It's strange how warnings of rising terrorism used to make me think of furious Al-Qaeda types blowing up cafes in Europe and the Middle East, but now my first thought is furious right-wingers shooting up stores, churches, and schools right here in the USA.

Not as long as they keep getting appointed to life time positions in the judicial branch

Also DHS: "we are here to do nothing at all about it, because we are on the same side as the people doing the violence."

[...]with risks of domestic terror attacks committed by lone-wolf actors or groups motivated by personal grievances and violent ideologies.

So white/Christian nationalists (yes, lots of overlap there)

I totally understand.  Who doesn't like to take in a show during the holidays?

A report from DHS referred to a heightened threat environment, with risks of domestic terror attacks committed by lone-wolf actors or groups motivated by personal grievances and violent ideologies.

Just say Republicans.  It will save everyone a lot of time.
 
2022-12-02 10:52:52 AM  
Terrorism won't but the DHS feels like it will.

Here, I wrote the next headline "He was on our radar"

This is why unions are important.

Are they going to break out the color coded terror chart again, leave it in the middle and once in a while raise the level?

It might if the department would quit offering triple overtime.

Continue to enjoy taking off your shoes and submitting to a body cavity search at the airport. However, the good news is you don't need to wear a mask, because Freedom.

Has there been a year post 9-11 (since its inception) where DHS didn't post the holiday "woooo, non-specific terrorism might happen around the holidays, wooooo" in a spooky voice while doing ghost fingers?
 
2022-12-02 11:15:26 AM  
I thought this was an announcement about CPAC having a Christmas conference.

At this point, we can condemn white conservative extremism without using Islamophobic imagery.

That's their job.  To secure funding.

Democrats: Bust up 12 unions

Also Democrats: Domestic Terrorists are a threat!
 
2022-12-02 11:23:19 AM  
Those terrorists need to demand holidays off work.  They should join a union.  Maybe the police union.

Oh, wait.
 
2022-12-02 11:23:36 AM  
Did we already forget about the AT&T central office bombing of Christmas 2020?

Oh I know, but if we're stuck paying for this worthless bullshiat maybe we can make it fun.
It's basically a Christmas tradition at this point.

They can dress up all the various terrorist stereotypes/caricatures in little santa hats and do a musical number. Like a 12 days of Christmas, but with various potential terrorist attacks filled in.
"And an envelope full of Anthrax! Hey!"

Too late.

Also, the police union is the only union that won't get busted by the government.

Imagine all the whining from Republicans if they'd mentioned the greatest threat was from right-wing terrorists. Until this wave of violence ends it's gonna be a mixture of soft-pedaling and both-sidesing from law enforcement and legacy media.

Police: we're going on strike

Abolitionists: YAY!

Everyone else: wait what?

Sure, terrorism won't take a holiday. Be vigilant. Stand watch. Take off your shoes for 20 farking years even though we haven't found a single threat in one of them.

This is DHS. They ARE Republicans. They're referring to Antifa super soldiers waiting for the right moment to strike our precious vulnerable police stations.

They won't go after their own, if they did maybe there's a couple of mass shootings that wouldn't have happened.

Somewhere between Susan Collins has a good mind to look into it and almost vexed.  In other words, if you are LGBT, Black, Brown, Jewish, Muslim, etc. be aware.

You could always email Senator Collins from Maine. She's an expert on being concerned

They'll need a "Domestic Terrorism" threat level chart. I propose they use the colors of Fruit Stripe gum so there's no mistaking which chart you're referencing.
