FoxNews.com reports that
New York Times reporter Katie Benner deleted tweets calling for Trump supporters to be considered “enemies of the state” after she faced viral backlash from critics.
Amid the first hearing of the Jan. 6 committee on Capitol Hill, Benner suggested that in order to “combat” national security threats within the country, the solution was to target the voters of the former president.
However, the Times’ Justice Department reporter later took down the tweets, claiming they were “unclearly worded.”
The Times did not respond to Fox News’ multiple requests for comment, including an inquiry about whether Benner deleted the tweets at the direction of the paper.
In the original tweets, Benner stressed that the Jan. 6 committee “underscores” what she indicated was the ongoing threat within the U.S.
“Today’s #January6thSelectCommittee underscores the America’s current, essential natsec dilemma: Work to combat legitimate national security threats now entails calling a politician’s supporters enemies of the state,” Benner wrote.
Benner explained, “As Americans, we believe that state power should not be used to work against a political figure or a political party. But what happens if a politician seems to threaten the state? If the politician continues to do so out of office and his entire party supports that threat?”
The Times’ DOJ reporter cast doubt that the Pelosi-appointed committee would resolve the “dilemma” since it remained “unresolved” following the Russia investigation and both impeachments of President Trump.
“That leaves it up to voters, making even more essential free, fair access to the polls,” Benner concluded.
Benner’s comments were slammed by critics.
“Absolutely amazing: the New York Times’ Justice Department reporter says the US faces an ‘essential natsec dilemma’: namely, that Trump supporters are ‘enemies of the state’ and all of the GOP is a threat to the State. This is a reporter — not an op-ed writer — saying this,” journalist Glenn Greenwald reacted. “Hearing anyone describe a traumatic and violent experience provoke emotions: even for police officers. That’s what today is for. But the fixation on 1/6 is about exactly this: classifying Trump supporters as Enemies of the State for political gain & Security State power.”
“Here we have an NYT reporter, channeling the views of the corrupt FBI and DOJ officials who leak to her, straight-up saying that your political opposition to the ruling regime makes you an enemy of the state by definition,” The Federalist co-founder Sean Davis summarized.
“This is such a wildly extreme statement on so many levels, couched in the phony language of journalistic impartiality,” journalist Michael Tracey slammed Benner’s comments.
Rep. Jim Banks, R-Ind., who was initially set to serve on the Jan. 6 committee but was rejected by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., appeared to be taken aback by Benner’s tweets.
“That’s the best summary of the Biden Admin’s domestic national security strategy I’ve ever read,” Banks wrote.
The Times did not respond to Fox News’ inquiry as to whether or not Benner’s tweets violated the paper’s social media guidelines.
Was Katie Benner wearing a Brown Shirt when she was tweeting that garbage?
The Far Left Demicrat6s and their minions in the Main Stream Media are upset that average Americans, who believe in God and Country, are not “falling in line”, and becoming subservient to their clearly Marxist Political Ideology, which they believe is “best” for America.
For years now, I have referred to the intolerant political ideology of Modern American Liberals, such as the Democrat Politicians on Capitol Hill and Jack Dorsey and his minions at Twitter, as “The New Fascism”, because of their intolerance toward traditional Americans’ Faith and Values and their lack of respect for our Constitution and our American System of Law and Order.
What we are seeing now, after an obviously Rigged 2020 Presidential Election, the inaction by a Democrat-Majority Congress in response to it, and the silencing of Conservative Voices in Social Media is a result of an amalgamation of the political philosophies of the special interest groups who have replaced average Americans as the Democrats’ Voting Base, leading to a push toward changing America into a Marxist Nation.
Hate, envy, and control are the “pillars of faith” in Marxism in all of its forms, along with fascism.
All of these political philosophies are the anti-thesis of who the Far Left Democrats claim to be.
However, since they assumed absolute power in Washington, D.C., their actions have shown average Americans EXACTLY who they are.
Ladies and gentlemen, I firmly believe that America is in the middle of fighting a new war against fascism which has now grown so radical as to reach the Biblical Book of Revelation levels.
If this effort by the “New Bolsheviks” is allowed to go unchecked, it will not be our Brightest and Best who will die on this field of battle, but rather, it will be our Constitutional Freedoms and our form of government, including our System of Checks and Balances, which will die ignoble death, pierced by the arrows of the “New Fascism”, going under the non de plumes of “socialism”, “Wokeness”, and “political correctness”.
Fascism, in any form, remains indefensible.
All of this unethical political behavior by the Far Left Democrats is reminiscent of both the Russian Revolution and Hitler and his Brown Shirts’ “Beer Hall Putsch” which probably should have been expected, given the “New Bolsheviks” track record of Liberal Intolerance and aversion to opposing viewpoints.
Just as my Daddy did when he landed on Normandy Beach on June 6, 1944 with thousands of other brave young American men, we must look this “New Fascism” straight in the face and say, “NO MORE!”
And, Ms. Benner…if anyone is an “Enemy of the State”, is it you and the rest of those instigating and supporting this New Fascism that threatens to destroy America.
