US Police More Concerned About “Anti-Government” Domestic Extremists Than Al-Qaeda, Study Finds

“U.S. law enforcement agencies rank the threat of violence from anti-government  extremists higher than the threat from radicalized Muslims, according to a report released Thursday by the Triangle Center on Terrorism and Homeland Security (TCTHS).

The report, “Law Enforcement Assessment of the Violent Extremism Threat,” was based on survey research by Charles Kurzman, professor of sociology at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, and David Schanzer, director of TCTHS and associate professor of the practice at Duke University’s Sanford School of Public Policy.

The survey — conducted by the center with the Police Executive Research Forum — found that 74 percent of 382 law enforcement agencies rated anti-government extremism as one of the top three terrorist threats in their jurisdiction. By comparison, 39 percent listed extremism connected with Al Qaeda or like-minded terrorist organizations as a Top 3 terrorist threat.

Since September 11, 2001, the frightened and emotionally pliable American public has gullibly relinquished its civil liberties and free heritage in order to allow the U.S. government to wage unaccountable and unconstitutional war again Al-Qaeda and radical Islamic terrorism across the world.

Many of us have warned for years, that preemptively giving up freedoms to protect freedom could only make sense to a propagandized, ignorant public completely clueless of human history. We warned that any totalitarian apparatus implemented to fight an outside enemy, would ultimately be turned around and used upon the public domestically. We already know this is happening with the NSA’s bulk spying and data collection, and we are starting to see a proliferation of the meme that “domestic extremists are more dangerous than Al-Qaeda,” spreading from the mouths of a corrupt and paranoid political class.”

Perhaps if the police didn’t harbor such negative thoughts about the general public, there wouldn’t be as many citizens killed by police. The recent tally is up to 463 killed so far in 2015, or an average of 2.5 Americans killed by police every day.

Finally, I came across the following excerpt from a recently published National Journal article:

Senate Democrats are calling for Congress to shift its focus from solely jihadist-fueled terrorism and hold hearings on the threats from domestic groups in upcoming weeks. And the Department of Justice has already opened up a domestic-terrorism investigation into the Charleston church shooting.

The real enemy of the corrupt corporate state is none other than, “we the people.”

Finally paying attention are they? Have they realized that they have awoken the angry masses? And those masses are becoming a horde?
Why all of a sudden new security for the white house?
LOL
Of course the cops are going to view them as the biggest threat because they are the ones that are tasked with enforcing the police state and are afraid of running into one without back up.
For better or worse the three percent movement made it onto the radar with the Bundy ranch and are now going to be under increasing  scrutiny
These are dangerous and interesting times that we live in
Play safe…..

  1. And here it goes again! The scaremongering government and Mass elite controlled media brainwashing the sheep to be come more scared of the non exsistant home grown domestic terrorist. That is nothing more than a law abiding citizen that just wants the right to freedom and and to defend their civil liberties and spread the truth.. How it that more dangerous than the UK/USA funded terrorist groups!
    It will not belong until they start rounding us up as the sheep and brainwashed become more enslaved and indoctrinated!

    • Well said “The non exsistant home grown domestic terrorist. That is nothing more than a law abiding citizen that just wants the right to freedom and and to defend their civil liberties and spread the truth.. ” Because that is the absolute truth.

  3. Maybe — just maybe the police were talking about “Ferguson-style” protesters who are more “anti-police” than anti gov’t. But Washington will interpret this as a reason to push back against folks who cling to their bibles and guns.

  4. I think the biggest near term threat is not the government itself (though it will be later on) but government-orchestrated mob violence, similar to Kristallnacht. Tyranny — and that includes dictatorships and oligarchy — needs the support of at least one major segment of the population to hold down the rest, and it needs the masses to be angry.

    Many people trust what they see as a legitimate government implicitly, often enough that families turn against themselves during periods of revolution and other political upheavals.

    This can be stopped, but only preemptively. Encourage agreement to disagree, convince your family not to trust everything the corporate media and government say, and remind them constantly, that family comes first, no matter what.

    • “Mob violence”- As the esteemed Walter Zoomie once said ” My neighbors and I enjoy overlapping fields of fire….. And Kitties”

  5. Of course those in power and their hired muscle are more worried about the citizens then about AQ/ISIS. The ragheads might sneak a few people in or recruit a few lone wolves here to shoot up a school or a mall. But that’s not a threat to their grasp on power and would actually be used as an excuse to tighten the screws and take away even more of our freedom. So of course ‘we the people’ are the risk they fear. And rightfully so. And it’s about time ‘we the people’ did something about the parasites, sociopaths and criminals in charge and the schoolyard bully’s they employ to impose their tyranny.

    • About time for sure. Enough is enough and it is now time to start acting like Americans. Remember them? They didn’t take a lot of shit off of people , be they Govt. or not.
