FBI Watched Activist Groups

In typical wacko double-speak, the New York Times, today, glossed over the FBI’s efforts to do surveillance of domestic terrorists.

Note the language in the article:

Counterterrorism agents at the Federal Bureau of Investigation have conducted numerous surveillance and intelligence-gathering operations that involved, at least indirectly, groups active in causes as diverse as the environment, animal cruelty and poverty relief, newly disclosed agency records show.

Such sweet words… “the environment”, “animal cruelty”, and “poverty relief”. But the true purposes here are much more sinister, and have deserved the scrutiny of law enforcement officials… thus, later in the article, we find out who they are really talking about:

“One F.B.I. document indicates that agents in Indianapolis planned to conduct surveillance as part of a "Vegan Community Project." Another document talks of the Catholic Workers group's "semi-communistic ideology." A third indicates the bureau's interest in determining the location of a protest over llama fur planned by People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals.”

And then more…

“"You look at these documents," Ms. Beeson said, "and you think, wow, we have really returned to the days of J. Edgar Hoover, when you see in F.B.I. files that they're talking about a group like the Catholic Workers league as having a communist ideology." The documents indicate that in some cases, the F.B.I. has used employees, interns and other confidential informants within groups like PETA and Greenpeace to develop leads on potential criminal activity and has downloaded material from the groups' Web sites, in addition to monitoring their protests. In the case of Greenpeace, which is known for highly publicized acts of civil disobedience like the boarding of cargo ships to unfurl protest banners, the files indicate that the F.B.I. investigated possible financial ties between its members and militant groups like the Earth Liberation Front and the Animal Liberation Front.

Most people never read past the headline of an article, or the first paragraph or two. You have to dig deeper to get a fuller picture.

The New York Times is known for it’s… faulty? … warped? … uh… let’s just call it “unreliable”, reporting these days. They are pushing a political agenda that seduces them far from telling the truth about any politically linked situation.

So we see language, calling Greenpeace as one working for the “environment”;

Calling PETA an organization working against “animal cruelty”; and

Calling the Catholic Workers league an organization working for “poverty relief”.

Look, these organizations are involved in much more than that. We have a right to be seriously alarmed by what their members are up to. Each of these groups engage in activities with the type of people that could be implicated in serious domestic terrorism. The Earth Liberation Front and the Animal Liberation Front are considered extremely dangerous domestic terror groups. I heard rumors of the FBI’s investigations of one of these groups almost 2 years ago, indicating that it might be involved in the planning and execution of terror plots.

I get tired of all the manipulation of the news, don’t you?

This is irresponsible journalism at its worst.

I hate it.

The New York Times and the ACLU are now so radical that they will do anything, say anything, breach any code of conduct, to try and bring down this government and our social institutions, to promote their extremist agendas. Even to the point of defending potential terrorists as they work through organizations to harm us all.

I am against extremists of any stripe. Today’s worst are from the far, far Left of the political spectrum. I have written about the danger of these terror groups before, and warned you that they are coming after your right to own a dog.

Communism has always been a cancer on society, and it has now metastasized over the years into a wide variety of wacko groups intent on doing us harm to promote their wacko and evil causes.
