Feds Selectively Use Police Power to Stifle Opposition to Government Actions

In the wake of MLK Day, a day honoring a many who was deeply distrusted and investigated by federal law enforcement, it should trouble all Americans that our federal law enforcement agencies only aggressively investigate groups that oppose the government’s agenda. Protesting government actions is as American as apple pie.

Federal law enforcement in Washington, D.C., has been closely monitoring social media for signs of potential violence and extremist activity ahead of a widely publicized demonstration against vaccine mandates this weekend, according to documents obtained by Yahoo News.


“Defeat the Mandates: An American Homecoming” is being billed as a peaceful gathering to promote unity among people who oppose COVID-19 vaccine requirements implemented across the country in an effort to mitigate the impact of the ongoing pandemic. The event is scheduled to take place on the National Mall this Sunday, Jan. 23, beginning with a march from the Washington Monument to the Lincoln Memorial, followed by a rally featuring speeches from several prominent anti-vaccine advocates, including Robert F. Kennedy Jr., whose nonprofit advocacy organization, Children’s Health Defense, is one of the event’s sponsors.

    Yes. Just ask Henry Cuellar.

  2. Mar

    Yep, Dad, I was about to say that. Sinema and Manchin also better look out.

  3. Mark Hoefert

    Love the tweets advising participants to video anyone that seems to be encouraging bad behavior. Also, to try to get their badge numbers too.

    Think there’ll be another Navy Shirt/Tan Pants/Short Haircut bunch marching in formation with everything but their FED FED FED badges showing?

    Ironically, some people think the government needs to excercise more powers over the people… What the fuck is wrong with the Salt Lake Tribune editorial board… What a group of cowards and dolts.

    ”Were Utah a truly civilized place, the governor’s next move would be to find a way to mandate the kind of mass vaccination campaign we should have launched a year ago, going as far as to deploy the National Guard to ensure that people without proof of vaccination would not be allowed, well, anywhere.”

  6. Mar

    Utah is a mostly conservative state but Salt Lake City is nuts.
    I think we should do the opposite: Lock up liberals who believe in climate change, that most masks do not work and that the vaccines work on the current variant of the day.
    That’ll take care about a 40% of the US population.
    Or send them to Australia, they would like it there.

  7. Le Roi du Nord

    And good ‘ol newt is suggesting the same thing, referring here to the January 6th Committee:

    “If Republicans win a majority in Congress this year, Gingrich said, “all these people who have been so tough and so mean and so nasty are going to be delivered subpoenas” for their communications.”

    “I think when you have a Republican Congress, this is all going to come crashing down and the wolves are going to find that they are now sheep, and they’re the ones who are in fact I think going to face a real risk of jail for the kinds of laws they’re breaking.”

    More cancel culture from the right, using federal power. Geez, you guys are hypocrites to the Nth degree……

    And more absolute BS from the master. But I must say, he has softened a bit. At least he allows that some masks work.

    “that most masks do not work and that the vaccines work on the current variant of the day”.

    Question for all you Covid deniers out there: Why you so intent on killing off your electoral base?

  8. Jason

    Only Leroy in his small incel mind could try to equate what Owen linked to with what Newt said. Leroy, you’re a fucking tool.

  9. Jason

    Oh and Leroy, didn’t you get the memo, your drooler-in-chief doesn’t want to record “Deaths with Covid” any more…. the midterms are coming up and his approval rating is now lower than the low it was last week. The most popular president ever, and has dropped in a record breaking fashion.

  10. dad29

    As usual, LeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeRoy is long on snark (for a teenaged kid) and short on facts.

    The NOT-Vaxxed are largely POC, primarily black.

    That would be Bai-Den voters.

  11. Mar

    Lying Karen Le Roi, name one person who is a covid denier here.
    Or are you just making crap up again.?

  12. Mar

    I guess Lying Karen Le Roi is just making things up again.
    Makes false accusations and then doesn’t back it up.
    Typical troll.

  13. Tuerqas

    It is the same old thing from Karen Le Roi, the lib media can only dig up the words of (controversial) former Republicans today because the entire current mess is Democratic, so Le Roi just repeats.
    What Republicans does Le Roi talk about? We have Trump, Gingrich, Kleefisch, oh and her husband who is actually a current office holder, Yea! Then you have one of the few responsible conservatives in office, Ron Johnson. Of course, he doesn’t often quote RoJo (in context) because what he says usually makes a lot of quality sense, so he only quotes the anti-Johnson lib spin.
