word ‘detained.’”

Some of the imagery on the slides clearly refer to hate symbols, such as a swastika or other Nazi-related symbols. However, also included is “Pepe the Frog” — an internet meme frequently posted by members of the political right to troll the political left.

[ … ]

More worrying for some soldiers, however, is the list’s inclusion of imagery popular among members of the military long before the racial unrest of the summer of 2020, such as the “Three Percenters” symbol — the Roman numeral III with 13 stars around it.

In fact, until recently, graduates of the SWMG’s Trauma III course had the option to buy a shirt with a Three Percenter logo on the front, the source said.

“Now those shirts, all of them have to be thrown away, and cannot be worn again and they have to change the logo because it’s been associated with these extremist behavior,” the source said.

[ … ]

I was 18 when I got it. It was described to me as the percentage of colonists that rose up against the government of the British … . I was like, ‘Wow, that is such an American sentiment, a patriotic sentiment.’ Coming from a military family, I thought that really spoke to me. I always was proud to be an American. I’m very proud to be an American.

Rohrwasser also had the American flag, “Liberty or Death,” and “Don’t Tread on Me,” tattooed on him, but nevertheless apologized for the Three Percenters tattoo and had it removed.

The slides, which are marked “law enforcement sensitive,” describe the “Three Percenters” as a “North American militia movement/paramilitary-style group with members who adhere to a far-right/libertarian ideology with a primary focus on firearms ownership right and opposition to expansive U.S. federal government authority.

Well, firearms ownership is a right granted by God.  And most people with a brain and a conscience are opposed to totalitarianism.

Good Lord.  He apologized for a tatoo?  He had it removed?  That’s painful and expensive from what I understand.

So I guess we’re left to conclude that the DHS, to whom people with tattoos are to be turned over, think that the war of independence was immoral and would have been in support of continuing to be subjects of the king?

What else could we conclude?

Anyway, hopefully ‘Karen’ feels safer today.  That’s what most important.

    Bolsheviks insist that there is no God so that they can take away all of our God given rights with a clear conscience.
    These are fanatical Jonestown Kool-Aid drunk true believers high on the man made utopia building zeal that never ends well.
    The Branch Covidian Terminal Madness has sent them over the edge of the abyss and they intend to drag us all down with them.
    Plan accordingly. (h/t-WRSA)

    Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron’s cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.

    It’s interesting to see how many were apparently taken off guard and shocked by this development. They really had no idea this was coming.

    Well, they’ve been woken up now. Thanks Biden, for waking up and alienating the rest of the trigger pullers.

    By the way, that NFL kicker, Rohrwasser, better get ready to take his other tats off too (and grovel for forgiveness), because they’ll be coming after them too; including that American flag, well known hate symbol.

    Back when I first started developing a preparedness mindset, one of the first books I read was Going Home by A. American (obviously a pen name). In that series, which evolved over several books, DHS was the bad guy that rounded people up and enslaved them in FEMA camps while raids committed atrocities on the people.

    What I think we are seeing now is the full blown purge of the military and other ranks of all those who would oppose the communist agenda and we’re being left with a force that would be willing to operate like those DHS teams did in the book.

    I wonder if burn loot murder and antifa are on the list? The 60 day “stand down” followed by the coming purge of the military should leave no doubt in anyone’s mind who will come for our guns.

    I get tired of saying it but here ya go again. the Left has been working hard on 3 parallel lines to build an army. (four if you count digital) They need an army, they know that, we have guns. They have been working; militarized police, street armies, and the last of the institutions to be subjected to the long march is the DoD. The commies are very good at this. Don’t underestimate them. Don’t think that the incompetent female and tranny force publicly displayed will be the only mil force. The left will weed out those it doesn’t want, will build very competent, very well trained, very well equipped highly and motivated true believers, hard men, in special units to come for you. Count on it. They always do this.

    This has been in planning and being worked for decades. The right thinks in election cycles while the left thinks in generational programs.

    And don’t misunderstand the current right’s pop view of the 3 percent; it was more like 20 percent even 30 percent of population that gave full support to the rebellion, but 3 that wielded arms. Also, they were Christians, churchmen. Today you couldn’t find a glimmer of the morality necessary to invoke their memory among those who now claim that heritage. Pitiful character one and all.

    He should not have removed the tattoo. Never appease. They’ll be back for more, and more, and more.

    The clock is ticking.

    No waiver should have been granted. … I expect Gen Austin’s rise to four-star was facilitated by Obama’s purge of senior ranks during his time in office. …

    So it perhaps follows that one could be demonstrably “pro LGBT” (of course, there are support groups and special benefits for Transexuals) and based on the Breitbart article not mentioning the imagery or symbols of BLM, BLT or African-American red-black-green patches, or rainbows, or hammers and sickles, Wickans, islamic, Sikh, other symbols and garb are all “Okay” (as they “do not” represent any form of favoritism, discrimination, elitism, hatred, etc.).

    Idealogue: 1) an often blindly partisan advocate or adherent of a particular ideology (Merriam Webster) …

    Racism: 1) a belief that race is a fundamental determinant of human traits and capacities and that racial differences produce an inherent superiority of a particular race (Merriam Webster) …

    Should the opportunity ever arise in the future, I suggest the “resurrected, USA” have a full conscription military and 90% of all non military government positions also be staffed through mandatory conscript service – 3 to 5 year tours and out, no post service benefits.

    We all sleep safe in our beds because rough men stand ready in the night to attend gender studies classes and visit violence on those who would disagree with the Party.

    I wonder while this purge goes on since Pepe the frog a no-no will they also go after I believe Freddy the frog,the one smoking a cigar and holding a pack of dynamite favored by SEALs,along with the newer skeleton frog to show remembrance for a fallen team member.

    This world just gets crazier by the day!

    Fred above got it right. Totalitarian regimes always manage to find enforcers. If these leftists manage to put together an effective military force we are finished. They are already dominating the higher command and now they are going for the rank-and-file. They will purge those not fully committed to their bloody cause and find men who will not hesitate to kill for them.

    When my son went to boot camp for the Marine Corps he had to wait 3-4 months to go. Almost half of the people in his group were foreign nationals who were promised citizenship for their service. I have read that the gangs have infiltrated the military, and then there is the issue of the unsolved Fort Bragg murders. I recently learned of the death of a former student who committed suicide. He had served in Afghanistan and according to his wife suffered from ptsd. According to the VA as many as 20 veterans commit suicide each day. I have read articles by former instructors that claim our military academies have been destroyed by political correctness and that the cadets do not even have to perform academically to receive their commissions. Race, sexual orientation and political ideology are the important factors to receiving an appointment to and a commission from our military academies. It is probably much worse than I can imagine.
