This is the behavior that you get when Democrats claim that harassing republicans at restaurants or randomly in public is ok. Don Lemon the other day claimed that it was a constitutional right to harass conservatives. He claimed that these people are not acting like a mob. Mob: “To Crowd around (someone) in an unruly and excitable way in order to admire or attack them.” And then these same Democrats claim that Trump is causing the violent political environment.
However, police responded Wednesday night to the terrified cries from a mother in hiding who was being harassed by an angry liberal mob. Their action clearly went way beyond “peaceful protesting”.
Tucker Carlson’s wife took the brunt of the Democrat’s order for mobilization Wednesday night when Antifa came upon Carlson’s home.
“I called my wife,” Carlson told The Washington Post in a phone interview. “She had been in the kitchen alone getting ready to go to dinner and she heard pounding on the front door and screaming. … Someone started throwing himself against the front door and actually cracked the front door.”
His wife, thinking it was a home invasion, locked herself in the pantry and called 911, Carlson said. The couple have four children, but none were home at the time.
“Tucker Carlson, we are outside your home,” one person could be heard saying in the since-deleted video. The person, using a bullhorn, accused Carlson of “promoting hate” and “an ideology that has led to thousands of people dying.”
“We want you to know, we know where you sleep at night,” the person concluded, before leading the group to chant, “Tucker Carlson, we will fight! We know where you sleep at night!”
“It wasn’t a protest. It was a threat,” said Carlson, who is often denounced by critics, particularly liberal ones, for his rhetoric about immigrants and minorities on his Fox News show. “They weren’t protesting anything specific that I had said. They weren’t asking me to change anything. They weren’t protesting a policy or advocating for legislation. … They were threatening me and my family and telling me to leave my own neighborhood in the city that I grew up in.”
“How can you go out for dinner and leave the kids at home at this point?” he said. “If they’re talking about pipe bombs … how do you live like that?” “I don’t think I should be threatened in our house,” he said. “I think I should fight back, and I plan to. I’m not going to be bullied and intimidated.”
This is why we need to end the polarization and have our political leaders at least start acting civil. Trump and the Republicans have condemned this behavior before. Trump tried to unify everyone after the synagogue shooting. And now that the Democrats have won The House, Pelosi claims they will start acting more civil. But either way, this attack is another example of the extremists that Democrats are creating.
