Tucker Carlson is a racist a*hole, but this is just wrong

https://www.washingtonpost.com/nation/2018/11/08/they-were-threatening-me-my-family-tucker-carlsons-home-targeted-by-protesters/?noredirect=on&utm_term=.20a179ebaac6

‘They were threatening me and my family’: Tucker Carlson’s home targeted by protesters
‘We know where you sleep at night’: Protesters surround Tucker Carlson’s home
A group of protesters gathered outside the Northwest D.C. home of Fox News host Tucker Carlson on Nov. 7. (Drea Cornejo/The Washington Post)


Boycott advertisers, but physically threatening someone at his home, with his family present will not produce the results the protesters hope for.

You can come here if you want, do you like mayo or mustard on your sandwiches? I suppose you guys will be hungry by the time you get here.

Plus, we don't serve alcoholic beverages, so you'll have to settle for Diet Pepsi or plain water. From the tap.

Do you like dogs? No children here, just a couple of dogs. But they like to play though.

I can't stand Tucker Carlson, but I wouldn't advocate scaring the shit out of anyone's kids to try to make yourselves feel better. C'mon! You think Tucker is going to change his stance on anything one bit due to an angry protest outside his home?

This only further inflames the alt-right. It edges things closer to violence between the Proud Boys and the Antifa types. There's no solution there.

It is rather touching that you have so much sympathy for racists though. Fuckboy Carlson shouldn't put his children in that position. There are consequences to actions. Give shit out, get shit in return.

Nice ad hominem! Shows you probably have nothing of value to actually contribute.

Fuck what Tucker Carlson thinks, fuck what the alt-right thinks. Why are you so concerned about what they think anyway? Why do you have sympathy for racists? Come clean, it's okay.

Bless your heart, dear.

May not supposed to be, but, regrettably, it is who we are now. Just read the comments in this thread for confirmation of that :

Boo [effing] hoo. I don't care. If only he'd become a progressive Democrat, this wouldn't happen to him or his family. He deserved it. He probably staged it on his own. I don't believe it happened, but so what if it did?

Et cetera, et cetera.

So yeah, it is who we, as progressives, are now. Not all participate, but most support this kind of stuff (or even worse) Get used to it.

By all means, please call it out and denounce it, loudly and forcefully. But be prepared to be called a Nazi for doing so and to be banned from progressive forums. Or you could stay silent and thus be complicit. Or you could join in. Or you could leave. At the end of the day, those are your only choices.

He spews racism like he's a fountain. He's also the same person who thinks cops should use black folks for target practice (Philando Castile), and oh if they get murdered because the cops are SCARED so fucking what. Feel sorry for that? Uh NOPE.



Karma is a beyotch IF this story is even true, because he put his family into harms way, but then again, I don't believe most of the shit coming out of a FAUX news person's lying, racist mouth (Shep Smith/Juan Williams are the exceptions, & Sometimes Chris Wallace shows signs of having some decency).

If we condone this kind of behavior because we disagree with their politics, then we have to accept that what their side did because they believe Dr. Blasey Ford was a policital hack who was lying is also acceptable.

I know exactly what happened - and it is not the kind of tactics we ought to be using.

Standing outside a person's house, shouting veiled threats, "“we know where you sleep at night,” and, “We’ll be back! We won’t tell you when!” is not an appropriate response to a political difference.

141. So should every literal murderer's family be targets of murder? Are we justified in getting every

drug dealer's kid hooked on drugs?

Just to be clear, I don't think this would be justified if that piece of shit Tucker lived alone. He has a legal right to spread his racism and bullshit on that bullshit propaganda station that's been a thorn in our national discourse for 20 years until someone decides that he doesn't. People, however, don't have a legal right to follow him home and commit acts of criminal trespassing, disturbing the peace, intimidation, communicating threats, etc. The fact that he has a wife and young children only makes it worse.

Are you all 10 years old or something? This isn't how you beat the ideology of hatred. You go at it with knowledge and reason.

As an aside, if some clowns holed my wife up in the kitchen cupboard because they didn't like my politics I'd knock their goddamned heads off.

One of the problems in letting tuckers shit go unchecked is that his evil spawn will take on the same opinions of the father... perhaps if they see that people hate their foather for his vile opinions and they will be shunned they'll eithefr shut the fuck up when they are adults or they will change their opinions

It's not my thing (I live in DC and have seen him out and about a time or two) but if you want to heckle him on the sidewalk or at the gym or whatever, be my guest. He's a giant, racist douchebag (or pretends to be) and deserves no respect. But leave a man be in and near his home.

sponsors are and don't care. He's toxic, but he's found his already toxic audience. And I wouldn't heckle him. I'm saying if that's someone's particular jam, have at. Disturbing a man's home, however, is fucked up. Full stop. It's extra fucked up when he has four small children.

Anyone who can't see that can't be reasoned with. We have laws of war that at least are supposed to prevent this kind of shit in times of literal pitched conflict.

People claiming to be "Antifa" are either anarchists who just like chaos for chaos sake, or I suspect agent provocateurs of sorts meant to make the left look bad.

We're talking about people who claim they need to wear masks all the time. I mean....why? If I'm going to protest, you're going to see my face.

We didn't hear anything about "Antifa" until Trump was elected and after that, any event where there are left leaning protesters involved where there is any sort of chaos or violence, it always comes as a result of "Antifa."

It just reeks so much of bullshit.

Or do they just have a website?

There are real people who dress up in masks and create havoc for reasons unknown (IMHO most likely either because they like chaos or they are there to make liberals look violent) but as far as these groups existing as legitimate, real organizations advancing liberal interests......they don't.

128. They aren't liberals and don't claim to be.

The real false flag isn't the existence of Antifa itself. It's the association of liberals and Democrats with Antifa, when there is basically no overlap. If you read their literature, you will see that they are critical of liberals, and that liberal society will allow fascist organizing that they find unacceptable. They also believe voting is useless and do not advocate for Democrats.

To answer your questions about their authenticity, this investigative reporter and newspaper interviewed some and believes they are real.

https://www.myajc.com/news/national-govt--politics/ajc-watchdog-who-are-trump-troublemakers/BEPqz8EiEkzZ5MPamlH5cJ/

That article is linked to others about their disruption of a Stone Mountain rally. You may hit a paywall if you click too many.

I do not know if they have regular meetings, as I am not a member nor have I attempted to contact them. Most of what the Atlanta group does is mundane: doxxing racist organizers and tearing down racist flyers they find around the city. But the occasional "direct action" they engage in makes a big ruckus and is thus easier to find on Google.

The rather mundane content of much of their actions and writings also gives me a gut feeling that they are real. It is just too much slow and steady work over the years to be a false flag operation, and not be exposed by now. The Atlanta group will link to other Antifa twitter feeds in other cities, and thus I assume those other groups are real as well. Occasionally they will accuse a given feed of being false flag as well.

If you believe this group is fake, do let me know your reasons. I would feel foolish if that were the case, but I would not want to be on here pushing false info.

138. Again, it's not that there aren't people who go to events and say they are "Antifa."

I just don't see them as a legitimate organization and the fact they shroud themselves in so much secrecy about everything (hiding names and faces, etc.) to the point where you can't even directly verbally communicate with them.

And that makes me question what ulterior motives they have in doing whatever it is they do, and who might be promoting them.

I suppose they could just be legitimate anarchists who hate everybody and love chaos. But their name has been used so much by the right in associating the left with violence that I wonder about certain events they are associated with.

And this being Tucker Carlson, creator of the Daily Caller which is notorious for spreading misleading or outright false propaganda, I am especially circumspect here. The MAGABomber was an embarrassment for the right and an attempt to "both sides" political violence could be used to minimize that embarrassment.

145. The Klan were and are real, and hid their identities.

It's not the dumbest thing for them to do if they are engaging in criminal activities. I am not attempting to draw a moral equivalency between Antifa and the Klan, but rather am countering the point of anonymous = fake. Also, that reporter was able to communicate with them, and as with government leakers and those in the criminal underworld, the reporter protected their anonymity.

While Antifa argues that their direct actions are "community self-defense", the law views some of them as criminal, and their fascist targets might want to hurt them, so they have every reason to hide their identities.

And they've saved many a friend of mine from a beating at the hands of neo nazis, and protected those of who have lived in parts of the country dealing with this scourge long before Trump was a glimmer in the eye of the Republican party and while many on here have had their thumbs up their asses still believing in "bipartisanship" and "going high when they go low".

159. Admittedly, their existence is inconvenient for us for two reasons.

1. Many Americans, and the press, only are capable of putting political actors into two bins: left/liberal and right/conservative. Antifa get put into the left/liberal bin by the press and those who have a motive to do so.

2. In America, political violence has the opposite effect on public opinion as the effect desired by the violent actor, and this works in concert with #1 above. Right wing violence helps us and hurts Republicans. Left wing violence (less common nowadays) hurts us and helps Republicans.

But because it is inconvenient for us, does not mean we should not acknowledge the truth. I read a RW board where the members are quite detached from reality. You've probably heard of it. In their world, every white nationalist who commits violence is a false flag actor or a patsy, including the recent pipe bomber. They just will not accept reality when it is politically inconvenient for them. I do not want us to be like that.

If they are not an outright front group of agents provocateurs then they have been co-opted/radicalized by enemy agents.

NON VIOLENCE SHOULD BE A DEFINING CHARACTERISTIC OF ANY VALID PROTEST.
IF YOU PEOPLE COMMITTING OR ADVOCATING FOR VIOLENT ACTS, THEY ARE THE DE FACTO ENEMY AND SHOULD BE DENOUNCED, FULL STOP.

This is a moldie oldie from the fascist's handbook of social engineering. Not only are you able to plant fear in law abiding leftists.

Sorry, but many of us have heard of them long before Trump, and seen a lot of the good shit they've done protecting areas and communities that actually have had to deal with neo-nazis. Both here in the US and in other countries.

But by all means, continue asking the nazis and racists nicely to stop being so mean and beating and murdering people. Let me know how that works out for you.

I've got a couple of accounts captured - in one tweet they're claiming that Tucker Carlson is an innocent victim, the next tweet they're threatening and harassing Jim Acosta. You can't claim one and then do the opposite, that is blatant hypocrisy.

107. When I was in high school, some students committed vandalism on my behalf.

I was, and am, gay. There were some other students who didn't like that, and who threatened me with physical harm. Some female students who I didn't even know vandalized businesses of the parents of those students who threatened me.

Also, I did know "antifa" of that time - anti-racist skinheads and other anti-racist activists. They offered to defend me physically, if needed. They were prepared to put themselves on the line - I appreciated that.

One of the students who threatened me soon thereafter approached me. While I don't recall exactly what he said to me, he said something to the effect that he didn't want to be associated with the threats that were made against me.

To the extent that the cost of being openly racist and fascist can be raised very high, fewer people will do it. I'm not advocating for what those activists did outside Tucker Carlson's home. I'm saying that some people will choose their privacy and home over being an asshole.

I question whether the official existence of antifa at all since the RWNJ contingent constantly refers to them...sounds like propaganda to me. In light of the fact that our own WH is peddling doctored videos....If video of this even exists or existed, it may have been staged. So, IF this thing actually occurred, and I have my doubts...while I’m all for publicly calling out fascists and racists. I do not support this when there are kids in the picture. That’s frightening as hell...they love their dad even though we abhor him and all he stands for. They only know him as their dad.

I find it pretty easy to predict the coming rise of "left-wing extremism," including armed left-wing activity, in the period ahead. There are organized, right-wing movements creating the political grounds from which bombers and shooters are emerging.

I will not condemn the idea of confrontation with fascists and racists.

Prior to "antifa," there was Anti-Racist Action, John Brown Anti-Klan Committee, and I'm sure other anti-fascist groups who were committed to depriving freedom of action to fascists.

There are numerous Facebook groups, for instance, that refer to themselves as "antifa" and serve as hubs of organizing against fascists.

They're calling upon the imagery of the anti-Nazi German group Anti-Fascist Action.

Is there a single, official group called "Antifa?" No, there is not.

I do think there is such an entity as "antifa" - at least in my area.

I don't care where on the political spectrum this kind of thuggery and extremism currently comes from, we have a duty to stop it.

I'd remind those who disagree that aggressively hostile extremists are changeable and even frequently interchangeable. People who would block off Carlson's street and vandalize his home while issuing death threats today could be turned against someone you support another time.

The fascist and communist parties in Europe around this time last century were always trying to seduce the others' followers to themselves, and often succeeding. That's why "socialist' was tucked into the archconservative Nazi party's name and how some who started as zealots on the far left became jackbooted right wing thugs.
