Antifa anarchists joined forces with Marxist Black Lives Matter agitators to seize America’s city streets – toppling statues, vandalizing monuments, burning and looting private businesses.
Americans are clamoring for a return of law and order.
And William Barr showed he’s done with the Black Lives Matter riots by revealing his plan to stop them.
Attorney General William Barr told Texas Senator Ted Cruz in a podcast interview that the federal government planned to arrest and charge rioters who tore down statues and looted private businesses.
“When the real violence started around May 25, 26, and so forth, we started using our joint terrorist task forces around the country. And there are 35 of them around the country,” Barr began.
Barr told Cruz that there were about 500 criminal investigations ongoing into arson and destruction of federal property.
“And now they are starting to go full bore, cranking out investigations, indictments against the people who are involved in this violence. So we’ve had scores of indictments already for such things as arson, destruction of federal property, things like that. And we have, right now, about 500 investigations underway,” Barr continued.
Barr explained that the people out in streets now are no longer protesters, but anarchists and domestic terrorists.
“They want to tear down the country. They are different than many traditional groups, and frequently, the signs of coordination and activity are very close to the event itself,” the attorney general said. “So like the morning of or the day before, and things are very fast-moving. But we definitely see signs out on the street of communication, of organization, of preplanning, prepositioning of things. So it’s definitely organized activity,” Barr concluded.
While radical leftists are calling for a revolution, most Americans are yearning for an end to civil strife.
President Trump has an opportunity to prove he can restore law and order by arresting the rioters who are looting and vandalizing statues across the country.
