Democrats are working to take away freedom from the American people.
And they think they have the perfect opportunity.
A top Democrat gave an honest warning about this bill Nancy Pelosi is pushing.
The Domestic Terrorism Prevention Act of 2021 has been introduced as a response to the riot at Capitol Hill.
“In the wake of the domestic terrorist attack on our Capitol two weeks ago, it is painfully clear that the current approach to addressing the real and persistent threat posed by white nationalism and similar ideologies is not working. We must not allow hate crimes and domestic terrorism to continue unchecked. I look forward to working with my colleagues to advance this important and timely bill as quickly as possible,” said Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler (NY-D).
Former Democratic Hawaii Rep. Tulsi Gabbard is an actual moderate Democrat who is willing to speak out against her own party.
Gabbard spoke out against a domestic terrorism bill that the Democrats are looking to pass on “Fox News Primetime” with host Brian Kilmeade.
She’s afraid the legislation could be used to undermine constitutional liberties.
Kilmeade introduced Gabbard, who has just stepped away from her congressional seat after choosing not to run for reelection, and asked, “Are you surprised they’re pushing forward with this extra surveillance on would-be domestic terror?”
“It’s so dangerous as you guys have been talking about, this is an issue that all Democrats, Republicans, independents, Libertarians should be extremely concerned about, especially because we don’t have to guess about where this goes or how this ends,” Gabbard began, saying that former CIA Director John Brennan was already making comments that worried her.
“When you have people like former CIA Director John Brennan openly talking about how he’s spoken with or heard from appointees and nominees in the Biden administration who are already starting to look across our country for these types of movements similar to the insurgencies they’ve seen overseas, that in his words, he says make up this unholy alliance of religious extremists, racists, bigots, he lists a few others and at the end, even libertarians.”
Gabbard is concerned about how the government will define potential threats.
“What characteristics are we looking for as we are building this profile of a potential extremist, what are we talking about? Religious extremists, are we talking about Christians, evangelical Christians, what is a religious extremist? Is it somebody who is pro-life? Where do you take this?” Gabbard said.
She said the proposed legislation could create “a very dangerous undermining of our civil liberties, our freedoms in our Constitution, and a targeting of almost half of the country.”
“You start looking at obviously, have to be a white person, obviously likely male, libertarians, anyone who loves freedom, liberty, maybe has an American flag outside their house, or people who, you know, attended a Trump rally,” Gabbard said.
