The past few Democrat administrations in the White House have a history of using Federal agencies to harass and try to shut down political conservatives in the U.S. In the Obama administration, we saw numerous stories of Obama weaponizing the I.R.S. to try to shut down pro-liberty non-profit organizations to silence dissent from that administration’s leftist political viewpoints.
We saw this trend continue in the deep state’s attempt to thwart the Trump administration’s efforts to prioritize U.S. interests instead of subjugating the U.S. to China and the socialists running the United Nations.
Now, Joe Biden has announced that his primary national security strategy has a scary focus, a focus that sounds like he is targeting you and me. Zachary Stieber writes,
President Joe Biden’s administration on Tuesday unveiled a national security strategy that focuses exclusively on domestic terrorism, naming white supremacists and militia extremists as “the most persistent and lethal threats” to America among ideologies motivating domestic terrorists.
Continuing its broad effort to combat violence from homegrown extremists, the administration published the 32-page strategy and the president vowed to both address the violence and the factors that lead to domestic terrorism.
“We cannot ignore this threat or wish it away. Preventing domestic terrorism and reducing the factors that fuel it demand a multifaceted response across the Federal Government and beyond,” Biden said in the strategy’s introduction.
While domestic terrorist attacks have been a threat to the United States for centuries, officials with the National Strategy for Countering Domestic Terrorism said, a resurgence of the homegrown violence has been seen in recent years, including in the surge of attacks against Jews and the mass shooting at a Walmart in El Paso, Texas in 2019.
Now, that all sounds fine and good to the uninformed, to low information voters. Who doesn’t want “white supremacists” and “extremists” to refrain from violence and to leave people alone?
So, what’s the problem? The problem is that the people saying that white supremacists and militia extremists are the problem are the same people who called all Trump supporters, all Republican voters white supremacists and extremists.
Never mind that Trump voters are overwhelmingly against racism of any sort and are overwhelmingly peaceful.
But you don’t see Biden saying that we need to target those “mostly peaceful” protesters who are still terrorizing large cities like Portland, Oregon. Where is the outrage? Where are the statements that the Federal government is going to combat the already existing violence happening there?
The answer is that this isn’t about combating domestic terrorism. This is about using the Federal government’s resources to silence opposition to leftist political stances. This is what Nazis and communists did all throughout the 20th Century and are still doing in the 21st Century (in the case of communists).
Be aware. It sounds like Biden just said that he’s coming for all of us.
