Antifa protesters show up at Tucker Carlson’s home (Update: Group deletes videos)

See this original article here

Here we go again. An Antifa group in Washington, DC has decided to protest Tucker Carlson by showing up at his house at night with a bullhorn. From the Hollywood Reporter:

An anti-fascist group called Smash Racism DC announced the protest in a video posted late Wednesday: “BREAKING. Activists ring doorbell, hold protest at the Washington DC area home of @TuckerCarlson, racist, sexist, bigoted FOX News personality. So far no one has opened the door.”

“Tucker Carlson, we will fight!” the protesters chanted. “We know where you sleep at night!”

Carlson, one of the network’s biggest stars, has previously been targeted by activists. In a podcast last month, the host said he can’t dine out at restaurants anymore (except for one) because people keep yelling obscenities at him.

This is the same group that drove Sen. Ted Cruz and his wife out of a restaurant in September. You can’t actually see any faces here so I have no idea if it’s the same individuals, but the video is posted on the same Twitter account.

Some of these chants are so on the nose I have to wonder if these people are just trying to get themselves on television: “No borders! No walls! No USA at all!”

“No borders! No walls! No USA at all!”

This is what we think of your racist rhetoric and fearmongering toward immigrants, @TuckerCarlson.#KnockKnockTucker pic.twitter.com/2KHHPzQGkx

Here’s the last one (so far):

Tucker Carlson has been spewing nonstop hate and lies about he migrant caravan. He also has close ties to white supremacists: https://t.co/jMbQJk3o6D

Clearly, this is supposed to be threatening. Chanting, “we know where you sleep at night” is an implied threat from a group that openly embraces the use of vandalism, arson, and violence to achieve political ends. I doubt Tucker Carlson would be frightened even if he were home, but according to his Wikipedia page he has four kids. Harassing someone’s kids like this should really be off limits to decent human beings, but it’s Antifa so…

It helps that the turnout here isn’t very impressive. Are there are even ten of them? This act definitely worked better in a small restaurant where a few people shouting seemed really loud and obnoxious. Out on the sidewalk at night, it’s just lame. But again, I don’t know how old Carlson’s kids are and if they’re home feeling threatened by this. I hope not.

I guess Don Lemon will need to adjust his defense of Antifa. His previous take was that Ted Cruz “signed up for” harassment of the kind he experienced in the restaurant when he ran for office. But Tucker Carlson never ran for office. So I wonder what excuse Lemon will use this time. The revolution always eats its own, Don. Eventually, they’ll show up at your house too.

Update: It looks like Twitter removed some of the Antifa account’s tweets and maybe encouraged them to remove all of the videos of them harassing Tucker Carlson.

Twitter started pulling some of @SmashRacismDC ‘s tweets — starting with one listing Tucker and his family’s home address — after we reached out to them but as of now the group’s account hasn’t been suspended. And they’ve done this repeatedly https://t.co/MlHSxRQ6IQ

Here’s one of the clips. Not sure how long this will stay up:

Here’s another one:

A Leftist Antifa mob is currently outside of @TuckerCarlson’s home shouting “racist scumbag leave town” and “we know where you sleep at night, we will fight.” Tucker Carlson has 4 children. They could be terrorizing his children for life right now. pic.twitter.com/ti6plVDzGW
