A brand spanking new spokesperson for the State Department, Jalina Porter, stated in a Facebook post back in 2016 that the “largest threat to U.S. national security are the U.S. cops.”
A screenshot of this post was taken and posted by the Washington Free Beacon just in case someone got wise and deleted it later.
“The largest threat to U.S. national security are U.S. cops,” Porter posted. “Not ISIS, not Russian hackers, not anyone or anything else.”
The comments were made by Porter back in September of 2016. It appears they were made in reference to video footage that was released that day featuring an unarmed black man being shot by police officers in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
“An unarmed Black man takes a knee for justice, bigots riot,” she stated in her post. “An unarmed black man (with his hands raised) takes a bullet and dies, these same bigots are silent. Explain this to me, please.”
Porter, a former top aide in the congressional office of now-top Biden White House adviser Cedric Richmond, added, “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.” At the time of the post, Porter was working as a communications official for the Truman National Security Project, a left-leaning foreign policy think-tank that previously employed Hunter Biden. Porter is also a former dancer for the NFL’s Oakland Raiders and the NBA’s Washington Wizards.
The State Department did not respond to multiple Free Beacon requests for comment on the posting. Emails sent to Porter via her website and to an address provided on it were not returned by press time.
The resurfaced comments could complicate the State Department’s messaging as it seeks to challenge Iran’s nuclear buildup, continue the fight against ISIS, and shape its response to the many ongoing national security threats posed by China, Russia, and the Islamic Republic. Tony Blinken, the department’s new secretary, was confirmed on Tuesday.
Well, I don’t know about you, but I’m totally not at all shocked to see the Biden administration being pumped full of radical, cop-hating liberals and those who push critical race theory.
In fact, I think this was to be expected. However, these are not the kind of people who should be occupying positions in public service. Perhaps there are better choices for the job of State Department spokesperson?
Just a thought.
