Ending FBI Would Be A Good Thing — Chris Farrell at Gatestone Institute is calling for the elimination of the FBI.
This is long overdue.
The FBI does not a have storied history but a propagandized one.
It did not get Bonnie and Clyde. That was accomplished with a posse led by Texas Ranger Frank Hamer.
It did get John Dillinger but that was only after they let him escape twice causing the death of at least one innocent bystander, which is not an uncommon occurrence for the G-men.
They take credit for the capture of Nazi saboteurs in World War II, but the laurels should really go to the Coast Guard.
Defending us from the Reds in the Cold War? LOL. Robert Hanssen funneled intel to the Soviets for decades — even long after the Berlin Wall fell — causing the deaths of numerous Russians working for us.
The FBI tormented Martin Luther King Jr., illegally surveilled other activists, and created agent provocateurs to disrupt and disunite the Civil Rights Movement, and the nation in general. It gave us Kwanza, after all.
The FBI denied the existence of the Mafia for decades. Seriously, what was up with that?
It caused the unnecessary deaths of 82 people — including children — in a botched siege in Waco, Tx in 1993; and killed a mother holding a child while trying to arrest a guy for cutting a shotgun barrel too short.
It played political favorites ignoring serious crimes by the appropriately connected while ruining the lives of the not-so-connected by twisting the law worse than a pretzel, if not out-and-out ignoring it.
Just like J. Edgar Hoover did with Mafia, present Director Chris Wray has claimed that Antifa is not organized.
Just as it was the portal to our secrets for the Soviets, consider this.
The nation would be better off if the FBI never existed. We have a surfeit of federal law enforcement agencies, anyway. Get rid of it.
Ending the FBI? It’s a good thing, as Martha Stewart might say.
