Pentagon’s Special Ops Office Holds Book Talk On ‘Far-Right’ Domestic Terrorism

Daily Caller.

A Department of Defense (DOD) office invited two experts to discuss their new book on far-right terrorism in the U.S. as part of a new series featuring guest speakers, the Daily Caller News Foundation has learned.

The invitation appeared to go out via email to “all” staff of SO/LIC, the acronym for the Pentagon’s office overseeing special operations and irregular warfare, according to screenshots obtained exclusively by the DCNF. Bruce Hoffman, a professor at Georgetown University and senior fellow at the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR), and Jacob Ware, a research fellow at CFR, were scheduled Tuesday to present their book, which traces right-wing domestic terrorism through U.S history, including the Ku Klux Klan and groups involved in the Jan. 6 Capitol riots seeking to reverse the 2020 election.

“Reminder to please join us at 1200 tomorrow morning via Teams (link below) for this virtual brown bag book talk event — renowned terrorism scholars Dr. Bruce Hoffman and Jacob Ware. Their new book, God, Guns, and Sedition: Far-Right Terrorism in America was released earlier this month,” the invitation, dated Jan. 29 at 9:51 a.m., reads.

Bruce Hoffman is a communist shill and war monger.  He’s associated with RAND and the CFR. You don’t need to know anything else. I don’t know anything about Jacob Ware.  It doesn’t matter. He is associated with CFR.

Now. While the January 6 events were a gigantic buffalo jump, and I knew it would be, and while I blame Trump for not foreseeing election corruption and for disbanding his commission on election integrity and tried to get others to do his work for him as he always does, if January 6th was an insurrection or terrorism, with folks wandering around aimlessly and being guided by Capital Police, it was certainly a failure and a pathetic excuse for insurrection.

Anyway, I guess they forgot all about the BLM and Antifa riots and burnings and home invasions and mob behavior and occupation of Seattle and Portland and on and on we could go.

How convenient.

    Being a member of the SOF community, there is a huge unconscious smirking among the audience members at lower ranks of this nonsense.

    Show me the data for “right wing” violence; until that happens, this is projection and gaslighting.

    Notice the core dynamic of being “right wing” right now being advocacy of reduced government, free markets, deregulation, private weapons ownership, opposition to infanticide, and immigration controls among others. The watershed here is the desire to characterize desires for freedom and liberty to be associated with dark forces.

    Look up Drapetomania, that is the essence of the accusation.

    Apropos the content of the article and the comment below…

    Re: “Notice the core dynamic of being “right wing” right now being advocacy of reduced government, free markets, deregulation, private weapons ownership, opposition to infanticide, and immigration controls among others. The watershed here is the desire to characterize desires for freedom and liberty to be associated with dark forces.”

    This trend isn’t new, unfortunately, and the ‘woke’ (cultural Marxist) rot runs deep within the professional officer corps of the U.S. military, in particular the field grades and flag/general officer ranks.

    The military publication “Small Wars Journal” – which is among those read and frequently referenced by many members of the U.S. armed forces, ten years or so ago (~ 2012) published an article entitled “Full Spectrum Operations in the Homeland: A Vision of the Future,” by Jennifer Weber, Ph.D. and Kevin Benson, Ph.D.

    What was alarming about the article is that its subject was how the army might handle an insurgency on U.S. soil. Since every scenario needs a “bad guy” or “enemy” to war-game against, the authors selected as their villains “extremist militia forces associated with the ‘tea party’ movement,” who were protesting immigration and engaged in what the authors termed “race-baiting.”

    Did the reader catch all of that? Apparently, within national security circles these days, to be opposed to or unhappy in any way about immigration policy or the politically-correct agenda now marks one as an “extremist”!

    It is germane to note that Benson’s bio notes that he is a retired U.S. Army Colonel, and that Weber is an associate professor of history at the University of Kansas.

    Apparently, our constitutionally-protected right to political disagreement and dissent is now under attack, if not on outright life-support, at least within the halls of the Pentagon and Dept. of State and other such places.

    The second observation is the degree to which these “scholars” and “authorities” of various kinds are hacks and mediocrities – not withstanding their credentials whatever they may be. They are assuming that just because one opposes our immigration policy or current arrangements about affirmative action and the like, that therefore those who share such views wish to overthrow the U.S. government.

    Such shoddy thinking isn’t worthy of an 8th grade social studies class, let alone two holders of doctorates in history. These two so-called “scholars” ought to turn in their diplomas and hang their heads in shame! And if the good colonel is representative of the professional officer class in this country, then lord help us if we ever face a competent peer or near-peer enemy.

    The many-headed snake wants us dead. Full Spectrum war on humanity is occurring.
    The human natural state is freedom. The USSA government is hell bent on crushing freedom.

    In short, government by its nature is a gang or murderers, thieves, and thugs.

    Everything else is eye wash and window dressing.

    All they have to do is go to the source of the problem, the FBI and ATF buildings. That’s were all the so-called “right wing terrorism” originates, through their provocateurs.

    gee, I wish there WERE organised ‘far right’ groups – maybe we could straighten some stuff out…
