The Department of Homeland Security issued a startling terrorism advisory Friday that appears to portray U.S. citizens who disagree with the mainstream narrative on the coronavirus and coronavirus vaccine as potential terrorists.

The first mention of COVID dissenters appears in a paragraph ostensibly about “racially- or ethnically-motivated violent extremists (RMVEs) and anti-government/anti-authority violent extremists.”

The department claims these “extremists may seek to exploit the emergence of COVID-19 variants by viewing the potential re-establishment of public health restrictions across the United States as a rationale to conduct attacks.”

The advisory seems to suggest that legitimate opposition to draconian, unnecessary and arguably pseudo-scientific COVID restrictions may be linked to terrorist activity.

In fact, that’s exactly how NBC News has portrayed the advisory:

The second mention again references opposition to COVID restrictions, with the department warning this time that there have been “continued, non-specific calls for violence on multiple online platforms” relating to “anticipated [COVID] restrictions.”

But if these alleged calls to violence have been “non-specific,” then how does DHS know that they’re related to COVID restrictions?

The final mention suggests that anyone who’s disseminated the coronavirus lab leak theory or raised concerns about the coronavirus vaccines is a “nation-state adversar[y]” trying  “to sow discord.”

“Nation-state adversaries have increased efforts to sow discord. For example, Russian, Chinese and Iranian government-linked media outlets have repeatedly amplified conspiracy theories concerning the origins of COVID-19 and effectiveness of vaccines; in some cases, amplifying calls for violence targeting persons of Asian descent,” the paragraph reads.

Regarding the lab leak theory, even Josh Rogin, a left-wing media figure who works for The Washington Post and CNN, has admitted that the theory is legitimate:

The only people who continue to deny the theory’s legitimacy are members of the far-left like the “trans socialist & activist” below:

That DHS is now essentially pushing far-left narratives — and, worse, inserting these narratives into its enforcement activities — suggests that Joint Chiefs of Staff chair Gen. Mark Milley isn’t the only top-level official in the administration who’s gone “woke.”

Moreover, the department’s decision to repeatedly mention COVID dissenters in its advisory suggests it “intends to prosecute people as ‘terrorists” for exercising their first amendment rights,”  according to award-winning investigative journalist Lara Logan.

She’s not alone in worrying about where this all leads.

However, Geoff Pilkington, an apparently well-known” content creator,” believes it’s all a misunderstanding. Responding to these concerns, he claimed that DHS doesn’t care whether people are COVID dissenters.

According to Pilkington, DHS simply believes that COVID restrictions are “a very controversial topic and could lead to people committing acts of violence,” and so the department’s going to simply keep an eye out on dissenters — that’s it.

Look:

Every single tweet seen above has been ratioed, suggesting that most people aren’t buying the narrative that he’s trying to sell …
