The back story on Josh Hawley being terrorized by ANTIFA


The protesters in front of Hawley's home in Virginia.


Josh Hawley Says Candlelight Protest 'Terrorized' His Family, Virginia Neighbors


Armed with votive candles and megaphones, a small band of activists protested last night outside of Sen. Josh Hawley's home in Virginia.

Hawley responded on Twitter, calling them "Antifa scumbags" and describing a terrifying scene ó one contradicted by a 50-minute video of the nonviolent demonstration.

"Tonight while I was in Missouri, Antifa scumbags came to our place in DC and threatened my wife and newborn daughter, who can't travel," Hawley tweeted. "They screamed threats, vandalized, and tried to pound open our door. Let me be clear: My family & I will not be intimidated by leftwing violence."

Activists in protest movements have debated the tactic of visiting the homes of politicians, but the video shows a low-heat action with no "leftwing violence" or threats ó unless promising to return can be considered a threat. If there was any vandalism, it wasn't evident in the livestream and police who responded didn't seem to take any notice.

1. Why would people who are...

Anti-fascist upset Mr. Hawley so much? Being against fascism would be a positive attribute to most people. I guess the only people who'd find anti-fasism to be bad would be....... FASCISTS. You're outing yourself Mr. Hawley, and the entire world knows where your political ideology exists. You're a fascist, Mr. Hawley, and REAL Americans don't look kindly on fascists.

3. The truth is an existential threat to RWers.

Without their lies, they are nothing.

5. I am not a fan of these protests

I don't like it when they happen to our side and so it's hypocritical of me to say it's okay for our side.

Plus, it's easy for vile anti-American criminals like Hawley to lie about what happened

6. I think there's an enormous sense of frustration behind the tactic.

Hawley, like Trump, just hides from the Press & Citizenry because of his privilege. He never argues in good faith; never provides substance, only rhetoric. He requires a one-way conversation.

Sorry his kids got scared; hope they grow up to learn their father is a self-serving dickbag. Hope Mrs. Hawley had her suspicions that her husband is a self-serving dickbag confirmed.
