“Unfortunately, with the rioting that is occurring in many of our cities around the country, the voices of peaceful protest are being hijacked by violent radical elements. Groups of outside radicals and agitators are exploiting the situation to pursue their own separate and violent agenda. In many places, it appears the violence is planned, organized, and driven by anarchistic and far left extremists, using Antifa-like tactics, many of whom travel from out of state to promote the violence” – Attorney General William Barr on the 30th May 2020
Today, we were seeing the head of the Department of Justice issuing a statement without facts nor legal justification. His playing a perception, as there are investigations into whose behind the looting, the riots and whatnot. While the anger, the frustrations and public outcry is there against continues police brutality against minorities and the African-American Communities. There are even reports of Police Officers doing the bidding of looting and destruction pinning it on others.
Therefore, when the Attorney General issues this statement. He does it first and foremost to clear the air. To ensure his narrative gets the spin, that his playing the facade that his master wishes. Because, the President is blaming the Left and Antifa for it all. While there is even reports of investigations into White Supremacists and Alt-Right Groups involved in destruction too.
So, until the evidence is there, as erratic as these times are. There are someone who wants to spin the news. There are someone who wants to ensure one party is the enemy. The enemy is the ones whose not on the side of the government. The other side is wrong. Because, this state isn’t saying the violent right is behind it. They are not saying anyone from various of Alt-Right groups, which is associates with race-crimes and killing minorities are involved. This is historically like that with the KKK and other groups.
That’s why its rich that Republican and Trump loving technocrat Barr blames the left and Antifa. Without evidence. That is just a narrative to ensure the public, that in the back of their heads. They are reminded that the Left is the issue, while it was a man of the Right Wing as a Police Officer who sparked the whole thing and who killed George Floyd. However, that part of the reality isn’t touched, because that undermine the reality that the AG wants to posses.
This is the narrow-minded blame-game. If the AG thought this was brilliant. Maybe, he needs to study the history of using “Super-Predators” of the 1990s and such. Since, instead of that, its now Antifa. Only the masking of the name has changed, but the paradigm is the same. Making someone an enemy and target, to legitimize the same behaviour from the authorities. Which in the end spark the same demonstrations, the same riots and the public display of outrage. Because, how many lives can the authorities take without consequence?
That should be the question here and what is the final drop in the glass. That makes it spill over the whole table and make a mess. The mess is here, the President and AG trying to find their enemy. However, they are only showing their vile attempt to create a narrative, which isn’t proven or investigated.
This is the school-boy argument of blaming the older boys for tarnishing and TP-ing the hallways, when in reality it could the young boys. However, there are no clear investigation into it. So, let’s blame the older ones. Shall we? Peace.
