el midgetron Posted January 22 #1 Share Posted January 22 On Friday’s broadcast of HBO’s “Real Time,” former Attorney General Bill Barr stated that “the main danger to our democracy, frankly, is the sort of radical progressive movement” and that free public discourse is under attack in a way that “on a daily basis makes the McCarthy era look like child’s play.” Barr said, “[W]hen confronted with the question, if Trump is the party’s nominee and he’s running against Biden, who would you vote for? And I say it’s hard for me to see — I just find it hard to believe that I could vote against the Republican nominee under those circumstances, because I think the main threat to the United States and the main danger to our democracy, frankly, is the sort of radical progressive movement and the lurch to the left that has taken place –.” Host Bill Maher then cut in to ask, “More than the guy who you actually said tried to steal an election?” Barr cut in to respond, “Absolutely.” And “What happens in our country on a daily basis makes the McCarthy era look like child’s play.” Barr concluded, “Speech is essential to democracy just like voting. If someone says what’s the major danger now to democracy? I agree elections are critical and the right to vote is critical but the thing that’s most under attack is public discourse, which is essential. It precedes voting.” https://www.breitbart.com/politics/2023/01/20/barr-radical-progressive-movement-is-main-danger-to-our-democracy-today-makes-the-mccarthy-era-look-like-childs-play/ Barr said on NBC’s “Meet The Press” that he’d favor a generic Republican nominee over the former president if he decides to run again. But when host Chuck Todd asked whether he would support Trump over Joe Biden in a potential presidential rematch, the former attorney general said: “Well, I think there are a lot of American people right now that might prefer having him back in office than Biden.”….. …….Pressed further on whether he could support Trump after presenting the former president as unfit for office in his recent book, Barr described elections as a “binary choice” that can be about the “lesser of two evils” and claimed that “the progressive wing of the Democratic Party is dangerous for the United States.” https://www.politico.com/news/2022/03/13/barr-indicates-could-support-trump-over-biden-00016869 5 1 1 Top Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
