1. Actual, real-life, Domestic Violent Extremists called Black Lives Matter & Antifa, tried to burn Washington DC in the summer of 2020. Not a single arrest. Not one. Not a single FBI tweet about “help us find those arsonists who attempted to burn St. John’s church”. Nothing. pic.twitter.com/w5k0OEFZ2Y— TheLastRefuge (@TheLastRefuge2) June 16, 2021
This is saying the quiet part out loud.
“President Biden’s newly released strategy for countering domestic terrorism, like any shuffling of major national security priorities, deserves close scrutiny, as abuses in the name of keeping America safe are a sadly bipartisan tradition.
A close reading of the 30-page document reveals a remarkable omission: A clear position on whether the U.S. government requires new legal authority to successfully hunt down, prosecute, and imprison homegrown extremists. That question has been front and center since Biden took office vowing to fight back against politically motivated violence at home, like the deadly Jan. 6 Capitol riot that forced a halt to a ceremony validating his 2020 election victory. …”
The goal is to “hunt down, prosecute, and imprison homegrown extremists.” The question is whether the Biden administration needs a new domestic terrorism law to have the legal authority to do it.
Why don’t we just start labeling American citizens “domestic extremists” on the basis of their politics, hunt them down, arrest them and throw them into gulags? Wouldn’t that solve everything?
