The US is being faced with a brand new form of “urban guerrilla warfare” pushed by the left’s “lust for power,” Attorney General William Barr told Mark Levin, the host of Fox News’ “Life, Liberty & Levin” on Sunday.
While talking about the continuing Black Lives Matter (BLM) riots savaging through several US cities, Barr said that the organization, which the media has characterized as a fed-up activist group to make it seem like they are justified in rioting, is comprised of “Bolsheviks” with a focus on on “some form of socialism, communism.”
“They are a revolutionary group that is interested in some form of socialism, communism. They’re essentially Bolsheviks. Their tactics are fascistic,” he said.
Barr compared the riots going on across the country in blue cities that are organized by ANTIFA to “a new form of urban guerrilla warfare.”
“The way the guerrilla…hides out among the people as a fish in the ocean…what they do is they are essentially shielding themselves or shrouding themselves in First Amendment activity,” he explained. “They go into the demonstrations, which are exercising First Amendment activity, and they insinuate themselves in there to shield themselves. That’s where they swim. And what they do is they hijack these demonstrations and they and they provoke violence.”
BLM’s radical sentiments are a result of the Democratic Party’s radical far-left shift in recent times, Barr said. The left has “pulled away from the umbrella of classical liberal values that have undergirded” America and made a “secular religion” out of seeking “complete political victory,” he argued.
It started the day Trump won the 2016 election, “and from that point forward, there’s been the resistance,” Barr told Levin. “They were trying to impeach him from Day One. They have done everything they can..and I think it’s because of the desire for power that the left wants.”
Power has become a “secular religion of the left,” Barr argued. “They want to run people’s lives so they can design utopia for all of us…and it’s the lust for power. And they weren’t expecting Trump’s victory. And it outrages them.”
Pretty much, the Left was on the precipice of fundamentally transforming our country into a socialist utopian heave on earth after the efforts of the lawless President Barack Obama. They thought after Obama softened up America to socialist ideals that Hillary would step in and use the iron fist of government to force compliance from every American. But then Trump came along and dismantled much of what progressive Marxists built over the last 30 years.
Barr later condemned the media for “projecting a narrative” and promoting a “lie” to the American people in their watered-down coverage of the civil unrest.
“You don’t see it on the networks. You don’t see it on the other cable stations. And yet you hear about these peaceful demonstrators. So it’s you know, it’s just it’s a lie. The American people are being told a lie by the media,” Barr stated.
The media has become “extremely monolithic,” he concluded, “and it’s wedded in many ways to the Democratic Party.”
