Newly uncovered government documents show the Biden administration giving “anti-terrorism” grants to university programs that actually appear to promote terrorism against pro-life advocates and conservatives.
In one taxpayer-funded program, a professor and self-proclaimed member of Antifa admitted that “a lot of things we’re doing are illegal” and “a lot of it involves breaking the law,” according to the documents.
Antifa is believed to be behind a number of attacks on pro-life organizations in the past year, possibly including the fire that heavily damaged CompassCare pregnancy center in New York.
The disturbing revelations come from documents from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) obtained by the Media Research Center through a Freedom of Information Act request. They provide details about the DHS Targeted Violence & Terrorism Prevention Grant Program.
“Instead of focusing on preventing actual violence and terrorism, the program is now being used to target the entire spectrum of the political right and Christians through ‘media literacy and online critical thinking initiatives’ and other so-called training seminars as part of a coordinated effort to make America into a one-party system,” the MRC investigation found.

One particularly disturbing revelation was the grant to the University of Dayton in Ohio. The university received $352,109 to create the PREVENTS-OH program to fight “domestic violence extremism and hate movements.”
It appears the program actually did the opposite.
One of the program lectures was given by University of Cincinnati research fellow Michael Loadenthal, “a self-proclaimed member of Antifa whose Twitter feed is rife with posts celebrating acts of left-wing violence,” according to MRC.
Loadenthal admitted in his lecture that “a lot of things we’re doing are illegal” and “a lot of it involves breaking the law,” MRC found.
In one PREVENTS-OH seminar titled “White Nationalism Workshop,” Loadenthal explained how activists can put pressure on “financial services” like “GoFundMe, Patreon, PayPal, Venmo” and other companies to “kick off” conservatives with whom he disagrees, the investigation continues.
Here’s more from MRC:
Loadenthal likewise complained about “right-wing” social media platforms that provide “free speech” and celebrated “de-platform[ing]” so-called fascists (which he used interchangeably with “the right”) from Twitter and Facebook. He even gave specific advice on how to create dummy accounts on social media platforms like Gab, Telegram and Rumble in order to “paralyze” movements and “manufacture … infighting.” …
Censorship efforts are not enough to fight against so-called fascists, Loadenthal outrageously claimed, also calling for a more aggressive approach. “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 claimed.
Loadenthal also displayed infographic instructions to teach attendees how to “infiltrate” social media platforms to “identify targets, create dossiers … surveil, interfere, misdirect [and] disrupt” those the left opposes.
His lecture also included an image titled the “Pyramid of Far-Right Radicalization” that he claimed shows “modern far-right” extremists in the U.S. Organizations on the image included the Republican Party, The Heritage Foundation, Fox News, Breitbart News, the National Rifle Association, PragerUniversity, Tea Party Patriots, the MAGA movement, the pro-police Blue Lives Matter movement and the Christian Broadcasting Network, according to the documents.
MRC uncovered another University of Dayton seminar that “compared former President Donald Trump to [murderous dictator] Pol Pot and suggested Florida Governor Ron DeSantis might wish to start a second Holocaust.”
This was just one grant. According to the documents, the Biden administration awarded 80 “anti-terrorism” grants worth $39.6 million to universities, local governments and activist organizations, including the LGBTQ advocacy group Out Boulder County.
The new documents add to growing concerns that the Biden administration is using the Department of Justice, FBI and other agencies as a weapon against its political opponents. Peaceful pro-life advocates have had their homes raided by FBI agents, while arson attacks on pro-life organizations go unpunished. Last month, a Michigan man who shot an elderly pro-life woman only received a sentence of community service, a year of probation and a suspended jail sentence of two months.
Meanwhile, pro-life advocates have become increasing targets of vandalism and violence. LifeNews counted about 250 attacks in 2022, including ten arson/attempted arson attacks.
Many pro-life organizations are increasing security and Republican lawmakers are demanding action from the Biden administration to crack down on the growing pro-abortion domestic terrorism. But, while the Biden administration has been aggressively working to expand the killing of unborn babies in abortions, it has done little to stop the hostilities directed at pro-life advocates and churches.
Frustrated by the inaction, a New York pregnancy resource center recently launched its own private investigation into a June arson attack that caused more than half a million dollars in damage and injured two firefighters.
