A mob associated with left-wing Antifa activists converged on the Washington, D.C. home of Fox News host Tucker Carlson on Wednesday night while chanting “racist scumbag, leave town!” and warning on social media Carlson and his family “were not safe.”
“BREAKING. Activists ring doorbell, hold protest at the Washington D.C. area home of @TuckerCarlson, racist, sexist, bigoted FOX News personality. So far no one has opened the door,” read a since-removed tweet by “Smash Racism DC,” which associates itself with Antifa.
Shortly after midnight, the “Smash Racism DC” Twitter account had been suspended.
This is the same group that took credit for chasing Sen. Ted Cruz (D-Texas) and his wife out of a Washington, D.C. restaurant in September.
According to FoxNews.com, Carlson himself was not home at the time. But the host said his wife, Susie, was home alone “and heard the commotion from the kitchen.”
She reportedly called police and locked herself into a pantry until law enforcement arrived a short time later.
Carlson told FoxNews.com that “activists rang his doorbell, broke his oak door and one protester was apparently caught on security video mentioning a pipe bomb.”
This is the same group that chased Ted Cruz and his wife out of a restaurant during the Kavanaugh hearings.
