Son of Democratic congresswoman arrested at Antifa riot

 January 25, 2023

While Americans were shocked to see Antifa rioters go on a rampage in Atlanta this past weekend, it wasn't the only city to see chaos break out.

Rioters also caused violence in Boston on Saturday as well. According to Breitbart, among those to be quickly bailed out of jail was the son of a Democratic congresswoman.

Man faces slew of charges

Twenty-three-year-old Jared Dowell was arrested on charges of assaulting a police officer as well as vandalizing a monument.

Other charges that Dowell stands accused of include tagging property and resisting arrest. He was released on $500 bail and ordered to stay away from the Boston Common area.

The disturbance came as a response to last week's shooting of an Antifa militant in Georgia who opened fire on police officers.

Dowell identifies as a woman named "Riley" and is the son of Democratic House Minority Whip Katherine Clark. The Massachusetts congresswoman named Dowell as her "daughter" in a subsequent press release.

Rep. Clark says arrest represents "a very difficult time"

"Last night, my daughter was arrested in Boston, Massachusetts. I love Riley, and this is a very difficult time in the cycle of joy and pain in parenting," Clark was quoted as saying.

"This will be evaluated by the legal system, and I am confident in that process," the left-wing lawmaker went on to insist.

During Monday's episode of his evening show, Fox News host Tucker Carlson contrasted the privileged circumstances of people like Dowell with those who participated in the January 6 riot on Capitol Hill.

Carlson: January 6 defendants are "actual working people"

After pointing out that Rep. Clarke has purchased a $1 million oceanfront home despite professing to be worried about the impending effects of climate change, Carlson noted that the typical backgrounds of January 6 defendants are far more humble.

"Well, have you ever checked the percentage of January 6 defendants who've experienced a personal bankruptcy? Much higher than average," he said.

"These were actual working class people, deeply frustrated, completely out of options and unheard by everyone in Washington," he continued, adding, "It's not an excuse for the vandalism some of them committed."

"But it tells you it's a very different group of people. They didn't go to Middlebury or some other liberal arts madrassa. They're actual working people," Carlson insisted.

" A free people [claim] their rights, as derived from the laws of nature."
