"Concern over the domestic extremists has to a certain degree eclipsed the focus on foreign terrorist organizations such as al-Qaida and the Islamic State..."

Domestic extremists is the new Republicans.

A target rich environment is the same environment that covid loves to nest in.

FTA: Both Mayorkas and Attorney General Merrick Garland testified to a Senate committee this week that racially or ethnically motivated violent extremists pose the greatest domestic threat to the country at the moment.

I'm sure the Senate committee / staff will do something meaningful with this delineation of fringe folk besides viewing them as new source of unexploited rubes to run the grift on.

They really dance around the fact that white supremacists are the source of the domestic terror threats
 
2021-05-15 10:16:34 AM  
Well, sure, there's always a threat that a right-wing terrorist is gonna do something terrorist-y.

That is the most clever Ben Garrison work I've ever seen, and the labeling is largely a reasonable addition to the work.

I'd totally visit such a park.

And evangelical churches are their farking madrassas.

So many "weekend shootin' retreats" just for the boys at those farking places.

I was led to believe that the extremists cited in the article were all of a mind that the virus was a hoax.  If so, why would their level of activity change?

They do it for two reasons.

1.If they come out and condemn them publicly they feel they will lose white voters.

2.The know how batshiat insane they are and they know if they do anything about it they will go after them and their families.

Republicans brought this on their selves.  They have thrown the entire nation under the bus because they are pussies.

Let's say a Twinkie represents the amount of Republican terrorist activity in January 2016. According to this morning's sample, Republican terrorist Twinkies would form a pile 35 feet long, weighing approximately 600 pounds

Saw my first "yeah, you're white and in your 50s and still wearing a MAGA hat, pretender today."

Otherwise, surprisingly quiet at the grocery store, so maybe people are staying home in anticipation of the unvaccinated shoving their faces into yours.

More places are actually open.

OTOH, hopefully their levels of activity drop to zero because they haven't vaccinated.

it seems to me, mandating disguises for everyone, would logically embolden those intent on nefarious  activities.  Because it would be easier to hide your face.  And you can act all uppity and ask non-mask wearers to mask up! you heathens.  They would never guess you had a white power tattoo under your mask.

Yeah, the similarities are everywhere, even in their views on women and "outsiders".
If the Middle East terrorists were white and worshipped Jehovah instead of Allah, Republicans would welcome them with open arms.

It's not a "lone wolf", it's stochastic terrorism.

The republicans, the NRA, OAN, Fox News, even just the random Q idiots left on social media know exactly what they're doing. Spew enough hate filled propaganda and EVENTUALLY someone will shoot up a black church, or a mosque, or drive a car in to a group of protestors, or set fire to an immigration services center or SOMETHING like that.

They don't know who is going to do it or when but they absolutely know that it's going to happen. That's the whole point.

We really need to clean house as far as law enforcement is concerned.  Fire and take away the pension of any officer who displays fascist symbols would be a good start.  With the money saved on pensions we can fill all the potholes.

This amounts to the government warning us about the civil war that's starting.

Maybe that's a big dramatic but if should one break out, this analysis would be spot-on.

FTFA:

" "Today's terrorism-related threat landscape is more complex, more dynamic, and more diversified than it was several years ago," DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas said in releasing the new bulletin."

Who says RWNJ are against diversity?

When will Donald condemn RADICAL WHITE TERRORISM?!?

He's still the President, right? All the red hat wearing howler monkeys still think so.

Yeah... Can't kill many people if everyone's home.

/Course, why need a terrorist attack when a giant sold-out shoulder-to-shoulder concert half full of unvaccinated people will do all the work for them?
