Somewhere in the bowels of the FBI must be an office of acronym creation, and it must be working overtime. We have barely had time to assimilate the new DVE term (Domestic Violent Extremist for those of you playing along at home) and now we have Racially or Ethnically Motivated Violent Extremists (RMVE) and freshly minted, Radical Traditional Catholics (RTC’s).
The FBI either has some extremely lazy or incompetent analysts. Or far worse... People who have bought in to this kind of garbage. With a 36 year career in law enforcement behind me, when the SPLC initially showed up on the scene and started sending their "intelligence" bulletins out, it sounded like it might be a good thing. They very quickly showed their true colors, however, as what they were putting out didn't jive with reality and what we were actually seeing in the field. Their political agenda was painfully clear. Every chance I got to debunk the the SPLC with other cops or citizen groups, I took.
Keep up the good fight Sam! Thank you.
