Jalina Porter has been named deputy spokesperson for the for the U.S. State Department under President Biden, but her words from the past are too dangerous to be ignored.
Porter has a rather vocal history of being anti-police, even going as far as claiming that police officers could be “the largest threat to U.S. national security.”
Porter went on an anti-cop tirade in a facebook post from 2016 where she claimed that that U.S. cops posed the largest national security threat, greater than that of both Russian hackers and ISIS, because of killings of Black Americans.
“The largest threat to U.S. national security are U.S. cops,” Porter said, as reported by The Washington Free Beacon. “Not ISIS, not Russian hackers, not anyone or anything else.”
“If ya’ll don’t wake up and rise up to this truth, the genocide against Blacks in America will continue until we are near extinct,” Porter said. “That’s not the world I seek to live in or create for myself and those around me.”
Organizations like Black Lives Matter engaged in violent protests against police throughout 2020 – which in some cases, even led to the death of Black officers.
Porter previously served as a congressional staff member for Rep. Jerry McNerney and former Rep. Cedric Richmond, who is a White House senior adviser. Porter also worked for the Truman National Security Project, a nonprofit national security and foreign policy think tank.
The Biden pick is a follow-through on Biden’s promise to have “the most progressive administration in history.”
When it comes to progressivism, however, the White House is far from alone, as radicals too fill the seats of congress.
Newly elected “squad” member Rep. Cori Bush on Monday received vocal support from Black Lives Matter on a proposal to investigate and potentially expel Republicans who opposed certifying the 2020 presidential election results following a deadly siege on Capitol Hill carried out by Trump supporters.
“It is not enough to denounce the white supremacy behind the attack,” the group wrote on its website. “We must remove its endorsers from Congress – Ted Cruz, Josh Hawley, Lauren Boebert, Marjorie Taylor Greene, and the over 100 Republicans who voted against certifying the Electoral College.”
Bush introduced a resolution earlier this month that would “initiate investigations for removal” targeting those who attempted to overturn the election results and “incited a White supremacist-attempted coup.”
The proposal is based on the claim that some of these conservatives engaged in sedition against the U.S. – or incited rebellion against the government.
More than 140 Republicans in Congress voted to overturn the results of the election, which former President Donald Trump pointed out was “stolen” from him by fraudulent means.
Sens. Josh Hawley and Ted Cruz in particular have come under fire for roles Democrats allege they played in inciting the violent pro-Trump riot on Capitol Hill, where several lives were lost.
Hawley and Cruz both made clear in the days leading up to Jan. 6 that they did not intend to certify the results, leaning on Trump’s fraud claims.
Senate Democrats filed an ethics complaint last week to investigate whether the pair coordinated with rioters.
Both have denied that they were trying to overturn the election or incite riots, saying they were instead seeking to ensure a free and fair election process. Hawley and Cruz have each condemned the events of Jan. 6.
