Stephen Colbert slams protest at Tucker Carlson's home as 'monstrous cowardice'

Tucker Carlson targeted for harassment by left-wing group that went after Ted Cruz and his wife

Tucker Carlson targeted for harassment by left-wing group that went after Ted Cruz and his wife

Videos of the protest were reportedly posted online by an anti-fascist group called Smash Racism D.C., the Twitter account of which has since been suspended.

The left-wing group had previously posted video of their harassment of Cruz and his wife at a D.C. restaurant. "We know where you sleep at night!"

While it's uncertain why he deleted his tweets, and whether it was because of the backlash, or anticipation thereof, Twitter wasted no time in speculating. "It was a threat".

"I think the idea behind terrorizing his family, like it or not as a strategy, is to make them feel some of the fear that the victims of MAGA-inspired violence feel thanks to the non-stop racial incitement coming from Tucker, Trump, etc".

In an interview with Fox News' Brian Kilmeade, Carlson, who on his show often exposes globalist George Soros and his shadowy dealings, said the mob was an attempt to intimidate him. His wife Susan was home alone. While Carlson was not home - he was preparing to go on the air - his wife was, and she locked herself in the pantry out of fear of the angry mob outside. When she looked through a window, she saw a crowd of people standing in front of her home, chanting loudly. They had a bull horn and were chanting loudly. "She retreated to a room in the rear of her home and summoned police". Only a few survive, because other people have tweeted on top of them.

There was an anarchy symbol spray painted on the driveway.

Some of the signs were seized as evidence. The police report describes the incident as a "suspected hate crime" on the basis of "anti-political" bias, according to the Associated Press.

Carlson was not home at the time.

Ranveer Singh to move in with Deepika Padukone post marriage
The couple was spotted at Mumbai airport, twinning in white and making everyone go "awww" over their glowing faces. In a Twitter post shared by Deepika Padukone , the wedding celebrations will take place on November 14 and 15.

Megyn Kelly, the former Fox News personality who is reportedly in exit talks with NBC, called the demonstration "stomach-turning". He does not deserve this. S.E. Cupp, a CNN host, wrote on Twitter that the activists actions were "not okay", adding, "dont do this". "By the political left, the political right or the deranged".

"I think Tucker is a awful influence on modern America but that doesn't justify harassing him at home", Boot said in a tweet.

"This behavior is way over the line", senior fellow Matthew Gertz tweeted. "It's also extremely counterproductive if your interest is actually in reducing his influence".

Fox News CEO Suzanne Scott and Fox News President Jay Wallace issued a joint statement Thursday condemning the "reprehensible" protest at Carlson's home. The Facebook video was also taken down, but the page is still up.

Vox did not respond to the Daily Caller's request for comment.

Carlson's colleagues came to his defense.

As Carlson noted, Fox News supported him in the controversy.
