The Attorney General of the United States, recently seen actively participating in his fellow sleazy authoritarian goon’s impeachable schemes, has some solemn thoughts:
U.S. Attorney General William Barr on Friday decried what he saw as a concerted attack on religious freedom perpetrated by state governments that use laws as a “battering ram to establish moral relativism.”
In a 37-minute speech at the University of Notre Dame’s law school, Barr did not take questions from the media, which was escorted out of the room during a discussion period, but spoke passionately about “consequences of moral chaos” and the infringement of rights for organized religions and those of religious faith.
That’s it, that’s the joke.
Meanwhile, speaking of law enforcement officials with a tendency to massively overrate their own righteousness:
If you read Comey’s memoir, the story that he doesn’t realize he’s telling you is a story about a man so convinced of his own heroism that he constantly searches for opportunities to intervene and ends up making things worse. An extremely American story. pic.twitter.com/MW7KkSd55H— Spencer Ackerman (@attackerman) October 12, 2019
No thanks, but no thanks.
