WASHINGTON (ChurchMilitant.com) - The Federal Bureau of Investigation is listing words that could flag citizens as potential extremists. 

According to documents obtained by the Heritage Foundation's Oversight Project, the FBI has created a glossary of terms used by "Racially or Ethnically Motived Violent Extremists (RMVE)."

The report, titled "Involuntary Celibate Violent Extremism," was obtained through a Freedom of Information Act request and is filled with words commonly used online by younger, more conservative-minded individuals. 

It is part of the Bureau's Domestic Terrorism Reference Guide. 

Words Out of Context

The Daily Signal, Heritage's multimedia news organization, noted that "many of the terms on the list of words the FBI is watching out for could be used with no context involving race or extremist views." 

One of the words cited by the FBI is "based," which the FBI says RMVEs use "to refer to someone who has been converted to racist ideology, or as a way of indicating ideological agreement."

The term "redpilled" — stemming from The Matrix movies — is purported to indicate "the adoption of racist, anti-Semitic, or fascist beliefs."

The Vortex: A Dangerous Road

The terms "Chad" and "Stacy" are also listed. Those names appear in memes commonly made by conservatives to promote the ideal characteristics of men and women.

Notably, left-wing terminology is absent from the report. Terms such as TERF, which stands for "trans-exclusionary radical feminist" but can now represent any person who opposes trans ideology, are not listed. 

The increasingly violent so-called LGBTQ lobby has a number of words and phrases it uses to degrade individuals and incite controversy, but none can be found in the FBI's report.

FBI Weaponization

This comes after the recently denounced FBI dossier that targeted "radical traditional Catholics," or RTCs.

The report, which explicitly named Church Militant, falsely stated:

Open source reporting and FBI investigations have noted a growing overlap between the far-right white nationalist movement and RTCs. Illustrative of this has been the increasing collaboration of the far-right Catholic media outlet Church Militant (and its activist wing, the Resistance network) with the America First/"groyper" movement.

The attack on Catholics was prepared using a list of so-called hate groups compiled by the discredited Southern Poverty Law Center.

After the document was leaked to the public by a whistleblower, the FBI responded, "While our standard practice is to not comment on specific intelligence products, this particular field office product — disseminated only within the FBI — regarding racially or ethnically motivated violent extremism does not meet the exacting standards of the FBI."

Under Joe Biden, the FBI has been accused of having been weaponized against the Left's political and ideological opponents — the most famous being President Donald Trump.

The Vortex: Blowing up Justice

In August 2022, the FBI raided Trump's Mar-a-Lago residence. He publically responded, "Such an assault could only take place in broken, Third-World Countries. Sadly, America has now become one of those Countries, corrupt at a level not seen before."

Another famous FBI overstep was the September 2022 raid and arrest of pro-life Catholic Mark Houck for an alleged violation of the Freedom of Access to Clinic Entrances Act. 

Houck was arrested at gunpoint in front of his family by a team of nearly 25 armed agents at his Pennsylvania home but was acquitted in January.
