Comment: According to federal authorities and the media, peacefully attempting to influence government and restore tjhe constitution by writing letters is now considered “extremist”. This is a frightening step up the ladder in terms of the campaign to demonize any political activism as dangerous fringe behavior.

A domestic extremist group has sent letters to more than 30 U.S. governors demanding they resign, the Department of Homeland Security and the FBI said in an intelligence note.
The note, dated Monday, said the letters told the governors to vacate their posts within three days.
The FBI and DHS said there do not appear to be credible or immediate threats of violence attached to the letters.
The group behind the letters has a “Restore America Plan” that calls for the removal of any governor who fails to comply, the intelligence note said.
While DHS has no information that the removal refers to a specific plan for violence, “law enforcement should be aware that this could be interpreted as a justification for violence or other criminal actions,” the note said.
