It is the normal procedure for that babbling brook of bullshit, the media and state propaganda, (usually the same thing) to tie together fundamentalists, terrorist groups and anarchists in the one category.

And these are the same anarchists who will probably be the first to go when the purges start.Read the full article HERE:
