William Barr issued one warning that stopped Washington, D.C. in its tracks
Attorney General William Barr quickly became one of the most hated men in the Washington, D.C. Swamp.
Democrats sit in nervous anticipation every time Barr goes on the attack for fear of the Attorney General going after one of their sacred cows.
And now William Barr issued one warning that stopped Washington, D.C. in its tracks.
Hating police became a defining characteristic on the left.
The anti-police Black Lives Matter movement – egged on by support from top Democrats like Barack Obama – fueled a false narrative in the Fake News Media that police were racist killers out hunting black men for sport.
But William Barr warned this would have disastrous consequences for the very communities that needed police the most as law enforcement would become less likely to engage out of fear of inciting community unrest.
The Washington Post reports:
Speaking to a roomful of police officers and prosecutors on Tuesday, Attorney General William P. Barr drew a parallel between protests against soldiers during the Vietnam War and demonstrations against law enforcement today.
But this time, he suggested, those who don’t show “respect” to authority could lose access to police services.
“Today, the American people have to focus on something else, which is the sacrifice and the service that is given by our law enforcement officers. And they have to start showing, more than they do, the respect and support that law enforcement deserves,” Barr said in pointed remarks delivered at a Justice Department ceremony to honor police officers.
Barr added that “if communities don’t give that support and respect, they might find themselves without the police protection they need.”
Democrats and the Fake News Media immediately denounced Barr’s words as a threat against black Americans.
But it was a simple truth.
A 2017 poll found 72 percent of officers were less likely to use force or stop and question suspects out of fear of becoming the next target of mass protests and being demonized in the fake news media.
This was dubbed the “Ferguson effect” after Black Lives Matter and the fake news media spread the lie that officer Darren Wilson killed Michael Brown in cold blood after Brown made a “hands up, don’t shoot motion.”
These lies affect police officers ability to do their job and all the Attorney General was doing was offering a rebuke of a radical anti-police culture on the left and in the Fake News Media that is harming the very people liberals claim they are looking out for.
