Protect America against all enemies, foreign and domestic

Every public official in America has sworn an oath to defend our Constitution “against all enemies, foreign and domestic.” Yet, it’s long been taboo even to acknowledge that we may have domestic enemies. Today, such willful blindness is not only untenable. It can be fatal.

Night after night, we’ve witnessed such enemies operating under the banner of seditious entities like the Marxist-anarchist Antifa. They have violently exploited legitimate protests to sow chaos and endanger public safety.

It’s particularly troubling that Minnesota – the state first afflicted with such attacks – has as its top law enforcement officer Attorney General Keith Ellison, a man with a long history of publicly associating himself with Antifa, other radical leftist and Muslim Brotherhood operatives.

We must be clear-eyed about the reality that we do have enemies, foreign and domestic – and protect our country and Constitution against them all.

This is Frank Gaffney.
