How the FBI Downplays Leftist Terror Activity

The investigation into the 2019 Dayton, Ohio mass shooting shows the Bureau cannot be trusted to identify left-wing violence.

ro-Antifa social media accounts are taking a victory lap this week following the announcement that the FBI has ruled out a political motive in the 2019 Dayton, Ohio mass murder of nine people, carried out by Antifa supporter Connor Betts. One of the victims was Betts’ sister.

Betts interacted with multiple Antifa-aligned accounts online, including the Socialist Rifle Association (SRA), a Marxist group whose members commonly provide armed support during Antifa actions. Betts himself attended Antifa protests while armed, and made statements calling for killing “every fascist” and urged his comrades to “arm, train, prepare” to oust Trump from office, according evidence unearthed by Andy Ngo, a journalist with a long history of covering Antifa violence. Betts can also be seen in images wearing Satanist and anarchist patches. Betts, dressed all in black and wearing a mask, opened fire on a crowd outside the “traditional western-themed bar” Ned Peppers, before being killed by police.

The FBI appears to have taken none of these known facts into account when it determined:

The evidence from the extensive investigation indicated the perpetrator, Connor Betts, was solely responsible for the injuries and deaths that were a result of his actions. He acted alone and was not directed by any organization or aligned to any specific ideological group.

The FBI instead emphasizes Betts’ apparent fascination with mass shootings of all types, even non-ideological ones, and highlights mental health issues, including obsessive compulsive disorder. It has nothing to say about the death of Betts’ sister either, or whether Betts was aware of his sister’s presence in the crowd.

If the FIB refuses to name it, they are covering for it. If they cover for it, they are a part of it. In many other instances they seem complicit.

I don’t remember it being covered much.

Another trick of FAKE news, many have an overly narrow definition of. To me FAKE mean the same as BIASED, which can include lying but also unequal coverage and especially the most common, slanted view of coverage. The story would have had much more network coverage if a right winger had done it,

As a recent example look at the relatively low coverage of the Waukesha massacre.

All we can hope for is that there are still patriotic moles within the FBEYE waiting for the clarion call.

Hard to forget the guy who shot the Republicans at the congressional baseball practice. To paraphrase his inquiry: Are those Democrats or Republicans? Still, the FBI saw no evidence of political partiality.

There is no law enforcement, only policy enforcement. The law is just one tool for that.

Yep. Lying by omission. It’s not just what Fake News reports. It what they don’t report.
