“One wonders how long it would take for a domestic terrorism law to be weaponized political dissidents and minorities.” (Election Wiz)
This is scary. It’s why President Trump has to do the insurrection or act on the EO of 2018 even if it seems desperate or tyrannical. This is end game.

Look at the bill here:
It is the terrible, horrible consequence of criminalizing thought – hate crime. All crime is hate. Now, hate crimes will be considered domestic terrorism in order to set up an entire state security apparatus. Thought crime literally and perhaps GITMO.
The push to make “domestic terrorism” a federal offense is not new. Molly McCord, a former DOJ lawyer who oversaw the early stages of the RussiaHoax has pushed for the creation of such an offense for years.
Federal law defines terrorism as dangerous and illegal acts intended to coerce a population or influence the population or the government. While the crime can be charged in some states, no generic federal law exists.
Those pushing for the creation of a domestic terror law argue that enacting a federal crime would place it on the same “moral plane” as international terrorism and likely deter people from engaging in domestic acts of terror.
Further, they assert that making domestic terror a federal offense would allow not only those who commit terroristic acts to be prosecuted, but allow anyone who provides “material support” to be hauled into court under 18 U.S.C. § 2339A.
Make no mistake, enacting a domestic terror law is a terrible idea.
First, there are ample criminal statutes that provide for substantial punishment for those who commit violent crimes in furtherance of domestic extremist causes. Murder is a crime in all 50 states, punishable by life imprisonment or, in some cases, death.
Moreover, all states, including the federal government, have various hate crimes on the books. Depending on the law, hate crimes are punishable by death. For example, Dylan Roof was convicted of 33 federal hate crimes and was sentenced to death. Thus, applying the label “domestic terrorist” might make some feel better, but it would have little practical impact for punishment purposes…… (read the rest at Election Wiz).
I believe the Republican members of Congress who have incited this domestic terror attack through their attempts to overturn the election must face consequences. They have broken their sacred Oath of Office.
I will be introducing a resolution calling for their expulsion. pic.twitter.com/JMTlQ4IfnR

Democrats are now working on legislation to make MAGA rallies illegal & acts of terror.
No you are not dreaming. Democrats will now make it illegal for their political opponents to gather.
I hope the Republicans are proud of selling their country out to communism. God help us

Prepare for the new “Domestic Terrorism Bill” The Patriot Act 2 is on the way, from the same author behind the smash-hit original
By: Kit Knightly, Off Guardian, January 11, 2021:
Behold the new face of terrorism.
It’s not been often, in the five years OffG has existed, that we’ve had to cop to missing something important within 24 hours of publishing an article – but this is one of those times.
In my article yesterday – “The Storming of the Capitol”: America’s Reichstag Fire? – I said this [my emphasis]:
Although there is not yet any talk of legislation [in response to the Capitol Hill riots], it’s certainly true there are whispers of purges and other measures to “protect the constitution”.
That quote did not age well, indeed it was wrong from the moment it went to print. Because, as it turns out, there has actually been “talk of legislation” for weeks – even months. Soon-to-be-President Joe Biden promised a new “domestic terrorism bill” back in November, according to the Wall Street Journal.
That is why you’re seeing so much usage of the phrase “domestic terrorism” in the last couple of days. It’s the meme-phrase. The primary talking point for this whole exercise. It was underlined in all the memos sent out to all the media outlets.
That’s why Joe Biden went to such lengths to distinguish “domestic terrorists” from “protesters” in his speech following the riots.
That’s why the Council on Foreign Relations had an interview with a “counter-terrorism and national security expert” published within 24 hours of the incident, in which he spends 4 paragraphs arguing that the people who “stormed the capitol” were domestic terrorists.
That’s why ABC had an article about how “domestic terrorism and hate crimes” were a growing problem in America…a week before the riot took place.
And that’s why #TrumpisaDomesticTerrorist is trending on Twitter.
Georgetown University, a well-known spook college, published a paper in September 2020 titled the “The Need for a Specific Law Against Domestic Terrorism”, and op-ed pieces bemoaning the lack of such a law have been dotted through the press going back to last summer and even late 2019.
There was one published yesterday, in which a “senior FBI official” says “more could have been done” if there had been a “specific law outlawing” domestic terrorism.
“Domestic Terrorism” is clearly where it’s at in early 2021, so we can expect a brand new law regarding it…probably by March, at the latest.
What will “Domestic Terrorism” mean in this law? The answer to that is pretty much always “whatever they want it to mean.”
Certainly, it will include “incitement” and “hate speech”, I would expect “denialism” to make an appearance, and be downright shocked if “spreading misinformation” doesn’t get a mention. Don’t be surprised if “questioning elections” or “bringing democracy into disrepute” is made an outright crime.
It will probably be tied into the Covid “pandemic” in some way, too. After all, what is discouraging people from taking vaccines if not the very definition of “terrorism”, right? It’s possible that even climate change will get a mention as well. They like to slide that into every issue these days.
Joe Biden has claimed multiple times to be the author of the original Patriot Act, saying it was based entirely on a bill he proposed in the wake of the Oklahoma City bombing of 1995.
Well now he has a chance to work on the reboot too, and they are always so much better when you can get the original creative team back together.
