WND Columnist Condones Domestic Terrorism Against Government Officials
Topic: WorldNetDaily

In her April 19 WorldNetDaily column, Patrice Lewis warned that there is a "trend over the last five years or so in which the government tries to criminalize anyone who disagrees with it." As evidence, she repeated baseless fearmongering over government and military studies of far-right extremists.

Then, Lewis essentially justifies domestic terrorism against government officials because there are legitimate reasons "people believe the federal government is corrupt and tyrannical." She then rattles off a paranoid laundry list of alleged offenses, some of which have nothing to do with government:

  • Our children are being brainwashed with a federally driven progressive public school agenda of revisionist history, socialist propaganda, gender neutrality, anti-religious views, anti-family literature, the evils of the Second Amendment and the convenience of abortion.
  • One of the premier magazines in the nation publishes an article indicating that deeply held religious beliefs are a sign of mental illness.
  • Mental-health issues are being nationalized, setting the stage for Soviet-era-style psychological warfare on American citizens.

Lewis then writes, "As the saying goes, just because you’re paranoid doesn’t mean you’re wrong."

Lewis concludes: 

Now I ask you: who is working to bring down America, to rot the soul of our nation, to bring treason from within? Who is working to fracture our families, undermine our national security and crash our economy? Who is working to penalize small businesses, prosecute producers and reclassify innocent people as domestic terrorists at the stroke of a pen?

In short, who are the REAL domestic terrorists in America?

Well, given that she's essentially condoning, if not outright approving, the use of violence against elected officials, it appears Lewis is one of those domestic terrorists.
