Antifa protest at Tucker Carlson's home stirs outrage

Tucker Carlson speaks onstage during Politicon 2018 at Los Angeles Convention Center

The protesters, organized by Smash Racism DC, yelled, "Tucker Carlson, we will fight! We know where you sleep at night" outside of Carlson's Washington home, according to Fox News.

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

Smash Racism D.C. posted video of the incident and later had its Twitter account suspended.

"The DC reported the group wrote on Twitter: "Tucker Carlson, you can not hide from the people you hurt with your rhetoric, your lies, and your hate", with the hashtag '#KnockKnockTucker'".

Earlier today, Yglesias tweeted, "I honestly can not empathize with Tucker Carlson's wife at all - I agree that protesting at her house was tactically unwise and shouldn't be done - but I am utterly unable to identify with her plight at any level". It was a threat. Where Nazis are always wondering: "'Is 2day the day they come 4 me?'" Protesters screamed and yelled at the political couple until they ostensibly left the restaurant.

The Post also reported that the Fox News host's "wife, thinking it was a home invasion, locked herself in the pantry and called 911, Carlson said".

"Here's the problem: I have four children", Fox News quoted Carlson as saying. "I can't have my kids stay at home alone now".

But the conversation turned back to Kilmeade who shared his own theory without evidence that the protestors/violent mob outside Carlson's home were "getting a paycheck" to do that.

"I think Tucker is a bad influence on modern America but that doesn't justify harassing him at home".

Yglesias initially responded to Slate writer Will Saletan, who had criticized the group's actions by writing on Twitter, "One way to become the fascists is to think you can do anything in the name of anti-fascism".

"The incident that took place at Tucker's home last night was reprehensible", a joint statement from Fox News CEO Suzanne Scott and President Jay Wallace read.

NBC on-air personality Megyn Kelly, formerly a leading Fox News personality, tweeted: "This has to stop. What sense was there in terrorizing her family?" he wrote. "Go high, not low".

"Get a permit for a protest outside Carlson's office if you want", Stelter wrote. "If theyre talking about pipe bombs. how do you live like that?"

"I probably wont open another package sent to our house from now on", Carlson said.

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. "It was a threat", Carlson continued.

"I don't feel threatened physically".
