AG Barr On ANTIFA: ‘Essentially Bolsheviks’ Waging "Urban Guerrilla Warfare'

Attorney General William Barr had harsh words for the violent criminals that are waging war on America as well as a complicit media that covers for them.
In a wide-ranging interview on Fox News' "Life, Liberty & Levin" the nation's top law enforcement official sat down with conservative host Mark Levin and discussed the dark forces that are sowing the seeds of chaos in a summer of hate and fear.
Barr's strongest comments were directed at ANTIFA which serves as the paramilitary arm or a radicalized Democratic party that has more in common with classic communism than with FDR and JFK.
In drawing such a comparison, AG Barr pointed out that those rioting and targeting police in Portland and other Democrat-controlled cities are "essentially Bolsheviks" which is a reference to the violent movement that overthrew the Russian aristocracy in 1917 and later became the communist party.
According to Barr:
"They are a revolutionary group that is interested in some form of socialism, communism. They're essentially Bolsheviks. Their tactics are fascistic."
His comments are also applicable to the Marxist-inspired Black Lives Matter movement which serves as an exoskeleton for the more extremist ANTIFA forces and is immune to criticism because anyone doing so will be tarred as a racist and canceled.
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."
More AG Barr via partial transcript:
"It’s a form of sort of – it’s a new form of urban guerrilla warfare. Mao – Mao Tse Tung used to speak about the guerrilla being like fish swimming in the ocean the way the guerrilla moves through the people. The guerrilla hides out among the people as a fish in the ocean.
And what they do is, they are essentially shielding themselves, or shrouding themselves in First Amendment activity. And they go in to 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 highjack these demonstrations and they provoke violence and they have various tiers of people from the sort of top provocateurs, down through people who are their minions and sort of run the violent missions.
But it’s a difficult phenomenon to deal with. They’re highly organized at these demonstrations. And these tactics that they use are designed – and the way the media responds to them, of course -- the media doesn’t take footage of what’s happening. They don’t take the footage of the rocks being thrown."
Contrary to the false narrative that is being put out by the corrupt media, these are not merely "peaceful" protesters but those who hate us for our freedoms and are being bankrolled by some heavy hitters.
