DANA PERINO (CO-HOST): AOC says you've got to be radicalized and this is not hyperbole. Greg?

GREG GUTFELD (CO-HOST): No. I was laughing at it but in their minds it's not hyperbole. This is intimidation. And remember, when they would go to peoples houses, they're not going to intimidate -- they are not going to those houses to intimidate those specific people. That's to intimidate everybody else --

PERINO: From doing it.

GUTFELD: Yeah -- it's basically saying you're next. We are going to do this to McConnell, but maybe Jesse -- you're going to be next. And this is what this does. It scares the crap out of people who should be speaking up. So you're going to see moderate Democrats silent. Anchors of TV shows. Any nominees. CEOs of corporations. These are the people that are always going to be thinking "You know, this crocodile might eat Dagen McDowell but that crocodile's not going to eat me." But sooner or later, that crocodile eats everybody who stays quiet. The worst thing about it is you keep hearing all these people saying "Burn it down, Oh! If his nomination happens -- burn it down."

You're saying that after a billion dollars of damage was done with businesses and homes were burned down. No class at all. And I am going to make one last word. If the government doesn't step up and deal with this violence, it's going to be up to the public. Cause this is truly taxation without representation. Right? If you're not being protected but you're paying your taxes, that Second Amendment starts looking miraculous.
