(Mark Pellin, Headline USA) The White House reiterated on Wednesday the noxious narrative it has been actively plotting with efforts to have the Justice Department redefine domestic terrorism, linking it to symbols of American history and patriotism, supporters of President Donald Trump and parents who attend school board meetings to oppose the leftist indoctrination and radical LGBT grooming of their children.
Following in the shameful shadow of President Joe Biden last week smearing pro-freedom Republicans as “semi-fascists,” White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre called the same MAGA movement “an extreme threat to our democracy, to our freedom, to our rights.”
“The president thinks that there is an extremist threat to our democracy,” the insurrectionist mouthpiece said. “The president has been clear as he can be on that particular piece.”
Critics noted that Biden hasn’t been clear on anything for a long time, and on this particular issue Jean-Pierre was equally wrong and insulting to a large swath of Americans.
“If by ‘extreme MAGA Republicans,’ you mean Republicans who want to secure our borders, grow our economy, stop the bloodshed in our cities, and empower Americans to be their best, then yes,” wrote RNC Research’s Jake Schneider.
“You, however, are a corrupt fraud.”
So, over 72 million Americans who voted for Donald Trump and until now have done *checks notes* exactly nothing to “threaten democracy” are now “enemies of the state”? Is that right, Biden administration?

Jean-Pierre’s briefing served as preview to the prime-time speech Biden is scheduled to deliver Thursday night, when the unifier-in-chief who has called half of Americans racist, fascist domestic terrorists is set to talk about restoring the “soul of democracy.”
If Jean-Pierre’s preview was an indication of what’s to come, Biden should be expected to continue deflecting from his administration’s gross policy failures and his politically weaponizing the DOJ by spewing false and dangerous accusations about anyone who opposes the regime’s agenda.
“They just don’t respect the rule of law,” Jean-Pierre said of Trump supporters and pro-freedom Republicans. “They are pursuing an agenda that takes away people’s rights.”
When asked by a reporter if such divisive and insulting rhetoric was appropriate “unifying language” for a president who ran as a moderate Democrat and unifier, Jean-Pierre answered by lobbing more grenades at Republicans.
REPORTER: “…This president ran as a uniter and now he’s calling MAGA Republicans…’semi-fascists.'”

“Sadly there are more examples than I can count on how we have seen recently armed attacks on federal law enforcement,” Jean-Pierre deflected without offering specifics, and blithely compared it to Florida’s popular Republican governor inciting violence.
“And just last week, you had Governor Ron DeSantis suggest that Dr. Fauci should be physically assaulted,” she said in apparent seriousness, referring to DeSantis cracking last week that, “Someone needs to grab that little elf and chuck him across the Potomac.”
For proof that Biden was justified insulting and denigrating America First Republicans as semi-fascist domestic terrorists, Jean-Pierre relied on the far-leftist New York Times, quoting one of the paper’s screaming headlines: “As Right-Wing Rhetoric Escalates, so do Threats and Violence.”
“These are things we have to call out,” Jean-Pierre said.
