US political move toward violent method circa 1932/2022
America is warning citizens about Donald Trump’s militias and the propensity for violence against elected officials. Violence is a growing political method in the United States. Both sides, the left and the extreme right have destroyed property in rallies ironically aimed at stopping violence. It’s getting worse, says DHS.
Comment by Micheal John
The extreme right activists have assaulted police and caused at least one death. There seems to be irony in that.
The Department of Homeland Security has a cop mentality. Cops are on the side of the militias inasmuch as they were targeted by the Black Lives Matter movement which was angry at cops for targeting and killing Blacks. It’s recent warning is quirky and indicates America’s democracy is challenged violently, but by who? All sides?
In 2020 on 25 May, George Floyd, died at 46 years of age after a Minneapolis police officer knelt on his neck and killed him. That lit a fuse to pent up animosity against an American history of genocidal attacks against Blacks in America.
Cops kill blacks in America. But Blacks reportedly see they have political momentum to stop this scourge and are playing it up. Cops are offended and say that the behaviour of a few is the problem. Who can you trust?
- Black lives matter, yes, and why would this ever need to be raised unless systemic racism is so strong in the USA there is no apparent belief in ever seeing a form of human dignity equally across the spectrum of races, colours and creeds.
- Asian lives matter too. Asians and Pacific Islanders say they are horribly discriminated against as well as Blacks.
- Muslims and Jews matter as well. They are also discriminated against, they say, through various organizations.
America has been ripe for the exploitation of racial differences just as was Germany in Hitler’s days, when democracy failed.

Adolf Hitler had a plan. He exploited racist under-currents and violent anger caused between the ‘haves and the have nots’. Donald Trump, a white supremacist, does this as well and his plan is identical to Hitler’s.
Enlist ‘Ex-Soldiers and Unemployed Men’.
The Holocaust Explained blog of the London Jewish Cultural Centre and the Wiener Holocaust Library reminds us that the Nazi Party’s paramilitary organization “were the Sturm Abeilung, more commonly known as the SA. The SA were formed in 1921 and were known as ‘brownshirts’ due to their brown uniform. Initially most members were ex-soldiers or unemployed men. Violent and often disorderly, the SA were primarily responsible for the protection of leading Nazis and disrupting other political opponents’ meetings, although they often had a free rein on their activities.”
“In 1925, Hitler also established the Schutzstaffel, otherwise known as the SS. The SS were initially created as Hitler’s personal bodyguards, although they would go on to police the entire Third Reich.”

Yesterday the US National Terrorism Advisory System was cautiously advising the American people that danger lurked in the form of a violent uprising in support of an extremist political ideal.
“Long-standing racial and ethnic tension—including opposition to immigration” according to the announcement, are driving violence. Sound familiar? Hitler ran the same campaign.
Three attacks against government officials in 2020 fuel the Department of Homeland Security’s worries that “these same drivers to violence will remain through early 2021 and some DVEs may be emboldened by the January 6, 2021 breach of the U.S. Capitol Building in Washington, D.C. to target elected officials and government facilities.”
The DHS warnings sound a lot like what was happening in 1999 as Y2K approached. Terrorist attacks but this time from within. Americans against Americans.
The US Department of Homeland Security is warning that America’s critical infrastructure, including the electric, telecommunications and healthcare sectors are at grave risk.
DHS is blaming “misinformation and conspiracy theories about COVID-19″ but without pointing out that the source of the propaganda is Donald (Adolf-mimic?) Trump.
Hitler’s use of propaganda was also paramount to his success. His final rise to power cost the lives of 75 million. Hitler had political failures before rising to the top.
For the Convenience of Readers the text of the DHS warning is set out below.
- Throughout 2020, Domestic Violent Extremists (DVEs) targeted individuals with opposing views engaged in First Amendment-protected, non-violent protest activity. DVEs motivated by a range of issues, including anger over COVID-19 restrictions, the 2020 election results, and police use of force have plotted and on occasion carried out attacks against government facilities.
- Long-standing racial and ethnic tension—including opposition to immigration—has driven DVE attacks, including a 2019 shooting in El Paso, Texas that killed 23 people.
- DHS is concerned these same drivers to violence will remain through early 2021 and some DVEs may be emboldened by the January 6, 2021 breach of the U.S. Capitol Building in Washington, D.C. to target elected officials and government facilities.
- DHS remains concerned that Homegrown Violent Extremists (HVEs) inspired by foreign terrorist groups, who committed three attacks targeting government officials in 2020, remain a threat.
- Threats of violence against critical infrastructure, including the electric, telecommunications and healthcare sectors, increased in 2020 with violent extremists citing misinformation and conspiracy theories about COVID-19 for their actions.
- DHS, as well as other Federal agencies and law enforcement partners will continue to take precautions to protect people and infrastructure across the United States.
- DHS remains committed to preventing violence and threats meant to intimidate or coerce specific populations on the basis of their religion, race, ethnicity, identity or political views.
- DHS encourages state, local, tribal, and territorial homeland security partners to continue prioritizing physical security measures, particularly around government facilities, to protect people and critical infrastructure.
