Amidst a tense and interruption-filled hearing, Representative Ken Buck (R-CO) used a portion of his time to speak to Attorney General Barr, his fellow members, and Americans watching about the dangers Antifa poses to the nation — and why they must be stopped.
Buck referenced a peaceful pro-police rally held in his home state of Colorado. Families and older individuals were among the rally-goers who joined to express their appreciation for the men and women in blue.
“Counter protestors were given plenty of space to advocate their message,” Buck said. “But as the afternoon wore on, a swarm of violent Antifa thugs infiltrated peaceful Black Lives Matter counter protestors and began assaulting pro-police Americans.”
The Congressman said the local police were ordered to retreat once members of Antifa were seen at the rally. He highlighted one lieutenant who stayed to protect the peaceful protestors.
