Democrats Now Praise Rioters

They secretly want more chaos and division in this country.

Garland, who is President Joe Biden’s nominee for U.S. Attorney General, was questioned at his confirmation hearing by Sen. Josh Hawley (R-MO):

Sen. Hawley: Let me ask you about assaults on federal property in places other than Washington, DC — Portland, for instance, Seattle. Do you regard assaults on federal courthouses or other federal property as acts of domestic extremism, domestic terrorism?
Judge Garland: Well, Senator, my own definition, which is about the same as the statutory definition, is the use of violence or threats of violence in attempt to disrupt the democratic processes. So an attack on a courthouse, while in operation, trying to prevent judges from actually deciding cases, that plainly is domestic extremism, domestic terrorism. An attack simply on a government property at night, or any other kind of circumstances, is a clear crime and a serious one, and should be punished. I don’t know enough about the facts of the example you’re talking about. But that’s where I draw the line. One is — both are criminal, but one is a core attack on our democratic institutions.

Last August, then-Attorney General William Barr described the attacks on the courthouse:

Behind the veil of “protests,” highly organized violent operators have carried out direct attacks on federal personnel and property, particularly the federal courthouse in Portland. Shielded by the crowds, which make it difficult for law enforcement to detect or reach them, violent opportunists in Portland have attacked the courthouse and federal officers with explosives, lasers, projectiles, and other dangerous devices. In some cases, purported “journalists” or “legal observers” have provided cover for the violent offenders; in others, individuals wearing supposed press badges have themselves attacked law enforcement or trespassed on federal property. More than 200 federal officers have been injured in Portland alone.

The riots resulted in the front of the courthouse being boarded up; the destruction of security equipment protecting the courthouse; and the breaking of windows in the offices of federal prosecutors.

Garland cited the domestic terrorism statute, which defines “domestic terrorism” as follows (18 USC § 2331):

(5) the term “domestic terrorism” means activities that— (A) involve acts dangerous to human life that are a violation of the criminal laws of the United States or of any State; (B) appear to be intended— (i) to intimidate or coerce a civilian population; (ii) to influence the policy of a government by intimidation or coercion; or (iii) to affect the conduct of a government by mass destruction, assassination, or kidnapping; and (C) occur primarily within the territorial jurisdiction of the United States

Notably, the statute does not confine acts of domestic terrorism to working hours.

  1. How sad at what this country is becoming. If you support the Democrats, it’s Ok to riot and destroy lives and property, but if you are Republican, it’s bad.

  2. The entire democratic party is the major problem. Everyday you hear how they are going to do this or that by using executive orders or something they want that the people do not.
    If we have domestic terrorism in the USA it is the Democrats party platform. We do not want socialism as our form of government. We don’t want the first or second amendment changed we do not more illegal aliens in our country. But this is being forced down our throats by a group of people called democrats.

  3. The good have been fighting Satan’s minions since the beginning of time and God is still keeping score. So keep the faith and keep battling evil.

  4. Evil and the left are like door to door sales people, you open the door to see who it is and before can close the door they jam their boot in the door way. So when it comes to evil keep a 5 lb hammer handy to whomp them toes but good. And then let the hounds loose . Patriots of God and country.

  5. That idiot should be treated as a revolutionary for the socialist/communist party emerging from the stupidity the DEMONRATS have exercised STEALING THE PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION.
    We, as Conservatives, cannot allow people like that to govern!
    It is time to take the country back. Two years from now, only cinders will remain!
    And we will be a THIRD WORLD country, begging for food!

  6. President Trump’s Lasting Legacy will be the SACRIFICES he has made for the American People!
    Mocked daily by the mainstream media and scorned by famous celebrities who used to be his friend, President Donald J. Trump knew what he had to do to Make America Great Again.

    He brought thousands of jobs back to America for the men and women of the working class, he has battled the evil “Radical Left” to maintain the foundational American values that have made our country the greatest superpower in the world.

    Leftists/Communists/Elites might not allow We The People to praise PRESIDENT TRUMP in the MEDIA or on any SOCIALIST BigTech Platforms, but the facts are undeniable that President Trump ultimately helped America profit and prosper for generations to come. Thank you President Trump. We hope to see you return to the Office of POTUS, soon, to continue to DRAIN THE DC SWAMP, MAKE USA Strong and Free and Safer, again. MAGA !

  7. Wow and I thought GARLAND might be a decent honorable and reasonable guy. Looks like I was wrong on all accounts. He is just one more leftist radical loon.
