Well, if we've said it once we've said it a thousand times.
The Democrats are using the counter-terror laws in the Patriot Act and similar policies to target their political enemies within the US.
Alexander Mayorka's Department of Homeland Security is funding an "anti-terrorism" grant program that explicitly conflates conservative Christians with Nazis.
This new Media Research Center report details how the Biden admin is actively targeting Christians, conservatives, and Republicans as if they're all Nazi fascists.
Here's a portion of MRC's summary:
Under the Trump administration, the "Targeted Violence & Terrorism Prevention Grant Program" (TVTP) was used to prevent terrorism, but it was revamped under the Biden administration and renamed to provide funding for localities to combat "all forms of terrorism and targeted violence." Instead of focusing on preventing actual violence and terrorism, the program is now being used to target the entire spectrum of the political right and Christians through "media literacy and online critical thinking initiatives" and other so-called training seminars as part of a coordinated effort to make America into a one-party system.
This is a program that the government has spent $40 million of YOUR money on.
In a memo obtained by MRC, Mayorkas said this program was a high priority. Each of the 80 grants gave universities anywhere from $85,000 to over $1 million.
Here's the "pyramid of far-right radicalization" produced by the University of Dayton for the DHS.
I love how literal Nazis are only on level 3, right above PragerU and TurningPoint.
Dayton was given the grant BECAUSE of this "work" on Domestic extremism at a conference they had.
It was part of their application!
One speaker at the conference, University of Cincinnati researcher Michael Loadenthal, presented the "Pyramid of Far-Right Radicalization," portraying it as an accurate depiction of the "modern far-right" and extremism in America.
The MRC report noted that at the same seminar, another speaker, Alexander Hinton, a member of the Rutgers University faculty who specializes in genocide, compared the Trump administration to the Khmer Rouge. The Khmer Rouge of Pol Pot's regime in Cambodia killed an estimated 1.5 million-2 million people from 1975-79.
A third speaker — Nicole Widdersheim, deputy Washington director for Human Rights Watch and former senior policy adviser to the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum Center — compared Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis proposing a volunteer civilian military force to assist the National Guard in emergencies such as hurricanes to the Nazis' Holocaust during World War II.
The DHS saw this ridiculous period, saw a speaker at the conference compare Trump to Khmer Rouge and Pol Pot, and then said "Yes! This is what we're looking for!" Then gave them $300k.
This is what your government is spending your money on. They're building a case to prosecute you, throw you in jail, and destroy your livelihood. And they're hardly hiding it.
This is a program that Trump halted for three years because it was doing similar work under Obama, then repurposed in 2019 to focus on actual terror. Then Biden came in and restored its original mission to paint Republicans as terrorists so that they could treat them as terrorists.
Once in office, Biden and his secretary of homeland security, Alejandro Mayorkas, replaced the Office for Targeted Violence and Terrorism Prevention with the new Center for Prevention Programs and Partnerships (CP3), of which TVTP is a part. According to a DHS press release from the time, "the creation of CP3 [is] … [among] the latest actions DHS is taking under Secretary Mayorkas' leadership to comprehensively combat domestic violent extremism, including violent white supremacy."
The Biden administration is pumping A LOT of money into a program that's specifically designed to conflate conservative Christians with Nazis.
Don't be shocked when they use this as evidence to put fellow Americans in jail.
