Election Protests

GOP’s Buck, Paul call for investigation of money tied to violent protests

Avatar

Colorado Rep. Ken Buck (R) has called upon the Department of Justice to investigate the source of funding for the anarchist protests that have gripped certain American cities since the beginning of the summer.

“The Justice Department needs to open an investigation into who is funding these violent riots,” tweeted Buck.

“If the Tea Party threatened a Democratic Senator and assaulted police officers like this, it would be leading CNN,” the Colorado Republican wrote on Friday according to Fox News. “Every conservative politician would be asked to condemn it. Where is the outrage?”

The call from Buck follows similar comments made by U.S. Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) last week. Paul’s comments came after he was attacked by a mob in D.C. while walking with his wife from the White House after the President’s nomination acceptance speech.

“I believe there are going to be people who are involved with the attack on us that actually were paid to come here, are not from Washington, D.C., and are sort of paid to be anarchists,” Paul told Fox News. “This is disturbing because really, if you’re inciting a riot that’s a crime, but if you’re paying someone to incite a riot that person needs to go to jail as well.”

Republicans have long warned that the protest movement in the U.S. is made up of hardcore socialists and Antifa activists that are funded by wealthy Democrat donors, but thus far the Department of Justice has failed to show any evidence to that effect.

To some extent, that’s because local authorities have resisted federal attempts to investigate those arrested for rioting in protest-plagued cities.

This is the first call by Congress members to investigate the financing of the protests.

“My question is: Who are these people?,” asked Paul. “Who paid for their hotel rooms? Who flew them in? Law enforcement needs to look at the funding of violent criminal activity like this. And national Democrats need to confront it. It’s organized. It’s paid for. It’s violent. It’s not about Black lives or any lives; it’s about anarchy and destruction.”

The Democrats are under pressure to disavow the violence that has accompanied calls for police reform as the violence has escalated between conservatives and socialist-Antifa protesters.

Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden emerged from seclusion today and did condemn the violence while blaming it on rival President Donald Trump.

“The deadly violence we saw overnight in Portland is unacceptable,” Biden said. “Shooting in the streets of a great American city is unacceptable. I condemn this violence unequivocally. I condemn violence of every kind by any one, whether on the left or the right.”

It’s only taken him four months to say so.

    The protester certainly do not work so where does the money come from? I’m wondering if they are getting any kind of government money like, unemployment, food stamps, child support of some type. If they are getting any type of government money it should be stopped at once!

    Yes it is time to investigate those who are funding the violence and also those elected officials who are sitting on their hands and tacitly supporting the riots.

    I agree. Follow the money. These people who are paying others to riot loot and destroy our cities are guilty of treason. They should be jailed and deported. This s anything but peaceful protesting and it’s disgusting. The democrats have a lot to answer for. Not only Biden, but the democratic governors, senators, mayors etc. they have stood aside and allowed the cities and people to be trashed and harmed. This must stop now. True Americans need to stand up and take our country back. Get rid of the do nothing politicians. They line their pockets and aren’t worth their salt! Let’s fire them

    If the US can foment unrest in other countries (which we do) like Libya, Syria, for example, other countries can be behind the unrest here. Who is in a position to provide the anarchists and communists with the weapons they’re using in the destruction of our cities and the violence against police and peaceful protesters?
