One Day After Biden’s Independence Hall Speech, This Happened to a Trump Supporter

Who can forget the eerie view of President Joe Biden standing in front of Independence Hall with red backlights and marines flanking him? In that speech that was supposed to be non-political, the president torched the supporters of former President Donald Trump calling them a threat to democracy.

If that whole scene bothered you, wait until you hear this. One day after that threatening speech that warned the MAGA movement was such a serious threat, three FBI agents showed up at the door of a Trump supporter based on an anonymous tip that she attended the January 6 Capitol riot. 

Lisa Gallagher of New Jersey talked with Fox News’s “Tucker Carlson Tonight.” She said that her daughter woke her up early in the morning to tell her that three armed agents were outside asking for her. 

“Even though I knew I had done nothing wrong, after seeing Joe Biden’s speech the night before I thought ‘Oh my God, this is political,’ and I was frightened, I truly thought they could take me out of here in handcuffs,” she said.

Tucker Carlson made it clear that Gallagher was not even at the Capitol riot and she wasn’t even in D.C. on that day. She certainly had not been accused of any crime. She had her husband had to pull out old calendars to substantiate where they were on January 6th. 

“Imagine armed FBI agents showing up at your house because you supported Trump on Facebook and demanding records of your whereabouts on a date nearly two years ago and of course, the FBI already knew that Lisa Gallagher was not there because they have sophisticated facial recognition software, so they were never planning to arrest her,” Carlson said. “The point (and this is a theme in every authoritarian regime), the point was to use government agents to intimidate enemies of the regime on the basis of an anonymous tip.”

Carlson wondered aloud on his program how many other people were experiencing the same kind of treatment. 

“This is Soviet and there’s no other word for it,” he said.
