    Fresh off the presses folks, so who is telling me all the biggest national threats are from the BLM and Antifa?

    This stuff seems to have going on for some time but the rightwingers see this form of resistance as either ok,  or chooses to ignore it hoping that the rest of the country does not see it.

    Sorry for the headline misprint, I meant "Gov".

    Rightwinger, Trump's own FBI is acknowledging where this nation's extremist excesses are found. I certainly don't need to print in Braille and shove it up your bums, now do I?

    For the rest of us mere mortals, I take the assault from these groups quite seriously, we all should.

      I for one AM taking it very seriously.  I see it as a continuation of the violence that is taking place all over our country, and if we continue to ignore it and pretend that we don't need law enforcement it will only grow.  Right wing, Left wing - it makes no difference what labels we assign; if we don't get a handle on it we are in serious trouble.

        If the definition of terrorism is along the lines of "causing harm to people innocent of any wrongdoing" (intentional civilian casualties, in other words) then it isn't terrorism, for the governor is the one making orders they don't like.

        That term is grossly overused today.

      I take them all seriously but I see the left downplaying the violence from the left so, frankly,  I'll listen carefully to the comments of conservatives and moderates but those who never, ever, criticize left wing violence and make excuses for it at every turn are, in my mind, responsible for fueling it all. Whether it come from left or right.

        OK, but I see the Right downplaying violence from their side while the FBI says they are clearly most dangerous. Trump and Barr minimizes this daily. So, who is doing the most "downplaying"? The Rightwing extremists I see as the most dangerous and those that lean in its direction are the most guilty of denial, IMHO

          "So, who is doing the most "downplaying"

          Personally, I would have to say those accepting or promoting the hundreds of violent "protests" (actually riots) we have seen in the past year or so.  I can think of only one death from a dreaded "right winger" (the one that ran his car through a protest), but there have been more than a few deaths and many injuries in the riots, not to speak of the ruined lives as their life's work disappeared into the flames.

          And, of course, that doesn't count the "left wingers" that wire tapped the presidential candidates offices, that proclaimed him to be colluding with Putin to fix the election, cobbled up a worthless impeachment, has publicly stated they will change the foundation of the Constitution (stacking SCOTUS) if possible and is now attempting to pass a law allowing Congress to remove a President they consider "mentally unfit" without the need of an impeachment (read: of a different party dogma).  I could go on, but I think you get the picture.  These kinds of activities are "dangerous" beyond anything a few armed nuts might (or might not big_smile) accomplish.

          (Oh, there was one more death - in that occupation of a federal park building in Oregon - but it was the "right winger" that violated the law that died, so doesn't count.)

                  Bet if you went to a hundred years, and widened the definition of "right wing" to "anything not the rabid left" you would find even more.

                  As far as I'm concerned the discussion was about the last 2 or 3 years - the period where violence suddenly bloomed nationwide from fringe groups on both sides.

                  I asked Google about your list of names and viewed the Wikis on them.

                  Just for clarity . . . The topic was the danger from Right-wing militia and extremist groups. with the exception of one—who claimed to be part of a nation-wide Boogaloo Boys 'movement', none of your listed names claimed to be part of any such group.

                  One even said he had voted for Pres. Obama in 2008.

                  However, none of this is intended to deny or defend the danger of Right-wing extremists. Or any extremists.

                  Well, let's see.  Googling "Steven Carrillo", I see the following: "California prosecutors have filed 19 charges against a cop-hating Air Force sergeant in the ambush killing of a county sheriff’s deputy."  This sounds more like BLM than a "right winger", yes? 

                  https://www.foxnews.com/us/air-force-se … ys-killing

                  Patrick Cursius produces: "Lawyers for Patrick Crusius, the man accused of killing 23 people at an El Paso Walmart last year, said he was in a psychotic state when he was taken into custody minutes after the shooting and suffers from mental disabilities."  All psychotics are "right wing", yes?

                    Sure, based on your bias.

                    Federal prosecutors have linked Carrillo with the extremist, anti-government group called the Boogaloo movement and said that Carrillo chose the timing of his attacks to "take advantage of a time when this nation was mourning the killing of George Floyd." Inside the three vehicles Carrillo used, police found a boogaloo patch, ammunition, firearms, bombmaking equipment and three messages scrawled in blood: “I became unreasonable,” “Boog” and “Stop the duopoly.”

                    The group started in alt-right culture on the internet with the belief that there is an impending civil war, according to experts. The movement’s followers, some of whom call themselves “Boogaloo Bois,” are generally younger and more likely to turn to acts of violence than members of other militia-type groups.

                    All psychotics are "right wing", yes?


                    So, he said that. He also:

                    Used the internet to purchase a GP WASR-10 semiautomatic rifle and 1,000 rounds of hollow point ammunition.

                    Drove from his home in Allen, Texas, with the rifle and the ammunition to the East El Paso Walmart Supercenter store near Cielo Vista Mall, where he opened fire on hundreds of people.

                    Posted a document he wrote titled, “The Inconvenient Truth".

                    To quote Cred, " I see the Right downplaying violence from their side while the FBI says they are clearly most dangerous."

                    Yup.

    I agree with you Cred, I think the potential danger from all extremist and fanatical groups should be taken seriously. Liberals and Conservatives both have their fringe elements.

    The militia of your topic is/was(?) very dangerous—a bunch of idiot macho guys with guns that have watched too many Rambo and Seal Team movies.

    However, I think the tone of your comment trends to hyperbole. "Rightwinger Trump's own FBI"? Are you implying the FBI leadership is partisan?

    And, if you want to frame this as a national threat, how do the number and scale of "national" events by BLM/Antifa compare to the militia and Rightwing extremist groups? Instead of that old Let me count the ways . . ." thought, we could say Let me count the cities . . ."

      Wilderness was correct about his assessment that the problems comes from all sides.

      But....

      Trump said in the last debate that the threat was from left wing extremists, not from the Right.

      The FBI is not partisan which gives all the more credence to its assessment that radical Right wing groups pose the greater threat to national security.

      It is more than a matter of Numbers, it is about the ferocity of threats and attacks that I think is more important. The Leftist radicals never threaten to kidnap and kill a major public figure.

      Looking at the Right wing objectives and approach, I would consider them the more dangerous. Anyway, the FBI says so and that is good enough for me.

            That is probably a fair point. I bet the anti-Trump fanatics have an equal list of descriptors for claims by Trump supporters.

            To come back to the point of my comment, I don't think it was 'like pulling teeth' to get the FBI to make the statement it did about Right-wing extremist groups—as Cred's phrase implied.

            I would have to check to be sure, but I think the FBI has been saying this about those groups since McVeigh's time. And I have agreed with that assessment since McVeigh's time too.

          Funny GA, no one seems to have problems identifying "left wing" extremists that would include the Attorney General and Trump himself. And after all that "rot" I have had to suffer through listening  about "an out of control Left"  in Democrat controlled cities and such.

          This Wolverine Watchmen IS a rightwing oriented extremist group affiliated with the boogaloo bois and dedicated to the goal of violent insurrection, so who is kidding who here? I have read that McVey and his accomplice had associated with such an organization in Michigan many years ago

          Obviously, the FBI seems to know how to make distinctions between radical Right and left, these Wolverines can and has been categorized as "rightwing" from any number of sources except Brietbart, of course. If not, then you will have to prove your point. I will go with the FBI assessment. If the FBI can make the distinction, you and I can, as well.


          Let's  not try to amalgamate the distinctions that classically define Left verses Right oriented. And this group is a loathsome RIGHT wing outfit.

          My point about the FBI is that in spite of Trump's dismissal of the threats posed by the Right since he assumed office, even he could not muzzle the FBI in regards to the data it had gather regarding the Rightwing extremists as being far more menancing and dangerous than any challenges coming from the left. That is what makes the FBI reports all the more credible.

          While I often accuse Democrats as seeing the world through rose colored glasses, I accuse Republicans of actually putting them on others, instead. They will tell you that a "polecat" is just a large kitty  with white paint down its back. And you know what, there are people that will believe it.

            You must be arguing with yourself Cred, because I can't think of anything I said that contradicted what you just said. And I surely can't control or be held liable for what "no one" says. ;-)

            The only possible difference might be that I said they were dangerous because they were extremists and fanatics, not because they were "Right-wing." I didn't mean that to be taken as saying that they weren't a Right-wing group. My perception is that almost all of these 'militia-type' groups are and that Left-winger extremists and fanatics would not let the word "militia" anywhere near their names.

    So, those the same guys Trump called very good people, eh?

    "Two brothers who were charged Thursday in a plot to kidnap and kill Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer were identified as the identical twins photographed months earlier carrying long guns during a protest inside the state Capitol."

    The FBI arrested 13 people Thursday in the plot by members and associates of a right-wing militia group, Wolverine Watchmen, to identify the homes of law enforcement officers in order to target them and plan and train for an attack on the state Capitol where they would kidnap government officials, including Whitmer.

    Prosecutors also allege those indicted made credible threats of violence to instigate a civil war leading to societal collapse.

    In early 2020, the FBI learned through social media that a group was discussing a violent overthrow of certain government and law enforcement components, according to the criminal complaint obtained by Fox News. FOXNEWS



    On Thursday, hundreds of protesters — many of them carrying guns — descended on the Michigan Capitol to oppose Gov. Gretchen Whitmer's extension of the state's stay-at-home order by another two weeks, to May 15.

    "The Governor of Michigan should give a little, and put out the fire," Trump wrote. "These are very good people, but they are angry. They want their lives back again, safely! See them, talk to them, make a deal." Business Insider

    It's important to keep current on a story as it develops.  Doesn't seem to be what the left claimed it to be in the beginning.

    "The suspects charged in the plot to kidnap Michigan Democrat Gov. Gretchen Whitmer are anarchists who in a series of videos professed hatred for police and referred to President Donald Trump as a “tyrant,” reports say.

    U.S. attorneys have charged Adam Fox, Barry Croft, Ty Garbin, Kaleb Franks, Daniel Harris, and Brandon Caserta with conspiracy to commit kidnapping, the Detroit News reported on Thursday."

                Well, GA, the values are awfully similar:

                “He was afraid the government was going to take his guns,” the employee said. Those at the store were aware of Fox’s Second Amendment views and involvement with a group of armed men, which did not strike them as unusual for the area.

                "The plotters, according to an FBI affidavit, were motivated in part by their belief that state governments, including Michigan’s, were violating the U.S. Constitution by imposing restrictions to prevent the spread of the novel coronavirus — and they referred to Whitmer as a tyrant."

                Barry County Sheriff Dar Leaf said he met Null several years ago when Null came to his office to vent about the Black Lives Matter movement. Leaf said Null wanted to start his own cause: My Life Matters, which he would eventually turn into what he called the Michigan Liberty Militia.

                If it walks like a duck, quacks like a duck...

                I suppose you can disavow them based on whatever their life philosophy, but given their views on government, gun rights, and COVID restrictions, it certainly seems they share a lot of Right concerns.

                I will concede, however, if that you dig into their backgrounds, writing them off as right-wing kooks misses a valuable piece of their story, which is their poverty. In fact, a deeper look into their lives and their struggles reveals how those mired in poverty look for anything to cling to that will give meaning to their lives. Definitely, a more robust reporting of how this occurred and why is necessary and neither side has done much of that so far.

                It would appear that they did not target Whitmer because she was a Democrat as much as they targeted her for how they perceived she was impacting their lives.

                This begs the need for an examination for those in society for whom politics is largely irrelevant.

    There have been repeated calls by the Trump administration to designate antifa as a terrorist organization,[38] a move that academics, legal experts and others argue would both exceed the authority of the presidency and violate the First Amendment.[39][40][41] Several analyses, reports and studies concluded that antifa is not a domestic or major terrorism risk and ranked far-right extremism and white supremacy as the top risk.[31][42][43] A June 2020 study[44] of 893 terrorism incidents in the United States since 1994 found no murder that was specifically attributed to anti-fascists or antifa while 329 deaths were attributed to right-wing perpetrators.[31][45]

    So, Let's cut the BS and make things crystal clear, shall we?

    Rightwinger = Conservative squared

    Rightwing Extremist = Rghwinger squared

    You are all on the same wavelength, it is just that some of you are more brazen than others.

    After all, conservatives so comfortably link progressives to the unrest in major cities.
    So, two can play at that game.

    What is  Right wing extremism?

    Bigotry, intolerance, xenophobia, and rabid anti-government views. That has to be a great deal it.

    To try to separate these lone shooters from the larger organized philosophies is incorrect. If these lone shooters are insane, how is it that the direction of their insanity correlates so closely with the manifesto of right wing groups? The so called individual mad-dog shooter, is a part of, a brazen part of, right wing extremist philosophy.

    Th Wikipedia link to the El Paso shooter for example, his "mental illness" seems inconsistent with the ugly manifesto he penned regarding his objectives and fit well into every rightwing extremist's goals.

    To hide the true nature of the Whitmer incident is just another attempt at  misdirection from the advocates on the Right.

    This is just one example, there are more available upon request.

      It appears you are saying, ("To hide the true nature of the Whitmer incident "), the Michigan Militia/Wolvervines are not anarchists and their intended mission was not one of anarchy?

        This has been an interesting exchange from several people.  My take on it: "If you are not firmly entrenched well into the (beautiful, caring, wonderful, loving) left wing group  where I live then you are hereby relegated to the (ugly, hateful, murdering, uncaring) "right wingers".

        Do I hear the faint chants of "Divide Americans NOW!" coming closer and getting louder?

        Funny though, how anti-government anarchists representing both the left or right are looked upon differently, depending on which side you are looking at them from.

          "anti-government anarchists. . . " Isn't that redundant? Are there pro-government anarchists?

          Is it your view that the Portland anarchists were 'Left-winger' anarchists and the Wolverines are 'Right-winger' anarchists?

          If so, which is the primary label, and which is the secondary one?
