AG Bill Barr, speaking to Mark Levin says that the left is promoting violence in order to seize power. He calls it a new form of urban guerrilla warfare perpetrated by people who want some form of socialism or communism by using fascistic methods. He called them Bolsheviks.
“They are a revolutionary group that is interested in some form of socialism, communism. They’re essentially Bolsheviks. Their tactics are fascistic.”
“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. 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.”
Barr explained that the radical leanings of the rioters reflect the Democratic party's huge shift to the left. He said it started when Donald Trump was elected president and the Democrats set about removing him from office on day one. He was too much of a threat to their ultimate goals. They have been forced to use the election system to regain the power they lost.
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.”
Barr later condemned the media for “projecting a narrative” and selling a “lie” to the American people in their watered-down coverage of the civil unrest.
“You don’t see it on the networks. You don’t see it on the other cable stations. And yet you hear about these peaceful demonstrators. So it’s you know, it’s just it’s a lie. The American people are being told a lie by the media,” Barr said.
