Guardian: The FBI can’t investigate white extremism until it first investigates itself for…white extremism

Failing to hold the agency accountable will make a mockery of the Biden administration’s claims to combat the far right

Guardian: Following the fascist riot at the US Capitol, the FBI appears to be finally taking action against white supremacists who have infiltrated police departments across the country. It is odd it took this long – while most news outlets are reporting that the FBI identified this threat almost 15 years ago, the FBI has been aware of white supremacist infiltration of police departments since at least 1961.

It has also engaged in the work of white supremacy, spending the last century targeting Black leaders for surveillance. If the new Biden administration is to take seriously the threat of white supremacist infiltration of American institutions, the FBI needs to be held accountable for its past and present actions.

The FBI has a long history of fulfilling the function of white supremacy in the United States. While the Tulsa Massacre was ongoing, the FBI’s predecessor was busy investigating Marcus Garvey and his Universal Negro Improvement Association. The FBI’s first director, J Edgar Hoover, waged war on the Civil Rights Movement from its onset.

The war was ramped up in the age of Cointelpro, an FBI program designed to surveil, dismantle, and destroy any movement working to end racism or capitalist exploitation in the United States. The FBI occasionally investigated white supremacists during this era (1956 to 1971), but spent the vast majority of its resources fighting those committed to Black and Indigenous liberation.

And many of the bureau’s investigations of white supremacists were disingenuous; the FBI knew for a fact that the Birmingham Police Department had been infiltrated by the KKK, for example, but continued to feed the department information about civil rights activists. Read more…

  1. Also, don’t forget that the FBI sent the real perps of 9/11 back to Israel. In fact, they and CIA/Mossad were instrumental in the 9/11 coverup. Gordon Duff back in 2018 told us that, “Those arrested on 9/11, over 80 of them Israeli intelligence operatives, were released to Bernie Kerik, Rudy Giuliani’s police commissioner or to Israeli operatives using FBI identification. They were later flown out of the country under the guise of being members of the bin Laden family.” This is from a great post by Gordon that explains it all…
