Stephen Colbert slams protest at Tucker Carlson's home as 'monstrous cowardice'

Tucker Carlson targeted for harassment by left-wing group that went after Ted Cruz and his wife

A leftist mob known for disrupting the private lives of Trump supporters launched an attack late Wednesday on Fox News host Tucker Carlson, chanting in front of his home, "We know where you sleep at night".

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".

According to a police report, a group of demonstrators gathered outside Carlson's Northwest Washington home Wednesday night.

The Post also reported that the Fox News host's "wife, thinking it was a home invasion, locked herself in the pantry and called 911, Carlson said". In a tweet, Smash Racism D.C. said Carlson spreads "fear into our homes" every night and would be reminded "that you are not safe either".

The group's video of the protest on Twitter has since been deleted - and Twitter suspended the group's account.

Carlson told the Washington Post, "It wasn't a protest". The Facebook video was also taken down, but the page is still up.

Carlson said he was at the Fox News bureau in Washington working on his opening monologue when neighbors texted him about the commotion outside his home.

"I think Tucker is a awful influence on modern America but that doesn't justify harassing him at home".

"I met a woman who didn't leave the house for months because she was afraid of being picked up by ICE and never seeing her USA citizen kids and husband again".

"Fighting Tucker Carlson's ideas is an American right", Colbert wrote.

"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.

"Who are we? What are we becoming?".

Admonished by Saletan to not make Carlson "the victim", Yglesias responded, "I didn't break his door and I agree that he's very bad".

Various public figures, including Megyn Kelly, said things like this need to stop.

"His family does not deserve this", she added.

CNN's Brian Stelter condemned the protest in his nightly newsletter, images of which he shared on Twitter. Carlson said. "If they're talking about pipe bombs. how do you live like that?"

"Get a permit for a protest outside Carlson's office if you want", Stelter wrote. His wife Susan was home alone.

"I dont think I should be threatened in our house", he said.
