Conservatives are Nazis – Biden Admin Funds Propaganda Program At Dayton U.
In a disconcerting revelation, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has come under scrutiny for funding programs that target conservative Americans, leading to unsettling parallels and comparisons with Nazi ideology.
Representative Andy Biggs, a staunch conservative from Arizona, penned a powerful letter to DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas, underscoring the repeated targeting of conservative Americans for lawfully expressing their First Amendment rights.
Central to Biggs’ letter was the revelation of a Homeland Security grant awarded to the University of Dayton for its Preventing Radicalization to Extremist Violence through Education, Network-Building, and Training in Southwest Ohio (PREVENTS-OH) program. This program, according to documents obtained by the Media Research Center (MRC), shockingly equated mainstream conservatism, the Republican Party, and Christian and conservative groups with neo-Nazi organizations on a “Pyramid of Far-Fight Radicalization” chart. This brazen comparison raises profound concerns about the impartiality of the program and its underlying motives.
“Under your leadership, the Department of Homeland Security has repeatedly targeted conservative Americans for lawfully expressing their First Amendment rights,” said the letter.
“The Constitution prohibits the federal government from suppressing the free speech of Americans, by any means, including the use of third parties to engage in unconstitutional attacks on free speech. But this unlawful federal speech regulatory regime continues to be the norm under the Biden administration,” it added.
The University of Dayton’s seminars further added fuel to the fire. Reports suggest that these events featured experts who not only compared mainstream conservatives to genocidal extremists but also made outrageous comparisons, such as likening the Trump administration to the Khmer Rouge and equating Florida Governor Ron DeSantis’ proposal with the Nazis’ Holocaust.
While DHS and the University of Dayton maintain that the seminars and the PREVENTS-OH program are separate entities, questions linger about the funding and the inclusion of these seminars in the grant application. Critics argue that by incorporating controversial content, the program itself becomes entangled in the debate and raises concerns about the university’s discernment in distinguishing between valid scholarly discourse and partisan ideologies.
The comparison of conservative Americans to neo-Nazis strikes at the heart of democratic principles, calling into question the preservation of civil liberties and the balance of power within the nation. It evokes memories of historical events where dissenting voices were silenced and ideological conformity reigned supreme.
In response to these allegations, Representative Biggs and his co-signers demand answers from Secretary Mayorkas, urging him to halt the targeting of conservatives and the misuse of taxpayer-funded initiatives to advance partisan agendas. The concerns raised go beyond political affiliations, emphasizing the need for a society that values open dialogue, respects differing opinions, and safeguards the right to express them freely.
It is essential to recognize that history has taught us the dangers of stifling dissent and labeling political opponents as enemies. As Senator Ted Cruz astutely observes, the weaponization of the federal government to target individuals based on their ideological beliefs creates a chilling effect on free speech and fuels the flames of division within our society.
Cruz called out what he described as a double standard of many academics and U.S. officials targeting conservatives but not looking more into radical groups such as Antifa and Black Lives Matter. He emphasized the need for accountability and transparency, stating, “If we’re going to investigate, let’s investigate everyone. Let’s investigate Antifa, let’s investigate Black Lives Matter, let’s investigate any group that is inciting violence and engaging in acts of extremism.”
As the controversy surrounding the DHS-funded program linking GOP, conservatives, and Christians to Nazis continues to unfold, it raises important questions about the boundaries of free speech, political targeting, and the role of government in shaping public discourse.
