  • Protesters thronged Tucker Carlson’s Washington, DC, family
    home on Wednesday night chanting insults, threats, and demanding
    he move from the city. 
  • In two videos shared on social media, the group chanted: “We
    know where you sleep at night,” and told him “you are not safe.”
  • The Fox News “Tucker Carlson Tonight” host told the network
    he was at work at the time, but his wife and four kids were
    home. 
  • One video was posted by “Smash Racism DC,” famous for chasing
    Ted Cruz out of a DC restaurant over his support of Brett
    Kavanaugh.

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

A YouTube video of the event which originated on now-suspended
Twitter page “Smash Racism DC,” is poorly lit, but a lead
protester says calls Carlson a racist and a fascist before
breaking into threatening chants. 

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

Here’s the video, quoted extensively by US news outlets: 

In a separate video, posted by The Daily Caller reporter Benny
Johnson on Twitter, the group seems to threaten Carlson’s family,
telling the Fox News host he is “not safe.”

The size of the protest group is not known. 


Carlson later told Fox News
that his wife was at home with
his four children at the time, but he missed it as he was at Fox
News’ studios in Washington preparing his show.

Fox News said that activists rang Carlson’s doorbell and
broke his oak door.

Carlson also alleges one protester was caught on security video
mentioning a pipe bomb, Fox News said.

Tucker Carlson says he ‘can’t really go to restaurants anymore’
because people keep screaming profanities at him.

The network said Carlson told them by phone: “Here’s the problem,
I have four children. I never thought twice about leaving them
home alone, but this is the reaction because this group doesn’t
like my TV show.”

“Smash Racism DC,” the group who first posted the video on
Twitter, claimed responsibility for chasing
Ted Cruz out of a DC restaurant in September
 by chanting
“we believe survivors” during Supreme Court Justice Brett
Kavanaugh’s confirmation hearings.  


Business Insider reported Carlson said he was regularly heckled
in Washington restaurants.
 He said: “Having someone
scream, ‘F— you!’ at a restaurant, it just wrecks your meal,”
appearing on the National Review podcast “The Jamie Weinstein
Show” in October.

Business Insider tried to reach Smash Racism DC for comment, but
has received no response.
