Left-wing Activists Threaten Journalist Tucker Carlson: “We’re Outside Your Home”
DC – November 9, 2018
Conservative political commentator Tucker Carlson is afraid for his life, as well as for the life of his family, as the group of activists called Smash Racism DC has declared war on him. What FOX News talk show Tucker Carlson Tonight host is now experiencing is a true terror aimed at him personally for his views on controversial issues that are tearing America apart today.
Carlson is known as a loyal Republican and Donald Trump supporter; he has expressed his harsh opinion on immigration numerous times and was labeled a racist by a number of American media, such as the Washington Post. Carlson has always been pretty explicit in his words. For instance, when opposing modern demographic changes, he wrote that the change seen in a small town of Hazleton, Pennsylvania, where Hispanics went from a small minority to a majority over just a 15-year period was “more change than human beings are designed to digest.”
Moreover, some media have described Carlson's views on changing racial demographics in America as advocating the white genocide conspiracy theory, stating that Carlson was obsessed with this concept. Jessica Reaves, a member of The Anti-Defamation League, also analyzed Carlson’s use of "white genocide" rhetoric in a monologue this year.
Yet, as we all know, America is a country where anybody can express his own opinion without being persecuted for it, no matter how direct and provocative it might be. At least, America was meant to become such a country, thus, the First Amendment was for a long time the basis of American life, as well as the basis for the media. But, it seems like it is not anymore.
“Fascists are vulnerable. Confront them at their homes!” the Smash Racism DC activists say. At the same time, this is an issue to be discussed: where freedom of speech ends and where “fascism” starts, since anybody can be accused of fascism nowadays and be stalked by left-wing activists of various sorts. What Carlson, and America with him in general are witnessing in these days is the true Saturnalia of left-wing terror. Carlson was at work when he started receiving numerous text messages from his neighbors about a crowd of angry people gathered at his doorstep.
“I called my wife,” Carlson said. “She had been in the kitchen alone getting ready to go to dinner and she heard pounding on the front door and screaming. Someone started throwing himself against the front door and actually cracked the front door.” Yet, the police report never mentioned the door was cracked, stating Carlson’s wife just “retreated to a room in the rear of her home,” The police report in general described the incident as a suspected hate crime with an “anti-political” bias.
“It wasn’t a protest. It was a threat,” Carlson said. “They weren’t protesting anything specific that I had said. They weren’t asking me to change anything. They weren’t protesting a policy or advocating for legislation. They were threatening me and my family and telling me to leave my own neighborhood in the city that I grew up in.”
So, think twice next time you dare expressing your own opinion in the land of liberty: Somebody might be watching you.
