When he isn’t making comments about little girls’ legs, Joe Biden nurtures the fiction that white male Americans who hate election fraud and support Donald Trump are terrorists. Now he is taking it as far as warning Congress of the threat.
In an address to a joint session of Congress back on April 28, Biden labeled terrorism by “white supremacists” the “most lethal terrorist threat” to the U.S. The doddering Biden initially described a changing terrorist threat from Al-Qaeda and other jihadist groups before turning to white supremacy, as reported by government-allied news service Yahoo.
“Make no mistake – the terrorist threat has evolved beyond Afghanistan since 2001 and we will remain vigilant against threats to the United States, wherever they come from. Al Qaeda and ISIS are in Yemen, Syria, Somalia, and other places in Africa and the Middle East and beyond,” Biden said in his prepared remarks. “And, we won’t ignore what our own intelligence agencies have determined – the most lethal terrorist threat to the homeland today is from white supremacist terrorism.”
During the speech to Congress, Biden slightly departed from the prepared script, saying that “white supremacy is terrorism,” echoing accusations by FBI director Christopher Wray in March before Congress.
“The problem of domestic terrorism has been metastasizing across the country for a long time now, and it’s not going away any time soon,” Wray said at the time. “We viewed it as such a critical threat that back in June 2019 we elevated racially and ethnically motivated violent extremism to our highest threat priority, on the same level as ISIS and homegrown violent extremists.”
Bishop Garrison, a senior adviser to Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin whose new job is rooting out “extremism” in the military, has made the highly extremist claim that all Trump voters are racist and has called for limiting free speech online.
In two sets of tweets reported by the New York Post, both from in the summer of 2019, Garrison went after Trump fans and donors, arguing that anyone who defended the 45th president was supporting “a racist” and “ALL his beliefs.”
