AG Barr: Dem Lockdowns Are The "Greatest Intrusion On Civil Liberties In American History"

Attorney General William Barr had harsh words for the punishing lockdowns imposed on citizens in states controlled by Democrat governors.
In remarks delivered during a speech at Hillsdale College to commemorate Constitution Day, Barr called the lockdowns the "greatest intrusion on civil liberties in American history" which is impossible to argue with.
Power-drunk authoritarian governors of blue states like Michigan's Gretchen Whitmer, New York's Andrew Cuomo, Pennsylvania's Tom Wolf, California's Gavin Newsom along with other fascistic luminaries used the coronavirus to exact a cruel toll on their own citizens.
Residents in these states have been locked down in their own homes, ordered to close small businesses, been fined if they violate arbitrary decrees, and subjected to being snitched on by their neighbors, a despicable practice that has been encouraged by many Dem governors.
Americans were also forbidden from attending worship services, including on Easter Sunday, a particularly cruel form of torment and a blatant violation of the Constitution that delighted the Dem governors and godless pundits and celebs.
The Attorney General also triggered the race-obsessed left by invoking slavery as the only other time in American history when rights have been stripped away.
"You know, putting a national lockdown, stay-at-home orders is like house arrest. It’s — it’s — you know, other than slavery, which was a different kind of restraint, this is the greatest intrusion on civil liberties in American history."
Attorney General William Barr said Wednesday evening “other than slavery, which was a different kind of restraint,” coronavirus lockdowns were the “greatest intrusion on civil liberties in American history.”
Barr’s comments came during a Constitution Day celebration at Hillsdale College, commemorating the date in 1789 when the Constitution was signed by the Framers in Philadelphia.
Throughout the coronavirus pandemic, Barr has expressed alarm at the restrictions imposed by state authorities on First Amendment rights, particularly the freedom of religion.
In April, Barr’s Department of Justice (DOJ) issued a memorandum to all U.S. attorneys to “be on the lookout for state and local directives that could be violating the constitutional rights and civil liberties of individual citizens.”
He explained that while there might be “reasonable and temporary restrictions” on some First Amendment rights for the sake of public health, they should not become an “overbearing infringement.”
The political left's sick obsession with slavery - a practice that has been nonexistent in America for over 150 years - is reminiscent of a cult and that Barr would dare to go there didn't sit well with the purveyors of hate.
CNN's unhinged Don Lemon who is one of the members of the slavery cult condemned AG Barr and trotted out one of those "fact-checkers" who are the equivalent of those who ran the "memory hole" at George Orwell's infamous Ministry Of Truth.
Lemon also brought out a "panel" of CNN's staff propagandists to inveigh against Barr.

A CNN panel was stunned on CNN Tonight With Don Lemon Wednesday after Lemon read to them remarks Attorney General William Barr made earlier while speaking at Hillsdale College in Michigan. Barr compared lockdowns due to the ongoing coronavirus to slavery, though he admitted they’re not as bad.
“Putting a national lockdown, stay-at-home orders, is like house arrest. You know, other than slavery, which was a different kind of restraint, this is the greatest intrusion on civil liberties in American history,” Barr said, garnering applause from the audience.
After reading Barr’s statement, Lemon went to Dana Bash for comment, who, at first, couldn’t even get out any words.
“I—I’m kind of speechless,” Bash said after a moment of shock. “I really am.”
Bash then went on to point out the very large hole in Barr’s comparison.
“When people were enslaved, when human beings were enslaved in this country, they were owned by other people,” Bash said. “I mean, civil rights was, like, the notion of having civil rights was a pipe dream. They just had to be free, and then they could think about civil rights.”
However, none of the CNN hatemongers examined the basis of Barr's comparison, that being the lockdowns which are indeed the worst intrusion on civil liberties since slavery.
To the Democrats and their winged monkeys in the media, there is nothing that they hate more than the truth.
