“In fact, there have been more arrests and deaths in the United States caused by domestic terrorists than international terrorists in recent years,” the head of the FBI’s counterterrorism division, Assistant Director Michael McGarrity, told a House panel Wednesday.
He warned that hatred and extremist ideology are increasingly being spread online, and “that mobilization to violence is much quicker” than it used to be. McGarrity emphasized that “domestic terrorism” – often rooted in racially-motivated extremism, anti-government extremism or environmental extremism – is different than “homegrown” terrorism, which is inspired by international terrorist groups like ISIS and Al Qaeda."
Here’s the key piece of what he said. If you’re online and stumble across some place that is spreading hate and potential violence, report it. We Americans should not stand for terrorists in our midst regardless of what hate they’re spreading or what violence comes from it.
The police can’t monitor everyone but citizens certainly can help when they see actual threats.
