    The FBI is the same FBI of J.E.Hoover. The Federal Bureau of Intimidation. Anything that comes close to dissent in this empire is immediately labeled anti-American and is crushed. When this internal gestapo is not crushing dissent, it is creating self serving plots to serve the media and the masses to make them believe that the gestapo is needed.

    But would they ever monitor the police for misconduct? Ha. Ha ha ha.

    Let’s stop calling them protesters but rather constitutionally protected rights exercisers. Fear Boogeyman Instigators or FBI should try their luck at investigating bank fraud and money laundering. They would still be preying on the mentally infirm but at least their targets would be rich.

    Nailed and I couldn’t even think of something to ad;)
    Then again may be their just trying to keep everyone safe;) I guess those fusion centers are working really well. Is there one in this area?
    Donald B. I’m sure that’s what there really doing watching the cops watch the protestors so they don’t break any laws;)
    Thanks Kevin

    You want a euphemism for protesters?

    The MSM has had a way of taking benign or positive words and making them sound pejorative like entitlement, protester and even progressive so no I don’t want a euphemism but it might be better to enhance the term protester since the MSM seems to want to move it closer to militant, dissident or worse.

    Why are you paying taxes?
    Anybody who pays voluntary tax money to the government has blood on their hands, simple as that.

    The American public should be infuriated by the actions of the FBI and related entities.
    Furthermore, would you expect anything less from the FBI? Public inteligence is inteligence. Why not use it to their advantage and imprison more activists?

    Constitutionally protected activists. Protesting bad acts by Government.

    I will continue to use plainly understood language when writing stories.

    For example, protesters held a demonstration against a cop who killed an unarmed black man.

    No officer-involved shootings. No constitutionally protected rights exercisers. No suspect inadvertently dead. Just straightforward language, as it should be.

    The MSM has taken the term entitlement and made it a sneer word and they are doing the same with protester. Comment was directed at the propaganda machine not made as a serious request.
    The FBI agent and the Cop watch Fox and CNN I’m sure and when they say protesters they combine or intimate rioters and/or looters and then the quick trip to the one incident in an otherwise peaceful and rightful protest. Protect the rightful protesters and the shop owners but instead they tear gas everyone and chaos ensues. Next time out the term protester has a different meaning to the cop.

    Great picture but the fbi only spied/curtailed Black movements and left the kkk and other hate groups alone. Please try to remember or take the time to look up who the fbi was run by at the time and to tell the truth nothing has changed.
    As always thanks for your comment.
