A leaked British Army training sheet attempts to warn soldiers about the dangers of right-wing extremism, and Trump checks A LOT of those boxes. Cenk Uygur, Brooke Thomas, and Jordan Klepper, hosts of The Young Turks, break it down.

“A leaked British Army document designed to help officers spot potential “extreme right-wing” behavior in the ranks includes warning signs that mimic the language and behavior of many mainstream conservatives in the United States — including President Donald Trump.

The 20-box chart, first reported by BuzzFeed News, warns officers to be on the lookout for individuals with a range of behaviors including describing themselves as “patriots” and their political opponents as “traitors,” using fake news to demonize immigrants, railing against the supposed dangers of multicultural towns and cities, and threatening violence when losing an argument.

The British Army confirmed to ThinkProgress that the document was genuine, but a spokesperson stressed that the document was not meant for general circulation. Rather it was drawn up in response to a specific incident — the arrest of four soldiers in 2017 for being part of the banned neo-Nazi group National Action — to provide guidelines for the chain of command, in hopes of preventing any similar instances in the future.”

  1. Cenk is a meaningless big mouth. Never did like him or the Young Turks.
    When does Turkey plan to invade Britain? Haven’t seen Erdogman visiting London in a long time if at all. besides the British government is too busy selling arms/ bone saws and beheading swords to Fraudi Arabia.

    • John, Turkish immigrants. Not sure how many of them in GB, but in Germany they are in millions and many of them fanatic Erdogan supporters. In London there are also millions of muslim immigrants. Just one Word from certain moslem leaders and those millions will be on the streets.

  2. The best place to hide is in the middle of everything, right Cenk. You don’t have to tell wheter You support Erdogan nor wheter You have double or triple citizenship on USA, Israel and Turkey. One of those arrested soldiers was in fact finnish. I don’t think he was there, because Britain declared war on us in 1942, a war with no bullets shot, but more likely that couple of years ago Erdogan declared war on Belgium if they voted wrong.
