Harmeet Dhillon Appears on ‘FNC’s ‘The Ingraham Angle’ To Discuss the Radical Left and Antifa’s Violence

According to Dhillon:

Well, my reaction is that those who think that the AOC squad are just a temporary blip are mistaken. It’s clear that they are pushing the Democratic Party to the left. I mean, I was watching that press conference and that photograph opportunity closely to see if there was any blinking and signs of a hostage situation because it isn’t Nancy Pelosi’s nature to be that inflammatory, but she’s been pushed there. She’s used the terms of “the squad” such as the current occupant of the White House to refer to the president. And so, I think this is a dangerous development, Laura, for the Democrats.

Laura, it’s really critical because it’s going to affect the outcome of elections. Let me tell you a little bit about what I’ve been doing. So, we began to see this type of political violence in the streets that Andy talked about. Dating back to the 2016 election, there was a major riot in San Jose after then candidate Trump spoke during the election. The purpose of that was to intimidate Trump supporters and prevent them from feeling comfortable coming out to vote and they succeeded. I heard from countless people who attended that event saying they’ll never go to a political rally again because they don’t want to be assaulted. What is important about that, Laura, is that the mayor of San Jose enabled that, we’re seeing the exact same behavior in Portland a couple of days ago. The mayor of Portland gave a press conference trying to kind of explain, and obfuscate, and apologize for what happened there.

Yeah, I mean, I’m trying to struggle for a politically correct response to that. It is nonsense what the mayor just said. Portland is unusual and that he’s actually the police commissioner. He’s the head of the civilian command of the police in Portland. So, he may have been there, he may not have been there. It’s irrelevant because these assaults have occurred in Portland several times over the last couple of years. The results have all been the same. No arrests except for — certainly not any of the Antifa people have been held accountable.

Right. On top of that, he’s also been seen at these Antifa events in other states as well. So, this is a critical thing for your audience to understand that there are older national leaders who direct these efforts and then are these young, feckless, easily led people in each of these cities. But, they’re highly organized – they have attorneys, they have funding, they use social media to organize and disperse. This is very dangerous and it’s a growing problem in America, Laura.

Thank you, Laura.
