“…They’ve marched, they’ve bled and yes, some of them died. This is hard. Every good thing is. We have done this before. We can do this again…” – Loretta Lynch, February 28 2017
The official U.S. Senate Democrats Facebook page posted a seriously disturbing video of former attorney general Loretta E. Lynch on February 28, 2017. The video is less than a minute long, but speaks volumes. Lynch opens with the fear-mongering claim that people are experiencing “great fear and uncertainty.” What is left unsaid, of course, is that the reason for this “great fear” is that Donald Trump was elected as president.
Further and predictably without any specifics, Lynch continues to say that “our rights” are “being assailed, being trampled on and even being rolled back.”
This irresponsible and disgusting allegation hangs there, unspecified.
But even these words are not enough for Loretta Lynch, soon-to-be proud recipient of the Thomas Jefferson Foundation Medal of Law from the University of Virginia. Lynch continues by claiming that “to move this country forward to achieve the great ideals of our Founding Fathers,” people should march, bleed and die. She may not say it outright, but she heavily implies it.
Here is the transcript:
“I know that this is a time of great fear and uncertainty for so many people. I know it’s a time of concern for people, who see our rights being assailed, being trampled on and even being rolled back. I know that this is difficult, but I remind you that this has never been easy. We have always had to work to move this country forward to achieve the great ideals of our Founding Fathers.
It has been people, individuals who have banded together, ordinary people who simply saw what needed to be done and came together and supported those ideals who have made the difference. They’ve marched, they’ve bled and yes, some of them died. This is hard. Every good thing is. We have done this before. We can do this again.”
Do WHAT again? What rights are being “rolled back”?
The U.S. Senate Democrats introduced the short video on Facebook by saying that it offers “words of inspiration.”
This falls under the category: “should be a news story.”
