The Founding Fathers Were 'Extremists' [OregonMuse]

Who comes up with this stuff?

A Department of Defense teaching guide meant to fight extremism advises students that rather than “dressing in sheets” modern-day radicals “will talk of individual liberties, states’ rights, and how to make the world a better place,” and describes 18th-century American patriots seeking freedom from the British as belonging to “extremist ideologies.”

You'll love this:

The guide also repeatedly tells readers to use the Southern Poverty Law Center as a resource in identifying hate groups. The SPLC has previously come under fire for its leftist bias and tendency to identify conservative organizations such as the American Family Association as hate groups.

Yeah, that's a real reliable source.

Here is the link to the Judicial Watch post containing the training materials obtained from DoD.

Update: link fixed. Sorry
