Bill mentions “white” demographic 15 times.
- The U.S. House of Representatives on Wednesday passed the “Domestic Terrorism Prevention Act of 2022” (HR350; read below), a bill that would strengthen the government’s ability to “analyze and monitor” American citizens who it determines pose as “white supremacist” threats.
- The bill was passed 222-203, virtually along party lines, as Illinois Rep. Adam Kinzinger was the only House Republican to vote ‘Yes’ on the bill.
- HR350’s stated purpose is to “authorize dedicated domestic terrorism offices within the Department of Homeland Security, the Department of Justice, and the Federal Bureau of Investigation to analyze and monitor domestic terrorist activity and require the Federal Government to take steps to prevent domestic terrorism.”
- Supporters of the legislation, such as Illinois Democratic senator Dick Durbin, point to the activities of the Ku Klux Klan (KKK) as justification for the bill: “We’ve seen it before in American history. The only thing missing between these organizations and the past are the white robes … it’s time for us to take a stand,” said Durbin.
- The bill’s text mentions specifically “white” supremacism 15 times, even though the average homicide rate among white supremacist groups such as the KKK is only 20 per year, while MS-13 averages 350 homicides per year, and the Bloods and Crips average 6,000 homicides per year. “There is no comparison between white supremacists and the minority criminal gangs,” according to conservative talk show host Bill O’Reilly (see below), who also notes that Mexican drug cartels average 20,000 homicides per year.

WHAT REPUBLICANS ARE SAYING:
- Republican leaders like Minority Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.) in a memo said the bill “would create unnecessary and duplicative domestic terrorism offices” in departments throughout the government.
- Rep. Chip Roy (R-Texas) on the House floor said the legislation was about “empowerment of the federal bureaucracy to target Americans” and “nothing more than empowering the federal government to police thought and speech in the United States of America, and we should oppose it roundly.”
- FOX News host Tucker Carlson in a recent segment (see below) referred to HR350 as moving the U.S. “one step closer to tyranny” and suggested the legislation would be “abused” by the government if it were to become law. Carlson interviewed Nicholas Giordano, who explained that a Senate version of the bill has a provision declaring those who argue coronavirus came from a lab in Wuhan, China “could potentially be labeled as a domestic terrorist.”

READ THE BILL:
- HR350 was passed following the racist mass shooting in Buffalo, New York, reportedly committed by a shooter Payton Gendron (18), who referred to his own political beliefs as “authoritarian left,” “national socialist,” and anti-conservatism in his alleged manifesto.
- Rep. Kinzinger receives campaign donations from Bill Gates (here, here). The U.S. Federal Election Commission lists his donors here.
- The congressman is also featured on the World Economic Forum’s (WEF) website. The WEF is the globalist organization pushing the “Great Reset.”
