New Jersey’s Government Thinks that Imaginary White Supremacists are a Bigger Threat than ISIS

Published

on

The New York Post reported that New Jersey officials raised the threat level from white supremacists to the highest level possible in an annual threat assessment report released last week.

On the other hand, Islamic terror groups like ISIS are considered a low threat to New Jersey.

The report from last Friday shows that white supremacists are now deemed as a “high” threat for attacks, thus lumping them in with so-called homegrown violent extremists as the biggest dangers.

“The threat from white supremacist extremists increased from moderate to high in 2020 due to the number of threats, plots, and attacks conducted in 2019,” the report asserted.

In contrast, ISIS fell from moderate threat level to low level, effectively joining other Islamic terror groups such as Al Qaeda, Al-Shabaab and Boko Haram.

“ISIS continues to focus on establishing its worldwide presence, but the group has not conducted an attack in the United States,” the report stated.

However, it conceded that “ISIS’s inspiration of supporters” still makes “homegrown violent extremists a consistently high threat.”

“Homeland security and law enforcement professionals at all levels have taken notice of the rise in activity from white supremacist extremists,” commented Jared Maples, the director of New Jersey’s Homeland Security ( NJOHSP).

“New Jersey is committed to protecting the diversity of culture and faith that shapes our great State,” he said.

For that reason, the state of New Jersey “increased the threat posed by white supremacist extremists from moderate to high in 2020, joining homegrown violent extremists as the most persistent hostile actors in New Jersey.”

However, this threat level may be misplaced when looking at actual statistics.

A Twitter user The Occidental Jihadist pointed this out when comparing the death toll from Islamic terrorists during the period of 1993 to 2019:

“Death toll from #Whitesupremacy terrorists” since 1993: fewer than 400. Death toll from #Jihadis of #Islam: some 22,000. But sure, New Jersey–continue in denial.”

Free Speech Organization FIRE Defends Kansas State Student Jaden McNeil From a Politically Correct Lynch Mob, KSU Will Not Expel the Student

Published

on

After Kansas State University student Jaden McNeil made a Tweet in jest about George Floyd last week, he came under fire from all angles — athletes, the student body, and university administrators.

Given the tense climate of American political discourse in 2020, there was speculation that he was about to be expelled from the university.

Nevertheless, online activism from the likes of staunch right-winger Michelle Malkin helped create sufficient pushback against the lynch mobs that were descending on McNeil.

Now, McNeil has even more backup with free speech organization The Foundation for Individual Rights in Education (FIRE) coming to his defense.

FIRE sent KSU a resounding warning:

The Foundation for Individual Rights in Education is a non-partisan, non-profit organization dedicated to defending liberty, freedom of speech, due process, academic freedom, legal equality, and freedom of conscience on America’s college campuses.

FIRE appreciates that Kansas State University is one of the few institutions in the country whose policies earn a ‘green light’ rating from FIRE. We write today in response to the University’s statement that it is reviewing its “options” concerning KSU undergraduate Jaden McNeil’s statement on social media.

KSU made a suggestive tweet in response to McNeil’s original tweet about Floyd:

 

A message from President Richard Myers: The insensitive comments posted by one K-State student hurts our entire community. These divisive statements do not represent for the values of our university. We condemn racism and bigotry in all its forms.

We are launching an immediate review of the university’s options. Black Lives Matter at Kansas State University and we will continue to fight for social justice.

Although McNeil was forced to delete his Tweet about George Floyd last week, sites like Revolver still maintained a record of it.

McNeil tweeted jokingly, “Congratulations to George Floyd on being drug free for an entire month!”

FIRE’s letter served as a reminder to KSU that as a public university it is bound by the United States Constitution and is compelled to protect free speech per the First Amendment. Yes, even when it comes to offensive speech.

The letter added:

While McNeil’s tweets may be deeply offensive to many, they do not fall into a category of speech unprotected by the First Amendment, which strictly limits public universities like KSU from punishing protected expression.

The entire statement can be read on Michelle Malkin’s twitter feed:

 

The stakes are high in 2020, as free speech hangs in the balance thanks to relentless pressure from the PC Left and Big Tech.

If the Right loses this battle, all other rights —right to bear arms all the way to the freedom of association — will be ripped to shreds.

The good news is that KSU announced that it will not expel McNeil over his Tweet. But the fight is far from over.

Anyone who values American freedoms should stand in solidarity with McNeil.
