On Friday, John Hinderaker posted an article at Power Line Blog about the current priority of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI).
The article quotes a recent article at PJ Media:
Current and former FBI agents have come forward saying the Biden administration is deliberately exaggerating the danger posed by white supremacists. They claimed that high-ranking FBI officials were pressuring field agents to fabricate domestic terrorism cases and label people as white supremacists in order to “meet internal metrics.”
John Hinderaker at Power Line Blog states in the article that he has never met a white supremacist. Since moving to North Carolina, I have met two. On the surface they seemed to be ordinary people, but when you talked to them, their ideas were scary. However, I don’t believe in either case they will ever act on those ideas.
The article at PJ Media notes:
“The demand for white supremacy” coming from FBI brass “vastly outstrips the supply of white supremacy,” one agent told the Washington Times. “We have more people assigned to investigate white supremacists than we can actually find.”
The FBI agent, who requested anonymity in order to discuss internal bureau politics, said that top officials in the FBI “have already determined that white supremacy is a problem” and established a policy to prioritize investigations into racially-motivated domestic extremism.
“We are sort of the lapdogs as the actual agents doing these sorts of investigations, trying to find a crime to fit otherwise First Amendment-protected activities,” he said. “If they have a Gadsden flag and they own guns and they are mean at school board meetings, that’s probably a domestic terrorist.”
It is sad that the FBI is wasting their time on this nonsense when there are serious threats facing America. Our millennial gets most of its news from social media–including TikTok, which is owned by the Chinese, who do not have our best interests at heart. How many of our college professors have been accused of spying for the Chinese? How trustworthy are the people currently negotiating the nuclear treaty with Iran?
As long as a white supremacist does not act on his beliefs, he is entitled to believe anything he wants to. If he wants to cut himself off from some really special Americans, that is his privilege. However, if he is not harming anyone, he is allowed to believe anything he chooses, and he also has the right of free speech. We don’t have to agree with what he says, but we can agree that he has the right to say it.
