Bar Association: Investigate Barr for Praising Judeo-Christian Values

If would be difficult to overstate the political extremism, irresponsibility, and outright malice of the liberal legal establishment. The New York City Bar Association actually sent a letter to Congress demanding that Attorney General Bill Barr be investigated for “ethics” violations that consist only of thought crimes — one of which is expressing a positive view of the “Judeo-Christian values” upon which Western Civilization is based.

From the Wall Street Journal:

[T]he organization is incensed that Mr. Barr gave a speech at the University of Notre Dame praising “Judeo-Christian values.” They say he implicitly rejected other religions and therefore disregarded his obligation to appear unbiased.

To be “unbiased” is to hold only biases approved by radical leftists.

Barr’s alleged iniquity does not stop with praising Judeo-Christian values:

The bar continues with a laundry-list of partisan complaints about Mr. Barr, including his vocal opposition to criminal-justice reform, his summary of the Mueller investigation and his interpretation of the Inspector General’s report on the FBI’s conduct in the 2016 election.

These are contested issues that members of the bar are entitled to disagree with or challenge, but it’s laughable to suggest they may constitute “ethics” violations.

Progressives have replaced morality with political correctness. In their world, “ethical” means “compliant with liberal ideology.”

As for actual ethics violations,

Nowhere does the letter point to Mr. Barr bringing unwarranted prosecutions or failing to enforce the law.

But actual ethics violations are irrelevant. A previous Attorney General helped Mexican criminals smuggle guns across the border. Since the probable motive was to generate propaganda against the Second Amendment, it is doubtful that the New York City Bar Association had a problem with it.

On a tip from Varla.
