Group logos, flags, and other extremist imagery are prevalent throughout most terrorist and extremist groups. Imagery provides a means of evoking existing emotional and historical memories in addition to communicating ideas to potential recruits. Logos and symbols are often used as visual representation of groups and/or their ideology. Print, internet propaganda, tattoos, clothing and accessories, stickers, and other graphic media are the most common representations of extremist imagery. First responders need to be aware of common extremist imagery as it may indicate involvement or support for a particular domestic extremist organization or international terrorist group.

    I’d bet 20 dollars that in this paper somewhere is an organization that is not a terrorist organization, labeled as such because the organization is politically inconvenient to the establishment, even if it doesnt actually participate in the BS that the paper claims.

    Also, on a side note, it looks like this paper is buraeucrats stating the obvious yet again: people tend to form groups of like minded people, and these groups like flashy little logos.

    Nice way to waste tax dollars. Can we have a report on the best hundred ways to determine the answer to 1 + 1 next, please?

    That was an interesting logo at the end of the pamphlet with an aggressive animal and what could be a missile(s) pictured in it. No mention of what horrors that group commited though.

    Holy carp, they actually didn’t include citizen militia groups this time! I don’t know if I should smile and be happy or frown and be afraid!

    Aw heck, I guess the jackbooted thugs have to take a day off once in a while and leave the report-writing to less tyrannical bureaucrats.

    What about separation of church and state, and how that does not apply to the Trigram Pyramid all over the FIAT ass-paper you are paid with to spy on other Americans?

    What about the the Admiralty Flag being flown in our courts?

    What about the Masonic symbology in ever town and city in this country?

    Maybe you clowns should look in the mirrors when you wake up and go to bed; that is the real terrorist.
