‘Perceived grievances fueled by false narratives’
The acting secretary of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security did not directly mention the Capitol insurrectionists in the alert.
Yet the document cautioned that there was a danger of violence from anti-government extremists that were against the presidential transition and with other “perceived grievances fueled by false narratives.”
These words could very well refer to the radical right-wing militia groups powered by conspiracy theories, the same groups who tried to take over the U.S. Capitol Building. Five people died as a result of the violence.
The DHS said it was “concerned these same drivers to violence will remain through early 2021.”
