DHS says sowing doubt in gov't is domestic terrorism! What's the punishment?

The Department of Homeland Security has issued an ominous bulletin with echoes of the infamous PATRIOT Act, concerning the proliferation of “misleading or false narratives undermining public trust in government institutions and ultimately "inspiring" acts of terroristic violence. Investigative journalist Ben Swann weighs in. He argues that the move conflicts with the right of free speech and freedom of conscience. He calls it “utterly Draconian at every level.”

Meanwhile, the Freedom Convoy in Canada’s capital of Ottawa continues in the face of harsher words from frustrated PM Trudeau and increased force from police to clear the Freedom Convoy from the site of their ongoing protest. RT America’s John Huddy reports from the scene. The protests may have informed the decision of two provincial governments in Canada to roll back some of the public health regulations targeted by Freedom Convoy ire. The protest inspired smaller and ongoing protests in Australia, UK, the US and beyond.
