Tucker Carlson Says Antifa Protests Were 'Upsetting'

Carlson told the Washington Post that his wife "had been in the kitchen alone getting ready to go to dinner and she heard pounding on the front door and screaming".

A group of protesters sieged the home of the Fox News host Tucker Carlson and his family on Wednesday night, ringing his doorbell and chanting threatening messages.

The group's video of the protest on Twitter has since been deleted - and Twitter suspended the group's account.

"Tucker Carlson, we will fight, we know where you sleep at night", the group chanted.

She locked herself in the pantry and called police at 6.30pm as the mob screamed and banged on her front door.

The Fox News host wasn't home and neither were any of his four children.

LifeSiteNews launched the petition Friday after learning 20 or so extremists were shouting profanities and cursing the conservative television host, with one person going so far as to throw himself against and break Carlson's front door.

The LifeSiteNews petition, addressed to Carlson, says, "I stand with you and your family, especially your wife, during this time and will offer up in my prayers a special request that God bless and protect you and your family".

The group, Smash Racism D.C., has been described as a local anti-fascist organization. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) and his wife at a restaurant during Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh's contentious confirmation process, said it was behind the protest at the Carlson residence.

Business Insider previously reported Carlson's saying he was regularly heckled in Washington restaurants.

Apparently, Smash Racism D.C. had been planning this attack a few weeks in advance.

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

Carlson said the protesters had blocked off both ends of his street and carried signs that listed his home address. They werent asking me to change anything.

"Fighting Tucker Carlson's ideas is an American right". The Facebook video was also taken down, but the page is still up.

Yglesias initially responded to Slate writer Will Saletan, who had criticized the group's actions by writing on Twitter, "One way to become the fascists is to think you can do anything in the name of anti-fascism".

Tucker's former Fox News colleague, Megyn Kelly, decried the incident over Twitter.
