There was a hostage situation in Texas on the weekend. Everything was resolved favorably (no hostages harmed, suspect neutralized). But what was interesting was the press conference where the FBI explained who the suspect was, and what his motives were. Although they love to label conservative parents as “domestic terrorists”, they weren’t nearly as direct this time.
Here’s the story from Jerusalem Post:
Soon after the FBI freed four hostages held by a gunman for 11 hours at Congregation Beth Israel in Colleyville, Texas, on Saturday, Matthew Desarno, the special agent in charge of the FBI Dallas Field Office, made a truly baffling statement.
“We do believe from our engagement with this subject that he was singularly focused on one issue, and it was not specifically related to the Jewish community. But we are continuing to work to find [the] motive,” he said.
[…][T]he gunman entered Congregation Beth Israel on a Saturday morning, when Shabbat services are held.
FBI can’t figure out the motive.
And what was the objective of this mysterious hostage taker? Was he insurrectionisting for Trump? That’s what CNN will probably say.
But why would the gunman ask for the release of Aafia Siddiqui?
Siddiqui, nicknamed “Lady al-Qaeda,” was born in Pakistan and traveled to the US on a student visa in 1990. She received her PhD in neuroscience from Brandeis University…
[…]Siddiqui was arrested in Afghanistan for her part in plotting al-Qaeda terrorist attacks in the US, UK and Pakistan, shooting at US Army troops as they detained her…
So, just to refresh you, the FBI thinks that parents who disagree with having their daughters raped in a women’s bathroom by a man dressed in a skirt are “domestic terrorists”. But a guy who takes hostages in a synagogue to get an al-Qaeda plotter freed is not. And don’t you dare say that he is a Mus1im, either.
One of the organizations that has been advocating Siddiqui’s release in recent weeks is the Council on American-1slamic Relations (CA1R). In November, CA1R’s Texas chapter and MPower Change, a Mus1im activist group, hosted an online event titled “Injustice: Dr. Aafia and the 20-year legacy of America’s wars.”
I thought this was very interesting:
You might recognize that group “CA1R”, because they collaborated with the FBI to ensure proper sensitivity to the peaceful Mus1im community.
Judicial Watch explains:
Judicial Watch exclusively obtained droves of records back in 2013 documenting how, under Mueller’s leadership, the FBI purged all anti-terrorism training material deemed “offensive” to Mus1ims after secret meetings between 1slamic organizations and the FBI chief. Judicial Watch had to sue to get the records and published an in-depth report on the scandal in 2013 and a lengthier, updated follow-up in 2015.
As FBI director, Mueller bent over backwards to please radical 1slamist groups and caved into their demands. The agency eliminated the valuable anti-terrorism training material and curricula after Mueller met with various 1slamist organizations, including those with documented ties too terrorism. Among them were two organizations—1slamic Society of North America (ISNA) and Council on American 1slamic Relations (CA1R)—named by the U.S. government as unindicted co-conspirators in the 2007 Holy Land Foundation terrorist financing case.
So what is the FBI concerned about? Well, we’ve already seen that they are anxious to label concerned, involved parents as “domestic terrorists”. But here’s a former #2 at the FBI to explain their long-term plans:
Have you ever wondered what disgraced former deputy FBI directors do after trying to stage a coup and lying under oath? Apparently, they give talks about “protecting democracy” at top-rated institutions of higher learning. Indeed, this last Thursday the University of Chicago invited former deputy FBI director Andrew McCabe to join a panel of partisans to discuss the Jan 6 “insurrection.”
McCabe was fired as the deputy FBI director for leaking sensitive information about an investigation into the Clinton Foundation and then lying about it under oath. He also took part in spying on the Donald Trump campaign through a secret warrant granted by the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act court.
The dossier he used to obtain the surveillance warrant was funded by Hillary Clinton’s campaign and, in an ironic twist, was itself the product of Russian disinformation. McCabe and his allies in corporate media justified all sorts of similar illegal and undemocratic tactics to discredit and attempt to unseat President Trump.
Of course, neither the University of Chicago nor McCabe acknowledged the irony in him discussing the integrity of “democracy” in America on Thursday evening. In fact, what McCabe said at the University of Chicago event on Jan. 6, 2022 is even more shocking than his invitation to speak in the first place. Below are four of the most appalling assertions and policy proposals McCabe made at the public event.
Here are the 4 points:
- Conservatives Are in The Same Category As 1slamic Terrorists
- Parents at School Board Meetings Pose A ‘Threat To National Security’
- McCabe Wants More Surveillance of ‘Mainstream’ Conservatives
- McCabe Believes No One Is Above The Law (Except Himself)
Let’s take a look at #1, because if the FBI were not spying on you, then maybe they could prevent more Pakistan-backed 1slamic terrorist attacks on US soil:
McCabe likened conservatives to members of the 1slamic Caliphate: “I can tell you from my perspective of spending a lot of time focused on the radicalization of international terrorists and 1slamic extremist and extremists of all stripes… is that this group shares many of the same characteristics of those groups that we’ve seen radicalized along entirely different ideological lines,” he said.
McCabe went on to describe the rise of the 1slamic caliphate in Syria and how 1slamic extremists were radicalized across socioeconomic, educational, and racial lines, likening it to the “mass radicalization” of the political right across demographics. That’s right, according to McCabe a grandma who shares a Federalist article on Facebook and your uncle with a “Let’s Go Brandon” coffee mug are in the same category as a jihadist who killed 49 people at an Orlando nightclub.
We have elections in November. It may be our last chance to vote in competent leaders who focus on actual criminals and terrorists instead of pushing their own secular left dogma on taxpayers. The FBI we have now is not working properly. They don’t deserve salaries, benefits or pensions. They are not protecting the public who are paying their salaries.
