Rand Paul recently delivered a scathing speech about the The Domestic Terrorism Prevention Act of 2022, a bill that Republicans in the Senate have so far blocked, railing against what he saw as a Democrat attempt to smear American police officers and soldiers as neo-Nazis and domestic terrorists.
Paul first ripped the Democrats for what they’re attempting to do with the bill and the insult they’re sending toward cops and soldiers with it, saying:
“This bill should be called by a more accurate name: the Democrat plan to brand our police and soldiers as white supremacists and neo-Nazis.
“How insulting. We knew that Democrats despise and want to defund the police, but now, they believe that the police, federal law enforcement, and the U.S. military are full of white supremacists and neo-Nazis?”
Continuing his brutal smackdown of a speech, Senator Paul then connected the bill with the Biden Administration’s recent attempt at creating a “Disinformation Governance Board,” saying:
“Those of us who still care about the Bill of Rights just got done taking down the DHS ‘Ministry of Truth,’ and a day later, Democrats want to create the DHS Thought Police. You couldn’t make it up if you tried. But they don’t stop there.
“The bill creates two other Thought Police offices at the Department of Justice and at the FBI, which seems like a self-defeating choice, since elsewhere in the bill, we are told that federal law enforcement is shot through with white supremacists and neo-Nazis.”
He then took to ripping the nonsensical nature of the bill and pointed out what it was likely intended to be, saying:
“None of the bill makes sense. It doesn’t make sense because it was a bill that was never intended to become law. It’s a dumb, Washington talking points memo masquerading as legislation.
“But congressional Democrats have gotten so radical, so extreme, and so out-of-touch with the American people that when they read it, they see something worthwhile.
“This bill will fail today because the Democrats’ message — hate the police, defund the police, slander the military and police as racists and white supremacists — has been roundly rejected by the American people.”
Watch Senator Paul’s awesome speech here:
He was right in his prediction that the bill would fail. The bill did fail to pass in a 47-47 vote that came nowhere close to meeting the 60-vote requirement for the Senate, so the GOP was able to stop it and stave off the creation of a thought police-type group within the DHS.
Senator Paul, while perhaps a bit hyperbolic, was generally correct in his depiction of the bill.
The summary of the bill itself provides, for example, that, “It creates an interagency task force to analyze and combat white supremacist and neo-Nazi infiltration of the uniformed services and federal law enforcement agencies.”
Another portion of the summary provides that the bill “authorizes domestic terrorism components within the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), the Department of Justice (DOJ), and the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) to monitor, analyze, investigate, and prosecute domestic terrorism.”
