FBI cites 2nd Amendment emblem as indicator of ‘Militia Violent Extremists’

=The FBI considers someone who displays a particular emblem representing the Second Amendment as a possible “Militia Violent Extremist,” according to a new report from Project Veritas.

The organization set up by James O’Keefe in 2010 as a nonprofit journalism enterprise to facilitate undercover reporting said it had obtained from a whistleblower an FBI document “which shows how the Bureau classifies American citizens it deems to be potential ‘Militia Violent Extremists.'”

“The FBI cites symbols, images, phrases, events, and individuals that agents should look out for when identifying alleged domestic terrorists,” the report explains about the document marked for “FBI Internal Use Only.”

“Of note, under the ‘Symbols’ section, is a prominent citation of the Second Amendment, where it explains that ‘MVEs justify their existence with the Second Amendment, due to the mention of a ‘well regulated Militia,’ as well as the right to bear arms,'” the report confirms.

And under the category, “Commonly Referenced Historical Imagery and Quotes,” the FBI lists Revolutionary War images like the Gadsden Flag and the Betsy Ross Flag. – READ MORE
