the character of Trump supporters to exhibit this kind of extreme behavior. Over the past several years the left has demonstrated several times over, their capacity for violence. In some instances, they have even been exposed infiltrating conservative groups to make them look like the radicals. Was it trump supporters that stormed the capitol today, or Antifa in disguise?
The idea of infiltrating opposing groups isn’t new. Saul Alinsky was once asked by a group of college students the best way to protest a visit from George Bush Sr. when he was a U.S. representative to the U.N. His advice was to show up to the speech dressed as Klu Klux Klan members while showing strong support for everything Bush said. Of course, the intent was to portray Bush as a Klu Klux Klan supporter. This is an example of one of Alinsky’s rules of tactics which states that a good tactic is one people enjoy and should have fun doing. Another example of infiltration was the Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville Virginia. The organizer, Josh Kessler, was a member of the far left Occupy Wallstreet movement and, a known Obama supporter. The intent, just as today’s events in D.C., was to portray Trump’s supporters as violent white supremacists.
Unfortunately, the government has also been exposed infiltrating groups with the intent of portraying them as radical extremists. During the recent Oregon mining standoff, FBI agents were allegedly exposed posing as militia members and breaking into the local national guard armory, trying to give the impression that right wingers were intent on starting a violent revolution against the government. They have been doing this for a long time under the operational name COINTELPRO. In the 1980s, when the militia movement was strong, the FBI formed a group called the Veterans Aaryan Movement for the explicit purpose of trying to recruit so-called right-wing extremists into committing acts of violence. Despite believing that the right posed an imminent threat to national security, no intent to commit violent crimes was ever uncovered. Another example has FBI agents planting bomb making materials onto the property of Georgia militia members, attempting to portray them as terrorists. Given this information is entirely possible today’s events could have been led by agent provocateurs.
There has been an agenda to portray conservatives as violent extremists for some time. The report Rightwing Extremism: Current Economic and Political Climate Fueling Resurgence in Radicalization and Recruitment suggests that conservatives who support gun rights, oppose immigration and believe in the New World Order conspiracy theories are potential extremists. All of this is subjective speculation as there is no evidence whatsoever that right wing conservatives are planning on, or have committed, any acts of violence on par with what we have seen the left get away with. Finally, an article published in Psychological bulletin entitled Political conservatism as motivated social cognition, claims that conservatives are mentally ill because of a rigid resistance to change and a willingness to accept intolerance and inequality.
