Attacks on high-profile President Trump supporters have sadly become common for progressive mobs who believe screaming and shouting — and outright physical violence at times — is justified for expressing their political opposition in America.
Conservative Fox News host Tucker Carlson recently became a target when a group of Antifa thugs chanted outside his D.C. home, demanded he leave the neighborhood, yelled threats, and accused him of being a racist. They even rammed the front door of his house so hard it cracked.
His terrified wife, alone inside, locked herself in the pantry and called the police. The mob was broken up, but they left their symbol spray-painted on his driveway as a lasting message that he didn’t have a right to exist in Antifa’s own — rather frightening – version of America.
“Tucker Carlson, we will fight! We know where you sleep at night!” a group of about 20 people had chanted.
Now we’ve learned that Carlson’s wife was not the first member in the family to be the victim of a vicious, politically fueled attacked. His 19-year-old daughter was subjected to horrific, brutal behavior just a few weeks ago, Carlson said.
The Fox News host revealed on Twitter that, “Last month one of my children was attacked by a stranger at dinner. For her sake, I was hoping to keep the incident private. It’s now being politicized by the Left.”
Here’s his account (with a few profane slurs censored for younger audiences):
“On October 12, I had dinner with two of my children and some family friends at the Farmington Country Club in Charlottesville, Virginia. Toward the end of the meal, my 19-year-old daughter went to the bathroom with a friend. On their way back through the bar, a middle aged man stopped my daughter and asked if she was sitting with Tucker Carlson. My daughter had never seen the man before. She answered: ‘That’s my dad,’ and pointed to me. The man responded, “Are you Tucker’s wh---?’ He then called her a ‘f------ c---.’
My daughter returned to the table in tears. She soon left the table and the club. My son, who is also a student, went into the bar to confront the man. I followed. My son asked the man if he’d called his sister a ‘wh---’ and a ‘c---.’ The man admitted he had, and again become [sic] profane. My son threw a glass of red wine in the man’s face and told him to leave the bar, which he soon did.
Immediately after the incident, I described these events to the management of the Farmington Country Club. The club spent more than three weeks investigating the incident. Last week, they revoked the man’s membership and threw him out of the club.
I love my children. It took enormous self-control not to beat the man with a chair, which is what I wanted to do. I think any father can understand the overwhelming rage and shock that I felt seeing my teenage daughter attacked by a stranger. But I restrained myself. I did not assault this man, and neither did my son. That is a lie. Nor did I know the man as gay or Latino, not that it would have mattered. What happened on October 13 has nothing to do with identity politics. It was a grotesque violation of decency. I’ve never seen anything like it in my life.”
