Dopey Rep. Elissa Slotkin Calls for Adding Right-Wing Groups That Do Not Exist to Federal Terror List
Rep. Elissa Slotkin (D-MI) wants more right-wing extremist groups to be added to the terror list as she is desperate to expand the federal police state, but there is a problem: She can’t seem to find any.
Slotkin asked Secretary of State Antony Blinken in a letter to add 13 right-wing groups as terrorist organizations last week. The former CIA analyst claims that she was “struck by the threat these white supremacist groups pose, the amount of contact they have with extremists in the U.S., the minimal intelligence and diplomatic reporting we have on these groups, and the relative lack of review taken by the U.S. Government.”
These groups include Atomwaffen Division Deutschland, Blood & Honour, Combat 18, Feuerkrieg Division, Nordic Resistance Movement, Generation Identity, Northern Order, Order of Nine Angles, National Action Group and the Sonnenkrieg Division.
Notably, at least four of these groups are already defunct. If these organizations were actually such a threat, Slotkin would probably be able to name them. Far-left special interest groups are trying to gloss over her embarrassing mistake.
“It was a great list — in 2018,” Matthew Feldman, director of the London-based Centre for Analysis of the Radical Right, said to BuzzFeed News. “Every one of [the listed groups] was active. Every one was dangerous.”
“The effort of Rep. Slotkin is commendable. Designations, underused in the European context, should help with countering the threat of violence from extreme right-wing organizations,” said Kacper Rekawek of the Counter Extremism Project. “However, this must be informed by a thorough analysis of the local far-right scenes which include a plethora of actors who often talk the talk, but do not walk the walk as far as violence is concerned.”
Big League Politics has reported on how Democrats and their media allies are pushing to bring the war on terror to the homeland, using the mostly-peaceful protest in and around the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6 as an excuse to take unprecedented new powers:
“The Anti-Defamation League (ADL) is using the January 6 Capitol siege to justify its belief that domestic terrorism is a significant threat which requires a “whole of society” mobilization—that is, a collusion of Big Tech with federal and state governments—against it.
Along with the release of its annual “Murder and Extremism in the U.S.” report, the ADL has asked the Biden administration to “convene a Preventing Domestic Terrorism Summit bringing together state, federal and private sector officials,” according to the Times of Israel, which disingenuously used a picture from the August 2017 Unite The Right rally in Charlottesville, VA, in their story, thus implicitly comparing out-of-line Trump supporters with white nationalists, neo-Nazis, and the so-called “alt-right.”
“On January 6, Americans watched as an insurrection fueled by violent conspiracy theories and white supremacy gripped the nation and attacked our democracy,” the ADL’s policy recommendations section of the report read. “This was a predictable act of political violence fueled by years of increasing extremism; the forces that led to the attack on our Capitol continue to pose a threat to American security and democracy.”
Their PROTECT Plan is an acronym of the following prescriptions:
- Prioritize “preventing and countering” domestic terrorism
- Resource according to the threat
- Oppose extremists in government service
- Take domestic terrorism prevention measures
- End the “complicity of social media” in facilitating extremism
- Create an “independent clearinghouse” of extremist content
- Target “foreign white supremacist terrorist groups”
The ADL is also calling for greater coordination between federal and state governments in identifying threats and greater accountability of social media companies like Facebook and Twitter.”
The leftist assault against the Bill of Rights and Constitution is being taken to new heights, thanks to deep state operatives like Slotkin.
