President Biden, speaking at a town hall event last February, suggested former military members are helping to fuel the growth of white supremacy in the country and are thus a national security threat.
It is an important flashback moment to analyze this Veteran’s Day.
Biden was asked by an audience member who was “shaken” by the Capitol riot what he would do about “Americans who embrace white supremacy.”
The President responded that the problem is “complex” and “real.”
“You may — I got involved in politics to begin with because of civil rights and opposition to white supremacists, the Ku Klux Klan,” responded Biden. “And the most dangerous people in America continue to exist.”
He then delivered what should have been a jaw-dropping line – smearing veterans and law enforcement alike as a significant source of bigotry.
“And you see what’s happening — and the studies that are beginning to be done, maybe at your university as well — about the impact of former military, former police officers, on the growth of white supremacy in some of these groups,” he said.

It wouldn’t be the last time that President Biden was willing to suggest a scourge of white supremacy amongst veterans.
In fact, several months later he announced a new strategy to combat ‘domestic terrorism’ in the United States. A plan that included training for retired service members to avoid radicalization and ways to root out “insider threats” in the military.
The plan was drawn up after an intelligence review had identified white supremacists and anti-government extremists as “the two most lethal elements of today’s domestic terrorism threat.”
An administration official said at the time that those lethal elements would be fought by having the Department of Defense incorporate “training for servicemembers separating retirements in the military, who may potentially be targeted by those who seek to radicalize them.”
White House calls Capitol riot a ‘terrorist attack’, introduces Pentagon anti-radicalization to stop the ‘lethal’ rise of ‘white supremacy’ in the military and pushes to ‘purge’ the internet of ‘extremist content’ https://t.co/b2ss2bvXrM

Following the January 6 riot, National Guard troops were vetted for ‘extremist’ views despite Acting Secretary of Defense Chris Miller saying at the time there was “no intelligence indicating an insider threat” to the event.
This is the most offensive thing I’ve ever heard.
No one should ever question the loyalty or professionalism of the Texas National Guard. @TexasGuard
I authorized more than 1,000 to go to DC.
I’ll never do it again if they are disrespected like this.https://t.co/STZDMz7PGm

Prior to Biden’s town hall remarks, Democrat lawmakers sought to add language into the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) that would keep ‘white supremacists’ from joining the military.
“Lawmakers are taking matters into their own hands to prevent white supremacists and other extremists from joining and remaining in the military,” The Hill reported.
There is a clear pattern of Democrats viewing active military and former military with disdain.
Biden meanwhile, has in the past openly referred to the late Senator Robert Byrd, a recruiter for the KKK, as a “mentor” and “friend.”
Byrd had been elected to the post of “exalted cyclops” early on in his life and later stalled and opposed major civil rights legislation.

DeSantis/Gabbard DeSantis/Gabbard DeSantis/Gabbard—-the Reconciliation Ticket to cleanse the toxicity of Biden Clinton and sadly, Trump
So, let’s review. Veterans are racists, terrorists, nationalists, white supremacists, deplorables, folks with flags in their yards making some folks feel ‘unsafe’, and generally not to be trusted. Good thing only about 1% of Americans wear/have worn the uniform, then, huh? The rest of you just feel free to continue to enjoy your freedoms, while some “racist” is on duty somewhere as you read this…..
From a pea brain that never served. The man is disgusting. Fifty odd years leeching off the taxpayer.
Who was the one that fast tracked minorities to jail? Democrat representatives are the most prejudiced people on the earth. It amazes me how they are able to dupe minorities to support them. I dont know…..maybe its all the free stuff!
Was that BEFORE his son became a crackhead and a womanizer ?
Hey dummies…..the democrats formed the KKK and still support them to this day yet idiots belie e whatever they are told by those demons…..they are the ones who need to be cleansed…
