In a surprising twist, Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib is leading an effort together with "The Squad" and a handful of other Democrats to demand the "attack" on the US Capitol not be used as an excuse to strip Americans of their civil liberties and expand national security powers.
"I'm leading the call for national security powers to not be expanded in light of the attack on our nation's Capitol that occurred two weeks ago, as such measures often lead to the erosion of Americans' civil liberties," Tlaib said Tuesday on Twitter. "In the face of great tragedy, we must reject reactionary demands to further erode the rights and liberties of the American people."
Shamefully, Tlaib and her colleagues' letter simultaneously trashed the First Amendment by calling for so-called "white nationalist" and "QAnon groups" to be recognized "as the national security threat that they are" (due to their political views) and calling on Congress to "take action to combat them through existing laws, powers and regulations."
The letter comically said that the government must "recognize that the reason that the threat posed by these groups hasn't already been adequately addressed is because of a deeply ingrained unwillingness and/or hesitancy to act against these groups within all three branches of government, especially in the law enforcement community, including the Department of Justice, FBI, Department of Homeland Security, and intelligence agencies, not the result of insufficient domestic national security and/or surveillance powers."
I guess she and her colleagues don't follow the news.
Of course, our ruling class are planning to launch that Orwellian crackdown regardless of what anyone wants.
Democrats only have a slim majority in the House, currently 222-211 (with two seats uncalled and an upcoming special election for the late Republican Rep. Luke Letlow's seat in Louisiana), and the Senate is going to be 50-50. If these 9 Democrats can inspire others to pull their support for the Biden regime's PATRIOT Act 2.0 and the GOP stand against it it's possible they could kill the bill in the House.
Here's the full press released from Tlaib's website:
