The Biden administration is on the offensive against extremism. However, it is having trouble defining the term.
The newly installed defense secretary, Lloyd Austin, has signed a memo ordering several “immediate actions,” including military-wide “stand downs,” to weed out “extremism” in the ranks of the military. Actions also included a review of and update to the DoD’s definition of extremism and a review and standardization of the screening questionnaire — “[t]o solicit specific information about current or previous extremist behavior, and to clarify that any demonstrably false answers provided in response could form the basis for punitive action for fraudulent enlistment.” Defense officials said the Pentagon is reversing Trump-era policies that banned transgender people from serving in the military. The Pentagon will also issue new rules that will broaden transgender people’s access to medical care and cosmetic surgery to imitate members of the opposite sex. Opposition to these policies may be considered extremist.
If you are still weighing whether or not to remain on the Big Tech social media platforms, new policies being implemented by Joe Biden’s Department of Homeland Security should make your decision easier.
According to reports, DHS under Biden now sees “domestic extremists” everywhere since the Jan. 6 Capitol Building riot because the Democrat Party and the regime are using the incident as an excuse to become the 2021 version of the Nazi secret police, the Gestapo (and they called Donald Trump ‘Hitler’).
According to NBC News, DHS will implement a “sweeping set of policy changes” allegedly to bolster the massive agency’s ability to collect our data that will include “the sorts of public social media posts that threatened an attack on the” Capitol.
Probing Biden Admin’s Zealous War on Christian American Trump Supporters

The illegitimate Biden regime seems to be ready and willing to squash any form of dissent. To do so, it has everything on its side: mass media, social media, Big Tech, corporations, the army, the police and anywhere between 30 to 50 percent of the population.
Anybody who protests November 6 election fraud, mass immigration, covid lockdowns, sexual degeneracy or whatever SJW dogma is viewed as a dissident in 2021 Amerika; and dissidents are currently labeled as domestic terrorists by the new regime in DC.

The pending military stand-down to address “extremism in the ranks” may bring results that go beyond what Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin expected to achieve, according to active duty service members who are scheduled to attend the mandatory sessions.
Austin on Friday ordered all uniformed and civilian leaders in the Defense Department to set aside a day soon to discuss “impermissible behaviors” related to extremism.
Striving to silence voices with which the mainstream media disagrees, the New York Times has urged President Joe Biden to appoint a “reality czar” to lead the fight against “disinformation and domestic extremism.”
“Anti-Trump, anti-government, anti-white supremacist, and anti-police.”

TALLAHASSEE, FL – A former U.S. Army soldier angered over the invasion of the U.S. Capitol has been arrested for plotting an attack against protesters at the Florida State Capitol in revenge.
On Friday, the FBI arrested 33-year-old Daniel Alan Baker on federal charges for allegedly issuing an online call to arms to recruit other “hardcore leftists” to “violently confront” protesters Sunday at Florida’s Capitol in Tallahassee.
Does this mean re-education? Persecution? Extermination? Why is a “journalist” concerned with enforcing political ideology?

In a now-deleted tweet, ABC News political director Rick Klein said “cleansing” the “movement Trump commands” is the true challenge going forward, leading many to wonder what exactly liberals may mean by that.
“Trump will be an ex-president in 13 days. The fact is that getting rid of Trump is the easy part. Cleansing the movement he commands is going to be something else,” Klein tweeted on Thursday, linking to a story claiming the US Capitol breach on Wednesday exposed “threats [that] will outlast” the president. The piece went on to call for “justice” against “those involved in an insurrection.”
Klein also doubled down on the comments, writing, “Cleansing the movement he commands, or getting rid of what he represents to so many Americans, is going to be something else.”
In Wake of El Paso, Dayton Agency to “US-Based Domestic Violent Extremists, Perpetrators of Hate Crimes”
In the aftermath of the Dayton and El Paso mass shootings the Federal Bureau of Investigation will be looking to social media more and more in what it claims is a drive to prevent mass shootings before they occur.
“Authorities are looking at social media channels like 8chan in an effort to stop future mass shootings,” CBS News reports.
They said many attackers are inspired online with message boards and social media giving attackers the platform they seek.
“The attack in El Paso, Texas, underscores the continued threat posed by domestic violent extremists and perpetrators of hate crimes,” the FBI states in an August 4 press release, requesting the
American public to report to law enforcement any suspicious activity that is observed either in person or online.
“Many shooters spend almost two years planning their attack … Usually it’s a desire for some omnipotent control, even if its just momentary,” FBI agent Andres Simmons tells CBS News. “And there’s also a degree of desire for infamy and notoriety.”
The FBI’s announcement comes less than one week after Yahoo News reported on a Phoenix FBI Field Office Memo stating that those circulating “anti-government, identity-based and fringe political conspiracy theories” online are worthy of intensified law enforcement scrutiny because they “very likely motivate some domestic extremists to commit criminal, sometimes violent activity.”
In 2011, the United States adopted the Strategy for Empowering Local Partners to Prevent Violent Extremism in the United States (Strategy) and a corresponding Strategic Implementation Plan. Since publication, the mission to prevent violent extremism has progressed, and violent extremist threats have continued to evolve. The overall goal of the Strategy and United States Government efforts to implement it remains unchanged: to prevent violent extremists and their supporters from inspiring, radicalizing, financing, or recruiting individuals or groups in the United States to commit acts of violence.
