What do you get when you cross the KGB with the Gestapo? Merrick Garland’s new anti-conservative SWAT team.
Garland has announced that he is putting together a force to combat domestic terrorism. No, he is not talking about antifa or BLM, he is talking about Trump supporters.
Assistant Attorney General Matthew Olsen told the Senate Judiciary Committee:
“We have 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.”
To most Americans when you talk about domestic terrorism, naturally they think back to 2020 when antifa and BLM were rioting, burning down businesses, attacking police, and making the streets unsafe for ordinary citizens.
No, the real danger to this country is not the 275 leftist riots, it is the one 2 1/2 protest in Washington DC. I think it is very brave of Garland to risk his 30% approval rating in order to go after common people.
Americans are not oblivious to the politicization of federal law enforcement. The agency has a net approval rating of -11, according to Rassmussen:
A new national telephone and online survey by Rasmussen Reports finds that 46% of Likely U.S. voters have a favorable impression of the FBI, including 15% who have a Very Favorable view of the agency. That’s down from May 2020, when 60% had a favorable impression of the FBI. Forty-seven percent (47%) now view the FBI unfavorably, including 26% who have a Very Unfavorable impression.
A plurality, 46%, agrees with Roger Stone’s statement that “a group of politicized thugs at the top of the FBI who are using the FBI … as Joe Biden‘s personal Gestapo.” Only 38% disagree. Additionally, 50% believe the president influences FBI Director Christopher Wray in his decision-making. Only 30% reported having a favorable view of Attorney General Merrick Garland in Oct. 2021 following his memo instructing the FBI to investigate parents involved in school board protests.
Meanwhile, the Taliban threatened to send 2,000 suicide bombers to Washington D.C. if the U.S. posts soldiers at the embassy in Kabul. The Iranian president also threatened “Muslims will take their martyr’s revenge” unless President Trump and former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo are put on trial for the death of General Qasem Soleimani. These warnings are issued while the nation has a wide-open southern border and thousands of unvetted Afghan refugees inside the country. Putin is likely to invade Ukraine and China is saber-rattling over Taiwan. But Jan. 6 is supposed to terrify you.
