Late Monday night, GOP Senator Josh Hawley (R-MO) alerted on Twitter that his Washington D.C. home, where his wife and newborn daughter live, had been attacked by ANTIFA.
“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 announced on Twitter. “They screamed threats, vandalized, and tried to pound open our door. Let me be clear: My family & I will not be intimidated by left-wing violence.”
According to Hawley’s reports, ANTIFA launched a full-scale riot upon the neighborhood where his house resides, “screaming threats through bullhorns, vandalizing property, pounding on the doors of homes and terrorizing innocent people and children.”
In the lead-up to Wednesday’s joint session of Congress where Hawley intends to challenge Joe Biden’s victory in Electoral College, a group known as ShutDownDC took credit for the attack on the Northern Virginian suburb. Their website boasts the group “uses strategic direct action to advance justice and hold officials accountable.”
“We came to let Hawley know that his actions are undemocratic and unacceptable,” ShutDownDC activist Patrick Young said in a post online. “Voters decided who they wanted to be president and now Hawley is trying to silence their voices, even after Republican election officials certified the vote counts. And let’s not forget that the bulk of the votes they would throw out come from Black and brown voters. This is an attempted coup waged by silencing the voices of people of color.”
The group plainly described the attack as a “vigil”, with Hawley responding with, “Now ‘vigil’ means screaming threats through bullhorns, vandalizing property, pounding on the doors of homes and terrorizing innocent people and children.” The police arrived on the scene at around 7:45 PM.
Earlier on the day, Hawley appeared on Fox News and explained his decision to object to the results of the Electoral College, along with eleven other Senators and dozens of GOP Representatives, during the certification process on Wedsdnday. In response, the Left has launched a violent rejection of the invoking of a Constitutional process, terrorizing an innocent neighborhod.
