Is the chance of a domestic terror attack unlikely? Will it be a thing of the past?
Most of the terrorist attacks in this country have mostly been from homegrown terrorists….and not all have been zealots…..more than our Fearless leader wants to admit have been Right wing nutcases…..sadly whether you believe it or not our President is not helping the situation………….
Politics quickly eclipsed horror after Robert Bowers allegedly gunned down 11 worshipers at a Pittsburgh synagogue in October. The shooting, the worst anti-Semitic attack in American history, almost immediately became intertwined with Donald Trump’s divisive presidency. While the president appropriately condemned a “wicked act of murder” and anti-Semitism in general, he also quickly veered toward his own domestic political agenda, telling reporters that the shooting was not related to permissive gun laws and, in fact, “if they had some kind of a protection inside the temple, maybe it could have been a very much different situation, but they didn’t. And he was able to do things that unfortunately he shouldn’t have been able to do.”
Progressive Jews in Pittsburgh expressed their anger at the president, circulating a petition asking him not to visit the city because he had failed to condemn white nationalism and had targeted minorities in general. Trump then, of course, tweeted against the “Fake News” media for how they were covering the story.
Trump’s Department Of Homeland Security has decided that since there are NO domestic terrorists they will shutdown the department that tries to isolate and stop any attacks on the Homeland……..
The Department of Homeland Security has disbanded a group of intelligence analysts who focused on domestic terrorism, The Daily Beast has learned. Numerous current and former DHS officials say they find the development concerning, as the threat of homegrown terrorism—including white supremacist terrorism—is growing.
In the wake of this move, officials said the number of analytic reports produced by DHS about domestic terrorism, including the threat from white supremacists, has dropped significantly. People in and close to the department said this has generated significant concern at headquarters.
“It’s especially problematic given the growth in right-wing extremism and domestic terrorism we are seeing in the U.S. and abroad,” one former intelligence official told The Daily Beast.
Maybe this was a duplication of effort…if so then it needs to go….but that is about the only reason I can think of right now……
I know I feel so much safer with Trump in the lead…(that is sarcasm)….how about you?
