(National Sentinel) Uncivil: Fox News host Tucker Carlson and guest Dana Loesch discussed the growing state of political incivility in America on Wednesday, with both openly questioning whether it was possible to return to a place where the Left’s discourse took the form of debate instead of violence.
“The thing though that I keep hearing so much so often from individuals who are on the left is a way to justify this, they position their defense of Antifa or some of these mobs, and that’s what they were, mobs, chasing the Cruzes out of a restaurant and mobs that are doxxing Republican senators and their families,” Loesch began, referencing several instances where Republicans and Trump Cabinet officials were openly harassed in public.
“We’re on the cusp of something horrible,” Carlson said. “There are still widely respected people in this country. I don’t see my job as ginning up partisan rage and getting people to act out in violence.
“That’s a totally irresponsible thing to do. Where are the people on the left who are making that — I mean there are responsible people on the left. Why are they cowardly and can’t speak up now?” he asked.
Except Clinton wasn’t talking about a free people fact checking a free press, nor was Holder, nor Booker, nor Waters, and the Portland mob wasn’t combatting speech with more speech, they beat cars and blocked roads. The mob that stalked Cruz tried to stop his wife from leaving.

“I think Heidi Heitkamp is one of those. She condemned Hillary Clinton when Hillary Clinton said essentially that they’re not going to be civil so long as they don’t have power,” Loesch continued, noting that the North Dakota Democrat recently condemned Hillary Clinton’s comments about being uncivil to Republicans.
“But there needs to be more like Heidi Heitkamp, but at the same time though I kind of wonder if it’s not too late. I sincerely hope it’s not. I hope we can get back to a place where we can exchange ideas,” she added.
