In an effort to protect the folks that helped him win the presidency, Donald Trump is “refocusing” the FBI’s terror watch program to focus solely on Islamic terrorism. This means that the program will no longer work to combat violent white supremacists or even work to identify these individuals. Ring of Fire’s Farron Cousins discusses this.
Transcript of the above video:
Donald Trump is trying to remake the FBI’s terror watch program and refocus it to specifically and solely focus on people who are Muslims, anyone who is of the Islamic faith. Right now this program in the United States by the FBI is used to monitor white supremacist activity. They monitor the KKK, they monitor the neo-Nazis. They keep track of them, they keep tabs on them. They prevent any kind of attacks coming from those groups who are known to be filled with hate, filled with rage and usually packed with guns. According to Trump’s new order, what he wants to do to this program will officially remove white supremacists and neo-Nazis from this terrorist watch list. Make no mistake, these people, the KKK, neo-Nazis, the alt-right, whatever you want to call them, they are terrorists.
Anyone who believes that they are above everyone else simple because of the color of the skin they had when the popped out of the womb is a threat. Anyone who believes that you are a lesser person because of your sexual orientation, the color of your skin, the God that you worship, anyone who thinks that is a threat. We have seen attacks carried out by white supremacists over the years. In fact, we’ve had more of those in the United States than we have any kind of Islamic terrorist attack. This administration is so filled with hate towards Islam that they want to refocus all of the FBI’s efforts. America currently is not under attack by Islamic terrorism. We’re under attack from right-wing fundamentalists. We’re under attack from racists and bigots. We have seen them carry out atrocities, and yet Fox News, the Republican Party refuse to call these people terrorists. Remember how made they’d get when they said, “President Obama won’t use the term Islamic terrorism,” even though he used it all the frigging time?
They won’t call out their own, they won’t denounce their own. They won’t mention that a guy who goes out and shoots six people was in love with Donald Trump. They don’t tell you about that. Everybody else does. It’s easily verifiable, it’s all over credible news sources. Don’t tell that to Fox News and sure as hell don’t tell that to the Republican Party because as it turns out, those dangerous people, those KKK, those white supremacist skinhead Nazis, that’s actually the Republican base.
