'Oath Keepers' answer to Arie Perliger West Point Manchurian Candidate!

OpEd: Jack
First and foremost a search for a complete Biography on one known as Arie Perliger...is for the most part sparse and interesting to note: strange for one known to be a professor and author,however his own biography is quite telling... take notice of where his degrees were earned and articles published! and the lack of citing any US military experience or service!

Oath Keepers has an interest in this sort of study, because such analytics are continuously being inserted into the mental states of our public servants, especially those who are to be used to suppress dissent within the population at large. You know, the gals and guys with the badges and the guns – and those with the uniforms of the U.S. military.
These types of analytics shore-up a mindset which becomes applied policy as they are assimilated into the rhetoric of “Homeland Security” at the bureaucratic level.  From the bureaucratic level this sort of profiling of American citizens is dispersed through a maze of more than seventy satellite offices under the command of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) outwardly, down the chain of command to State level “enforcement agencies”, through County Sheriff departments, and to City or local police departments/offices.
This sort of study is the fertile psychological ground in which the seeds of governmental tyranny are sprouted and nurtured, fertilized and watered and incubated by the heated force of applied government. It is conceived in the misguided and misperceiving minds of statists (people who would grant all authority for the management of individual lifestyles of citizens to government offices and agencies). It gets written up into profiling theses, such as the below, using numbers and statistics reflecting the group behavior – while inadvertently overlooking any semblance of personal responsibility on the part of the individual.

It’s transition is marked by three stages. It is 1) profiling, which becomes 2) predisposed perception, which in turn becomes 3) policy. It is morally irresponsible and repugnant, but it is the only “system” available to any modern government which seeks to contain, limit, control the beliefs, perceptions, habits, and behavior of its citizenry.  It is based on “studies” and “polls” drawn from the group, and as such it is biased against the “individual citizen”.
In today’s SWAT-infested militarized combat-style “law enforcement” agencies it often leads to a predisposed violation of Constitutional rights of citizens, as we saw in the protests at the G-20 in Pittsburgh.

But we here at Oath Keepers already know these basics, of course. Let us therefore simply note that in the study reproduced below, there are some serious Constitutional threats embodied In the sections dealing with militias.  In this report, militias are grouped right into the mix with KKK, skinhead radicals, white supremacists, and radicalized fringe groups from the greater Christian society.
Observe the psychological subtlety.  Then ask oneself – how can this be applied by rogue government bureaucracies to Constitutional-minded liberty fighters such as Oath Keepers?  Another question -
Will it be applied?

  1. The danger we face as a nation is twofold: modern consciousness which is a non-inquiring consciousness, and what Aurel Kolnai called: 'the ideology of the 'Common Man'. See Kolnai's essay: 'The Meaning of the "Common Man" in his book 'Privilege and Liberty and Other Essays in Political Philosophy'.

    Mr. Perliger does not recognize perennial conflicts in the heart of egalitarian democracy. Rather, he identifies extreme forms of dissent with legitimate forms of dissent. Extremism gets identified with the right in general, a continuity exists for him, from the base of the iceberg to the tip. The right as a whole becomes illegitimate, the enemies against a populism of 'we the people/the government'. The identification of the people and the government with the good and the true, and the demonization of legitimate criticism of the leveling corrosive effects of egalitarianism, which is the philosophical grounds for the rejection of the left by the right, (even though the right is not self-conscious enough about the philosophical grounds of their objection) is the bridge to totalitarian forms of democracy. That Mr. Perliger does not recognize elements within government that while operating with the best of intentions in practice are destructive of individual liberty and freedoms simply illustrates that his own thinking belongs 'below the surface', to the dominant non-inquiring modern consciousness.

  2. You are on the mark with this statement: "...based on “studies” and “polls” drawn from the group, and as such it is biased against the “individual citizen”. The good "Dr." begins by acknowledging all the facts are not yet in, then proceeds to build his case on his own preconceived notions. A better example of circular reasoning would be difficult to find. Obviously, Mr. Perliger conducts his "research" in the typical leftist manner. i.e., Begin with a conclusion, then select evidence that bolsters that conclusion.

  4. So Perliger, an apparent paid foreign agent employed by a non-human person, is apparently agitating to, in part, facilitate a conspiracy against the Constitution of the United States and the enumerated rights belonging to lawful American citizens?

    Does this not meet the definition of a Sedition against the people of the United States and its Constitution? Where does this leave the administration at West Point who apparently pay and operate him as an employee/agent?

    Like Piers Morgan, Perliger appears to be a paid foreign agent employed by a non-human, non-voting person to agitate against the enumerated Constitutional rights, apparently in support of foreign government demands that the US Government disarm its citizens and strip them of their enumerated rights. How is this not an organized Sedition?

    And what of David Gregory, a domestic agent employed by a non-human, non-voting person to apparently agitate or advocate against our enumerated Constitutional rights, in apparent direct/indirect support of foreign government dictates, treaties and agendas demanding the American population be materially disarmed; apparently to reduced the individual American citizen to the feudal norm of syndicate, supremacist foreign governments now demanding hegemony over the individual persons to be ruled as lessers and subjects of the postmodern supremacist ruling class.

  6. As an Israeli citizen and a Jew I can tell you that this piece of shit is a Kapo. He slanders the Israeli right as well, and does not speak for the country or the majority of it's citizens, who hate Obama.

  8. As we watch Egypt disembowel itself, I am reminded of a faculty meeting in a so-called 'prestigious' University, where one member acknowledge his Communist affiliation, insofar as it was accepted by the administration. These 'studies' were non-existent (fabricated and/or predetermined) as far back as 1972, and still are today. I hope that our finest will decipher them, question origin, and (perhaps) make their own doctorate accreditation as a result.
