There's absolutely a new War on Terror being initiated — it'd been lurking for awhile, but it's accelerating now for obvious reasons. This new one is aimed inward, domestically. It entails many of the same frameworks.

The same tactic used against critics of the first War on Terror would be used for the new one: demonizing those who question its excesses as "pro-terrorist."

A key ally for the Dems in this domestic War on Terror will be the same media outlets who have acted as their spokespeople since 2016.
