Yesterday, the FBI made a big show of arresting multiple alleged members of a "white supremacist" group they have designated as a national security threat equivalent to ISIS.
Federal prosecutors have charged black metal fan Cameron Denton, the Nazi Al-Baghdadi, with telling the police to send SWAT teams after a journalist and a politician as a childish prank.
Four other cohorts in "AtomWaffen," mostly young Chan trolls, were also taken into custody in the multi-state terror raid over mailing the Israeli lobbyists at the Anti-Defamation League edgy fliers that say "Our Patience Has Its Limits."
House Representative Karen Bass has complained loudly about the FBI's lack of transparency regarding arrest statistics related to "white supremacist terrorism." Her implication is that the career girls, left-wing crusaders and Zionist lickspittles in federaI law enforcement - some who have proudly accepted awards from the Anti-Defamation League for railroading James Fields - are "protecting" these supposed dangerous white supremacists.
The truth is, as Tucker Carlson has remarked, that "white terrorism" alarmism is nothing more than a politically motivated hoax comparable to the "8 intelligence agencies" claiming Russia stole the 2016 election for Donald Trump.
Warren Buffett once famously said "if a cop follows you for 500 miles, you're getting a ticket," and the string of marijuana arrests, coercing teenagers and the mentally ill into bogus pleas, prosecuting people for their answers to confusing questions on federal forms, and various other pedestrian crimes don't begin to justify the amount of federal resources being flushed down the toilet in surveilling and intimidating those the SPLC and ADL classify as "white nationalists." The FBI is hiding its statistics because they know what they're doing is wrong.
Since 2016, no member of a (white) nationalist organization has committed an act of terrorism with the possible exception of James Fields, who was loosely affiliated with Vanguard America and who would've beaten his trumped up political charges in any other time period.
Republicans Are No Ally
There is a House Bill on the docket intended to heed the call of the FBI Agents Association for a "domestic terrorism" law.
The Domestic Terrorism Penalties Act of 2019, introduced by Texas Republican Randy K. Weber with the support of 14 other GOP lawmakers and one Democrat, is perhaps the most dangerous piece of legislation drafted in decades.
This bill seeks to take regular crimes and add a "terrorism" enhancement if the suspect has dissident political views or belongs to an organization advocating for them. According to the language of the bill, domestic terrorism is defined as: "Whoever, with respect to a circumstance described in subsection (b), and with the intent to intimidate or coerce a civilian population or influence, affect, or retaliate against the policy or conduct of a government."
The crime of kidnapping, which the state tried to slap on Augustus Invictus and failed, would potentially get the accused life in prison.
The crime of Assault becomes "domestic terrorist assault," and gets you 30 years in the big house.
Political vandalism? 25 years. That's not a typo.
In practice, if this bill were made into law, a member of the Proud Boys - who the FBI would like to classify as a domestic terror group - could get 30 years in prison for punching an anarchist heckler in self-defense at a political rally.
Paint a political slogan on a piece of property? 25 years. For perspective, the average convicted rapist serves 5.4 years. The typical child molester serves 3 years. The median time done by a 1st degree murderer? 17.3 years.
The law also has a "conspiracy" clause. If you "conspire" to commit an assault, which according to ADL SHIELD recipient Thomas T. Cullen's legal reasoning can be uncharitably defined as members of the Rise Above Movement texting each other "Smash the Reds," you are punished as harshly as if you had committed the act.
Institutions associated with conservatism, like the Marine Corps, are also implementing draconian rules and regulations. 44% of all military recruits hail from the South, but Commandant General David Berger has recently announced a plan to thoroughly eradicate all symbols of Southern and Confederate heritage from bases.
At CPAC, the convention of the supposed conservative "grassroots," early supporters of President Trump like Alex Jones and Gavin McInnes have been "canceled" by the conservative movement and forcefully bounced, while left-wing extremists like Jared Holt have been given press credentials.
In "respectable" conservative media, not a single person has made a peep in defense of the Constitution.
The only response to the elite agenda to punish white men for their political beliefs has come from Kyle Shideler, the Director and Senior Analyst for Homeland Security and Counterterrorism at the Center for Security Policy.
In The Federalist, a pseudo right-wing publication famous for hiding its donors, Shideler responds to the New Jersey Department of Homeland Security's decision to elevate "white supremacy" as a "high-level threat" in response to Black Israelites killing Jews not with civil liberties concerns, but ideological ones.
According to Shideler, the problem is that groups the federal government defers to for classifying groups as terrorist have a bias against "conservatives" and "libertarians."
Shideler would like catches in any new legislation that would clearly protect the rights of anti-Muslim neo-cons like himself from terrorism prosecutions, by clearly designating "Islamists, Antifa, national socialists, black nationalists, or white supremacist groups" as groups who are not "committed" to the US Constitution, and thus fair game for persecution.
This appears to be inspired by Germany's law for the "protection of the Constitution," which gives the BRD's intelligence services a free hand to censor and arrest critics of the government. The milquetoast conservative challengers to Angela Merkel's highly unpopular immigration policy, Alternativ Fur Deutschland, have been subjected to extensive surveillance and pressure from the secret police thanks to this law.
Foreign Terrorist Organization (FTO) Designations
An article in the New York Times criticizes the strategy of using Congress to visibly legislate our rights away due to the potential for public scrutiny and backlash.
Instead, they recommend an idea previously proposed by General John Rutherford Allen, which is to create a list of foreign nationalist groups and then prosecute Americans in contact with them (which is inevitable thanks to the global nature of the internet) as enablers of terrorism. This gives the government extensive powers to suspend your constitutional rights.
To understand the ramifications of a Foreign Terrorist Organization classification, when Trump issued an empty threat to add Mexican drug cartels to the list of FTOs, the media and Mexican government understood it as a warning that he was going to order drone strikes and send troops to kill drug lords.
They have good reason to believe this. A few months after Trump added the Iranian Revolutionary Guard as an FTO, he greenlit the assassination of Iranian state official General Qassem Soleimani, who led the group.
Representative Max Rose has already drafted suggestions for groups to add to the list: Azov Battalion, an anti-Russian militia that receives weapons from the US and Ukrainian governments, National Action, a defunct British based group that was primarily internet based, and the Nordic Resistance Movement, an above ground Scandinavian protest group that is legally permitted in Sweden.
These groups are wildly disparate and, with the exception of Azov, are not waging armed struggle. The choice of adding an organization like NRM appears to be motivated by the fact that they have many American fans and supporters who Rose would like to see droned or tortured in Guantanamo Bay. In the case of National Action, which was founded on the internet forum Iron March, they also had extensive online ties with people from all over the world
State Department designations are completely arbitrary and decided by the president without oversight. The executive office could for example find that the Scandza Forum, a gathering of nationalist intellectuals from around the world, is a terrorist organization without giving a reason, and then subject everyone who sends money or attends the conference as material supporters of terrorism.
The Real Motive
On February 26th, the FBI gave a presentation to the House of Representatives detailing what they are doing to fight "anti-Semitism."
In it, the FBI admits to playing a prominent role in influencing social media companies in their decisions on who can and cannot use their platforms:
It is also important to highlight our outreach to social media and technology companies. FBI interactions with social media companies center on education and capacity building, in line with our goal to assist companies in developing or enhancing their terms of service to address violent extremist exploitation of their platforms.
They assure the public that they are protecting First Amendment speech and privacy, but do not detail how. They expect us to take their word for it.
It is unknown how significant the role of the government is in the mass censorship of dissidents from social media, but it isn't relevant. As Mike Enoch has said, the distinction between private and public is irrelevant, it is a "system."
Amazon, the book vending monopoly, has given Jewish organizations the right to engage in cyber book burnings without much in the way of government pressure. Most of Counter-Currents' catalogue has been eliminated, as has the written work of various journalists, scholars and historians like Colin Flaherty, Kevin MacDonald, Jared Taylor, and multiple Holocaust revisionists. Even materials of primary historical value, like collections of speeches by Third Reich officials, are in their iron sights. This is not a war on terrorism, it's a war on ideas.
In a time where government officials across the country are emptying their jail cells and "law and order" Republican Donald Trump has implemented "criminal justice reform," (which he admitted is highly unpopular) public safety is clearly not why our oligarchs are having this conversation.
A better explanation can be found in the work of University of Connecticut academic Peter Turchin.
According to Turchin, who combines historicism with mathematics to draw forecasts of political stability, the United States and other liberal Western nations are due for "popular mobilizations," potentially violent, starting in the 2020s. Turchin famously predicted the rise of the 2016 Trump populist movement and Brexit.
The thesis of Turchin's book, Ages of Discord, states that declining living standards, mass immigration, the corruption of liberal institutions and polarization in general have primed the United States and other liberal plutocracies for collapse.
The fall may be bloody, or it could be a less dramatic Soviet-style downfall, but it's happening, says Turchin. He has lectured to Jews and members of the managerial elite in Washington and New York, who in turn have debated his work in the publications they read. A handful of billionaires, thanks to the internet, have been exposed as the architects of our nation's decline. They know they have lost the public's consent to rule and are preparing for war against their subjects as a list ditch effort to cling to power.
Telling the truth has never been cheap. Dissidents should mentally prepare to withstand the erratic spasms of a monster in its death throes. The coming years are bound to be trying times for those who refuse to submit to the doctrines and dogmas of an immoral and oppressive system.
