On Monday, newly released documents warned that the FBI is associating common internet language with "Violent Extremism," according to Fox News.
The Oversight Project at the Heritage Foundation revealed through a Freedom of Information Act request that the FBI has identified common internet slang as a possible indicator of "Involuntary Celibate Violent Extremism" or "Racially or Ethnically Motivated Violent Extremism" in glossaries included in their documents, the outlet reported.
A portion of the document specifically refers to "incels," or those "involuntary celibate," whom the "threat overview" goes on to describe as potentially seeking to "commit violence in support of their beliefs that society unjustly denies them sexual or romantic attention, to which they believe they are entitled." The assessment notes further: "While most incels do not engage in violence," others have become involved in "at least five lethal attacks in the United States and Canada."
Fox News added, citing the Heritage Foundation's findings: "Many of the terms mentioned in the FBI’s list of incel terminology are either widely used across the internet or innocuous in nature."
The one term in the glossary is "Red Pill," popularized by the 1999 movie "The Matrix," which has been used as a metaphor for seeing hidden or politically incorrect truths about the world, particularly in relation to politics or dating. However, the FBI's definition characterizes it as "a belief shared by many online communities that society is corrupt, and that the believer is a victim of this corruption."
Several terms listed in the FBI glossaries are related to self-improvement or the challenges faced in the modern dating scene.
For instance, the glossary describes the term "Chad" as a "Race -specific term used to describe the idealized version of a male, who is very successful at getting sexual and romantic attention from women." It later notes that "incels unsuccessfully compete against Chads for attention."
In addition, the list includes the term "Looksmaxxing," defined in the document as the "process of self-improvement with the intent to become more attractive," according to Fox News, which added:
There are many terms associated with self-pity rather than violence, such as saying "It's Over" to convey "the hopelessness of being an incel" or referring to a "heightcel" or "baldcel" to define people with short stature or baldness, respectively.
The FBI list for terms associated with "Racially or Ethnically Motivated Violent Extremism" (RMVE) has a mix of extreme terms and innocuous ones.
"Red Pill" also appears in this list, but with a different description: "In the context of RMVE ideology, taking the red pill or becoming ‘redpilled’ indicates the adoption of racist, anti-Semitic, or fascist beliefs."
According to the FBI, "Based" is a term used to "refer to someone who has been converted to racist ideology, or as a way of indicating ideological agreement." However, in its original context, "based" was coined by rapper Lil B and has a broader meaning that can refer to something that is "agreeable" and "cool" or something that is "considered anti-woke."
One of the marked keywords is "LARPing," which was originally used to refer to people who engage in live-action role-playing, often portraying characters in a high-fantasy setting. In a political context, the term can refer to individuals who hold unrealistic or improbable political ideals, such as those who dream of a future United States governed by a monarchy.
Again, it should be crystal clear by now to anyone with an IQ over 80 that the FBI is not focused on protecting the country from real threats but rather a politicized entity that seeks to persecute 'enemies' of tyranny.
