Attorney General Dana Nessel, the Michigan State Police and FBI Joint Terrorism Task Force yesterday announced charges against two alleged members of a “white supremacist” Michigan militia, Justen Watkins and Alfred Gorman, for the crimes of Unlawful Posting a Message, Gang Membership and Using a Computer to Commit a Felony.

According to the affidavit, the two men traveled to a house in Dexter, Michigan in December 2019 that they mistakenly believed belonged to Daniel Harper, an anarcho-communist podcaster.

The men then posed for pictures outside the house, which belonged to a family not related to Harper, and then posted the images on Telegram with the caption “The Base sends greetings to Daniel Harper of the Antifa podcast “I Don’t Speak German.”

Both the FBI and MSP say that the two men were members of “The “Base,” which they characterize as a far-right militia group. According to the complaint, because The Base has “a logo, a leadership structure, and defined membership criteria,” Attorney General Nessel, a lesbian and gay activist, will be arbitrarily classifying it as a “gang” and prosecuting them as such.

The Base is widely speculated to be an elaborate FBI honeypot intended to entrap white men. Last summer it was revealed that its leader Rinaldo Nazarro is a former FBI analyst, ex-CIA operative and private intelligence contractor. The loosely associated group has yet to be linked with any act of terrorism.

In the case of Watkins and Gorman, neither of the men are accused of any conspiracy to hurt Harper or the family who lives in the house they photographed. The decision to charge the men is legally creative and politically selective, but could net them decades in prison if convicted.

Michigan, a swing state, has seen accelerated FBI and state police entrapment activity in the last few weeks against right-wing white men under Nessel. Joe Biden’s campaign has made combating “white supremacist terrorism” one of their keystone issues as the 2020 election approaches.

Going to a political rival’s home is a distasteful act, but it is primarily a tactic leftist groups have pioneered and have never faced criminal charges for.

Last year, journalist Andy Ngo had members of “Antifa” menacing his elderly mother outside of her home just months after receiving a vicious beating from them at a leftist rally. In 2018, Tucker Carlson had the Washington DC chapter of “Antifa” besiege his private residence, where they broke down his door with his wife and children inside. Carlson was later forced to move out of the property due to the intimidation. Neither local police or the FBI have ever shown interest in arresting the individuals responsible, although in Carlson’s case one of his harassers, Joseph Alcoff, is facing charges for a violent hate crime in an unrelated incident.

Reporting by National Justice and other media entities have registered a recent desperate surge by the FBI against individuals they believe may have right-wing beliefs — behavior that is confusing in light of months of non-stop murders and rioting by Black Lives Matter and anarchist groups that mostly go unpunished, the latest example featured in Philadelphia.

The desperation of FBI agents and legal ingenuity of prosecutors is due to pressure from Congress to unearth and prosecute right-wing white men. Despite spending enormous amounts of money surveilling and harassing libertarians, Trump-supporters and white nationalists, the FBI has struggled to find people engaging in serious criminal activity. This may be the reason for why they are four months late in delivering their “white supremacist domestic terrorist” report to House members Adam Schiff and Andre Carson.

Failing to meet the white terrorist quota politicians, donors and media have set puts the FBI in an existential bind, as Congress has the authority to control their bloated counter-terrorism budget, which costs the taxpayer billions of dollars every year.

Political headhunting by the FBI in recent years has drawn widespread condemnation and criticism from figures as diverse as Donald Trump, left-wing journalist Glenn Greenwald and Marxist publication The Jacobin.

  1. Some people’s reaction to stories like this is: so what, Striker, you’re not advocating any action to stop this. As if illegal and violent action will benefit the cause of the Right. In the present situation, it won’t.
    Hence Striker’s sensible support for lawful action.
    I think also that it is important to just record these stories. Future historians will doubtless find much material regarding the Anarcho-tyranny of the last years of American hegemony.
    Also, publication helps convince more people of the true nature of the Deep State.
    America’s collapse will be soon. Hyperviolence, if not insurrection and civil war are likely. Some of the perps of actions like these will die at the hands of aggrieved civilians. These Deep State minions don’t seem to realise that they are creating the conditions for vendetta.

    This is just another example of a Jewish lesbian Dana Nessel weaponizing the law against perceived enemies of the radical left and the Jewish people. What the hell is unlawful posting of a message? That sounds like something you’d get in the former Soviet Union, the mass murder and penal colony that her race created over the carcass of Tsarist Russia.

    No doubt shifty Jew Adam Shiff threatened the FBI will funding cuts if they didn’t start producing “white supremacist” scalps to be paraded by the kikenmedia.
