Never before has a president used a 1930s-style background to condemn half the country in primetime. With blood-red lights and ghostly Marines encircling Biden, Thursday night's message: unity requires submission.
The president must defend the Constitution and our way of life. What happens when the president and his administration regard almost half the country as "threats to democracy" intent on "destroying democracy" to bring in "semi-fascism"? How long until the president declares tens of millions of Americans domestic terrorists if he and his advisors feel "MAGA" and America First reflect "an extreme that challenges the fundamental underpinnings of our republic"?
Biden's message was dark and contradictory. The speech wasn't aimed to unite or win over voters. While Biden said he "won't allow anything drive us apart," the address was meant to inspire fear and target his political adversaries.
The Biden administration isn't targeting "MAGA Republicans" They're targeting Republicans, Independents, Libertarians, and dissatisfied Democrats who back Obama.
"National Strategy for Countering Domestic Terrorism" was launched in June 2021. Most media, even conservative outlets, ignored it. This text contains broad language that might identify as a domestic violent extremist anyone who expresses anti-government, anti-authority emotions. Look at the dangerous progression since the document's distribution if you doubt this.
In September 2021, Education Secretary Miguel Cardona asked the National School Boards Association to examine parents who complained about mask mandates and critical race theory (CRT).
Five days later, Attorney General Merrick Garland did so. The Attorney General denied that this would target parents raising concerns, saying it would only target actual threats. DOJ whistleblowers contradict Garland's assertions, as the FBI built a new threat tag system and investigated parents.
Anyone who's read "National Strategy" won't be surprised. In Pillar 4, implementing CRT and diversity, equality, and inclusion (DEI) initiatives into education curricula is one strategy to tackle domestic terrorism long-term. Opponents of these projects should be considered threats under the "National Strategy."
The DOJ announced a "specialized" domestic terrorism section in January 2022. Very little is known about what this specialist team performs or why it's necessary given the government's tremendous powers to combat worldwide and domestic terrorism after 9/11.
Secretary Mayorkas created the Disinformation Governance Board in April 2022. DHS halted the initiative due to backlash. Last week, they declared the project has been terminated, although it may be rebranded and relaunched. Jen Psaki, the White House's former press secretary, confessed they highlight disinformation.
In May 2022, Biden accused his political opponents of belonging to "history's most extreme political organization." Extremist was a deliberate designation, and the "National Strategy" uses the words 27 times. Part of a strategy to label political opponents as domestic terrorists.
The FBI raided a previous President's residence in August 2022. Given the FBI's expanding political weaponization, many critics remain distrustful of the raid. No one can challenge the FBI's professionalism and honesty, according to Garland's 2.5-minute statement on the raid.
Biden called Bush and his supporters a "threat to democracy" last week. At a private fundraiser, Biden accused Trump supporters of "embracing political violence" and "semi-fascism."
Biden told "brave right-wing Americans" this week that they "need an F-15, something more than a rifle." Who threatens their own people with F-15s?
Allies in the media use phrases like "purge," "reeducate," "eradicate," and "deprogram" to describe republicans and Trump supporters. Self-appointed bureaucratic guardians of democracy continue to misuse their power by putting ideology over public service.
This is a systematic strategy to depict political opponents as state foes. The timing of events and darker rhetoric imply a dark epoch in American history.
Too many disregard the administration's insidious attempts to attack their political opposition. Delusional people blame midterm election rhetoric. If people had investigated the "National Strategy" a year ago, we might not be here.
If the Biden administration continues on this path, former President Trump and his followers will be labeled domestic terrorists.
