To combat the ability of terror groups to attract teenagers (note: there has only been one variety of terrorist doing this in the United States) the FBI has set up a website to educate teens on terrorism.
More and more, violent extremists are trying to radicalize and recruit our nation’s youth, especially through the Internet and social media.
It’s the FBI’s primary responsibility—working with its many partners—to protect the nation from attacks by violent extremists. One important way to do that is to keep young people—the future of our country—from embracing violent extremist ideologies in the first place.
This website is designed to help do just that. Built by the FBI in consultation with community leaders and other partners, it uses a series of interactive materials to educate teens on the destructive nature of violent extremism and to encourage them to think critically about its messages and goals.
The site emphasizes that by blindly accepting radical ideologies, teens are essentially becoming the “puppets” of violent extremists who simply want them to carry out their destructive mission—which often includes targeting or killing innocent people.
The FBI encourages community groups, families, and high schools across the United States to use this site as part of their educational efforts. All Americans are asked to join the FBI in exposing the seductive nature of violent extremist propaganda and offering positive alternatives to violence.
This is one of the landing pages:
Can anyone spot what is missing? Hmmm… The people that have killed the most Americans via terrorism than any other group aren’t mentioned. Those would be the people behind 9/11 and Fort Hood and Chattanooga and Garland and San Bernardino; the people actively recruiting young people to go to Syria to fight for ISIS. The terror front groups like Holy Land Foundation and CAIR and whatever mosque the last Democrat politician visited who encourage young people to become terrorists by both commission and omission.
This is the chuckleheaded nonsense we’ve come to expect of federal law enforcement under the regime of Barack Obama. The cast a veritable cheesecloth net to seine the ocean for the minnows of “abortion extremists” and “militia extremists” and allow the whale of Islamic extremism to swim free.
