As recently as June 28, 2015, National Public Radio broadcast a program having this title: “Home Grown Threat: FBI Tracks White Separatists, Domestic Extremists”.
I found this interesting because every time Donald Trump or Ted Cruz make a statement of trying to uncover the next bombing and mass murder by Muslim extremists, and we know one is coming, by having the police quietly track them and listen in on their planning, liberals fly into a rage at the nerve of anyone suggesting that our law enforcement agencies actually invade the privacy of Islamic groups. It amazes me how liberals can be so short-sighted and pretend that their own family members may not be the target of the next bombing of an airport or a shopping center by radical groups, and it amazes me that they are content with letting such violent planning proceed with no attempt to halt it by allowing the police to intervene beforehand.
Well, if white groups can be tracked and invaded, why not Muslim groups? After all, a white group may want to separate from the country and may demonstrate hate for all or a part of the rest of the nation, but they don’t claim to want the destruction of the country as a whole, which radical Islamists chant all the time is their goal. Plus they want death to Israel, and want the destruction of the very liberal nations of Europe to boot. They just hate everyone who is not a Muslim and want them dead. And is anyone pretending that the Ku Klux Klan wasn’t surveilled by the FBI?
White supremacists and Islamic groups are both full of hate, so why should one be protected from surveillance and not the other? Closely watching any type of violent group would protect many innocent lives. A report dated September 2012, detailed how law enforcement derailed radical eco-terrorist groups. I would never say that if we let one radical group practice their violence and hate that we need to let them all do so, but that seems to be the essence of what liberals believe, except that Muslim groups want total death to all non-believers, and other radical groups don’t. We may well be fighting for the survival of all of North America if Islamist groups get their hands on a nuclear weapon, so I see nothing wrong with trying to stop these radical religious groups just as we have other, more “traditional” groups. Our lives may depend on it.
