In another disturbing report regarding the FBI, we are learning that they have begun secretly monitoring the MAGA movement for domestic terrorism, worried that Trump supporters could start a civil war.
This was uncovered by Newsweek and our report comes from The Blaze:
The FBI reportedly is secretly targeting supporters of former President Donald Trump ahead of the 2024 election, according to a new report.
During a three-month investigation, Newsweek spoke to more than a dozen current or former government officials specializing in terrorism. The experts revealed that the FBI is covertly monitoring MAGA Republicans because the domestic intelligence agency suspects that Trump supporters are the greatest threat of violence – possibly even capable of starting a civil war.
The in-depth probe reportedly found that the FBI clandestinely created a new category of violent domestic extremists that it intends to target: Make America Great Again followers.
In October 2022, the Federal Bureau of Investigation created a new subcategory of domestic terrorists labeled AGAAVE – which stands for anti-government, anti-authority violent extremism. The new subcategory is a threat group that is not anarchists, a militia, or sovereign citizen groups.
“Domestic violent extremists who cite anti-government or anti-authority motivations for violence or criminal activity…”
The new classification is officially defined as “domestic violent extremists who cite anti-government or anti-authority motivations for violence or criminal activity not otherwise defined, such as individuals motivated by a desire to commit violence against those with a real or perceived association with a specific political party or faction of a specific political party.”
The outlet reported, “Government insiders acknowledged to Newsweek that although they are not named specifically, the AGAAVE-Other title applies to political violence associated with Trump supporters.”
“It was a subtle change, little noticed, but a gigantic departure for the Bureau,” according to Newsweek. “Trump and his army of supporters were acknowledged as a distinct category of domestic violent extremists, even as the FBI was saying publicly that political views were never part of its criteria to investigate or prevent domestic terrorism. Where the FBI sees threats is also plain from the way it categorizes them — a system which on the surface is designed to appear nonpartisan. This shifted subtly days after the events of January 6 when it comes to what the Bureau calls AGAAVE.”
The FBI said in a statement to Newsweek: “The threat posed by domestic violent extremists is persistent, evolving, and deadly. The FBI’s goal is to detect and stop terrorist attacks, and our focus is on potential criminal violations, violence, and threats of violence. Anti-government or anti-authority violent extremism is one category of domestic terrorism, as well as one of the FBI’s top threat priorities. We are committed to protecting the safety and constitutional rights of all Americans and will never open an investigation based solely on First Amendment protected activity, including a person’s political beliefs or affiliations.”
An anonymous senior intelligence official told Newsweek, “We’ve crossed the Rubicon. Trump’s army constitutes the greatest threat of violence domestically … politically … that’s the reality and the problem set. That’s what the FBI, as a law enforcement agency, has to deal with. But whether Trump and his supporters are a threat to national security, to the country, whether they represent a threat of civil war? That’s a trickier question. And that’s for the country to deal with, not the FBI.”
I don’t mind the FBI monitoring actual domestic terrorist organizations and those who commit violence across the country, like Antifa. But they probably don’t monitor Antifa. Instead they train their sights on the political mass of Trump supporters. Remember earlier this year when we found out they were targeting traditional Catholics? How about they just worry about the actual domestic terrorism groups, like Antifa, and stop targeting Americans who passionately participate in politics.
What’s ironic about this is that Trump appointed Christopher Wray to head the FBI. And now they are targeting him and his followers.
