Well, this has gone largely unreported.
The 2014 shooting of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Mo., has spawned a violent domestic threat from “black identity extremists” who have stepped up attacks on police.
“It is very likely that BIEs’ perceptions of unjust treatment of African-Americans and the perceived unchallenged illegitimate actions of law enforcement will inspire premeditated attacks against law enforcement over the next year,” the report said. “It is very likely additional controversial police shootings of African-Americans and the associated legal proceedings will continue to serve as drivers for violence against law enforcement.”

Yes, indeed, more bullsh*t from a bigoted Trump administration, politically motivated and compromised FBI, as ran by the KKK grand poobah, Jeff Sessions.
None of us in the minority community are fools and will hold this all the more against Trump and the conservatives in general for acquiescing in such nonsense.
Here is my take
https://www.brennancenter.org/blog/fbi- … extremists
"None of us in the minority community are fools"
Are you so sure? SOME of them sure seem to be, as they have openly called for killing cops and SOME have even done so. There are radicals and whackos in every race - the minorities in the US are not pure as driven snow.
But I'm sure Trump will be held responsible anyway...
OK, Wilderness, I hear you, and yes Trump will be held responsible, his administration, his Attorney General and his FBI Director.
Can you document where you get your information that "Some" has made these threats to the point where the entire movement to address Police abuse in our communities warrant us all being designated as BIE? That is where Trump is leading, you know, 'shut up' about rotten aspects of American life or be designated a terrorist.
I vomit at the thought at such a person in the role of "commander and chief"

So, now with bogus designations, Trump and his goons find ways to criminize the very fact that you have a brown skin. This a way to get after any dissent and protests from blacks, from BLM protests to kneeling at football games. I am sorry, I have no affinity for the Right, specifically, nor for conservatives who by supporting Trump are guilty as well.
And people consider me an alarmist? We are to fight Trump, tooth and nail. With these continued attempts at oppression, there can be really no peace between us for some time.
By all means, use every peaceful process to fight for your beliefs. Don't fall into the trap of commenting in a manner which can be seen as approval of violence.
As found in my other posts regarding Democratic change within the system, I have never indicated otherwise. But if the Right insists on shutting out dissent through whatever means, things will get out of hand and what trouble there will be shall be initiated by 'their side'... As long as we all understand that.
How far we in America have come from the days of MLK and his teachings . So much for peaceful revolution ?
First of all, welcome back. It just isn't the same when I don't have you around to spar with....
Second, I also know that J. Edgar Hoover and the FBI harassed King and the Civil Rights Movement as Communist inspired. So, much for the idea of peaceful protest. What about that? Today, seems like more of the same old hash, just in another bowl?
Thank you Credence , I think ...... Unfortunately , today's mostly media driving , supporting and inventing of the newest face on "race wars " lacks much in the way of moral and ethical standing , MLK had incredible following of all ethnicites based on just his simple morality however today's million dollar a game NFL players , NBA , holly-wood actor spokespeople , and lackey politicians lack much in the way of adding any substance to good cause.
Keeping with the original OP , ie. Terrorism -counter-terrorism ,..... when government starts looking in to finances ,political , logistical supporting and planning by organized outside and even international influences , ex. the Muslim Brotherhood for instance , THEN it all gets pretty serious or at least , it should .
Cop Killing , property destroying riots , street violence like the "Knock-out games " , campus training and subversion tactics supported and planned by the government subsidized and financed education systems ; ..........of course It should certainly be at least investigated by the law. Would you deny that ?
True about King's wide support, interesting to note though at the highest levels of Government, he was still considered a subversive. We should not need Dr. Kings to promote a cause, sometimes it is just as simple as few making the point, recognizing that if Itis without merit , it won't go far, but if it is..... The Kneeling thing has international attention and has gone far beyond Trump and his mere disapproval.
Am I to presume that all those repugnant right wing clubs are not receiving funding from somewhere?So, what is wrong with funding when good progressivesof means help in promoting what I consider good causes? Why should I believe that that makes these groups illegitimate in itself? When American Black political movements attempt liaison with ISIS, I will be the first to sound the alarm. I have yet to see this proven from a reliable source, not Infowars.
No one has really established any real connection between Black on black crime/nefarious activities and some broad brush of basically labeling all Black people as terrorists except Uncle Toms, of course. Because, you cannot be Black in this society and not have a grievance or two with the predominant culture. Most of us, affluent or not, understand the issue of police overreach and can relate to the purpose behind BLM. I think that this all this BIE stuff is alarmist, and a sinister way to create "terrorists" out of people exercising their Constutional right to dissent within the race baiting Trump regime.
Maybe Antifa will be classified as domestic terrorists. I have read reports saying that Antifa went to Germany to meet with ISIS and al Qaeda. Any violent ideological activist group are terrorists.
First , I'll start with your last point . Pres. Obama was the passive aggressive "race- baiter " beginning an entire segment of new violent and culturally negative race relations in America . Second ,your millionaire political dissidents , when the NFL , NBA , Hollywood celebs , and the most liberal Ivory Towers in America's education system incite race riots , You cannot begin to compare any of the legitimcy to MLK days .
"Your kneeling thing ".....is but rich ,entitled mental midgets in uniforms showing no respect to the system that bought there 200,000 dollar cars and 3 million dollar mansions and screaming " look at me I'm on camera ".
The BLM movement is but a movement alright , burning property , throwing bricks , killing cops , and running back to there campus' before the dorm doors lock . Soro's supported offspring enjoying the half class days .
Trump should focus on the inner city thuggery of liberal enclave, slums like NYC, LA , Baltimore , New Orleans ,San Fran, Ferguson , and stop the federal dollars to violent , and crime sanctioning -sanctuary cities ,
BLM crime would come to a halt . They would have to get a job .
The "right wing clubs " don't exist , don't burn down cities and don't destroy there own cultures with drugs and violence , and don't brag endlessly about killing cops being the right thing to do .
Don't try to romanticize or legitimize violence , hatred and thuggery to equal good cause it's beneath you and It's beneath the legacy of MLK..........:-]
Am I the only one who feels a little grimy after reading this post? Like I walked through a sprinkler full of pig poo fertilizer and now can't get rid of the smell?
Typical liberal response , no debate , just point and shoot .
Liberals are Egalitarian, with a live and let live attitude. More caring and ethical. More independent thinkers. They are not cursed with close narrow paranoid minds.
Right ........until they actually acquire a neighbor , a dog or children .
I don't get it with the dog reference. I do get you are saying libs make bad neighbors and bad parents but - bad dog owners also?
Now, now, just like with the White Identity Extremists - there are 'fine' people on 'both sides' according to tRump.
So a Muslim white identity extremist named Sayfullo Saipov committed a terrorist act And I bet some ppl will still found a way to blame Obama/Clinton!
Are white nationals, white supremacists, militias, neo-Nazis all white identity extremists?
Any person or group who commits acts of violence or terror in order to express these beliefs have moved from the realm of 'free speech' into unlawful activity. If they cite their beliefs of identity extremism as the cause of this violence...of course it is identity extremism.
Fortunately, none of these extremists speak for their race or religion. They speak only for themselves, their sick beliefs and of their misguided feelings of superiority of their belief. Terrorists are terrorists. They should all be treated as such in a civilized society.
