Over the course of the last year, there has been a concerted effort by the liberal left to vilify and demonize supporters of Donald Trump, often by making direct comparisons between the MAGA Movement and the rioters who stormed the Capitol on January 6th, 2021.
This has been apparent throughout not only the mainstream media, but via our federal government as well, particularly with the announcement of a new DOJ task force set to handle “domestic terrorism”.
Now that the left is openly targeting those with opposing political views to them, lumping them all together as a “terror threat”, the military has decided to provide a little show of force as well.
The U.S. Army’s annual unconventional warfare exercise Robin Sage is set to kick off across rural North and South Carolina this month, pitting Special Forces candidates against simulated guerillas fighting for the fictional nation of “Pineland.” The exercise is so realistic and spans such a large area that the U.S. Army has issued notices to local law enforcement agencies warning them not to mistake the exercise for a real insurrection, an error that has cost one soldier his life during a previous Robin Sage event.
The exercise is designed to simulate a special forces-led guerilla campaign against the forces of the “United Provinces of Atlantica,” a fictional island off America’s eastern seaboard. Candidates embed themselves with mock guerillas fighting on behalf of the “Republic of Pineland,” a United States ally. Members of the 1st Batallion, 1st Special Warfare Training Group have even published a 157-page fictional “history” book that provides a worldbuilding backstory for the exercise, titled Atlantica: A Concise History.
One has to wonder if this isn’t some sort of message to the paramilitary militias of the far-right?
