Biden’s DHS Funding College Program Links Family Conservatives To Nazis Under ‘Anti-Terrorism’ Initiative: Report

President Biden’s Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is using American tax dollars to fund a college program that explicitly brings together Christians, Republicans, and conservative organizations like the National Rifle Association (NRA, for its acronym in English) and PragerU with literal Nazis.

Documents obtained through Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests by the conservative watchdog group, the Media Research Center (MRC), and shared with Fox News Digital, reveal that the Grants Program For the Prevention of Violence and Terrorism (TVTP), the DHS awarded $352,109 to the University of Dayton for its PREVENTS-OH program.

According to its website, the PREVENTS-OH program “aims to develop a proactive, informed, and resilient network of conscious and able collaborative organizations, coalitions, and civic entities to prevent domestic violent extremism in Southwest Ohio.”

The money was awarded to “leverage the expertise of University of Dayton faculty” to fight “domestic violence extremism and hate movements,” reports Fox News Digital.

On the university’s DHS grant application there was a footnote linking to a Dayton conference at which the “Fart-Right Radicalization Pyramid” was presented.

At the bottom of the pyramid were Fox News, the Christian Broadcasting Network, the Republican Party, the American Conservative Union Foundation, The Heritage Foundation, the Tea Party Patriots, the John Birch Society, and the NRA.

Going up one notch, the pyramid features, among others, Breitbart News, the Make America Great Again (MAGA) movement, PragerUniversity, Turning Point USA and the Blue Lives Matter pro-police movement.

As the size of the group decreases, the slide explains, the “level of extremism” increases, until you end up with neo-Nazi paramilitary groups like The Base and pro-Nazi publications like the Daily Stormer.

“This counterterrorism task force is engaged in an active effort to demonize and eliminate Christian, conservative and Republican organizations using federal taxpayer dollars,” Brent Bozell, founder and president of the Center for Research on Terrorism, told Fox News Digital. Media. “What we have discovered calls for criminal prosecution. The American people need to know that those who abuse their positions in the federal government will be held accountable for their criminal behavior.”

DHS agent Joseph Masztalics participated in one of the University of Dayton’s first grant-winning seminars, suggesting that “those DHS chooses to fund are compatible with its vision to lead on ‘counterterrorism,'” the Heritage Foundation tweeted. .

Fox News Digital reports: “In 2021, the University of Dayton held a seminar called ‘Extremism, Rhetoric, and Democratic Precariousness’ with several extremism experts who compared mainstream conservatives to genocidal extremists.”

A Rutgers University genocide expert at the seminar compared the Trump administration to Pol Pot’s Khmer Rouge, who killed an estimated 1.5 million to 2 million Cambodians in the 1970s.

The following year, the University of Dayton received a TVTP grant, meaning DHS knew exactly what the controversial seminar had claimed.

But according to a university spokesperson, the seminar was separate from the PREVENTS-OH program.

“The speakers on the shows referenced in the Center for Media Research report are from the University of Dayton Center for Human Rights Social Practice Conference in the fall of 2021, which had no affiliation and predates PREVENTS-OH,” the university said. in a statement to Fox News Digital. “The University of Dayton Center for Human Rights received its PREVENTS-OH grant in the fall of 2022 and, to date, its community awareness events and dialogues have focused on all forms of domestic terrorism, targeted violence and extremism. . As we said when we awarded the grant, ‘We look forward to partnering with Ohioans throughout the Miami Valley across all political and social affiliations and sectors of the community.’”

Apparently, the spokesperson forgot to read the University’s fine print. The statement did not acknowledge his link to the seminary in his grant application.

DHS also claimed that the seminar had nothing to do with the grant.

“This seminar was not funded, organized or sponsored by the Department of Homeland Security,” a DHS spokesperson said. “Similarly, the chart presented was not developed, submitted to, or endorsed by the Department of Homeland Security, and was not part of any successful grant application to the Department of Homeland Security. DHS does not profile, target, or discriminate against any person for exercising their constitutional rights protected by the First Amendment.”

The Heritage Foundation is not convinced.

“Whether it be the FBI, DOJ, IRS or DHS,” the organization tweeted, “it appears that the Biden admin will arm any part of the federal government against his political opponents, even conflating them with terrorists.”
