From the Department of Homeland Security:
Foreign and domestic threat actors, to include foreign intelligence services, international terrorist groups and domestic violent extremists (DVE), continue to introduce, amplify, and disseminate narratives online that promote violence, and have called for violence against elected officials, political representatives, government facilities, law enforcement, religious communities or commercial facilities, and perceived ideologically-opposed individuals.
Through the remainder of 2021, racially- or ethnically-motivated violent extremists (RMVEs) and anti-government/anti-authority violent extremists will remain a national threat priority for the United States.
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. Pandemic-related stressors have contributed to increased societal strains and tensions, driving several plots by domestic violent extremists, and they may contribute to more violence this year.
There are also continued, non-specific calls for violence on multiple online platforms associated with DVE ideologies or conspiracy theories on perceived election fraud and alleged reinstatement, and responses to anticipated restrictions relating to the increasing COVID cases.
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.
Hate group leader Mat Staver responds:
Now more than at least half of Americans who have refused the injections would now be defined as dissidents and domestic terrorists within their own nation. In addition, the very freedom for which Americans have fought and died, is now “merely figments of their imagination.”
The needle being forced into the arms of federal workers, airline workers, etc., is only the perception of a “forced medical treatment” instead of reviewing the actual VAERS data that shows 571,830 adverse events, including 12,791 deaths as of August 6, 2021.
The Department of Homeland Security terror threat bulletin, which includes people who question COVID shots and unconstitutional government mandates, is appalling. While this sounds like ‘fake news,’ it is unfortunately true. Shame on the Biden DHS.
As I previously reported, Staver has made every batshit false claim about the COVID vaccine imaginable, including that it contains “graphene oxide” meant to “control people and link them to the internet.” He last appeared on JMG when he claimed that the vaccine “prevents people from procreating.”
