From my perspective, it doesn’t really matter what Joe Biden said last night about shots in arms, jobs, stimulus checks or rebuilding our infrastructure. When the FBI and the DOJ are acting like the NKVD in the Soviet Union or the Stasi in East Germany and targeting you for state repression on the basis of your political views, there is no other issue that comes close to that in importance.
The intelligence agencies were weaponized by the Democrats and used to undermine the Trump administration and to fabricate charges that could be used to punish everyone who worked for Trump. The feds are still going around retaliating against people who worked for Trump like Roger Stone and Rudy Giuliani. Trump himself was impeached twice by this nonsense. Also, if they are doing this to people who were as powerful as Trump’s inner circle, there is obviously nothing stopping them from doing it to ordinary citizens. We saw yesterday that the FBI was illegally using the NSA’s database to violate the Fourth Amendment rights of alleged “racially motivated domestic extremists.”
“Shots in arms” might sound like a winning message in isolation, but when that is mixed up with things like imposing a political litmus test on the military and purging people based on Heidi Beirich’s recommendations or manufacturing fake stories like “Russian bounties” to keep American troops mired in Afghanistan or the War on the Police it looks very different.
