Obama Declares War On Extremists

Obama Declares War On Extremists

Prison-Camp-Public-Domain ExtremistsObama Declares War On ‘Extremists’ – Are You An ‘Extremist’ According To His Definition?

By Michael Snyder, on January 11th, 2015

Do you know what an extremist is?  In the wake of the horrible terror attacks on the offices of Charlie Hebdo (see article here Charlie Hebdo Attack – Analysis) in France, Barack Obama is speaking very boldly about the need to win the war against extremists, and he has announced plans to host a major global summit on “extremism” next month.  And on the surface that sounds great.  But precisely how are we supposed to determine whether someone is an extremist or not?  What criteria should we use?  As you will see below, your definition of an extremist may be far, far different from the definition that Barack Obama is using.  When you do a Google search, you will find that an extremist is defined as “a person who holds extreme or fanatical political or religious views, especially one who resorts to or advocates extreme action.”  According to Wikipedia, “extremism” is “an ideology (particularly in politics or religion), considered to be far outside the mainstream attitudes of a society or to violate common moral standards.  Extremism can take many forms, including political, religious and economic.”  Please notice that neither of those definitions uses the word violence.  In this day and age, you can be considered an extremist simply based on what you believe, and as you will see later in this article there are now tens of millions of Americans that are considered to be extremists and “potential terrorists” according to official U.S. government documents.

When you use the word extremist, you may have in your mind a picture of ISIS fighters or the terrorists from the Charlie Hebdo massacre.

But for elitists such as Barack Obama, the word extremist has a much broader meaning.  In recent years, it has become a code word for those that do not have an “enlightened” view of the world.  If your views on politics, religion or social issues are extremely different from the liberal, progressive views of “the mainstream” (as defined by the mainstream media and by “mainstream” politicians such as Barack Obama), then they consider you to be an extremist.

Early in the presidency of George W. Bush, we were told that Islamic terrorists were the enemy.  And so most of the country got behind the idea of the War on Terrorism.  But over the years that has morphed into a War on Extremism.  In fact, the Obama administration has gone so far as to remove almost all references to Islam from government terror training materials

Deputy U.S. Attorney General James Cole confirmed on Wednesday that the Obama administration was pulling back all training materials used for the law enforcement and national security communities, in order to eliminate all references to Islam that some Muslim groups have claimed are offensive.

“I recently directed all components of the Department of Justice to re-evaluate their training efforts in a range of areas, from community outreach to national security,” Cole told a panel at the George Washington University law school.

Now, much of the focus in law enforcement training materials is on “domestic extremists”.  We are being told that “domestic extremism” is just as great a threat to our national security as terror groups overseas are.

But exactly who are these “domestic extremists”?

Well, the truth is that you may be one of them.

I want to share with you a list that I have shared in a couple of previous articles.  It is a list of 72 types of Americans that are considered to be extremists or “potential terrorists” in official U.S. government documents.  This list will really give you a good idea of what Barack Obama means when he uses the word extremist.  Each of these 72 items is linked, so if you would like to go see the original source document for yourself, just click on the link.  As you can see, this list potentially includes most of the country…

70. Those that display the Gadsden Flag (“Don’t Tread On Me”)

71. Those that believe in “end times” prophecies

72. Evangelical Christians

Do you fit into any of those extremists categories?

Personally, I fit into a couple dozen of them.

That is why alarm bells should go off whenever Barack Obama speaks of the need to crack down on “extremism”.

If Barack Obama wants to denounce Islamic terror, he should do so.  But because of his extreme political correctness, he goes out of his way to avoid any connection between Islam and terror.  Instead, he speaks of the need to recognize “Islam’s role in advancing justice, progress, tolerance, and the dignity of all human beings” and he insists that “the future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam.”

Meanwhile, our liberties and freedoms are being eroded a little bit more with each passing day.  In the name of fighting “terrorism” or “extremism”, our government is constructing a Big Brother police state control grid all around us.  I like the way that Ron Paul described what is happening to us just the other day

If Americans were honest with themselves they would acknowledge that the Republic is no more. We now live in a police state. If we do not recognize and resist this development, freedom and prosperity for all Americans will continue to deteriorate. All liberties in America today are under siege.

It didn’t happen overnight. It took many years of neglect for our liberties to be given away so casually for a promise of security from the politicians. The tragic part is that the more security was promised — physical and economic — the less liberty was protected.

With cradle-to-grave welfare protecting all citizens from any mistakes and a perpetual global war on terrorism, which a majority of Americans were convinced was absolutely necessary for our survival, our security and prosperity has been sacrificed.

It was all based on lies and ignorance. Many came to believe that their best interests were served by giving up a little freedom now and then to gain a better life.

The trap was set. At the beginning of a cycle that systematically undermines liberty with delusions of easy prosperity, the change may actually seem to be beneficial to a few. But to me that’s like excusing embezzlement as a road to leisure and wealth — eventually payment and punishment always come due. One cannot escape the fact that a society’s wealth cannot be sustained or increased without work and productive effort. Yes, some criminal elements can benefit for a while, but reality always sets in.

Reality is now setting in for America and for that matter for most of the world. The piper will get his due even if “the children” have to suffer. The deception of promising “success” has lasted for quite a while. It was accomplished by ever-increasing taxes, deficits, borrowing, and printing press money. In the meantime the policing powers of the federal government were systematically and significantly expanded. No one cared much, as there seemed to be enough “gravy” for the rich, the poor, the politicians, and the bureaucrats.

The country that our forefathers founded is dying.

Now, individuals and organizations that attempt to restore the values that our founders once believed in so strongly are regarded as dangerous extremists that need to be watched carefully.

Sadly, most Americans don’t even realize what is happening to this nation.  As long as they are fed a constant diet of mindless entertainment, most Americans are perfectly content to let “the experts” do their thinking for them.

We are steamrolling toward oblivion, and most of the country is dead asleep.

So is there any hope for us?  Feel free to share what you think by posting a comment below…

    I can understand why DTW thinks Obama is the anti-Christ. He definitely is AN anti-Christ, if not THE anti-Christ.
    For some time I didn’t think he was THE anti-Christ because Daniel tells us that he will come from the people who destroyed the city (Jerusalem), and that was Rome.
    But a Roman does not have to be an Italian. Paul was a Jew from Tarsus and yet he was a Roman (citizen). So perhaps Obama can qualify as Roman as he is a blatant NWO proponent. It appears from Daniel and Revelation that the NWO will come under the auspices of Rome. Ancient Rome’s and the Vatican’s colours were and are Scarlet and Purple (the drunken whore of Revelation 17). I am fairly convinced that the Pope will be one of the two beasts of Revelation 13.
    The more subtle Obama becomes, and how the world is blind to it, the more I think he may well be THE anti-Christ. A while back I thought it could have been Tony Blair.
    The good thing is–from what I gather–we will be out of here (in the Rapture) by the time THE anti-Christ is revealed to the world.
    Arno Froese, an excellent End Times expositor who can be found on youtube, wrote an excellent book called Revelation 13: Satan’s Last Victory. I think is worth checking out. Perhaps it’s on Amazon or Abris.

  • Martin Horan

    Does DTW believe Obama is the Antichrist?

    Obama a Roman citizen because he is NWO? The NWO started in Babylon when Nimrod and his wife, Semiramis tried to unite the ancient world.

    I don’t think we should try to indentify the Antrichist right now. Yes, it could be anyone but the pinning of a name on him right now seems to be a little overboard. Yes, I do believe that all the world leaders, including most leaders in the apostasizing church, are busy ushering in the Antichrist. Nonetheless, not even they know who it is going to be eventually. Only God knows and it is his good pleasure not to reveal him to us right now. That he is already here is a certainty but I don’t think even he knows that he is eventually going to be the Antichrist.

  • Deborah (Discerning the World)

    Martin

    I said in the article above: “Is Barack Obama the antiChrist? In my personal opinion I ‘think’ so. I might be wrong,”

    DTW is not set on who THE antichrist is, sometimes I think it’s Obama, other times I think it’s the current Pope. And then sometimes I an not sure at all lol. ‘ We can only watch and see what happens next.

  • Martin Horan

    Thomas, Debs, Hi sorry, I’ve just got back on DTW.
    I could not have bothered to re-read what I typed before I posted my comment. (Sometimes I go on DTW late at night and am tired. Still no excuse!) When I typed DTW, I don’t know what I was thinking of. I didn’t mean DTW I’m sure I must have meant “some Christians” because I have read that on some sites. But definitely NOT on DTW. I apologise right away for that. I know very well you didn’t say that Obama was the anti-Christ. I am sorry for my silly mistake. Again, my apologies for my stupid slip. In fact, you are one of my two favourite sites. (DTW and The Berean Call.) I haven’t seen a single thing I can fault you guys on.
    Still, back to the point I meant: I can understand why some Christians think Obama is the anti-Christ… &c.
    Like you, Debs, I’m not 100% sure. From what I gather the Rapture will come before he’s recealed.
    Lol.

  • Kalev

    Martin,
    Are you aware that the “Rapture theory” is an Jesuit idea going back some 500-600 years and only came into Protestantism around 1830? I believe Yeshua (Jesus) made it clear in Matthew 24 (esp. vv. 29-31) that the believers alive at the end of time would go through the Great Tribulation. And John writes (Rev. 7) of a multitude coming out of the Tribulation. What are people, who thought they were “saved”, going to think when they wake up one day smack dab in the middle of the Tribulation? I’m sure there are a number of folks here that are a bit more “knowledgeable” than I am on this topic that could better elaborate. I have come to believe that it is quite possible that the USA of 2015 IS the End Time Babylon but not convinced that Obama is the anti-Christ, closet islamist more likely and why he and his admin. have issued this war on extremist within the USA. (Disclaimer for clarification; born, raised and living in the USA.) According to the list I am 85% extremist, 61/72. Hehe! Shalom!

  • Kalev who quoted Martin

    Did you know you are deceived by believing such a lot of trash? The Rapture is in the Bible for all to see. Have you not seen it there yet?

    The Bible believing Christians who will be going through the tribulation are those who enter the tribulation unsaved and are going to be saved during the tribulation under the powerful preaching of 144 000 Jewish evangelists. It’s as simple as that. Have you never figured it out? Or do you only read and heed the teaching of heretics who are enemies of God? The idea that the Rapture originated with a Jesuit and only came into Protestantism in 1830 is heresy.

    You’d better flee for your life if you think the USA is Babylon (Revelation 18:4) and go to Israel. However, I don’t know whether you will be safe there etiher because there are many who believe Israel is Babylon and even worse, Sodom and Gomorrah.

  • Kalev

    [deleted by DTW – it’s clear you are here to sow evils seed and this blog is not here for that, please go elsewhere]

  • Kalev,

    You should read my comments carefully. I never said or implied that you are a heretic. I said the notion that the Rapture started in 1830 is heresy.

    One of the watertight proofs that the Rapture and Second Coming cannot possibly be the same event is Luke 12:35-36

    Let your loins be girded about, and your lights burning; And ye yourselves like unto men that wait for their lord, when he will return from the wedding; that when he cometh and knocketh, they may open unto him immediately. (Luke 12:35-36).

    Unless you believe that the marriage of Jesus Christ and his Bride will be consummated by proxy in heaven you cannot possibly place the Rapture in the same time-frame as the Second Coming. The passage distinctly says that they should be ready when He returns FROM the wedding. If the Rapture had to occur simultaneously with the Second Coming the following scenario will ensue.

    1) His Bride will have to be divided into two separate groups. One group will appear with Him at his wedding next to Him when He presents her to his Father in heaven while the second group will be waiting for Him to appear at his his Second Coming during the Great Tribulation.

    OR

    2) His corporate Bride without exception will be preparing herself and waiting for Him to return at his Second Coming during the Great Tribulation.

    Both these scenarios are inconceivable.

    OR

    3) His corporate Bride is taken at the Rapture after which the Bema Throne judgement and the wedding will take place in heaven whilst the worst tribulation ever seen and experienced by man will occur on earth.

    This is the most consistent scenario and fits in perfectly with all the passages in Scripture that deal with his Parousia. For instance in Jude verse 14 and 15 we read, “And Enoch also, the seventh from Adam, prophesied of these, saying, Behold, the Lord cometh with ten thousands of his saints, To execute judgment upon all, and to convince all that are ungodly among them of all their ungodly deeds which they have ungodly committed, and of all their hard speeches which ungodly sinners have spoken against him. (Jude 1:14-15).

    This will occur at the end of the seven years tribulation (the time of Jacob’s trouble) when He returns at his Second Coming to judge the nations prior to the 1000 years of peace on earth.

    There are several distinct differences between the Rapture and the Second Coming, which I am not going to discuss them with you now.

    Should you be interested I will be too happy to present you those differences.

  • Kalev

    Tom,
    DTW deletes my comment then accuses me of sowing evil, then goes on to reply to my deleted comment.
    You are right this blog is not for me nor discussing the truth. Obviously you have determined the truth only as you perceive it. Bye modern day pharisees.

  • Kalev,

    I did not delete your comments.

  • Deborah (Discerning the World)

    Kalev

    I deleted them because you are not here to learn the truth, you are here to sow your beliefs on this website, you want us to listen to you. You came here with an attitude to change our way of thinking, and that is not gonna happen because what we speak is the truth.

    If you want to learn the truth Kalev there are over 400 articles on this website and many that explain the rapture in minute detail from the bible not from some lie someone made up on the internet re: the jesuits. I challenge you, if you really want to know the truth, spend some time reading this website, otherwise we were right in our initial discernment of your comments, that you are not interested in the truth, you are in fact a ‘change agent’.

  • Deborah (Discerning the World)

    Kalev

    As Tom stated, ‘should you be interested….’

    Are you interested in hearing what Tom has to say, or are you only interested in telling us what you know. If you are interested let’s talk.
