Moore took offense at Biden’s decision to accept the endorsement of NeverTrump RINO former Michigan Governor Rick Snyder. Snyder, who left office as one of the most unpopular governors in the history of the state, oversaw the response to the Flint water crisis.

Moore saw it as offensive that Biden would tout Snyder’s endorsement on the basis of the water scandal, in which tens of thousands of mostly black Flint residents were provided with contaminated and dangerous tap water on the part of the state.

It’s of some political importance to point out that Joe Biden isn’t a socialist. He’s a neoliberal corporate Democrat with a long track record of policy positions that are distinct from the track record of socialists such as Bernie Sanders. The former Vice President is planning on coasting to victory through making inroads with senior and suburban affluent voters, but his reluctance to pay homage to young left-wing voters who formed a considerable part of the 2008 Obama coalition could spell his November downfall.

Moore’s description of supposed “white racist redneck voters” in Michigan doesn’t exactly spell much in support of new voter outreach on the part of Democrats, suggesting that the seemingly malleable Democrat coalition might stretch too much and figuratively explode.

Tulsi Gabbard Condemns Domestic Terrorism Bill as Potentially Targeting Run-of-the-Mill Trump Supporters and Right-Wingers

The ex-House member is speaking out against members of her own party.

Former presidential candidate and ex-representative Tulsi Gabbard is speaking out against a Democrat-introduced bill to combat “domestic terrorism.” She warns that it might be used to label everyday Christian conservatives and other right-wingers as “extremists” who ought to be monitored.

Speaking with Brian Kilmeade on “Fox News Primetime” Friday evening, Gabbard criticized the bill introduced by Democratic representative Brad Schneider (IL-10). Officially known as H.R.350, it seeks “to authorize dedicated domestic terrorism offices within the Department of Homeland Security, the Department of Justice, and the Federal Bureau of Investigation to analyze and monitor domestic terrorist activity and require the Federal Government to take steps to prevent domestic terrorism.”

If passed, the bill would in theory give the DHS, DOJ, and FBI more tools and resources to monitor certain groups and individuals they consider to be potential domestic terrorists. But Gabbard, a Democrat, worries that it could be used in practice to cast a wide net and label almost half the country as extremists or potential extremists.

When you look at their process and they start looking at what characteristics we’re looking for as we are building this profile of a potential ‘extremist,’ what are we talking about?” Gabbard inquired. “Religious extremists, are we talking about Christians? Evangelical Christians? What is a religious extremist? Is it somebody who is pro-life? Where do you take this?

You start looking at, obviously, has to be a white person, obviously likely male, libertarians, anybody who loves freedom, liberty, maybe has an American flag outside their house, or people who attended a Trump rally,” she continued. “Once you start walking this down the path, you see where it leads: to a very dangerous undermining of our civil liberties, our freedoms in our Constitution, and a targeting of almost half of the country.”

Her remarks come not just in response to Representative Schneider’s bill, but also to the comments by ex-CIA Director John Brennan in which he said that Joe Biden’s administration is “moving in laser-like fashion” to combat something he claims is “very similar to insurgency movements that we’ve seen overseas,” something in the United States that’s akin to an “unholy alliance” of “religious extremists, authoritarians, fascists, bigots, racists, nativists, and even libertarians.”

Gabbard also called on President Biden to disavow Brennan’s remarks and work to build the “unity” he so often stressed during his presidential campaign.

This whole effort, whether you’re talking about this bill or people saying that we have to deprogram these Trump cultists […] all of this just goes to further tear our country apart. And it moves towards what Joe Biden said in his inauguration speech that shouldn’t happen, which is a dehumanization of your opponent. […] He needs to denounce people like John Brennan and their statements, bills like the one Adam Schiff put forward, and truly speak to the American people about how we must come together around the Constitution and around our Bill of Rights, around these rights that have been endowed to us by our Creator,” she said.
