The group of anarchists even has a name; the National Liberation Militia. And their planned ambush also has a name; the “Halloween Revolt.”
At least according to the New York Post, which broke the story Monday, claiming it received its information from an FBI press release.
However, not only is there no mention of this group on the FBI’s official website or no mention of the news on the FBI’s Facebook page, which they update frequently, there is no evidence anywhere this group even exists.
No Facebook page. No Youtube channel. And no mention in any prior news stories.
However, if you do a search for the National Liberation Militia on FBI.gov, you get absolutely nothing.
For an anarchist group with such a catchy, yet contradictory name, and such an ambitious, yet imminent plan, you would think they would market themselves more effectively.
So either the New York Post is completely making the story up or one of their FBI sources is feeding them a bullshit tip knowing they would never question its authenticity.
The bottom line is this, which is obvious to any of us not working for the mainstream media. Anytime there is a surge in police violence as we’ve seen in recent weeks, there will be an attempt at damage control.
