It's nothing new for the Biden administration to warn and hype about "calls to violence" related to the "Capitol insurrection" - but what is new and unprecedented is its warning about potential "attacks" by "violent extremists" related to COVID-19 "conspiracy theories".
The document was the result of a DHS meeting held with top officials and high ranking intelligence officers across multiple agencies from departments in New York, Washington, and Las Vegas, NBC News reported.
The threat bulletin describes that extremists "may seek to exploit the emergence of COVID-19 variants by viewing the potential re-establishment of public health restrictions across the United States as a rationale to conduct attacks."
This is the first time to our knowledge that "terrorism" is linked to the movement among large groups of skeptical Americans to push back against local, state and federal efforts to impose drastic mask, vaccine, and so-called 'COVID passport' mandates.
Interestingly the DHS document is heavily focused on such "extremism" initially manifest online in social media and chat forum groups.
Presumably, given the demographic breakdown, this means DHS is accusing young black folk of being "domestic terrorists?
