The Biden administration should prepare for a possible wave of internal rights terrorist attacks– including bombs, drones and shooters – aimed at Big Tech headquarters and media, a counterterrorism expert warned.

Dr. Allan Orr, a counterterrorism and insurgency specialist, believes that the United States may be turning dangerously toward insurgency.

If Biden tries to control and suppress gun rights and the Second Amendment, Dr. Orr said it would be a “fait accompli” that could trigger a backlash.

“The United States right now is on the brink of insurgency and civil war,” said Dr. Orr. nine.com.au.

“I think for the next four years, you will see attacks on Twitter, you will see attacks on Facebook, you will see attacks at Google headquarters, and you will see attacks on CNN. “

Big Tech has faced some criticism for de-platform Donald trump, which has increasingly received support from far-right groups and white supremacists.

There is real potential, Dr. Orr predicted, for the far right and the radical left to collide.

The far right tended to be more “technically capable” with its attacks, Dr. Orr said.

“So what they are going to see is more shelling and active shooters.”

Dr. Orr said right-wing terrorists were well prepared to employ “innovative thinking” in the attacks.

A growing distrust of the media among the far-right, combined with a perceived attack on free speech, could motivate some individuals or groups to target news organizations, Dr. Orr said.

“When all of that is put together, battle lines are drawn and these people can take it into their own hands.”

Dr. Orr said that it was dangerously wrong to simply label people who riots in the United States Capitol as “Trump supporters” and that doing so would create blind spots in the fight against terrorism.

“They have been called Trump sympathizers, [but they’re] they are not really Trump supporters. What they are are conservative. “

That “marginalized” group, Dr. Orr said, “feels they can’t trust the media, they feel they can’t trust the incoming government.

“The problem is that the United States has become so polarized.”

Security in Washington DC is at an all-time high for Biden’s inauguration tomorrow.

Twelve members of the Army National Guard have been removed from their inauguration duties as part of the security investigation process.
