Historian Victor Davis Hanson told Fox News host Tucker Carlson Tuesday that the United States no longer had the rule of law and was in a “revolutionary period.”
“I hesitate to say this, we’re not in a society ruled by law,” Hanson, a senior fellow with the Hoover Institution at Stanford University, said on “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” referring to attacks on pro-life groups which he argued have largely gone unpunished.
“We’re in a revolutionary period like 18th century France or 1920s Russia where the law is fluid and it’s whatever the power to be says it is.”
Multiple crisis pregnancy centers, churches and pro-life groups have been attacked since the leak of a Supreme Court opinion indicating the court is likely to overturn Roe v. Wade.
Republicans have criticized the Biden administration over alleged inaction with regards to the attacks and the attempted assassination of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh by a man who targeted the justice over potential Supreme Court rulings on abortion and gun rights.
Hanson predicted left-wing violence could increase if non-enforcement of laws continued.
“If we put graffiti on a person’s office or burn it, what’s the next thing?” Hanson asked.
Hanson cited investigations and prosecutions targeting James O’Keefe of Project Veritas and former Trump aides Peter Navarro and Steve Bannon, contrasting it to the reaction to Eric Holder defying congressional subpoenas during the Obama administration.
“The message the left wants to send is, you better be careful because the government is on our side and not on your side,” Hanson said.
