Far-Left Group Appears at Tucker Carlson’s House, Harasses Family

Far-Left Group Appears at Tucker Carlson’s House, Harasses Family

A brief video posted on social media by a group calling itself "Smash Racism DC" shows people standing outside a darkened home and chanting, "Tucker Carlson, we will fight".

A mob was sent to the political news host's home after his address was posted online by Smash Racism D.C.

Carlson said that he was at the Fox News office in Washington when neighbors texted him about the commotion.

The protesters were doubling down and defending their protest after the ensuing backlash.

The protest was organized by Smash Racism DC.

"It's just a reminder of what a really nice country it is", he added before commenting on how his wife hid in the pantry during the incident.

Carlson was taping his show at the time of the incident, but his wife was home and called 911 when she heard banging on the front door.

Protesters thronged Tucker Carlson's Washington, DC, family home on Wednesday night chanting insults and threats while demanding he move from the city.

Some defended the Antifa actions, including liberal journalist Matt Yglesias, who said he "cannot empathize" with Carlson's wife, tweeting, "I think the idea behind terrorizing his family, like it or not as a strategy, is to make them feel some of the fear that the victims of MAGA-inspired violence feel thanks to the non-stop racial incitement coming from Tucker, Trump, etc". Where Nazis are always wondering: "'Is 2day the day they come 4 me?'" They werent protesting a policy or advocating for legislation.

Another video included "Racist scumbag, leave town!" The couple's four children were not there.

"How can you go out for dinner and leave the kids at home at this point?" he said.

The protesters also published Carlson's home address.

"I think Tucker is a bad influence on modern America but that doesnt justify harassing him at home", Boot tweeted.

NBC on-air personality Megyn Kelly, formerly a leading Fox News personality, tweeted: "This has to stop". His family does not deserve this.

CNN's Brian Stelter condemned the protest in his nightly newsletter, images of which he shared on Twitter.

While he is no stranger to threats, Carlson said this time things went "too far".

Wednesday nights events are the latest in a spate of harassment aimed at prominent politicians and media outlets, ranging from being heckled in restaurants to receiving packages containing explosive devices.
