Far-left Rep. Jackie Speier is now demanding the Biden Regime vet the social media accounts of ALL military recruits and active duty members for possible links to extremist groups.
Independent Sentinel Congresswoman Jackie Speier (CA-14), Chair of the House Armed Services Military Personnel Subcommittee, in a letter sent Friday called on President Biden, Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin, and DNI Avril Haines to issue an executive order identifying white supremacy and violent extremism as a critical threat to national security and directing agencies to screen for violent extremism on social media for all incoming military recruits and those seeking government security clearances.
Chair Speier wrote, “The Fiscal Year 2021 National Defense Authorization Act includes provisions to improve tracking and reporting of white-supremacist and violent-extremist activities by servicemembers and to establish a Deputy Inspector General responsible, in part, for monitoring and evaluating DoD’s response to these threats. But these actions are not nearly enough.
At the insistence of President Trump, the conferees dropped my provision to create a standalone violent extremism offense under the Uniform Code of Military Justice, despite DoD’s support for this policy change.
She added. “Social media is not viewed during the military’s accessions process or even as part of the background investigations process for security clearances.”
Speier wrote she was “increasingly alarmed” by the connections between military personnel and violent extremists and that the current approach by the Pentagon and the federal government was “insufficient to the threat from extremist movements.” Because they found a couple of police and military among the mob at the Capitol on January 6th, she paints all police and military with the same brush.
Speier sits on the House Armed Services Committee and probably only wants military loyal to the Left. She regularly paints innocent people on the Right as terrorists.
Speier compared access to contraception to the Boko Haram kidnappings, sending out a tweet that compared access to contraception to the kidnapping of hundreds of Nigerian girls by the militant group Boko Haram.
Speier included an infographic from the United Nations along with the hashtag #BringBackOurGirls, which is a reference to the kidnapping of 230 girls from the Chibok Government Secondary School.
Does anyone with a functioning brain think that Boko Haram, a group whose name translates to “Western education is forbidden,” would not have kidnapped those girls if only the girls were given access to abortions and contraception?
Even worse, Speier said that the CIA should apologize to Islamic terrorists for the agency’s response to 9/11. She also wants white supremacy declared a national security emergency, but not Antifa or Black Lives Matter. Democrats rejected the idea of vetting immigrants’ social media accounts, but Speier thinks that Americans who want to serve their country are fair game.
