FBI Forced to Retract Document Tying Catholics to ‘White Nationalism’
Well this is scary!
As we continue to confront a menagerie of politically murky moments in 2023, there is a great deal of discussion happening in regard to the FBI, and the potential for the Bureau to be compromised or weaponized by an overzealous administration.
The fears are so cogent, in fact, that Congressional Republicans have dedicated an entire committee to investigate this troubling trend.
Underscoring the necessity for such a probe is news that the FBI this week retracted an internal document that appeared to associate faithful Americans with “white nationalism”.
The FBI has pulled a leaked internal document announcing an investigation into “radical traditionalist” Catholics and their possible ties to the “far-right white nationalist movement” following vocal backlash.
As Breitbart News reported, the text was leaked this week by an FBI whistleblower and subsequently published by Kyle Seraphin, who had been a special agent at the bureau for six years before he was indefinitely suspended without pay in June 2022.
Commenting on the leaked document, Seraphin noted an unsubstantiated assumption that “a preference for the Catholic Mass in Latin instead of the vernacular and a number of more traditional views on other world religions can amount to an ‘adherence to anti-Semitic, anti-immigrant, anti-LGBTQ and white supremacist ideology.’”
The Bureau pumped out some quick boilerplate gibberish for a retort.
In response to an inquiry from the Catholic News Agency (CNA), the FBI said it would remove the document because “it does not meet our exacting standards.”
“While our standard practice is to not comment on specific intelligence products, this particular field office product — disseminated only within the FBI — regarding racially or ethnically motivated violent extremism does not meet the exacting standards of the FBI,” the statement read, while begging the question of how targeting a faith group relates to “racial” or “ethnic” discrimination.
“Upon learning of the document, FBI Headquarters quickly began taking action to remove the document from FBI systems and conduct a review of the basis for the document,” the statement continued. “The FBI is committed to sound analytic tradecraft and to investigating and preventing acts of violence and other crimes while upholding the constitutional rights of all Americans and will never conduct investigative activities or open an investigation based solely on First Amendment protected activity.”
In a nation that professes to extol the virtues of religious freedom, the targeting of America’s faithful by a federal agency is a disturbing revelation indeed.
