Attorney General: Fight Terror With Love
Speaking to LGBT activists in Orlando, Attorney General Loretta Lynch said that love and compassion are the best responses to terrorism during remarks to the media on Tuesday.
Lynch said the Department of Justice stood in solidarity with the LGBT community “in the light” following a Muslim terrorist’s massacre of 49 people at a gay nightclub last week.
“We stand with you to say that the good in this world far outweighs the evil, that our common humanity transcends our differences, and that our most effective response to terror and to hatred is compassion, it’s unity, and it’s love,” Lynch said.
Following the remarks, South Carolina Representative Jeff Duncan took to twitter to say the following: “All You Need Is Love” is a great Beatles song but a horrible foreign policy. Seriously @LorettaLynch, resign immediately.”
Lynch has been in the news for defending the administration’s decision to redact transcripts between law enforcement and the terrorist, Omar Mateen, during his attack.
