Liz Harrington to Newsmax TV: Fighting Lawlessness 'Unites' Americans

Republican National Committee spokeswoman Liz Harrington said it is the fight against lawlessness that is uniting Americans right now during a Friday appearance on Newsmax TV.

She told Newsmax TV’s “American Agenda” that some people are fighting against the unlawful treatment of George Floyd, who was killed by a police officer in Minneapolis, and others are fighting against the lawlessness that has resulted from people looting and rioting.

“I think all Americans do agree that we want justice to be done in this case,” she said, adding justice isn’t being served by protesters who are rioting and looting.

“I think that’s what being lost now, unfortunately, because these protests have been hijacked by radical elements of left-wing rioters trying to light churches on fire, attacking cops, killing police officers. That’s not justice for the Floyd family.”

She said people who are “burning down buildings, destroying innocent small business owners' livelihoods, looting and rioting — that’s not justice either, that’s lawlessness.”

Harrington responded to comments conservative commentator Candace Owens made about Floyd. Owens posted in a Facebook video that she doesn’t see Floyd as a martyr. 

“The family of George Floyd deserves justice for the way that he died, but I also am not going to accept the narrative that this is the best the black community has to offer,” Owens said. “I have no apologies to make. George Floyd is not my martyr. He can be yours.”

Harrington said she has seen a lot of dissenting opinions being suppressed.

“I am not going to suppress anybody’s right to their opinion,” she said. “I think we always need more voices not less. The real frightening thing that I am seeing is the suppression of dissent. You can’t even clean up graffiti off of a public building without someone accusing you of being racist.”

She said some left-wing protesters don’t want to have an open debate or “look at facts and data.”

“I think it’s just very disheartening to see far-left radical elements, that have always wanted to destroy this country, interjecting and saying, 'No, we have to destroy capitalism.' It has nothing to do with George Floyd," she said.
