FBI Running Illegal Cointelpro against BLM, Smears and Hoaxes Paid for by Taxpayers

The FBI has long disrupted and discredited civil rights leaders. It should put its authorities to better use by holding officers accountable

VT: The FBI used to stick to right wing militias, where entire dustbowl towns lived on FBI informant payoffs during the 1980s.  Today, they are now part of the hoax brigade, feeding their smears into One America Network, the FBI’s private news organization.  Funny.

Guardian: Throughout its history, the Federal Bureau of Investigation has viewed Black activism as a potential national security threat. It has used its ample investigative powers not to suppress violence, but to inhibit the speech and association rights of Black activists. And its reaction to the protests following the police killings of Breonna Taylor and George Floyd shows little has changed.

In October 1919, a young J Edgar Hoover, director of the Bureau of Investigation’s general intelligence division, targeted “Black Moses” Marcus Garvey for investigation and harassment because of his alleged association with “radical elements” that were “agitating the Negro movement”. Hoover admitted Garvey had violated no federal laws. But the bureau, the precursor organization to the FBI, infiltrated Garvey’s Universal Negro Improvement Association with informant provocateurs and undercover agents who searched for years for any charge that could justify his deportation.

The FBI issues thousands of tweets a day and maintains a stable of writers, pundits, former ‘whistleblowers’ (they are always fakes) and ‘activists’…

The FBI used similar tactics to disrupt, discredit and neutralize leaders of the civil rights and anti-war movements of the 1960s. The FBI’s Cointelpro program targeting civil rights leaders like Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and Stokely Carmichael was specifically designed to “[p]revent the rise of a ‘messiah’ who could unify and electrify the militant black nationalist movement” rather than to prevent any violent acts they might perpetrate. The methods included informant-driven disinformation campaigns designed to spark conflict within the movement, discourage donors and supporters, and even break up marriages. Overt investigative activity was also used, as one stated goal of the Cointelpro program was to inspire fear among activists by convincing them that an FBI agent lurked behind every mailbox.  Read more…

  1. John

    You either stand against racism or for Zionist slavery.

    This is how it cooks down.

    If you can’t see that, I can’t help. Stop letting ‘them’ lead you around by the nose.

  2. True, John! I have many friends in my city, who were born in poverty during 1990s and grew up without father or mother. They had the choice which way to go, but they graduated from school, entered the University or college (you can study free) and got different high education. Nobody pushed them or supplied them with money. They are normal, good people, who have found their place under the sun.
