Why the White House Downplayed ‘White Supremacy’ Video as a Threat to National Security

By Brianne P. KomanoffAhead of President Donald Trump’s first 100 days in office, the White, State and local governments around the country are struggling to get their work done.

A few weeks ago, the president signed an executive order that calls for more federal spending to address the opioid epidemic.

While the order is supposed to help with treatment and addiction, there are a few ways in which the White house is trying to undermine efforts to address this epidemic.

The administration is trying its best to paint the opioid crisis as a civil rights issue and to blame the epidemic on people who are struggling with addiction and mental health issues.

It’s a tactic that is not only counterproductive but it is also incredibly harmful.

The White House is also trying to paint any mention of the epidemic as a white supremacy issue and has made clear that this is a non-issue.

In an email sent to members of Congress on Monday, White House Deputy Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said that there are “some very powerful voices out there who are pushing to erase any sense of history or the history of our country, and the history and culture that have been built upon racism.”

“The President’s recent Executive Order calling for more funding for substance abuse treatment and prevention programs does not address the root causes of the opioid addiction epidemic,” Sanders continued.

“Rather, it simply reinforces and reinforces the harmful racial politics that are at the heart of the current crisis.”

White House officials have gone as far as to call opioid addiction a civil right issue.

White House Press Secretary Stephanie Grisham tweeted last week that “there is no question that opioid addiction is a human right and deserves the same protections as anyone else.”

White House press secretary Sarah Sanders was also quoted by the New York Times in an article about the opioid issue that cited a March 2015 speech given by former Vice President Joe Biden that focused on how the opioid war had created a “black market” in drugs that made addicts vulnerable to predators and criminals.

“We know from the experience of other countries like South Africa, where they have had massive opioid-related epidemics, that if you can’t get the drugs on the street, the police won’t be able to get the drug on the streets,” Biden said in the speech.

“This is why we have to make it much harder for law enforcement to do their jobs.

And this is why the drug war, when it’s over, we will all be better off.”

Sanders, along with other White House officials, has tried to paint Trump’s opioid orders as a national security issue, arguing that they are meant to keep Americans safe and to prevent crime.

But the reality is that this order is only meant to protect the opioid industry and to increase the profits of the pharmaceutical companies that make opioids.

The White House has also sought to paint a false picture about the epidemic that is only in the public eye because it is being pushed by a few right-wing websites that have attacked the opioid recovery efforts.

“The opioid epidemic is not about the black or brown, it is about the white and rich,” a White House spokesperson told reporters.

“It is about profits and access.”

WhiteHouse Press SecretarySarah Sanders said the president is committed to the opioid problem, but that the President wants to be careful that it doesn’t become the excuse for the criminal justice system.

“The WhiteHouse is focused on making sure that we have the resources and the tools to address opioid addiction, not by punishing law-abiding citizens,” Sanders said.

“When we have resources and tools to treat addiction and help those struggling with the opioid disease, that is where we want to be.”

It’s important to note that the opioid overdose death rate has remained largely unchanged since the early 2000s.

The number of people who have died from opioids in the U.S. has dropped by almost half since then.

The opioid crisis has also affected communities of color.

In 2016, nearly 50,000 people of color died of opioid overdoses, compared to just 2,200 deaths in 2016.

White, Latino, Asian and Native American communities are all disproportionately affected by the opioid death rate, and their deaths are disproportionately related to opioid addiction.

White House Press Assistant Stephanie Grishesam, who is part of the administration’s opioid strategy, has also tried to discredit the opioid abuse crisis.

“These opioid deaths are a wake-up call to the fact that there is a growing epidemic of opioid addiction,” Grishams Twitter account wrote in an April 10 statement that was subsequently deleted.

“Addiction is a disease, and we must fight it in every way possible.”

But the opioid response has not been successful in tackling the epidemic.

Last week, a new report from the American Academy of Addiction Medicine, which has been working with the National Institute of Health and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, found that the number of deaths from opioid overdoses was only about one-third what it was 10 years ago.

This was the first time
