U.S. Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL), during an interview on FNC’s “Hannity” on Friday, forewarned the strong possibility of the incoming Biden administration readying itself to use national security against political opposition.
House Rep. Gaetz told host Sean Hannity that he and several members of the House and Senate, were being specifically targeted for objecting to the election results authenticity.
“[W]e should take note of the language that the left is using — chemical warfare, insurrection, domestic terrorism,” he said. “That’s not by accident, Sean. There are exquisite authorities in our national laws that allow our government to do things to terrorists that we would never allow against our own people. But in the incoming Biden administration, they want to use national security authorities against MAGA. They’re targeting Mo Brooks, Paul Gosar, Andy Biggs, Louie Gohmert, Madison Cawthorn and myself because we had the nerve to actually stand up and point out the need for election integrity.”
“And we also pointed out their hypocrisy, because for all of the criticism that they have leveled against Donald Trump unfairly, they were the cheerleaders, fundraisers and apologists for the people who burned our cities, attacked our police and were on offense against the very notion of America for months this summer,”
Gaetz continued. “They don’t want to account for that. Joe Biden doesn’t want to answer for it. Certainly, Kamala Harris doesn’t. And so, they are going to go after the president and his allies and they’re going to use national security authorities that you should never use against our fellow Americans.”
This undoubtedly can have unprecedented consequences if the power of the U.S. government can be manipulated, with a few choice words, to silence those of opposing political viewpoints.
