Biden’s Counter-Extremism Committee Includes CCP Advocates and Far-Left Twitter Trolls.

Members of President Biden’s newly launched Counter Extremism Working Group include individuals who’ve advocated on behalf of Chinese Communist Party-linked companies and far-left Twitter trolls. The group – comprised overwhelmingly of left-wing activists – is tasked with advising the Secretary of Defense on how to “counter extremism and counter terrorism to better understand the scope of the problem.” Among its members is the Director of the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) National Security Project Hina Shamsi, who advocated strongly against former President Donald Trump’s efforts to ban Chinese Communist Party-compromised apps including TikTok and WeChat.
