Peter Kursinow appeared on Fox’s “Tucker Carlson Tonight” and disclosed that the United States Commission on Civil Rights voted against condemning Antifa violence in Charlottesville, Virginia. The Commission did vote unilaterally to condemn the violence of white supremacists.

He told Carlson that of the panel of six, only two, including himself, voted on a proposal to “condemn violence by anyone, including violence by so-called Antifa demonstrators," as Gail Heriot said, according to the Washington Examiner.

Heriot was the member of the commission who seconded Kursinow’s proposal. Both are Republicans; the other four members are Democrats.

The commission was created in 1957 by the Civil Rights Act and is meant to be an "independent, bipartisan, fact-finding federal agency," according to their website.

Chris Salcedo theorized on today’s “Chris Salcedo Show” that civil rights are only sacrosanct to Democrats if one is taking up a left wing position, adding that if people have to partake in violence to institute their politics, “People of good will should condemn you.”
