People Who Grow Their Own Food are Extremists

10 207

You heard me. The Administration has classified people who grown their own food as extremists. It shouldn’t surprise anyone – Barack Obama for the most part has been upfront about the people he holds in contempt, and has had no problem deriding conservative groups in public and using the power of the Federal Government to deny them civil rights in private. For all those who have heard the argument that these are the acts of local rogue offices or merely aberrations in a post-9/11 America, read on:

You can add “Fruits & Vegetables” to that clinging advisory

The government legal watchdog group, Judicial Watch through the Freedom of Information Act has acquired a Department of Defense training manual which states – among other things – that folks who grow their own food are “extremists” and should be looked upon as such when dealing with them. In case you’re wondering just what our Federal government means by “extremist;” the manual goes on to define it as “a person who advocates the use of force or violence; advocates supremacist causes based on race, ethnicity, religion, gender, or national origin; or otherwise engages to illegally deprive individuals or groups of their civil rights.” Wouldn’t that include Lois Lerner and the IRS? I digress…

So why are farmers and other people (here’s looking at you, preppers), who grow their own food – for whatever purpose – suddenly enemies of the State? A junior psychologist’s look into Barack Obama’s statements alone could reasonably conclude that he just doesn’t like us conservatives and he’s shaping the Federal government in that likeness. In case you’ve been under a rock for the past couple years, you now live in a country where if you’re suspected of being an extremist, your phone calls, emails, movements, friendships, associations even movements can be tracked, listened to, opened, analyzed and used against you without your consent or knowledge. If you’re deemed to be an extremist, you do not have Fourth Amendment rights and it’s just a short trip down Obama alley to denying you the rest of the Amendments.

Paranoid? Really? With everything we’ve seen – the head of the NSA blatantly lying to Congress, various departments of the Federal government oppressing people based on keywords, and unelected officials writing and enforcing regulations which destroy targeted groups, industries and people’s livelihoods?

Okay, I’m paranoid – you got me. But I’m only saying that because everyone thinks I’m paranoid and the voices in my head tell me you’ll keep reading if I throw a little drama in here. Think about this, though:

This manual I was talking about that Judicial Watch got hold of is the January 2013 Defense Equal Opportunity Management Institute “student guide” and is entitled “Extremism.” The guide is quick to state that it is “for training purposes only” and “do not use on the job.” What the hell does that mean? I’m an educated, paranoid guy and I can’t even figure that out. But I get a lot of wild ideas when the “for training purposes only” guide goes on to say; “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.”…

The Tea Party is goin’ down, baby!

Well, there you go. I’m not only paranoid, I’m an extremist to the Nth degree with that paragraph because it pretty much sums up my campaign speech if I was running for office. And if that weren’t enough – I grow my own food! Run for the hills, an extremist is on the loose – he’s got a fistful of rhubarb and he’s not afraid to use it if it means making the world a better place! … Gee, you always have to make a joke, don’t you Rodney Lee? Yes, yes I do.

So let me get this straight: If you believe in freedom, individual liberty, self-reliance and *gasp* making the world a better place – you’re an extremist? Yep.

But Rodney Lee, that doesn’t make sense! Yes it does – be quiet and let me lay it out for you as only a paranoid, lover of self-determination, and awesome jalapeno grower can: These new extremists are President Obama’s enemies – got it? They were the ones who rose up in 2010, took away his majority in the House and forcing him to work extra hard – having to go around Congress rather than the rubber-stamping he so enjoyed before that. Also, he had to pull out and wave around the nude Polaroid’s of John Boehner he obviously has and remind the Speaker that there are consequences for not supporting Amnesty for 30 million undocumented Democrats or even thinking about defunding *angelic horns* ObamaCare.

boehnerobamaI know what you’re thinking: You’re thinking; “hey, that Rodney Lee is maybe onto something and he’s not so paranoid like I thought he was in 2005 when he said Republicans would lose Congress because they were no longer a conservative Party…” If you’re not convinced, then how about these apples: Our little manual-training guide-not to be used on the job has a section on “Extremist Ideologies,” which says the colonists who sought to free themselves from British rule is just one of many examples of extremist ideology and movements. Translation: The Constitution, Bill of Rights and Declaration of Independence was written by extremists and the Revolutionary War to win freedom from tyranny was planned and carried out by extremists.

Hey, hey, hey – c’mon guys it’s not like the Federal government is officially hostile to people who support limited and Constitutional government. Please – this was for training purposes only.

My advice? Cling to your guns, religion and rhubarb.

    If you are not an extremist, then you should be ashamed of yourself.

    Berry and Meshell shouldnt say such things as this with their mouth full. Oh and didnt Meshell start her own White House Garden. Does this mean the SS will have to shoot her?

    Where in the Judicial watch article or in the training documents linked by Judicial watch is growing food even mentioned? Because for the life of me, I don’t see it.

    I find it somewhat amusing that in 1986 the Army called me a “paranoid” for my faith in Jesus Christ. Seems it’s been unpopular to be a Christian or a conservative for a VERY long time. Now that the NSA is monitoring everything and their every movement can be and probably is tracked, I wonder if they still think I’m “paranoid”. Note: I beat that by the grace of God and through the intervention of Jesus Christ into the affairs of men. God is Great (Yeah, I know, that’s what “Allah hu akbar” means.) Fact is, God is not “Allah” and Allah is not GOD. Want to know God? Talk to Jesus.

      Its not your imagination, you are paranoid. Wait a minute if you imagine you are paranoid and people are out to get you does that mean your not really paranoid? Guess your not because as a Christian the GFov’t really is out to get you.

    Another wiser Barry has said and I paraphrase, extremism in the defense of liberty is no vice and moderation in the pursuit of justice is no virtue.
