AG Bill Barr Releases Statement on Riots and Domestic Terrorism: “violence instigated by Antifa is domestic terrorism”……

U.S. Attorney General Bill Barr releases the following statement today:

…”The violence instigated and carried out by Antifa and other similar groups in connection with the rioting is domestic terrorism and will be treated accordingly”…

“With the rioting that is occurring in many of our cities around the country, the voices of peaceful and legitimate protests have been hijacked by violent radical elements. Groups of outside radicals and agitators are exploiting the situation to pursue their own separate, violent, and extremist agenda.

It is time to stop watching the violence and to confront and stop it. The continued violence and destruction of property endangers the lives and livelihoods of others, and interferes with the rights of peaceful protestors, as well as all other citizens.

It also undercuts the urgent work that needs to be done – through constructive engagement between affected communities and law enforcement leaders – to address legitimate grievances. Preventing reconciliation and driving us apart is the goal of these radical groups, and we cannot let them succeed.

It is the responsibility of state and local leaders to ensure that adequate law enforcement resources, including the National Guard where necessary, are deployed on the streets to reestablish law and order. We saw this finally happen in Minneapolis last night, and it worked.

Federal law enforcement actions will be directed at apprehending and charging the violent radical agitators who have hijacked peaceful protest and are engaged in violations of federal law.

To identify criminal organizers and instigators, and to coordinate federal resources with our state and local partners, federal law enforcement is using our existing network of 56 regional FBI Joint Terrorism Task Forces (JTTF).

The violence instigated and carried out by Antifa and other similar groups in connection with the rioting is domestic terrorism and will be treated accordingly.” (link)

Minnesota Attorney General Keith Ellison, a well known Antifa supporter.

      Today it was reported on Tucker Carlson that in California and Atlanta protesters and rioters lined up toe to toe in front of police lines and shouted “Take a knee! Take a knee! Take a knee!” until, unbelievably, the cops all took a knee.

      What does “Take a knee” stand for in the antifa, BLM, Kaepernick vernacular? “Cops are racist, kill cops! Cops are racist, kill cops! Cops are racist, kill cops!”

      What the f___ were these cops thinking?

      They should no more have taken a knee than they should Sieg Heil because a lunatic mob orders them to.

      And Tucker nailed it when he wrapped the segment up by saying that police officers are now obeying the orders of rioters. No wonder they think they can get away with anything.

    Reading social media and seeing the mainstream media report on these riots, is super frustrating. They are claiming that White Nationalists are to blame for all the violence and property damage! They refuse to admit it is antifa and leftists! BTWL That is also what the officials in Minnesota are claiming, including Ellison! This is very frustrating to hear these reports!

      Yeah, same experience here

      I’m just making fun of them, telling them I’m watching white nationalists looting stores in Philly (not, it’s the usual dak-hued fellows, natch)

      When questioned on it I just say “all my friends on facebook are telling me it’s white nationalists looting and burning, I’m just taking them at their word – my friends wouldn’t mislead me would they?”

      I’m also ascribing those pallets of bricks in all the major cities as ordered up by an Illinois Nazi with too much money on his hands, who phoned up White-Nationalists-‘R-Us Masonry Supply and had the bricks helpfully staged at various downtown intersections.

      Just make fun of ’em, man

      Tell ’em you don’t know how they can sleep with all those white nationalists behind their drapes and under their beds

        I disagree. I’m a War College grad too. The point of urban terrorism isn’t to win. It’s to create doubt in the minds of the people that their government can protect them. We are still in the first inning, and Antifa/BLM have succeeded beyond their wildest dreams.

        Winning comes later. In Stage 1 insurgency, the goal of the insurgent is to deny the government’s legitimacy so that people will contemplate change. Well, the visible front groups have been focused on “change” since Obama’s election, and “resistance” for the past three years. This is just taking resistance to the next level.

        Bombings, kidnappings, and assassinations come next.

            I agree, but we underestimate how many of them there are and how intertwined they are with the ethnic communities. They have operated unmolested for at least 10 years and have millions of people who agree with them. How many votes did Bernie get? How many would he have got in a general election if he were the Democratic nominee? There are 40 million unemployed. If even 1 in 1,000 could be persuaded to take part in direct action against the capitalist system, that’s 40,000 fighters right there. This is going to be a long, hard fight and we should not underestimate it.

            Thank you for the pep talk. I agree with everything you just said. I just think it’s going to be a lot longer and harder fight than we expect. We tend to travel in our own circles and talk to people like us and we don’t encounter these people much. There are thousands of hardcore Communists and millions of supporters. Look at who came out to vote for Bernie. Now, everyone isn’t as committed as the hardcores, but they could be persuaded to, say, “Let my brother’s friend crash at your place while he lays low for a while,” or “Bring a package to Steve in Kansas City if you’re headed that way,” that kind of thing. It’s going to be hard to root this out, particularly if they are embedded in the ethnic communities where we have a hard time tracking criminals already.

        Collectivism is the mindset of the left. When one person in a group is guilt, the whole group must be deemed guilty and punished. It’s the basis for racism, and it’s what Antifa is all about.

    Mr. Barr, do you think the fact that to date no one that broke the law, committed treason, lied to the courts, etc…has been indicted, tried and jailed yet has anything to do with the fact that now no one in America has any faith in the law anymore? The FBI, DOJ, NSD, CIA, et al have shown the way to lawlessness? I know you said these things take time but the simple fact is, we do not have time. We do not believe you anymore, we do not trust you anymore, and you and the government have created the conditions of hopelessness and anarchy by doing nothing and hiding everything. Your chickens have come home to roost. No one is listening to your careful rollout of Obamagate. Your window has closed.
    Those of us that were begging you to indict as you “deferred” are no longer on your side. Nothing you can do at this point will ever make us believe you wanted justice. Anything you do as of now is to cover your own ass.

  17. I think people are missing the biggest weekend in modern electoral history.

    This weekend, Trump has redirected the ire of the black community’s distrust of white autocrats, away from the GOP and towards the white liberal leftists that they’ve been voting for.

    For Trump, anything that nets more support above 0 is a positive. He already had enough to win reelection.

    Now he’ll have enough to guarantee a landslide.

    And he’ll have also changed a trend that will never stop and will cripple Democrat’s elections chances in every race, in every district at all levels of voting.

    Listening to the police scanner on line. Small groups scattered all over the city, moving, splitting, doubling back. The bridges are all up. The buses and trains are all stopped. All the locations of the groups are given on the radio. 8 pm curfew already passed.

    Lots of 10-1 calls (police in trouble send everyone), but then quickly withdrawn. it sounds like the anarchists are coordinated and probing, attempting to lure police away from the stations they are guarding. Police not falling for it. Sending units to the violence outbreaks, but keeping the stations guarded.

    expect ZERO prosecutions and arrest to those that financially sponsor and coordinate domestic terrorism in the US. It will not happen.

    and you know why?

    because that actually requires moral leadership …and down on the street in the middle of the fray gum shoe detective work.

    ha..main justice is composed of attorneys who click keyboards, wear sweet ties, and go home at a decent hour ..

    anyone here expecting main justice under this Barr sloth is going to be very disappointed.

    if you WANT CHANGE ON YOUR STREETS..namely the big cities where this is happening. Will require replacing the toxic complicit political types that created space for these criminals.

    these feckless political types do NOT care about justice. They have only one priority: gain power, even if it means looking the other way and ignoring the mob. A mob that has about the same level of credibility as somali terrorists in mogadishu, who rape, pillage and burn their own city for “the cause”.
