The FBI for the first time has identified fringe conspiracy theories as a domestic terrorist threat, according to a previously unpublicized document obtained by Yahoo News. 

The FBI intelligence bulletin from the bureau’s Phoenix field office, dated May 30, 2019, describes “conspiracy theory-driven domestic extremists,” as a growing threat, and notes that it is the first such report to do so. It lists a number of arrests, including some that haven’t been publicized, related to violent incidents motivated by fringe beliefs.

The document specifically mentions QAnon, a shadowy network that believes in a deep state conspiracy against President Trump, and Pizzagate, the theory that a pedophile ring including Clinton associates was being run out of the basement of a Washington, D.C., pizza restaurant (which didn’t actually have a basement).

“The FBI assesses these conspiracy theories very likely will emerge, spread, and evolve in the modern information marketplace, occasionally driving both groups and individual extremists to carry out criminal or violent acts,” the document states. It also goes on to say the FBI believes conspiracy theory-driven extremists are likely to increase during the 2020 presidential election cycle.

The FBI said another factor driving the intensity of this threat is “the uncovering of real conspiracies or cover-ups involving illegal, harmful, or unconstitutional activities by government officials or leading political figures.” The FBI does not specify which political leaders or which cover-ups it was referring to.

Gee, I wonder who that is referring to?

Could it be the chief conspiracy theorist who suggested that Barack Obama was not born in this country, thinks the last administration bugged his building, and believes media outlets only report fake news in order to undermine his presidency? 

Yeah, that could definitely be who they are referring to.

    Dehumanizing language often precedes genocide. cockroaches! Untermenschen!
    When the President encourages crowds to chant, “Lock her up,” and “Send her back” at rallies, or describes a city as a “disgusting, rat and rodent infested mess” where “no human being” would want to live, it sets a climate in which using lethal, dehumanizing language seems normal. That is simply dangerous.

      Rwanda genocide: 100 days of slaughter…

      “Cheadle was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Actor for his lead role as Rwandan hotel manager Paul Rusesabagina in the historical genocide drama film Hotel Rwanda (2004).

      Cheadle has campaigned to end the genocide in Darfur, Sudan. Cheadle and John Prendergast co-authored a book about this issue entitled
      Not On Our Watch: The Mission to End Genocide in Darfur and Beyond.
      With George Clooney, Brad Pitt, Matt Damon, David Pressman and Jerry Weintraub, Cheadle co-founded the Not On Our Watch Project, an organization focusing global attention and resources to stop and prevent mass atrocities. Cheadle was awarded the BET Humanitarian award of the year in 2007 for his humanitarian work for the people of Darfur and Rwanda.
      At the 2007 World Series of Poker, Cheadle and poker player Annie Duke organized an annual charity poker tournament, Ante Up for Africa.
      On December 13, 2007, Cheadle and fellow actor George Clooney were presented with the Summit Peace Award by the Nobel Peace Prize Laureates in Rome for their work to stop the genocide and relieve the suffering of the people of Darfur.
      Cheadle has worked with the United Nations on climate change concerns. He and Harrison Ford created a documentary event series entitled Years of Living Dangerously that provided first-hand reports on those affected by, and seeking solutions to climate change. He is also on the Advisory Board of Citizens’ Climate Lobby.
      In 2010, Cheadle was named U.N. Environment Program Goodwill Ambassador. Also in 2010, he and Prendergast published their second book:
      The Enough Moment: Fighting to End Africa’s Worst Human Rights Crimes.

    https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2019/jul/13/american-carnage-review-tim-alberta-politico-trump-republicans

    “Alberta is mindful that the winds of proto-Trumpism were present before Bush had left office. In his telling, Sarah Palin – who once bragged of her husband and herself: “He’s got the rifle, I’ve got the rack” – was a harbinger of a post-Bush world.

    American Carnage records Karl Rove, Bush’s political brain, branding Palin “vacuous” and evidencing a Republican tropism toward “wanting people who would throw bombs and blow things up”.
    While Trump was the “ultimate expression” of that impulse, Rove says, Palin was an “early warning bell”.”

    What about the stringent ratiocination of Christianity? How is that not a threat to the nature?

  9. anon August 2, 2019 at 8:53 am

    Um – every pulpit. That’s where terrorists are.
    They wear robes while reciting verse as literal, threaten you with fire, turn you into a sinning piece of shit for life, THEY DANGEROUSLY TRANSLATE TEXT AS ENTITLEMENT AND WEAPONRY, CHRONICALLY RAPE ANYTHING ALIVE UNDER 16 YEARS OLD, AND ABORT NATURE BY SELLING A MUTUAL TRANCE OF SIN WHILE FILLING THEIR COLLECTION PLATE.

      You trigger easily and you sound like an idiot. Don’t go to church if it makes you feel better. Better yet, get therapy and stop blathering nonsense about “a mutual trance of sin,” whatever that means.

      Conspiracy nuts are not limited to the loudmouths who expose themselves at rallies or through social media. They out themselves.

      Most insidious are those who are outwardly intelligent, respectable, and productive members of society. Among my family and friends, I count in that group a cousin who is a software architect for Oracle; a sister who is an ARNP/midwife, along with her husband, an industrial engineer; my CPA; and a niece who will soon be a practicing dentist. Some of them are obsessed with Clinton’s imaginary crimes, or with voter fraud, while others mock the Parkland school shooting survivors as pawns in some abstruse lib conspiracy.

      All feel threatened because the status quo is inexorably changing, and they look to Trump to protect their white privilege.

      They are not terrorists. They have a different kind of power–the power of their respectability and the positions they hold in society. Thus they are enabled to persuade others to think as they do, which is very dangerous indeed, because there’s no clear-cut way to disarm them.
