Here is all you need to know about America’s chief law enforcement officer. Attorney General Bill Barr’s Constitution Day speech to a gathering organized by Hillsdale College provides a interest insight into the man who is enforcing our nation’s law.
Here are list of some of Barr’s weird spontaneous responses to questions according to the blog Lawfare:
- The attorney general came out not merely against mail-in voting but against all multi-day voting, fretting that “We’re losing the whole idea of what an election is;”
- He disparaged American education about World War II, contending that many people reduce the war effort to the internment of Japanese Americans and the bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki;
- He complained about people believing that coronavirus policy decisions should be “dictated by science,” arguing that science doesn’t answer the key trade-off questions;
- He criticized the press as not merely partisan but as “more ignorant” than it used to be, saying he would be “more tolerant of [the bias] if they were more informed people. But they’re not;”
- And he denounced “these so-called Black Lives matter people,” who—he declared—are “not interested in black lives. They’re interested in [using] props—a small number of blacks who are killed by police . . . to achieve a much broader political agenda.”
