What is about the radical leftist chaos currently being perpetrated in the country?

It’s primarily happening in cities run by Democrats so it’s a challenge due to the weak leadership and the failure to actually prosecute a lot of the cases going on, so that’s a problem.

But the federal government has been taking action and it may start producing results.

On Friday, it was announced the that DOJ had created a task force to stop the organized crime of the “anti-government extremists.”

From Washington Examiner:

U.S. Attorneys Craig Carpenito and Erin Nealy Cox, who are based in the District of New Jersey and Northern District of Texas, respectively, have been chosen by Attorney General William Barr to lead the effort designed to monitor activity from violent anarchist groups and stop planned criminal activity.

“Some pretend to profess a message of freedom and progress, but they are in fact forces of anarchy, destruction, and coercion,” Barr wrote in a memo shared by DOJ spokeswoman Kerri Kupec, who said it was focused on “violent anti-government extremists.” [….]

“We have evidence that anti-government violent extremists — including those who support the ‘Boogaloo,’ those who self-identify as Antifa, and others — will pose continuing threats of lawlessness. Some of these violent extremists, moreover, may be fortified by foreign entities seeking to sow chaos and disorder in our country,” Barr said.

“The Department of Justice will respond to these violent groups in the same way we respond to other organized criminal or terrorists networks — by disrupting their violent activities and ultimately dismantling their capability to threaten the rule of law,” Barr wrote.


Barr said that the DOJ was using 35 joint terrorist task forces across the country to help in the investigations. He said that they already had over 500 investigations under way.

From Washington Examiner:

“When the real violence started around May 25, 26, and so forth, we started using our joint terrorist task forces around the country. And there are 35 of them around the country,” Barr said.

“And now they are starting to go full bore, cranking out investigations, indictments against the people who are involved in this violence. So we’ve had scores of indictments already for such things as arson, destruction of federal property, things like that. And we have, right now, about 500 investigations underway,” he added.

That’s one way to end this, there has to be accountability and consequences with teeth. Right now, they know that in Democratic cities, there largely aren’t any consequences for their actions. If they are arrested, the charges are often just dismissed. Start giving people real penalty and real time, as well as locking up the leaders and the organizers and that will help put a break on some of this insanity. Expose the monetary networks and shame anyone involved in supporting these people. Call them the terrorists they are.


If they don’t get it, shut them down.
