Per NPR:

Michigan congresswoman Elissa Slotkin says the end date for America’s singular focus on threats from foreign terrorists has come and gone.
“January 6, for me, kind of capped the end of the post-9/11 era,” says the former CIA analyst who served in Iraq and personally briefed both George W. Bush on Barack Obama on foreign terror threats.
As chair of a House Homeland Security subcommittee, Slotkin says the Capitol attack proves combating domestic violent extremism has to be America’s number one national security priority.”

While it is said that the government should fear its own people to keep it in check, the reality of that fear and the way the federal government is reacting by expanding the power and focus of its secret police should be concerning for everyone.
