A report broke that has a lot of people up in arms.
The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) was reportedly monitoring people via social media after the Roe v. Wade decision was released.
On the surface, this sounds prudent, but some underlying questions need to be answered.
At the top of that list is if DHS was working with social media platforms to silence dissenting voices.
We Are Watching and Listening
The bulletin was put out by the Office of Intelligence and Analysis (I&A), which is part of DHS.
The agency responded to the Yahoo! News report, stating, “I&A regularly shares information with federal, state, and local law enforcement partners to prevent, protect against, or better respond to targeted violence and terrorism.”
Again, that sounds reasonable, especially when we see these mass shootings forecasted on social media by these whackos.
The problem, however, is that we also know this administration has been working with the major platforms to silence dissenting opinions.
After the report surfaced, Republicans accused DHS of “politicizing” the department.
DHS responded, “DHS engages in a community-based approach to prevent terrorism and targeted violence and does so in ways that protect privacy, civil rights, and civil liberties, and that adhere to all applicable laws.
“To that end, DHS regularly shares information regarding the heightened threat environment with federal, state, local, tribal, and territorial officials to ensure the safety and security of all communities across the country.
“Since 2021, DHS has issued more than 110 unclassified intelligence products related to domestic violent extremism, as well as six National Terrorism Advisory System (NTAS) bulletins that contextualize the evolving threat environment for the public and provide resources for how to stay safe.”
Do you trust DHS with Mayorkas in charge because I know I don’t!
