These genuine statistics belie the strident rhetoric around “foreign-born” terrorists! From the FBI to the DHS to state police US law enforcement failed to see the threat of white nationalism.  For2 decades, domestic counter-terrorism strategy has ignored the rising danger of far-right extremism.In this atmosphere of apparent indifference on the part of government officials and law enforcement, a virulent, and violent, far-right movement has grown and metastasized. White supremacists and other far-right extremists have killed far more people since 9/11 than any other category of domestic extremist.These statistics raise questions about the US counterterrorism strategy,which for has been focused on American and foreign-born jihadists, overshadowing right-wing extremism as a legitimate national-security threat. Read next week’s NY Times, cover story now.

Here is why from SMARTpeople who watc

"We're actually seeing all the same phenomena of what was happening with groups like ISIS, same tactics, but no one talks about it because it's far-right extremism," says the national-security strategist P."W. Singer, a senior fellow at the New America think tank. During the first year of the Trump administration, Singer and several other analysts met with a group of senior administration officials about building a counterterrorism strategy that encompassed a wider range of threats. "They only wanted to talk about Muslim extremism," he says. But even before the Trump administration, he says, "we willingly turned the other way on white supremacy because there were real political costs to talking about white supremacy."

BE careful of solutions..."To combat it, some officials have suggested prosecuting related crimes through expansion of the government's counterterrorism powers -- creating a special "domestic terrorism" statute, for instance, which currently doesn't exist"

Yeah, Right!!! Give the present fascist more power to kill folks hurling rocks!

a report released on Oct. 31by the Brennan Center for Justice at New York University Law School argues that the creation of such a statute could easily be abused to target "protesters and political dissidents instead of terrorists," and that law enforcement already has ample authority to prosecute domestic terrorism: "Congress must require that counterterrorism resource decisions be based on objective evaluations of the physical harm different groups pose to human life, rather than on political considerations that prioritize the safety of some communities over others."

The Truth is staring us in the face!

WHERE WAS LAW ENFORCEMENT "During the first year after Donald Trump's election, protests and riots erupted across the country, often involving men with criminal histories who, by definition, were on the law-enforcement radar. During the so-called Battle of Berkeley in March 2017, for instance, a far-right agitator named Kyle Chapman became a hero to the alt-right after he reportedly pummeled an anti-fascist counterprotester with a billy club. Chapman was a 41-year-old who had two previous felony convictions. He proceeded to travel around the country, engaging in violence at other protests, now under the online moniker Based Stickman -- a cheerful reference to the Berkeley attacks."

"The militant far right was enjoying a renaissance, thanks to the internet."

OMG... I have been writing about how this is a transformational era... that space that no one controls is where anarchy flourishes.

"The destruction of the distinction between truth and falsehood is the foundation of dictatorship."Don't let the disrupters meddle with YOU! Learn to distinguish DISINFORMATION from facts!

"If there's no truth, how do we discuss and make decisions that are rooted in fact?" said Rob Stutzman, a Republican operative based in California. "It's been abandoned. And it's something that the Republican base certainly isn't going to revolt on him on. But it is a huge fundamental problem of how to govern when there are no facts."

How Facebook Has Flattened Human Communication -- Member Feature Stories -- Medium Is it mere coincidence that four major new books look at identity, specifically at identity politics? Given the extent to which the last election exposed deep fissures in this country -- which have reverberated globally with significant implications -- and the way social media has often exacerbated those differences, these titles feel especially timely. Kwame Anthony Appiah's "The Lies That Bind" and Francis Fukuyama's "Identity" are reviewed by Anand Giridharadas; Greg Lukianoff and Jonathan Haidt's "The Coddling of the American Mind" and William Egginton's "The Splintering of the American Mind" are reviewed by Thomas

And the model for the mendacity, the disinformation that is going to end our democracy is A President Who Believes He Is Entitled to His Own Facts:Over the course of 21 months, President Trump has loudly and repeatedly refused to accept a number of agreed-upon facts, while insisting on the veracity of demonstrably false claims that happen to suit his political needs.

WORDS MATTER, and our people have been targeted for division.Our people have been put into an echo chamber of messages designed to incite violence.
