You might be a “domestic terrorist” if . . .

Reposted by permission from Liberty Counsel Action.

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) released another directive on how it defines a “domestic terrorist.” You might be included. And Joe Biden’s new head of the “Disinformation Governance Board” went on MSNBC to defend this broad definition.

DHS has never been a fan of free speech. Even before Michael Chertoff became the head of its new Disinformation Governance Board, he was in support of a shocking definition of domestic terrorism and restrictions on your free speech.

But Chertoff has a big problem, which is knowing what truth is … He should be nowhere close to making this call on what is real and what is fake. There is a bill in Congress that will defund and shut down his board. Overwhelm Congress with your faxes to demand that members of Congress immediately support, co-sponsor and pass this bill. — Mat

Hiring Michael Chertoff to lead the Disinformation Board is part of a DHS plan to censor speech with which Joe Biden—and those like him—disagree.

On May 15, 2021, Chertoff compared the events of Jan. 6, 2021, to the terrorist attacks on 9/11 that killed nearly 3,000 law-abiding people! He said, “We’re under attack now, our values are under attack, but it is a domestic attacker, not a foreign attacker. And that has created a degree of political division—an allergy to the truth—that is, I think, going to make it more difficult.”

The Disinformation Board will target speech regarding the midterm elections, election fraud and COVID-19. In February 2022, the DHS released a new bulletin warning that “false or misleading narratives about unsubstantiated election fraud” could present a threat to national security.

The bulletin states that the “months preceding the upcoming 2022 midterm elections could provide additional opportunities for these extremists and other individuals to call for violence directed at democratic institutions, political candidates, party offices, election events, and election workers.”

On June 3, 2022, the federal cybersecurity agency issued a warning that certain Dominion voting machines are vulnerable to hackers. But in the world of the DHS, this is just a “conspiracy theory,” and such speech is a threat to national security.

DHS wants to control what you can see or read. This new Disinformation Board is also a serious threat to your freedom of speech.

The Disinformation Board is a big part of a new strategy to censor you. We must stop it now. Send your urgent faxes to Congress to demand an end to all funding for the Disinformation Board NOW.

The DHS bulletin states that complaints about “COVID-19 mitigation measures – particularly COVID-19 vaccine and mask mandates – have been used by domestic violent extremists to justify violence since 2020.” If you oppose masking or shot mandates, you are on the radar of the Disinformation Board.

The DHS continues, “Such threats are also exacerbated by impacts of the ongoing global pandemic, including grievances over public health safety measures and perceived government restrictions.”

Perceived government restrictions! Really? As though these restrictions were not real.

The “DHS is collaborating with industry partners to identify and respond to those individuals’ encouraging violence and attempting to radicalize others through spreading disinformation, conspiracy theories, and false narratives on social media and other online platforms” (emphasis added).

This plain language states that if you spread what the DHS considers “disinformation,” then YOU are responsible for radicalizing others and encouraging violence—even if you never did either. Suddenly YOU have become Homeland Security’s definition of a domestic terrorist!

This is the mission of the Disinformation Board to stop you even from peacefully speaking the truth!

Send your urgent faxes to Congress to demand an end to all funding of the Disinformation Board NOW.

Now, if you are what DHS considers a “domestic terrorist,” YOU have become a top priority of both DHS and FEMA. The DHS website states, “DHS has prioritized combatting DVE [Domestic Violent Extremist] threats within its FEMA grants as a National Priority Area.”

If you had any questions about what topics the DHS consider dangerous, DHS spells it out for us. “[A]dversaries have increased efforts to sow discord. For example, … [foreign] media outlets have repeatedly amplified conspiracy theories concerning the origins of COVID-19 and effectiveness of vaccines” (emphasis added).

That sounds a lot like the areas we dig into here at LC Action.

When you combine this with Chertoff’s push to spy on Americans and “indefinitely confine” them through the Patriot Act he co-wrote—it is clear what Chertoff’s vision is for the future of America. It’s not the America we know!

Chertoff has been caught pushing some of the biggest disinformation stories of the last few years, and these include the Russia-Trump hoax perpetrated by Hillary Clinton’s campaign.

In November 2020, Chertoff said Hunter Biden’s laptop was “fake.” Chertoff said there was no evidence of election fraud and claimed, “The 2020 election was the most secure in U.S. history.” But it wasn’t.

We must stop the Disinformation Board before it’s too late. Send your urgent faxes to Congress to demand an end to all funding for the Disinformation Board NOW.
