Debunked: "Government Labels those who Grow Their Own Food ‘Extremists’"

The claim:

I then googled:

and the only mention of this 'story' was on conspiracy websites.

I then specifically searched the site of (Politically Conservative) Judicial Watch for the story.

... and there was no such article. I even used the search feature on Judicial Watch, and that also returned no results referring to this story. Is this a complete fabrication???

Did you go to the source passages in the training manual? I can't download or open it for some reason.

Kind of. The lesson plan is on Judicial Watch. It does not mention farmers.
http://www.judicialwatch.org/wp-content/uploads/2013/08/2161-docs.pdf

Nor does the actual article:
http://www.judicialwatch.org/press-...gest-mainstream-conservative-views-extremist/
Judicial Watch is a conservative organization. Tea Party style. They are complaining because the lesson plan seems like it's pointing the finger at the type of "patriot" they represent, and because JW dislike the SPLC.

I agree the original story is bunkum unless any Mainstream Conservative wants to point out just what is officially stated in that manual is against MC other than an explanation of current recruitment themes.

And there is absolutely nothing there about growing ones own food so NN's claim is also bunkum.

I should note that both groups in this case are by definition practicing extremism.

What's especially silly is that the training manual's purpose is clear, and all the terms used are explicitly defined. NN ignores this entirely, cherry picks two phrases from a later section and proceeds to assign their own spin to it.

You would literally have to not read the document to believe it states what is claimed.

This page details a comparable Equal Opportunity Advisor role in the Navy.

Edit: here's a course outline from the Defense Equal Opportunity Management Institute.

Both claims.

It is nothing but propaganda wars.

People don't understand what happens and why when you agree to serve in the military.

Both claims.
Yeah, the "TruthTube" article in the OP is just a copy/paste job from Natural Society, which is a fountain of conspiracy-themed alt-med. Among the other obvious problems, the original author apparently can't distinguish between "over 133 documents" and one 133-page document.

Why do these issues come up in an equal opportunity course?
It's not really "equal opportunities", it's about "Equal Opportunity and Treatment Incidents". Basically about hate crimes, and racial, religious, and sexual harassment. Extremism and Supremism generally includes racism and intolerance of outside groups.
