It’s rare for the FBI to release documents about ongoing criminal matters on their “Vault” page, but today they did just that.

A document marked “DOMESTIC TERRORISM, SENSITIVE INVESTIGATIVE MATTER,” shows that they have put the pro-Donald Trump fraternity Proud Boys, started by Gavin McInnes, under surveillance as a terrorist organization.

Eight pages of the document from 2017-2018 were omitted and what is provided is entirely redacted, providing zero informational value. It appears the FBI has released this primarily to stigmatize the group, but also to induce panic and infighting within its ranks. It’s COINTELPRO.

Nobody in America other than the most extreme and delusional left-wing extremists believe the Proud Boys are a criminal organization, much less a terror group. The specific ideology of the Proud Boys is shared by a substantial portion of Americans. Their main crime appears to be little more than neutralizing heckler’s veto by defending themselves from “antifa” when Portland police have stand down orders. This investigation, and their decision to publicize it unsolicited, is nothing more than a political statement by those who are using the FBI as a globalist blunt force weapon to be used against an increasingly self-aware and disenchanted population.

Last month the influential libertarian think-tank the Cato Institute called on Congress to investigate whether the FBI is covertly influencing, surveilling or disrupting their political work. One of Cato’s research fellows, Patrick Eddington, wrote a batch of FOIA requests on behalf of various think-tanks, media entities and related organizations, only to receive a Glomar invocation for all of them. Glomar invocations are commonly understood as a “yes, but it’s none of your fuckin’ business!”

Cato and its libertarian ilk would never dare talk about the FBI’s egregious treatment of those it calls white nationalists lately, but the point stands: there’s no adult in the room at the Department of Justice. Federal agents penetrated Donald Trump’s campaign in 2016 using a warrant based on a lie they made up themselves so they could to entrap political players and got away with it scot free. Instead of the agents and coordinators of the conspiracy going to prison, their victims Manafort, Stone, Papadopoulous, et al did.

The FBI’s paranoid frenzy is intended to deter Americans from exercising their rights to free speech and protest. This is even true for the left, where the young and dynamic symbols of America’s gay, mocha colored, submissive neoliberal capitalist future the oligarchs have pre-selected as Democratic nominees (Kamala Harris, Corey Booker, Pete Buttigieg) are being soundly rejected by primary voters. Voters prefer elderly relics of the past, like the 80s Queens racist (Donald Trump) or 60s Brooklyn Marxist (Bernie Sanders) – few have much hope in America’s future. The prestige and money-making potential of a system federal agents have invested their whole lives into is a sinking ship.

The flailing desperation of these clowns has reduced them to now claiming voting for Bernie Sanders is a product of Russian mind control. This is a lie they use as a prelude to crack down on legitimate and genuine dissent, even though they know we know they are lying.

Our captured intelligence agencies have been busy trying to plant the seed of paranoia in our minds, whether through Russiagate, declaring white men terrorists, or this recent shenanigans with the Proud Boys. They have a plan for our future nobody wants. They will go to any extreme to make us eat their Chinese bat soup.

The richest irony of their psychological operation is that it’s working more on them than it is on us.

    The FBI is “merely” a wholly criminal subset of a larger entity, the wholly criminal federal government. As such, the FBI’s job is to protect/serve its criminal master at all times.

    The FBI, like the CIA and all other federal police/intelligence/surveillance/ agencies, is entirely unconstitutional. It [and them] should be all abolished, immediately. Neither it, nor them, can ever be reformed. Anybody who believes that they can be effectively reformed is “living in cloud cuckoo land”. Get rid of all of these wholly criminal federal agencies, the sooner the better.

  5. This just further proves that the FBI is not a law enforcement agency, but instead a domestic intelligence agency. That is what is was from the time that Hoover took it over.

    Thank you. Old fashion that I am, I used a dictionary and gave up.

    COINTELPRO The FBI began COINTELPRO—short for Counterintelligence Program—in 1956 to disrupt the activities of the Communist Party of the United States. In the 1960s, it was expanded to include a number of other domestic groups, such as the Ku Klux Klan, the Socialist Workers Party, and the Black Panther Party.

    though Wiki (the first hit) has a better description:
    COINTELPRO (syllabic abbreviation derived from COunter INTELligence PROgram) (1956–1971) was a series of covert and, at times, illegal projects conducted by the United States Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) aimed at surveilling, infiltrating, discrediting, and disrupting American political organizations.

    COINTELPRO: Destroying Lives One by One


    “Quite simply, disinformation is the foremost specialty of COINTELPRO. COINTELPRO is comprised of liars, deceivers, manipulators, plotting against anyone (whether groups or individuals) deemed a threat to the totaliatarian one-world government agenda of the powers-that-be.”

    “These COINTELPRO minions, these stooges and useful idiots, put up message boards, chat rooms and even large commercial websites where they peddle their conspiracy theories, where they gossip and argue among themselves about the real targets of the COINTELPRO libel/slander campaigns –almost invariably people they do not know. And most often, the very people who have been targeted (the good guys) are accused by the useful idiots of being COINTELPRO.”

    Groups who promote racial or religious hatred should be disbanded. Jews don’t want mobs breaking down their doors and lynching them. Each Jew should support the DOJ in their fight against religious or racial violence. Whites should be allowed to multiply and prosper, but they are crossing the line by advocating violence against Jews. Smearing the behavior of Jews is motivated by an underhand attempt to lynch them. It is violence in disguise. GO DOJ.

    The long march through the institutions has clearly been a resounding success at the FBI which now seems to be managed and staffed by hyperpartisan political leftists. The FBI has become a clear and present danger to the civil liberties of right of center political dissidents. As such, it’s time to break the agency into a million pieces but there’s no president or congressman willing to do that.

    @melpol

    Claiming a right to control speech and/or thought, because words and/or thoughts may lead to violence, is a hall mark of authoritarianism and totalitarianism.

  12. From their home page:

    We do not discriminate based upon race or sexual orientation/preference.

    Crikey what else can they do to deflect the FBI? Going after the Proud Boys looks like going after the pub quiz set from my computer. Maybe they know something I don’t but I doubt it.

    Start off then with closing down the synagogues.

  14. It gets even better, Eric. Now the Feds are indicting ‘Atomwaffen’ — you remember them, right? Soon enough, they’ll be claiming that there’s a massive white-supremacist terrorist movement in the country, and that they need sweeping new powers of surveillance, censorship and detention: https://archive.is/doBdB

    (For those of you who are unfamiliar with Atomwaffen, it is believed to be a fake ‘neo-nazi’ honeypot group set up by the Feds.)

    It seems to be the same tactics around the world, here’s a recent threat assessment from one of Australia’s Intelligence Agencies, which writes:

    Meanwhile, extreme right wing online forums such as The Base proliferate on the internet, and attract international memberships, including from Australians. These online forums share and promote extremist right wing ideologies, and encourage and justify acts of extreme violence.

    It’s interesting to note that out of all the White Supremecist organisations to be named in a threat assessment, the one he explicitly mentions in his report is the one that translates to Al Qaeida in Arabic.

    Striker has mentioned the group before: https://www.unz.com/estriker/scant-media-coverage-of-the-base-leadership-tells-you-everything-you-need-to-know/

    It’s just interesting that the premier threat in Australia, the “Neo-Nazis are emerging as one of Australia’s most challenging security threats, according to the country’s top intelligence chief” according to ABC news, is a suspected CIA honeypot.

    Just like Sailer’s recent piece on the UK government not releasing the report on child sexual assaults by Pakistani’s, it’s clear that the Australian Intelligence community is trying to muddy the water by implying ‘neo-nazis’ are a threat when, as far as I can tell, there have been no White Supremecist attacks here and only two foiled, compared to multiple successful Islamic attacks and multiple foiled. Why anyone would believe neo-nazis are a threat when looking at these two groups statistical success and likelyhood? Well you wouldn’t, that is unless you’re subject to counter-intelligence operations that have swayed your opinion.

    Strawman. This is what ADL and SPLC is implying to be the threat, but it is pure fantasy aside from the manufactured threats the state security organs can provide to fuel the hysteria-based witch hunts.

    Bigots were breaking down Jews doors not long ago in Europe. It is natural for Jews to fear that these events will be repeated. Today’s Jews fear bigoted SWAT teams. Human Nature is not always kind it has its dark side.
