US Department of Security warns of possible escalation of violence in August

The US Department of Homeland Security has warned state and local authorities about a possible increase in calls for rallies and acts of violence linked to election-related conspiracy theories.

In the presence of threats to carry out these acts, the Department of Homeland Security has issued this public security notification to reach law enforcement agencies throughout the country and thus prevent violent demonstrations from taking effect, reports the US network. , CNN.

“Homeland Security is releasing reports of a growing but modest level of Internet activity calling for violence in response to unfounded allegations of fraud related to the 2020 elections,” the Department reported, according to a police source who has had access ABC News.

However, this threat does not have a concrete basis, but it does occur in a context of resurgence of claims about electoral fraud promoted by important figures close to former US President Donald Trump.

“As the public visibility of these narratives increases, we are increasingly concerned about calls for violence. Reports indicate that the timing of these activities may occur during August 2021, although we lack information on specific plots or planned actions.” , is explained in the document.

In this context, a spokesman for the Department of Homeland Security explained in a statement that the agency “regularly shares information about the environment of greatest threat with federal, state, local, tribal and territorial officials”, in order to “ensure security.” of all these communities scattered throughout the United States.

Thus, National Security is concerned that the ‘lone wolves’ and other small groups of people may see these fraud narratives as a justification for acting violently, since part of this discourse that is disseminated on the Internet is based on the assault to the Capitol on January 6.
