(ConservativeHub.com) – The last several months have been difficult for Americans, with Antifa members demonstrating and rioting in Democrat-led cities in the wake of George Floyd’s death on May 25, 2020. They have targeted local and state-level officials for months, even going after Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) and his wife as they left the Republican National Convention in August 2020.
Family members of Sen. Josh Hawley (R-MO) became the latest victims of an Antifa mob on January 4, 2021, when they surrounded Hawley’s Washington D.C. home while he was out of town.
Antifa members reportedly threatened and harassed his wife and newborn child over his decision to challenge Electoral College ballots during Wednesday’s joint session of Congress. According to Hawley, the leftist activists vandalized his home, pounded on the front door, and yelled at his wife and daughter using a bullhorn.
If the Antifa scumbags can terrorize my family, they can do it to any family in America. People should be safe in their own homes. And we’re not going to sit back and take it pic.twitter.com/umzOMBiA6l

Speaking to Fox News host Laura Ingraham, he related that the Antifa crowd claimed they were holding a candlelight vigil. However, the video shows that wasn’t the case.
BREAKING: Former FBI agent on the ground at U.S. Capitol just texted me and confirmed that at least 1 "bus load" of Antifa thugs infiltrated peaceful Trump demonstrators as part of a false Trump flag ops

As Sen. Hawley noted in his tweet, no one is safe from these homegrown terrorists. Sadly, his prediction appears to have become all too real as reports of Antifa members posing as supporters of President Donald Trump and attacking the US Capitol on January 6 show.
