A former employee of the uber left organization ThinkProgress, from which the leftist mainstream press takes its cues, is confirmed to have been involved in the harassment and threatening of Fox News Channel’s Tucker Carlson last week.
“Officers went to the home of Dylan Petrohilos, who was part of the protest and a former #J20 defendant (one of several people who faced charges after protesting on President Donald Trump’s inauguration day),” said Shadowproof.
Petrohilos is a former employee of ThinkProgress, per his verified Facebook page.
A post on his page said that he left the organization to venture out on his own.
If this is “progress,” perhaps America should re-think it.
The political left has confused legitimate protest with rioting. Petrohilos’ involvement in causing millions of dollars of property damage on inauguration was not “protest.” Nor was his involvement in trampling on Carlson’s lawn, nearly banging down his door, and threatening his life – all while Carlson’s wife hid in the pantry and called 911.
ThinkProgress is part of the Center For American Progress Action Fund (CAP), an organization deeply embedded within the Democratic Party. Hillary R. Clinton’s campaign chairman John Podesta, who also oversaw President Barack H. Obama’s transition to the presidency, is the former president of CAP. He stacked the Obama administration with CAP employees, and CAP even acted as spokespeople for Obama
Matt Yglesias, cofounder of Vox, formerly worked for CAP. He defended the rioters that turned up at Carlson’s house, saying that he “honestly cannot empathize with Tucker Carlson’s wife at all — I agree that protesting at her house was tactically unwise and shouldn’t be done — but I am utterly unable to identify with her plight on any level.”
He also laid the blame for the incident squarely at the feet of President Donald J. Trump and Carlson himself.
“[T]he idea behind terrorizing [Carlson’s] family … is to make them feel some of the fear that the victims of MAGA-inspired violence feel thanks to the non-stop racial incitement coming from Tucker, Trump, etc.,” he said on Twitter.
Yglesias later deleted his entire Twitter feed.

Bernie Sanders Supporters Spread Pro-Murder #GUILLOTINE2020 Hashtag Following Campaign Suspension
They aren’t even hiding their true intentions anymore.
Following news of socialist hero Bernie Sanders suspending his campaign for the Democrat nomination for President, some of his most extreme supporters made their voices heard with explicit calls for violence.
As soon as the announcement was made via live-stream, a dedicated segment of his supporters began using the hashtag #GUILLOTINE2020, seemingly advocating for using guillotines to behead their political enemies.
I want Jeff Bezos head in a guillotine. Then Warren Buffett, Bill Gates, Mike Bloomberg, and of course, Donald Trump.
They shut down Bernie's political revolution, the only choice is a real revolution.#GUILLOTINE2020

These sort of posts, which some on the left attempt to downplay by claiming they are nothing more than jokes, have been showing up increasingly in recent years.
Far-left “journalist” Kim Kelly, who was fired from both Vice News and NPR for her extremism, wrote in Teen Vogue about the phenomena around this sort of fetishization of the guillotine, where she acknowledges that many are not joking in their posts:
“On social media, a tone-deaf tweet or Facebook post from any wealthy CEO or out-of-touch politician is invariably met with a sea of guillotine gifs, calls for retribution against predatory billionaires, or otherwise vitriolic responses from people with guillotine in their usernames — and it feels less and less like they’re joking.”
Kelly herself admits to having a guillotine tattoo, and if her writing is any indication, she likely wouldn’t hesitate to use one on her perceived political enemies. She has previously celebrated a militant Antifa cell after one of their members attempted to firebomb an ICE facility in Tacoma, WA. Kelly also created a guide on throwing milkshakes at those she perceives to be fascists while writing for VICE. Of course, the practice of “milkshaking” got world-wide attention following the brutal beating of independent journalist Andy Ngo, which involved the throwing of milkshakes.
Needless to say, the next few months could get extremely violent as supporters of Bernie Sanders continue to let their true intentions know. As Project Veritas exposed, these far-left views are even prevalent in Sander’s campaign, with one paid staffer stating, “Guillotine the rich” while on undercover video.
Even senior Sanders staff are making their more extreme views known, with his national Press Secretary Briahna Joy Gray admitting that the “Democratic” prefix in Democrat Socialism means nothing.
On the plus side, I can drop the “Democratic” from my tweets about why Socialism is good. 😉
