(Liberty Bell) – For months on end we’ve watched the Black Lives Matter crew, partnered up with the radical left-wingers in Antifa — not necessarily intentionally working together, but conveniently — tear down whole city blocks by lighting businesses on fire, looting them in the process, and carrying out violent acts as a means of “protesting’ inequality and racism.
And yet, despite all of the havoc, FBI Director Christopher Wray says that white supremacy is still the vast majority of the cases involving domestic terrorism in the United States.
Perhaps Wray isn’t really paying attention to the data here? Not saying white supremacy isn’t a dangerous thing. It is. But so is what BLM and Antifa are doing.
Wray made these controversial statements during a congressional hearing held on Thursday.
“Within the domestic terrorism bucket, the category as a whole, racially motivated violent extremism is, I think, the biggest bucket within that larger group. And within the racially motivated violent extremist bucket, people subscribing to some kind of white supremacist-type ideology is certainly the biggest chunk of that,” he said.
However, he declined to provide any specific numbers, saying, “I don’t have the numbers for you.”
The remarks about “white supremacist-type ideology” were later eagerly shared by members of the far-left media, including CNN’s Don Lemon, who two years ago claimed that that the “biggest terror threat in this country is white men.”
What propagandists like Lemon either downplayed or failed to mention altogether were the next set of remarks made by Wray.
“But let me also say that racially motivated violent extremists over recent years have been responsible for the most lethal activity in the U.S.,” he continued Thursday.
“Now this year, the lethal attacks we’ve had I think would all fit within the category of anti-government and anti-authority, which covers everything from anarchist violent extremists to militia types. We don’t really think in terms of left/right.”
Wray’s statement definitely caught the attention of conservatives across the country who thought what he said was weird, given the countless hours of video footage shown on television and shared across social media that clearly shows left-wingers harassing/attacking people, looting stores, and vandalizing property.
Some of that footage came out just this week.
“A 33-year-old man has been arrested after allegedly attacking a number of people at a Wednesday night rally held in support of President Donald Trump in Aliso Viejo,” Los Angeles news station KCBS reported Thursday.
One of the victims, 84-year-old Donna Snow, told KCBS that the suspect, a black man, “took his hand way back like he was going to punch me, and [he] hit me right across the face. Broke my earrings off.”
“Another person at the rally was knocked to the ground by the man while trying to help others, and a third victim was taken to a local hospital with a neck injury,” the station reported.
“According to the Orange County Sheriff’s Office, a retired police officer then got involved and pulled his gun as the man attempted to run from the scene.”

Why would Wray say that white supremacy is the biggest part of the domestic terrorism we face when clearly, right now, at this very moment, people are being assaulted by BLM and Antifa? Why isn’t more being done to shut down the violent protests and looting sessions these individuals carry out each and every day?
Is not the primary purpose behind BLM and Antifa to use violence and disruption to force the government to make the political changes they desire? That’s the very definition of terrorism. Why isn’t Wray taking a bolder stance against this?
Those are questions that need to be answered. The FBI certainly isn’t doing much to build confidence in the agency with behavior like this and it’s rather sordid recent past.
