The war on conservatism wages on and the top law enforcement agency in the United States proved they will stop at nothing to perpetuate it.
Over the weekend the FBI demanded that Americans spy on and report their family, neighbors, and friends to better clamp down on “suspicious activity.” The federal police told citizens to look out for “signs of mobilization to violence” so they could better identify and snuff out “homegrown extremism.”

In other words: the FBI is casting a wider net in the hopes family members of Pro-Trump conservatives will rat on them. They’ve made it glaringly obvious that no rights granted in the Constitution, nor laws passed protecting right to privacy, will prevent them from waging a war against America First conservatism.
Included in the FBI tweet is a link with details on how to more clearly identify “homegrown violent extremists” using special indicators invented by the top cops. The indicators are said to be “observable behaviors that could help determine whether individuals or groups are preparing to engage in violent extremist activities, such as conducting an attack or traveling overseas to join a foreign terrorist organization.”
And by “terrorist organization” every knows they do not mean radical Islamic terrorism, left-wing domestic terrorism, or the terror happening on the US-Mexico border — they mean right-wing “white supremacy” groups. Of these groups, most notable the Proud Boys, feature many non-white members and remain the FBI’s main target because of their dedication to Former President Trump.
FBI Director Christopher Wray previously told lawmakers last March that “the problem of domestic terrorism has been metastasizing across the country for a long time now and it’s not going away anytime soon. At the FBI, we’ve been sounding the alarm on it for a number of years now.”
He said last September, before testimony before legislators on the House Homeland Security Committee, that “within the domestic terrorism bucket, the category as a whole, racially motivated violent extremism is, I think, the biggest bucket within that larger group. And within the racially motivated violent extremist bucket, people subscribing to some kind of white supremacist-type ideology is certainly the biggest chunk of that.”
Top Republicans and conservatives could not help but notice the glaring similarities between the FBI’s plea and that of many communist countries, like Cuba or the Soviet Union, who demanded their citizens spy on each other as well.
In both Cuba & China, they also ask children to spy on their parents…. https://t.co/ss9TKNEBlz

This is outrageous. The @FBI has a growing credibility problem and this type of sinister snitching is clearly unhelpful.

These people protected Hillary, abused NSA surveillance databases against Americans, used known, unreliable DNC-funded propaganda to spy on Trump, perpetuated the Russia hoax, & lied to the FISC repeatedly.
And now they tell you that you should spy on your family. https://t.co/dNh4zBnBgR
