In The Future Everyone Will be Extremists

An Army Reserve training poster lists various types of extremists. Including the usual, al-Qaeda, and the Muslim Brotherhood whom the Obama administration called mostly secular.

Also included the world's 1.18 billion Catholics and of course Islamophobes.... those are people who have an irrational fear of having their head sloppily chopped off with a butcher knife.

Hot Air: This one earns the coveted Duke University triple facepalm, the highest honor we can award for self-beclowning. An Army Reserve training class attempted to instruct soldiers on the various extremist groups of the world, dutifully noting al-”Quaeda,” with with the US armed forces are at war, and Hamas, which the State Department lists as a terrorist organization. Both of those, however, come below a couple of extremist groups so fringe that only about 60 million Americans count themselves among their ranks:

One does have to be amused, however, at the last entry on the list — “Islamophobia”. That follows a half-dozen references to various Islamist groups, including one that the Obama administration is currently attempting to engage (the Muslim Brotherhood), and “Sunni Muslims” — without any other qualifiers. I imagine the Shi’ites appreciate that conclusion...
