Project Veritas released a newly leaked document provided by an FBI whistleblower, which shows how the Bureau classifies American citizens it deems to be potential “Militia Violent Extremists” [MVEs].
In the document, the FBI cites symbols, images, phrases, events, and individuals that agents should look out for when identifying alleged domestic terrorists.
The “Unclassified/Law Enforcement Sensitive” document says it is for “FBI Internal Use Only.”
Of note, under the “Symbols” section, is a prominent citation of the Second Amendment, where it explains that “MVEs justify their existence with the Second Amendment, due to the mention of a ‘well-regulated Militia,’ as well as the right to bear arms.”
Right below that, under the “Commonly Referenced Historical Imagery and Quotes” section, Revolutionary War images such as the Gadsden Flag and the Betsy Ross Flag are listed. Each flag displayed in the document comes with a brief description of what it means.
Under the “Common Phrases and References” section of the leaked document, Ashli Babbitt is cited as a person that MVEs consider to be a Martyr.
The same document also refers to Ruby Ridge, Waco, and even Timothy McVeigh, tying in traditional American ideas and symbols with radical and/or violent events in the past.
Project Veritas is an organization established by James O’Keefe in 2010 as a nonprofit journalism enterprise to facilitate undercover reporting.
Ashli Babbitt was unarmed, and part of the protest at the US Capitol on January 6, 2021, when she was shot and killed by a police officer who has faced no charges for the killing.
Project Veritas, online, explains it “investigates and exposes corruption, dishonesty, self-dealing, waste, fraud, and other misconduct in both public and private institutions to achieve a more ethical and transparent society and to engage in litigation to: protect, defend and expand human and civil rights secured by law, specifically First Amendment rights including promoting the free exchange of ideas in a digital world; combat and defeat censorship of any ideology; promote truthful reporting; and defend freedom of speech and association issues including the right to anonymity”.
A report at Just the News noted, “Symbols listed on the guide also include the ‘Punisher skull’ the Spartan helmet and ‘2A.’ The guide says militant violent extremists, also known as MVEs, ‘justify their existence with the Second Amendment, due to the mention of a ‘well regulated Militia’ as well as the right to bear arms’”.
The report continues, “The same document even references Timothy McVeigh, who killed 168 people during the Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, bombing, as an inspiration for MVEs”.
Just the News pointed out that the leak comes just days after Sen. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, warned if “recent accusations of political bias in the FBI are true, it will show that the federal law enforcement agency is ‘substantially corrupted’”.
