Chris Wallace Slams Colleagues For Defending Armed Vigilantes In Kenosha

Fox News anchor Chris Wallace decided to call out panelists who were making excuses for the armed vigilantes patrolling the streets of Kenosha, Wisconsin.

While speaking about the killing that took place in the streets of Kenosha by a gun-loving Trump supporter, guest Katie Pavlich claimed that it was understandable that private citizens would take to the streets and take the law into their own hands.

“When you have no police around to defend businesses and people being attacked and their livelihood burned to the ground, then there is a void that is filled,” she said.

Wallace, unconvinced with her logic, objected to this reasoning.

“I’ve got to push back on something we said at the end of this segment,” he said. “Because there seems to be the indication that, somehow, vigilante justice was understandable or justified by the lack of sufficient police action.”

That’s when other Fox News panelists tried to interrupt Wallace and claimed they weren’t actually supporting armed vigilantes, but Wallace insisted on finishing his point.

“Just as it’s fair to say that rioting and looting is a completely inappropriate response to George Floyd and Jacob Blake, vigilante justice is a completely inappropriate response to the rioting in the streets,” he said. “There is no justification for what happened in Kenosha.”
