Fox News host Tucker Carlson is the newest target of radical left wing group Antifa.
TMZ reported that Carlson’s home came under siege Wednesday night while he was at work, as his wife was left alone to fend for herself.
Tucker’s wife, Susie, called police around 6:30 PM ET to report a mob that had formed outside the Carlson home in D.C. Several people in the crowd started banging on the front door.
A mob has gathered outside Tucker Carlson’s home demanding his family leave DC because he is a "racist scumbag."
"Every night you spread fear into homes — we remind you that you are not safe either"
Tucker has 4 children.

Now, Tucker is responding, saying what happened at his house was not a “protest,” it was a “threat.”
Fox News host Tucker Carlson said Smash Racism DC’s demonstration outside his Washington home Wednesday night was a threat to him and his family.
“It wasn’t a protest. It was a threat,” Carlson told The Washington Post. He added a video shared online by Smash Racism — since deleted — shows a woman saying she wanted to “bring a pipe bomb” to his house.
Demonstrators also blocked both ends of his street and carried signs with his home address printed on them, according to Carlson.
The Fox News host and founder of the Daily Caller was not home at the time of the mob’s arrival because he was preparing for his live evening show at the studio. But his wife was home and barricaded herself in the house’s pantry because she feared a home invasion.
“I called my wife. She had been in the kitchen alone getting ready to go to dinner and she heard pounding on the front door and screaming,” Carlson said. “Someone started throwing himself against the front door and actually cracked the front door.”
None of Carlson’s four children were home at the time of the incident.
Smash Racism DC is a far-left, Antifa-affiliated (anti-fascism) group that has been linked to other demonstrations targeting Republican figures, including confronting Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, and his wife at a Washington restaurant last month.
In the since-deleted video posted to Twitter, the group can be heard chanting, “Tucker Carlson, we will fight! We know where you sleep at night!”
“Tucker Carlson, we are outside your home to protest … fascism and racism,” a demonstrator can be heard. “You promote hate.”
The group’s Twitter account, where the video was originally posted, was suspended as of Thursday morning.
