(WatchDogReport.org) – In 2020, riots rocked the country after the death of George Floyd in police custody. The riots left roughly $1 billion in damage to businesses, personal, and federal property. And yet, the Democratic Party has been painting Conservatives as if they’re the domestic terrorists America should fear. Recently, former CIA Director John Brennan shattered that narrative.
On May 18, Brennan spoke to Juliette Kayyem, a former assistant secretary at the Department of Homeland Security and Harvard professor, about Left-wing radicalization. She said the FBI is focusing heavily on the extreme right. The former CIA director said he’s “concerned about some of this rhetoric coming from the Left.” He explained there are people on the Left who are “engaging in vigilantism” and who fall under the “broad rubric of Antifa.”
The former director went on to say that he thinks there are progressive members of Congress “stoking” concerns that “America is sliding into a socialist state,” warning that politicians need to think about their rhetoric.

Brennan’s comments contradict the progressive idea that there’s only a problem with far-Right extremism in the US. He acknowledged that the Left certainly has dangerous extremists in their party who are committing acts of violence for their cause. It would be nice if FBI Director Christopher Wray and President Joe Biden would listen to Brennan and stop brushing off concerns the American people have about Antifa.
