NJ Homeland Security Warns Of Extremists Using Covid-19 To Push Agendas

As states remain closed due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the New Jersey Office of the Department of Homeland Security is warning that far-right extremists are using anti-lockdown protests and rallies as platforms to push their agendas. 

“Far-right extremists are likely leveraging anti-lockdown sentiments nationwide as an attempt to spread their anti-government extremist messages, intimidate law enforcement, and force governmental change,” the Department of Homeland Security said in an analysis.

In New Jersey, the New Jersey European Heritage Association (NJEHA) altered its propaganda narrative and social media posts to fit claims that immigration and Jewish people are behind the Covid-19 pandemic. Since then, NJEHA members have attended several anti-lockdown events are the state where they push a message that claims people need to combat left-leaning groups working on behalf of “wealthy Jewish donors” before they destroy the American way of life. On May 19, members of the NJEHA attended a gathering in support of a business reopening. During the gathering, group members interacted with the crowd and passed out recruitment flyers, which called upon “American patriots” to help combat leftists groups and individuals. Additionally, social media accounts linked to the group called for others to support the reopening of the business in defiance of Governor Murphy, whom they allude is a tyrant and “Jewish puppet.”

The Department of Homeland Security said that while they recognize and honor Americans’ right to assemble, speak, and petition the government, they must also ensure the protection of those rights for all, noting that violent extremists could disrupt legal activities, interfering with otherwise peaceful events.

  • Like it needs to be said says:

    Wait, people pushing their agendas? Oh you mean like the leftists pushing their agenda on us throughout this whole thing. Of course. A little too
    little too late by Homeland Insecurity.

  • wrong side says:

    nooo, those are called law abiding citizens begging for the right to provide for their families. They are calm and respectful & certainly not intimidating anyone.

    The bad guys are the ones joining the Antifa protests. there you’ll see looting, burning & yes, intimidating police men.

    Use your resources where they are actually needed, use your voice when you speak the truth. Otherwise you lose the respect of the people.

    And where did this story come from, the new Twitter fact checker.

  • Ron Benvenisti says:

    To #1. And what do you all have to say about the recent highly sophisticated and targeted cyber-attacks into medical facilities, law enforcement agencies, and the government, bringing them to their knees when the public needs them the most to respond. If you think the brilliant and dedicated workers at Homeland Security, at the State level (and especially New Jersey) and at the Federal levels don’t have their hands full with new challenges every day, you must be, literally an ignoramus. You can’t hold a candle to these people and you know it.

    BTW, the Twitter fact-checker comment is ridiculous to even bring up. Sure it is a problem, but to associate it with this official communication is completely disingenuous.

    I believe in the “far-right” idea that doctors should “first do no harm”. If only the same could be applied to politicians…

    The mandatory lock-downs have made life worse for millions of people: unemployment, missed education, stress, depression, weight gain, reduced healthcare access for other vital needs, etc, etc, etc. There’s an increase in substance abuse, suicides, heart attacks, domestic violence, unrestrained growth of government power…

  • Ron Benvenisti says:

    It has now been confirmed that the sophisticated cyber-attacks on Police, Government Agencies, and Medical Facilities came from South Korea, China, and Iran. The consensus is that the timing is not a coincidence with the riots. Watch the show.
