Antifa group suspended from Twitter after posting video of mobbing Tucker Carlson's home

An Antifa affiliate group in the nation's capital, Smash Racism D.C., was suspended from Twitter after posting a video of a mob descending on Fox News host Tucker Carlson’s home Wednesday evening.

The group — a far-left anti-fascism militant movement that often puts on violent and destructive demonstrations — posted the video on its Twitter account @SmashRacismDC, which is now directed to a suspended page, and the group later deleted the tweet.

"Tucker Carlson, we are outside your home to protest ... fascism and racism," a demonstrator can be heard saying in the video. "You promote hate."

In the video, the crowd can be heard chanting, “Tucker Carlson, we will fight! We know where you sleep at night!”

Carlson was not home at the time the mob appeared at his house, and was at Fox preparing for his evening show.

The Fox News host said someone from the group threw himself against the front door and caused it to crack.

The group’s Facebook page is still up and operational.

Smash Racism D.C. is responsible for staging other demonstrations against prominent Republican figures, including confronting Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, and his wife, Heidi Cruz, in a D.C. restaurant due to his support for Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh.

seriously, a conservative journalist is describing this group as anti-fascist instead of saying that they call themselves that?

Best way to stop bullies is to fight back and beat them to a puddle.

R.I.C.O. (or whichever appropriate federal tools) needs to be used to deal with them and other violent groups. There is no excuse for this to continue without some pushback.

As we face a future of conflict with antifa, lets remember why we are WHO we are, Republicans:
“...Thanksgiving, currently celebrated on the fourth Thursday in November by federal legislation in 1941, has been an annual tradition in the United States by presidential proclamation of Abraham Lincoln< Republican President of the United States since 1863 and by state legislation since the Founding Fathers of the United States. Historically, Thanksgiving has traditionally been a celebration of the blessings of the year, including the harvest.[41] What Americans call the “Holiday Season” generally begins with Thanksgiving.[42]

A couple of thoughts...

- Leave the video up. It can be used as evidence, and to let everyone know who they are

- With Sessions gone, maybe the new guy will go after these terrorists. Sessions would have arrested Carlson for interfering...

“Auntie Fay” doesn’t pull this crap in any other state that allows the Castle Doctrine.

Wonder why?

So Twitter wants to censor the video. They don’t want us to see what the Antifa crowd did to Tucker’s wife, and home. Famous fellow that Tucker. Suspending Antifa, or whatever flag this group of Commies flies under is just a means to reduce the fireworks. That benefits them, and nobody else.

I would think somebody as famous as Tucker would live in a gated community. At least that would provide some protection.
