The Biden regime is now linking opposition to its dystopian political agenda to terrorism. Yesterday, the Department of Homeland Security issued a National Terrorism Advisory System (NTAS) Bulletin warning of a “heightened threat environment across the United States.” What is remarkable about this warning is that DHS also said that department “does not have any information to indicate a specific, credible plot.”
So if DHS does not have any intelligence to support this warning, why did they issue it? According to the bulletin, the department is:
concerned that individuals frustrated with the exercise of governmental authority and the presidential transition, as well as other perceived grievances and ideological causes fueled by false narratives, could continue to mobilize a broad range of ideologically-motivated actors to incite or commit violence.
DHS went on to specify anger over COVID-19 restrictions, the 2020 election results, and opposition to [illegal] immigration as drivers to the increased potential of violence. In other words, the Biden regime is now saying that political views of Trump voters have turned them into violent extremists.
To give its timing of this ‘warning’ a facade of credibility, the DHS linked this ideological discontent to the the violent riots that have occurred recently. The riots that have occurred in Portland and Seattle in the past week, however, were done by far-left Antifa and BLM extremists, not by Trump supporters. This is classic disinformation were ‘facts’ are twisted to justify state-sponsored propaganda.
Now that DHS has equated Trump supporters to domestic terrorists, we can expect the Biden regime to use it as a justification to suppress its political opponents. White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki told the press:
The rise of domestic violent extremism is a serious and growing national security threat. The Biden administration will approach this threat with the necessary resources and resolve.
Psaki’s statement follows former CIA Director John Brennan preview last week how the Biden regime will use the threat of domestic terrorism to mobilize the nation’s law enforcement and intelligence agencies to root out its political opponents:
I know looking forward that the members of the Biden team who have been nominated or have been appointed, are now moving in laser-like fashion to try to uncover as much as they can about what looks very similar to insurgency movements that we’ve seen overseas, where they germinate in different parts of a country, and they gain strength, and it brings together an unholy alliance, frequently, of religious extremists, authoritarians, fascists, bigots, racists, nativists, even libertarians. … And so, I really do think that the law enforcement, Homeland Security, intelligence, and even defense officials are doing everything possible to root out what seems to be a very, very serious and insidious threat to our democracy and our republic.
How far will they take this? Former congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard (D-Hawaii) on Sunday warned that Brennan’s definition of domestic terrorism will be stretched to target anyone who opposes the current government:
What characteristics are we looking for as we are building this profile of a potential extremist, what are we talking about? Religious extremists, are we talking about Christians, evangelical Christians, what is a religious extremist? Is it somebody who is pro-life? Where do you take this?
You start looking at obviously, have to be a white person, obviously likely male, libertarians, anyone who loves freedom, liberty, maybe has an American flag outside their house, or people who, you know, attended a Trump rally… A targeting of almost half the country…
