The Democrats who are now in control of the Federal Government are exploiting the Capitol Hill riot to a level even I had not expected, using this one incident of violence as an excuse to begin a clamp down on those of us they consider to be the enemy. Can you guess who they are? This is even more despicable because there is a chance this sorry affair was perpetrated by leftists.
This is right out of the standard progressive playbook and is captured in this prophetic quote by Rahm Emanuel:
You never want a serious crisis go to waste. What I mean by that is it’s an opportunity to do things you think you could not do before.
In response to the riot the Biden administration is proposing a rather extreme crackdown on those of us on the political right. Of course they are cloaking their proposal in the usual progressive double speak. Those of us who are fluent in their deceptive use of language would have no trouble deciphering the ominous message inside their proposal, which is documented in this White House Briefing Transcript. I’ve included the full text relating to the proposal. After each paragraph I will add my analysis and some sarcastic comments.
I also have some news to share on the President’s response to domestic violent extremism. The January 6th assault on the Capitol and the tragic deaths and destruction that occurred underscored what we have long known: The rise of domestic violent extremism is a serious and growing national security threat.
Of course those of us who deal with reality, unlike those on the political left know the “violent extremists” they will crack down are those who believe in individual rights, honor the Constitution, and know the truth that presidential election was stolen from President Trump. The Democrats will ignore those who committed the vast majority of the real violence the past decade or so, their own side of the political spectrum.
The Biden administration will confront this threat with the necessary resources and resolve. We are committed to developing policies and strategies based on facts, on objective and rigorous analysis, and on a respect for constitutionally protected free speech and political activities.
What are the chances of the Biden Administration actually respecting the constitutionally protected free speech of those on the political right? Negligible at best considering the track record of the extreme leftists now controlling the Democrat Party
Our initial work on DVE will broadly fall into three areas. The first is a tasking from President Biden sent to the ODNI today requesting a comprehensive threat assessment, coordinated with the FBI and DHS, on domestic violent extremism. This assessment will draw on the analysis from across the government and, as appropriate, nongovernmental organizations.
The Biden Administration will be relying on the oh so corrupt deep state which is still way too full of Obama cronies.
The key point here is that we want fact-based analysis upon which we can shape policy. So this is really the first step in the process, and we’ll rely on our appropriate law enforcement and intelligence officials to provide that analysis.
When has the political left ever relied on actual facts? That quote about fact based analysis is laughable.
The second will be the building of an NSC capability to focus on countering domestic violent extremism. As a part of this, the NSC will undertake a policy review effort to determine how the government can share information better about this threat, support efforts to prevent radicalization, disrupt violent extremist networks, and more.
The Biden Administration will be building an infrastructure to clamp down tightly on those who are not politically in lock step with the radical political left.
There’s important work already underway across the interagency in countering DVE, and we need to understand better its current extent and where there may be gaps to address, so we can determine the best path forward.
I interpret this paragraph to mean that the Biden Administration will crackdown and harass those of us who want to share information about and educate others about the US Constitution and our founding principles. If I’m wrong about this please let me know.
The third will be coordinating relevant parts of the federal government to enhance and accelerate efforts to address DVE. This considered, an NSC-convened process will focus on addressing evolving threats, radicalization, the role of social media, opportunities to improve information sharing, operational responses, and more.
The federal government will now be working closely with the corporate tyrants who have been working overtime to silence conservatives and everyone else on the political right. That is how I interpret this last paragraph. Free speech and the Constitution mean nothing to the Biden Administration. Their earlier protestation is laughable in the extreme. When have leftists ever respected the freedom of speech of those who are not leftists?
