[Ed. – According to the WaPo, Smash Racism D.C., the group behind the act of terrorism, accused Carlson of “spreading ‘fear into our homes’ every night, taking particular issue with his comments about the migrant caravan.
“’Tonight you’re reminded that we have a voice,’ a now-deleted tweet read. ‘Tonight, we remind you that you are not safe either.’”]
As it turns out, these Antifa-linked thugs showed up when their target wasn’t even home. … But Carlson’s wife was at the house, and she was terrified:
Fox News host Tucker Carlson was at his desk Wednesday evening, less than two hours before his 8 p.m. live show, when he suddenly started receiving multiple text messages. There was some sort of commotion happening outside his home in Northwest D.C. “I called my wife,” Carlson told The Washington Post in a phone interview. “She had been in the kitchen alone getting ready to go to dinner and she heard pounding on the front door and screaming. … Someone started throwing himself against the front door and actually cracked the front door.” His wife, thinking it was a home invasion, locked herself in the pantry and called 911, Carlson said. The couple have four children, but none were home at the time. But it wasn’t a home invasion. It was a protest.
I’m not sure any of what is described above can be accurately characterized as a “protest” in the American political tradition. It was intimidation, pure and simple. It was a mob — and yes, that word applies.
