(Natural News) In the age of POTUS Donald Trump, the Democratic Party is fast becoming the American Communist Party as it is taken over by the extreme Left.
One by one notable conservatives, Republicans, and supporters of the president are being targeted by anarchist mobs who don’t so much align with the Democrats per se but who are instead working to remake the party in their image. One of the latest conservative figures forced to deal with a Leftist mob is Fox News host Tucker Carlson.
As The Daily Caller — a news site he co-founded — reported, the mob showed up at his Washington, D.C.-area home Wednesday evening, going so far onto his property that some of them approached his front door and rang the doorbell. His wife, Susie, was home alone at the time.
Later, the group “Smash Racism DC” posted footage of video on Twitter depicting one of the leaders of the mob leading the rest in a chant, “Racist scumbag, leave town!,” and “Tucker Carlson, we will fight. We know where you sleep at night!”
In another video, they chanted, “No borders! No walls! No USA at all!” — a familiar one.
The group then posted a picture of a sign with the Carlson’s address on it to Twitter as well, with this warning: “Tucker Carlson, you cannot hide from the people you hurt with your rhetoric, your lies, your hate,” adding the hashtag, #KnockKnockTucker.
The Daily Caller noted further that that kind of threatening treatment was finally enough for the social media platform:
Twitter removed the videos and tweet with Carlson’s address Wednesday night after an inquiry from The Daily Caller News Foundation.
The left-wing group’s Twitter account was suspended shortly after midnight on Thursday.
Fox News CEO Suzanne Scott and president Jay Wallace released a statement Thursday denouncing the mob’s actions.
‘This has to stop’
“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.
“We as a nation have become far too intolerant of different points of view. Recent events across our country clearly highlight the need for a more civil, respectful, and inclusive national conversation. Those of us in the media and in politics bear a special obligation to all Americans, to find common ground,” she added.
Former Fox News host and Carlson colleague Megyn Kelly also tweeted her support for him and his family as well as her resentment of the Left-wing mob mentality.
“This has to stop. Who are we? What are we becoming? @TuckerCarlson is tough & can handle a lot, but he does not deserve this. His family does not deserve this. It’s stomach-turning.”

The mob that ‘confronted’ Carlson’s home also previously shouted down Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, at a D.C. restaurant during the confirmation hearings for Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh. (Related: Report: Far-Left groups tied to George Soros bussing in mobs to disrupt Kavanaugh vote.)
Wittingly or unwittingly, if you voted for a Democrat during the midterms, you voted to support this kind of behavior. Whether the ‘mainstream’ Democratic Party wants these hard-core anarchists among their ranks isn’t a mystery, however, because no Democrat has denounced their behavior in any serious way. In fact, the real crazies like Rep. Maxine Waters of California have actually called for their hard Left supporters to confront conservatives and POTUS Trump supporters.
“This has to stop,” says Megan Kelly. Yes, it does. But it won’t. The people attracted to these hard-Left groups are the foot soldiers of a spreading anti-American movement that seeks to sow chaos, violence, and lawlessness.
Many of them are the same ones who pledged to become “ungovernable” after POTUS Trump’s victory. And that’s what they are becoming.
