He’s absolutely right to ask these questions…
During a recent airing of Fox’s “Special Report,” Attorney General William Barr asked why protestors “have broader rights” than others who simply want to attend church with social distancing rules.
According to Breitbart, Barr stated “I think that, as time has gone by, the degree of impingement on fundamental liberties has never been anything like this in the United States. Nationally, forbidding people from engaging in their livelihood, telling them to stay home — sort of a form of house arrest in many places.”
Fox’s Bret Baier asked, “Have these protests and demonstrations and what we’ve seen across the country changed that dynamic?”
Barr replied, “I think it should. Because it raises a fundamental question, which is, why should some people who are enjoying their First Amendment rights by going out and protesting have broader rights than other people who may want to exercise, their, for example, religious First Amendment rights and go to church as long as social distancing rules and things like that are complied with.”
