The Antifa mob, which showed up at the DC home of Tucker Carlson, not only terrorized his wife, but also vandalized a car and the driveway. The incident is now being investigated as a possible hate crime.

The Associated Press reports:

Protesters target home of Fox News’ Tucker Carlson

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.

Carlson, in a phone interview with his network Thursday night, called the incident “chilling” and “upsetting.”

Washington’s Metropolitan Police Department reported that officers were summoned to Carlson’s home Wednesday evening and found about 20 protesters and a commonly used anarchy symbol spray-painted on the driveway.

A brief video posted on social media by a group calling itself “Smash Racism DC” shows people standing outside a darkened home and chanting, “Tucker Carlson, we will fight. We know where you sleep at night.”

The video was later removed from Twitter.

There were no arrests, but police confiscated several signs. The report lists the incident as a “suspected hate crime” on the basis of “anti-political” bias.

Executives at FOX News released a statement. Peter Hasson reports at the Daily Caller:

Fox News CEO Suzanne Scott and president Jay Wallace denounced a left-wing mob that showed up outside Fox News host Tucker Carlson’s house and tried to intimidate him into fleeing Washington, D.C.

“The incident that took place at Tucker’s home last night was reprehensible. The violent threats and intimidation tactics toward him and his family are completely unacceptable,” Scott and Wallace said in a statement released to The Daily Caller News Foundation on Thursday.

“We as a nation have become far too intolerant of different points of view. Recent events across our country clearly highlight the need for a more civil, respectful, and inclusive national conversation. Those of us in the media and in politics bear a special obligation to all Americans, to find common ground,” the Fox New executives added.

Some liberals in media condemned the act on Twitter. Brian Stelter of CNN:

Stephen Colbert:

While others used it as an excuse to double down. Jennifer Rubin of the Washington Post used it as an excuse to attack Sarah Huckabee Sanders:

Matthew Yglesias of VOX had a disgusting take and has since deleted his entire Twitter history but Sean Davis of the Federalist has a screen shot:

Davis is not the only person using the word “sociopath” to describe that tweet. Ace of Spades writes:

Little children gain the power of empathy through imagination and experience. They know what it feels like to be physically hurt; it makes them cry.

For a period, they cannot imagine what it might feel like to someone else to be hurt, and they laugh at other’s hurts; but eventually, the power of empathetic imagination develops, and they can see themselves in the other person being hurt, and they link it to their own memories of being hurt, and they feel empathy.

Empathy makes us human, obviously. The Voigt-Kampff test from Blade Runner could tell a robot from a human being based on the subject showing, or not showing, the physical signs of empathy for another living being.

These NPCs are very much like human-shaped robots. They’re sociopaths. They’re Replicants. They are incapable of seeing other people and wondering what terror feels like from their perspective.

And they’re proud of it. Yglesias is bragging about being a sociopath here.

Tucker, who is on planned vacation time, did call in to his show on Thursday night to comment. Here’s part of what he said to guest host Brian Kilmeade via the Washington Times:

Tucker Carlson condemns Antifa mob: ‘This is a threat to freedom of expression … to all of us’

Fox News host Tucker Carlson said on his show Thursday night that the previous day’s Antifa attack on his home is also a general attack on free thought and free speech.

He said that the Antifa mob vandalizing his home, blocking off the streets and yelling about pipe bombs, and knocking on his doors aren’t engaged in the marketplace of ideas.

“I’ve characterized Antifa and the like as protesters. But they’re not. What are they protesting?” by rioting outside his home and painting anarchy symbols on the driveway, Mr. Carlson said via phone to substitute host Brian Kilmeade.

“They’re not trying to change my mind. They’re trying to threaten my family to get me to stop talking.”

It’s important to note that this did not occur out of thin air. The left has been building towards this for months. Remember that the mob outside Tucker’s home said “we know where you sleep” and then take a look at this now deleted September 28th tweet by Ian Millhiser, an editor for the far left site Think Progress:
