This is a big, big deal, folks. During an interview with Mark Levin aired Sunday night on Fox News, Attorney General William Barr took the gloves completely off regarding the Black Lives Matter domestic terrorist group that, along with Antifa, serves as the insurrectionist arm of the Democrat Party.
Some of Mr. Barr’s quotes appear below. Read them carefully and you will see the U.S. Attorney General speaking with perfectly clear eyes about the true nature of BLM, which is indistinguishable from its fellow Democrat-sponsored terrorist group, Antifa, as I have been pointing out to readers here for weeks now:
Discussing the ongoing Black Lives Matter riots rippling through several U.S. cities, Barr told host Mark Levin that the organization — which has been characterized by the media as a fed-up activist group — is comprised of “Bolsheviks” with a focus on on “some form of socialism, communism.”
“They are a revolutionary group that is interested in some form of socialism, communism. They’re essentially Bolsheviks. Their tactics are fascistic,” he said.
Barr compared the nationwide riots organized by Antifa to “a new form of urban guerrilla warfare.”
“The way the guerrilla…hides out among the people as a fish in the ocean…what they do is they are essentially shielding themselves or shrouding themselves in First Amendment activity,” he explained. “They go into the demonstrations, which are exercising First Amendment activity, and they insinuate themselves in there to shield themselves. That’s where they swim. And what they do is they hijack these demonstrations and they and they provoke violence.”
Now, watch as Barr links Antifa/BLM directly to their sponsors in the communist Democrat Party:
The group’s radical leanings are reflective of the Democratic party’s far-left shift in recent years, Barr said. “The left has “pulled away from the umbrella of classical liberal values that have undergirded” America and made a “secular religion” out of seeking “complete political victory,” he argued.
It began the day Trump won in 2016, “and from that point forward, there’s been the resistance,” Barr told Levin. “They were trying to impeach him from Day One. They have done everything they can..and I think it’s because of the desire for power that the left wants.”
Power has become a “secular religion of the left,” Barr asserted. “They want to run people’s lives so they can design utopia for all of us…and it’s the lust for power. And they weren’t expecting Trump’s victory. And it outrages them.”
Man, it’s like he’s been reading Today’s Campaign Update or something.
I mentioned this in the Monday News Roundup, but it deserves special focus: These comments and more that Mr. Barr made during his interview with Levin are not normal. They are not the ordinary, scripted talking points you see attorneys general roll out in the normal course of their daily business. AGs are normally careful not to offend the opposition party in congress, especially when it controls a majority of the House of Representatives and thus the DOJ budget.
Barr’s remarks here are essentially a notice to Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer and Joe Biden’s elder-abusing handlers that the gloves are now off. No more playing by the Marquess of Queensbury rules in which one punch is politely exchanged for another. Barr’s rhetoric signals that he’s now going into cage match mode.
It is also important to note the implications of Barr’s truth-telling about BLM as it relates the pro sports and entertainment industry. Barr’s equation of BLM with Antifa is a de facto declaration that he considers BLM a domestic terrorist organization, as he does Antifa.
This would be the very same BLM group whose logo now appears on NBA uniforms and courts; the same BLM group whose logo appears on Major League Baseball uniform jerseys; the same BLM group whose logos will appear on NFL uniforms this fall unless something changes. It is the very same BLM group to which everyone in Hollywood and the news media has genuflected and declared their undying fealty.
This is a big, big deal. Let’s hope we don’t see any “clarifying statements” from DOJ today trying to walk any of it back. BLM/Antifa and their communist Democrat sponsors are direct threats to our nation’s survival, and it is impossible to defeat an enemy unless you can first properly identify them with clear, focused eyes.
That is all.
