President Biden was doing pretty well Tuesday. He recounted the horrors of the Tulsa race massacre in gruesome detail, and it was powerful stuff. Then he kept talking. He talked about how many members of Congress were Klan members (without mentioning party affiliation). He revealed that young black entrepreneurs don’t have lawyers and accountants. And he repeated the opinion of the intelligence community that terrorism from white supremacists is the greatest threat to our homeland.
Just last month, Attorney General Merrick Garland testified that our greatest domestic security threat comes from “racially or ethnically motivated violent extremists, specifically those who advocate for the superiority of the white race.” Two months earlier, Vice President Kamala Harris’s niece, Meena Harris, tweeted that “violent white men are the greatest terrorist threat to our country,” compelled by that mass shooting in Boulder by noted white man Ahmad Al Aliwi Alissa.
In Tulsa Tuesday, Biden reiterated the intelligence community’s view that white supremacists are our greatest domestic terror threat.

This is the most dangerously inaccurate statement I have ever heard from a president. More to follow, I'm sure. https://t.co/te3LHxfMIS

– CRT identifies damn near everything about capitalist society as white supremacy
– White supremacy is “the most lethal threat to the homeland today”
– CRT is being implemented in intel community, military, police, fed agencies, schools

I was spelunking in a natural cave formation the other day when a white supremacist leapt out at me from the midst of a shadow. I quickly dodged his supremacism, but as I stumbled forward I noticed there was a white supremacist in every nook and cranny in the cave.

No it’s not. It’s from ANTIFA and BLM and everyone knows it.

Antifa isn’t even a real thing … it’s just an idea.

According to his side, though, all white people are white supremacists. We can see where this is going.

I would say Biden is the most lethal threat to the homeland today.

We assume the thinking goes that all Trump supporters are white supremacists, and Trump supporters stormed the Capitol on January 6, so therefore, white supremacists are the biggest terrorist threat.
As The Hill reported last month, “Garland dismissed concern from Sen. Richard Shelby (R-Ala.) who asked whether the Justice Department was investigating with ‘equal vigor’ protests in Portland, Ore., and other cities that were often a focus of former President Trump.”

"Right wing nut jobs" spent Memorial Day weekend with their families, or in sober recognition of the sacrifices many in our armed forces made for their country.
