Video of the Day: AG Barr States Concern Over Democrat Refusal to Condemn Mob Violence

During an alleged “hearing” in the House Judiciary Committee, Attorney General Bill Barr expressed concern that members of the Democrat Party refuse to condemn mob violence in cities like Portland.

“What makes me concerned for the country is this is the first time in my memory the leaders of one of our great two political parties, the Democratic Party, are not coming out and condemning mob violence and the attack on federal courts,” he said.

“Why can’t we just say violence against federal courts has to stop,” he asked rhetorically. “Can we hear something like that?”

The Washington Times noted:

The nearly six-hour hearing grew more heated as it wore on. Democrats talked over Mr. Barr and often interrupted his attempts to answer their questions.

“This is a hearing,” Mr. Barr quipped. “I thought I was the one who was supposed to be heard?”

The committee’s top Republican, Rep. Jim Jordan of Ohio, demanded Democratic lawmakers let the attorney general respond.

“For months you’ve tried to get the attorney general to come,” Mr. Jordan told Mr. Nadler. “He’s here. Why don’t you let him speak? Why don’t you let him answer the questions?”

The answer to that is simple — Democrats really had no intention of hearing anything Barr had to say.  All they wanted was political kabuki theater, and that’s what they got.

Here’s a video of his comment:

But he is right about one thing — it’s very interesting that Democrats refuse to condemn mob violence.  It’s enough to make one think they really do want a second, bloody civil war in America.
