The Department of Homeland Security recently warned law enforcement that truck driver protests like those taking place in Canada could be coming to America, and in an interesting bit of timing that I’m sure Joe Biden will say is purely coincidental, DHS has released an advisory that said people exercising their free speech rights to oppose COVID tyranny are guilty of engaging in acts of domestic terrorism.
According to DHS, “offenders” of domestic terrorism are people who spread “misinformation” about COVID (via The Center Square):
The latest U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) terrorist advisory bulletin says Americans who express concerns about election fraud or COVID-19 restrictions could be potential threats to domestic security.
It follows a bulletin issued last August that warned that Americans who question and challenge COVID-19 vaccine mandates could be considered potential “domestic violent extremists.”
DHS’s bulletin states that Americans who seek to “exacerbate societal friction to sow discord and undermine public trust in government institutions” could be labeled as dissidents and domestic terrorists.
DHS issued its latest warning due to “an online environment filled with false or misleading narratives and conspiracy theories, and other forms of mis- dis- and mal-information introduced and/or amplified by foreign and domestic threat actors.”
I wrote about the DHS bulletin released in August 2021 and documented how government had labeled “domestic terrorists” on the list as pushers of “anti-government rhetoric,” who stood in “opposition to COVID measures.”
MUST WATCH: Homeland Security hasn't based the new "Terror Threat Alert" off of actual threats or plots… just "anti-government rhetoric" that includes "opposition to COVID measures" … aka FREE SPEECH.

Then, as now, Biden’s DHS lumped people who believe in small government and limiting its power together with real terrorists; most likely something he learned from the man he used to work for, Barack Hussein Obama. Then, as now, Biden’s DHS labeled anti-government free speech directed at COVID tyranny an act of domestic terrorism.
In the August report, DHS cited the increased use of “online forums to influence and spread violent extremist narratives and promote violent activity,” and they warned that violent extremists could exploit the easing of Covid-19 restrictions to conduct attacks.
“Extremists may seek to exploit the emergence of Covid-19 variants by viewing the potential re-establishment of public health restrictions across the United States as a rationale to conduct attacks,” the DHS advisory said, adding that “pandemic-related stressors… may contribute to more violence this year.” (emphasis mine)
In the current edition of their domestic terrorism advisory, DHS labeled lone offenders and small groups as “perceived ideological opponents” who may cause “mass casualty attacks and other acts of targeted violence” against the U.S.
“Perceived ideological opponents” is Washington politispeak for people who oppose COVID tyranny and aren’t afraid to exercise their God-given right to say so.
The Department of Homeland Security states in their domestic terrorism advisory that “any information or opinions that are considered ‘anti-government’ are considered a ‘threat’ to America’s national security,” yet it contains no reference to the anti-law enforcement ideologies of groups like Antifa and Black Lives Matter — a fact pointed out by Liberty Council.
Even though Joe Biden has been sued by multiple states for his numerous mandates, DHS continues to shift the focus away from COVID tyranny by redirecting it in the direction of domestic terrorism:
“As COVID-19 restrictions continue to decrease nationwide, increased access to commercial and government facilities and the rising number of mass gatherings could provide increased opportunities for individuals looking to commit acts of violence to do so, often with little or no warning.
“Meanwhile, COVID-19 mitigation measures – particularly COVID-19 vaccine and mask mandates – have been used by domestic violent extremists to justify violence since 2020 and could continue to inspire these extremists to target government, healthcare, and academic institutions that they associate with those measures.”
Biden is going all-in with his plan to silence anti-government free speech. Last month, his Department of Justice launched a new unit within the DOJ that will deal exclusively with domestic terrorism.
Assistant Attorney General for National Security Matthew Olsen made the announcement:
“I decided to establish a domestic terrorism unit to augment our existing approach.
“This group of dedicated attorneys will focus on the domestic terrorism threat, helping to ensure that these cases are handled properly and effectively coordinated across the Department of Justice and across the country.
“We’ve seen a growing threat from those who are motivated by racial animus as well as those who ascribe to extremist anti-government and anti-authority ideologies.” (emphasis mine)
For those planning to send me nasty messages or threats over today’s post, I’m not discounting domestic terrorism. Instead, I’m pointing out how the domestic terrorism agenda promoted by Joe Biden and his DHS is clearly biased against people who are guilty of nothing more than disagreeing with COVID tyranny and exercising their free speech right to say so.
Redefining free speech opposing COVID tyranny as an act of domestic terrorism has been official policy ever since Joe Biden took the oath of office, and with the help of the DOJ and the DHS, he is moving us ever closer to reaching his goal of turning America into a full-blown police state.
