About 200 Trump supporters and a like number of anti-Trump demonstrators gathered in Olympia, WA over the weekend to express support for and opposition to the policies of the Trump Administration. Four individuals demonstrating against Trump's policies were arrested after being identified as 'domestic terrorists' by members of the Joint Base Lewis-McChord Force Protection Division that had infiltrated the anti-Trump demonstration.
The idea that protests in opposition to the policies of the Trump Administration are a form of domestic terrorism has been a consistent theme in the assessments and daily bulletins published by the Joint Base Lewis-McChord Force Protection Division since the election in November 2016. The Joint Base Lewis-McChord Force Protection Division distributes a daily email bulletin to agencies in several states and we saw their "Opposition to Trump is Terrorism" theme echoed in a report just a few days earlier: "DES assesses that anger over the results of the 2016 Presidential election continues to be a driver of domestic terrorist violence throughout the United States - as evidenced by rioting in Portland, Oregon, following the election and violence and destruction of property in Washington during the inauguration..."
For many years now the Joint Base Lewis-McChord Force Protection Division has been illegally collecting information about citizens here in the Pacific Northwest, adding our names to antiterrorism databases, and illegally disseminating information about non-DOD-affiliated civilians in their daily bulletin. Although many of us joined in a lawsuit demanding the cessation of the illegal practices of the Joint Base Lewis-McChord Force Protection Division, those illegal activities continue to this very day, and their illegal activity is only getting worse the longer they are allowed to get away with their crimes.
According to our lawsuit [Panagacos v. Towery - https://aclu-wa.org/cases/panagacos-v-towery] Thomas Rudd, head of the Joint Base Lewis-McChord Force Protection Division, directed his employees to identify Washington and Oregon residents opposed to military activities in order to facilitate the arrest of these people without probable cause. Thomas Rudd instructed these employees to infiltrate and report on meetings, demonstrations, and private personal events and relationships of individuals in our communities, so that civilian law enforcement agencies would be able to arrest, follow, cite, detain, harass, and compile and transmit dossiers that would facilitate disruption of the local protests and demonstrations - even though those events are protected by the First Amendment.
With the arrests in Olympia on Saturday it seems that nothing has changed. The Joint Base Lewis-McChord Force Protection Division is still infiltrating political organizations, disrupting political activities and labeling anyone they disagree with as terrorists.
The Joint Base Lewis-McChord Force Protection Division is led by Thomas Rudd and his deputy Daniel Vessels. Contact the Joint Base Lewis-McChord Force Protection Division and make your voice heard. We will not be silenced by being labeled as terrorists by these evil men.
