The FBI hasn’t been doing great, these days. Recent revelations had tainted the highest law enforcement agency in the land. The highest-ranking officials within the bureau have abused their power to push politics. In 2020, they refused to investigate Hunter Biden’s laptop, to protect Joe’s chances at winning the election.
Last year, they raided the home of a former president, sending 30 armed officers, over paperwork. And that’s on top of what we already knew, that FBI officials had used fake documents to spy on Trump’s 2016–and continue to monitor him while in the White House.
But wait, there’s more! The politicization of this agency seems to know no ends. Because whistleblowers just revealed how the FBI was targeting conservatives.
What do school parents, Catholic attendees of Latin Mass and pro-life activists have in common? They’ve all been branded by the FBI as potential domestic terrorist threats in what whistleblowers say is a growing trend of using intelligence threat tags to enforce cancel culture.
The latest revelation came this past weekend when House Republicans released testimony from an FBI whistleblower who alleged colleagues in the bureau flipped a terrorist threat tag originally created to flag threats against pro-life Supreme Court justices into a signifier that anti-abortion protesters were somehow a threat.
The revelation came months after confirmation that similar threat tags were reserved for parents raising concerns about curriculum at school board meetings and the disclosure of an FBI memo suggesting Catholics who prefer the legacy Latin Mass posed a risk of extremist violence.

Yep, you read that right. Instead of going after dangerous people who threatened Supreme Court justices, the FBI was targeting pro-life supporters and concerned parents. The FBI was actually targeting law-abiding citizens, who have done nothing wrong, branding them as “domestic terrorists.”
Why would they do that? Because all these people–the Catholics, the school parents, the pro-life supporters–are politically conservative. The higher-ups at the FBI are entrenched liberals, put into power during Obama’s day and never left. They have created a culture in the agency that seeks to protect Democrat interests. Anyone they see as a threat to the left’s agenda, they go after.
Keep in mind, the agency was doing this as actual danger was brewing against the Supreme Court. Radical abortion activists were storming the homes of justices. They camped outside restaurants, ready to assault them and their families. The FBI ignored all of this, failing to arrest or prosecute any of these dangerous people, but was trying to find ways to harass conservatives.
By tagging these people “domestic terrorists” it opened the door for the FBI to have reason to monitor them. None of these conservatives were criminals or actual threats. But the FBI was abusing its system to look for reasons to come down on these people. The moment one of them ran a red light or was late paying a tax, the FBI could swoop in.
This was a violation of Americans’ constitutional rights. And the FBI must be held accountable for this.
