If you were waiting for someone in the Democratic party to condemn the mob violence of Antifa in Portland, Oregon, you’re going to have to wait a little longer.
Attorney General William Barr appeared before the House this week and instead of condemning the violence, Democrats repeatedly attacked Barr for the efforts the federal government has made to protect the courthouse there.
Barr took the Democrats to school, when he was allowed to spak.
WATCH: AG Barr Calls Out Democrats for Not Condemning Mob Violence
Attorney General William Barr called out Democrats on Tuesday during a House Judiciary Committee hearing for failing to condemn mob violence and attacks on the Mark O. Hatfield U.S. Courthouse in Portland, Oregon in recent weeks.
“What makes me concerned for the country is [that] this is the first time in my memory that the leaders of one of our great two political parties, the Democratic Party, are not coming out and condemning mob violence and the attack on federal courts,” Barr said.
“Why can’t we just say: ‘Violence against federal courts has to stop?’ Could we hear something like that?”
Barr was testifying about the federal law enforcement response to protect the courthouse, which has been vandalized and firebombs by what Democrats, including former Vice President Joe Biden, have called “peaceful protesters.”
Those “protesters” have also attacked the federal officials defending the building.
Here are some clips:

We now live in an America where Democrats won’t condemn mob violence.
It’s because they know the people committing it are their voters.
