Police launch investigation after Antifa activists descend on Fox host Tucker Carlson's home
CNN Business ^ | November 8, 2018 | Brian Stelter

Police were called to the Washington, D.C. home of Fox News host Tucker Carlson on Wednesday night when a group of protesters showed up and shouted threats.

Smash Racism D.C., which calls itself an "anti-fascist," or Antifa, group, claimed responsibility for the protest on social media. It has previously targeted Ted Cruz, Kirstjen Nielsen, and other right-wing figures.

I am posting this article because a search reveals it was not previously posted.

Contained within the article:

"Some of the signs were seized as evidence. The police report describes the incident as a "suspected hate crime" and says the motivation was "anti-political." "

What exactly is an anti-political motive? If the police arrived and masked vandals were threatening people in their own home, with obvious signs of property destruction, then how can police justify inaction?

“Hey! I know! Let’s fight fascism by dressing up in uniforms, having huge rallies, smashing people’s houses, painting symbols on their doors .... why, we can even have a night where we bust our enemies windows! .... we could call it....Crystal Night!” — AntiFa

It genuinely feels like I am in 1939 Germany, and my last name is Goldstein.

Apparently, there were only 20 rioters. Any city PD should be able to handle 20.

Maybe you should change your name to Donowitz...

Hit everybody involved with RICO indictments. Give the left a nice big taste of their own medicine.

Police who are part of the ingrained DC Donk-Commie infrastructure just show up to say they are doing something

Close. You're in 1984 Oceania, and your name is Emmanuel Goldstein.

Nothing will come of this. No DA in DC would prosecute, no jury would convict.

White privilege getting its comeuppance,

Max Boot, a conservative columnist and CNN commentator, said he agreed with Gertz.

"I think Tucker is a terrible influence on modern America but that doesn't justify harassing him at home," Boot tweeted. "Go high, not low."


This dude Max Boot gives a very duplicitous condemnation of the political violence. Instead of just condemning the attack, he basically said he has it coming, then goes on to condemn the political violence.

This event is a modern cross burning.

On this point you and I totally agree. Laws enforcement in this country is political in blue areas.

I lived and worked in the region around eight years ago, and my co-worker (long-time DC resident) often discussed how DC ‘protection’ worked. The eastern side of DC for years had prioritized and demanded teacher jobs and public housing. The western side (Georgetown area) demanded cops. So the city council had created this Frankenstein-like public system that everyone got something but it was marginal in terms of value.

The problem I see here is if the cops did respond, and it’s a limited ‘show’ in the first two minutes (say one or two cops), then they might overreact, and have to pull weapons out, and there’s some chance of a couple of dead Antifa guys. I suspect no one in the DC City council wants that, and so the cops are on some leash and told to avoid confrontations.

They’ll be about as successful as they were in finding Seth Rich’s murderer.

Just give the green light for home owners to open fire on anarchist terrorists like this . With ZERO legal liability .

To include the right of administering the coup de gras to those left lying wounded on the ground .

I read they also broke the door.

This was an attack, not “just a protest”.
