The National File reports:

As the Biden administration continues its persecution of political dissidents using the vast powers of the national security apparatus, Attorney general Merrick Garland said the "top domestic violent extremist threat" comes from "those who advocate for the superiority of the white race" in a statement regarding domestic terrorism today.

Describing America's new "national strategy for countering domestic terrorism," Garland told the world that the Biden regime would be heightening its efforts to turn the federal government against the American people to "counter the heightened domestic terrorism threat using all available tools."

First Demonize, Then Terrorize

When you want to persecute a political or ethnic group, it helps to demonize it first. The natural law, which God wrote on our hearts, rebels against open persecution of those who are clearly innocent, just because they're weak.

So if you wish to dispossess, impoverish, imprison or even kill members of a given group — for whatever reason — you'd better get busy manufacturing "proof" that they deserve it; that they're carriers of some profound, contagious evil; that they stand as an imminent threat to all that is good and decent. In fact, they're a real and present danger to public order. So the regime must crack down on them before they do harm to others.

You'll need to whip up some genuine fear first. That's the most useful goad in getting people to enforce what's cruelly unjust. Convince them they have to do it out of self-preservation. Sure, outright hatred sometimes will do the job. But rarely can you get vast numbers of people to sustain that emotion unless it's undergirded by terror. First, you must use propaganda to convince them they're in danger. Then, they'll do pretty much anything, if only to protect themselves and their families from the "threat."
