When it comes to understanding the full picture of #domesticterrorism, Congress and the American people are faced with doing so with only scattered pieces of a much larger jigsaw puzzle.
March 2019,
“...we learned-from unpublished FBI data leaked to the press-that there were more arrests tied to #domesticterrorism than to international terrorism in 2017 and 2018.”

Thanks to @GregAbbott_TX
New Texas laws loosening gun restrictions officially went into effect today

axios.com/texas-gun-laws…
Texas has had 4 of the 10 deadliest mass (ahem #domesticterrorism) shootings in U.S. modern history.

🚨The laws @GovAbbott signed at the delight of the NRA will make it easier to carry firearms in several places, including schools and churches.
Reminder: he also sent out an anti-immigrant mailer the day before El Paso attack.

1) Odessa is the latest horror, and we're streaming the tweets. This is the FIFTH mass shooting we've captured. It's so common we are setting up a permanent watch.
2) @TRACterrorism is a longtime user of our system, first for tracking ISIS, and now #DomesticTerrorism.
@TRACterrorism 3) @RVAwonk has taken the lead on disinformation, but she also pays close attention to the violence, too.

THREAD- Domestic Terrorism has always been a big threat, and it’s a good thing that the media is finally using this language. Dealing with it will take all levels of government of civil society. /1 #domesticterrorism #domesticterrorist #domesticterrorismlaw
Terrorism is social and political activism using violence or credibly threatening it. It is designed to create mass fear, and often has massive financial and logistical support. /2 #terrorism #domesticterrorism
Due to the potential for damage and mass casualties, the tremendous resources terrorists often have, and the exorbitant costs to society, Terrorism is in fact different than crime. Municipalities can predict murders over the course of a fiscal year, they can't afford bombs. /3

The Free Press has identified Master Cpl. Patrik Mathews, 26, as the person behind the Winnipeg recruitment drive for the terrorist paramilitary organization The Base.

Mathews is an explosives expert. /1 winnipegfreepress.com/local/white-su…
His social media is largely bare - presumably the result of his pulling back from his socials once he joined The Base. /2
However, his social media still provides a look into the mindset through his page likes. They are almost entirely alt-right, cryptofascist, and meme culture.

He appears to have supported Bernier. /3

For this collection of white supremacists, VIOLENCE IS the ONLY possible STRATEGY to achieve their political ends.

The #DomesticTerrorism MASSACRE in El Paso ENERGIZED the growing “#accelerationist” bloc of the white power movement, which argues VIOLENCE is the only way to achieve its goal of creating a white, non-Jewish ethnostate.

What are they celebrating with radiant smiles, thumbs up and selfies? 34 dead in 2 states in a week--from mass shootings. 22 in El Paso. 9 in Dayton. 3 in Gilroy. In 2019, 62 killed in mass shootings. Hundreds wounded. As the Trumps beam and pose, 680 arrested in Mississippi...
...laborers at the Kochs chicken processing factories. Children are left in schools and in the streets without parents. Neighbors take them to gyms to await their fate while their parents are taking away, handcuffed. The Republicans are speaking of "Hispanic Invasion."
Is this the time to smile wide? But don't blame it all on the sociopaths in power. Anyone smiling wide in these photos from the official White House Flicker account (no copyright, use as you wish) flickr.com/photos/whiteho…

THREAD: here is some expansion on what I discussed on @MSNBC @KasieDC RE: what could be done yesterday to elevate our Federal #DomesticTerrorism prevention efforts, h/t to @tribelaw for the thread prompt and @SeamusHughes for his insight 1/
My former office, @DHSgov Ofc of Targeted Violence and Terrorism Prevention once had a budget of $22 mil now $2.7-3 mil and once 40 FTEs now 7-10 FTEs, the #Trump Admin actively atrophied the office w/ specific focus on #DomesticTerrorism prevention programming 2/
This systematic atrophy included the pulling back of announced grant funding for programs specific to #DomesticTerrorism (DT) prevention, grant award were pulled back from #LifeAfterHate bc the org was critical of #Trump for example (evidence in FOIA req) 3/

The #ElPasoShooting is another tragic example of domestic terrorism being fueled by white nationalist, who unfortunately are given cover by the words and deeds of this President.
.@realDonaldTrump has directly attacked African Americans and Latinos from the first moment he launched his campaign.
He rode down the escalator at Trump Tower and called Mexicans rapist and has repeatedly referred to what is happening at the border as an invasion, exact words used by white supremacist to justify their terrorists acts. #RootOutRacism

One who is so blind and gullible to actually believe that these shooters are #TrumpsTerrorists IS part of the problem. Wake tf up, open your eyes and look at the party of the left. That is what #DomesticTerrorism looks like.

1/ Stereotypes and image are formed for a reason. The movie Deliverance showed the horror of America's backlands. "Oh, it's just fiction": it's not. Twenty years later I lived in beautiful Blacksburg, VA, a university town in the middle of Appalachia:
2/ The USA, which had been the "land of the future", the "space exploration nation" became the land of the horrific backlands, always waiting for a chance to destroy Civilization. Is this true? No. But there is a reason for the stereotype.
3/ For the whole democratic world, now, the USA is the land of #RightWing #DomesticTerrorism. This is going to stick for a while. It may take a decade to change. The democratic world can't understand the authoritarian American #GunFetish.

@realDonaldTrump Mr. President, can you think of ANY reason the El Paso shooter might have railed against an "invasion" of migrants in his manifesto?

Oh.
