This is pretty hardcore.
Even in communist countries, they didn’t just openly tell people to spy on everyone around them.
President Joe Biden’s administration announced their plans to create ways for Americans to report radicalized friends and family to the government, in an effort to fight domestic terrorism.
In a conversation with reporters, one senior administration official explained the importance of stopping politically fueled violence before it started.
“We will work to improve public awareness of federal resources to address concerning or threatening behavior before violence occurs,” the official said.
The official cited the Department of Homeland Security’s “If you see something say something” campaign to help stop radical Islamic terror as a domestic possibility.
“This involves creating contexts in which those who are family members or friends or co-workers know that there are pathways and avenues to raise concerns and seek help for those who they have perceived to be radicalizing and potentially radicalizing towards violence,” the official said.
Biden began his presidency with a stark warning in his inauguration speech about the “rise in political extremism, white supremacy, domestic terrorism that we must confront and we will defeat.” On June 1, Biden described the threat from “white supremacy” as the “most lethal threat to the homeland today.”
The Biden administration said it would also work with large technology companies on “increased information sharing” to help combat radicalization.
That means more domestic spying, which at this point is algorithms to track everything you do and create a total psychological profile on you.
They are doing this to every American, and have been for a while, but now they are going to start using the databases in this lunatic “pre-crime” system where they arrest you on the theory that you might commit a crime in the future.
“Any particular tech company often knows its own platform very well,” the official noted. “But the government sees things — actually, threats of violence — across platforms. They see the relationship between online recruitment, radicalization, and violence in the physical world.”
The official reassured reporters that the administration’s new strategies would remain “laser-focused” on stopping violent acts.
“This is a strategy that is agnostic as to political ideology or off the spectrum,” the official said. “What matters is when individuals take their political or other grievances and turn that — unacceptably, unlawfully — into violent action.”
I could make some comment about “oh yeah, I guess they’ll start targeting Antifa too now, huh?”
But making such a comment would really just be too humiliating. So I won’t do it.
The official added the Biden administration was taking the threat of domestic terrorism seriously and would redirect the focus of intelligence agencies on internal threats.
“We are investing many agencies of the government and resourcing them appropriately and asking our citizens to participate,” the official said. “Because, ultimately, this is really about homeland security being a responsibility of each citizen of our country to help us achieve.”
This is all of the same lingo that the communists used – but again, it is actually way more hardcore to make it a totally public campaign. Communists did this stuff through back channels.
The Biden Administration is just now openly employing every member of society as an unpaid spy.
People are already ratting out family members and being proud of it.
It will keep getting worse.
You have to be careful.
It’s not even clear what they’re going to do if someone snitches on a family member.
Some woman calls the Bidens and says “my son has been saying that he thinks black people commit too many crimes and that he’s against pedophiles.” And then what happens? Do the feds come and talk to him? Do they send undercover agents to try to entrap him in some terror plot? Do they just go ahead an arrest him, on the theory that he might be planning to kill black people?
Frankly, they can do any of that. They now have total and unrestrained power. The only reason they’re not really using it yet is because they don’t know how, and they don’t have any kind of mandate. But they probably will start doing secret arrests for criminal thoughts pretty soon.
Everything is getting really, really weird.
