White Supremacists™: is there anything they aren’t capable of?
Via CBS News:
“On the heels of a string of high-profile attempted attacks at power substations, the top intelligence official at the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) remains “very concerned” about copycat attacks on the U.S. energy grid, driven by white nationalist narratives online…
The vision, in short, is that they want to take down the energy grid because if they take down the energy grid, they believe that society will then collapse… And out of the collapse, [they believe], will arise a white nationalist government to replace the current government. And we’ve seen this narrative online among these white nationalist groups.”
If you want to give yourself a migraine, try to work out the logistics of how taking down the power grid would result in a White Supremacy™ Fourth Reich utopia.
The best operatives the White Supremacists™, seemingly, are capable of producing in their Idaho training camps or whatever is an Indian armed with a Nazi flag and no bombs driving a truck into a federal barricade and a thirty-person gang of masked (probably fed) hooligans in khaki pants given the on-the-nose moniker the “Patriot Front.”
Yet they are capable of coordinating an assault on critical US infrastructure that will leave millions without power, thwarting the best good-faith efforts of the DHS which has annual funding north of $50 billion.
Makes total sense.
