D.C. police are now investigating the Antifa mob that surrounded Tucker Carlson’s house and threatened his family as a “suspected hate crime,” according to the police report. Now new details of their actions are coming out in the report.
Carlson was at the studio, but his wife was home when the mob arrived and started shouting threats. Fortunately, his four children weren’t there.
From Daily Caller:
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 bullhorn 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.
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.
Video showed the Antifa mob chanting, “Tucker Carlson we will fight! We know where you sleep at night!” Carlson said that one woman also mentioned they should bring a “pipe bomb.” The group also doxed his home, his brother’s home and his friend’s home and posted the information from the group’s Twitter account.
“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.”
The group’s Twitter account was suspended shortly after midnight on Thursday.
No arrests were made after police arrived on the scene, though there is an active investigation into the incident, Metropolitan Police Department spokeswoman Alaina Gertz told TheDCNF.
“MPD has allocated more patrols in the area as a response to this incident,” she told TheDCNF.
She declined to comment further. It is unclear why no one was arrested.
D.C. is one of the few places that makes a crime based on someone’s political belief a hate crime. That means that the people involved may face enhanced penalties if prosecuted.
The group Smash Racism DC was co-founded by Mike Isaacson, who has appeared on Tucker Carlson’s show in the past. While Isaacson said that he hadn’t worked with the group in three years, he said that he supported the actions of his “comrades” and he claimed that they had info to dox other “far-right personalities.” He used to teach at the John Jay College of Criminal Justice but after his posts about promoting political violence and laughing about dead cops were found.
When he appeared on Carlson’s show, he justified political violence but said he would never commit violence against Carlson.
“It wasn’t a protest. It was a threat,” Carlson told The Post.
“They weren’t protesting anything specific that I had said,” he said. “They weren’t asking me to change anything. They weren’t protesting a policy or advocating for legislation. … They were threatening me and my family and telling me to leave my own neighborhood in the city that I grew up in.”
