But like...fair enough on the FBI--apparently there are a few isolated gangs that use the ICP look and listen to ICP music, and apparently they are spreading.

Yeah, but given that the fbi is no longer investigating white supremacist groups as domestic terrorists.... this just feels like another tactic of other-ing a group of people.

Did they not announce that at some point in 2017? I seem to recall that being a thing.

I'll happily retract if i misunderstood or misremembered.

I mean, looking at the released documents, this investigation started in 2011, so in Obama's first term.

Not investigating white supremacists was something Trump wanted (so two presidential terms later)--I somehow doubt he actually succeeded, though--it's not like he stopped the FBI from looking into Russia's election meddling. Although he may have reduced the number of investigations/amount of funding directed towards white supremacist investigations.

(Also worth noting that Juggalos are mostly white).

Side note, I dunno why I spent a bunch of time re-typing stuff from that FBI document to quote it, apparently I could have just searched Wikipedia:

You're proooobably thinking of this series of committee hearings

https://www.washingtonpost.com/world/national-security/fbi-investigating-1000-white-supremacist-domestic-terrorism-cases/

Which prompted some left wing backlash like this:

https://www.theroot.com/fbi-to-senate-were-investigating-1-000-white-supremaci-1818878694

Basically, the FBI still definitely investigates white supremacists as domestic terrorists but Wray said there's no crime called "domestic terrorism" which makes it hard to quantify which caused others on twitter mostly to make the conclusion you just shared

Now this isn't definitive proof that Trump is a Russian puppet, but if he were a Russian puppet would he be doing anything differently?

I mean, you can apply that reasoning to 99% of what he's done ever since he announced his candidacy.

But obviously most Americans are fine with their country turning into a Russian puppet.

Wait a sec, this was their definition of "Make America Great Again"? Huh?

POLITICO - DHS halts planned funding for anti-white extremism group

The Department of Homeland Security is restarting a stalled $10-million grant program for “Countering Violent Extremism” this morning. Life After Hate, a group dedicated to deradicalizing neo-Nazis and stopping white extremism, was slated to get $400,000 in the final days of the Obama administration (http://bit.ly/2sxsh6x) before the program was halted for review, but the Trump administration dropped them from the new grant list that’s getting announced today.
