BRYAN DEAN WRIGHT: This country is on fire. We are facing an insurrection by people that we don't quite understand who they are, but by all indications, they are violent leftist thugs. And what Secretary Esper doesn't quite seem to get either is that the nation is panicking. 71 percent of us want the National Guard in our cities tonight. 58 percent of us want the military in our cities tonight. Alright, the people are panicking. The country is on fire.
Now, who is attacking us? Mr. Esper should know this. It's antifa. Department of Justice, NYPD, others are saying this very clearly. These are people, by the way, that we faced back in 1960's, 70's, and early 80's. These were people who were far leftists, Marx, Lenin, folks who embraced that ideology. They've allied with Black Panther movement and it took many years to finally put it down. Very dangerous. And now this same group who is allied, by the way, with the democratic socialists -- we're talking Bernie Bros and Ms. Ocasio-Cortez, they are back.
They are back with firebombs, they are back with bricks in our suburbs, in our downtowns. That's something that Mr. Esper clearly doesn't understand.
What does that leave, Tucker? Let me tell you what it leaves. Vigilante justice.
TUCKER CARLSON (HOST): That's exactly right.
WRIGHT: It's you and me and everybody watching this program arming ourselves. Is that how we run a republic? No sir, it is not, and you do not want a country that goes there. And that is precisely where the nation is headed and we need for all of our leadership to understand this.
And if Secretary Esper doesn't get it, doesn't understand that the oath is to protect ourselves from threats both foreign and domestic, by God, get the hell out of the Pentagon and let somebody lead who gets it. Because that is the oath that he took, that I took, and the people of this country demanded of our leadership in this moment because we are on fire. Someone do something about it.
CARLSON: I couldn't agree more.
