Greenlighting violence: Trump (almost) secretly enables fascists to commit American carnage
The Trump administration wants to revamp and rename a U.S. government program designed to counter all violent ideologies so that it focuses solely on Islamist extremism, five people briefed on the matter told Reuters.
The program, “Countering Violent Extremism,” or CVE, would be changed to “Countering Islamic Extremism” or “Countering Radical Islamic Extremism,” the sources said, and would no longer target groups such as white supremacists who have also carried out bombings and shootings in the United States.
Just in the past two years, authorities blamed radical and violent ideologies as the motives for a white supremacist’s shooting rampage inside a historic African-American church in Charleston, South Carolina and Islamist militants for shootings and bombings in California, Florida and New York.
Trump wants law enforcement to turn its back on domestic terrorist groups. I won’t go so far as to say he wants more Heather Heyers, but he is enabling it with his decisions and his rhetoric.
It is time for Trump to be removed from the Ovan Office by any legal means available.
