WASHINGTON, DC — Watch out Uncle Merica, Aunt Teefa and Cousin Bubba because your politics may soon land y’all in hot water.
President Joe Biden’s administration has a plan for Americans to report their politically radicalized family, friends and co-workers to the government so that we can all be safe from domestic terrorism.
On June 15, the White House released a fact sheet detailing Biden’s national strategy for dealing with domestic terrorism, which it described as “the most urgent terrorism threat the United States faces today.”

Domestic terrorism in the past has been investigated by various alphabet agencies, and they have sometimes failed to stop acts of violence or solve high-profile cases despite their experience, funding, advanced technology and exclusive access to private information.

The president essentially yelled to these agencies, “Exit stage left!”

Completely ridiculous how big our government is. Most people have no idea! https://t.co/1GjZ35Hj7r
While not exactly defunding the alphabet agencies, the leader of the free world seems to think that recruiting untrained and potentially biased U.S. citizens to snitch without a stitch might bring about better results at a lower cost.
Domestic terrorism is a stain on the soul of our nation, and a threat to our democracy — we need to confront its rise head-on. That’s why my Administration is releasing the first-ever National Strategy for Countering Domestic Terrorism. https://t.co/MCxU4KCO6M— President Biden (@POTUS) June 15, 2021
In a conversation with reporters, a senior Biden administration official pointed out the obvious and explained the importance of stopping politically fueled violence before it begins, according to a report by Breitbart.
What's so crazy to me is that the words are violence crowd doesn't consider this rhetoric violent.— Bridget Phetasy (@BridgetPhetasy) June 10, 2021
The unnamed official reportedly said:
“We will work to improve public awareness of federal resources to address concerning or threatening behavior before violence occurs.”
"Hunter Biden used the n-word multiple times in casual conversation, text messages show"— Terrence K. Williams (@w_terrence) June 9, 2021
Casually uses the n word ? Hunter Biden is racist just like his Daddy Joe
Citing the Department of Homeland Security’s “If you see something, say something” campaign to stop radical Islamic terrorism, the official noted:
“This involves creating contexts in which those who are family members or friends or co-workers know that there are pathways and avenues to raise concerns and seek help for those who they have perceived to be radicalizing and potentially radicalizing towards violence.”

I've consistently condemned political violence of any kind, whether it happened here at the Capitol or in cities across America.

The plan is basically about some people’s perceptions.

Many of the defining abuses of the first War on Terror are being deployed now by Biden for the new domestic one:https://t.co/IdyMxHcgOr
If someone perceives another person as radical or even just potentially radical, he or she will be encouraged to report that person under the assumption that violence will erupt at some future point.

Five minutes on Twitter, Fakebook and other social media platforms will quickly turn up obvious radicals across the spectrum, left to right.
So, I've been alerted to people making fake accounts with the purpose of associating trans people and symbols with white supremacy. One of them tagged me.

However, it seems the Biden administration and big tech platforms are only focused on a very narrow band of the spectrum.
I am deeply concerned about @Twitter banning and censoring Doctors and Scientists who disagree or even dare QUESTION the unscientific policies of the paid Big Pharma stooges of Government, Main Stream Media and Tech monopolies! https://t.co/ykh79QA9vs— Rob Schneider (@RobSchneider) June 9, 2021
Patriots, conservatives and other outlets sharing inconvenient narratives and truths have been the frequent targets of political attacks, censorship and platform bans.
For example, do you remember last year how people were attacked for mentioning that COVID-19 may have leaked from the Wuhan Institute of Virology?
Jon Stewart—yes Jon Stewart—states the obvious case for why the Wuhan virus came out of the Wuhan lab. Hilarious!https://t.co/PsNs38Rurw— Dinesh D'Souza (@DineshDSouza) June 15, 2021
Have you noticed that it is now okay, after a contentious presidential election, to post and talk about the Wuhan leak as evidence increases that the virus was actually created in the lab?
What do you think of when you hear the word “laptop?”
Despite efforts by Twitter and Facebook to completely censor the bombshell New York Post story concerning Hunter Biden’s “laptop from hell”, it was the most popular political topic on those platforms, according to a report from Axios. https://t.co/YKVvyGYe6l— Paul Joseph Watson (@PrisonPlanet) October 22, 2020
You are probably reminded of Hunter Biden and New York Post’s bombshell report about his nasty laptop.
From HCQ To Hunter's Laptop: Trump Shreds Democrats Over Vindicated Bombshells https://t.co/2DjqDHgqVC— zerohedge (@zerohedge) June 13, 2021
Twitter banned New York Post from its platform for quite awhile for its own legitimate report on Hunter’s laptop contents, so how can Americans feels confident that technology companies and social media platforms will work fairly with the government?
My take: The fact that the media isn’t covering this more broadly (cc:@cnn) and Big Tech is suppressing it should deeply concern everyone. That said, based on the readily available evidence I don’t see any wrongdoing on @JoeBiden’s part (unless you count lying) #TonyBobulinski https://t.co/RSttxWNCuP— Chris (@0Toole) October 28, 2020
The Biden administration official seemed to feel confident and explained that technology companies and social media platforms would be asked to increase their “information sharing” in order to combat radicalization:
“Any particular tech company often knows its own platform very well, but the government sees things — actually, threats of violence — across platforms. They see the relationship between online recruitment, radicalization, and violence in the physical world.”
But the problem is that these companies have been consistently inconsistent in their approach to social media posts alluding to or containing violence and threats. While one side of the spectrum gets censored or shut down quickly, the other side does not.
Twitter Again Refuses To Censor Kathy Griffin's Pic Of Decapitated Trump Head https://t.co/GcLCC9q4zj— zerohedge (@zerohedge) November 4, 2020
However, we are assured to not worry because to get things up to speed, the official claimed the Department of Homeland Security would also deploy “digital literacy” and “digital fitness” programs to help combat “malicious content online that bad actors deliberately try to disseminate.”
Twitter refused to take down child porn because ‘it did not violate company policy’, sued by sex trafficking victim https://t.co/R5QrWzuija— Nupur J Sharma (@UnSubtleDesi) January 22, 2021
Does child porn on various social media count as “malicious content?”
A lawsuit was filed against Twitter because the social media company refused to take down widely shared pornographic images and videos of a teenage sex trafficking victim because an investigation “didn’t find a violation” of the company’s “policies.”
How on earth did the company rule that graphic child sex abuse videos were acceptable for posting on its platform?
Yet, other tweets related to Wuhan, HCQ, Hunter’s laptop, election results or vaccines were or are still immediately censored, and some of the posters were suspended or banned indefinitely.

The Biden administration official reassured reporters that its new strategies would remain “laser-focused” on stopping violent acts and said:
“This is a strategy that is agnostic as to political ideology or off the spectrum. What matters is when individuals take their political or other grievances and turn that — unacceptably, unlawfully — into violent action.”

The official also said the Biden administration was taking the threat of domestic terrorism seriously and would shift the focus of intelligence agencies on internal threats instead:
“We are investing many agencies of the government and resourcing them appropriately and asking our citizens to participate because, ultimately, this is really about homeland security being a responsibility of each citizen of our country to help us achieve.”
So sharing leaked IRS records is cool but reporting bombshell revelations from Hunter Biden's laptop right before the presidential election is verboten? Got it. https://t.co/GO6DooihrZ— Breitbart News (@BreitbartNews) June 11, 2021

The brief strategy, which is signed by the president, noted:
“Too often over the past several years, American communities have felt the wrenching pain of domestic terrorism. Black church members slaughtered during their bible study in Charleston. A synagogue in Pittsburgh targeted for supporting immigrants.
“A gunman spraying bullets at an El Paso Walmart to target Latinos. It goes against everything our country strives to stand for in the world, and it poses a direct challenge to America’s national security, our democracy, and our national unity.
“This National Strategy for Countering Domestic Terrorism lays out a comprehensive approach to addressing the threat while safeguarding bedrock American civil rights and civil liberties – values that make us who we are as a nation.

You’re “inciting violence.”

That’s just politics.

“Our rights and our historic liberties are an intrinsic part of what makes America strong. So this Strategy is narrowly tailored to focus specifically on addressing violence and the factors that lead to violence – violence that violates the law, threatens public safety, and infringes on the free expression of ideas.
“We cannot ignore this threat or wish it away. Preventing domestic terrorism and reducing the factors that fuel it demand a multifaceted response across the Federal Government and beyond.

“This is a project that should unite all Americans. Together we must affirm that domestic terrorism has no place in our society. We must work to root out the hatreds that can too often drive violence.

“And we must recommit to defend and protect those basic freedoms, which belong to all Americans in equal measure, and which are not only the foundation of our democracy— they are our enduring advantage in the world.”
Regarding the Jan. 6 riot at the Capitol building, the public and U.S. politicians are asking important questions now as more documents and video footage emerge that suggest there might be more than meets the eye with this situation.

Congressman Matt Gaetz drafted a letter to FBI Director Christopher Wray on Tuesday that requested his agency disclose the role and involvement of FBI operatives at the Capitol building on Jan. 6.
On Wednesday, even Russian President Vladimir Putin had questions about the Jan. 6 riot and questioned the persecution and imprisonment of hundreds of people who were at the Capitol building that day.
It seems things might be getting interesting soon.

70 people were detained right after this event and 30 of them are still detained and nobody knows why and for what reason – because no official authority in the US informed anybody about that.
