A group of protesters congregated outside what they claimed was Fox News host Tucker Carlson’s home in Washington, D.C., on Wednesday night to chant threatening messages.
Smash Racism D.C., a self-described “anti-fascist” group, posted a video of their members screaming obscenities at Carlson’s house and blaming his “policies” for the deaths of thousands of people.
“Tucker Carlson, we will fight!” the protesters chanted. “We know where you sleep at night!”
In the first video posted to Twitter, one protester can be seen ringing Carlson’s doorbell before running away.
One tweet posted a few minutes after 7p.m. — less than an hour before the beginning of “Tucker Carson Tonight” — accuses the host of hiding because he didn’t answer his door.
One of the group’s tweets, which included Carlson’s address, was removed by Twitter soon after it was posted.
This particular group of left-wing agitators has previously targeted a number of prominent Republicans for public harassment, including most recently Senator Ted Cruz of Texas, who was chased out of restaurant in downtown Washington, D.C., along with his wife in late September.
The group also harassed Department of Homeland Security secretary Kirstjen Nielsen, forcing her to leave a restaurant in June, as a group of men berated her for her role in implementing the administration’s zero-tolerance immigration-enforcement policy.
Carlson described coping with public harassment during a recent appearance on National Review’s The Jamie Weinstein Show.
“I can’t really go to a lot of restaurants anymore because I get yelled at,” Carlson said. “I don’t feel threatened, but having someone scream,‘F*** you!’ at a restaurant, it just wrecks your meal.”
