The biggest threat to your Constitutional guaranteed right of religious freedom is the very entity that is supposed to uphold freedom of religion—the Federal government. In particular, the Biden Administration is continuing the hostile policies of the Obama Administration toward Christians and conservatives through its administrative authorities. A recent investigation by the Media Research Council (MRC) reveals that “the Biden administration is weaponizing a government-funded anti-terrorism grant program in an effort to destroy conservatives, Christians and the Republican Party.” MRC has obtained documents showing that Biden has revamped a Trump era program to target those with which it disagrees.
The Trump Administration used the Targeted Violence and Terrorism Prevention Grant Program (TVTP) to prevent terrorism. MRC reports the Biden Administration is now using the funds to target “he entire spectrum of the political right and Christians through “media literacy and online critical thinking initiatives” and other so-called training seminars as part of a coordinated effort to make America into a one-party system.” As an example, MRC cites a chart used by DHS for its training program “equates mainstream groups with militant neo-Nazis, including: The Heritage Foundation, Fox News, the National Rifle Association (NRA), Breitbart News, PragerU, Turning Point USA, the Christian Broadcasting Network (CBN), the American Conservative Union Foundation (ACUF) and the Republican National Committee, among others.”
The University of Dayton received $352,109 (of nearly $40 million in taxpayer funds) in a PREVENTS-OH Grant for educational seminars that “compared former President Donald Trump to Pol Pot and suggested Florida Governor Ron DeSantis might wish to start a second Holocaust. The PREVENTS-OH seminars (including one headlined by a DHS agent) feature lectures by University of Cincinnati Research Fellow Michael Loadenthal, a self-proclaimed member of Antifa whose Twitter feed is rife with posts celebrating acts of left-wing violence (often against police officers). Loadenthal used PREVENTS-OH to explain in detail how to create dummy accounts on free speech social media platforms like Telegram, Gab and Rumble in order to “destabilize” political movements.”
An April 7, 2009 Department of Homeland Security document–the first major public document released by the Obama administration–defined right wing extremism as “primarily hate-oriented (based on hatred of particular religious, racial or ethnic groups),..groups and individuals that are dedicated to a single issue, such as opposition to abortion or immigration.” This report insinuated that conservative Christians were akin to Neo-Nazis. These are examples of how our government is being weaponized against us. They, the true Neo-Nazis, are accusing Christians and conservatives of being Neo-Nazis. Like Christ said in Matthew 24:9, “you shall be hated of all nations for my name’s sake.” Who would have thought this would include our own nation whose founding documents revere freedom of religion and speech?
