Antifa protest at Tucker Carlson's home stirs outrage

Antifa protest at Tucker Carlson's home stirs outrage

None of the couple's four children was at home of the time of the disturbance; Carlson's wife, Susie, was alone.

A protest outside the Washington, D.C. home of Fox News host Tucker Carlson has lead to a criminal investigation from police.

The group's video of the protest on Twitter has since been deleted - and Twitter suspended the group's account. "We know where you sleep at night", broke a door, and mentioned a pipe bomb, according to USA Today.

In videos uploaded to Twitter by the group on Wednesday, participants were heard saying "Tucker Carlson, we will fight!"

The size of the group is unclear. But his wife was there and quickly locked herself in the pantry and called 911.

"Carlson, host of 'Tucker Carlson Tonight, ' was not home at the time".

After far-left protesters harassed Fox News host Tucker Carlson's family in an incident now being investigated as a potential hate crime, a writer defended the intimidation - and then ate his words.

CNN's Brian Stelter wrote in his newsletter Wednesday, "You can love or hate Fox's Tucker Carlson, but we should all be able to see that this protester behavior is wrong". "They weren't protesting anything specific that I had said".

Separately, Israel's public radio said contact had been lost with three Israeli tourists in southern Jordan. Rescuers continued the search for missing people around the Wala reservoir in central Jordan on Saturday.

Smash Racism DC, the group that first posted the video on Twitter, claimed responsibility for chasing Sen. The same organization made headlines weeks ago after confronting Senator Ted Cruz and his wife at a local restaurant.

Lt. Jon Pongratz of the Metropolitan Police Department said that about 20 people had formed a mob at Carlson's home. "They weren't asking me to change anything", Carlson told the Post.

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".

In addition, Fox News issued a statement slamming the protesters - while also making a plea for civility and tolerance.

"Fighting Tucker Carlson's ideas is an American right".

This reprehensible and cowardly act has not only launched a police investigation in the D.C. area in which Carlson and his family reside but has also spawned a universal and bipartisan outcry of condemnation from media figures from across the political spectrum.

"Who are we? What are we becoming?".
