A CALL FOR CIVILITY: "As progressives become more authoritarian, they seem more convinced than ever that they're fighting actual Nazis, rather than fellow Americans with relatively mild political differences. The more they accuse the administration of extremism, the more extreme they become. Once you decide that the people you disagree with are Nazis, everything's allowed. Why wouldn't you threaten them in restaurants? Or burn their houses down? This could end in tragedy." – Tucker Carlson, on "Tucker Carlson Tonight," saying the Left is showing that it no longer believes its political foes have the same Constitutional rights. WATCH
