Those not concerned about military exercises such as Jade Helm and Raider Focus, the massive movement of military assets on US soil, and all the other strange, disturbing events we have been following, are probably those that trust the MSM, those that would cause no waves, offer no resistance, when America is put into lockdown.... in other words, those not on the US governments "red list."
In yet another example of how the Obama administration's critics and political opponents are being targeted we see that over half a million dollars is being granted to a "new study" supposedly aimed at combatting "violent extremism," concentrating their efforts more on "right-wing" groups than on Islamic extremist groups.

The study draws more upon right-wing forums than upon the corners of the web inhabited by Islamist extremists.
“We will collect posts made in four active forums used by members of the far-right and three from the Islamic Extremist community, as well as posts made in Facebook, LiveJournal, Twitter, YouTube, and Pastebin accounts used by members of each movement,” the grant said.
“The findings will be used to document both the prevalence and variation in the ideological content of posts from members of each movement,” the grant continued. “In addition, we will assess the value of these messages in the social status of the individual posting the message and the function of radical messages in the larger on-line identity of participants in extremist communities generally.”
The project will also “identify the hidden networks of individuals who engage in extremist movements based on geographic location and ideological similarities.”
To understand the critical importance of why the "right-wing" is being targeted and why the majority of those on the "red list" are members of the right-wing, we look to the ideology.
Generally members of the political right are those that are pro-2nd Amendment, while those on the left generally favor gun control. The right are more for smaller government, then left bigger government. The right more outspoken on constitutional issues and liberty, the left more worried about political correctness.
Bottom line is that the right are more likely to prepare to fight for their liberties and generally better armed to do so, therefore before any type of lockdown or attempt to declare martial law, those on the red list would need to be taken out of the equation.
This "study," this focus, on those specific targets is the latest in the systematic attempt to label those willing to die before giving up their liberty and freedom, as "extremists," in order to negate the backlash when they are rounded up.
We saw in Florida that the US govrnment was actively training to "round people up," and if you need a reminder, go read the ANP article showing them doing so. We see the states listed as "hostile" in the scheduled Jade Helm 15 exercises as Texas ann Utah, both gun-friendly states with a significant amount of gun owners. We see the portion of California listed as an "insurgent pocket," as the one with considerable gang activity, hence "armed."
Does anyone really believe that is just a coincidence?
While the grant does not name the “far-right” groups that would be examined, other federal agencies have devoted their energy to the sovereign citizen movement.
The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) released a report on the movement, whose members believe that U.S. laws do not apply to them, just as the White House held its summit on violent extremism. The administration did not use the phrase “Islamist extremism” at the summit.
DHS stirred controversy in 2009 when it issued a report on right-wing extremism, which included veterans returning from combat as a potential terrorist threat.
The very people that would stand up, protect others, fight against the nation turning into one huge police state, are the very people being targeted, labeled and listed, right now.
If you use social media, take care of what you say because they are watching, they are documenting, they are labeling and they are adding names to their red list. Make no mistake, the red list are individuals targeted for termination.
