Listen up close plebes, this is about YOU.
Department of Homeland Security issued a new “National Terrorism Advisory System Bulletin” or NTAS for the United States.
Past updated bulletins in more “normal” times typically mention not being aware of a specific or credible threats, or there’s often vague warnings of a potential “Iranian threat” – such as was the case last spring in the wake of the killing of Iranian IRGC General Qassem Soleimani.
The new DHS posting emphasized the “domestic threat” of “ideologically-motivated violent extremists” with objections to “the presidential transition”
So the Top. Men. are on it now. These thought criminals will be weeded out.
DHS believes the threat will “persist in the weeks following the successful Presidential Inauguration,” the bulletin says.
According to the DHS summary of the threat:
Information suggests that some ideologically-motivated violent extremists with objections to the exercise of governmental authority and the presidential transition, as well as other perceived grievances fueled by false narratives, could continue to mobilize to incite or commit violence.
On this note, the bulletin advises the following:
- We ask the public to report suspicious activity and threats of violence, including online activity, to local law enforcement, FBI Field Offices, or their local Fusion Center.
The DHS advisory further lists as motives fueling “Domestic Violent Extremists (DVEs)” the following:
“DVEs motivated by a range of issues, including anger over COVID-19 restrictions, the 2020 election results, and police use of force have plotted and on occasion carried out attacks against government facilities.”
In particular the bulletin references the 2019 shooting in El Paso, Texas that killed 23 people.
Given the very broad “motives” which are included under the category of “perceived grievances fueled by false narratives” – for example being angry over COVID-19 restrictions and lockdowns etc.. – this appears a recipe for alleging “potential terrorist” with a very broad brush.
