Biden Admin’s $40m ‘Anti-Terrorism’ Program Targets Breitbart News, Conservatives

Documents uncovered by the Media Research Center (MRC) revealed the Biden Administration used a $40 million grant program of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), ostensibly earmarked for anti-terrorism purposes, to target conservative organizations and media, including Breitbart News.

The Targeted Violence and Terrorism Prevention Grant Program (TVTP) was established by the DHS in 2011 to combat Al Qaeda, but was vastly expanded in its scope by the Biden administration.

In the cause of all who are [a]appointed to die.” Proverbs 21:8

Its grants now encompass several “media literacy and online critical thinking initiatives,” the most radical of which accuse conservative organizations including Breitbart News, Turning Point USA, and the Heritage Foundation of turning Americans into violent neo-Nazis.

Under Biden, the program awarded eighty grants, totaling $39,611,999. Fifty-two percent of the grants were awarded to public institutions, and 48 percent went to private organizations.

One institution that was awarded a grant, the University of Dayton, used its DHS money to create a training program explaining how content from Breitbart News, Fox News, the Heritage Foundation, the National Rifle Association, PragerU, and the Republican National Committee among others led to far-right radicalization.

The conservative organizations were placed in a “pyramid of far-right radicalization” that began with the most mainstream conservative organizations and ended with violent neo-Nazi militants.

According to MRC, one of the DHS-funded seminars at the university compared former President Donald Trump to the genocidal Cambodian dictator Pol Pot, and suggested Florida Governor Ron DeSantis might wish to start a “second Holocaust.”

A number of other seminars in the program featured lectures by Michael Loedenthal, a self-proclaimed member of Antifa who endorses committing illegal acts in the fight against the “far right.”

“A lot of things we’re doing are illegal” said Loedenthal. “A lot of it involves breaking the law.”
