Protestors gathered around the DC home of Fox News host Tucker Carlson Wed. night chanting threats like ‘We know where you sleep at night’ and ‘You are not safe.’ Carlson was not home at the time but his wife was and reportedly locked herself in the pantry and called police. A group calling themselves ‘Smash Racism, DC’ posted a video of their protest outside Carlson’s house. The group was the same that claimed responsibility for shouting Ted Cruz out of a DC-area restaurant in Sept.

“We’re going to fight, Tucker Carlson, we know where you sleep in the night,” chanted the group.
