Black Lives Matter protests have evolved into riots and full-scale violence in American streets.
Democrats are embracing the chaos, thinking it will drive them to victory in November.
But William Barr just dropped a truth bomb on Black Lives Matter with these four words
In a recent interview with Fox News’ Sean Hannity, Attorney General William Barr took Black Lives Matter radicals and their Democrat pals head-on.
Barr tore into Democrat politicians for embracing the “defund the police” mantra of the same rioters in the streets who graffiti towns with “ACAB” (All Cops Are Bastards) and “1312” (the numerical rendering) and trying to turn it into actual policy.
Citing the rise in murders in cities nationwide, Barr ripped Democrat Mayors and Governors who attack police and stir up acts of violence against them by calling them racist.
“Well, lives are being lost in violent crime and the demonization of the police,” Barr began.
With those four words, “lives are being lost,” the Attorney General hit the nail on its head.
The Attorney General noted that it was poor minorities who would be most harmed by defunding the police.
Barr highlighted the cruel irony of wealthy white liberals who claimed they loudly supported the idea of “Black Lives Matter” who are fully capable of fleeing crime ridden cities should the police pull back, leaving those communities in even worse condition.
“These communities are not going to have the safety. Now, a lot of the liberals will buy themselves out of that. They’ll go to resort towns and so forth, and they’ll escape the consequences of it. But the people in the inner cities won’t. Their lives will be destroyed. Their opportunity will be — they won’t have the opportunity they otherwise would have. Their schools will be overrun by gangs. That’s not caring about black lives,” Barr added.
There’s no denying polls overwhelmingly show Americans are opposed to defunding the police.
But Democrats think embracing it will hurt local law enforcement, one of the few institutions in America Democrats don’t control and where the rank and file vote Republican.
Time will tell if their risky gamble pays off for them politically. In the meantime, poor minorities are suffering the real results of their efforts.
