A large group of protesters took things to a new level last night, showing up to protest Fox News host Tucker Carlson at his residence.
As noted by National Review, Smash Racism D.C., a self-described “anti-fascist” group, posted a video of their members screaming obscenities at Carlson’s house and blaming his “policies” for the deaths of thousands of people.
“Tucker Carlson, we will fight!” they chanted. “We know where you sleep at night!”
The incident was so horrifying that his wife, Susie Carlson, thought it was a home invasion. She locked herself in the kitchen pantry and called police. Thankfully, their four children were not home at the time, but it was still undoubtedly traumatic for her.
Susie was home alone for most of the incident, as Carlson was on-air taping his show, “Tucker Carlson Tonight.”
Several video’s were posted to Twitter, but have since been removed. The first showed a protester ringing Carlson’s doorbell before running away saying, “Racist scumbag, leave town!”
Every night you spread fear into our homes—fear of the other, fear of us, and fear of them. Each night you tell us we are not safe. Tonight you’re reminded that we have a voice. Tonight, we remind you that you are not safe either.#KnockKnockTuckerpic.twitter.com/QlNVKS4oxN

Another post accused the host of hiding because he didn’t answer his door. However the post was put up a little after 7pm while Carlson was still on set preparing for his live show.
Carlson has been spewing nonstop hate and lies about he migrant caravan. He also has close ties to white supremacists: https://t.co/jMbQJk3o6D

Carlson’s address was posted in a separate tweet, but was removed by Twitter soon after it was posted. Twitter has since suspended the account of Smash Racism [email protected]
The action’s met swift opposition from both the left and the right. For Fox host Megyn Kelly talked about Carlson’s toughness, however she felt both he and his family did not deserve this.
This has to stop. Who are we? What are we becoming? @TuckerCarlson is tough & can handle a lot, but he does not deserve this. His family does not deserve this. It’s stomach-turning. https://t.co/5vOmriGKkV

What are your thoughts what transpired?
Did the Protesters/Activists cross a line when they showed up at Carlson’s home?
