On Monday’s broadcast of Fox News Channel’s “The Five,” “Red Eye” host Tom Shillue sounded off on the controversial Black Lives Matter movement after the killing of Harris County, TX deputy Darren Goforth.
Shillue argued it was time to act aggressively against the Black Lives Matter movement and suggested they are creating a threat to public safety.
“[I] think it’s shut-it-down time,” Shillue said. “I think it’s ridiculous. And I think that this is criminal stuff. These organizations — it’s not a civil rights movement. Call it what it is. It’s a lie from the beginning. I’m going to put a lot of responsibility, not just a little bit attributed. This is a violent group. I think it’s time to shut them down.”
“And the federal government’s not going to do it,” he continued. “I think the state governors should go in when there’s protests — shut them down. People are drunk on rights in this country. These people are violent. It’s horrible, and I think they should go in there and do whatever they have to. I don’t know if it’s RICO laws or something. I think it’s time to arrest these leaders because they’re threatening people and they’re causing violence.”
