The DHS released a terrorism threat advisory about the current threats to the United States on Monday.
What they warn about in the advisory immediately raised a lot of concern because it appeared they were targeting “false or misleading narratives” and “misinformation.”
So, a few of us are wondering, @DHSgov …

They even had a name with a little acronym for it: “mis-dis-and – mal information” (MDM).
These threat actors seek to exacerbate societal friction to sow discord and undermine public trust in government institutions to encourage unrest, which could potentially inspire acts of violence. [….] While the conditions underlying the heightened threat landscape have not significantly changed over the last year, the convergence of the following factors has increased the volatility, unpredictability, and complexity of the threat environment: (1) the proliferation of false or misleading narratives, which sow discord or undermine public trust in U.S. government institutions; (2) continued calls for violence directed at U.S. critical infrastructure; soft targets and mass gatherings; faith-based institutions, such as churches, synagogues, and mosques; institutions of higher education; racial and religious minorities; government facilities and personnel, including law enforcement and the military; the media; and perceived ideological opponents; and (3) calls by foreign terrorist organizations for attacks on the United States based on recent events.
Which of those last three things was not like the others: calls for attacks on the U.S by foreign terrorists, calls for violence against critical infrastructure or soft targets, or “false or misleading narratives” which undermine trust in the government? How does that even begin to be the same? It’s more than a little concerning when they’re counting questioning the government as a “threat” on par with violence or attacks by foreign terrorists.
Just in case it wasn’t clear — they regard questioning elections or “false narratives” about COVID as a threat.
1. The proliferation of false or misleading narratives, which sow discord or undermine public trust in U.S. government institutions:
For example, there is widespread online proliferation of false or misleading narratives regarding unsubstantiated widespread election fraud and COVID-19. Grievances associated with these themes inspired violent extremist attacks during 2021.
Are these the “false narratives” about COVID they were selling us three months ago that they now admit are real? Who gets to decide what is a false narrative, and why is any of that a “threat?”
Add that to questions about the Capitol Police spying on members of Congress, and you have to wonder just how far down the dystopian road does the Biden regime want to take us? This goes even beyond Biden, of course, since it was under the Obama Administration that they used Democratic disinformation to go after a political opponent, and you had Obama’s CIA spying on Congress then. They got caught, yet nothing was done, so they think they can go further.
If you have no other reason to throw them out in the midterms, this alone would be enough. So much for free speech, if they hold onto power. This is frightening and should concern everyone. By the way, the biggest people who have undermined the trust in the government have been the people in the government themselves, like Joe Biden, who have pushed false narratives. So, maybe the DHS should start there.
BREAKING: Biden’s DHS has declared a heightened terrorism threat due to “misinformation” and “conspiracy theories” regarding COVID-19.
Any speech the government doesn’t approve is terrorism?
Is this the official govt response to @joerogan?
Frightening day for America.

Anyone who distrusts the government is now a terrorist.
