FBI puts threat posed by racist extremists on par with ISIS

FBI Director Christopher Wray told House Judiciary Committee that racially motivated violent extremism has been elevated to a national threat priority for 2020 that ’puts it on the same footing as ISIS and homegrown violent extremists’ inspired by foreign groups. In 2019, FBI made 107 domestic terrorism arrests, on pace with the number of arrests it made for international terrorism.

Gotta make sure there is a strong boogie man here at home or the fear mongering won't work on the other half of the country. Gotta keep the establishment strong.

This seems much like the claim of radical extremists that were going to cause issues in Virginia at the 2A Rally. So much so they had to double down and find a couple who maybe, just might, possibly, have been thinking about, causing some minor issues. Yet they're wasn't even any littering.
