Fox News execs condemn ‘reprehensible’ threats made outside home of Tucker Carlson

According to police reports, she claims that someone started throwing himself against the front door, nearly cracking it.

"It wasn't a protest".

"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".

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. "We know where you sleep at night!" Carlson said he was at his Fox News office, preparing for his 8 p.m. show, and his wife Susie was home alone at the time.

She locked herself in a safe area and called 911. His brother - who lives close by - arrived about the same time as law enforcement.

The protesters posted a video of their attempt to intimidate Carlson, the co-founder of the Daily Caller and the host of Fox News' "Tucker Carlson Tonight". "I can't have my kids stay at home alone now". "Protests all of a sudden pushing for Jeff Sessions and are outside Tucker Carlson's house are getting a paycheck to do just that".

Smash Racism, D.C., the same group that was behind the protesters that harassed Sen. The same organization made headlines weeks ago after confronting Senator Ted Cruz and his wife at a local restaurant. In a tweet, Smash Racism D.C. said Carlson spreads "fear into our homes" every night and would be reminded "that you are not safe either".

Mr Carlson said the protesters had blocked off both ends of his street and carried signs that listed his home address. Only a few survive, because other people have tweeted on top of them.

He added: "Im not going to be bullied and intimidated".

"I think Tucker is a awful influence on modern America but that doesn't justify harassing him at home". Obviously don't do this, but also, take no pleasure in it happening.

CNN's Washington bureau chief Sam Feist tweeted, "What happened at @TuckerCarlson's house last night is outrageous and should be universally condemned".

Tucker's former Fox News colleague, Megyn Kelly, decried the incident over Twitter. We as a nation have become far too intolerant of different points of view. "@TuckerCarlson is tough & can handle a lot, but he does not deserve this". "It was a threat", said Carlson, who is often denounced by critics, particularly liberal critics, for inflammatory rhetoric about immigrants and minorities on his Fox News show.

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