Fox News host Kennedy Montgomery on Monday encouraged viewers to take the law into their own hands when it comes to the protests that have broken out over the killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis.
On Fox News’ Outnumbered program, Montgomery said that “peaceful protesters” had a responsibility to weed out violent actors.
“You’re seeing [protest group Antifa] really capitalize on this,” Montgomery said of the nationwide protests. “They may not make up the majority but they’re hellbent on doing so much damage. And it is heartening to see other protesters sort of shovel them to the police.”
“So if you’re going out and protesting and you’re a peaceful protester, take some zip ties and subdue some of these people and [make] a citizen’s arrest if they are hurting people, if they’re lobbying Molotov cocktails, if they’re setting things on fire, if they’re breaking things and committing crimes then go ahead help them find what they ultimately want, which is apparently arrest.”
“If you see an Antifa person and they have a backpack, go ahead and take it because they don’t believe in private property,” she added. “So what’s theirs is yours.”
Co-host Harris Faulkner seemed surprised by Montgomery’s call to action.
“We don’t want to engage people in trying to physically get involved with anybody else,” Faulkner cautioned. “But I understand what you’re saying, maybe not literally.”
Conservative radio host David Webb agreed with Montgomery.
“Yeah, do take them on,” he replied. “You do have the right and the responsibility of getting rid of the bad elements in your protest.”
“I’m with Kennedy,” Webb said. “We have a citizen responsibility. You want to come to the burbs, I’ve got news for you, there are Americans in the burbs — black, white, left, right, doesn’t matter — who don’t want you there. And it’s up to us to realize cops can’t be everywhere, DOJ can’t be everywhere, law enforcement can’t be everywhere. But responsibly, we can protect our businesses.”

These 7 details from the damning Sharpiegate report show it was a dark omen of Trump’s destructive potential
While it was dismissed by some as an overhyped media obsession, the presidential scandal that has come to be known as "Sharpiegate" was, in fact, an early warning sign of the truly catastrophic potential of Donald Trump.
The story arose out of Hurricane Dorian, which began its deliberate march up toward the East Coast of the United States in late August and early September of 2019. It ravaged the Bahamas, and officials feared the damage it could inflict stateside. But then came a Trump tweet on Sept. 1, and later comments to reporters, in which he warned that Alabama was in the storm's path. He said it was among the states "most likely be hit (much) harder than anticipated."
Florida governor finally releases the true numbers of people hospitalized with coronavirus
Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis finally caved in to pressure to release the actual numbers of coronavirus cases in the state's hospitals.
Until Friday, DeSantis had refused to reveal the true numbers, leaving many in the state unaware of just how bad the cases were. According to the Orlando Sentinel, a whopping 7,000 Floridians are in hospitals hoping they survive the virus.
"The data, which for the first time breaks down the number of people in the hospital with coronavirus, was promised by the state two weeks ago," the report explained.
MSNBC’s Nicolle Wallace asks why Bill Barr is trying to ‘erase Robert Mueller’s investigation’ before November
MSNBC host Nicolle Wallace returned to television Friday night to address what she called outright corruption in the Trump White House after another example of the president trying to escape the consequences of the law.
Wallace began by calling Attorney General William Barr nothing more than Trump's "bouncer."
"He has been intellectually overestimated from day one. He is not a mastermind of anything," said Wallace. "He is Donald Trump's body man."
She cited "well-sourced spin" coming from the White House Friday evening, because there were people that she said were "enlisted" with trying to talk Trump out of commuting Roger Stone's sentence. She anticipated that Barr and White House Counsel Pat Cipollone may huff and puff about the act, but that they won't quit over it. "And we should remember their names forever. They are all accomplices in the greatest corruption of one of the most sacred powers."
