And not even in a forceful manner. It is his usual lawyerly, smarmy, Deep-State-C*cksucking manner that is designed to keep him in the good graces of the people whose entire political philosophy is antithetical to what Barr claims to be…a conservative.
His comments, which come about two years and eleven months too late, are a mealy-mouthed attempt to remain in the good graces of the uninformed on the right, who are distinctly uncomfortable with the insanity of the prosecutions (persecutions?) of the protestors, but don’t really have the facts. So here is Bill Barr to make them feel better about the whole thing.
Former Attorney General Bill Barr said on Saturday—the third anniversary of the Jan. 6, 2021, Capitol incident—that the Justice Department under President Joe Biden went too far when it comes to prosecuting individuals involved in the events of that fateful day and targeted people who merely “walked into open doors and hung around.”
Mr. Barr made the remarks in an interview on Fox News, where he said he has no intention of downplaying the seriousness of the events of Jan. 6, 2021, which he called a “shameful episode” for which some people should face prosecution.
“I don’t think it was an insurrection,” Mr. Barr said, rejecting a label that has been pushed in particular by opponents of former President Donald Trump, who faces over a dozen lawsuits seeking to bar him from the 2024 presidential ballot under the claim that he engaged in an “insurrection.”
A bit of overreach! Nothing to see…move along! Barr is the establishment Republican that everyone on the left just loves! He will never buck the Deep StateTM, and he will never criticize the process. You know, the process that has sold America’s legal system to the highest bidder. Notice that he has no legal remedies in mind…no desire for a political solution to a profound miscarriage of justice…no honorable fight against this existential insult to our Constitution and the principles upon which our country was founded? Yeah…he wants to be on record that he has reservations about it, but he certainly doesn’t want to do anything about it!
And remember, this is the same Bill Barr who found no evidence of voter fraud in the election of 2020. I wonder where he stands on that now? Actually…I don’t. I know exactly where he stands, and that is on the side with the most money and influence in Washington. He is an acolyte of the process, that disgusting refuge into which all power-hungry government apparatchiks scurry to defend their destruction of the rule of law and the United States Constitution. In his squalid little mind, 18 U.S. Code § 1512 is more important than the First Amendment of the United States Constitution.
He has no honor, and his only loyalty is to power. He is the tyrant that Jefferson warned us about.
And what country can preserve it’s liberties if their rulers are not warned from time to time that their people preserve the spirit of resistance? Let them take arms. The remedy is to set them right as to facts, pardon and pacify them. What signify a few lives lost in a century or two? The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants.
