Since the day his regime took over in Washington, Barack Obama’s blinkered “intelligence” services have been warning that it is conservative groups and “militias” that are the real, lurking danger in America and recently Obama’s FBI did it again claiming that “militias” are looking to attack Muslims inside the USA.
In a report issued in May only to police departments and other law enforcement agencies, the FBI’s Counterterrorism Division insisted that “militia extremists” are looking to kill Muslims. The report goes on to cite two–yes only two–instances of “militia” leaders saying they are mad at Muslims and may want to target them.
No actual instances of this desire to attack Muslims has been seen, though. Only talk. Still, the FBI is all worried over Americans with guns.
An intelligence bulletin issued by the FBI’s Counterterrorism Division in late May warns that so-called “militia extremists” are likely to begin targeting Muslim institutions, including mosques and other religious facilities. The bulletin titled “Militia Extremists Expand Target Sets To Include Muslims” was obtained by Public Intelligence after being released to law enforcement in late May, just days before a planned “freedom of speech” rally outside a Phoenix mosque which attracted numerous individuals dressed in camouflage, tactical gear and carrying loaded assault weapons.
Based primarily on a “large body of source reporting generated mainly since 2013,” the bulletin states that militia extremists are “expanding their target sets to include Muslims and Islamic religious institutions in the United States.” The recent targeting of Muslims augments prior FBI analysis, contained in a January 2015 report, which found that “established militia extremists target government personnel and law enforcement officers, perceived threats from abroad, and individuals or institutions that seek to constrain Second Amendment rights.”
Multiple FBI “sources with varying levels of access” report that militia extremists have been conducting surveillance of “diverse locations including Alaska, Arizona, Indiana, Montana, New York, North and South Carolina, Utah, and Texas.” This reporting indicates that extremists have often focused on targeting Islamic facilities, such as mosques or community centers, though some have discussed targeting individual Muslims within their community. In September 2014, a source with “good access” reported to the FBI that “militia extremists in Mississippi discussed kidnapping and beheading a Muslim and posting video of the attack to the Internet.” Likewise, another source reported in early 2015 that the leader of a militia extremist group expressed “interest in training members for direct action against ISIS and associated ISIS locations.”
The FBI concludes that increased targeting of Muslims is being fueled by two fundamental misconceptions that are described as “salient perceptions within militia extremism that contribute toward an anti-Muslim bias”
With attacks by Muslims being thwarted right and left, with multiple Muslims being caught trying to leave the USA to join the ISIS jihad, and with bombing threats being constantly stopped by the FBI, with mass shooting breaking out at the hands of Muslims, it seems that the FBI is more worried about “militias” (i.e. white, male conservatives) attacking Muslims inside the USA than they are in Muslims attacking everyone else.
Could a “militia” perpetrate a crime against Muslims inside the USA? Sure. But since none ever have and it is thousands of times less likely that a “militia” will attack a Muslim than that a Muslim will commit an act of terror in the USA, one has to wonder where the FBI’s resources are being spent and if they are being directed in the proper manner?
One also has to wonder how much Obama’s often pro-Muslim agenda influences the FBI?
But Obama has pushed his FBI to go soft on Domestic Muslim terror before. In August of last year, for instance, his FBI threat matrix excluded Muslim extremism as a worry and made white people the object of worry.
This is all of a piece with how Obama has run the security services. Story after story proves to us that Obama has systematically instructed our policing agencies to steer clear of calling Islam a danger to this nation and repeatedly we see groups like the FBI and the Department of Homeland Security claiming that it is patriotic, tea party-going, whites who are the real danger.
What we have here is the Democrat Party agenda and PCism forcing our security agencies to ignore the real threats we face. Worse, it is obvious that Obama has wiped 9/11 from the memory of those who are supposed to be keeping us all safe.
