Senate Republicans are lining up against a House-passed bill that would authorize special offices within the government to investigate and monitor domestic terrorism, which is being pushed in the wake of a racist shooting in Buffalo that left 10 people dead.
The GOP compares the proposal, which sets up offices in the Department of Homeland Security, the Department of Justice and the FBI to target domestic terrorism, to the recently paused disinformation board set up by the Biden administration.
“It sounds terrible,” Sen. Josh Hawley (R-Mo.) of the House-passed bill, predicting it won’t get 10 Republicans in the Senate.
“It’s like the disinformation board on steroids....
Senate conservatives say empowering the departments of Homeland Security and Justice with new authority to monitor domestic terrorism could easily morph into federal policing of political speech, and they worry it would be more targeted toward anti-government, anti-immigration activists than extreme left-wing groups.
“I’m completely opposed to this idea that we would be giving the federal government and federal law enforcement power and authority to surveil Americans, to engage in any kind of monitoring of speech that is directed toward censorship. I think it’s extremely frightening and I can’t believe they haven’t learned their lesson from the disinformation board debacle,” Hawley said.

Still, it is amazing and frightening that the Democrats seek to legislatively push us into a hard tyranny.
We are one law away from becoming East Germany.
I am shocked the Hill did not accuse the GOP of coddling terrorists.

GOPee finally taking a rational, America First stand?
What is Ditch thinking?
The left isn’t going to stop until they lose repeatedly at the ballot box.
The Overton window has to move back to include the 1st amendment again, and to exclude censorship and government determination of “official truth”.
The Tsarnaiv brothers, the Parkland Shooter, the Buffalo Shooter, to name a few, all on the FBI’s radar, but somehow they managed to do the awful things they did; do they think another creating another office is going to somehow make a difference?
Nuke it from orbit. It’s the only way to be sure.
Funny how these events always occur when they want to push harder on gun control or another tyrannical effort. I have no rational explanation how this occurs, but this is not coincidence.
FReepmail me if you want to be added to or deleted from the list.
More 2nd Amendment related articles on FR's Bang List.
This from the group that stabbed Trump in the back and have absolutely shown no backbone in dealing with all the communist wackos the shadow-president obama has nominated for cabinet & advisory positions...
jsanders2001 has actual experience orchestrating these (or similar) sort of events for a three-letter agency. Used to be they confined their efforts overseas. Apparently not any more.
If the First is gone, you won't be told about the efforts to kill the Second... nor how to thwart it.
I dunno. They (and we) did a good job burying the Government Disinformation Bureau.
In the Article, we only hear from Hawley, Johnson and Cornyn.
Where’s the other 47?
Murkey? Collins? Mittens? Ditch? Thune?
You can guarantee that the new agency will be a version of the DOJ on steroids, investigating conservatives while ignoring truly violent groups like BLM and antifa.
It would be unconstitutional anyway because it is only directed against whites. It specifically addresses ONLY “White Supremacists and Neo-Nazis,” which Democrats consider one and the same.
Some of the ones you mention WANT tyranny. Then they need not hear from us.
Now we see, by personal experience, how Germany's brownshirts were so effective in the 1930's.
Don’t forget entrapment plots like the supposed plot to kidnap Governor Whitman and they way they set up Randy Weaver.
