White supremacist terrorism is the number one domestic terrorist threat in America. The FBI has recorded about 100 domestic terrorism arrests in 2019, most of them involving ties to white supremacy ties. The FBI reported 7,175 hate crimes in 2017—a 17% jump from 2016. 1/
The FBI for the first time has identified fringe conspiracy theories as a domestic terrorist threat, citing QAnon, which says there is an active deep state conspiracy trying to take down President Trump. We see QAnon signs and shirts at Trump rallys now. 2/
The FBI document, which was unpublicized, but discovered by Yahoo News just this week said conspiracy theories will emerge, spread, & evolve, "occasionally driving both groups & individual extremists to carry out criminal or violent acts." Remeber Pizzagate? 3/
FBI document says they believe conspiracy theory-driven extremists are likely to increase during the 2020 presidential election cycle. Trump promotes the Deep State conspiracy theory. He promoted the white Supremacist theory of Soros funding a caravan of invaders. 4/
While Trump was mainstreaming the white Supremacist conspiracy theory of Jews helping to bring in "invaders," immigrants & Middle Easterners, Robert Bowers shot & killed 11 Jews in a Pittsburgh synagogue. He wanted to punish Jews for helping bring in a caravan of immigrants. 5/
The number of hate groups in America rose to a record high – 1,020 – in 2018. It was the fourth straight year of hate group growth – a 30% increaseroughly coinciding with Trump’s campaign and presidency according to SPLC. Do you all see a pattern? A trend? 6/
Take the mainstreaming of white nationalism, racism and hate literally and seriously. Please. There are real consequences which affect all Americans, especially communities of color. Don't "both sides" this. Don't create false equivalences. Call it out. Confront it. Enough. 7/
I'll share thoughts on the alleged manifesto of the El Paso shooter if it's confirmed. If you're white, help people of color tackle this together. Be an ally in word & deeds. It affects all of us & our kids. In the meantime, love each other, help each other & be kind.
