Homegrown terrorists worry the FBI most

FBI Director Christopher Wray has said the FBI considers the most pressing domestic terrorism threats to be homegrown violent extremists radicalized by Islamic State and other radical Islamist groups, and lone-wolf attackers who aren’t connected to any other people or groups. Cultists, “sovereign citizens” who don’t believe government constraints apply to them and those motivated by racial hatred are a lesser but persistent concern, the FBI says.

    The same FBI that bought the Russian dossier?

    • Admit reality. Islamic theology incites random Muslims to commit violence in the name of Islam.

      Quran (2:191-193) – “And kill them wherever you find them”.

      Islam needs to be treated as an organized criminal organization.

      Use USA RICO laws to start an Islamic reformation.

    If they were really that concerned about home grown radicals they would be going after most of the teachers and professors.

    At least he has the balls to identify by name homegrown violent extremists radicalized by Islamic State and put them first on the list. How many potentially violent “sovereign citizens”are there in the US; seven, eight?

      A few violent sovereign types have planned bomb attacks before. The FBI still blaims them for mcvay.

    The Toronto Police Service’s task force for Countering Violent Extremism will tell you the real threat are alt-right neo-nazis!

    Heaven help us after the first truck or bomb attack.

    Sorry – but I don’t consider the Tsarnaev brothers to be “homegrown” terrorists. They were immigrants who had been in the country for less than a decade and decided to sh*t all over the country that welcomed them. They were steeped in Islamic hatred and ideology long before they moved to the USA. Omar Mateen, however, I would consider “home grown” as he was born in the USA, though of Afghan immigrant parents.

    They don’t have the slightest clue, do they?
