101st Battalion Commander’s outrageous e-mail to subordinates regarding US hate groups
Using the infamous Southern Poverty Law Center as a guide, the lieutenant colonel set out to educate.
Using the subject line of ‘Domestic Hate Groups,’ LTC Jack Rich warned his subordinate leaders that,
Many events have been taking place across the country – just want to ensure everyone is somewhat educated on some of the groups out there that do not share our Army Values.
Before identifying for his troops who the haters in America are, he makes it clear that his email is an action memo:
When we see behaviors that are inconsistent with Army Values – don’t just walk by – do the right thing and address the concern before it becomes a problem.
In other words, this misguided Army ‘leader’ is telling his junior officers that they are to actively intervene with any of their troops that they suspect has ‘hateful’ beliefs.
Commissar Rich identifies the Family Research Council, American Family Association, United States Justice Foundation, Atlas Shrugs, Sharia Awareness Network, Bare Naked Islam, and many other organizations as hate groups.
Thought police have infected the U.S. Military. Never mind that troublesome First Amendment.

BLOGGER NOTE: The First Amendment does not restrict private thoughts, which may or may not lead to acts of discrimination. For LTC Rich to assume that the difference of opinion (protected by the First Amendment) must be confronted as an act of discrimination makes honest law-abiding citizens cringe.
