In yet another demonstration of just how unhinged and disturbing the left’s most extreme groups are getting, an antifa-aligned group called Smash Racism D.C. gathered outside the Washington home of Tucker Carlson on Wednesday night, shouting slogans, vandalizing the property, and posting private information to Twitter all the while. The group, already known for forcing Sen. Ted Cruz out of a D.C. restaurant during the Kavanaugh hearings, reportedly terrified Carlson’s wife, who was in the home alone while her husband was at the Fox News studios.
From The Daily Caller:
At least one of the protesters went all the way up to Carlson’s front door, where they left a sign with his family’s home address written on it and rang his doorbell.
Video the group, “Smash Racism DC,” posted to Twitter shows one of the mob’s ringleaders leading the crowd in chants of “racist scumbag, leave town!” and “Tucker Carlson, we will fight! We know where you sleep at night!”
“No borders! No walls! No USA at all!” the protesters chanted in another video posted to Twitter.
“Tucker Carlson, you cannot hide from the people you hurt with your rhetoric, your lies, and your hate,” the group wrote on Twitter, adding the hashtag “#KnockKnockTucker.”
In comments to Fox News, Carlson said that while he was plenty tough enough to handle himself around left-wing aggressors, he did not appreciate the idea that these nuts would endanger his family.
“Here’s the problem, I have four children,” he said. “I never thought twice about leaving them home alone, but this is the reaction because this group doesn’t like my TV show.”
Megyn Kelly, who was Carlson’s colleague when she was at Fox News, tweeted that the mob aggression was unacceptable.
“This has to stop,” she wrote. “Who are we? What are we becoming? Tucker Carlson is tough and can handle a lot, but her does not deserve this. His family does not deserve this. It’s stomach-turning.”
We do have to commend Twitter for actually taking action in this instance. They suspended Smash Racism’s account and took down the videos, which included doxxing information about Carlson’s address and the address of his Daily Caller co-founder. It’s nice to see that the site will actually punish bad leftist behavior, if said behavior is bad enough. We were beginning to wonder.
Sadly, we haven’t seen a single Democrat condemn this mob for their actions.
