“If you see something, say something:” Biden administration wants family members, friends to report domestic extremism


Language coming from the USA’s White House is sounding eerily similar to language once coming from the USSR’s Kremlin, as the administration prepares a campaign to encourage Americans to “tattle” on their friends and family.

In an effort to fight domestic terrorism, President Joe Biden’s administration announced their plans to streamline methods for Americans to report “radicalized” friends and family to the government.

Described during a June 14 press call with senior Biden administration officials, the new plan seemingly piggybacks on the pre-existing “If you see something say something” campaign to combat radical Islamic terror.

The plan itself runs parallel with Biden’s recorded promises to confront alleged political extremism, white supremacy and domestic terrorism, terms that -while no doubt serious in actual cases- have often been carelessly tagged to persons, causes or ideologies that are not aligned with the growing far-left.

“This involves creating contexts in which those who are family members or friends or co-workers know that there are pathways and avenues to raise concerns and seek help for those who they have perceived to be radicalizing and potentially radicalizing towards violence,” the White House official said on June 14.

On June 1, Biden dubbed “white supremacy” as the “most lethal threat to the homeland today.”

White House officials also went on to say that the federal government will potentially begin working with big tech to combat “radicalization.”

“Any particular tech company often knows its own platform very well,” the official noted. “But the government sees things -actually, threats of violence- across platforms. They see the relationship between online recruitment, radicalization, and violence in the physical world.”

The official insisted that the operation, which would theoretically involve the federal government and tech giants, would be “agnostic to political ideology.”

“This is a strategy that is agnostic as to political ideology or off the spectrum,” the official said. “What matters is when individuals take their political or other grievances and turn that -unacceptably, unlawfully – into violent action.”

The Biden administration has promised to take domestic threats seriously, and will continue to focus a considerable amount of time and energy cracking down on such matters.

“We are investing many agencies of the government and resourcing them appropriately and asking our citizens to participate,” the official said. “Because, ultimately, this is really about homeland security being a responsibility of each citizen of our country to help us achieve.”
