FBI insiders speak up, reveal Biden is ginning up overblown White supremacy threat as he calls WH summit

President Joe Biden declared during a forum Thursday that “white supremacy is the greatest terrorist threat to our homeland today,” but critics within the FBI reportedly disagree.

Speaking anonymously to The Washington Times, several current and former FBI agents said bluntly that the supposed threat of white supremacy has been grossly overblown by this administration.

“The demand for white supremacy vastly outstrips the supply of white supremacy. We have more people assigned to investigate white supremacists than we can actually find,” one anonymous agent, reportedly a male, said.

The facts don’t seem to matter, however, because the top honchos at the FBI “have already determined that white supremacy is a problem,” and thus centered the agency’s work on said problem, the agent added.

House Judiciary Committee ranking member Jim Jordan Jordan doesn’t appear to believe any of this is a coincidence. Speaking with the Times, he suggested that the president’s warped views are driving the agency’s policies.

“If you own a gun, display the flag and voted for Trump, the president’s going to call you an extremist, and it appears the FBI is going to use the numbers to satisfy that narrative that the president laid out,” he said.

Continuing his remarks to the Times, the anonymous FBI agent said that the agency often targets people based on their “First Amendment-protected activities.”

“We are sort of the lapdogs as the actual agents doing these sorts of investigations, trying to find a crime to fit otherwise First Amendment-protected activities. If they have a Gadsden flag and they own guns and they are mean at school board meetings, that’s probably a domestic terrorist,” he said.

What the agent said was no exaggeration. Just this week, congressional Republicans made public an FBI whistleblower complaint documenting how the agency investigated a veteran-led disaster organization, American Contingency, as a terrorist threat after its founder, veteran Mike Glover, had dared to speak out against the government.

The contents of the whistleblower complaint about the FBI’s investigation into American Contingency were outlined in a letter written this week to FBI Director Christopher Wray by Jordan.

“According to whistleblower information, in July 2020, an FBI employee in northern Virginia flagged American Contingency as a ‘domestic terrorist group’ because Glover ‘appears to be rallying individuals to ‘take action’ and ‘speaks about his distaste for how the government is handling the current situations in the US and encourages people to ‘join’ his cause,'” the letter reads.

“Notes made in the FBI’s e-Guardian incident reporting system … show how the FBI rifled through Glover’s life — obtaining his military records, his veteran’s disability rating, and even his monthly disability benefit.”

Yet the FBI publicly claims the opposite — that it doesn’t investigate people just because of their dissenting political views.

A spokesperson said to The Washington Times that the agency only focuses on those “who commit or intend to commit violence and criminal activity that constitutes a federal crime or poses a threat to national security.”

“The FBI aggressively investigates threats posed by domestic violent extremists. We do not investigate ideology, and we do not investigate particular cases based on the political views of the individuals involved. The FBI will continue to pursue threats or acts of violence, regardless of the underlying motivation or sociopolitical goal,” the spokesperson added.

But again, the evidence strongly suggests otherwise.

Case in point: Last month, the FBI’s “Domestic Terrorism Symbols Guide” was leaked to the public, and contents of the guide were shocking. It listed the Gadsden flag, the Betsy Ross flag, the Liberty Tree, and general revolutionary war imagery all as signs of potential “domestic terrorism.”

Look:

Responding to the guide, Reason magazine, a libertarian outlet, noted at the time that the political violence plaguing America — most of it coming from the left, FYI — didn’t justify such a politically biased list.

“True, the U.S. is suffering a wave of political violence from across the political spectrum. But instead of cooling tensions, government officials seem to see legitimate fears of riots or terrorism as opportunities to conflate those who actually intend harm with peaceful critics of government and authority,” the magazine noted.

“They throw a few bad actors in with people who don’t like being bossed around and try to smear everybody with guilt by association. They’ve taken this so far as to present symbols of this country’s founding as potential threats. When the FBI tells you that fans of images and ideas associated with the American Revolution are the bad guys, take them at their word. The feds are telling us something very revealing about themselves.”

Indeed …
