Protesters targeted the Washington, D.C., home of Fox News host Tucker Carlson on Wednesday night, ringing the door bell and chanting, “Racist scumbag, leave town!”, reports The Hollywood Reporter, which added: “An anti-fascist group called Smash Racism DC announced the protest in a video posted late Wednesday: “BREAKING. Activists ring doorbell, hold protest at the Washington DC area home of @TuckerCarlson, racist, sexist, bigoted FOX News personality. So far no one has opened the door.”
““Tucker Carlson, we will fight!” the protesters chanted. “We know where you sleep at night!”
“Carlson, one of the network’s biggest stars, has previously been targeted by activists. In a podcast last month, the host said he can’t dine out at restaurants anymore (except for one) because people keep yelling obscenities at him.
“According to a local police report provided to The Hollywood Reporter, Carlson’s wife called police after hearing a loud banging on the door.
“”MPD arrived on scene and found a group of approximately 20 people,” the Metropolitan Police Department said. “It was discovered that unknown persons spray painted an anarchy symbol on the driveway. There were also signs left on the vehicles parked in the driveway as well as a sign left on the front door of the home.”
“Last month, the group accosted Texas Sen. Ted Cruz at a restaurant for his support of then-Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, chanting “We believe survivors!” until he left the establishment.
“On Wednesday night, several hours after the incident, Twitter suspended the group’s account, which had posted an image that included Carlson’s address.”
