Up to and including trying to designate the Tea Party as a bunch of right wing terrorists.
It now appears that that kind of smear is being escalated up a notch by an article from the Small Wars Journal. From the Washington Times.
EDITORIAL: The Civil War of 2016
Imagine Tea Party extremists seizing control of a South Carolina town and the Army being sent in to crush the rebellion. This farcical vision is now part of the discussion in professional military circles.This isn't from some den of paranoid basement dwellers hiding out in their moms basement putting out a online news letter, and that's what makes it such an eye opener.
At issue is an article in the respected Small Wars Journal titled “Full Spectrum Operations in the Homeland: A ‘Vision’ of the Future.” It was written by retired Army Col. Kevin Benson of the Army's University of Foreign Military and Cultural Studies at Fort Leavenworth, Kan., and Jennifer Weber, a Civil War expert at the University of Kansas. It posits an “extremist militia motivated by the goals of the ‘tea party’ movement” seizing control of Darlington, S.C., in 2016, “occupying City Hall, disbanding the city council and placing the mayor under house arrest.” The rebels set up checkpoints on Interstate 95 and Interstate 20 looking for illegal aliens. It’s a cartoonish and needlessly provocative scenario.
With the recently reported news that the Obama administration ordered law enforcement to "stand down" and not arrest occupy protesters and then this, it makes you wonder what Obama has in mind for those who oppose him.
This "administration" needs to be voted out in November.
