During his first joint address to Congress last night, Joe Biden repeated the extremely misleading but increasingly popular talking point on the left that “white supremacist terror,” not Islamic extremism, is the biggest terror threat facing America.
Make no mistake, in 20 years terrorism has metastasized, the threat has evolved way beyond Afghanistan Those who are on the intelligence committees, the Foreign Relations Committee, the defense committees, you know well, we have to remain vigilant against the threats to the United States wherever they come from. Al Qaeda and ISIS are in Yemen, Syria, Somalia, other places in Africa and the Middle East and beyond.
And we won’t ignore what our intelligence agencies have determined to be the most lethal terrorist threat to the homeland today, white supremacist terrorism. We’re not going to ignore that either.
