OPINION by at M. SIDNEY MEDIA| The United States Attorney General, William Barr has just announced there are over 500 instances being investigated following the recent events across the nation.
You can bet that violent leftists, such as Antifa, are involved as the subjects of some of these investigations. Let’s hope law and order is restored to this great nation, ASAP.
“The federal government is best positioned to address this kind of violence and lawlessness after it occurs because we don’t have FBI agents walking the beat.
And in fact, 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.
It involves all state and local in those jurisdictions and all the federal agencies. And it’s the system we designed to follow terrorists. And now they are starting to go full bore, cranking out investigations, indictments against the people who are involved in this violence.”
“We are seeing strong evidence of coordination in many of these violent episodes. Fundamentally, what you have here is you have demonstrators, some of them go there with the intent of demonstrating, but you have a group of provocateurs and agitators, sometimes a significant group, that try to convert those into violent activity. And they seem to be very well coordinated when they show up.”
“A number of them are associated with the movement called Antifa, but they go by various names, but frequently anarchistic. 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. 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.”
We can not allow our nation fall into violent anarchy, the President must walk the tightrope of allowing peaceful protests, but cracking down on violence as soon as it begins, before it gets out of hand.
