At the behest of the Biden administration, the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) is supposedly clamping down on domestic extremism. Urging Americans to keep an eye on family members and friends for “mobilization to violence,” the FBI’s targets are homegrown violent extremists, also known as HVEs.
In other words, the FBI wants Americans to spy on their friends and family.
Such over-the-top rhetoric is obviously a response to national polling, showing that the American people are outraged by the violence on the streets of America and the Democrats’ “Defund the Police” agenda. Suddenly, the Biden administration is doing its best impression of China or Cuba, in a shameless attempt to protect a president who has repeatedly turned a blind eye to the left-wing violence perpetrated by Antifa, Black Lives Matter (BLM), and other left-wing groups. President Biden may claim to oppose domestic extremism, but it amounts to mere lip service until he acknowledges the threats posed by the radical Leftists in his midst.
