9 Fierce Reactions to the FBI’s Dangerous New Targeting of 'Black Identity Extremists
https://www.alternet.org/news-amp-politi...extremists

From the article:
Quote:Despite the violence and death in Charlottesville in August, a growth in white supremacist groups tracked by both the Southern Poverty Law Center and the FBI, and the domestic terrorist attacks committed by white men like Dylann Roof, Stephen Paddock and Adam Lanza, the FBI has decided to target so-called “black identity extremists," a mysterious group the Bureau apparently believes is committing violent acts against police officers in retaliation for the well-documented pattern of cops killing often-unarmed African Americans. And government officials, activists and legal experts are rightly furious.

The FBI is under the jurisdiction of Jeff Sessions’ Justice Department. It’s likely that, just as Sessions has cooked up bogus reasons to upend civil rights and voting rights, disenfranchising African Americans across the country, the FBI’s new target is a politically motivated appeal to racists among Donald Trump’s base. The FBI has a long history of dedicating valuable resources to the surveilling of black activists and civil rights groups, including its secret wiretapping of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

...

Back to COINTELPRO, the surveillance of black activists has been the FBI's role, while the KKK and other white-power groups get less attention. It will likely be worst with Sessions as Attorney General.

Nothing to see here, move along. Rolleyes

Racism, the Sessions way. That old coot shoulda been fired long ago, but he speaks DT lingo. No protests allowed, you must cheer the prez...or else! The first time arrests are made for being Black Identity Extremists all hell will break loose among the left. We won't put up with it and you can bet it'll happen in a red state where rights are only for the white supremacists.
