The FBI Makes a Bizarre Claim About Pro-Choice Terrorism
The bureau revamped its homegrown-terror efforts to include “people on either side” of the abortion debate. But there’s almost no evidence of pro-choice violence.
Yup: both sides. The FBI is going to have agents available to investigate the violence against Forced Birthers, and good lucking finding any.
The FBI is expanding its focus on domestic terrorism, and that includes pro-choice violence—even though such violence is so vanishingly rare, it’s all but nonexistent.
In testimony before the House Judiciary Committee on Wednesday, FBI Director Christopher Wray disclosed that the bureau has recently “changed our terminology as part of a broader reorganization of the way in which we categorize our domestic terrorism efforts.” It’s part of a much-heralded reinvigoration of the bureau’s domestic terrorism focus after a rising tide of mostly white-supremacist terrorism.
And this is where it goes off the rails (emphasis mine):
Among four broad categories of domestic terrorism that the FBI confronts, Wray said, is “abortion violent extremism.”
But Wray wasn’t only talking about the pro-life extremism that murders abortion providers in their churches, he hastened to add, but “people on either side of that issue who commit violence on behalf of different views on that topic.”
His questioner, Rep. Karen Bass (D-CA), was puzzled at Wray’s seeming equivalence: “People on either side of that issue don’t commit violence.” In fact, the FBI pointed The Daily Beast to just one episode of pro-choice-inspired terrorism—one that did not involve an actual act of violence, but rather a threat in an online comments section.
Never read the YouTube Comments.
OK, all joking aside, this must be yet another example of the underlings being a-feared to get the big orange baby’s knickers in a twist. This is pure political calculation: Wray knows that Prznint Horndawg needs to keep the fetus-fondling gawd-botherers in his back pocket and so come hell AND highwater, there will be a Pro-Choice terror team that will be sort of like the old Maytag Repairman commercials.
