Something terrible is happening in the United States. The precepts of the Constitution which allow everyone to be heard peacefully is being tarnished and Media Ite has written that even Fox News anchor Shannon Bream was unable to do her job because of domestic terrorism.
While trying to cover Donald Trump’s historic SCOTUS choice, D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals Judge Brett Kavanaugh on Monday night, fears of violence shut everything down. The report was supposed to have taken place “from outside the steps of the Supreme Court,” but the threats from protestors to the news crew were too violent for it to happen. She fled and few people could blame her for it, though if she had stood her ground it would have proved a point.
“Very few times I’ve felt threatened while out in the field. The mood here tonight is very volatile,” Bream wrote. “Law enforcement appears to be closing down 1st Street in front of SCOTUS.”
She also tweeted, “Literally had to bail on our live show from #SCOTUS. Moving the show back to the safety of the studio. See y’all at 11p.”
Needless to say, this was never what was meant when the founding fathers crafted the Constitution. The very Pledge of Allegiance implies that everyone, from a very young age, understands that elections are the result of America’s God-given right to free speech.
Everyone is free to say what they wish (in virtually any manner that they desire), but they are not free to conduct themselves as seen here.
Much of this started, at least in current times, with the antics of ANTIFA, Black Lives Matter, and other disruptive groups.
Not enough was done to curb their foolishness during the Obama years, and now, this form of “protest” is considered normal to those who have been doing it for years.
What is being seen is not, of course, “protesting,” but rioting. That means that America is well on her way to becoming a nation that is as dangerous as those countries that have far inferior constructs than the founding document.
If this is not soon understood and changed, what comes afterward is surely going to be even worse, and that helps no one on either side.
Very few times I’ve felt threatened while out in the field. The mood here tonight is very volatile. Law enforcement appears to be closing down 1st Street in front of SCOTUS.
