DHS Was Monitoring Social Media for Roe v. Wade Reactions

Yahoo! News broke a fairly large story this week regarding a DHS bulletin that was issued after Roe v. Wade was overturned.

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) started to monitor social media for people's reactions to identify possible threats.

Attorney General Merrick Garland reportedly approved this

The bulletin was reportedly written by the Office of Intelligence and Analysis (I&A), which falls under the DHS umbrella.

DHS responded to the report, stating, "I&A regularly shares information with federal, state, and local law enforcement partners to prevent, protect against, or better respond to targeted violence and terrorism."

Most of us would understand posts being monitored for threats of violence.

However, this gets a bit murky when you consider recent revelations of how the Biden administration was working with social media platforms to censor people and shut down what it deemed misinformation and disinformation.

For instance, were people supporting the ruling unjustly monitored or did they have their accounts suspended or shut down?

The GOP has hammered the DHS for "politicizing" the department and abusing its power to shut down free speech.

DHS provided a statement to Fox News on the matter.

It stated, "DHS engages in a community-based approach to prevent terrorism and targeted violence and does so in ways that protect privacy, civil rights, and civil liberties, and that adhere to all applicable laws.

"To that end, DHS regularly shares information regarding the heightened threat environment with federal, state, local, tribal, and territorial officials to ensure the safety and security of all communities across the country.

"Since 2021, DHS has issued more than 110 unclassified intelligence products related to domestic violent extremism, as well as six National Terrorism Advisory System (NTAS) bulletins that contextualize the evolving threat environment for the public and provide resources for how to stay safe."
