National EvaluationTulsi Gabbard: Domestic-Terrorism Bill Is ‘a Targeting of Almost Half of the Country’Tulsi Gabbard, the previous Democratic consultant from Hawaii, on Friday expressed concern {that a} proposed measure to fight home terrorism could possibly be used to undermine civil liberties. Gabbard’s feedback got here throughout an look on Fox News Primetime when host Brian Kilmeade requested her if she was “surprised they’re pushing forward with this extra surveillance on would-be domestic terror.” “It’s so dangerous as you guys have been talking about, this is an issue that all Democrats, Republicans, independents, Libertarians should be extremely concerned about, especially because we don’t have to guess about where this goes or how this ends,” Gabbard mentioned. She continued: “When you have people like former CIA Director John Brennan openly talking about how he’s spoken with or heard from appointees and nominees in the Biden administration who are already starting to look across our country for these types of movements similar to the insurgencies they’ve seen overseas, that in his words, he says make up this unholy alliance of religious extremists, racists, bigots, he lists a few others and at the end, even libertarians.” She mentioned her concern lies in how officers will outline the traits they’re looking for in potential threats. “What characteristics are we looking for as we are building this profile of a potential extremist, what are we talking about? 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?” Gabbard mentioned. She mentioned the proposed laws might create “a very dangerous undermining of our civil liberties, our freedoms in our Constitution, and a targeting of almost half of the country.” “You start looking at obviously, have to be a white person, obviously likely male, libertarians, anyone who loves freedom, liberty, maybe has an American flag outside their house, or people who, you know, attended a Trump rally,” Gabbard mentioned. The Domestic Terrorism Prevention Act of 2021 was launched within the House earlier this week within the aftermath of rioting on the U.S. Capitol earlier this month that left 5 useless. “Unlike after 9/11, the threat that reared its ugly head on January 6th is from domestic terror groups and extremists, often racially-motivated violent individuals,” Representative Brad Schneider (D., Ill.) mentioned in a press release saying the bipartisan laws. “America must be vigilant to combat those radicalized to violence, and the Domestic Terrorism Prevention Act gives our government the tools to identify, monitor and thwart their illegal activities. Combatting the threat of domestic terrorism and white supremacy is not a Democratic or Republican issue, not left versus right or urban versus rural. Domestic Terrorism is an American issue, a serious threat the we can and must address together,” he mentioned.
