Deputy spokeswoman for President Joe Biden’s U.S. State Department Jalina Porter called police officers the “largest threat to U.S. national security,” according to the Washington Free Beacon.
“The largest threat to U.S national security are U.S cops,” Porter said in a Facebook post from 2016. “Not ISIS, not Russian hackers, not anyone or anything else.”
Porter’s comments appear to be in reference to an unarmed black man being shot by officers in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
“An unarmed Black man takes a knee for justice, bigots riot,” Porter wrote. “An unarmed black man (with his hands raised) takes a bullet and dies, these same bigots are silent. Explain this to me, please.”
“If y’all don’t wake up and rise up to this truth, the genocide against Blacks in America will continue until we are near extinct,” continued Porter.
“I am calling out the majority because this means you need to take action… in your communities, churches, classrooms, and with your Members of Congress,” said Porter. “We can’t do this alone.”
Porter reiterated her thoughts on the police on Twitter. She doubled down by calling the police “the Blue Klux Klan” in 2016, according to OANN’s Jack Posobiec.
At the time of the post, Porter was working for the Truman National Security Project, a left-leaning think-tank that also employed Hunter Biden. Porter also served as a congressional staff member for Democrat Reps. Jerry McNerney and Cedric Richmond.
