Attorney General William Barr has had enough with rampant rioting and looting across America.
Democrats have done next to nothing to quell the violence in their cities.
Now AG Barr is calling out three cities for the anti-American thing they’re doing.
Antifa and Black Lives Matter extremists have been allowed to run amok for months in major American cities.
Dozens of lives have been lost and billions in property damage flushed down the drain.
But the Trump administration has had enough.
Attorney General William Barr announced that New York City, Portland, and Seattle would be designated as “anarchistic jurisdictions” for their failure to uphold the law.
Barr said in a statement:
“When state and local leaders impede their own law-enforcement officers and agencies from doing their jobs, it endangers innocent citizens who deserve to be protected, including those who are trying to peacefully assemble and protest…We cannot allow federal tax dollars to be wasted when the safety of the citizenry hangs in the balance. It is my hope that the cities identified by the Department of Justice today will reverse course and become serious about performing the basic function of government and start protecting their own citizens.”
At least two people were murdered and one woman raped at the CHAZ (Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone) where communist terrorists seized six downtown city blocks in Seattle.
Mayor Jenny Durkan laughed off the seizure and described it as a block party, “We could have the ‘Summer of Love,’” Durkan quipped to a reporter.
Durkan also told police commissioner Carmen Best to stand down and allow Antifa thugs to take over a police precinct.
Durkan didn’t shut down the autonomous zone until the leftist mob showed up to her house and Commissioner Best resigned in protest after being forced to take a pay-cut in midst of the turmoil.
Far-left New York Mayor Bill de Blasio, who once said in an interview he would do away property rights if he could, has also allowed his city to fall apart.
All of the gains in public safety made under Rudy Giuliani have been lost.
De Blasio has even taunted former New Yorkers who have since fled the state over spikes in crime and onerous COVID-19 lockdowns.
And Portland, Oregon has become ground zero for violent communist activity. Mayor Ted Wheeler has tried to placate the far left but they still hate his guts, meanwhile his competition in the run-off election has referred to herself as the “Antifa Mayor.”
Making matters worse, Portland has a progressive district attorney who continually puts rioters and looters back on the streets to commit more acts of mayhem.
And one DA – backed by George Soros – even instructed police to alter an inoperable weapon in order to charge homeowners with brandishing a firearm while defending their home against a violent mob.
But AG Barr is shining a light on these out-of-control cities so people can see who’s truly responsible for the endless chaos in their communities.
