FBI Encourages Citizens to Spy on Their Own Family to Prevent Extremism

Your Federal government is taking pages directly out of the Soviet playbook.

On Sunday afternoon the Federal Bureau of Investigation's official Twitter account urged Americans to snoop on their own family members and make sure they aren’t involved in any ‘extremism’.

The gesture from the FBI prompted comparisons to authoritarian communist regimes.

The language in the tweet, which directs the reader to a Department of National Intelligence (DNI) “booklet” about "homegrown violent extremism," was crystal clear: snitch on your friends and family.
