You are not safe: Protesters sieged Fox News host Tucker Carlsons Washington home in the middle of the night
(CNN)Police were called to the Washington, D.C. home of Fox News host Tucker Carlson on Wednesday night when a group of protesters showed up and shouted threats.

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.

TUCKER: I WILL NOT BE INTIMIDATED: FOX News host Tucker Carlson vowed he would not be "silenced" after left-wing Antifa members targeted his home, and he thanked well-wishers for their support … On Wednesday evening, a self-described Antifa group posted videos of a mob outside the Washington, D.C., home of Carlson, chanting, “Tucker Carlson, we will fight. We know where you sleep at night.” Carlson was on a pre-planned vacation Thursday night when he called into his own show to discuss how Antifa members had gathered outside his home and threatened his wife and family. "What’s it like to find out that your wife is hiding in the pantry because people are threatening her? I mean, it’s upsetting,” Carlson told guest host Brian Kilmeade. “I've characterized the Antifa people and people like them as protesters, but they’re not. I mean, they weren't protesting anything. … They weren't trying to change my mind. … They were threatening my family to get me to stop talking. And obviously, I'm not going to because it's my job."

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

ASYLUM FIGHT BREWS: The Trump administration announced Thursday that migrants who attempt to cross the U.S.-Mexico border illegally will not be eligible to claim asylum under a new rule meant to crack down on "meritless" claims … The rule, which prevents migrants from claiming asylum if they do not do so at an official border crossing, is the latest attempt by the White House to handle a surge in migration to the U.S. from the Central American countries of Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador. President Trump is expected to formally enact the rule in a presidential proclamation Friday and will invoke the same powers he used to push through a version of the travel ban that was upheld by the Supreme Court, according to senior administration officials. – Reported by Samuel Chamberlain •    Feinstein urged Obama in 2014 to use 'broad power' to limit immigration •    Federal appeals court rules against Trump administration on DACA

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

THE LEAD STORY – CHAOS IN FLORIDA – Accusing Democrats of conducting a coordinated effort to "steal" elections in a campaign of possibly "rampant fraud," Republican U.S. Senate candidate Rick Scott filed explosive lawsuits late Thursday against the top election officials in two heavily Democratic counties, as they continue to report new votes and three major races in the state appear headed for recounts …  In their lawsuit against Broward County, Scott and the National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC) allege that officials there are hiding critical information about the number of votes cast and counted. And in a parallel suit against Palm Beach County, Scott and the NRSC charge that the election supervisor there illegally used her own judgment to determine voter intent when reviewing damaged absentee ballots, while refusing to allow witnesses to monitor the process.

Carlson later told Fox News that his wife was home alone at the time, but that he was at Fox News studios in Washington preparing his show.

"The incident that took place at Tuckers home last night was reprehensible. The violent threats and intimidation tactics toward him and his family are completely unacceptable. We as a nation have become far too intolerant of different points of view.  Recent events across our country clearly highlight the need for a more civil, respectful, and inclusive national conversation. Those of us in the media and in politics bear a special obligation to all Americans, to find common ground."

Antifa protest at Tucker Carlsons home stirs outrage

“Heres the problem: I have four children,” Fox News quoted Carlson as saying. “I never thought twice about leaving them home alone, but this is the reaction because this group doesnt like my TV show.”

"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 youre reminded that we have a voice," read a Wednesday tweet by "Smash Racism DC." Moments earlier, the wife of Fox News host Tucker Carlson saw protesters surrounded her house, leading her to believe they were going to break down her door.

In a joint statement, Fox News CEO Suzanne Scott and network president Jay Wallace called the incident “reprehensible.”

Employing the new and improved Brown Shirts, the Antifa, is message that must be sent to anyone and everyone who is not politically correct. It is only through threats and violence can the opponents of progressive totalitarianism be subdued in order usher in the coveted peoples revolution. This ploy worked well with Hitler and Lenin, and we all know what wonderful, delightful and humane societies they produced, and lets face it. These wonderful people, who take the time and trouble to punch, yell, scream, bang drums, blow whistles, blow up cars, start riots and physically harass the doubters and dissenters are doing Gods (The State) work, and they and should be encouraged instead of disparaged. Indeed, we should all thank and encourage these new Brown Shirts for taking the concept of peace, tolerance, acceptance and love to a new level because it is only through violence, intimidation and persecution can we show the world how America has evolved politically. So instead of condemning and kicking the Antifa Brown Shirts in the groin ten or twenty times, raise your right hand as Hitler would have to show your support of them and their actions.

“The violent threats and intimidation tactics toward him and his family are completely unacceptable. We as a nation have become far too intolerant of different points of view,” they said. “Recent events across our country clearly highlight the need for a more civil, respectful, and inclusive national conversation. Those of us in the media and in politics bear a special obligation to all Americans, to find common ground.”

Here again we see “alt-right” being used as the ultimate weasel word. From what I have seen, absolutely no one in the online crowds that the users of that subreddit travel in would use “alt-right” to mean anything but ethno-identitarians of some sort. This is the rather specific way its used in those crowds–not whatever broad sense it may have been used, nor the broad “whomever we feel like insulting” sense the prog media uses it. So to suggest that adopting cultural conservatism or cultural nationalism like being for closed borders, or wanting to defend European culture, or being protectionist–well you might say any or all of those things are wrong, or are not libertarian, or even morally repugnant, whatever. But to say that libertarians got “infected” with them mostly through alt-right influence is factually ludicrous. And to say that adopting them makes you identical to the alt-right is insane.

Antifa targets Tucker Carlson as hit list expands to conservative media

Smash Racism DC, the group that first posted the video on Twitter, claimed responsibility for chasing Sen. Ted Cruz out of a Washington restaurant in September by chanting “We believe survivors” during Brett Kavanaughs Supreme Court confirmation hearings.

My advice to everybody: stop watching cable network news programs. CBS, NBC, and ABC news are easy to let go of too. The News Hour on PBS used to be somewhat reasonable – but I have not watched it years. I just find TV to be a waste of time for the most part. I cut the cable 14 years ago. If I want to watch March Madness or perhaps the Super Bowl or the Olympics, I get fine reception with my “rabbit ears” antenna. Other than that, I stick with streaming on NetFlix and Amazon Prime – on my schedule. Commercials? Dont miss them in the least. As far as news consumption goes, the internet is fine. I just sample Reason, NRO, The Atlantic, The Nation, and some of the Real Clear sites. Oh, almost forgot, I read the WSJ too, but thats mostly due to my profession (financial advisor) and my local newspaper.

Business Insider previously reported Carlsons saying he was regularly heckled in Washington restaurants. “Having someone scream, F— you! at a restaurant, it just wrecks your meal,” he said during the National Review podcast “The Jamie Weinstein Show” in October.

“It wasn’t a protest. It was a threat,” said [Fox News host Tucker] Carlson, who is often denounced by critics, particularly liberal ones, for his rhetoric about immigrants and minorities on his Fox News show. “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.”

Smash Racism DC told Business Insider: “White supremacy should have no home. Fascist pundits who promote violence deserve no peace.”

Can we talk about how a woman who was home alone making dinner had to lock herself in a closet and call 911 because people were trying to break down her door to protest a person they just don’t agree with? Is this what our city has come to?”

Suzanne Scott, CEO of Fox News and Jay Wallace, President of Fox News, told Business Insider in a joint statement:

“Some extremists do not see the value of dialogue or compromise and are concerned with the speed of change. Most importantly, when core values seem under threat, these individuals are using violence in what they perceive as a defensive action,” he said. “ISIS-inspired actors always cite their actions as defensive. The Pittsburgh synagogue shooter felt that his race and people were under threat. Whether this is true or not, I think these beliefs are motivating people to violent action.”

“The incident that took place at Tuckers home last night was reprehensible. The violent threats and intimidation tactics toward him and his family are completely unacceptable.”

Political violence has been rising in the U.S. since 2012, according to the Global Terrorism Database. Increasingly aggressive activists have pushed political confrontation to the limit since 2016, accosting Republican lawmakers and Trump administration officials in restaurants and in the halls of Congress. And now they’re going after conservative journalists at their homes.

Is CNN finally going to admit Antifa is a mob?

“We as a nation have become far too intolerant of different points of view. Recent events across our country clearly highlight the need for a more civil, respectful, and inclusive national conversation. Those of us in the media and in politics bear a special obligation to all Americans, to find common ground.”
