Protesters tar­get home of Fox News’ Carl­son

Centre Daily Times - - Stay Connected -

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.

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 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.
