Smash Racism DC, an Antifa group known for flash mobbing and harassing surprised GOP officials, struck again last night. Just before 8 p.m., the group began chanting and protesting at the home of Fox News personality Tucker Carlson.
They rang his doorbell several times with no answer, gleefully posting their activity on Twitter while chanting, “No Borders! No Wall! No USA at all!” This group was also responsible for trespassing at a DC restaurant and harassing Sen. Ted Cruz and his wife during the Brett Kavanaugh hearings.

Shortly after arriving, the mob attached a piece of paper to the Carlson’s front door with the family’s full address printed on it. They took a photo of the private residence with the address fully legible, and posted it to their Twitter account. It took several hours for the account to be suspended on Twitter.
The chants continued, “Racist scumbag, leave town!” and “Tucker Carlson, we will fight! We know where you sleep at night!” The group posted their activity on Twitter attached to the creepy hashtag #KnockKnockTucker.

"Every night you spread fear into homes — we remind you that you are not safe either"
Tucker has 4 children.

The group’s Twitter posts attempted to explain targeting Carlson: “Every night you spread fear into our homes- fear of the other, fear of us, and fear of them. Each night you tell us we are not safe. Tonight you’re reminded that we have a voice. Tonight, we remind you that you are not safe either.”
They went on to call him a “fear monger” and said, “Tucker Carlson has been spewing nonstop hate and lies about the migrant caravan. He also has close ties to white supremacists.”
Since the group seems to be familiar with “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” it stands to reason they are aware that it airs on weeknights at 8 p.m., and that it was extremely unlikely he would be at home when they arrived shortly before the show began. It was far more likely that his wife and possibly children would be on the other side of the door, alone, which was mercifully never opened.
After many complaints, Twitter removed Smash Racism DC’s posted picture of the Carlson home address, but the other posts that included unveiled threats of “We know where you sleep at night” and “Tonight, we remind you that you are not safe either” took several hours to be removed.
Posting personal information about a person with the intent of harassing or bullying him, or putting him at direct risk of violence, is a federal crime. Any person involved with the choice to reveal this information is subject to federal prosecution.
This type of behavior is in no way covered by a right to free speech. This is criminal activity, plain and simple. In addition to the federal crime of revealing a home address, this mob is guilty of trespassing and harassment at the very least. It is not yet clear if local police were on the scene or able to make arrests before the mob dispersed.
