The Domestic War on Terror rollout reads almost exactly like the original. Same calls for budget increases and expanded powers, same theme of organized transnational threats all around us, same surveillance state endgame. https://t.co/QoNECX06dl— Matt Taibbi (@mtaibbi) June 15, 2021
If a news organization hiring the former Director of the CIA to shape the news and constantly heap praise on the power, strength and wisdom of the Noble Leader isn’t State TV, what is?pic.twitter.com/2lhoq2tWu2— Glenn Greenwald (@ggreenwald) June 16, 2021
As I said in January, civil liberties is now my top issue.
While it is true that Donald Trump and the Republicans suck, we can’t ignore the fact that the Biden administration is essentially declaring war on everyone who can be swept up into a dragnet of broad categories like “far right” and “white supremacist” and “domestic extremist.”
The tyrant Joe Biden has essentially declared that your constitutional rights and civil liberties are null and void and that he is establishing a progressive dictatorship. You are an “enemy within” and less than a citizen. Unlike “trans women,” you are not fit to serve in the military, law enforcement or the government. You are a potential “racially or ethnically motivated violent domestic extremist.” The “intelligence community” has concluded that some people are almost guaranteed to lash out this year because of “perceived government overreach.” DHS said this would happen on March 4th when QAnon was expected to invade the Capitol and again on the 100th anniversary of the Tulsa riot in May.
Sure, the same people who say with a straight face that “the border is closed” will also insist that they are only focused on violence, not ideology, as the FBI manufactures plots and crimes to entrap the dimwitted and knocks on your door. They will insist that “free expression” is being protected on the internet while simultaneously describing private internet platforms as the new “front lines” in their Domestic War on Terror and pushing for draconian censorship. They will insist that all citizens are entitled to “equal protection of the laws” while spying on the Trump campaign on behalf of the Democrats and while Black Lives Matter and Antifa are free to engage in nationwide riots without any consequences.
The “far right” is the enemy. The police are the enemy. That’s the message that has been sent loud and clear by the Biden administration. We don’t get to pick and choose our enemies. We’ve already been cast in that role. To be sure, the police never asked to be villainized by Merrick Garland and the corporate media, but nevertheless that is the narrative of the political establishment and the policy of the Biden administration. White people are the “domestic terrorists.” When black people engage in racially motivated domestic terrorism like over the weekend in Columbus, GA, it is ignored because it is not a “story about race in America” that “journalists” want to publicize. When blacks like Michael Brown attack the cops and get shot, the media lies and twists the facts in service of social justice ideology.
The official narrative and policy of the Biden administration is that White America is an oppressor race and should be discriminated against on racial grounds in order to promote “equity.” White America is guilty of systematic racism and oppression of BIPOC people. The facts are irrelevant. It doesn’t matter that every single institution in our society including the Southern Baptist Convention is formally committed to systematic antiracism. White people as a race are the villain in woke progressivism.
The last thing that anyone should do is fall into their trap, throw away their lives and lash out. This is exactly what they want to happen. Instead, we should keep calm, capitalize on this and make a political issue out of it. Clearly, the Biden administration and the Deep State loathe White people. They do not believe that White people are entitled to the same rights and liberties as everyone else in this country. This is a simple message which we should hammer and it is one that is certain to resonate in this political environment when “experts” and institutions are already broadly distrusted.
