Exclusive–Louisiana AG Jeff Landry: ‘The Democratic Party Would Like to Abolish the Constitution’

Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry

Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry told Breitbart News Daily on Thursday that the “Democratic Party would like to abolish the Constitution” to further its political ideology.

Jeff Landry first discussed Louisiana Gov. Jon Bel Edwards, whom Landry argues has pushed his agenda through executive fiat rather than through legislation. Landry, however, has stopped his executive encroachment through various lawsuits as attorney general.

Landry told Breitbart News Daily, “The governor embarked on the same establishment style politics and the fact that he started to govern via executive fiat. One of his first executive orders was basically to create a protected class for the LGBTQ population. It was something that the Louisiana legislature had rejected a number of times. It was completely problematic and was based upon a test, and not an objective one. So we took him to court, and we won, we took him to court, and we beat him in the district court. We beat him at the appellate level and the state Supreme Court.”

“Executive fiat is not part of our democracy,” Landry added.

Landry continued, “We have a legislative branch that creates the law and the executive carries it out. When it works in that fashion, America works.”

The Louisiana attorney general then cautioned that he remains distraught by the left’s attacks against Americans’ right to bear arms.

Landry told Breitbart News Daily, “I am very concerned about the attacks on the Second Amendment by the Democratic party. Absolutely if they had the chance, they want your guns. They would love to confiscate the guns of law-abiding Americans.”

The Louisiana conservative then suggested that the Americans are beginning to understand that freedom works and subsequently the left is freaking out.

“People are beginning to understand American freedom again,” Landry argued. “I think the left is understanding that we got this going the right way. We’re going down the path of socialism and communism which is exactly what the Democratic Party stands for.”

Breitbart News Daily hosts Alex Marlow and Matthew Boyle then mentioned Thursday night’s live town hall event, the “Masters of the Universe: Big Tech vs. Free Speech and Privacy,” in Louisiana on Thursday night.

Landry contended, “At the end of the day the Democratic party would like to abolish the Constitution and get rid of the Bill of Rights that just infringes on their political ideology.”

Facebook’s reputation plummeted after reports revealed that the data analytics firm Cambridge Analytica used the social media platform to gain access to the personal data of more than 50 million users. A recent Reuters poll suggests that only 41 percent of consumers trust Facebook to comply with American privacy laws.

“It was perfectly fine for Barack Obama to do the same thing,” Landry explained.

Landry concluded, “The fact that all of the data was used that Google and Facebook openly shared it to the Obama campaign. But all of a sudden, when conservatives or the Republican party has an opportunity to access that data and win with it legally, it’s problematic.”
