Press silent about mob attacking Tucker Carlson's wife and kids

USA Today reported, "An Antifa angry mob gathered outside of Fox News anchor Tucker Carlson's home on Wednesday evening.

"The anti-fascists group, possibly associated with Smash Racism D.C., chanted 'Tucker Carlson, we will fight. We know where you sleep at night' outside of Carlson's Washington home, according to Fox News. In a video posted online, the group can also be heard saying, 'Racist scumbag, leave town!'

"Carlson's wife, Susie, was home alone at the time. He told Fox she locked herself into a pantry and called police."

The American media needs to stand as one to this bullying -- this intimidation -- this attempt to silence a critic of the Washington Establishment.

Instead, we get a lot of self-righteous yammering about Jimmy the Jerk Acosta, who refused to give up the microphone and let someone else ask a question at a White House press conference. He brushed aside the White House intern whose assignment was to hand the mic off.

He failed to play by the rules. He lost his press privileges.

Michael Goodwin sees Acosta as the worst of a rotten crew.

Goodwin wrote, "There was a time not long ago when young journalists were taught not to become the story. Apparently, many news organizations have flipped that lesson on its head.

"But we are witnessing something more insidious here than media trash talk. Plain and simple, we are watching expressions of personal hatred.

"Yes, it’s true that most journalists lean far left and their bias sticks out like so many sore thumbs. That’s been true for a long time, but political bias is an insufficient explanation for the Jim Acostas of our time.

"They hate Trump. They really, really hate him. There’s nothing professional about it."

Goodwin paints with too broad a brush.

Major Garrett and Mark Knoller, both of CBS, are good reporters. Most reporters covering the White House are good although they increasingly allow their biases slip. I blame editors who fail to rein them in.

Acosta losing his press privileges sends the right message.

The real threat to free speech was the mob attacking Carlson's home and family while Dad was not there to defend them. Carlson no longer is a reporter but if we give license to a mob to go after him, then we give license to other mobs to go after Rachel Maddow and the rest of President Trump's critics.

This silence also gives license to the same mob to go after commentators who do not hate President Trump enough.

The Bill of Rights is a pact between the two sides of the political spectrum. The agreement is one of mutual respect for rights. Once broken, we enable violence.

I urge every talk show host on cable to condemn the mob, if only for self-preservation.

Carlson responded to the mob.

  1. I am now approaching the age of people I cared for in my first full-time job as ab orderly in a rest home. Most were physically impaired but fairly mentally clear. In talking with those who read papers (this was after all, during the 1970s) or watched the news, I found most were fearful of the times. Student riots, changing social norms, fashion craziness, the birth of the sex-change industry, etc., etc., troubled them all.

    I am now feeling the same about such matters, and I am concerned that things may not rectify or moderate. While I fear becoming a victim of fashionable violence, I also am relieved that I am of the age that I am. Like my former patients, I fear that things are going to get really bad.

    C'est la vie.

    1. To continue to be or to not continue to be, after flesh container ceases to function, that is the question.

      Every body does it.

      No body ever can inform any other body after having done it.

      No body not yet having done it can know.

      Death.

      End of fleshly experience, confirmed.

      End of actual existence, or not, confirmation pending on the former, not possible if the latter.

      What to do whilst awaiting death?

      Same answer as what to do whilst living fleshly life.

      Determine, define, discover, decide who you are and do as you know who you are.

      Flesh imposes neccessities that, when not met, death ensues.

      Life presents opportunities, which, constrained by said fleshly actual neccessities, define limitations so designed, created and imposed upon.

      I am, therefore, I think.

      I am, therefore, I feel.

      I am, therefore, being flesh contained, experience sense sensations most confining.

      Mind + Flesh + Spirit, each affecting the other, with the who who you have determined you are deciding which you can choose options available and which must be complied with in narrow options fashion.

      Pleasing or displeasing, death inches ever closer to the when that is always experienced as now. Right fucking.......now.

      It's the design.

  2. I think Bill O'Reilly has been very prescient in saying the media will collapse after Trump leaves office. Their only viable model for revenue is click bait. All of this unhinged behavior by Acosta and the other jackals is a stunt to drive internet and news traffic. They are no longer a viable means for disseminating reliable information to people.

    2. Wish it were that simple. This is a globalist effort by a coalesced media that has been bought by a cabal of globalists.

      Trump is just the speedbump; the corrupt pols are pissed that their payoffs will be delayed until Trump is out of office in 2024
      After all, the Russians paid 150 million dollars for a president they did not get.

      The elite are pissed.

  4. This isn't the first time the Left have done something like this. Back in 2010 busloads of union protesters show up at this man's front lawn. The reason we know this is because the journalist Nina Easton lived right next door and was home at the time.

    What's really behind SEIU's Bank of America protests?
    By Nina Easton May 19, 2010: 6:15 AM ET
    Last Sunday [5/16/2010], on a peaceful, sun-crisp afternoon, our toddler finally napping upstairs, my front yard exploded with 500 screaming, placard-waving strangers on a mission to intimidate my neighbor, Greg Baer. Baer is deputy general counsel for corporate law at Bank of America (BAC, Fortune 500), a senior executive based in Washington, D.C. And that -- in the minds of the organizers at the politically influential Service Employees International Union and a Chicago outfit called National Political Action -- makes his family fair game.
    Waving signs denouncing bank "greed," hordes of invaders poured out of 14 school buses, up Baer's steps, and onto his front porch. As bullhorns rattled with stories of debtor calls and foreclosed homes, Baer's teenage son Jack -- alone in the house -- locked himself in the bathroom. "When are they going to leave?" Jack pleaded when I called to check on him.

  5. These people acting out are nothing more than dupes for the Democrat complex. Most couldn't give a cognizant answer to why they're even there. Their puppeteers, I'm afraid, hope that injury or worse occurs to someone at these little outbursts. If this happens things are going to escalate very quickly in this cold war being run by the Left.

    Everyday it seems the Left inches closer to being totally willing to destroy the country if they don't get what they want. And the Liberal media are playing an integral part in this whole affair.

    1. You are not the one of the bright bulbs.

      1. 12 gauge, combo pump + semi.

      2. Birdshot up front and 00 buck after, if things persist.

      3. Custom the stock as suits the missus, and whatever else comes to mind and is, obviously, not unlawful.

      Save the mag fed lovely for the helter skelter.

      Dumbasses banging on the door is not the helter skelter.

      Nor are things that go bump in the night.

      Birdshot directed low, not center mass nor high, will tell the tale pretty quick.

      Follow up if needed with additionals.

      This, or a dependable revolver(s), suitable for intended user(s) and kept discretely availible to hand, again, not unlawfully.

      Caliber of choice is either .38 or .44, with the former a no brainer and the latter if she has a naturally firm grip. Custom the grip(s) and you're set.

      Brighten up.

    3. Ah, the typo nazi, being drawn to the ever searched for typo, pounces in a state of mindless, meager, meaningless fake authoritative expertease, all for what purpose?

      Not to offer opinion, however thoughtful or thoughtless, upon subject at hand.

      Not to ponder subject at hand.

      Not to offer counter opinion upon subject at hand.

      No, this reaction has a clearly intended purpose of mental masterbatory nul.

      And posted as any mouse, though whom might respond on this subject in such a meaningless manner?

      The preperations to defend one's abode is the subject raised by the original comment and responded to by me.

      Your reaction is, in it's absence of substance relevant, worthless.

      Try again.

    4. A pump 20 gauge cut down to legal standards with a hand grip and no stock otherwise is enough. A 20 gauge can be fired by just about anyone in almost any position as my wife now knows.

    5. Here are the relevant factors, presentedvas questions to be asked and answered:

      1. Is law enforcement response availible in a timely manner?

      2. Is threat to life reasonably perceived as being now, or imminent?

      3. Is the will and resolve to defend against threat of death present in person or persons being subjected to said fear of being murdered?

      If threat of death is present, resolve to not submit is present, law enforcement response is not timely or availible, then what purpose is served by utilizing less than effective means to prevent murderous attempt(s)?

      20 gauge just does not meet the specs.

      12 gauge birdshot barely meets the specs, thus, birdshot leadoff and followup with 00 buck, birdshot being the courtesy of a painful heads up, asshole(s).

      There is no purpose in citizens' criteria for ending threat of death attack to be different than law enforcement criteria and training.

      There are a few common sense techniques to utilize for those concerned with handling 12 gauge, those so concerned should have sufficient common sense ability to figure them out.

      You might as well load .38 shot shell in your snubby.

  9. People like Tucker are very vulnerable because they live in lawless Democrat shitholes. I'm sure his place is nice, but nobody from the commie mayor on down will lift a fingure to help a conservative. If one of these lowlife scum were harmed, a jury of welfare bums and crooked prosecutor would crucify Tucker.

    1. From Thomas Lifson at American Thinker, quoting the Washington Post (I will not link to their article) -
      “DC police say that they arrived “a few minutes” after being called, but there is no indication that any arrests were made for trespassing, damage to the home’s door, or making terroristic threats.”

      As MKelly said above, DC is a democrat shithole, so nothing will happen to the mobsters.

    2. That is what I hear/read Lardmaster. The police are investigating the incident. Few consequences causes more violence which can easily escalate.
      Tucker is a hunter, so he may have firearms available, but they may not be accessible nor does his wife know how to use them. She retreated to a pantry and no mention of her having a firearm, just incase. . .

  13. They don't hate Trump as much as they are insanely jealous of him. They think they should be President. Trump did it as a non-politician, but they are the ones who REALLy should be. If only they had thought of it first! They we're stepped over. Because they're "smahrt. They can handle things. Not like everybody says..."

  14. "then we give license to other mobs to go after Rachel Maddow and the rest of President Trump's critics."

    But they won't and everyone knows it. Part of anarcho-tyranny is that the state will victimize those who are easiest to victimize. If because of cowardice, softness and decadence you won't fight, physically fight, then someone will be along shortly, from the inside or outside or both, to rob you of everything you have. Antifa works for the government, the System, the establishment, the Deep State, call it what you will, and is thus protected by the police. You'll have to fight the police, antifa and the state at the same time, you'll have to make the threat of anarchy palpable before you can force the establishment to rein in their brownshirts.

    1. Correct, chances are we won't act as the Left does. However the Left underestimates what CAN happen under the right circumstances. I have seen it happen on a small scale at a pep rally and not until someone was accidentally injured did the "MOB" come to its senses. And in that instance there were no feelings of bitterness as many deplorable now harbor.
