Attorney General Merrick Garland provoked criticism Tuesday for alleging that extremists “who advocate for the superiority of the white race” pose the greatest “domestic violent extremist threat” to Americans.
He made the remarks while announcing the Biden administration’s new, widely panned “domestic war on terror,” which even liberals like Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Glenn Greenwald have fiercely criticized.
“In the FBI’s view, the top domestic violent extremist threat comes from racially or ethically motivated violent extremists, specifically those who advocate for the superiority of the white race,” Garland said during his remarks on Tuesday.
“We must not only bring our federal resources to bear, we must adopt a broader societal response to tackle the problem’s deeper roots,” he also said.
The remarks provoked backlash because the AG’s assertion contrasted sharply with the tangible reality that’s been seen, felt and heard across the nation for the past year.
I wonder what people who live in a community that was destroyed by riots last summer that resulted in the most expensive property damage in insurance history think of Biden and Garland’s assertion terror from white supremacy is the biggest threat to the homeland

Ever since the death of Minneapolis criminal suspect George Floyd in May of 2020, the country has faced a constant barrage of “protesting” and violent rioting by racially motivated Black Lives Matter extremists who’ve demanded white people surrender their homes, who’ve defended the looting of property on the basis that it’s “reparations,” and who’ve most recently threatened to “kill everything white in sight.”
“Once they die, we must understand that we can never give them the pain that they gave us. So once they get buried, once they are buried, we must bury them, dig them up and kill them again. Bury them. Dig them up. And kill them again,” a black extremist hollered to a crowd during the so-called “National Black Power Convention” last month.
“Because that time will come when there’s a rat-a-tat-tat. Black Americans will kill everything white in sight,” the extremist added.
The left-wing establishment press completely ignored this extremist rhetoric. It appears the Biden administration did as well.

Combined, the Black Lives Matter “protests” and riots of this past year have left dozens of people dead, hundreds of small businesses destroyed and hundreds of law enforcement agents injured, all at a price tag exceeding $2 billion.
The Biden administration has never explicitly condemned the riots. In fact, prior to taking office, some members of the administration — including President Joe Biden’s own campaign staffers — openly supported the violent rioters.
While anger-provoking, Garland’s remarks weren’t necessarily shocking, and for one key reason: The stark realities of racial hatred in America appear to be most visible within the government itself.
Ibram X. Kendi is a black supremacist who argues that because of America’s PAST sins, white Americans alive today deserve to be discriminated against with the same fervor applied by the anti-black racists of the Jim Crow era.
Yet Chief of Naval Operations Adm. Michael Gilday recommended Kendi’s racist work to sailors and, when questioned about his recommendation during a House hearing, doubled down on it, as reported by the Washington Examiner.
Meanwhile, the Biden administration withdrew the Trump-era lawsuits filed last year against universities that boost black enrollment at the expense of whites and Asians.
These boosts have led to universities like Harvard, as one example, admitting far more black students than white and Asian students with the same “academic index”:
This is what systemic racism looks like. Yet the same people who are screaming about systemic racism want to keep this blatantly discriminatory system in place. https://t.co/7qtVQcObNN

The Biden administration also attempted on multiple occasions to implement race-based programs, including a race-based farmers’ assistance program that guaranteed assistance to all farmers except for the white ones. This program was halted last week.
The administration also tried pushing a race-based assistance program for restaurant owners that favored some genders and races over others. This program was halted late last month.
“A Sixth Circuit court panel ruled on May 28 that the Small Business Administration’s prioritization of Restaurant Revitalization Fund grants on the basis of race and sex for the first 21 days of the program is unconstitutional,” according to Nation’s Restaurant News.
These attempts to implement a racial hierarchy show that the Biden administration is itself the proud propagator of racially motivated extremist rhetoric. Though it’s by no means alone. Dangerous extremist rhetoric seems to have infiltrated every major institution.
Just last month, the Journal of the American Psychoanalytic Association published a paper that maligned whiteness as “a malignant, parasitic-like condition.”
This rhetoric from a mainstream institution isn’t just extreme — it’s genocidal. Yet neither the Biden administration nor its allies in the press have anything to say about it, likely because it coincides perfectly with their own dangerous rhetoric.
The publication of Nazi-like ideas in respectable academic publication is a necessary but not sufficient condition for actual genocide.
Still worth nothing the former when it happens….

Ideally neither condition is ever met. The meeting of the necessary condition should be regarded with due alarm and should raise questions about the antecedent moral and intellectual failures that enabled it
