DHS Thinks Wearing Black Means You May Be An Anarchist

By Aaron Kesel

The Department of Homeland Security has expressed to law enforcement how to ID anti-racist Antifa protesters—by looking for people who are sent to scout out marching routes wearing black, The Daily Beast reported.

The Counterprotesters at white supremacist rallies risk being characterized as “anarchist extremists,” even if they have nothing to do with Antifa itself, Department of Homeland Security documents showed according to The Daily Beast.

A September 2016 DHS report shortly before Obama left office describes law enforcement response during clashes between white supremacists and antifascists (commonly known as “Antifa”). The report, which was obtained by the government transparency nonprofit Property of the People and shared with The Daily Beast, revealed how the Obama DHS had profiled leftist protesters. A few months after the report’s release, the Trump Justice Department would use similar, overbroad profiles to prosecute hundreds of people who protested at President Donald Trump’s inauguration day ceremony.

The DHS report highlights “two violent clashes in 2016 in Sacramento and Anaheim between anarchist extremists and lawfully protesting white supremacists at legally permitted rallies.”

The report uses those cases to describe how law enforcement might target future “anarchist extremists” who protest at white supremacist rallies. But the agency’s description of “anarchist extremists” is dubious and suggests the DHS might be conflating multiple distinct social movements.

On Jan. 20, 2017, three months after the DHS report’s publication, D.C. police arrested hundreds of people who protested outside Trump’s inauguration. Guess what? The prosecutors in that case initially pressed charges against 200 people, accusing them of conspiring to riot based on evidence they were walking with the group or wearing dark clothing.

Further, in a move straight out of Minority Report, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) wants to develop advanced facial recognition technology that scans the faces of travelers as they enter and leave the U.S. border on highways, Activist Post reported.

If that wasn’t enough, the DHS’s response if you feel they are violating your rights is comical.

Last year, Homeland Security clarified their position on domestic spying stating Americans who don’t want faces scanned leaving the country “shouldn’t travel.”

“The only way for an individual to ensure he or she is not subject to collection of biometric information when traveling internationally is to refrain from traveling,” the DHS wrote in a document.

Not only does the DHS want a facial recognition database, the DHS is also seeking to spy on journalists, bloggers and anyone who mentions its name keeping a database i.e. this reporter reporting on the overall insanity of profiling going on within the DHS. The First Amendment, both the right to assemble and the rights to a free press, is singing its final swan song and dying right before our very eyes.

  1. Well, as far as wearing black… that just implicated 90% of new york city.

    I noticed this is the third article here at AP about anarchists.
    Will they now become another new boogieman used by perceived authority to scare everyone with?
    Like they really need more.
    Let’s see. They have republicans or democrats, (depending on which football team you cheerlead for)
    Let’s not forget trump (he’s responsible for just about everything), Muslims, Christians, NK, Russia, White men (especially young school children), Iran, Immigrants, guns (especially guns), toddlers, your neighbor and shadows.
    There’s actually much more so I will say we are afraid of everything.

      *chuckling* Well said Common Sense, well said. Fear is the greatest(one of) that the kakistocracy uses. Be afraid of clowns, be afraid of your neighbor, be afraid of old people, be afraid of being afraid. “I must not fear; fear is the mind killer. Fear is the little death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will allow it to pass over me and through me. And where it has gone I will turn my inner eye to see it’s path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.”- Frank Herbert.

  2. At all antifa rallies — look for the Innocent generally older “coordinator” observing, recording, passing instructions …. will have an ipad … smart phone for communication and recording …. neutralize them ….

  3. — My question is, Why didn’t Department of Homeland Secur4ity ban ALL muslums and build the wall 17 years ago?
    What has DHS been doing besides strutting around like impotent peacocks with machineguns, padding their paychecks and pensions, and diverting emergency equipment and office supplies to their basements and garages?

      I am literally laughing at the last paragraph you wrote Zaphod Braden. Hilarious and I concur. What it’s all about. My buddy started a business, and he says that all the laws, rules, policies, etc, are made to create criminals, to entice people(owners) to be criminals. He said it is insane. It is because governments are always created by criminals to be even bigger criminals.

    • Zaphod Homeland security is not here to deal with Muslums, Mexicans or Canadians. It is here to deal with us. That’s why Patriots, Christians and Conservative groups were designated as terrorists under the Obama administration.

  4. I think this messes up symptoms and causes

  5. There is very little anyone can do to affect the language choices of the dhs. They have already taken over the policy trends for US as we are at war. The military coup that has been running this country since Eisenhower at the behest of the hidden claw of the extraterrestrials (tall white Reptilians) is about to close the gap on free speech regardless of the labels being used. DHS has control of the electoral process in the obsolete USA as we are under undeclared martial law and have for quite some time. The military is not the citizens friend. The protesting is a scam in order to obfuscate the ability to organize citizens which is now impossible due to cell phone, camera and satellite surveillance; facial recognition is just the icing on an already existing cake which we have been forced to eat for decades. The tall white Reptilians are the gods you pray to every Sunday, the planet you stand on is theirs and you will do what you are told or feel the wrath of the (God) gods.

      Yes we are at war; with them. The majority population of this planet is at war with those whom they have selected to be their proxies. And, whom those proxies place. Including the UN.

  6. The media. Black clothes, the government, Guns, School Shootings, republicans, democrats, immigrants, LGBT, the President, Russia, China, Iran, North Korea, health insurance, terrorists, Antifa, BLM, white privilege, racism, and so on and so on. It is all created to keep us in turmoil, fear and arguing while the elite globalists implement the one world government.

      Rightly so and rightly pointed out BugsBunnyPatriot. Order out of chaos.

        My comment to this article was censored and deleted. *sigh* Has some funny lines in there as well! But, must be doing something correct methinks.

        • Yeah I’ve been censored too. In fact I had to go trough a period when I was not allowed to comment at all. Love the Left……..

          • lightingstrikesthrice | April 15, 2018 at 7:24 am |

            And the right. Just a paradigm. As in sports, one side or t’other, the ultimate goal is still achieved.

            “If you’re takin’ Flak, your directly over the target”….Well said! Second Paragraph: getting old isn’t it? Even these “alternative media” sites doing it. If they have a platform come as a message board, than they can say(think?) that it isn’t them doing the censoring. Ha! I read a comment(s) to me and to others that Disqus had been bought out. Not surprised in the least. Knowledge is indeed power. It just blows my mind that the majority that I know or know of, do not want to know. Insane to me. Why do people wish to live in delusion? I haven’t been to Black Listed News in some time, month or two perhaps. Mayhaps I will check them out today. I usually just hit my you tube channels, and Activist Post, Consortium News, Off-guardian, and Global Research. *shrugs* I check out sites all the time, but don’t have the time to bounce around much.

  7. “Dying before our very eyes”? Absolutely right. Such death of American rights enshrined in a very old document, that is more honoured in the breach than in the observance, is totally due to gross American insouciance!
