Normally, the idea that you and the Attorney General of the United States agree would be a happy occasion, whether that’s on a general point of law or policy, or especially on the very personal point of hearing that you should not be prosecuted—haha.
But when you agree on how controlling and perverse the Left has become, it is not exactly a moment of joy. Bill Barr was interviewed by Mark Levin on Fox News Channel recently. He said, “the Left wants power because that is essentially their state of grace and their secular religion. They want to run people’s lives so they can design utopia for all of us.” Wynn Willard said: “This is the dream of the Left—to have the power to control everything and to make the decisions for everyone.” It’s in the book Fifty-Six Things The Left Will Take Away From You. The book was released the week before the Bill Barr comments.
Bill Barr said, “the Left . . . believes in tearing down the system, that what’s wrong about America today all has to do with the institutions we have, and we have to tear them down and they’re interested in complete political victory.” Wynn Willard said: “The Left hates all institutions that compete with government as a source of power in people’s lives: family, religion, private enterprise, and plain old-fashioned reliance in self. They must all be destabilized on the way to being destroyed or overpowered.”
Bill Barr said, “[the Left] view their political opponents as evil because we stand in the way of their progressive utopia that they’re trying to reach.” Wynn Willard said, “once an opposing voice is labeled evil and dangerous it seems Constitutional protections go out the window.”
Should the conclusion be that great minds may objectively think alike, or that those great minds instead have been nearly simultaneously overtaken by brain-eating amoeba—or that they were possessed by the same demon? Perhaps the Left will concede that demons may appear rational at times, but that’s all part of being demons! Tricky. Very slick. Kudos.
Bill Barr said: “Some of them are true believers, some of them are essentially revolutionary in their outlook. They believe in tearing down the system.” Wynn Willard said: “A few may just want a ride on the anarchy train wherever it takes them.” Unfortunately, Wynn Willard was talking about immigration protestors, while Bill Barr was actually speaking of members of Congress. Ouch. Filibuster that!
Regarding the media, Bill Barr said: “Absolutely, you know, they are projecting a narrative. When that word ‘narrative’ came into currency, I knew we were in trouble because the word ‘narrative’ really suggests that there’s no objective truth. There’s no real story of what happened. It’s just everyone has their own narrative, and you get to then the press can justify presenting a story that doesn’t really correspond with objective truth, but that it is our narrative. We have a narrative, you have a narrative.” Wynn Willard said: “Any given day, the reporting is colored by the biases of the major news outlets, and on too many days bona fide fake news is passed off as serious journalism that is supposed to be following those principles of truth, verification, and independence. The Left demands the news only the way they see it.”
No, the point is not that this writer and Bill Barr agree, but on that point of agreement—the destructiveness of the Left. There’s much more in the book.
Attorney General Barr goes on to address Antifa and Black Lives Matter, and what he describes as their revolutionary, socialist, communist bent. He also speaks of racism—in the way our Leftist-run educational system fails inner-city children.
Had enough of the Left for one sitting?
