NSC spokesman John Kirby was asked at a recent press conference, point blank, by Fox News‘ Peter Doocy,
The people in this country making violent antisemitic threats. Are they domestic terrorists?
Kirby’s answer was stark:
I don’t know that we’re classifying people as domestic terrorists for that. I mean, that’s really a question better left to law enforcement. I’m not aware that there’s been such a characterization of that[.]
Apparently, such people aren’t even extremists. When Doocy asked White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre that question at another presser, she answered,
I have been very, very clear. We are calling out any form of hate, any form of hate. It is not acceptable. It should not be acceptable here. And we are going to continue to call that out[.]
But apparently such folks aren’t even extremists, just deserving of opprobrium for their rude talk.
Mothers zealously, loudly, objecting to school board policies while at school board meetings, though, are domestic terrorists, according to AG Merrick Garland.
