A mob of far-left radicals gathered outside of the home of Fox News host Tucker Carlson Wednesday night and threatened violence to him and his family.
The far-left group known on social media as “Smash Racism DC” posted a video of the mob on Twitter before its account was suspended.
The same group was responsible for the mob in September that ambushed Texas Sen. Ted Cruz and his wife in a restaurant.
In the video that still exists of the Wednesday night mob, the left-wing agitators can be seen chanting “racist scumbag, leave town,” outside of Carlson’s home near Washington, D.C.
A mob has gathered outside Tucker Carlson’s home demanding his family leave DC because he is a “racist scumbag.”
“Every night you spread fear into homes — we remind you that you are not safe either”
Tucker has 4 children.

“Each night you remind us that we are not safe. Tonight, we remind you that you are not safe either,” the group originally said in its video.
That’s a pretty explicit threat. For a group that calls itself “anti-fascist,” its members seem to be using fascist-like techniques.
In a similar vein to the Nazi’s brownshirts, these antifa mobs intend to intimidate and silence their political enemies, even if it means going after their families.
Carlson has a wife and four children who are just as affected by this as he is.
Carlson wasn’t home at the time when the mob surrounded his house, but his wife was, and she called the police before locking herself in a pantry as the terrifying mob roared on, according to Fox News.
It’s hard for the average person to comprehend how horrifying it would be to have an angry mob outside your house saying that you’re not going to be safe.
The angry mob also damaged Carlson’s house by breaking his oak door. One of the protesters also mentioned a pipe bomb on security footage.
Carlson is used to being confronted in public, but he is worried about his wife and four children.
“Here’s the problem, I have four children,” he told Fox News, “I never thought twice about leaving them home alone, but this is the reaction because this group doesn’t like my TV show.”
I wonder if CNN will finally be able to use the “m-word” to denounce this fascist-like, left-wing mob.
The left needs to rein in their angry mobs because things have already gotten out of hand.
