US facing 'urban guerrilla warfare' driven by left's 'lust for power'

AG Barr: US facing new form of 'urban guerrilla warfare' driven by left's 'lust for power' AG tells 'Life, Liberty & Levin' that the left views opposition as 'evil because we stand in the way of their progressive utopia'


The United States is grappling with a new form of "urban guerrilla warfare" driven by the left's "lust for power," Attorney General William Barr told "Life, Liberty & Levin" on Sunday.


Discussing the ongoing Black Lives Matter riots rippling through several U.S. cities, Barr told host Mark Levin that the organization --  which has been characterized by the media as a fed-up activist group --  is comprised of "Bolsheviks" with a focus on on "some form of socialism, communism."

"They are a revolutionary group that is interested in some form of socialism, communism. They're essentially Bolsheviks. Their tactics are fascistic," he said.




Barr compared the nationwide riots organized by Antifa to "a new form of urban guerrilla warfare."


"The way the guerrilla...hides out among the people as a fish in the ocean...what they do is they are essentially shielding themselves or shrouding themselves in First Amendment activity," he explained. "They go into the demonstrations, which are exercising First Amendment activity, and they insinuate themselves in there to shield themselves. That's where they swim. And what they do is they hijack these demonstrations and they and they provoke violence."


The group's radical leanings are reflective of the Democratic party's far-left shift in recent years, Barr said. "The left has "pulled away from the umbrella of classical liberal values that have undergirded" America and made a "secular religion" out of seeking "complete political victory," he argued.




It began the day Trump won in 2016, "and from that point forward, there's been the resistance," Barr told Levin.  "They were trying to impeach him from Day One. They have done everything they can..and I think it's because of the desire for power that the left wants."

Power has become a "secular religion of the left,"  Barr asserted. "They want to run people's lives so they can design utopia for all of us...and it's the lust for power. And they weren't expecting Trump's victory. And it outrages them."


Barr later condemned the media for "projecting a narrative" and selling a "lie" to the American people in their watered-down coverage of the civil unrest.


"You don't see it on the networks. You don't see it on the other cable stations. And yet you hear about these peaceful demonstrators. So it's you know, it's just it's a lie. The American people are being told a lie by the media," Barr said.


The media has become "extremely monolithic," he concluded, "and it's wedded in many ways to the Democratic Party."

In an effort to divert attention from tRump's PROMISE to DESTROY Social Security AND Medicare,  Barr is becoming an even bigger liar than his boss.


The GOPerLords need their dupes to think the danger is from people protesting in favor of equal justice under the law, and NOT the Republican Party that is determined to END Medicare and Social Security.


But the Truth remains on Video Tape no less - just google "Trump vows to end payroll tax" and watch and listen to Toad claiming not paying the payroll tax boosted the economy and PROMISING he will END the payroll tax if re-elected.


For those who watch Fox, the payroll tax is the money we contribute to Social Security and Medicare. If those payments cease, all benefits will need to be paid from the Trust Funds.


Here's what that means to Seniors:


Medicare pays $630Billion/year or $52.5B/month.

The Medicare Trust Funds totaled $195Billion at the end of 2019

Without any revenue from the payroll tax, Medicare payments will CEASE in 4 MONTHS


The SS pays $1,059Billion/year or $88.3B/month

The SS Trust Funds total $2,897Billion at the end of 2019

Without revenue from FICA, SS payments will CEASE in 33 MONTHS!


So Trump supporters, you really okay with having no Medicare after May 2021 and no Social Security of any kind after August 2023?  Do you REALLY think the criminals using the protests to divert police from their looting can possibly do more damage than putting around 40% of Seniors into poverty without any ability to pay for their health care?

I agree the US is facing urban guerrilla warfare.  Trump has mishandled the pandemic and that is driving us into a depression.  Trump has mishandled the negotiations in Congress and that is going to put millions of American out of their homes.  It will also cut their incomes by $600/week.  Trump has made a big show with lots of promises that he "alone" will fix the damage he has done but his message is big and his delivery is small. It took less than a weekend for that to be reported nation wide. 


Yes, I fear this will be the death of the American system of Capitalism and it will end through violence.

Of course it is, Trump has no record to run on so he's sticking with scaring the bejeezus out of the Nervous Nellies that make up his base. I wonder what they're going to do when these "urban guerillas" don't materialize?
