I’ve already seen enough from this duo.
Alejandro Mayorkas has presided over the collapse of the border.
It is clear that their goal is to undermine immigration enforcement, undermine local police departments and to purge anyone who the woke brigade labels a “domestic extremist” from serving in the government, serving in the military or serving in law enforcement. They also want Big Tech to censor the internet in order to fight “domestic extremism.” They’ve essentially shredded the Constitution.
“The Justice Department is throwing more resources into its fight against domestic terrorism and working with foreign partners and tech companies to help stem the growing threat, Attorney General Merrick Garland plans to tell lawmakers Wednesday. …
The department, Garland will say, is “deepening collaboration” with foreign countries to explore possible links between domestic violent extremists and their counterparts abroad, as well as sharing information with tech companies “to help them address the spread of domestic violent extremist activity online.” …
“In all our efforts to combat these domestic threats, the Justice Department is guided by our commitment to protecting civil liberties” Garland will say, according to his written remarks. “In our country, espousing an extremist ideology is not a crime. Nor is expressing hateful views or associating with hateful groups.” …”
“Mayorkas, asked directly by Sen. Patrick Leahy if “white supremacy extremists remain the most persistent lethal threat?” said yes.
“I do believe they, they do at this time, Mr. Chairman,” Mayorkas said. …”
“WASHINGTON — The Justice Department has begun an internal review to determine how to remove any extremists from within federal law enforcement following the arrest of current and former police officers for their involvement in the Jan. 6 attack on the Capitol, Attorney General Merrick Garland said Wednesday.
Garland, in response to a question during a Senate hearing on domestic extremism, described a review that was in its early stages and is complicated by the need to avoid violating the First Amendment rights of Justice Department employees. …
It is also potentially tricky legal ground because of the risk of intrusion on personal beliefs that are protected under the Constitution. …”
“Garland and Mayorkas said they were concerned about how disinformation and misinformation spread on social media, and Mayorkas said suchTh”false narratives” can instigate violence.
Garland said the Director of National Intelligence’s office was monitoring “sharing of information” between U.S. and European extremists. …”
“The top domestic violence extremist threat we face comes from racially or ethnically motivated violent extremists, specifically those who advocate for the superiority of the white race,” Garland added, reiterating the U.S. Department of Justice’s commitment to snuffing out these threats and prosecuting violators. …”
Let’s be clear about what they are doing here.
They are saying that there is a new caste system in this country. They want to impose a progressive litmus test on institutions. If you are classified as a “domestic extremist” by one of these agencies, you are essentially being treated as an internal enemy of the state like in communist East Germany. We’ve already seen that DHS is putting “domestic extremists” on the FBI No Fly List.
For the record, I don’t think the response from our side to the threats coming from Merrick Garland and Alejandro Mayorkas should be domestic terrorism. This would obviously play into their hands. It is what they want to happen more than anything. It has already been thoroughly discredited as a political strategy. Instead, our response to their malicious assault on our civil liberties, their censorship of the internet, their assault on the police and their assault on immigration enforcement – all of which are massively unpopular grievances which are shared by millions of people who are sick of being accused of systematic racism – should be a TOTAL MOBILIZATION against the Biden administration.
By TOTAL MOBILIZATION, I mean coming off the sidelines en masse against the Biden administration. Normally, we just tune out of this political shitshow and choose not to participate in these stupid elections (I certainly didn’t participate in the 2020 election), but now it has gotten to the point where our fundamental constitutional rights are being menaced by these people. They’re not content to leave us alone anymore like when Obama was president. They want to go beyond that to establishing a progressive dictatorship in which they can “vet” all institutions to fight “domestic extremism.”
Suppose it were the other way around. If we were censoring all progressives on the internet, weaponizing the FBI, DHS and DOJ against progressives and trying to impose a political litmus test on the military, the police and the government to weed out progressives, what would they have to say about that? What would they call that? Would the “fascism” scholars call that “authoritarianism” on CNN and MSNBC?
We get to choose our own level of political engagement. There wasn’t much of an incentive to stay engaged in the 2018 and 2020 election cycles. It is reversed now that Trump is gone and White racial attitudes have hardened and a mass audience shares our grievances against these two clowns. Merrick Garland and Alejandro Mayorkas are the top reason why I have decided to reengage and attack the Biden administration because this is what I would classify as a meaningful political difference.
