Deputy U.S Attorney General Matt Olsen announced in front of Congress that there has been the formation of a “domestic terrorism unit.”
A former Obama NSA official, deputy AG Olsen said that he personally directed the formation of the task force.
“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,”
Olsen also proudly stated that the federal government had arrested and prosecuted more than 700 Americans, who had been at the Capitol Building on January 6th 2020.
“The Department of Justice has undertaken an effort unprecedented in its scope and complexity, to hold accountable all of those who engaged in criminal acts,” Olsen said in reference to the Capitol protests.
“We continue to methodically gather and review the evidence,” Olsen said.
The U.S is facing an “elevated threat” from domestic extremists, he later said.
“While there is no single federal crime that is labelled ‘domestic terrorism’, the criminal code does define domestic terrorism, and this definition does provide us with expanded authorities, including enhanced sentencing for terrorism offenses,” Olsen said.
He added that the department was bound by their “commitment to protecting civil liberties and our duty to ensure equal and impartial justice.”
“We prosecute individuals for engaging in violent behavior, not for their beliefs or associations,” Olsen said.
He then added that the government “would not hesitate” to prosecute those who they defines as a domestic terrorist.
Apparently, the definition of a ‘domestic terrorist’ includes concerned school parents who attend school board meetings, not happy about the curriculum.
According to emails obtained via the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), Education Secretary Miguel Cardona was the person who handed over the letter from National School Boards Association (NSBA) officials to President Biden, saying that parents who voiced their concerns were potential ‘domestic terrorists’.
At the same time, Antifa terrorists who are bent on hurting as many people as possible, continue to bully, assault or even kill, anyone who does not agree with their views. Much like the Brown Shirts of Hitler’s Nazi Germany.
But of course, there are two sets of rules. Antifa could 100 percent be defined as a terrorist group. For their political beliefs, they cause violence and mayhem wherever they go and the summer of 2020 saw America in flames, thanks to Antifa and their pals, Black Lives Matter.
On the anniversary of the Capitol riots, Garrett James Smith was caught with a backpack containing a pipe bomb and his target was a political rally being held in Florida – organized by Trump supporters. He also had a gas mask, pepper spray, smoke rockets and flammable rags.
Smith is being held on a $300,250 bond. He was charged with three counts of possession or discharge of a destructive device and one count of loitering and prowling.
According to the local Sheriff Bob Gualtieri, they were lucky Smith didn’t cause any serious harm.
“We’re fortunate in this situation that something caused Smith to flee before he ignited the explosive device and the deputies were able to apprehend him,” Gualtieri said.
And this is where we have arrived. Antifa punks are free to do as they please and school parents are labelled terrorists.
