This latest news is going to just cause the left to go into a screaming meltdown and call Attorney General Bill Barr “Hitler.”
That’s how you know it’s good and appropriate.
Barr is reportedly now recommending to prosecutors to charge sedition if it is appropriate with violent rioters.
Attorney General William Barr told the nation’s federal prosecutors to be aggressive when charging violent demonstrators with crimes, including potentially prosecuting protesters for plotting to overthrow the U.S. government. [….]
Barr warned that sometimes violent demonstrations across the U.S. could worsen as the November presidential election approaches. He encouraged the prosecutors to seek a number federal charges, including under a rarely used sedition law, even when state charges could apply.
Now this of course makes a lot of sense when in fact you have a group chanting for revolution and saying they want to bring down the government through their actions.
There is no question that Antifa is a movement, Barr said earlier this month according to the WSJ. “They have websites. They are organized…Anyone who has spent a moment at these things and heard their chants and what they’re calling for can see right away that they are, they say they are, revolutionaries, that this is a revolution.”
We reported on their organization and noted that it’s not just Barr but others in the DHS concluding that as well.
It’s self-evident if you’ve been following what’s been happening. But apparently not to Democrats and media on the left trying to spin. Of course the consequence of the spin makes it look again like they’re denying reality to Americans who can see plainly what’s going on.
It wouldn’t apply to everyone, just cases that they could show all the elements of the offense.
“To bring a sedition case, prosecutors would have to prove there was a conspiracy to attack government agents or officials that posed an imminent danger.”https://t.co/EEFfEoHz8d

Biden War Room account? Tsk tsk…
Racism is so deeply entrenched in society that when you protest it, those that benefit from it consider it sedition.
While one candidate doesn't recognize the existence of systemic racism and tries to maintain it, Joe Biden will fight to eliminate it.https://t.co/B6uKpQy53g

Sedition is the bad penny that shows up at some of the worst moments in our history. Barr is going to play every authoritarian card he can to help Trump hang on to power. https://t.co/nW93gqk2h9

Is he admitting the violent rioters are trying to install Biden?
I don’t think liberals get what they look like when they’re appear to defend things like this and the related violence as mere “protesting.”
With added “Death to America” sign.
So good for Barr calling it out for what it is. Follow the money and the organization, that will break it.
