Gutfeld made the remarks on the Fox show "The Five" during a discussion of the shooting of two police officers during a protest in the racially troubled city.
"We're all being preyed on by infiltrators — basically a roving band of minstrels, these radicals that move from protest to protest," Gutfeld said.
"They were there at Occupy Wall Street; they show up at everything," he said. "And what they do is they see a protest against Ferguson as a conduit for revolution. You heard the phrase 'revolution.' That's what this is about."
"This is something that is enduring," he said. "It had started in the late 1960s, in the 1970s, and it morphs, it gets more and more radicalized as it festers like a disease."
