It's thrown out there to delegitimize and shut down discussion.
Surely you realized this way before the narrative switch to "domestic terrorist".

I did, I just didn't realize the terms switched until yesterday. Haven't really given two shits about the discussion.

"Domestic terrorist" give the gubmint cover to further violate the 4th Amendment for those engaging in "wrongthink" or anyone else deemed enemies of the State.

Agreed. We saw how the FBI lied about Carter Page and especially with Kevin Clinesmith to bypass the 4th amendment. Now with the broad term of domestic terrorist, it allows tearing down of general population protections.

Yeah...she “suggested”.... :rofl:

Next you’re going to agree with me that Al Awaki strike was wrong too?

It was wrong...and I’m willing to wager that Wallace would agree...

Yet, she brings up the possibility of doing it against Trump supporters...

If you don’t understand the rhetorical nature of that question and who is asking it, there’s no hope for you on this one, Colonel.

Was the question rhetorical or leading?

And if it was rhetorical, doesn't that mean that she is advocating for striking against people who incite "domestic terrorism or extremism"?

I still don't understand how MAGAts are domestic terrorists or extremists and BLM/AnTiFa rioters aren't. Where is that line drawn? It seems to be based on whether someone agrees with the cause and ideology.

I don’t know. Not my video and it didn’t show enough of the discussion to make that call.

I warned conservatives about government overreach during the Portland riots and I'll warn liberals now. Any law that expands the power of the government to restrict conservative causes/actors can also be used to restrict liberal causes/actors in the future.
