Joe Biden claims to be focused on wiping out domestic terrorism, but his definition of what constitutes a “domestic terrorist” is subject to change based on which side of the political spectrum they fall on.
We know that Joe Biden and his Department of Homeland Security (DHS) have labeled pushers of “anti-government rhetoric” — Washington politispeak for people exercising their free speech right to criticize the government — as domestic terrorists.
We know that Joe Biden and his Department of Justice (DOJ) have classified parents concerned about Critical Race Theory and the explosion of Marxist ideology being taught in public schools as domestic terrorists, prompting Attorney General Merrick Garland to create a special unit within the DOJ responsible for seeking them out and prosecuting them.
And we know that Joe Biden and his far-left allies in Congress labeled recent mass shootings as acts of domestic terrorism in order to push passage of the Domestic Terrorism Prevention Act (DTPA), a bill that criminalizes free speech. DTPA will authorize the Department of Justice (DOJ), the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), and the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) to monitor, analyze, investigate, and prosecute Biden’s definition of a domestic terrorist.
In Joe Biden’s America, however, pro-abortion domestic terrorist groups don’t fall in the same category as concerned parents and gun owners.
One of these groups calls itself “Jane’s Revenge,” a far-left extremist pro-abortion organization that firebombed a pro-life pregnancy center in Buffalo, NY (via National Review):
Pro-abortion terrorists firebombed a pro-life Christian pregnancy center in Buffalo, N.Y. on Tuesday, inflicting significant damage on the building and vandalizing the remains with their organization’s name.
Pro-abortion group Jane’s Revenge, which has developed a reputation for resorting to violence, claimed responsibility for the attack, which left glass shattered and much of the interior of the CompassCare office burned and destroyed, CBN News reported.
The arsonists left graffiti on a wall that read, “Jane Was Here.” The organization has committed multiple such incidents in the last few months, including one in which it firebombed the headquarters of Wisconsin Family Action (WFA), a pro-life group in Madison, Wis. last month. There, the terrorists left the message, “If abortions aren’t safe, then you aren’t either.”
Jane’s Revenge also admitted that it threw red paint on the front door of a crisis pregnancy center in Washington, D.C. last week, spray painting “Jane Says Revenge” on the side of the building. (Emphasis mine)
So, how did the far-left respond to these domestic terrorists? National Review explains:
“Ironically, New York’s Governor not only ignored the violence but instead earmarked $35 million in taxpayer funds to increase security at abortion clinics,” CompassCare said in a statement. “Adding insult to injury the New York legislature passed a bill investigating pro-life pregnancy centers precisely because they do not perform abortions.” (Emphasis mine)
The string of rampages by Jane’s Revenge — the group’s name is a reference to the “Jane Collective,” an underground organization in Chicago that helped women obtain abortions prior to Roe v. Wade — comes after last month’s leak of the Supreme Court draft majority opinion that would overturn the 1973 landmark decision.
Even as Jane’s Revenge continues to engage in pro-abortion terrorism, the Department of Homeland Security is preparing for more terrorist activities from pro-abortion extremists after the release of the official opinion. In an unclassified May 13 memo, DHS’s intelligence bureau is warning that threats to the Supreme Court justices, members of Congress, and other public officials, clergy and health care providers “are likely to persist and may increase leading up to and following the issuing of the Court’s official ruling.”
Jane’s Revenge issued a statement titled “Night of Rage” on May 30 encouraging pro-abortion domestic terrorists to rise up and make the state “feel our full wrath,” to make them “be afraid of us,” and to act on “whatever form your fury takes.” It concluded, in part, with these words:
Consider this your call to action.
On the night the final ruling is issued——a specific date we cannot yet predict, but we know is arriving imminently——we are asking for courageous hearts to come out after dark.
Whoever you are and wherever you are, we are asking for you to do what you can to make your anger known.
We must also say: do not wait until the verdict arrives to organize.
Make plans now. Take action now. (Emphasis mine)
It closed with this threat: “To those who work to oppress us: If abortion isn’t safe, you aren’t either. We are everywhere.”
Apparently, pro-abortion domestic terrorists are heeding the call. In addition to the Buffalo, NY attack, an Asheville, North Carolina business that provides counseling for pregnant women was also vandalized earlier this week. The group of pro-abortion terrorists broke windows and spray-painted the building with threatening graffiti quoting the threat associated with Jane’s Revenge, “If abortions aren’t safe, neither are you!,” WYFF 4 News reported.

One year ago, Joe Biden unveiled his strategy to counter the rise in so-called domestic terrorism by criminalizing free speech and establishing a foundation for building a police state to silence the voices of dissent coming from people opposed to tyranny and oppression.
“Domestic terrorism — driven by hate, bigotry and other forms of extremism — is a stain on the soul of America,” Biden said in a statement at the time. “It goes against everything our country strives for, and it poses a direct challenge to our national security, democracy and unity.”
Joe Biden and the army of leftists running the Democrat Party at the state and federal level claim to be committed to bringing an end to domestic terrorism, but as we see in their response to Jane’s Revenge firebombing a pro-life pregnancy center in Buffalo, NY, not all domestic terrorists are created equal.
