Droney: The Department of Homeland Security now considers those opposed to Biden policies as “terror threats”


The following contains editorial content written by a retired Chief of Police and current staff writer for Law Enforcement Today.

WASHINGTON, DC- Silencing political opponents. Where have we seen that before? The Soviet Union…China…Cuba…Iraq. And now, the United States of America.

Last Friday, the Department of Homeland Security released a bulletin which warned threats from so-called “domestic terrorists” posed a significant threat to the homeland. Not Islamic terrorists, newly emboldened by Biden’s disastrous exit in Afghanistan. Domestic terrorists.

And who exactly are those so-called domestic terrorists? Journalist Jack Posobiec posted a screenshot of a graphic from NBC News:

As you can see, underneath the headline “terror threats” were the following:

  • Opposition to COVID measures
  • Claims of election fraud, belief Trump can be reinstated
  • 9/11 anniversary and religious holidays

As Posobiec noted, anti-lockdown protesters are now considered terrorists, according to the DHS.

ABC News reported Friday:

“DHS’ National Terrorism Advisory System bulletin issued Friday, warned that threats from domestic terrorists—individuals engaged in grievance-based violence—and foreign terrorists are exacerbated by the pandemic, “including grievances over public health safety measures and perceived government restrictions.”

Let’s consider this for a minute. CDC guidance has been all over the map, for example, on the efficacy of masks, especially in children. One can go back 18 months and find CDC issued guidance that would literally back any position on masks.

There is sufficient data out there which shows that masks simply do not work, and in fact could possibly be harmful, especially to children.

Yet, if you oppose having kids wear face masks for 7-8 hours per day in school, the DHS now says you are a domestic terrorist.

In other words, they are claiming through this “guidance” that roughly half the country might be considered domestic terrorists. The question is, what ever became of the First Amendment, considered by the founders to be so important that it was literally the first article in the Bill of Rights.

Let’s consider where we are at. In the beginning stages of this pandemic, we were told we needed “14 days to flatten the curve,” an effort to prevent overwhelming the healthcare system. That 14 days has turned into over 500 days.

In the meantime, businesses have been destroyed, lives have been ruined, and we have literally sacrificed a generation of our kids for a virus that has nearly a zero percent chance of adversely affecting them.

That is not opinion—that is fact.

Yet by stating that fact, backed up by science from organizations such as Johns Hopkins, somehow, we are now considered domestic terrorists.

Time was when parents were allowed—no encouraged to advocate for their children. Based on this new DHS guidance, that is now called domestic terrorism.

Breitbart News spoke to one such parent, Keri Blare from the Collierville School District in Tennessee, who told WREG in Memphis that she disagrees with the school system’s mask mandate for children. She is advocating for her children.

“We want to have our own right and have our won decision to decide to wear a mask or not,” she said. “That’s why I’m here today and that’s the right that I have to make that for my child as a recommendation.”

A registered nurse, Crystal Real in Kentucky stated regarding forced vaccinations:

“…none of us want to lose our job…the reason I came out here is because, well I’ve been a nurse for 13 years and I’ve never taken a vaccine,” she said in protest of a local hospital’s forced vaccination mandate for employees.

Does she, or the mom from Tennessee sound like “domestic terrorists?

 A lot of Americans have concerns over last November’s election. Given the sheer number of unusual circumstances surrounding that election, is it that far out of the ordinary to simply ask questions?

Is it wrong to point out a number of unusual occurrences that happened both in the lead up to, during, and after the election?

Remove President Trump from the equation altogether. Flip the script and imagine the same scenario took place, however it was Joe Biden…not Trump…who ended up on the short end.

As a matter of fact, that’s an easy jump to make…just go back to 2016, when Democrats refused to accept the fact that a flawed Hillary Clinton lost the election.

Yet, no Democrats were referred to back then as domestic terrorists. As of a few short months ago, Clinton still refused to admit that she lost that election and reverted to the “Russia collusion” boogeyman.

The US government spent two years investigating what was clearly a political hit job on President Trump under the guise of so-called “Russia collusion,” a hoax manufactured by a rogue FBI in order to secure the swamp. Yet now, people who question this year’s election are called domestic terrorists?

The question has to be asked…if Democrats indeed won the election last year fair and square, why are they opposed to looking into it? If they have nothing to hide, they should welcome any and all probes in order to prove the election results were legitimate.

Taken together, the response by Silicon Valley tech tyrants, the mainstream media and Democrats to people who question the narratives surrounding both COVID and the 2020 election is what has a lot of people losing trust in all three.

It has gotten to the point where even citing the CDC’s own guidance on platforms such as Twitter, Facebook and YouTube can still get you bounced from the platform, such is the interest in pushing a particular agenda.

While Americans are told to “follow the science,” the tyrants refused to acknowledge that science is an evolving art. Part of science is drilling through various hypotheses in order to reach a conclusion.

Take a look on what recently happened to Sen. Rand Paul, a doctor. He had a video censored by YouTube because he used facts to disprove the voodoo narrative that masks somehow prevent COVID.

Why else should some people be skeptical? Look no further than last summer’s riots in American cities. Health officials excused Black Lives Matter riots throughout the country, excusing them as being for “something bigger” than public health. Well what is it? Is COVID a deadly virus or not?

You cannot tell people it is dangerous for them to attend church services or gather with their family while excusing thousands of people burning buildings, looting businesses and assaulting and killing people.

Perhaps one of the most bizarre dictates engaged by a public official happened in New Jersey, where Gov. Phil Murphy engaged in targeted harassment of the Atillis Gym in Bryn Mawr, New Jersey.

We were told by medical “experts,” including St. Anthony of Fauci that people with comorbidities, such as obesity were at higher risk from COVID.

Yet what did Murphy and a number of other public officials do? Close down gyms, the very place where people could help to prevent one of the factors which puts people at risk to COVID.

Atillis wasn’t the only gym so targeted. The actions taken by officials such as Murphy likely put doubt into people about what this was all about. Yet, if you question that, the DHS now considers you a domestic terrorist.

Can you imagine what would have happened if Trump’s Department of Homeland Security had deemed Black Lives Matter a domestic terrorist organization?

A fact that is a hell of a lot easier to prove than claiming a mom with three kids who loves her children and wants what’s best for them is somehow a terrorist because she disagrees with COVID mandates. Pelosi would have had articles of impeachment drawn up in a heartbeat.

As much as what the DHS memo said was what it did not say…at least out loud. The last bullet shown in the NBC graphic had, as a potential terror threat, “9/11 Anniversary and Religious Holidays.”

Now, who could possibly use the 9/11 anniversary or religious holidays as a basis for a terrorist attack? Perhaps the same neanderthal-thinking cave dwellers who perpetrated the 9/11 attack in the first place?

By identifying (clearly) Trump supporters as “potential terror threats” without clearly and specifically identifying radical Islamist extremists as being a “definite terror threat” with the upcoming 20th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks speaks volumes about the mindset of this current administration.

In essence, without saying it out loud the Biden administration speaking as the Department of Homeland Security is equating liberty-loving Americans, who merely question some of the policies being implemented by the US government, with radical Islamist extremists.

One need only listen to the narrative coming from Democrats and the mainstream media about January 6 to realize that Trump supporters or even only those who have a healthy skepticism of the government are now the target.

The January 6 Capitol siege is certainly a dark day in American history…not too many people argue it wasn’t. However to equate it with the worst days in American history is absurd.

That incident has been defined as the “biggest threat to American democracy since the Civil War.” Not Pearl Harbor…not the Cuban Missile Crisis…not the September 11 terrorist attacks…no, a few hundred violent people at the US Capitol…THAT was a threat to Democracy.

A bunch of unarmed, primarily senior citizens, most of whom were there to “peacefully and patriotically” make their voices heard are held to being as serious a threat as the 9/11 terrorists.

Yet to our knowledge, not one of those arrested has been charged with insurrection or treason…not one. An overwhelming majority have been charged with the equivalent of criminal trespassing. To our knowledge, not one of those arrested has been charged with a weapons charge related to firearms. Zero.

Yet we are to believe that this incident had our republic on the brink of turning into Joe Biden’s Afghanistan.  

Not to be overly dramatic, but this latest guidance from the Department of Homeland Security is chilling. Our country was founded on the principle that people have an absolute right…a God-given right…to free speech, which includes the redressing of grievances through peaceful protest.

That includes the right to disagree with government mandates, such as wearing of masks, forced vaccinations and also the right to peacefully question election results.

How that suddenly equates to “domestic terrorism” is anyone’s guess, but it is clearly a political hit job targeting political opponents of the Democrat’s Marxist agenda.

For a hint of what this regime has in store for its political opponents, or for that matter just people who question what they are doing, look no further than what is being done to those arrested for the January 6 siege.

Held without bail, some in solitary confinement, unable to contact family or friends, some being beaten by prison guard or other inmates. This is where we have come to in the beacon of freedom, the United States of America?

Given the new guidance from DHS, how long before people who don’t wear masks, refuse to get vaccinated, or don’t pledge their allegiance to Joe Biden get locked up in the American version of a Gulag? Don’t dismiss it…that is precisely what is happening to January 6 protesters.

Time was, the US was looked up to around the world as a place where freedom reigned, where people had the right to peacefully disagree with their government. Given the current incarnation of our country, it is a wonder that anyone wants to come here. Must be all those freebies Democrats hand out.

The issue is half the American people are completely fine with being told what to do. Democrats and the mainstream media have convinced them that everything the government is doing…every draconian mandate…every unconstitutional presidential directive…is being done for their safety and security. While leftists claim that supporters of Trump are brainwashed, who are actually the ones who are brainwashed?

Fourteen days to flatten the curve…masks will go away when you get vaccinated…oops, only kidding even if you’re vaccinated you still need to mask up…you need a vaccination passport to go out to eat…it doesn’t matter if kids have a .0007% chance of getting seriously ill from COVID, they still need masks. How much exactly are the American people willing to take?

Apparently, a lot. The Biden administration has successfully scared enough people so now where people used to merely just have friendly disagreements on matters of policy or ideology, this has pitted neighbor against neighbor.

All one needs to do is to the comment section of their local Patch or Facebook and it is no longer possible to have an opinion. If you are anti-mask or have questions about the vaccine, you “want to kill people.”

For God’s sake, a school board member from a town in the Midwest last week said children going to school without masks are “murderers.” This is where we are at?

Now we have Biden’s Department of Homeland Security calling half the population possible domestic terrorists for having an opinion that differs from their own.

We actually came across something published by satire site The Babylon Bee which mocked the sheer stupidity of the DHS directive…as Rush Limbaugh used to say, mock absurdity by being absurd. Here is a list of potential “terror threats” suggested by the Bee. 

  • No pronouns in bio
  • Married with kids, works a normal job
  • Didn’t like Captain Marvel
  • Doesn’t like taxes
  • Finds Kamala Harris slightly off-putting
  • Owns a Bible
  • Shops at Walmart
  • Doesn’t triple mask
  • Wears New Balance
  • When you say “I hate Trump” they just laugh nervously and say “yeah, he he, he’s pretty crazy”
  • Homeschooled
  • Doesn’t swoon and scream with delight every time they hear the name “Obama”
  • Invites you to join a militia to invade the Capitol building and take back the government by deadly force to usher in the second golden age of Trump
  • Dislikes The Last Jedi

Absurd right? Doesn’t even begin to describe the absurdity of the Department of Homeland Security guidelines.

Chilling doesn’t even begin to describe the slippery slope we are now going down.
