Dem Rep. Jayapal: ‘White Men With Swastikas’ Are Getting Trump’s ‘Agenda Done’


Democrat Rep. Pramila Jayapal says ‘white men with swastikas’ are getting Trump’s ‘agenda done.’

“When white men with swastikas storm a government building with guns, there is no need for the president to ‘activate’ you because they’re getting the president’s personal agenda done,” she said. “But when black people and people of color protest police brutality, systemic racism, and the president’s very own lack of response to those critical issues, then you forcibly remove them with armed federal officers [and] pepper bombs because they are considered terrorists by the president.”

JAYAPAL: “Mr. Barr, apparently the President believes that you can be activated to implement the President’s agenda and dominate American people exercising First Amendment rights if they’re protesting against him. But let’s look at how you respond when the protesters are supporters of the President. On two separate occasions after President Trump tweeted ‘liberate Michigan’ to subvert stay-at-home orders to protect public the health of people in Michigan, protesters swarmed the Michigan Capitol carrying guns. Some with swastikas, Confederate flags, and one even with a dark-haired doll with a noose around its neck. Are you aware that these protesters called for the Governor to be lynched, shot and beheaded?”

BARR: “No.”

JAYAPAL: “You’re not aware of that?”

BARR: “I was not aware of that.”

JAYAPAL: “Major protests in Michigan, you’re the Attorney General and you didn’t know that the protesters called for the Governor to be lynched, shot and beheaded? So obviously you couldn’t be concerned about that.”

BARR: “Well, there are a lot of protests around the United States, and on June 1st — “

JAYAPAL: “Attorney General Barr, you seem to be engaging with protests in certain part of the country. You’re very aware of those. But when protesters with guns and swastikas — “

BARR: “I am aware of — “

JAYAPAL: “Excuse me, Mr. Barr, this is my time, and I control it. You are aware of certain kinds of protesters, but in Michigan when protesters carried guns and Confederate flags and swastikas and called for the Governor of Michigan to be beheaded and shot and lynched, somehow you’re not aware of that. Somehow you didn’t know about it, so you didn’t send federal agents in to do to the President’s supporters what you did to the President’s protesters. In fact, you didn’t put pepper balls on those protesters. So the point I’m trying to make here, Mr. Barr, that I think is very important for the country to understand, is that there is a real discrepancy in how you react as the Attorney General, the top cop in this country when white men with swastikas storm a government building with guns, there is no need for the President to ‘activate you’ because they’re getting the President’s personal agenda done. But when black people and people of color protest police brutality, systemic racism, and the President’s very own lack of response to those critical issues, then you forcibly remove them with armed federal officers, pepper bombs, because they are considered terrorists by the President. You take an aggressive approach to Black Lives Matter protests, but not to right-wing extremists threatening to lynch a governor if it’s for the Trump’s — if it’s for the President’s benefit. Did I get it right, Mr. Barr?”

BARR: “I have responsibility for the federal government, and the White House is the seat — “

JAYAPAL: “Mr. Barr, let me just make it clear, you are supposed to represent the people of the United States of America — “

BARR: “Michigan authorities can handle — “

JAYAPAL: “ — not violate people’s First Amendment rights. You are supposed to uphold democracy and secure equal justice under the law, not violently dismantle certain protesters based on the President’s personal agenda.”

NADLER: “The gentlelady’s time has expired.”

JAYAPAL: “Mr. Chairman, I would like to ask unanimous consent to also introduce into the record a report from the MIT Election Data and Science Lab which says that over the past 20 years, more than 250 million ballots have been cast by mail, and the fraud rate is .00006 percent.”

NADLER: “Without objection. Mr. Reschenthaler.”

RESCHENTHALER: “Thank you, Mr. Chairman. And thank you, AG Barr for being here today, I truly appreciate it. And I’m sincere when I say it’s an honor. AG Barr — “

BARR: “Can I just ask you for one minute?”

RESCHENTHALER: “To respond? Yes.”

BARR: “As I made clear, moving 8th Street out to I Street as the perimeter was a decision made the day before. It was justified by the extreme rioting that was going on around the White House. I don’t remember Captain DeMarco, who is the same Captain DeMarco who ran as a Democratic candidate for Congress in Maryland, even being close to the discussions as to what was going on. Now, the fact is that the movement was not geared to the behavior of that particular crowd. It was geared to the fact that we were moving the perimeter out so we could put a fence up on H Street — by H Street. But it is a fact that the park police reported — and I saw it myself — projectiles being thrown from that crowd. So I did not consider them at all peaceful protesters. I’m sorry, thank you for giving me that opportunity.”

RESCHENTHALER: “You’re welcome, AG Barr.”
