Timothy Langan, FBI Assistant Director for Counterterrorism, admitted in an astonishing admission that there is a double standard. He stated last week at a congressional hearing that the FBI doesn’t track violence committed by organizations like Antifa or Black Lives Matter.
In the hearing entitled, “Confronting Violent White Supremacy (Part VI: Examining the Biden administration’s Counterterrorism Strategy,” Langan stated that the Bureau does not consider Antifa to be an “organization,” and therefore, does not have specific information on their activities.

FBI Word Salad
Rep. Nancy Mace (R.SC) asked Langan questions about violence committed by groups such as Antifa or Black Lives Matter in the recent past and whether these activities can be considered domestic terrorist.
Langan stated that, “Well, we don’t identify groups but individuals’ actions. So if individuals are committing actions that would be in furtherance of anti-government or anarchist ideals then they would fall into that category.”
Mace asked Mace if Antifa could be classified as an anarchist organization in the domestic terrorist subcategory. All Langan could muster was that individuals who have associated with or identified as being part of Antifa would be classified as “anarchist.” However, in the past Langan has described the group as a “movement.”
Mace continued to inquire about the number of domestic terror acts and violence that Antifa committed during the last two years. Langan stated, “Since we don’t categorize Antifa, nor do we calculate or collate information regarding Antifa, that movement, we don’t have that. But we can provide you information on anarchist threats and cases in general.”

Okay for me, but not for you?
Protests against police erupted in almost every American city following the May 2020 death of George Floyd. Millions of dollars of damage was done to private companies and federal property was taken. Around 25 people were killed in protests and related incidents.
People were made to work remotely during the COVID-19 epidemic. Schools were closed, while children had to learn online. While social distancing laws and mask mandates became effective nationwide, there was no concern as thousands of people marched in unison on the streets.
Jennifer Nuzzo, an epidemiologist at Johns Hopkins said in a tweet, “In this moment the public health risks of not protesting to demand an end to systemic racism greatly exceed the harms of the virus.”
Ultimately, “autonomous zones” sprung up in many Democrat-run cities that became petri dishes for crime and disease.
Domestic terrorism is not something the FBI cares about if it is leftist, but made-up right-wing terror. https://t.co/axCOFEI6Q8

Judge Questions Protesters Treatment
There isn’t any definitive evidence that protesters were treated differently from another group, but a judge stated loudly what many right-leaning people have speculated: the Department of Justice was going to be harder on those who broke into Washington on Jan. 6, than the ones who were detained during last summer’s riots.
On Friday, U.S. District Court Judge Trevor McFadden, during the sentencing of a woman who entered the capitol on Jan. 6 with others stated, “I think the U.S. attorney would have more credibility if it was even-handed in its concern about riots and mobs in this city.”
Patriots proved me wrong as a Leftist by showing me facts, logic, and respect. Leftists threatened violence when I declared my desire to become a Patriot. This confirmed my decision.

Although McFadden did say that the actions of Danielle Doyle were not that different than those of last summer, he added that Doyle’s behavior was “inexcusable.” While the Associated Press reports that claims of being treated differently were debunked by court records, it then says that there were in fact, some defendants who received “lenient deals.”
