The social media account for the left-wing group that targeted Senator Ted Cruz (R-Texas) and his wife for harassment during their private dinner has posted video of their next victim: Tucker Carlson.
"We will fight! We know where you sleep at night!”
The account, "Smash Capitalism," posted videos of their left-wing activists attempting to harass the popular Fox News host at his home in Washington D.C.
"Activists ring doorbell, hold protest at the Washington DC area home of @TuckerCarlson, racist, sexist, bigoted FOX News personality," the account tweeted. "So far no one has opened the door."
"Every night you spread fear into our homes—fear of the other, fear of us, and fear of them," the account added. "Each night you tell us we are not safe. Tonight you’re reminded that we have a voice. Tonight, we remind you that you are not safe either."

The left-wing group had previously posted video of their harassment of Cruz and his wife at a D.C. restaurant. Protesters screamed and yelled at the political couple until they ostensibly left the restaurant.
Later it was revealed that the restaurant owners let them back in to finish their dinner in peace after the protesters left.
“No borders! No walls! No USA at all!” they chanted in another video.
"You can’t hide from those you hurt, Tucker," they added.
Tucker Carlson has been spewing nonstop hate and lies about he migrant caravan. He also has close ties to white supremacists: https://t.co/jMbQJk3o6D— Smash Racism DC (@SmashRacismDC) November 8, 2018

"Who are we? What are we becoming?"
The stunt inspired outrage on social media that the left-wing group would target a Fox News host and post it on Twitter without any repercussion. Former Fox News host Megyn Kelly excoriated the protest.
"This has to stop. Who are we?" she responded. "What are we becoming? @TuckerCarlson is tough & can handle a lot, but he does not deserve this."
"His family does not deserve this," she added. "It’s stomach-turning."
"Reprehensible" and "completely unacceptable"
The incident was addressed by joint statement from Suzanne Scott, CEO of FOX News, and Jay Wallace, President of FOX News:
"The incident that took place at Tucker’s home last night was reprehensible," the statement read. "The violent threats and intimidation tactics toward him and his family are completely unacceptable. We as a nation have become far too intolerant of different points of view."
"Recent events across our country clearly highlight the need for a more civil, respectful, and inclusive national conversation. Those of us in the media and in politics bear a special obligation to all Americans, to find common ground," the statement concluded.
