A far-left group showed up at the home of Fox News host Tucker Carlson in Washington in the dark and started shouting threats of violence.
"We want you to know, we know where you sleep at night", this person said before beginning the chant: "Tucker Carlson, we will fight! We know where you sleep at night!" In a video posted online, the group can also be heard saying, "Racist scumbag, leave town!"
'We welcome those who come here to exercise their First Amendment rights in a safe and peaceful manner; however, we prohibit them from breaking the law, ' the MPD tells DailyMail.com in a statement. "Tonight, we remind you that you are not safe either", the group wrote. Twitter has since suspended the group's account, but the video can still be viewed on the accounts of journalists who condemned the situation.
Some background: on Wednesday night a group of 20 or so aggressive protestors gathered outside Carlson's private home in a threatening and violent manner. Obviously don't do this, but also, take no pleasure in it happening. "They werent protesting anything specific that I had said".
"I think Tucker is a awful influence on modern America but that doesn't justify harassing him at home", Boot said in a tweet.
"I met a woman who didn't leave the house for months because she was afraid of being picked up by ICE and never seeing her U.S. citizen kids and husband again".
Carlson lamented the fact that other people didn't have the same protection that he did as a Fox News host.

"The incident that took place at Tucker's home last night was reprehensible".
Admonished by Saletan to not make Carlson "the victim", Yglesias responded, "I didn't break his door and I agree that he's bad". Former Fox host Megyn Kelly tweeted: "This has to stop... Go high, not low", CNN commentator Max Boot tweeted.
"It's just a reminder of what a really nice country it is", he added before commenting on how his wife hid in the pantry during the incident.
Now, Carlson is anxious about leaving his family alone at home.
"How can you go out for dinner and leave the kids at home at this point?" he said.
Wednesday nights events are the latest in a spate of harassment aimed at prominent politicians and media outlets, ranging from being heckled in restaurants to receiving packages containing explosive devices.
"I don't feel threatened physically".
