Has every Democrat official in the United States gone completely insane?
Over the last week, we have watched as Democrat governors and mayors seem unable or unwilling to put a stop to the destruction.
In Massachusetts, the attorney general Maura Healey, the state’s top law enforcement official, said something that has to be seen to be believed.
The Washington Free Beacon reports:
Dem AG: Letting America Burn Is the Path to Growth
Massachusetts attorney general Maura Healey (D.) on Tuesday refused to denounce the violent riots occurring nationwide, likening them to the purifying effects of a forest fire.
“Yes, America is burning, but that’s how forests grow,” Healey said in a speech delivered to the Boston Chamber of Commerce.
Healey, who is also the co-chair of the Democratic Attorneys General Association, repeated her remarks in a tweet later the same day, adding that Americans need to “seize the opportunity” to rid the country of “institutionalized racism,” which she blamed for the violence.
Republican Attorneys General Association chairman Jeff Landry called on Healey to renounce her statement shortly after, criticizing her for “inflammatory rhetoric.”
“Maura Healey’s inflammatory rhetoric is part of the problem, not a solution,” Landry said. “An AG is elected to uphold the rule of law and protect life and property, not to violate their oath and incite additional violence by inflaming emotions and condoning lawlessness. AG Healey has an obligation to quell fear, not incite further damage and destruction.”

She should resign.
If law enforcement officials are going to give their blessing to the mob, they are not serving the people.
