From 2021, but still interesting on the use of literature to help radicalize -- this from Central Florida's Intelligence exchange, via publicintelligence.net
This bulletin was created by the Central Florida Intelligence Exchange (CFIX) to provide situational awareness regarding the use of literary propaganda used to drive black racially and ethnically motivated extremist (BRMVE) narratives in present-day America ... The CFIX recognizes that Americans have constitutionally protect ed rights to assemble, speak, and petition the government . The CFIX safeguards these first amendment rights, and reports on only those activities where the potential use of rhetoric and/or propaganda could be used to incite individuals to carry out violent or criminal acts ... Literary propaganda utilized for ideological references by subscribers of racially motivated black extremism continues to be a driving motivator seen on social media platforms live-st reams. As a result, BRMVEs have turned to literary authors from years past and present-day America to use writings as a blueprint for today’s ideological responses to the nation’s plight as seen through network television lenses ...

Posting links to news agency articles about contentious US domestic political issues is close to worthless.

Republicans blocked the Democrats' "domestic terrorism bill" and Democrats blocked the Republicans' "school safety bill". It helps to understand the politics, and also to look into what the bills actually propose (ie. the inevitably present "poison pill" long-term agenda points) instead of what the headlines describe.

Unfortunately just about every Bill these days continue to have these poison poll riders.
The reason the You can't kick puppies Bill failed to pass was because of the rider authorizing live babies as pistol targets Bill was tacked on.

Like Canada's omnibus bills ...

... bang on - gotta spot the "what was it they were voting AGAINST?" bit. Again, like omnibus bills here.

Key findings from new think tank report: Canada can do better on designating far-right terrorist groups ....
  • As of July 2022, Canada has listed nine entities in Canada as terrorists, all of which can be broadly categorized as belonging to the violent far-right movement.
  • Canada’s listings process has three levels of effect in Canada: operational effects (and largely financial); support effects (such as enabling investigations and analysis); and signaling effects that inform the Canadian public about shifts in terrorism threats.
  • Canada’s process also has potential unintended consequences, such as the possibility of individuals being “de-risked” by their bank and to serve as a catalyst for action for a radicalized individual suddenly cut off from the financial system.
  • Canada’s listings were unilateral, although some countries have subsequently listed, designated or proscribed similar groups.
  • In Canada, as elsewhere, there is little concrete evidence of the effectiveness and outcomes of listing terrorist entities or information suggesting that these listings are useful for law enforcement.
Recommendations
  1. Canada should work with partner countries to coordinate the designation or listing of entities. While unilateral listings have some desired outcomes (such as signaling) that will be of interest to policy makers, they should work with partner countries to coordinate proscription for reater impact. This will help prevent groups, movements, individuals, and entities from engaging in jurisdictional arbitrage, essentially taking advantage of states with weaker or non-existent proscriptions.
  2. Canada should share information on Canadian listed entities with partner states, and in particular the United States, to facilitate the designation process. Canada should be open to supporting the United States, should it choose to designate foreign branches of US-domiciled terrorist entities, such as the “Canadian Proud Boys” or the “Canadian Three Percenters”.
  3. Canada should increase transparency around how it chooses groups for listing, how it prioritizes them within its listing process, and share more information in the public designation. These improvements would help reduce the appearance of politicization of these decisions and enhance the signaling effects of the listings regime.
  4. All states should establish metrics to assess the implementation and impact of sanctions or designations and encourage international sanctions regimes to also establish these metrics.
  5. When financial entities in Canada continue to provide financial services to listed terrorist entities, or websites providing services to terrorist entities, Canadian law enforcement should liaise with the companies in question, consider terrorist financing criminal charges, and if or when those services are disrupted by these initiatives, issue a public statement to encourage greater adoption and compliance with the law.

So "can do better" translates to "widen the net and make the holes much smaller"? How are we doing identifying left wing extremist groups? Nothing to improve on there, I'd warrant.
