Washington, DC – An irate mob of antifa surrounded the home of FOX News Channel’s Tucker Carlson on Wednesday night, broke his oak door, and threatened him and his family.
“Tucker Carlson, we will fight! We know where you sleep at night!” the Smash Racism D.C. members yelled in video posted to social media, according to FOX News.
“Racist s–tbag, leave town!” they hollered at one point.
The group also hung a sign with the “Tucker Carlson Tonight” host’s home address on his front door, then photographed the sign and posted it to social media, The Daily Caller reported.
“Each night you remind us that we are not safe. Tonight, we remind you that you are not safe either,” the group wrote, according to FOX News.
In another Twitter video, protesters chanted, “No borders! No walls! No USA at all!” The Daily Caller reported.
“Tucker Carlson, you cannot hide from the people you hurt with your rhetoric, your lies, and your hate #KnockKnockTucker ,” Smash Racism D.C. wrote in another Twitter post.
According to The Washington Post, one protester with a bullhorn accused the host of “promoting hate,” and said he has spread “an ideology that has led to thousands of people dying.”
Carlson was at work when the mob showed up, and his wife was home alone, FOX News reported.
When she heard the crowd converging on her residence, she locked herself in the kitchen pantry and called police.
“I called my wife,” Carlson recounted to The Washington Post. “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.”
Carlson said that protesters rang his doorbell, and that one was captured on security camera footage mentioning a “pipe bomb,” FOX News reported.
The antifa group scattered after police arrived at the home, and it was unclear whether or not anyone was arrested.
According to TMZ, the protesters spray painted an anarchy symbol on Carlson’s driveway, and hung signs on his home and vehicles referencing his affiliation with the Republican party.
“Fascists are vulnerable,” the group wrote in a Facebook post, according to The Washington Post. “Confront them at their homes!”
“Protecting ourselves and our communities means interfering with those who make a platform for hate,” the post continued. “So we will go to their homes and their workplaces, and find them in restaurants.”
Carlson said he has become accustomed to being confronted in public places, but that his wife and four children should not have to live in fear inside their own home, FOX News reported.
“Here’s the problem, I have four children,” he said. “I never thought twice about leaving them home alone, but this is the reaction because this group doesn’t like my TV show.”
Twitter has since deleted the post showing Carlson’s home address, and suspended Smash Racism D.C.’s account on Thursday.
“It wasn’t a protest. It was a threat,” Carlson told The Washington Post. “They weren’t protesting anything specific that I had said. They weren’t asking me to change anything. They weren’t protesting a policy or advocating for legislation.”
“They were threatening me and my family and telling me to leave my own neighborhood in the city that I grew up in,” he said.
The same group also confronted Senator Ted Cruz at a restaurant in September during Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation hearings, FOX News reported.
“We believe survivors!” the activists yelled at Cruz, who was at dinner with his wife. “Sexist, racist, anti-gay!”
At another restaurant in June, the group berated Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen for helping to implement President Donald Trump’s zero-tolerance immigration policy, the National Review reported.
