Conservative Patriots are the New Domestic Terrorist…
You already see the narrative writing itself. They want to squash the MAGA Movement and compare it to some kind of peasant uprising with Trump as the tin-pot dictator.
Remember how when Trump was talking about prosecuting Antifa for demonstrable crimes against the federal government during the rioting/statue attacks? The left freaked out that he might be going after people for political opinion/ideological reason. Attorney General Bill Barr made it very clear that it wasn’t about ideology but crime. Now Joe Biden literally is using the term “ideological inspired” and defining the Capitol protesters, all of them, as “domestic terrorists,” making no distinction on the basis of crime or no crime. “Don’t dare call them protesters,” Mr. Biden said in remarks from Wilmington, Del. “They were a riotous mob. Insurrectionists. Domestic terrorists. It’s that basic. It’s that simple.”
Mr. Biden has said he plans to make a priority of passing a law against domestic terrorism, and he has been urged to create a White House post overseeing the fight against ideologically inspired violent extremists and increasing funding to combat them.
Federal law defines domestic terrorism as dangerous and illegal acts intended to coerce a population or influence the government. While it can be charged in some states, no generic federal crime exists. Domestic terrorism spans extremist ideologies, but it has been predominantly a far-right phenomenon in recent decades, according to researchers.
