The activist said the FBI found a list in the Idaho man’s home with her name on it. Alicia Garza, the co-founder of the Black Lives Matter movement, revealed on Twitter that she received a visit from the Federal Bureau of Investigation on Friday (Oct. 23) who informed her of a possible plot against her by a man they believe has ties to white supremacist groups. The activist took to Twitter to share her experience, and said the FBI agents arrested the Idaho man but informed her that she was a potential target after they saw her name on a list at the man’s house. “The FBI visited my house today. They arrested a man in Idaho on weapons charges who they believe was affiliated with white supremacist groups,” Garza tweeted. “They found my name on a list in his home, alongside others.” (…) She later shared an article about right-wing agitators who were found to be responsible for burning a Minnesota police precinct during George Floyd protests earlier this year. “More of this needs to be told. Again, your President and his people are putting our lives in danger,” Garza shared. “Meanwhile, they fail to hold accountable people who are ACTUALLY committing terrorist acts.”

As we get closer to Election Day, more reports of planned, executed, and nearly-executed violence at the hands of white supremacists keep barrelling in. Deeply insecure white people with weapons have been targeting everyone from Black church-goers and the governor of Michigan, to even their police enablers in Minneapolis. Now news has come that these thugs may have set their sights on Alicia Garza, one of the three Black women who founded the Black Lives Matter hashtag and corresponding movement. On Friday, Garza revealed on Twitter that the FBI found her name on a list in the home of a man in Idaho who they recently arrested on weapons charges. She was apparently one of other potential would-be targets of the unnamed culprit, who the FBI believes was working with white supremacist groups. “I’m okay y’all, but this shit is not okay,” said Garza. “This is why the President is so dangerous.” She pointed to Trump’s ratcheting up of the kind of racist and gender-based violence that is already plaguing this year’s selections and is already putting the life of people like her life danger.
