Megyn Kelly defends Tucker Carlson after his home is targeted by an Antifa mob as a criminal investigation is launched into the extreme Twitter feed and rabble that gathered outside

UK Daily Mail  . . . "The group of about 20 from Smash Racism DC, descended on the conservative commentator's home, while Tucker's wife Susan, was alone when she heard the commotion outside.
"She locked herself in the pantry and called police at 6.30pm as the mob screamed and banged on her front door.
"The protesters chanted slogans such as 'we will fight, we know where you sleep at night'
" 'I called my wife. 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,' Carlson told The Washington Post."

From a Washington Post interview with one of these protestors:  . . . "One of the protesters told The Post the group did not intend to be violent and did not attempt to break into Carlson’s home. The protester, who spoke on the condition of anonymity out of fear of retaliation, said that the group wanted to make Carlson uncomfortable.
“ 'The reason for this tactic is to bring the pain that is felt every day among marginalized people who have been victim of right-wing politics to Tucker and make it personal,” the protester said. “He has explicitly made far-right politics go mainstream. That is what he has done with his television show and platform.”
"The person said the group did not plan to protest in front of Carlson’s home in the dark, but failed to account for last weekend’s daylight saving time change.

" 'He said Trump and others on the right consistently describe protests by anyone on the left as violent and out of control, whatever the facts — so the group is unconcerned if their more extreme tactics make Democrats look bad."
