The nice thing is we know this won't be true next year...not because of a change in risk (probably the opposite), but because under Trump/Bannon, white supremicists with violent tendencies won't be targeted by the FBI as extremists! So no arrests! Yay!

Is this true?

whether or not that is true, it does seem as though trump and co. aren't very concerned with terrorist acts from within

At least that's how spicer is making it sound
I trust Danny Ainge

Kinda sorta - it's not the FBI but an existing counterextremism program would be refocused only on Islamic extremism and ignore everything else, including white supremacists.

I wonder how effective the Countering Violent Extremism Program was. I wonder if we should just get rid of it rather than aim it as Muslims.
