The FBI set itself up for disaster Sunday by posting a tweet encouraging Americans “to learn how to spot” signs of extremism among their friends and family members and then turn in those same friends and family members afterward.
“Family members and peers are often best positioned to witness signs of mobilization to violence. Help prevent homegrown violent extremism. Visit go.usa.gov/x6mjf to learn how to spot suspicious behaviors and report them to the #FBI. #NatSec,” the federal agency tweeted.
The tweet provoked widespread, bipartisan backlash, mockery and insults, both from conservatives angry over the bureau’s uneven application of the law, and also from the true liberals who’ve always despised the security state.
Look at the tweet below:

The anger from the right stemmed from the glaring dichotomy between the Department of Justice’s obsession with the Jan. 6th riot at the U.S. Capitol and its utter lack of interest in the deadly Black Lives Matter and Antifa riots that occurred throughout all of last year (and are still ongoing in certain sectors of the country).
In fact, just last week the DOJ announced that they’re spending $6.1 million of taxpayer funds just to build a database of Jan. 6th evidence.
There’s no record of the department ever seeking out that sort of money to fund a database to compile all the evidence surrounding the months upon months of violent rioting by BLM and Antifa extremists.

Summer of looting and destruction and none of these “peaceful protesters” rounded up. https://t.co/ATNbyXcfwN

Does that include people plotting Antifa and BLM “protests” where assault, arson, and looting will take place?
Or is this just a way to justify targeting people who don’t appreciate Joe Biden’s inflation?

Over on the left, true liberals — the type who read Glenn Greenwald and have been railing against the security state for decades — lambasted the FBI for its “lengthy, disgusting and pathetic history.”
Family members and peers should get together for a BBQ, and discuss the lengthy, disgusting and pathetic history of the @FBI and its role in manufacturing conflict in order to justify its ridiculous revenue model, as it serves as merely an extension of the security state Empire. https://t.co/vvOcJPfK57

Meanwhile, establishment liberals — the type who worship House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and the suspected pedophiles at the Lincoln Project — rushed to thank the bureau for allegedly doing a good job.
Thank you for this good note. We all can watch out for each other

Nope. I just love to help the @FBI take down the terrorists. Some of y’all are really making it easy to spot. Thank you for that. Making my Country a safer place. No room for hate here. We voted it out. 😊

This unsubstantiated gratitude seems to define the leftist mindset. After all, the FBI has been responsible for a plethora of recent screw-ups and failures — some of them deadly.
Most notably, the FBI dropped the ball on the Parkland shooter by failing to follow up on credible tips, thus effectively allowing the shooter to kill 17 people.
The FBI also recently broke down the door of, handcuffed and questioned a couple in a case of mistaken identity pertaining to the Jan. 6th riot.
The FBI used the fraudulent Steele dossier that was paid for by Hillary Clinton to spy on then-GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump.
The FBI did nothing about Hunter Biden’s laptop, despite it reportedly containing copious amounts of evidence pertaining to his alleged crimes.
I want to report Hunter Biden lied on his gun application, then dumped his handgun in a dumpster next to a school. Go get em boys!

But the FBI did seize a “fully constructed U.S. Capitol Lego set” from a Jan. 6th rioter.
And yet the FBI still hasn’t determined who’d placed pipe bombs near the headquarters of the Democrat National Committee and the Republican National Committee.
My kids have LEGO’s. You should probaably come question them once you find the agents that placed pipe bombs around the Capital.
