Following the Black Lives Matter riots that saw businesses burned to the ground, billions in damages, and cops targeted for violence, the movement was promoted by the Democratic Party. Not only that, during the 2020 election, Joe Biden harped on the importance of the BLM movement and warned about the supposed white supremacy that was spreading throughout the country. That narrative has played out for the past few years thanks to the results of the 2020 election and the riot that happened on January 6th. Considered to be a domestic terrorist attack on democracy, the Democrats have sought to vilify the protesters by creating the January 6th committee ran by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and RINOs like Liz Cheney. Not only has the committee attacked protesters, but now they have set their attention to Peter Navarro.
Who exactly is Navarro? According to Fox News’ Tucker Carlson, “Peter Navarro is the picture of a law abiding American citizen. He’s a 72 year old retired Business School professor. He’s got a PhD in economics from Harvard University. His most recent job was extremely white collar. He served as the White House trade adviser in the last presidential administration. Famous for his tough stance on China. He’s never been charged with a crime. He’s never trafficked fentanyl, for example, from Mexico. In fact, his hobby is yoga and riding his bicycle. In short, Peter Navarro does not seem like a criminal, much less a danger to this nation.”
Although an upstanding citizen, in the video above, the host admitted, “Last Friday, federal agents arrested Peter Navarro at Reagan National Airport in Washington. They did not call his lawyer as is customary in cases like this. They didn’t even come to his house, which as it happens is just feet from the FBI building. They could have walked but they didn’t. Instead, they took down Peter Navarro in public as you would a fugitive terror mastermind so everyone could see it and learn the lesson they were sending.”
Knowing that agents arresting someone like Navarro sounds crazy, Carlson noted why. “The point of the exercise is preventing Donald Trump from running for president again. So in the service of that goal, Pelosi and Liz Cheney demanded that Peter Navarro surrender records of his private conversations with his former boss President Donald Trump. And when he refused to do that, Congress voted to hold him in contempt. And then Merrick Garland’s Justice Department filed criminal charges against Peter Navarro.”
Also showing the immense double standard in D.C. right now, Carlson concluded, “If you were Tony Podesta and you work for the Democratic Party, you’re totally fine. Nothing you do is gonna get you in trouble. And you know it. If you’re Roger Stone, you’ve done nothing wrong at all, but you’ve given the finger to the Democratic Party. They show up at your house with guns. That’s the norm the Attorney General is upholding. Serve the Democratic Party, and you will be rewarded, even if you’re a felon. And almost exactly the moment the DOJ was putting Peter Navarro in shackles, the DOJ was also dropping the most serious charges against the two left wing lawyers who tried to incinerate cops, burn them to death in their patrol cars during the BLM riots.”
