“Americans motivated by anti-government views and racist ideologies” will be the focus of a new Department of Justice position, John Carlin told a George Washington University crowd today.

The Associated Press reports:

The Justice Department is creating a new position to coordinate investigations into violent homegrown extremism, a department official said Wednesday.

Assistant Attorney General John Carlin, head of the department’s national security division, said that while the international terror threat occupies the public attention, federal officials remain just as concerned about the prospect of violence from Americans motivated by anti-government views and racist ideologies.

“We need to make sure we have the mechanisms in place so that we can continue to remain just as focused on the domestic terrorism threat while addressing the international terrorism threat,” Carlin said in a question-and-answer session after a George Washington University speech.

The new “Domestic Terrorism Council” will work with US attorneys nationwide “to identify trends that can be used to help shape a national strategy.”

The new bureaucracy, I mean Council, should not be confused with another new department created by Eric Holder: DOJ’s Domestic Terrorism Task Force which also focuses on “anti-government extremism.

At the time, Attorney General Eric Holder cited the KKK as if trying to make them relevant again, and he also pointed to “self-radicalized individuals via the Internet” and “plans by lone wolf-style actors” like the shootings at Fort Hood, Texas, and the Boston Marathon bombings to demonstrate the danger of homegrown extremism.

This latest move from the fear-mongering Department of Justice essentially enshrines homegrown paranoia about imagined enemies. It also serves to justify the further expansion of the military-industrial-surveillance complex into the lives of American citizens on American soil … especially dissenting ones.

The truth is that if the so-called Domestic Terrorism Council were truly interested in ending homegrown extremism, it would need to look no further than the role U.S. government agencies themselves have played in cultivating nearly every act of false flag domestic terror thus far reported.
