Mob chants hot outside Tucker Carlsons DC home


A self-taught left Antifa group uploaded videos of a mob outside Washington, D.C., home of Fox News, Tucker Carlson Wednesday night, chanting, "Tucker Carlson, we will fight. We know where you sleep at night."

The now deleted video was published on social media by Smash Racism, D.C. The same group made headlines in September after activists confronted Sen.Ted Cruz, R-Texas and his wife in a restaurant under Brett Kavanaugh's Supreme Court's confirmation proceedings.

The group wrote on Facebook that Carlson spreads "fear in our homes", and said it would even score.

"Every night, we remind us that we are not safe. Tonight, we remind you that you are not sure either," wrote the group. They also chanted, "Racist s — bag, leave the city."

The post was removed later.

Carlson, host of "Tucker Carlson tonight", was not home at the time. He said that his wife Susie was alone at home and heard the insurgency from the kitchen. She called the police and locked into a pantry, he said. His brother, who lives nearby, arrived at the same time as law enforcement.

The hosts said activists called their doorbell, broke their doorstep and a protector was apparently caught on security video that mentioned a pipe bomb.

The D.C. police did not respond immediately to a Fox News mail early Thursday.

Carlson said he was at Fox News Office in Washington who worked at his initial monologue when his neighbors told him about the insurgency outside his home. His 22-year-old wife did not contact him because she did not want to distract him before he went to the air, he said.

The group eventually spread. It was unclear if there were any arrests. Carlson said the group wrote online home addresses to his brother and his former colleague roommate, Neil Patel, who participated in Daily Caller with Carlson.

Carlson said he is used to being confronted in general and has no interest in playing the role of victim, but he said that his wife and four children would not have to be subjected to aggression while at home.

"Here's the problem, I have four children," he said by phone. "I never thought twice about leaving them home alone, but this is the reaction because this group does not like my TV show."

Twitter has deleted a photo of Carlson's home address that was posted by the group. Smash Racism DC's account was interrupted early Thursday.

Brit Hume, a Fox News commentator, took on Twitter to quit the protest as "revolting and scary."
