They’re not referring to Antifa which has long used encrypted apps to organize violent protests and to actually engage in terrorism to intimidate their political enemies. The brats get away with that because they are the pampered offspring of White middle class professionals and elites.
“Included in a new federal government report on possible extremist attacks on the Capitol is a warning that information on specific threats has become harder to come by in the wake of the Jan. 6 siege amid a shift toward encrypted communications programs. …”
Who are these “extremists”?
They are Americans who have been banned from mainstream social media platforms because of their politics at the behest of the ADL. They are people who are sick and tired of being stalked, smeared, doxxed and harassed by “journalists” and who are communicating and networking with likeminded people. It is mostly people cracking jokes, sharing memes, shitposting and interacting with their friends. They used to do all of these things on Twitter and Facebook until they were hounded off the internet.
Note: There are people like Jared Holt and Taylor Lorenz who are creepy hall monitors and tattletales who eavesdrop on private conversations. Everyone hates them.
