DHS Funding Program Linking Conservatives & Christians to Nazis
The Department of Homeland Security used an anti-terrorism program to fund a “media literacy” initiative linking religious and conservative organizations to neo-Nazis and white supremacists, documents reveal.
The Biden administration is once again funneling taxpayer money through DHS’s Targeted Violence and Terrorism Prevention Grant Program (TVTP) to a university program that has explicitly placed the Republican Party, as well as Christian and conservative groups, into the same category as Nazis, according to documents shared exclusively with Fox News Digital.
The Media Research Center, a conservative watchdog group, obtained documents through Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests showing a Department of Homeland Security (DHS) program meant to fight terrorism is funding a group whose work has explicitly targeted the American political right. The MRC outlined its findings in a report, arguing what the group found warrants criminal prosecution.

“This terrorism task force is engaged in an active effort to demonize and eliminate Christian, conservative, and Republican organizations using federal taxpayer dollars,” said Brent Bozell, founder and president of the Media Research Center. “What we have uncovered calls for criminal prosecution. The American people need to know those who are abusing their positions in the federal government will be held accountable for their criminal behavior.”
DHS’s Targeted Violence and Terrorism Prevention Grant Program (TVTP) is supposed to provide funds to various public, private, and non-profit institutions such as universities and county governments “to establish or enhance capabilities to prevent targeted violence and terrorism.”
As we’ve seen, the Biden Administration is using the program to create the Neo-Stasi that will weaponize the federal government against speech that criticizes them.
The Biden administration has awarded 80 grants through the TVTP totaling just under $40 million. The lowest grant was for $85,000, the highest was over $1.1 million, and the median was about $442,000.
One of the grants given was the University of Dayton for its PREVENTS-OH program, for which DHS awarded $352,109 to “draw on the expertise of the University of Dayton faculty” to fight “domestic violence extremism and hate movements.”
The university’s grant application submitted to DHS is linked in a footnote to a controversial Dayton conference where an academic researcher presented a chart titled the “Pyramid of Far-Right Radicalization.”
Among the organizations and movements listed on the pyramid were the Republican Party, the Heritage Foundation, the American Conservative Union, Fox News, Breitbart News, the National Rifle Association, Prager University, Tea Party Patriots, the Make America Great Again (MAGA) movement, the pro-police Blue Lives Matter movement, and the Christian Broadcasting Network.
The pyramid also included hate groups like The Base, a neo-Nazi paramilitary group, and the Daily Stormer, a pro-Nazi publication, seemingly comparing them to mainstream organizations such as the GOP.
In 2021, the University of Dayton held a seminar called “Extremism, Rhetoric, and Democratic Precarity,” featuring several experts on extremism who compared mainstream conservatives to genocidal extremists.
One speaker at the conference, University of Cincinnati researcher Michael Loadenthal, presented the “Pyramid of Far-Right Radicalization,” portraying it as an accurate depiction of the “modern far-right” and extremism in America.

Loadenthal also described hate speech as an act of war, calling it the “strategic deployment of organizational energy and power,” and called for shutting down forces deemed extremist.
“To deny people that, to shut down their websites, to close their meetings, [and] to physically prevent them from assembling in public — this is the belief,” he said, also displaying an infographic of how “antifascists” can “infiltrate,” “surveil,” and “disrupt” far-right forces.
The MRC report noted that at the same seminar, Alexander Hinton, a Rutgers University faculty member specializing in genocide, compared the Trump administration to the Khmer Rouge. The Khmer Rouge of Pol Pot’s regime in Cambodia killed an estimated 1.5 million-2 million people.
Another speaker, Nicole Widdersheim, deputy Washington director for Human Rights Watch, compared Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis proposing a volunteer civilian military force to assist the National Guard in emergencies such as hurricanes to the Nazis’ Holocaust during World War II.
The Media Research Center has uncovered DHS's 'Anti-Terrorism' chart for labelling conservatives.
Does anyone care to explain what the category four symbols represent?
I didn't know you could get more extreme than Nazism and The Daily Stormer, but apparently you can… pic.twitter.com/DkHFFuJNSJ

“The Media Research Center has uncovered disturbing documentation that proves that the government is colluding with left-wing activists, academics, and state and local officials in an active effort to target some of the most prestigious conservatives and prominent political, religious, and media groups in the country, linking them directly to Nazis and terrorists,” the letter states. “The American people need to know that those who are abusing their positions in the federal government will be held accountable for this criminal behavior.”

“This report only scratches the surface of the Biden DHS’s nefarious TVTP grant program,” the document states. “MRC Free Speech America has obtained more documents from other DHS grantees and other organizations through our concentrated FOIA initiative and will be presenting further evidence of the Biden administration’s efforts to target conservatives, Christians, and the Republican Party going forward.”
