The FBI Just Put White Nationalists and Neo-Nazis on the Same Threat Level as ISIS

“Not only is the terror threat diverse, it’s unrelenting," said FBI chief Chris Wray.

The FBI has elevated racially-motivated violent extremism to a “national threat priority,” in yet another sign that the U.S. government has finally woken up to the threat posed by white nationalists and neo-Nazis at home and abroad.

In a hearing before the House Judiciary Committee on Wednesday, FBI Director Christopher Wray outlined several concrete steps the agency had taken to combat violent far-right extremists, explaining that the “national threat priority” designation puts those groups or individuals on the same footing as ISIS” in terms of the resources the FBI will devote to it.

“We’re particularly focused on domestic terrorism, especially racially or ethnically motivated violent extremists,” said Wray. “Not only is the terror threat diverse, it’s unrelenting.”

Wray’s announcement comes just two weeks after FBI agents arrested eight members of the violent neo-Nazi group The Base, three of whom were allegedly discussing firing into the crowd during the large pro-gun rally in Virginia last month. In recent months, the FBI also foiled two synagogue bombings, Wray said.

The FBI chief also said that he’d created a domestic terrorism and hate crimes fusion cell to “bring together the expertise of domestic terror folks and hate crimes folks.” “They’re working together to not just focus on the threats that have already happened but to look ahead around the corner to anticipate where else we need to be.”

Last September, DHS unveiled its new counterterrorism strategy that, for the first time, recognized white nationalism as a major threat. Congress has held well over a dozen hearings on the matter, and lawmakers have called on the State Department to designate international far-right networks as foreign terror organizations, and on DHS to produce threat assessmentsof those networks.

And according to Wray’s testimony last November, the FBI made 107 domestic terrorism arrests in fiscal year 2019 — around the same number of international terrorism arrests.

Making far-right extremism a national threat priority means the FBI can allocate more resources to the problem in terms of personnel, agents, and analysts, says Mark Concordia, FBI and New York State Counterterrorism instructor and associate professor of criminal justice at Roberts Wesleyan College.

“The decision would be based on intelligence analysis and obviously the potential increase in these types of attacks, whether the investigation shows they are a hate crime or racially motivated, and whether they can be tied to a larger organization or ideology rather than an individual hate crime” said Concordia.

Citing Justice Department sources, CBS reports that more federal arrests targeting neo-Nazi or white nationalists are coming down the pike, including people with ties to networks in Europe, Ukraine, and Russia.

He's going to start a thread on how evil the FBI is pretty soon.

They're both terrible, but the leftists won't criticize Isis only the white supremacists.

Will they still be allowed to vote for Trump in the next election?

If not, then Trump and his legal-weasel team will emote in their now well orchestrated, reality TV, grand drama-queen stylized, legalized barf submissions of executive privilege, separation of powers and absolute immunity in addition to quid pro quo-ing the shit out of the Upper Slobonian Grand Duchy with a well placed "perfect phone call".

Every single "leftist" on this Board have condemned and denounced ISIS as an evil and barbaric terrorist organization.

But there was a right winger called Bud Plug that passionately defended James Fields the Neo Nazi, when he killed Heather Heyer and injured several other demonstrators. All you right wingers were very silent when he argued in Fields' favour for over a year!!

Hey, I remember that Plugged Up guy!

Whatever happened to him?

He went from proffering any and every excuse, all quite weaselly, greasy and ferret-like, for what seemed like eternity all in an effort to paint a White Nationalist murder as a just an honest to God mistake.

Didn't think "much" "of him" then or now.

Instead of being a buttplug he's now the dreaded dutch oven, I believe.
But that's only a theory.

Its totally true, by the way.
Nobody on the left supports terrorism or ISIS yet we have multiple right wingers supporting white nationalist groups.

Yes, and the "Evidence" that he said that he had would prove him "to be right". I just pulled out some Alt Right Online Conspiracy Websites that were coming up with exactly the same arguments as Bud Plug. He insisted that he was a "Lawyer" and worked out the evidence on his own. Then he pulled up some doctored pictures from the websites to prove his point. It was hilarious. But he had to walk away when Fields' Defence team did not even contest his guilt, but were pleading for a shorter sentence based on his mental health problems!!

Why, did he mention this fact during the State of The Union or any other Press Conference recently??
The FBI is part of the justice department which is part of the executive branch.....

Rabidly proclaiming Field's innocence rectum, damn near killed him.

Where do you get this crap from. There isn't a liberal anywhere that would condone any kind of terrorism and Ive never seen it on this board. Home grown terrorism is a much bigger threat to the us than Isis, thats just a fact. I have however seen alot of you far rightys try to defend Trump and his base of white privileged bigots when they intact laws that are clearly raciest move polling booths, to rig elections, separate children from families who are desperate for a better life and allow border security to abuse their power. For the record Im very much a conservative and always will be but the conservatives on both sides on both sides of the border clearly have an agenda that nothing to do with whats good for the country or the average person.
