Why hasn’t William Barr rounded up the people who orchestrated violence?
He has a good reason why.
William Barr exposed the one reason that Antifa members are still on the street.
Antifa calls itself “antifascist,” but the violent organization considers pretty much everyone they dislike to be Nazis.
Conservative commentator Steven Crowder had one of his employees join Antifa for an undercover video in 2017.
The results were so damning that Crowder had to go to the police after the undercover journalist was handed a weapon to cause trouble and for the violent tactics they were planning at an event where Daily Wire Editor-in-Chief Ben Shapiro was speaking.
According to the Gateway Pundit, Antifa is looking for “folks with firearms” to defend the six square blocks in Seattle that they have built barricades around.
Medium reported Antifa has 30 demands for the City of Seattle before they give back the land.
“The Seattle Police Department and attached court system are beyond reform. We do not request reform, we demand abolition. We demand that the Seattle Council and the Mayor defund and abolish the Seattle Police Department and the attached Criminal Justice Apparatus. This means 100% of funding, including existing pensions for Seattle Police. At an equal level of priority we also demand that the city disallow the operations of ICE in the city of Seattle,” the first demand reads.
They’re also demanding that Seattle is de-gentrified, arts and culture be reestablished, free college, homeless people be disturbed, decentralized election process, that anti-bias training become a legal requirement for all jobs in the education system, and all Confederate monuments be removed (there’s one private memorial for Confederate veterans at a Seattle cemetery).
It seems like there’s no reason for these miscreants to not be thrown in jail at once.
However, William Barr explained the reason Antifa members have not been charged yet.
“We have some investigations underway and very focused investigations on certain individuals that relate to ANTIFA,” Barr said to Fox News anchor Bret Baier. “But in the in the initial phase of identifying people and arresting them, they were arrested for crimes that don’t require us to identify a particular group or don’t necessitate that.”
“Does Antifa have leaders?” Baier asked.
“It’s a very loosely organized group,” Barr responded. “And they have a sort of unique or unusual system of communication and organization. There are people who can be characterized as leaders in any given situation.”
Baier then asked Barr if he was going to go after the people funding Antifa.
“There appear to be sources of funding and we are looking into the sources of funding,” Barr responded. “And, you know, there is clearly some high degree of organization involved at some of these events and coordinated tactics that we’re seeing. And we’re looking into that as well. And some of it relates to Antifa. Some of it relates to groups that act very much like Antifa. As I said, there’s a witch’s brew of extremist groups that are trying to exploit this situation on all sides.”
