The Department of Homeland Security has, stunningly, issued a warning about possible attacks on churches heading into the 2024 election.
It has issued a new bulletin claiming that the U.S. now is in a “heightened threat environment.”
“Lone offenders and small groups motivated by a range of ideological beliefs and personal grievances continue to pose a persistent and lethal threat to the Homeland. Both domestic violent extremists (DVEs) and those associated with foreign terrorist organizations continue to attempt to motivate supporters to conduct attacks in the Homeland, including through violent extremist messaging and online calls for violence,” it warns.
“In the coming months, factors that could mobilize individuals to commit violence include their perceptions of the 2024 general election cycle and legislative or judicial decisions pertaining to sociopolitical issues. Likely targets of potential violence include U.S. critical infrastructure, faith-based institutions, individuals or events associated with the LGBTQIA+ community, schools, racial and ethnic minorities, and government facilities and personnel, including law enforcement.”
The warning, oddly, came just days after reports revealed that the Joe Biden administration, through the DHS, was “doling out taxpayer money through an anti-terrorism grant initiative to a university program that has explicitly lumped the Republican Party, as well as Christian and conservative groups, into the same category as Nazis.”
Media Research Center founder Brent Bozell released the findings. He explained MRC obtained documents under the Freedom of Information Act revealing a DHS program meant to fight terrorism was paying a group whose work has explicitly targeted the American political right.
