COINTELPRO Redux: FBI Entrapment of Muslims
Thu April 8, 2021 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm EDT
On April 8th, at 7pm, we will explore FBI entrapment schemes of Muslims. In the aftermath of 9/11, the FBI conducted blanket surveillance of Muslims throughout the US. Although this blanket surveillance violated our Fourth Amendment rights, it failed to produce any “terrorists.”
Failing to find “terrorists” through their mass surveillance, the FBI moved on to manufacturing terrorism. The FBI located Muslim boys and young men and targeted them with what are essentially entrapment schemes. The prime targets of FBI entrapment were Muslim boys and young men who suffered from mental illness, poverty, loneliness, unemployment, lack of social skills, autism, or individuals who were otherwise somehow marginalized from larger society. The FBI sent undercover agents or informants (many of whom were promised reduced sentences for unrelated crimes) to befriend disenfranchised young Muslims with promises of money, friendship, purpose, or some other desirable outcome. Join our 4/8/21 program to learn more.
Through virtually infinite government resources — funded by our tax money — the FBI entrapped and imprisoned innocent Muslims, shattering families and destroying lives. Not only does our own government destroy innocent lives with our tax money, they congratulate themselves afterwards with glowing press releases, press appearances, job promotions, bonuses, and increased funding for their agency. Join our program at 7pm on April 8th, with the Coalition of Civil Freedoms, to learn more about the cruel, sadistic FBI entrapment of Muslims, and what we can do to stop it.
