U.S. Sen. John Barrasso is not happy with the Democratic Party’s response to mob violence, including the toppling of statues across America.
Appearing on FOX News earlier this week, Barrasso said the lack of condemnation of such actions by the Democratic Leadership was disturbing to him.
“Nancy Pelosi has now surrendered to the mob and it just shows you just how radical and out of touch the Democrat party has become under this coalition that the Democrats have put together with the Socialists, the Marxists, and the anarchists,” Barrasso said.
The senator mentioned the destruction of a statue of explorer Christopher Columbus in Baltimore — where Pelosi’s father served as mayor — and condemned her for the lack of a response.
“[Mayor Pelosi] likely contributed money and time to putting up the statue of Christopher Columbus. Now she is fine with tearing it down,” he said.
Barrasso said the mob removal of statues was emblematic of a larger issue that Democrats are endorsing called the ‘cancel-culture.’
“it’s not just about the statue,” he said. “It’s this whole movement of the far, far dangerous left. People who want to cancel and defund the police.”
“They want to change America permanently — for the worse — with taking away free speech, canceling who we are and where we’ve come from,” he said.
Barrasso said people he’s spoken to in Wyoming are “absolutely offended” by not only the actions of the violent protestors but how Speaker Pelosi has “surrendered to them.”
“She will have to make her own decision for herself but the whole Democrat party is heading this way,”he said. It is a very dangerous coalition for our country. The things they want to do.”
Barrasso said he knew the viewers of the FOX program would stand for the mob movement and he “wouldn’t stand for it either.”
