Monday morning, a group of Antifa protestors in Philadelphia verbally and physically harassed conservative commentators Candace Owens and Charlie Kirk while the two were eating breakfast at a cafe.
In response, Republican Party of Pennsylvania Chairman Val DiGiorgio, made the following statement:
“The physical and verbal harassment of two law-abiding, private citizens over their political views is outrageous and beyond the pale of reasonable political discourse.
“I would like to thank the Philadelphia Police Department for intervening to protect Candace Owens and Charlie Kirk during what must have been a dangerous and unsettling situation.
“Martin Luther King Jr. once said, ‘History will record that the greatest tragedy of this period of social transition was not the strident clamor of the bad people, but the appalling silence of the good people.’
“As divisive political rhetoric from the radical left turns into violence, I call on Pennsylvania Democratic Party and all Democrats of character to denounce this—and any—activity that seeks to replace reasoned debate with violence and intimidation.
“Should they remain silent, they remain complicit with a group that seeks to obstruct, destruct, and tear this country apart.”
