I don’t like this guy.
I think we got started off on the wrong foot.
It has been a century since the Tulsa Race Riot of 1921 and a quarter of a century since the Oklahoma City Bombing. This guy has been going even further back and invoking the Reconstruction era. Yesterday, he gave a big speech in Oklahoma City about the threat of “domestic violent extremism.”
“Attorney General Merrick B. Garland said on Monday that the Justice Department was pouring resources into its effort to stop domestic violent extremists and that those who attacked the United States would be brought to justice, in a speech commemorating the 26th anniversary of the Oklahoma City bombing.
As a young Justice Department official, Mr. Garland led the investigation into the 1995 attack on the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building, the worst domestic terror attack in American history. Timothy J. McVeigh, an Army veteran who hoped to use violence to spark an anti-government revolution, was ultimately convicted of using a massive truck bomb to destroy the federal building and kill 168 people, including 19 children. …”
Did he bring up the ongoing Antifa insurrection in the Pacific Northwest?
Did he bring up the violent Antifa and Black Lives Matter riots in Minneapolis?
Did he bring up the black extremist who attacked and killed a Capitol Police officer?
No, he didn’t have anything to say about what has actually been going on under his watch as Attorney General. He’s not interested in any of that. Instead, he rambled on about the Oklahoma City Bombing and gave off the vibe that he is itching to menace our civil liberties and create a police state. The guy who Joe Biden has nominated to run the ATF took selfies in front of dead bodies in the ruins of Waco. It seems like there is a greater chance of another Waco or Ruby Ridge than another Oklahoma City.
What do you call a situation when leftwing political violence has become endemic to cities like Portland, Seattle or Minneapolis and the federal government turns a blind eye to it because it is politically incorrect to notice that these people are breaking the law and committing crimes? Why are the brats not punished for laying siege to a federal courthouse? Wouldn’t that be a big story if it was the Proud Boys doing that? How do you get away with opening fire on police stations and the National Guard?
