On Friday, U.S. intelligence discovered “possibly legitimate and concerning” plots by al Qaeda to carry out attacks in New York, Texas, and Virginia on Monday, the day before Election Day. ISIS wants to get in some death-dealing and fucking up democracy too. ISIS, which doesn’t appear to have gotten over the “JV team” comment, has called for the “slaughter” of Americans voting in Tuesday’s Presidential election.
Terrorist monitoring group SITE, said jihadists told Muslims that “there is no difference between the Republican and Democratic parties in their policies against Islam and Muslims.” They instructed them to stay away from polling places because ISIS will “slaughter you and smash your ballot boxes.”
This comes only days after U.S. intelligence agencies warned local police to be extra vigilant because terrorists see polling places as “attractive targets for lone wolf-type attacks” by individuals motivated by violent extremist ideologies, sovereign citizen or other extremist activity.
Go vote and just be especially hawk-eyed when you do so.
