I’m pretty sure they don’t mean Antifa/BLM thugs who burned, looted, and murdered their way through American cities last year.
We’re all familiar with the FBI’s Ten Most Wanted List and that bureau reps would frequently appear on television shows like Unsolved Mysteries seeking tips on kidnappings, serial killers, and bank robberies. Tips from the public are a foundational part of law enforcement, including at the federal level. Soliciting such tips regarding actual crimes like kidnapping, murder, and bank robbery is perfectly acceptable, even essential in solving complex cases.
However, soliciting the public to report their family and peers for possible future crimes and wrongthink is another thing altogether.

As we saw with the needless and embarrassing harassment and intimidation of the Alaska couple who attended the January 6th Trump rally but never entered the Capitol building and with the more recent Lego incident that has made them a laughingstock, the FBI has become hopelessly woke and not a little corrupt.
With the focus on “extremists” being defined as Trump supporters, Republicans, Libertarians, self-identified “patriots,” essentially anyone not toeing the woke commie line, the pdf is a bit alarming.
Though most of it seems to focus on actual terrorists (those traveling or coordinating activity with overseas terrorists like ISIS), some of the criteria for suspicious, reportable behavior are open to much broader interpretation. For example, one is “Conducting research for target or tactic selection (e.g., acquiring maps, blueprints, schematics, technical capabilities, planning and logistics information)” . . . like a “fully constructed” Lego set of the Capitol building (that turned out to be in a closet, not only unassembled but still in the box)?
Also these: “Outbursts or behavior, including violent behavior, or advocacy that results in exclusion or rejection by family or community,” and “Condemning behavior of family and peers based on violent extremist doctrine (e.g., denouncing lifestyle choices such as clothing, music, religious practices).” Considering that most progressives proudly state that they have rejected their spouses, parents (or, in some cases, children) for being conservative or having voted for Trump or any Republican, this is an alarming thing to include in reporting the “suspicious behaviors” of potential violent extremists to the FBI.
Much of the material contained in the booklet pretty much defines Antifa/BLM. Still, I’m pretty sure reporting them would be a waste of time since the FBI doesn’t seem very interested in their actually criminal, actually violent, actually anti-government, actually extremist behavior.
I’m pretty sure they don’t mean Antifa/BLM thugs who burned, looted, and murdered their way through American cities last year (and are still doing so). These radical violent extremists literally target federal buildings. The FBI is nowhere to be found.
Footage shows how large the flames were at the #antifa arson attack overnight on the Portland @ICEgov facility. Antifa barricaded people inside by blocking the front door and gate, prompting federal officers to rush out from the far back. pic.twitter.com/EN5I8o9LBp

Portland: Pleas from the police for calm were ignored by #antifa. They called for another day of rioting. Antifa marched to the boarded-up police union & set it on fire again. This follows arson attacks in past week on local @icegov & a police station. pic.twitter.com/Ylim8pgl2M

The FBI’s reputation is in tatters, so the responses to this bizarre tweet are unsurprising. Some are hilarious.
This is outrageous. The @FBI has a growing credibility problem and this type of sinister snitching is clearly unhelpful.

In both Cuba & China, they also ask children to spy on their parents…. https://t.co/ss9TKNEBlz

Literally every single point on this is met by the domestic terror enterprise ANTIFA.
Every one. And not just a little bit.

Summer of looting and destruction and none of these “peaceful protesters” rounded up. https://t.co/ATNbyXcfwN

Please tell the class what in the fuck are these and don't you dare say "peaceful protests". pic.twitter.com/XNSwrzYFo6

There’s a lot of politically extremist activity coming from Portland and Seattle. The suspects love to wear black.

Does that include people plotting Antifa and BLM "protests" where assault, arson, and looting will take place?
Or is this just a way to justify targeting people who don't appreciate Joe Biden's inflation?

#ATTENTION: Would all family members and peers of anyone who participated in Antifa/BLM riots during the past year of progressive violence, please turn them in to Biden's FBI? Thank you for your patriotism. #WhiteRage https://t.co/1mXlLalkoi pic.twitter.com/KgB9lRvMKU

No surprise that the Left wants to drive families apart. Just another step to drive people away from things that bring meaning like family and make them more reliant and dependent on government.

My nephew got a Lego set AND a Nerf gun for his birthday yesterday, who do I call? I'm literally shaking!
