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.

VIDEO: Raucous Brawl Erupts at Bernie Sanders Rally Over Gun Rights
One man was evidently wearing a ‘Black Guns Matter’ t-shirt.
A raucous brawl erupted live on camera during a Bernie Sanders rally in Colorado in Monday, apparently fueled by a disagreement over gun rights between two Sanders supporters.
Footage of the brawl surfaced Monday night, showing two men aggressively wrestling and crashing into a restricted area of the event in Denver. Sanders’ voice can be heard in the background of the video, moving on with his campaign speech without referring to the fight.

CBS 4 Denver claims to have been sent video documenting the beginning of the altercation. One individual in the fight, who spoke to the local news organization describing his side of the story, was wearing a ‘Black Guns Matter’ t-shirt, intending to display his support of gun rights despite being a progressive Sanders supporter. Another man took offense to the shirt’s supposed slight to the Black Lives Matter, and the disagreement boiled over into a violent incident.
The men weren’t removed from the rally after security stepped in to disrupt the ridiculous brawl. They were instead separated for the duration of the Sanders rally.
It’s somewhat pathetic that a white Sanders supporter feels it incumbent on himself to assault an individual who is black for wearing a ‘Black Guns Matter’ t-shirt, if the other participant’s account is to be believed. It’s even more concerning for Sanders’ political movement that some among his supporters can’t tolerate simple political disagreements over commonly supported issues such as gun rights, going to the lengths of starting a violent altercation at a campaign event.
All in all a poor look for Sanders supporters, to have a fight break out between two of their own over an utterly childish political disagreement. If you don’t like someone’s mildly provocative T-shirt, just look somewhere else.
