It’s becoming a common refrain from political pundits lately. ‘We need to tear down the FBI and start over.’ I used to think that was just hyperbolic B.S. just meant to get some clicks. Now I’m convinced that it’s completely necessary. We, as nation, need to start over. The FBI in its current form has got to go. Not only does it have the appearance of being a partisan organization and trying to effect elections, but I would also argue that they ARE doing that very thing. A federal police agency made up of unelected bureaucrats are rigging our elections. They are choosing who wins and who loses. We can all see it too. No matter the headlines and the narrative of ‘well-meaning agents at the FBI’ it’s become clear to most people that they dish out ‘justice’ when it suits them and the political party they support. A recent Rasmussen poll show that 53% percent of respondents agree with the statement: “a group of politicized thugs at the top of the FBI who are using the FBI … as Joe Biden‘s personal Gestapo.” https://www.rasmussenreports.com/public_content/politics/public_surveys/biden_s_gestapo_trump_raid_hurts_voter_trust_in_fbi
That is, how shall we say, fucked up? Now why on earth would people have such a low view of the FBI? Because they earned it. Americans are smart and we remember stuff. We remember FISA abuses. We remember spying on political candidates. We remember emails being edited to make innocent people look guilty. We remember parents being called domestic terrorists. We remember Generals being entrapped and fake kidnapping plots. We remember all kinds of shit and every day there’s something new! Some new jaw dropping piece of crap coming out of the FBI that only seems to affect one political party while benefiting the other. When the FBI ‘kills’ a story on social media about the Biden family weeks before an election? A true story. A story the FBI KNEW was true. We as a republic have a giant problem.
Now throw in the raid of a former president’s home for sensitive documents? Really? That’s what the DOJ and FBI want us to believe? Documents? Nope. Not buying it. The track record at the FBI is just too riddled with partisan bullshit. They gotta go. Dice it up into little bit. Tiny bit sized divisions. Yes, we’ll still have full time agents investigating bad guys. But they will answer to the people and not some unelected full-time bureaucrat. And along with these smaller agencies will have to come a level of transparency that will make the people at Saran wrap jealous. We need people doing the jobs that the current FBI does. We also need to know they are on the up and up. Our nation is a nation of laws. Applied equally. Without that? We’re toast. So, rip up the FBI and start over. You’ll be glad you did.
