On January 13, 2017, Homeland Security announced grants made by the outgoing Homeland administration in an effort to focus its efforts on countering Radical Islam.
One of the grantee groups, Life After Hate was awarded $400,000 from the outgoing Obama administration.
The chairman of Life After Hate, Christian Picciolini, has published tweets for months calling for the Trump administration to be overthrown.
In light of his group receiving $400,000 this year from Homeland and the current Homeland administration reevaluating such grants, these treasonous tweets by Mr. Picciolini are significant.
Why are our tax dollars going to this Trump-bashing organizer?
I am all too well aware of Bannon's white nationalist and fake news ties. This is pure DANGER.

Nice knowing ya. People like me, most journalists, POC, peace activists, cops & educators, wake up tomorrow with fresh targets on our backs.
