The Biden administration revealed on Tuesday that guys who can't get laid may be terrorist threats due to "involuntary celibate–violent extremism." That revelation is part of a new crackdown that identifies legions of potential "domestic terrorists" that the feds can castigate and investigate. But there is no reason to expect Biden administration anti-terrorism and anti-extremism efforts to be less of a farce and menace than similar post-9/11 campaigns.
Since the French Revolution, politicians have defined terrorism to stigmatize their opponents, a precedent followed by the Biden administration's National Strategy for Countering Domestic Terrorism. The report labels the January 6 clash at the Capitol as a "domestic terrorism" incident but fails to mention it spurred a mushroom cloud of increasingly far-fetched official accusations. Capitol Police acting Chief Yogananda Pittman told Congress that January 6 was "a terrorist attack by tens of thousands of insurrectionists."
