No, no. goddamnit, no!

Police were called to the Washington, D.C. home of Fox News host Tucker Carlson on Wednesday night when a group of protesters showed up and shouted threats.

Smash Racism D.C., which calls itself an “anti-fascist,” or Antifa, group, claimed responsibility for the protest on social media. It has previously targeted Ted Cruz, Kirstjen Nielsen, and other right-wing figures.

In videos uploaded to Twitter by the group on Wednesday, participants were heard saying “Tucker Carlson, we will fight! We know where you sleep at night!” They called him a “racist scumbag” and hurled epithets.

The Twitter account also shared Carlson’s address, which is a violation of Twitter’s rules. By late Wednesday night, Twitter had suspended the group, which means the tweets and videos are now deleted.

Carlson told the Washington Post, “It wasn’t a protest. It was a threat.” He said “they were threatening me and my family and telling me to leave my own neighborhood in the city that I grew up in.”

Carlson told the Post that one of the individuals “actually cracked the front door” of his home.

Carlson was at his Fox News office across town, preparing for his 8 p.m. talk show, when the disturbance occurred. His wife Susan was home alone.

Seriously how does this help? 

Who does this and thinks it helps their cause?

All they have done is give Trucker Carlson, and the Right Wing, the opportunity to vilify the Left and play the victim. 

Look I hate Tucker Carlson as much as anybody, and if I saw him in person I would have to fight the urge to punch him in that fat smug face of his. 

But I would indeed fight that urge because I am a fucking adult and I know that hitting him would solve nothing.

Those of us on the Left and I am not really sure if this group can technically be categorized as such, must do a better job than those on the other side of keeping our shit in check. 

Let THEM be the ones who embrace violence, let THEM be the ones who cannot argue with the facts, let THEM be the ones who attempt to win arguments through intimidation. 

WE are better than this, and if WE are not better than this, then WE do not deserve to lead. 

Update: Stephen Colbert weighs in.

Yep, what he said.

    And the anti-fa nonsense has nothing to do with the Democratic Party although Don the Con and his GOP henchmen will push a fake connection. Just wait for it.

    If I saw Tucker Carlson and his wife I think the only confrontation I could come with is to ask her how she could marry him.

    Agreed. Protesting at his home is A-OK, though I’d be happy to stop even that if the right stopped protesting at contractors who build Planned Parenthood clinics – do remember it is the right wing crazies who started this. At least on the left, we actually go after (with protests, not threats) the leaders of this, not peripherals.

    With apologies to MArtin Niemoller:

    First they came for the Tea Party,
    and I did not speak out because I was not of the Tea Party.

    Then they came for the rightwingnutcases,
    and I did not speak up because I am not a rightwingnutcase.

    Then they came for Tucker Carlson,
    And I spoke up and said: “THERE HE IS !! GRAB THE SLIMY BASTARD !!”

    Thank you, Stephen Colbert, you’re correct, but there’s the rub. The alt-right, even GOP politicians, can say any damned thing they want to.
    WE say something, “it’s those damned libs again!” Silence Is Golden can also be taken as cowardice.

    My take is that Antifa is comprised mostly of anarchists who don’t really believe in anything but violence. I despise anarchists. Furthermore, you can’t call yourself a “leftist” if you believe and practice violence. A basic tenet of being a leftist is nonviolent reform.

      I agree with you, Paul. Anarchy is never the answer to anything. It’s violence for the sake of violence, never a good idea. I am also fine with leaving these people alone at their homes and at restaurants, etc. I think it’s best to ignore them. If you make a fuss, you end up making a fool of yourself. If you don’t like Tucker Carlson, don’t watch Fox. If you really feel you have to do something, challenge his advertisers. That’s worked before.

    Tim Kaine’s son is an Antifa member who was arrested for violence like this. Funny how he didn’t mention that in his campaign ads. If Dems want to gain ground more of them need to disavow Antifa and its ilk.

      Why should Democrats disavow Anti-fa? They have nothing to do with the Democratic party.

      While being a progressive I don’t advocate violence, I see nothing wrong with being against fascism. But I can see how fascists wouldn’t like the opposition.

      Where were these holier than thou MAGAngsters when Christine Blasey Ford was doxed, driven from her home, her family threatened, forced into hiding, received death threats.

      Like all bullies they have no problem with dishing it out or standing idly by enjoying the show when others are doing the dirty work, but when the shoe is on the other foot, they clutch their pearls and scream about decency.

      Hypocrites, the lot of them.

        You are the definition of hypocrisy 2:53.

    Don’t sink to the right-wing level. Dr. Christine Blasey Ford has had to move 4 times, hire professional security 24/7 and still has not been able to return to her work due to the on-going threats to herself and her family.

      Did you not see what her outright lies and unfounded accusations did to Kavanough and his family? She is a sick sick person. And of course a ‘professor’.

      What a friggin joke.

    After what the rabid MAGAs are still doing to Chistine Blasey Ford and her family, I have a hard time working up any sympathy.

    That is the biggest load of crap anyone will read all year!

    These are your babies baby. And watch them as they destroy the Democratic Party!
