VIDEO PROOF THAT I AM ON A NO-FLY LIST: pic.twitter.com/TajBPNroH3— Nicholas J. Fuentes (@NickJFuentes) April 27, 2021
The government putting citizens on No Fly Lists for their political views is a major issue and all freedom loving Americans should want answers and transparency at a minimum. You don’t have to agree with Nick Fuentes to feel this way. They can do it to anyone. You could be next. https://t.co/vTUPixD8uk— Matt Walsh (@MattWalshBlog) April 28, 2021

As I have pointed out several times now, the civil liberties issue is the top reason why I have become so harshly critical of the Biden administration. If the federal government is labeling you a “domestic extremist” and ordering the FBI to treat you like a criminal on the basis of your political views, who cares how much money Joe Biden spends on infrastructure when you can’t even catch a flight?
I’ve pointed out several times now that the Biden administration had been talking about doing this. In my podcast with Robert Stark, I brought up Joe Biden’s budding police state as the issue which had the most potential to mobilize populist voters to come out in force in the 2022 midterms.
“In an intelligence report delivered to Congress last month, the administration labeled white supremacists and militia groups as top national security threats. The White House is also discussing with members of Congress the possibility of new domestic terrorism legislation and executive orders to update the criteria of terrorism watch lists to potentially include more homegrown extremists. …
One strategy is to analyze federal travel data to trace the patterns of possible militia members and extremists, especially as American groups increasingly establish connections to Europe, the official said. Members of the groups can then be added to so-called no-fly lists, he said. …”
What is an “extremist”?
Who decides what is an “extremist”?
“The Department of Homeland Security is considering monitoring the travel of domestic extremists and expanding its use of the No Fly List, law enforcement sources told POLITICO.
The discussions are part of the Biden administration’s strategy of treating domestic terror as a national security threat, and not just a law enforcement problem. They’re also part of broader conversations in government about how to use tools developed for the Global War on Terror to combat domestic extremism. And, if past is prologue, the approach could prove politically contentious. …
There have also been discussions about putting suspected domestic violent extremists — a category that includes white supremacists — on the FBI’s No Fly List, the official said. When suspected extremists travel internationally, officials may be more likely to question them before they pass through customs and to search their phones and laptops. …
The week after January 6, a top FBI official said the Bureau was “actively looking at” adding the names of Capitol attackers to the No Fly List. And the week before Inauguration Day, the head of the TSA said the agency was working “to ensure those who may pose a threat to our aviation sector undergo enhanced screening or are prevented from boarding an aircraft.” His statement did not mention the No Fly List.
According to the officials who spoke to POLITICO, conversations about domestic extremism and the No Fly List aren’t just limited to people who attacked the Capitol on January 6. …”
I won’t comment on whether this is what happened to Nick Fuentes.
Regardless of my views on Nick Fuentes, this is something that I have been very concerned about for several months now. According to Politico, there was talk in Joe Biden’s DHS about putting people on the FBI No Fly List who had nothing to do with the Capitol Siege simply on the basis of their politics.
By my count, the same people who call us “fascists” and “authoritarians” reserve the power to openly do the following things to us:
- Have Amazon digitally burn books
- Ban people who they label “domestic extremists” from serving in the U.S. military
- Ban people who they label “domestic extremists” from serving in law enforcement
- Demonize all White people on the basis of their race while calling them “racists”
- Create a surveillance state of creepy hall monitors to dox people who have politically incorrect opinions
- Censor the internet to deplatform their domestic political opposition
- “Cancel” people by forming social media lynch mobs to hound them out of their jobs and punish them for having politically incorrect opinions
- Add people who are labeled “domestic extremists” to the FBI’s No Fly List
- Use the concentrated power of multinational corporations to bully governors and state legislatures into overturning legislation supported by voters
- Weaponize the FBI and DOJ against their domestic political opposition
- Cheer on Black Lives Matter and Antifa when these groups engage in serial mob violence on behalf of the political establishment and look the other way when this happens
If we were doing all of these things to them, what would they call that? What would the “fascism” scholars on CNN and MSNBC have to say about people like us using these tactics?
