U.S. Attorney General Barr says the left wants to tear down system

Source: Reuters

U.S. Attorney General William Barr mounted a partisan attack on the Democratic Party in an interview that aired Sunday, claiming the left believes in “tearing down the system” and pursues absolute victory as “a substitute for religion.”

Barr also told a Fox News TV host he was worried that an increase in mail-in voting could lead to a contested presidential election in November, sounding in on an issue often raised by U.S. President Donald Trump.

In an interview with conservative pundit Mark Levin, Barr said Democrats had pulled away from classic liberal values and now were akin to the “Rousseauian Revolutionary Party” aimed at destroying the institutions upon which the country was built.

“They’re not interested in compromise, they’re not interested in dialectic exchange of views. They’re interested in total victory,” Barr said of the left. “It’s a secular religion. It’s a substitute for a religion.”

Nobody wants to polish the 💩 that Trump leaves when he leaves. Citizens want the White House cleansed, sanitized, and fumigated. That’s some disease-ridden squatters working there now, remove all traces of their damage to democracy.

17. This seems to be their strategy - tear down the major institutions, lie, cheat, rig the election

all the while they're clanging the bell saying Dems are doing it to change the narrative and steer the public's focus away from their crimes. Same thing they're doing in 2016 - they committed treasonous acts to steal the election, and continuing to do till now.

They are doing a fine job of tearing it down as we speak and they have been extremely successful. A wrecking crew meets a swarm of locusts and BAM!

That's the Nazi tactic again, (and again, and again). ALWAYS blame, with a straight face, your opponent for what you are actually doing.

While they do often project, this is strategy and intentional and using the playbook written long ago.

10. Yep, we would like to tear down a system

where the AG is a political voice for a corrupt presidency. We would like to tear down a system where agency and department heads are chosen based solely upon their personal loyalty to the President. We would like to return lawmaking to the Congress and get rid of rule by royal decree. We would like to tear down a system that supports foreign intervention in our elections. To Republicans "compromise" means "our way or the highway."

The Republicans have been experimenting with a banana republic form of government, I would like to see it torn down, and burned to ash. In the past, I never liked Republicans, but in the last three years I have learned to hate the Party and it's supporters.

I can see that the Repukes are blaming Democrats of doing what they are, themselves, doing and relishing. I can't imagine any of them are truly Christians, including Pence, and are the ones trying to change our democracy and Constitution. I'm sure they all have their assignments and will willfully carry them out. None of them have the balls to stand up for themselves.

Competition is one thing. What they are playing is totally different and dangerous.

entire constitutional process that is the US, known very well for its stand on freedom of religion, which obviously barr opposes, since he describes the democratic party as being 'anti-religious' and such other nonsense.

I went out there to read about Opus Dei. Yikes!

26. So says the one who is allowing the PINO to break the law w/ impunity right and left, and brings his

taint of religious bigotry to the forefront obviously when you hear barr keep bringing up religious this/religious that, in his constant nonsense that he spews up on an ongoing basis.

Ironic that barr is accusing others (other American citizens by the way) of refusing to compromise when barr's sdie won't even talk to the other side (barr and rump will have their own private meetings at the WH without democratic party members (weren't invited of course, as usual)), and besides, the other side (barr and rump's side) refuses to even budge an inch on their issue. It's my way or the highway. Look at Mark Meadows leaving the negotiations recently, another failure of his and rump and simply points out how these idiots react (by having a temper tantrum and stomping out of the room).

rump of course, immediately reacted w/ several illegal EOs since he can't get anything done.

The bitterness in my mouth to even think that that republicans are even trying to govern this country jointly (as might happen when one side has control of the purse string and the other side doesn't) is getting deeper and more distasteful.

Remember, these people would rather thrust an elbow in your face than sit down at the same table w/ you, and dictate terms to you instead of listening to reasonable counter-proposals.

Never. Barr needs to be sanctioned by Congress for unethical behavior. He deserves impeachment hearings, but that would play into Trump's hands at this stage.
