FBI Backtracks On Leaked Memo Targeting Christians
The “Federal Bureau of Incompetence” just got caught with its pants down again.
Let’s take a quick look at some of their recent escapades, but keep in mind this is by no means all of them.
Mass shooters, or domestic terrorists don’t seem to grab their full attention since they were warned or tipped off about them on numerous occasions.
For instance, the 2009 Fort Hood Shooter, the Boston Marathon bombing in 2013, the Pulse nightclub shooting in 2016, and the 2018 Parkland School shooter. Don’t forget we also learned after 9/11 that two of the terrorists actually lived with an FBI informant.
Sexual misconduct is also excusable.
In 1996, the FBI was notified that Jeffery Epstein was abusing underage girls and that Ghislaine Maxwell was his accomplice. In 2006, Epstein pleaded guilty to state sex trafficking and received a slab on the wrist. Conveniently, the “Federal Bureau of Incompetence” never did a follow up on the allegations that Epstein was abusing girls not only across the country, but also worldwide.
Another horrible example of incompetence came in 2015, when the agency was informed that Larry Nassar was sexually assaulting Olympic gymnastics. In this case not only did they not respond, but they also failed to notify state authorities and ultimately lied.
A Justice Department Inspector General stated:
“FBI agents disregarded allegations by Olympic gymnasts that they were sexually assaulted by former national team doctor Larry Nassar and later made false statements to cover their mistakes.”
Incompetence is bad enough, now let’s add political bias. This is the clown show that found nothing wrong with the fact that Hillary Clinton had a private server, top secret documents/emails and (literally) smashed phones.
They found Seth Rich’s murder to be a robbery when nothing was taken and in 2016, Kevin Clinesmith, an FBI lawyer, was clearly involved in the Trump/Russian collusion investigation when it was discovered that he sent several anti-Trump texts to fellow FBI employees in 2016 that said, “viva la resistance.”
Can anyone forget slime ball extraordinaire Peter Strzok and his harlot girlfriend Lisa (“turn the”) Page? While they were assigned to the delusional Trump/Russian collusion scam, Page texted Strzok :
“Trump’s not ever going to become President, right?”
“Right, No He’s not, We’ll stop it.”
When you’re incompetent and politically motivated, you must attempt to look competent. So while the bureau ignored important cases that would damage the woke agenda, it instead harassed the innocent to make headlines.
As an agency it ignored and classified BLM riots as mostly peaceful, while buildings burned and businesses and lives were gutted. Yet, when Bubba Wallace, a NASCAR driver couldn’t differentiate a garage door pulldown from a supposed noose, two dozen agents were sent to investigate.
When parents, sick and tired of having their children’s minds corrupted by leftist “groomers,” had the audacity to raise their voices in protest at school board meetings, they were essentially viewed as domestic terrorists.
This week the bureau of incompetence was in the news again. For making a huge fentanyl bust or capturing a serial killer? Nope.
A federal whistleblower and former FBI agent named Kyle Seraphin, obtained a document from the Richmond Virginia field office. In that document the agency warned that “Radical Traditionalist Catholics,” (RTC’s) pose an extremist threat.
The document is titled, (Get Ready):
“Interest of Radically or Ethically Motivated Violent Extremists in Radical Traditionalist Catholic Ideology Almost Certainly Presents New Mitigation Opportunities.”
The document attempts to connect these so-called Radical Traditionalist Catholics (RTC’s) to Racially or Ethnically Motivated Radical Extremists (RMVE’s). The document describes the connection as a “growing overlap” between the groups.
Now in order to target a group of Catholics or even refer to them as “radical” the agency would have to have good reason right?
While the document concedes that the RTC’s are a small minority of the church, it states that the group supports:
“anti-Semitic, anti-immigrant, anti-LGBT, and white supremacy” beliefs and prefers to attend “traditional Latin mass.”
The document also names the Catholic Apologetics International, located in Pennsylvania and the Slaves of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, in New Hampshire as being described as hate groups by the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC).
Upon learning about the memo the FBI released this statement:
“While our standard practice is to not comment on specific intelligence products, this particular field office product, disseminated only within the FBI, regarding racially or ethnically motivated violent extremism does not meet the exacting standards of the FBI. Upon learning of the document, FBI Headquarters quickly began taking action to remove the document from FBI systems and conduct a review of the basis for the document.”
“The FBI is committed to sound analytic tradecraft and to investigating and preventing acts of violence and other crimes while upholding the constitutional rights of all Americans and will never conduct investigative activities or open an investigation based solely on First Amendment protected activity.”
Notice that no crimes are mentioned. Only that certain branches of the Catholic Church held beliefs that the SPLC, an organization that has had its own internal struggles with claims of racism and sexist incidents, believes to be offensive.
Opinions are not crimes and it’s disheartening that the FBI would even take the time to research a religious group based solely on their beliefs.
Disheartening yes, Surprising no.
