Are You A Terrorist? Read the FBI’s Definition!

“The second category of domestic terrorists, left-wing groups, generally profess a revolutionary socialist doctrine and view themselves as protectors of the people against the ‘dehumanizing effects’ of capitalism and imperialism. They aim to bring about change in the United States through revolution rather than through the established political
process.”

Are you, or is someone you love, a terrorist?

“The second category of domestic terrorists, left-wing groups, generally profess a revolutionary socialist doctrine and view themselves as protectors of the people against the ‘dehumanizing effects’ of capitalism and imperialism. They aim to bring about change in the United States through revolution rather than through the established political process.

“Anarchists and extremist socialist groups — many of which, such as the Workers’World Party, Reclaim the Streets, and Carnival Against Capitalism — have an international presence and, at
times, also represent a potential threat in the United
States. For example, anarchists, operating individually and in groups, caused much of the damage during the 1999 World Trade Organization ministerial meeting in Seattle.

“Special interest terrorism differs from traditional right-wing and left-wing terrorism in that extremist special interest groups seek to resolve specific issues, rather than effect more widespread political change. Special interest extremists continue to conduct acts of politically motivated violence to force segments of society, including, the general public, to change attitudes about issues considered
important to their causes. These groups occupy the extreme fringes of animal rights, pro-life, environmental, anti-nuclear, and other political and social movements.”

[ “The FBI is currently investigating several criminal acts committed in the United States during 2000 and 2001 for possible designation as acts of terrorism,” for the complete Congressional
