The argument from the right is that President Joe Biden's administration is weaponizing the government against Republicans. Still, the administration explains that domestic terrorists come from far-right groups like those at the Jan. 6 attacks. Militia groups like the Proud Boys and Oath Keepers were working with Republican Party leaders and lawmakers.

Cancervative filth showed their true colors on January 6. How disgusting.

The Heritage Foundation was quickly triggered by being included in the bottom rung of the pyramid among the right entry-level groups.


And then made death threats.

"Law enforcement continues to investigate the motive behind the attack, but initial reporting suggests the attacker fixated on mass shootings and held views consistent with racially or ethnically motivated violent extremist (RMVE) and involuntary celibate violent extremist ideologies," NTAS says. It also notes that "law enforcement continues to investigate the motive behind the attack" that killed six people at a Christian elementary school in Nashville in March, with investigation revealing so far that "the individual studied other mass murderers."

"Also in March 2023, a RMVE driven by a belief in the superiority of the white race was arrested and charged with allegedly attempting to use an improvised incendiary device to burn down a church in Ohio that was planning to host a drag-themed event," the bulletin continued. "In February 2023, two RMVEs driven by a belief in the superiority of the white race were arrested and are now awaiting trial for plotting an attack against electrical substations in Maryland. These arrests followed a series of recent attacks against electrical infrastructure, which some DVEs have praised and leveraged to call for more attacks on critical infrastructure." ...

The FBI has changed how it counts incidents. Historically if they were investigating a militia group with several members it was one case with sub files for each militia member. Now every member is its own case It's done to try and drive up domestic terrorism numbers. It justifies more unlawful surveillance.
