Biden AG Pick Merrick Garland: Far-Left Rioters Attacking Federal Courthouse Not Domestic Terrorism Because It’s At Night When Court Is Closed

https://www.dailywire.com/news/biden-ag-pick-merrick-garland-far-left-rioters-attacking-federal-courthouse-not-domestic-terrorism-because-its-at-night-when-court-is-closed

Garland was Obama’s final nominee to the Supreme Court that McConnel stone walled and said nah we won’t be holding a hearing much less a vote. 
 

If you can’t call violent rioters looking to destroy federal buildings domestic terrorists regardless of which side you’re on you are a hack that has ZERO business anywhere near the SCOTUS. This piece of shit is looking to excuse it because he knows they are on his side instead of having some fucking balls. 
 

Terrorism: the use of intimidation and violence in pursuit of political aims. They’re fucking terrorists. Just like the idiots that stormed the capital on Jan 6.

Will he apply the same standards to the guy that blew up the ATT building? Just curious since apparently domestic terrorism only happens during business hours...

The Federal courthouse was not empty, it had federal marshalls inside.

Besides, US law has long considered mere property crimes to be terroristic.

What about all the riots last year when people were murdered along with setting fire to police stations with cops there. Murdering store owners because they had the audacity to ask rioters not to destroy what they worked their whole lives for (including black store owners) I believe they also attacked a federal court building. Just to name a few instances out of the thousands that took place.

So it isn’t at all politically intimidating to attack guarded federal building because it’s closed for the evening and has to stay closed due to violent protestors lobbing fireworks and Molotov cocktails? Just when I didn’t think you could get any more retarded. You go and say some shit like this.

You assholes who want to label American citizens as domestic terrorist, right or left, are what's wrong with this country.

They're criminals and need to be treated as such. The minute one side gets to label American citizens as terrorists, the other side will do the same as soon as they're in power.

Then our rights go down the drain.

Fuck all of you cowardly bitches who want to empower the federal government in such a devastating way because you're scared.

Um, you realize they were professional protesters, grifters, and youtubers looking for content. The ones inside at least. most of them didn't even vote in the last election, on record.

So that makes it ok to attack federal buildings in the name of a political cause?

It's a police matter. If laws were broken, you investigate and make arrests.

If you empower the government with the same tools they use to surveil and infiltrate foreign terror groups, you can kiss freedom goodbye.

But maybe you're okay with the government recording every phone call you make, every keystroke of your computer. Just to keep everyone safe, make sure you're not plotting destruction. Nipping terror in the bud.

If you have nothing to hide you have nothing to fear.

Is that what you want?

Police are government. It just depends on if they are federal state or local depending on the agency. 
 

As for privacy and the patriot act that law is a big shit show i disagree with in basic principle since they use it to violate the 4th amendment routinely. However, if you are a criminal that is engaging in terrorist acts and are caught you should be treated as such. Just because I call a terrorist a terrorist doesn’t mean I support illegal search of Americans and violation of rights. You’re conflating two separate things.

They're not just "calling" them terrorists. We're moving toward an official designation that will remove state and local governments from the equation and bring in the federal government. That's why they want to call them terrorists.

Once the federal government is involved, domestic terrorists are subject to the same rules as foreign terrorists, subject to the Patriot Act, including its most invasive and unconstitutional provisions.

Plus, the designation can be used politically by either side. It's a very slippery slope and one we should reject as a nation.

But we won't because partisan politics is more important to people than the constitution.

They attacked a federal courthouse. It’s already a federal issue.
