Democrats invited AG Barr to testify before the House Judiciary Committee. If Barr knew how they were going to treat him, he might have stayed home.
Instead of letting him answer questions, they threw accusations at him—cutting him off before he could respond.
But Barr had enough of their treatment and created a moment that might be replayed for decades:
Asked whether he “disavowed” the violence in Portland, Nadler responded that, “That’s a myth that’s being spread only in Washington, D.C.”
“What unfolds nightly around the courthouse cannot reasonably be caused protest, it is by any objective measure an assault on the government of the United States,” Barr fired back. “Since when is it OK to burn down a federal courthouse?”
Apparently, Democrat Jerry Nadler is not paying attention to what’s going on across the country.
He called stories of riots a “myth” that only exists in Washington. I guess all the homes, businesses, and lives destroyed rioters are just a myth, too.
Countless Americans watch as their neighborhoods are destroyed by radical activists. The media pretends it’s not happening.
And Nadler refused to watch the footage that proved that liberal cities are out of control.
Across the country, “peaceful” protesters have crossed the line, endangering lives and destroying property.
In Portland, rioting has been going on for nearly two months. Anarchists have been assaulting the federal courthouse.
Barr blasted Democrats for sticking their heads in the sand. Does Nadler not really know what is going on? Does he just believe what he watches on CNN?
Either he is pushing a narrative too flimsy to believe or is neglecting his duty as a congressman to stay abreast of what’s happening around the country.
Both options are bad for Nadler. He and his liberal cohorts made a big show by lecturing Barr and trying to accuse him of various misdeeds.
Yet they are unwilling or unable to address the danger many Americans are facing on a daily basis.
Rumors are spreading that even Democratic voters are getting fed up. Why should they keep voting for Democrat candidates, when they sit back and let this happen?
- House Democrats deny the stories of riots across U.S. cities.
- AG Barr criticized them, asking when has it been “okay” to burn a courthouse.
- Americans across the country are getting fed up with the left’s response to the riots.
