‘Pro-life paradigm’ motivates domestic terrorism: West Point report
BY BEN JOHNSON
WEST POINT, NY, February 4, 2013, (LifeSiteNews.com) – A study published by West Point’s anti-terrorism center claims the “pro-life paradigm” is a motivating factor in domestic terrorism.
Dr. Arie Perliger, director of terrorism studies at West Point’s Combating Terrorism Center (CTC), makes the allegation in his report, “Challengers from the Sidelines: Understanding America’s Violent Far-Right.” The document – which references abortion 76 times in 146 pages – was issued in November but only reported last month. [Issued in November? Before the election?]
In an analysis of “far-right terrorism,” Perliger likens the pro-life movement to the Ku Klux Klan, skinheads, and Christian Identity (a racist Christian heresy). [It's the flip-side of the gun-control hysteria, isn't it?]
“The Christian fundamentalist violent far right emerged from two ideological platforms,” he wrote. “The more influential and popular one is that of the Christian Identity school of thought” – a tiny sect that teaches that Jesus Christ came to save only white people and that Jews are the literal biological children of Satan. [Emphasis on "tiny".]
“The second is the anti-abortion/pro-life paradigm,” Perliger wrote. [And this is much more problematic. Remember, the hijacking of pro-life language by those who are having a spittle-flecked nutty about scary-looking guns, are being directed by people who could care less about guns. They don't like the people who uphold the 1st and 2nd Amendments. They are the real targets: the people. All these talk about making the world safer is really about shutting up the people they don't like. "And those people think babies have a right to be born? those mouth-breathing, knuckle-draggers, those Tea-Party-types!"]
Perliger writes that the “ideological principles of pro-life violence” include the beliefs that “the abortion industry” engages in “the systematic killing of innocent and pure human beings”; [sounds like Planned Parenthood, originally founded systematically to kill black people...] that “since every human being is created in the image of God, it is by definition a sin to end their lives”; and that “any violent acts to end their lives [of 'fetuses'] are immoral and should be prevented.” [In the gun debate right now, there is more and more talk of expanding "mental health" checks and sharing records. The next step will be to start labeling political and ideological as having "mental health" problems. If you think that from the moment of conception a human being is present, made in the image of God with the inalienable right to be born, then you must be crazy. The feds will have to come and confiscate your guns, take your children from your homes, and keep you under watch.]
Perliger also raps liberty-minded small government activists, whom he calls “anti-federalists.” [You mean... Tea Party types?] According to the report, such purported would-be terrorists believe the government has “a natural tendency to intrude on individuals’ civil and constitutional rights,” and they “support civil activism, individual freedoms, and self-government.”
According to Perliger, small government advocates’ views are not merely violent but “designed to exclude minorities and foreigners.” [Those xenophobes! They must be sick in the head.]
The section on the pro-life movement links Dr. C. Everett Koop and Francis Schaeffer‘s statement that Roe v. Wade “symbolize[d] the triumph of evil over good” to a 1979 attack on an abortion facility and likens it to “the ideological rhetoric of the Identity movement.”
Perliger accuses pro-lifers of “using chemical and biological weapons” by “contaminating the medical equipment of abortion clinics with chemical materials.”
If you don’t think this country could turn in a bad direction really fast, then you are the one who is crazy.
