Tucker Carlson Threatened

In honor of Veterans Day, we'll be taking a brief hiatus. We'll be back in full swing Wednesday (new glasses and all)!

“Police say they are investigating a protest and vandalism at the home of Fox News host Tucker Carlson as a possible hate crime. It’s the latest example of protesters targeting the personal lives of Trump administration officials and allies in the D.C. area.”

AP News

Many across the political spectrum condemned the attack.

  • Stephen Colbert tweeted, “Fighting Tucker Carlson’s ideas is an American right. Targeting his home and terrorizing his family is an act of monstrous cowardice. Obviously don’t do this, but also, take no pleasure in it happening. Feeding monsters just makes more monsters.” Twitter

Both sides also agree that the effort will backfire.

  • How strategically stupid must you be to organize an actual mob against a right-wing media star, replete with video, after Republicans just cleaned up in the Senate campaigning against progressive mobs?” Hot Air
  • “Carlson and his ilk thrive on the perception that liberals are hypocrites, that they lack basic decency, that they represent a threat to mainstream American values. They revel in highlighting isolated acts of violence by liberal activists or immigrants to rile up conservative viewers. By threatening his family, a handful of overexcited activists just handed Carlson a bucket of gasoline for that fire.” Slate

Finally, both sides condemn Antifa.
