According to a recently released FBI document, “conspiracy theorists” are now being listed and considered as potential domestic terrorist threats in the United States. This is the first report to do so. Here's a link to the official document.
The document claims, “The FBI assesses these conspiracy theories very likely will emerge, spread, and evolve in the modern information marketplace, occasionally driving both groups and individual extremists to carry out criminal or violent acts.” It also goes on to say the FBI believes conspiracy theory-driven extremists are likely to increase during the 2020 presidential election.
The FBI document also admits that there are certainly “real cover-ups and conspiracies that are proven to be true,” but that these conspiracies are also a cause for emergent extremists and domestic terrorists. Nonetheless, they seemingly choose to group everyone who questions the government or believes in a conspiracy into the same category. So if you happen to find out that the government is lying, cheating, stealing, or murdering, and you believe it, you will be flagged and categorized as a potential domestic terrorist threat. I don’t know about you, but that doesn’t seem fair.
Though it’s true that there has certainly been a fair share (okay, maybe a lot) of wildly incorrect conspiracy theories out there, this report discriminates against even the most rational and proven conspiracies (such as Jeffrey Epstein’s “suicide”). It labels innocent civilians who are simply asking questions as “radical conspiracy theorists” - who act on their beliefs with violence.
The repercussions of this are massive, and, well...unconstitutional.
Whether or not you believe in conspiracy theories, let's make one thing clear: the constitution protects your right to believe or say anything you want (unless, of course, you actively threaten or call for violence against someone). But the moment the government takes action to suppress your ability to think and say what you want, they are moving against your constitutional rights - which puts us one step closer to totalitarianism.
Blood in the Water
This report is concerning, especially considering other recent developments. Take into consideration the conversation around “Red Flag Laws” that followed after the recent flood of mass shootings.
Red Flag Laws are essentially laws that allow for citizens, or the government to petition the temporary or indefinite removal of firearms from a person who may present a danger to others or themselves.
The issue with these kinds of laws are that the criteria is easily subject to change and interpretation… What constitutes a Red Flag? And who gets to decide?
Well, simply put - The criteria is put into the hands of the court or government. This criteria can change at any given time (without notice). So, considering the FBI now considers conspiracy theorists to be a potential “domestic terrorist threat,” anyone who questions the government may now also get their guns stripped away.
So not only will you lose your right to speech and thought… but also your right to bear arms.
Long Time in the Making...
It is no secret that the U.S. government and its associated agencies have long looked to discredit and subjugate “conspiracy theorists.” In fact, in 1967 the CIA released an official dispatch order that coined the term “conspiracy theorist” and also released initiatives that would aim to turn the general public against anyone who questioned the government. Here’s pictures of the official document:
However, if you have no interest in reading through the whole document, here are a few key methods that the CIA ordered to employ:
- Claim that it would be impossible for so many people to keep quiet about such a big conspiracy.
- Have people friendly to the CIA attack the claims, and point back to “official” reports
- Claim that eyewitness testimony is unreliable
- Accuse theorists of being wedded to and infatuated with their theories
- Accuse theorists of being politically motivated
Do any of these sound familiar to you? If you’ve been paying attention… they should. These are the exact arguments that have been widely used against conspiracy theorists for decades.
That being said, let’s be fair: these are not all invalid points. In many cases, there are good reasons to challenge those who push conspiracy theories… the issue, however, is that the government led an officially disclosed Psy Op (psychological operation) to make the American populace think this way about ALL “conspiracy theorists.”
Normally, I wouldn’t trust wikipedia to be the bastion of truth for this type of information, but do one google search on Operation Mockingbird and you’ll begin to understand how deeply this rabbit hole goes. Long story short, Mockingbird was an operation in the 50s for the CIA to take over and control the mass media. This means they would be capable of directly brainwashing the entire population and getting them to believe any narrative they desired… at a snap of their fingers. This includes their plans to discredit conspiracy theorists.
If you want more solidified proof… here’s a video.
Take a minute and consider this. Under this new FBI directive - Me sharing this information makes me a terrorist threat. Seriously… let that sink in.
Without a doubt, we are living in a frightening time of American history. Censorship is coming full force and our government is not hiding it. On top of that, notable companies such as Google, Youtube, Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter have also joined in on the censorship. Average citizens are now being threatened to be deplatformed, disarmed, and even arrested for exercising their constitutional rights and questioning official narratives.
As a people, I believe it’s time we face this issue head on and understand the threat we are being met with.
Even if you do not believe in “conspiracies theories”, I hope you see that this will directly impact you… or your loved one. We need to stop looking at our differences and focus on what we have in common. What rights we wish to preserve for ourselves and future generations. If we do not stand with those who are now being labeled as “domestic terrorists” (when most are average citizens questioning official narratives) one day we may all be labeled the same.
In fact, a famous quote comes to mind:
“First they came for the socialists, and I did not speak out… because I was not a socialist. Then they came for the trade unionists, and I did not speak out… because I was not a trade unionist. Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out… because I was not a Jew. Then they came for me… and there was no one left to speak for me.”
