Wray's Remarks on "CU" in Testimony Before Congress
[2:21 min clip]
DIGG results and analysis
1. Wray's comments on Q were pretty nondescript, despite the questioner dem Rep. Sheila Jackson-Lee's efforts to suggests that Qanon was somehow provoking violence, e.g.:
Jackson-Lee: So I'm interested in how Qanon activity has results in the arrest of persons planning to carry out violent acts based on the nonsense spouted in web forums and social media that forms the core of Qanon beliefs. How do you characterize that organization? [see his reply under #2]
2. Compare Wray's comments on Q with those on Antifa:
Asked how the FBI views QAnon, Wray said it was seen “as essentially less of an organization and more of a sort of a complex
set of conspiracy theories.”
“And certainly we have had cases where that properly predicate cases involving violence where people have been motivated by some of those conspiracy theories and …we don’t investigate the ideology or the conspiracy theory itself,” he said. “I don’t think we have seen lethal attacks involving that kind of motivation … no matter what ideology or belief it is of domestic violent extremism we look at three things: One, violence or a threat of violence; two, a federal crime, obviously; and then third the motivation that fuels it. We have to have those three things to open an investigation.”
“We look at Antifa as more of an ideology or a movement that an organization. To be clear, we do have quite a number of properly predicated domestic terrorism investigations into violent anarchist extremists, any number of whom self-identify with the Antifa movement.
3. The parties that reported his fairly neutral remarks on Qanon were NOT mainstream media - they were apparently not interested in Wray's lack of concern re Qanon. Here are several other reports in addition to the two above (search term = "wray asked about qanon"):
https://www.facebook.com/OccupyDemocrats/videos/2234206416725614/ [radical leftists - they threw in the q clip but were more interested in the idea that in the category of 'racially motivated violence,' white suprecists were the 'largest chunk')
__The top search results citing MSM articles had NOTHING to do with Wray's remarks - but instead focused on either irrelevant (but negative) stuff on Qanon or last years's Yahoo report that claimed the FBI saw Q as a domestic terrorist organization:
'''4. Some of the excellent responses to M3thods tweet [see above] on Wray's remarks:
He [Wray] basically said they view Q as a complex set of conspiracy theories, but they don’t investigate the underlying theories.. they only investigate the people that have been motivated to take violent actions.
- Anyone notice that MSM and the Dems always frame their questions and comments on Q with insults? "What are your thoughts on these ridiculous ideas and the morons that follow them?" And they talk about violence with no proof? Why so threatened?
- “I don’t think we’ve seen lethal attacks involving that kind of [QAnon] motivation - Wray .”
- BLM and Antifa have political power support. They focus on separation and destruction. Q focuses on informative information of bringing truths to the people. Waking people up to the facts of the matter. That include to the true evils that are behind protecting BLM & Antifa
- So where is the list of those who have been charged with violence, due to a "QAnon conspiracy" they believed and acted upon?
