Misogynistic men who identify as part of the “Involuntary Celibate” movement are domestic terrorism threats, according to a new report.

The Texas Department of Public Safety included the warning in their 2020, “Texas Domestic Terrorism Threat Assessment” (PDF).

“Although not a new movement, Involuntary Celibates (Incels) are an emerging domestic terrorism threat as current adherents demonstrate marked acts or threats of violence in furtherance of their social grievance,” the report noted. “Once viewed as a criminal threat by many law enforcement authorities, Incels are now seen as a growing domestic terrorism concern due to the ideological nature of recent Incel attacks internationally, nationwide, and in Texas.”

“What begins as a personal grievance due to perceived rejection by women may morph into allegiance to, and attempts to further, an Incel Rebellion. The result has thrust the Incel movement into the realm of domestic terrorism,” the report explained.

“The violence demonstrated by Incels in the past decade, coupled with extremely violent online rhetoric, suggests this particular threat could soon match, or potentially eclipse, the level of lethalness demonstrated by other domestic terrorism types,” the report warned.

But there is no question that Will, who left the Republican Party and is now supporting former Vice President Joe Biden, has been a blistering critic of Trump. And this week in his Washington Post column, Will not only predicts that Biden will defeat Trump on November 3 — he predicts that the election will be so devastating for Republicans that Democrats will dominate the federal government for at least a decade.

Published

President Donald Trump attacked the "Anonymous" White House official that attacked him in a New York Times op-ed and in an extensive tell-all book.

Former Homeland Security official Miles Taylor came out on Wednesday, saying officially that he was "Anonymous."

At the Phoenix Goodyear Airport, Trump told a rally crowd that Taylor was a "sleaze bag" and "This guy, in my opinion, should be prosecuted." Trump didn't seem to know what crime it was Taylor committed, but he still wanted to see the former official prosecuted for something.

Trump confessed that he was worried it was someone like "Hope Hicks, Jared Kushner, Mike Lee, or Rand Paul" who were secretly attacking him from the inside.
