Posted on 08/12/2019 8:49:36 PM PDT by Blogger
The FBI for the first time has identified fringe conspiracy theories as a domestic terrorist threat, according to a previously unpublicized document obtained by Yahoo News. (Read the document below.)
The FBI intelligence bulletin from the bureaus Phoenix field office, dated May 30, 2019, describes conspiracy theory-driven domestic extremists, as a growing threat, and notes that it is the first such report to do so. It lists a number of arrests, including some that havent been publicized, related to violent incidents motivated by fringe beliefs.
The document specifically mentions QAnon, a shadowy network that believes in a deep state conspiracy against President Trump, and Pizzagate, the theory that a pedophile ring including Clinton associates was being run out of the basement of a Washington, D.C., pizza restaurant (which didnt actually have a basement).
The FBI assesses these conspiracy theories very likely will emerge, spread, and evolve in the modern information marketplace, occasionally driving both groups and individual extremists to carry out criminal or violent acts, the document states. It also goes on to say the FBI believes conspiracy theory-driven extremists are likely to increase during the 2020 presidential election cycle. FBI designates Pizzagate and QAnon conspiracy-based theories as domestic threats. (Photo illustration: Yahoo News; photos: Michael E. Miller/The Washington Post via Getty Images, Matt Rourke/AP, AP)

I believe the FBI and the rest of their deep state pals are the terrorists, domestic enemies, traitors to the Constitution they took oath on.
Riiiight as the coup attempts and jail witness killings arrive:
1. Take away the guns
2. Make non-MSM people into criminals
Some people are extreme in their intelligence and construct theories that conspiracies may indeed exist, then they do research to prove the theory is true. Will they be considered criminals? Asking for a friend....a very smart friend...
Whatever one thinks of Q, I have seen no threat.
And pizza-gate is real.
But accusing ALL Trump voters of being white, racist, ready to drag a black man to his death, sick animals is A OK.
Weve become East Germany without the hot German chicks 🐣
Let me understand it;
The entity that burned down a church with 100 people inside
The entity that shot a baby-holding mommy through the head
Who framed up the Olympic Park Bombing hero
Who tried to overthrow a duly elected President
THEY want to say we’re criminals...?
Essential Russian For the Real American:
This combined with red flag laws ought to be swell.
Like that Epstein has dirt on famous people.
Now the New York Times is reporting this conspiracy theory.
Are false conspiracy theorists like Mika, Joe, The View gals, Democrat Presidential candidates et al considered patriots now?
Hmmm,was not the entire Trump/Russia thingie an hysterical web of conspiracy theories?
The Russki Collusion hoax pimped by the clowns at the DNC is at the top of the list, right?
From the article:
“The FBI intelligence bulletin from the bureaus Phoenix field office, dated May 30, 2019, describes conspiracy theory-driven domestic extremists, as a growing threat, and notes that it is the first such report to do so. It lists a number of arrests, including some that havent been publicized, related to violent incidents motivated by fringe beliefs.”
While this is worth noting, it seems like someone editorializing their own viewpoints, just a tiny bit.
“from the bureau’s Phoenix field office...”
Sounds like some of the “conspiracy theories” are a little too close to exposing the swamp for the comfort of the swamp.
The thought police have arrived.
hmmm- no mention of the 9/11 conspiracy nutjobs claiming our government attacked our nation’s buildings?
But to tell you any more would divulge sources and methods and must remain classified on a need to know basis.
