GOP Rep.: Biden Has ‘Weaponized the Federal Government Against the American People’

Congressman Chip Roy (R-TX)

( – Republican US Rep. Chip Roy has accused President Joe Biden and the Democratic Party of “weaponizing” the US government “against the American people.”

Roy, who was just reelected for a third term to represent Texas’s 21st congressional district in the US House of Representatives, spoke during a panel on congressional oversight of the executive branch.

He insisted the way the Biden administration has used the federal government against its people should be exposed, as cited by Breitbart News.

“I think it’s important to know the extent to which this administration … has weaponized the federal government against the American people. It ain’t enough to have some hearings and call some people in and yell at them,” Roy argued.

“The American people need to see a lot of the things that they have not been seeing, but then you need to connect that with the actions of government,” said the lawmaker who previously served as GOP US Sen. Ted Cruz’s chief of staff.

Roy went on to list cases in which the US government was used against the people, including the Loudoun County, Virginia, rape cover-up by the local school board, which saw the victim’s father, Scott Smith, targeted by law enforcement.

“The Department of Justice was very clearly collaborating with the National School Board Association with the White House to politicize … a father, a citizen, for walking into a school board meeting in Leesburg, Virginia, to challenge that school board for what happened to his daughter,” Roy said

“I could go through 10 examples, that one is enough for me to want to burn the place down. I’m not talking about nibbling around the edges, burn the place down,” the Republican lawmaker declared.

He blasted the Environmental Protection Agency spending getting Joe Robertson, a 77-year-old Navy vet, a 1.5-year sentence “for building four ponds on his ranch.”

“It’s not just the FBI, it’s all of them. We’re talking about defunding a part of an agency so that it goes away if it’s been proven to be orchestrated against the American people,” Chip Roy stated.

He also recalled how the federal government targeted Americans in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

“Some people want to memory hole COVID. I do not. It is one of the biggest travesties that has occurred in the history of Western civilization in this world,” Roy said.

“What unfolded with the power of government being used and weaponized against the American people to get a needle jammed in your arm by the power, the demand of the federal government, while Pfizer and Moderna make $100 billion,” he elaborated.

“Republicans are taking on the weaponization of government, the federal deep state. If you do that across several issues, and you tie those together into one theme, now you’re cooking with peanut oil, you can actually go do something,” the Texas US representative insisted.
