Government Watchdog: Biden Admin’s Grants To Left-Wing Projects Aim To ‘Destroy’ Conservatives
(TeaParty.org Exclusive) – Progressives have managed to infiltrate the deep levels of our federal government, particularly when in agencies focused on law enforcement, so it’s no surprise to discover that the Biden administration has now weaponized taxpayer-funded anti-terrorism grants against conservatives, particularly Christians, creating targets out of “highly reputable conservative organizations” like The Heritage Foundation and the Media Research Center, as per a new report.
The piece, which has been named “Exposed,” reveals that the grant program being run by Homeland Security has been reorganized under President Joe Biden to center on funding leftist organizations to help fulfill its mission to transform the country “into a one party system,” The Daily Signal said.
“In one ‘radical’ example, the report says, Ohio’s University of Dayton used a DHS grant of $352,109 to target conservative organizations as part of a ‘Pyramid of Far-Right Radicalization,’ including The Heritage Foundation, Fox News, the National Rifle Association, and the Republican National Committee,” the article continued.
The Daily Signal then added, “Brent Bozell III, founder and president of the Media Research Center, describes the report as uncovering documents showing that ‘the government is colluding with left-wing activists, academics, and state and local officials in an active effort to target some of the most prestigious conservatives and prominent political, religious, and media groups in the country, linking them directly to Nazis and terrorists.”
Fox News is one of the so-called conservative organizations that is being targeted by the president’s grants. These grants are designed to provide funds for local jurisdictions to help fight against “all forms of terrorism and targeted violence,” a copy of the “Exposed” report says.
However, “Instead of focusing on preventing actual violence and terrorism, the program is now being used to target the entire spectrum of the political right and Christians through ‘media literacy and online critical thinking initiatives’ and other so-called training seminars as part of a coordinated effort to make America into a one-party system.”
The report, which is part of the MRC’s Free Speech America Project, along with other materials were sent earlier in the week to Ohio Republican Congressman Jim Jordan who is serving as the chairman of the House select panel on the weaponization of the federal government, which contains a request for criminal prosecution.
The left is no longer trying to hide their hatred for the political opposition they face. They are actively attempting to make conservatives scary villains so that more and more average Americans will turn hardcore Democrats. By doing this they are also causing fear to spread among the citizenry in an attempt to justify silencing their perceived political opponents. Why? Because it’s easier to keep people enslaved to progressive groupthink, which is required for people to be obedient to the elite.
“The Obama administration initiated the grant program in the Department of Homeland Security, according to the report, and the Trump administration refocused it as part of a toolbox to prevent terrorism,” the Daily Signal reported. “DHS has awarded 80 grants so far under Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas, a Biden appointee who called the program a ‘high priority’ in an internal memo that MRC Free Speech America says it obtained exclusively.”
The Targeted Violence and Terrorism Prevention Grant program has already sucked $40 million from the pockets of American taxpayers. The 80 grants that have thus far been awarded range from $85,000 to a whopping $1.9 million.
Here’s another finding:
“The University of Dayton’s PREVENTS-OH program established by the grant promised to ‘draw on the expertise of the University of Dayton faculty’ to fight ‘domestic violence extremism and hate movements.’ (The acronym stands for Preventing Radicalization to Extremist Violence through Education, Network-Building and Training in Southwest Ohio,)”
However, the chart being used to instruct folks on “The Pyramid of Far-Right Radicalization” that’s been used by the school as part of their training seminar “equates mainstream groups with militant neo-Nazis,” the report noted. It then goes on to say that this list of organizations includes: The Christian Broadcasting Network, Turning Point USA, PragerU, Breitbart News, and the American Conservative Union Foundation, as well as Heritage, Fox News, the National Rifle Association, and the Republican National Committee.
The seminar also compared former President Donald Trump to the deceased Cambodian dictator Pol Pot, a man responsible for massive genocide, going on to suggest that Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis of Florida might potentially desire to carry out a “second Holocaust.”
Where do they get this stuff?
“The program’s seminars (including one headlined by a DHS agent, the report says) feature lectures by University of Cincinnati research fellow Michael Loadenthal, a self-identified member of the violent extremist group Antifa, whose Twitter feed “is rife with posts celebrating acts of left-wing violence (often against police officers),'” The Daily Signal explained.
According to the bombshell findings, Loadenthal used UD’s program to “explain in detail how to create dummy accounts on free speech social media platforms like Telegram, Gab, and Rumble in order to ‘destabilize’ political movements.”
“A lot of things we’re doing are illegal,” Loadenthal went on to say during one seminar. “A lot of it involves breaking the law.”
During his low-energy campaign in 2020, President Biden promised he would disband the office. However, it seems that he, along with Mayorkas, have opted to take the exact opposite approach, having “hijacked it for their own political agenda” by awarding grants to “far-left projects.”
“The median amount of the 80 grants made during the Biden administration is $442,000. A total of 52% of grants have gone to public institutions such as universities and county governments, and 48% have gone to private organizations such as the LGBTQ+ advocacy group Out Boulder County and the University of Dayton,” The Daily Signal stated.
A spokesperson working for DHS told Fox News Digital that the grant it gave to UD was not at all related to the seminar, going on to explain the agency does not support any form of discrimination.
A spokesman representing the University of Dayton gave a statement to Fox saying, “The speakers at the programs referred to in the Media Research Center’s report are from the University of Dayton Human Rights Center’s Social Practice of Human Rights Conference in the fall of 2021, which had no affiliation with and predates PREVENTS-OH. The University of Dayton Human Rights Center received its PREVENTS-OH grant in the fall of 2022 and, to date, its community awareness events and dialogues have focused on all forms of domestic terrorism, targeted violence, and extremism.”
The executive summary of the report states that the Department of Homeland Security “resisted producing documents pursuant to our Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests to date,” however it also says, “MRC Free Speech America has acquired scores of documents directly from DHS grant recipients and other related organizations revealing the true and nefarious nature of the Biden administration’s objectives.”
Bozell, who is the president of the Media Research Center, wrote a letter addressed to Jordan, informing him that the evidence ultimately shows those involved in this mess need to face criminal prosecution.
Let’s hope we see it come to fruition.
