SplinterNews  The Texas Tribune reported today that John Guandolo—an ex-FBI agent was brought in to conduct trainings on terrorism for Texas police officers.

From the newspaper:
Earlier this month in San Angelo, the anti-Islam Guandolo conducted one of his day-long seminars, “Understanding the Jihadi Threat to America.” A flier for the program said it would put “terrorist attacks into perspective” and “identify specific jihadi threats in Texas.”
The program — which terror-linked Muslim  advocacy groups (like CAIR) say promotes racial (What ‘race’ is Islam?) and ethnic profiling — qualified as continuing education for Texas law enforcement officers, who must take 40 such hours every two years.

According to the Tribune, Guandolo started his training company “as a way to combat what he believes is an attempt by Muslim groups to overthrow the U.S. government and implement Islamic law.” Guandolo is described by the totally discredited Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) as an “anti-Muslim activist.”
On Monday, the George Soros-funded far left wing alleged ‘hate group-tracking’ SPLC and Muslim Advocates sent a letter to the Texas state agency that oversees officer training asking them to rescind the credit hours earned for attending Guandolo’s session, the Tribune reported.

. As the organization also documented, he has previously claimed mosques “do not have a First Amendment right to do anything,” that the Muslim Brotherhood front group ‘Muslim Student Association’ exists to “recruit jihadis,” and that Muslim Americans have purchased convenience stores in preparation for “a jihad here in the United States.”
In March, Guandolo was rebuked by Southwest Airlines for tweeting a picture of a TSA agent with a beard.
According to the Tribune, Guandolo’s website contains a video where he claims “suit-wearing jihadis come after us all the time,” among other expressly anti-Islam videos across the internet.
Texas has something of a ‘bad’ reputation on this front: Conservative fear-mongering about Sharia law creeping into the U.S. often finds a sympathetic audience in Texas. This would seem to be supported by the fact that the Texas Commission on Law Enforcement sent an observer to one of Guandolo’s trainings in response to criticisms about their content, and ruled that they “observed no concerning material that would cause reason to deny continuing education hours for law enforcement attendees,” according to the Tribune.
Good job, Texas! (Yes, indeed, great job!)
