AG Barr Destroys Left Over The Claim That Violent Riots Are ‘Protests;’ Here’s What He Said

(Right Country) – Attorney General Bill Barr is a true American hero and is one of the best individuals to have close to the president working to uphold justice in our nation. He proved that today by giving testimony in front of the House Judiciary Committee.

The hearing, which was delayed because of an automobile accident involving committee chairman Rep. Jerrold Nadler — who was not injured in the incident — and featured Barr coming out full tilt against Democrats in scathing opening remarks, countering the nonsense leveled against him of being President Trump’s loyal lapdog.

In these opening remarks, Barr completely annihilates the left over the violent riots that have destroyed so many major cities over the past several months.

Here’s more on this from BizPacReview:

“As I said in my confirmation hearing, the Attorney General has a unique obligation. He holds in trust the fair and impartial administration of justice. He must ensure that there is one standard of justice that applies to everyone equally and that criminal cases are handled evenhandedly, based on the law and the facts, and without regard to political or personal considerations,” Barr addressed the panel after paying respects over the death of their colleague, Rep. John Lewis.

“I can tell you that I have handled criminal matters that have come to me for decision in this way,” he said.

“The President has not attempted to interfere in these decisions. On the contrary, he has told me from the start that he expects me to exercise my independent judgment to make whatever call I think is right. That is precisely what I have done,” Barr added.

“Indeed, it is precisely because I feel complete freedom to do what I think is right that induced me serve once again as Attorney General,” he said, citing his previous stint in the role serving under former President George H. W. Bush, and noting that he was looking forward to retiring, had “nothing to prove” and no desire to return to government.

Barr went on to address the racial tensions that came hot on the heels of George Floyd’s death in Minneapolis, stating that though the incident was “jarring,” our country’s criminal justice system has made massive progress in the previous five decades. He said that one officer’s racism is not the result of “some deep-seated racism generally infecting police departments.”

Barr defended police officers, quoting a number of statistics that demonstrate “the overall number of police shootings has been decreasing.”

“Nevertheless, every instance of excessive force is unacceptable and must be addressed,” he said.

“At the same time, I think it would be an oversimplification to treat the problem as rooted in some deep-seated racism generally infecting our police departments,” Barr added. “It seems far more likely that the problem stems from a complex mix of factors, which can be addressed with focused attention over time. We in law enforcement must be conscious of the concerns and ensure that we do not have two systems of justice.”

“Unfortunately, some have chosen to respond to George Floyd’s death in a far less productive way – by demonizing the police, promoting slogans like ACAB (All Cops Are Bastards), and making grossly irresponsible proposals to defund the police,” Barr continued.

“The demonization of police is not only unfair and inconsistent with the principle that all people should be treated as individuals, but gravely injurious to our inner city communities,” he contended.

Oh, but Barr isn’t finished yet. Here’s the part where he really hammers Democrats over the riots and how folks keep calling them “protests,” which they clearly are not.

Barr went on in his opening statement to address “a different breakdown in the rule of law,” pointing to the “violent rioters and anarchists” that he said have “hijacked legitimate protests,” most notably in Portland. Barr defended the Trump administration’s decision to send federal officers in to quell the unrest, despite the backlash by the left and in the media.

“Every night for the past two months, a mob of hundreds of rioters has laid siege to the federal courthouse and other nearby federal property,” he said, adding that they “arrive equipped for a fight, armed with powerful slingshots, tasers, sledgehammers, saws, knives, rifles, and explosive devices.”

“What unfolds nightly around the courthouse cannot reasonably be called protest; it is, by any objective measure, an assault on the Government of the United States,” he added.

“As elected officials of the federal government, every Member of this Committee – regardless of your political views or your feelings about the Trump Administration – should condemn violence against federal officers and the destruction of federal property,” Barr concluded, thanking Nadler for listening to his concerns.

The Democrat had, in fact, delivered a scathing assessment of Barr.

“Your tenure has been marked by a persistent war against the department’s professional core in an apparent attempt to secure favors for the president,” Nadler said. “In your time at the department, you have aided and abetted the worst failings of the president.”

The Democratic leadership in Congress and in the cities where all of this havoc is happening all deserve every harsh criticism that is leveled at them, because it is their desire to capitulate to social justice warriors and political correctness that has led to the destruction we see nightly on the news now.

Individuals like this need to be strongly rebuked and reminded they have a duty to protect their people.

  1. We are way past “rebuke”. These individuals are bordering on treason. They have been bought out, promised or threatened (or both). If the “silent majority” doesn’t step up to the plate and make every effort to return the senate , house and presidency to Trump’s side to complete exposing and bringing to justice some of these bad actors, our republic is forever lost. If this seditious group gets into power, they will enact laws and changes to our constitution that will guarantee that. I am 83, and I have never been so scared for our great country.
    This election MUST NOT be about personalities, demeanor or presidential behavior, it MUST BE about ideology, freedom: of speech, worship, education, patriotism, safety and equal justice.

    • ABSO-DAMN-LUTELY !!!!!!….. I couldn’t have said it any better….This BS has gone on Long-The-Hell enough!!…BUT!…Here’s the the real BUTT-BURNER!!..”WE THE PEOPLE”
      are paying for it….I just turned 61 and I have never seen in my entire life, people…that we put our faith and trust into to taking care of “OUR” government…to help run & manage “THESE UNITED STATES”…Our Home!..behave in a most Unbehaved manner!!
      This isn’t a pissing-match game….but those responsible will be judged for there un-professional behavior…and if treason is the charge…SO BE IT!

  2. Nadler is a total waste. He and his friends are the reason our country is slipping into chaos. Someone has to step up and protect our citizens.

  3. Amen well said,for the future of our country , Christian and conservative need to be a voice of reason and vote in November to re-elect President Trump and Republican Senators and Congressmen.

  4. I was always taught to respect my superiors. Yesterday, AG Barr proved to be highly superior to the idiot Dems throwing barbs at him. Superior in intellect, superior in ethics, superior in wisdom and superior in common sense! What became obvious is that Nadler is a member of Antifa, Cohen is a devout communist, Cicelline thinks he’s head of the Providence Mafia, Jayapal was obviously disregarded as a child and now tries to prove she is an adult, Demings, Raskin and Jeffries don’t know what racism is and Swalwell is nothing but a complete clown.

  5. I believe in Barr and what he is trying to do. I have nothing against protests but this has gone FAR beyond peaceful protests. If this isn’t stopped now our country will go to the communists little by little. So, so tired of democrats protecting the rioters and police being painted as the bad guys! Hardly anything has been mentioned about all the abuse and deaths of these brave police in the so called news.

  6. The performance by the democratic members of Congress on Tuesday was a disgrace. Their objective was to insult AG Barr and try to paint a negative picture of Pres. Trump and actions being taken to bring order and civility to the cities now under attack by the rioters. They are NOT peaceful demonstrators. I commend AG Barr on his demonstration of self-control, and condemn those dems asking questions, not giving AG Barr a chance to respond. Those dems started out by condemning AG Barr’s and President Trump’s performance. There was no intention whatsoever to do any good or inform the American people. Yesterday, the dems were horrible!

  7. Barr is absolutely 100% correct. How can anyone reasonably argue with what he says in his testimony. The most frightening part of the leftist movement is the inability to properly educate millennials and younger the devastating effects of a socialist oriented government. I find it incredibly said how poorly our educators are illustrating this lesson to their studeents.

  8. We are losing this country to people who think they can ruin cities and monuments and people, the DemRats that will let them continue this behavior so the President won’t be elected! Don’t get me started on Pelosi! She is a even worse!

  9. True enough,A G Barr is a patriot .He did a outstanding job standing up to the “Democrap” rabble for five hours of slander against his office and Pres. Trump.How long will the US. tolerate Schumer,Pelosi,Nadler,Soro’s,and the other Socialists intent on destroying the nation ! Biden is a complete mental case ,Pelosi isn’t far behind. CNN, MSNBC,CBS ,etc,is their voice.Its long over due for all patriot’s to stand togather against the communist’s disguised as “Democraps”with What ever means required to do so !

  10. Nader stated, when questioned, that Portland is a Myth. Why is he allowed to continue in his office when he has looked away from the violent attacks on officers and calls it a Myth?

  11. I grew up as a JFK Democrat and since then the party has moved more and more against basic principles of regular working people who they claim they are for. Now they are a collection of misfits characterizing everyone else as racists or xxxxphobic to deter or deflect real discussion of problems and solutions. The absolute diatribe from this group during the AG hearings were worse than a joke. When ‘kids-children’ act like this in the old days they were punished like a dunce standing in the corner. Now they have all the answers but unfortunately for our country they don’t even know a fraction of the questions. I as a Bronze Star recipient Vietnam veteran hope we return to law and order principles and bring our country back to sanity from the jackass insanity.

  12. A line has been drawn in the sand. The people living by the laws set forth by our Constitution are on one side of the line and the sick Treasonous, Socialist, Marxist’s are on the other side. They are being controlled by the Elites of our world who scurry around and control our lives. To protect our country our Constitution and our children’s future we will have to organize and rise up to take our country back. Everything we are experiencing has occurred in history. A good example is present day Venezuela. What you are seeing there will soon be here if we fail to take back and hold dear our freedoms guaranteed and purchased by the blood of our forefathers. The Radicals have tied the hands of our Heroic Police officers. Our Police are our first line of defense. We have to demand our Police to be free to protect us from the unjust people who choose to destroy and kill our citizens. Look at our Representatives and our President. Our Senate for the most part are trying to help us and our President maintain a Constitution based system and protect our rights as American Citizens. We need to give them all the support as we can and let them know we are watching and noting who are the Constitution Warriors and who are the Treasonous, Socialist, Marxist. God Bless our Republic. God Bless America.

  13. The only peaceful, legal thing we can do is to vote these democrats out of office. They absolutely need to go. There’s no doubt about that. They act like spoiled rotten, mean and nasty children who will not listen to reason no matter what. If people don’t put them out our country will totally be destroyed. They are using people to ruin our country from the inside. They don’t need anyone else to destroy this country, they are doing it themselves.

  14. Nadler is an escapee from “THE WIZARD OF OZ” . . . obviously a “MUNCHKIN”, he definitely has the “small man” affliction where his ego is eAsily bruised when his size is in question and he has plenty of back up he becomes a tyrant !

  15. Now since Barr said just the opposite of what the people who actually investigate and are embedded in the protests say about the protesters, and if you think anything that has gone on this long does not have undercover law enforcement in the crowd you live in a dream world. Now the only persons who have been charged according to police reports are a Far Right Group members belonging to the BOOGALOO BOYS who have been arrested for Murder, attempted murder and inter state transportation of Firearms and explosives with intent to start a riot and a Civil Race war.
    Barr looked like the fool he is in the hearing, very forgetful about anything that would put him on the spot, here is a person who runs the DOJ which is suppose to work for the entire population of the USA but instead he works for Trump in every aspect of how he rules and decisions he makes, now the House knows that Barr can not be impeached, but they also know once he is out of office he can be tried in a Federal Court for anything that can be proven he did while in office, like lying to Congress which he openly did yesterday on no less than 3 proven times, and ther might be more times which i am unaware of, now no one is above a proven law in this USA as much as trump tries to prove they are.

    • Robert, I’m sorry but where is your evidence? I spoke this week with my friends who live in Portland, work about 4 miles from fed courthouse and where I have been for many projects. The peaceful protest run until around 10-midnight then mom shields go home to families and the more violence portion starts with baiting and attacking and starting fires. Also that the full truth isn’t being reported by either side.

      Portland is a protestors dream, I can count on one hand how many times I’ve been there that there wasn’t a protest for something going on. They are mostly peaceful but can get rowdy late in the night. Like the time someone set off one of those commercial fireworks aimed at the hotel I was staying in. It went off outside my 20th flr room close enough to shake the window and room. So when I see pictures of a federal building I’ve driven past covered in graffiti with pyrotechnic devices going off and fires at its doors I can tell these were from riots in Portland not a peaceful protest or fake video from some other location. Stay away from federal property and the feds leave you alone.
      As for your perceived poor performance of Barr, that was a sham hearing. They had no intention of letting him fully answer any question. And I am sure if you were ever put on the spot and only asked loaded questions designed to twist anything you say you would be perfect and remember and defend your response far better than Barr did.
      That said nothing I said here will make any difference to you as you will not believe my words or experiences. Your mind is already closed without doing any investigation yourself. You only see and hear what you expect and block out anything that doesn’t fit within your perception of reality.

  16. What is missing. Any feelings for the people and business. They talk about Barr as if it is his feelings only his feelings “but gravely injurious to our inner city communities,” he contended. He contended? No one else is concerned about what is happening just his contention. The news doesn’t care about the damage to anything? People are charged for defending their property? They according to a judge should be standing in front of a charred pile of rubble. Rather than defend their home which they were entitled to defend and is now taken away from them by a judge making them hire lawyers to defend their guaranteed right.

  17. I agree with all the above comments. It is unbelievable what Pelosi, Schumer, Nadler, Schiff and all these worthless Democrats are doing to our country. They absolutely HAVE to be voted out. They do not love our country. They just want the power and money. I believe without a doubt we should have term limits to all those in Congress. All these Democratic leaders in these cities who are not protecting the citizens should be thrown out immediately. They certainly are Communist Marxist Socialist rejects. Any of these people who are not happy with our wonderful freedoms in this country should go live in Venezuela, China, Russia or Cuba. They would be quite happy there it seems!!!!! And yes, I was very proud of our AG Bill Barr at the hearings. He certainly made us proud!

  18. Nadler That little gremlin idiot. He called Antifa a myth really when they have already been busted as a group of anarchists. He needs to pull his head out of his ass and look around. He thinks he is god and he has small mans complex. Lmao.

  19. Note from Portland, Oregon. Our downtown is in ruins. This is the result of pure evil and the good people just watching on tv from their comfortable chairs instead of doing something about it, like voting liberals out of office. Our once beautiful city has been going this direction for a long time. Just who is feeding, clothing, providing housing for these destroyers? My tax money?

  20. I would like to see the United States take the lead in not accepting the lefts ridiculous phrase….”New Normal” It is NOT a new normal…..Please call it what it really is…..

    “The NEW ABNORMAL”. (Let’s get this narrative spread abroad)

    I think Police should absolutely not protect or defend their Mayor’s, or Governor’s who do not support their cities and, by the way, who are being paid a salary by the very people they are supposed to protect. It’s time to be strong and stand up for what is right.
    Thank you Mr. Barr, for all you do and what you stand for.

  21. P.S. I am 74 years old, bore 7 children, including a set of twins and have 31 grandchildren. I worked long and hard to raise smart, educated, confident and productive children, who love and respect our Country and the LAW, and who are contributing in a positive way to Society. To have their Freedom taken away, is more than I can stand.

    To have the Freedom’s we have, protected by the Constitution, is a blessing, and is not to be taken lightly. To witness, night after night, our Freedom’s eroded and laws ignored, attacked by Power Hungry, Idiots is an atrocity.

    I think all the people causing chaos should be shipped to 3rd world countries and learn first hand, why so many want to come to America. I look forward to seeing the “Guilty”…..and we know who they are, receive the punishment, required by law, that they have earned.
    Please give us, the citizens of the United States, the peace of mind that Justice will prevail and be administered.
