AG William Barr has set his sights on both extremes of the political spectrum at once, targeting the “forces of anarchy, destruction and coercion.” He’s had enough of both Antifa and Boogaloo.
The AG has had enough
Attorney General William Barr has had enough of “anti-government extremists” on both sides of the political spectrum because ordinary American citizens who expect law and order are caught in the crossfire. The media not only makes things worse, they focus their attention on the far right-wing racists while portraying Antifa anarchists as little angels.
According to AG Barr, professional anti-government agitators have infiltrated what are supposed to be “peaceful demonstrations against police brutality and systemic racism” to hijack the mob and whip them into a frenzy of “acts of violence designed to undermine public order.” Along with “other lawless conduct,” Soros funded extremists “have violently attacked police officers and other government officials, destroyed public and private property, and threatened innocent people.”
It isn’t just Antifa. “Although these extremists profess a variety of ideologies,” the Attorney General insists, “they are united in their opposition to the core constitutional values of a democratic society governed by law.” On the left, the children of darkness “pretend to profess a message of freedom and progress, but they are in fact forces of anarchy, destruction and coercion.” Over on the right side of the fence, members of the right-wing “Boogaloo” movement “became unreasonable” and one member used the blood of an ambushed officer to paint the slogan across the hood of his patrol car. That was after him and a partner gunned down a federal security officer in a drive-by.
A targeted task force
AG Barr announced that the Justice Department will be actually pursuing criminals for a change instead of looking for collusion between President Donald Trump and the Russians. He created a special task force “dedicated to combating anti-government extremists.”
The men in charge will be Craig Carpenito who serves as U.S. attorney for New Jersey, joined by the U.S. attorney for the Northern District of Texas, Erin Nealy Cox. It will include representatives from the FBI and other prosecutors’ offices.
The mission of the unit is to infiltrate the groups “to develop information about extremist individuals, networks, and movements.” Then they can share the data with local law enforcement. “The ultimate goal of the task force will be not only to enable prosecutions of extremists who engage in violence, but to understand these groups well enough that we can stop such violence before it occurs and ultimately eliminate it as a threat to public safety and the rule of law.”
