The Department of Justice is opening a new unit to investigate acts of domestic terrorism, a top national security official said during a Senate committee hearing Tuesday.
And will this unit be mobilized against, say, Antifa or BLM, given the following:
While there is no specific federal domestic terrorism statute, the federal government defines domestic terrorism as criminal acts dangerous to human life that appear to be intended to intimidate or coerce civilians or the policy of a government.
Of course it will. [/sarc] As with all things, the devil will be in the details.
Given that we already have such an agency (that would be the Fucking Bastard Institution), would this new bunch of Gummint agents be of a more, ummm, paramilitary nature? (Also unnecessary, given the Feebs’ Swatties, but nemmind.)
My guess is that this crew will be dedicated to going after the so-called (and non-existent) “Rightwing extremists”, and if they can’t find any, they’ll create them (see: David Koresh, Randy Weaver, Ashli Babbit, etc.) to justify their existence.
Whatever they call it, it would have sounded better in the original German: Gestapo.
Sigh. Just another rat’s nest to be rescinded by Executive Order on Day One of the new Republican presidency in 2024.
In the meantime, I guess it’s time to visit a Toyota dealership…
…because I’d hate to disappoint the new guys.
