DHS Memo Calls Free Speech A Domestic Terrorism Threat — No, This Is Not Satire

The bulletin listed “mis- dis- and mal-information” as a domestic terrorism threat. Here’s why that’s incredibly dangerous.

The Department of Homeland Security is concerned that the spread of information that disagrees with the current accepted narrative on <insert issue here> could “undermine public trust in government institutions to encourage unrest” and cause violence.

What exactly do they mean by “mis- dis- and mal-information” which they have given the acronym “MDM”? Simple — anything that goes against the government narrative whether its intent was to deceive or not.

That’s a helluva thing to suggest after the past two years.

Let’s just use COVID as an example because the DHS memo does, “For example, there is widespread online proliferation of false or misleading narratives regarding unsubstantiated widespread election fraud and COVID-19.”

We’re now seeing the things that were labeled as “conspiracy theories”, MDM a few months ago with regard to the pandemic are now becoming mainstream talking points from the COVID doom-and-gloomers now that Biden is President and the midterms are around the corner.

For example, here are things that were considered MDM in 2020 and most of 2021:

  • airborne transmission of the virus
  • the vaccines are “safe and effective” at preventing illness and transmission
  • the government would impose vaccine mandates
  • vaccine passports
  • therapeutics like Ivermectin, Fluvoxamine, and Hydroxychloroquine work
  • social distancing
  • plexiglass barriers do anything
  • cloth masks don’t stop the spread of the virus
  • the virus may have leaked from a lab in Wuhan, China
  • natural immunity from infection provides better protection than vaccines
  • masking children is a bad idea
  • lockdowns have secondary negative effects
  • herd immunity

Check out the Orwellian language used in the summary of the briefing memo:

The United States remains in a heightened threat environment fueled by several factors, including an online environment filled with false or misleading narratives and conspiracy theories, and other forms of mis- dis- and mal-information (MDM) introduced and/or amplified by foreign and domestic threat actors. These threat actors seek to exacerbate societal friction to sow discord and undermine public trust in government institutions to encourage unrest, which could potentially inspire acts of violence. Mass casualty attacks and other acts of targeted violence conducted by lone offenders and small groups acting in furtherance of ideological beliefs and/or personal grievances pose an ongoing threat to the nation. While the conditions underlying the heightened threat landscape have not significantly changed over the last year, the convergence of the following factors has increased the volatility, unpredictability, and complexity of the threat environment: (1) the proliferation of false or misleading narratives, which sow discord or undermine public trust in U.S. government institutions; (2) continued calls for violence directed at U.S. critical infrastructure; soft targets and mass gatherings; faith-based institutions, such as churches, synagogues, and mosques; institutions of higher education; racial and religious minorities; government facilities and personnel, including law enforcement and the military; the media; and perceived ideological opponents; and (3) calls by foreign terrorist organizations for attacks on the United States based on recent events.

This is an attempt by the Biden-Harris regime to crackdown on free speech. It’s a blatant violation of Americans’ First Amendment rights.

Kim Iverson breaks it all down on The Hill’s news show “Rising”:

We should have seen this coming. The Biden-Harris regime has been quick to call anyone who disagrees with them racists, bigots, and terrorists.

You don’t support the multi-million dollar grifting machine known as Black Lives Matter because your store was looted then burned to the ground in the 2020 “Summer of Love”? You’re racist.

Worried that the thousands of Afghan refugees that came into the country after Biden bungled the withdrawal haven’t been properly screened? You’re an Islamophobe.

You don’t want an alternate history about the founding of the United States that has been debunked by historians taught in schools? You’re racist.

Concerned about securing the southern border and that people with COVID are being quietly flown into different states under the cover of night? You’re racist.

Are you concerned that the way that the Democrats changed the rules for the 2020 election may have caused election fraud in certain jurisdictions? You’re an insurrectionist.

Don’t like what your school board is doing instead of educating your children? You’re a domestic terrorist.

Don’t like mask mandates and vaccine passports? Another way you’re a domestic terrorist.

Do you think that people should be judged on the content of their character and not on the color of their skin? Then you’re a bigot.

The memo states, “violent extremists inspired by a range of grievances and ideologies continue to target crowded venues traditionally perceived to be soft targets, such as commercial and publicly accessible facilities, public gatherings, certain government and state facilities, and houses of worship.”

Huh. So was it “disinformation” that caused the BLM supporter to drive through the Christmas parade in Waukesha, Wisconsin days after Kyle Rittenhouse was found not guilty? Because if that’s the case, then perhaps they should be looking at the Corporate Media hacks that uncritically repeat the leftwing talking points of the regime.

Entrepreneur and outspoken critic of the vaccines, Steve Kirsch, posted a fantastic article on his Substack giving DHS a list of individuals and groups that should perhaps be looked at and the reason why they should be examined. Here’s just a small section of his list:

  • President Joe Biden
  • CDC Director Rochelle Walensky
  • NIAID Director Anthony Fauci
  • US Surgeon General Vivek Murthy
  • Bill Gates
  • YouTube
  • Facebook
  • Twitter
  • LinkedIn
  • All “fact-checkers”

I’d also add Pfizer CEO Albert Bourla who insisted that the Phase 3 trial showed that the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine was “100% effective at preventing COVID-19 cases”,  the CDC as an organization for refusing to admit for months that the virus was airborne, and the FDA for approving the Pfizer vaccine in 3 months, but refusing to release the documents that they used to approve them until 2097.

They should all be investigated for spreading “disinformation” that caused distrust in government institutions.

This DHS memo basically says that the government can now consider you a “domestic terrorist” simply for dissenting.

This Biden-Harris administration has become the authoritarian regime that the Corporate Media falsely claimed that the Trump administration was.

It’s pretty clear that this administration hates you and they want to silence you because you disagree.

Biden said that the 2020 election was the “Battle For the Soul of the Nation” and it looks like that’s the one thing that he’s ever gotten right.

Psalms of War: Prayers That Literally Kick Ass is a collection, from the book of Psalms, regarding how David rolled in prayer. I bet you haven’t heard these read, prayed, or sung in church against our formidable enemies — and therein lies the Church’s problem. We’re not using the spiritual weapons God gave us to waylay the powers of darkness. It might be time to dust them off and offer ‘em up if you’re truly concerned about the state of Christ’s Church and of our nation.

Also included in this book, Psalms of War, are reproductions of the author’s original art from his Biblical Badass Series of oil paintings.

This is a great gift for the prayer warriors. Real. Raw. Relevant.
