Sen. Josh Hawley rips ‘Antifa scumbags’ who ‘threatened’ his home with only his wife and newborn daughter inside. The protesters called it a ‘peaceful vigil.’

A group of leftist protesters showed up at Missouri Republican Sen. Josh Hawley’s Washington, D.C.-area home Monday night while only his wife and newborn daughter were there, shouting through bullhorns and allegedly banging on the door in protest of his recent decision to challenge the presidential election results.

Hawley, who was away from his family and back in Missouri at the time, has drawn harsh criticism since becoming the first senator to announce plans to object to the Electoral College certification when electors meet on Jan. 6.

As any young father feeling helpless to defend his family would be, he was incensed over the incident and denounced the “Antifa scumbags” on Twitter late Monday night for causing his family to feel threatened.

“They screamed threats, vandalized, and tried to pound open our door,” he said. “Let me be clear: My family & I will not be intimidated by leftwing violence.”

At least one of Hawley’s neighbors shared the sentiment, as video shows him approaching the group and demanding to know why they were “disturbing our neighborhood and scaring our children.”

A peaceful vigil?

However, in conversation with the Washington Post, the group, known as ShutDownDC, characterized their demonstration much differently.

It was nothing more than a “peaceful vigil,” the activists argued in a Post write-up that described the night’s activities like this: “On the sidewalk in a Northern Virginia suburb, a group of 15 people chanted while holding candles and signs saying, ‘Protect democracy.'”

“This was not threatening behavior,” one ShutDownDC organizer, Patrick Young, told the Post. “This is people engaging in democracy and engaging in civil discourse … This was a pretty tame and peaceful visit to his house.”

A 50-minute long video of the events posted on YouTube by the group titled, “Vigil For Democracy,” shows protesters loudly shouting and chanting outside Hawley’s home and at least one point approaching the door to leave a copy of the U.S. Constitution.

Video shows Virginia police present at the scene, but it was not immediately clear if any action was taken against the protesters except that one officer asked them to quiet down until her supervisor arrived.

Hawley responds

Later, in response to the group’s press release on the demonstration, Hawley tweeted, “Now ‘vigil’ means screaming threats through bullhorns, vandalizing property, pounding on the doors of homes and terrorizing innocent people and children.”

Then on Tuesday morning, after the Post article was published, Hawley hit the group again on Twitter, slamming their “outright lies.”

The Antifa group “now describe themselves as sweet angels,” he said. “BS. You screamed through bullhorns, shouted down my wife when she asked you to leave, vandalized property, pounded on our door, and terrorized neighbors.”

  1. WHERE IS HIS NEIGHBORS, THEY ALL SHOULD HAVE ARMED THEMSELVES AND DROVE OFF OR SHOT THE ONE THAT DID NOT LEAVE. FOLKS IS IS GOING TO COME TO THIS. NO ONE WILL THREATEN OR SCARE A WOMAN WITH A YOUNG BABY IN MY NEIGHBORHOOD IF I KNOW ABOUT IT.

  2. I am very glad that Senator Hawley has the guts to announce that he will object to the fraudulent voting reports. I know the Senators from Illinois won’t do it, even though Dick Durbin is bragging about been the “senior member” of the Senate.

  3. Josh….secure her a C.C.P. and purchase her a 9 mm to protect herself…..on the porch beating on the door should be followed by a warning…..and in my book after that boring holes in the front door from the inside is acceptable.

  4. Peaceful vigil huh? Much like the peaceful protesters that assaulted, looted and burned stores and buildings. They should be squashed like the cockroaches they are! And it will eventually happen when they terrorize the wrong family!!

  5. If the police are such big cowards kill them along with the terrorist. Since when are terrorist allowed to come on to private property and torment a young woman and her new born infant. KILL ALL THE DEMOCRATS. EVERY EVIL ONE OF THEM. #uck the police. If your so afraid of your Nazi bosses we no longer need you. I reverse my support Go crawling back to your #ucking Nazi animals. Not enough to stop you. It’s Tim the cops shed the Nazi hats and help Americans.

  6. Dallas you are so right. If they can not enforce the laws of the state and the country it is time they quit. They are supposed to ” Serve and Protect” the people not the terrorist. It is time the crocked democrats and rhinos in Washington where arrested for breaking their oath and going against the constitution. That is called ” treason” and should be dealt with as such. A new civil war is coming. The blood bath is just around the corner. Lock-n-Load.

  7. These POS’s committed Simple Assault by threatening them and having the mean to do so and they SHOULD have been ARRESTED for that AND Disorderly Conduct! I am ashamed of the MPD and it looks like they have been taken over by the Left. As a retired LEO I cannot and will not support them, especially after attacking those who are attending the Rally in support of President Trump and not arresting the BLM female who attacked and beat a young female who is attending this rally.
