New task force to target ‘anti-government extremists’
With almost no media coverage, the White House last week announced its new Interagency Working Group to Counter Online Radicalization to Violence that will target not only Islamic terrorists but so-called violent “sovereign citizens.”
Projection: Psychological projection is the phenomenon whereby one projects one’s own thoughts, motivations, desires, feelings, and so on onto someone else. (Leftists assume conservatives desire insurrection because that is their own desire. You see that every time one of their commentators goes off the reservation and rants about how they would like to kill republicans. ~TD)
The FBI defines “sovereign citizens” as “anti-government extremists who believe that even though they physically reside in this country, they are separate or ‘sovereign’ from the United States.”

The law enforcement agency noted such citizens believe they don’t have to answer to any government authority, including courts, taxing entities, motor vehicle departments or police.
The FBI warned that sovereign citizens commit murder and physical assault; threaten judges, law enforcement professionals and government personnel; impersonate police officers and diplomats; and engineer various white-collar scams, including mortgage fraud and so-called “redemption” schemes.
(Wait a minute. It sounds like Jesse Jackson and Louis Farrakhan are “sovereign citizens”. ~TD)
The new online working group will be chaired by the national security staff at the White House with input from specialists in countering what the Obama administration calls violent extremism.
