President Trump has consistently called on tens of thousands of supporters to remain peaceful and avoid violence at all costs after they marched to the U.S Capitol and stormed the building to reject the Electoral College Votes results. His supporters moved in and had also attacked a media section near the Capitol Building, in which the President told his supporters to “go home.”
“I am asking for everyone at the U.S. Capitol to remain peaceful. No violence! Remember, WE are the Party of Law & Order – respect the Law and our great men and women in Blue. Thank you!” President Trump tweeted.
Mike Pence joined the conversation and reiterated their stance against violence. He ordered everyone to respect law enforcement officers and immediately stop the violence and destruction taking place at the U.S Capitol.
The President called on the National Guard after a woman was fatally shot at the chaos of the scene. The victim, Ashli Babbit, was a 14-year veteran who served four tours with the U.S Air Force. Her husband said she was a great patriot and strong supporter of President Trump.
“Political violence begets political violence. That is an iron law. We have to be against that, no matter who commits the violence or under what pretext, no matter how many self-interested demagogues assure us the violence is justified or necessary. We have a duty to oppose all of this, not simply because political violence kills other people’s children, but because in the end it doesn’t work,” Tucker Carlson said.
Carlson added that peaceful protests are the right of every American and remain to be the most basic and ancient freedoms that we have. He said that people deserve to have a right to speak without being censored, the right to assemble, make a living, and defend their families.
The Fox News host also argued the other side of the protest in which our new leaders tried to silence the opinions of millions who found the election to be fake rather than convince them that democracy works and the system is real.
While the attack against the Capitol and those involved will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law, those who gathered peacefully outside of the Capitol deserve to have their voices heard. The radical left has tried to kick everyone off Twitter and call them conspiracy theorists instead of digging deep into the election lawsuits facing multiple states. They want everyone to do as they are told.
Democracy in the United States is about talking, organizing, and voting. What’s the rest of it for if the Democrats just silence everyone?
