This is EXACTLY what Antifa’s DISGUSTING attack on Tucker’s family home was. A HATE CRIME.
Protestors have a message. Protestors look for specific change. These people did none of that. These people were simply trying to instill fear in Tucker and his family. Or worse… Who KNOWS what they would have done if the succeeded in busting down those doors.
These aren’t protestors. These are terrorists.
Fortunately, DC law enforcement is taking their crime as seriously as it ought to be.
D.C. police are investigating a left-wing mob’s protest at Fox News host Tucker Carlson’s house Wednesday evening as a ‘suspected hate crime’ with ‘anti-political’ motivations, according to a police report obtained by The Daily Caller News Foundation.
This disgusting behavior CANNOT be tolerated or ignored. This is a BIG DEAL – and I hope the punishment lets others know they should THINK before they make the same mistake.
The mob, organized by the Antifa group Smash Racism DC, posted Carlson’s Washington address online and sent a mob to his house calling him a “racist scumbag” and demanded he flee the city. Carlson, a co-founder of The Daily Caller News Foundation, was at the Fox News studio when the mob arrived at his home.
A police report indicated that the incident was a “suspected hate crime” and that the case was still open. One box labeled “hate bias/motivation” was filled in “anti-political.”
Tucker’s wife got the worst of it. As I said before, I can’t even IMAGINE, as a mother, what she’s thinking right now:
Carlson’s wife, who was home alone at the time, reported that she heard loud banging and pounding on her front door, according to the police report. She called the police after witnessing a large group of people that had a bull horn and were chanting loudly outside the house.
“Someone started throwing himself against the front door and actually cracked the front door,” Carlson told The Washington Post.
Their four young children were not home at the time, but it’s not like they KNEW that. They probably HOPED they were. Can you even imagine?!
The police “arrived on the scene and found a group of approximately 20 people,” the report read. “It was discovered that unknown persons spray painted an anarchy symbol on the driveway. There were also signs left on the vehicles parked in the driveway as well as a sign left on the front door of the home.”
The vandalism to Carlson’s vehicles and front door made reference to Carlson’s political affiliation, according to the report.The police also seized six hand-written posters from the scene, according to the report. Video of the incident shows the protesters carrying signs and changing, “Tucker Carlson we will fight! We know where you sleep at night!”
“Tonight you’re reminded that we have a voice,” Smash Racism DC wrote in a now-deleted Tweet. “Tonight, we remind you that you are not safe either.”
This WAS a hate crime against Conservatives. It’s that simple.
Shockingly, no one was arrested at the scene.
Carlson said he is now worried about leaving his family at home alone in the aftermath of the incident.
“It wasn’t a protest. It was a threat,” Carlson told The Post.
