This is messed up, what the hell is going on! We all know and it’s been said countless times that white power and supremacist related groups are responsible for most domestic terrorism. Bombings, hate crimes, murders… you name it! So, by all regards of what terrorism is, they should be at very very very least on the terror watch list! It seems the Trump admin doesn’t think so…. They are more interested in created the baddy, the big bad Muslim terrorist.
Things are going down the sink quicker than I could have imagined!
Reuters just reported:
The Trump administration wants to revamp and rename a U.S. government program designed to counter all violent ideologies so that it focuses solely on Islamist extremism, five people briefed on the matter told Reuters.
The program, “Countering Violent Extremism,” or CVE, would be changed to “Countering Islamic Extremism” or “Countering Radical Islamic Extremism,” the sources said, and would no longer target groups such as white supremacists who have also carried out bombings and shootings in the United States.
Such a change would reflect Trump’s election campaign rhetoric and criticism of former President Barack Obama for being weak in the fight against Islamic State and for refusing to use the phrase “radical Islam” in describing it. Islamic State has claimed responsibility for attacks on civilians in several countries.
The CVE program aims to deter groups or potential lone attackers through community partnerships and educational programs or counter-messaging campaigns in cooperation with companies such as Google (GOOGL.O) and Facebook (FB.O).
Some proponents of the program fear that rebranding it could make it more difficult for the government to work with Muslims already hesitant to trust the new administration, particularly after Trump issued an executive order last Friday temporarily blocking travel to the United States from seven predominantly Muslim countries.
Yup, so all those white supremacists would be free to meet, talk, be as conniving and damn racist as they please and scheme whatever they want without being watched by the FBI or anyone…. That is until they commit a crime and ruin or end more lives,
This is developing so more details are coming through but we would love to hear your thoughts!
