Response to PoliticAverse (Reply #2)

5. The issue of domestic terrorists has been neglected for decades, as in, there is no such category...

...in the law, from what I have heard. This needs to be rectified soon.

Anybody who supports Planned Parenthood and other women’s reproductive rights organizations has known for 40 years about one network of domestic terrorists that has moved way past clinic protests and supports arson, murder, maiming, stalking, and doxxing. Their heroes are sheltered, hidden, and supported when on the run. When in prison they are still treated as heroes and receive visits, gifts, and letters.

The USA PATRIOT ACT (1 & 2) was shocking. Many of us believe it was overreach, but I am not going to argue the case now.

In all sincerity, there were American elements that were simply left out: white Christian men with personal armories and a simmering grudge against society and the federal government. Now, right now, we all just witnessed a political insurrection in which our Capitol was overrun. By these men and their female cohorts. They are fully networked across social media — so much so that there’s even a Proud Boys chapter in Honolulu.

The Legislature needs to name them for what they are — domestic terrorists — and enact a coherent body of laws to deal with them.
