Loretta Lynch -- who served in the Obama administration as attorney general -- called on Americans to march and risk shedding blood, and even death, in a video that was posted on the Facebook page of Senate Democrats. Intended as “words of inspiration,” at under a minute, the former Cabinet member contends that people are experiencing “great fear and uncertainty,” thereby signalling that these are a result of Donald Trump’s presence in the White House.
Without citing evidence, Lynch said that “our rights” are “being assailed, being trampled on and even being rolled back.”
“I know that this is a time of great fear and uncertainty for so many people,” Lynch said. “I know it’s a time of concern for people, who see our rights being assailed, being trampled on and even being rolled back. I know that this is difficult, but I remind you that this has never been easy. We have always had to work to move this country forward to achieve the great ideals of our Founding Fathers.”
Lynch goes on to say, “It has been people, individuals who have banded together, ordinary people who simply saw what needed to be done and came together and supported those ideals who have made the difference. They’ve marched, they’ve bled and yes, some of them died. This is hard. Every good thing is. We have done this before. We can do this again.”
