Fox News Host Tucker Carlson's Home Targeted by Anti-Fascist Protesters

Quote:
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!"

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."

The group of tolerance, acceptance, inclusiveness....well, not so much anymore.


I still have many 'liberal' positions on some subjects, but I refuse to be classified with these moronic, overgrown twits who haven't hit mental puberty yet.

Oh look, someone is justifying these insulate scumbags using moral equivalency as a way to keep from having to condemn this trash behavior.

If you will remember, every conservative on this board denounced the pipe bomber before and after his identity was known. Nobody tried to justify his actions.

So you are saying those who were ringing Carlson's doorbell were mentally unbalanced also?

Love how the supposed stamp of political position is first and foremost when a person who is part of the opposing party does something, but not applicable to their own.

Except you have that backwards. He should have shot one or two for criminal trespass.

For just a minute, let's accept your idiotic premise to ask you this question: I take it that you see no problem with this?

How about I get a group of people and call them Anti-Liberal and send them to your house to harass you and your family, night and day and then attempt to bust down your front door. Would that be OK with you because you are a liberal and they are a group of anti-liberals?

You really need to engage your brain before you type Salty. You come here and defend almost every stupid action by leftists because you agree with your ideology. And this from the poster that started the daily Bible verse thread. Posting Bible verses does not make you a Christian. Christians would condemn evil regardless of their political ideology. God doesn't care about your politics.

I don't appreciate your condescending then blatant critical attitude of me personally-and not because of any perceived board regulations but from the standpoint of decency in conversation. I used to be ultra nicey-nice on here and some far-right rw'rs began treating me like shLt, of which your attitude above is a partial example.

that is not a thing because no one would form an anti-Liberal group since Liberalism is a political stance widely accepted as legitimate in this country. would be like forming an anti-red heads group.
Fascism, on the other hand, is a dangerous and very anti-American ideology that tuck appears to adhere to.

I would call the police. political stance having not much to do with it

Again you are not making your case, just hurling insults

I am a moderate conservative. I like to debate. Sometimes I play devil's advocate. I am passionate about health care and corruption. the rest I take a stance on to discuss and try to pry good information out of other debaters.

I believe in God so I must be a Republican? Is that what you are getting at?
That's ridiculous. God loves us all.
Quote:

correct. looking at your sins, being truly sorry for them, asking forgiveness, and accepting Jesus Christ as your savior from the damnation which you otherwise justly deserve-
makes you saved. you can call it anything you want. Christian is a good word so we'll go with that.

Quote:

I do. That's why I am not fond of the POTUS


Quote:

precisely so why bring that up?

Let me save you some time for future reference. it takes a lot to hurt my feelings. and posters on an online forum are just vapor. I don't pretend they love me. And I am much more impressed if they can look up real sources and give me a rousing fact-based argument with links to back up their claims.
I'm even more impressed if they can teach me something.

I don't care about his views in this situation. Tucker could be a literal swastika armband Nazi, and it's still not right for this mob to swarm his house when his wife and children are home alone, and intimidate and vandalize his property.
