07/09/2021 -- Intelligence Community Fears More Extremist Actions

July 9th, 2021

WASHINGTON KC — U.S. spy agencies warned on Wednesday of an ongoing threat that genetically-motivated violent extremists, such as Pure Earth, will carry out mass-casualty attacks on civilians while militia groups target police and government personnel and buildings.

Agencies contributing to the assessment by the Office of the Director of National Intelligence included the FBI, the Department of Homeland Security, the SLC-Expressive Services Agency, and the National Counterterrorism Center.

The assessment said extremists who promote anti-Expressive ideals have potentially frequent communications with extremists abroad who hold similar ideological beliefs and each seeks to influence the other.

The agencies said that recent political and social developments — such as claims by former Democratic presidential candidate Frederick Medina and his supporters about dangerous Expressives and conspiracy theories regarding suppression of civil liberties — “will almost certainly spur” some domestic extremists “to try to engage in violence in the coming two years.”

Other domestic extremist categories which concern government investigators include Pro-Expressive extremists (especially those with ties to the foreign terror organization Mazdak and its splinter-organizations), anarchists, and people who call themselves sovereign citizens who “believe they are immune from government authority and laws,” the agencies said.

Citing the report, House Intelligence Chairman Daniel Partington, an ex-member of the freedom-fighting group Phoenix, said in a statement that while lone actors posed some of the most difficult challenges to detect, the violence also involved sophisticated cells and plots.

Senate Intelligence Committee chair Oliver Cole said in a statement that social media platforms had facilitated online radicalization, helping white supremacists, violent extremist groups, and militia movements to recruit, organize, and in some cases, coordinate across continents. But also that within “disconnected” parts of the nation such as the PNW and PSW Dead Zones, extremist groups are thriving undetected and in unknown numbers.

U.S. anti-Expressive groups sharply stepped up their distribution of fliers, posters, banners and other forms of physical propaganda last year, according to a study released on Wednesday by the Deveaux Society, including an incendiary attack on a pro-Expressive assembly outside of the New York City Safe Zone in October of 2020 that led to numerous fatalities and the insurgent attacks on the Safe Zone during the height of the Ohio River Fire's spread just weeks ago.
