He is absolutely right to do this.
Attorney General Loretta Lynch attended a fundraiser last week for a Muslim advocacy group where she declared that her greatest fear was not the threat posed by radical Islamic jihadism, but a violent backlash against Muslims by Americans who feel they are under attack.
Lynch essentially declared the First Amendment and freedom of speech to be null and void under this current administration, and hinted at the imposition of Islamic Shariah law on the American people when she stated that she’d arrest those who are critical of Islam.
“When we talk about the First amendment we (must) make it clear that actions predicated on violent talk are not American. They are not who we are, they are not what we do, and they will be prosecuted,” Lynch said on Thursday, cautioning those using rhetoric that “edges towards violence.”
In response to the shocking declaration, former New York governor and nominal presidential candidate George Pataki took to Twitter to more or less dare Lynch to arrest him, according to Breitbart.
Pataki wrote, “We must declare war on radical Islam. Loretta Lynch I’m not edging toward violent speech, I’m declaring we kill them. Go ahead, arrest me.”
We must declare war on radical Islam. @LorettaLynch I'm not edging toward violent speech, I'm declaring we kill them. Go ahead, arrest me.

Pataki, who has tangled with the Obama White House before, was right to call out attorney general Loretta Lynch, and he is not the only one publicly displaying their defiance to the outrageous statements made by her.
