- Anti-racism activists protested outside Fox News host Tucker Carlson’s home Wednesday night.
- Carlson wasn’t home. His wife reportedly thought it was a home invasion and called the police.
- Some of Carlson’s biggest targets – including CNN reporters and Stephen Colbert – came to his defense on Twitter.
- But other critics are unmoved, pointing out that Carlson defends policies that separate children from their parents.
Some of the people who Tucker Carlson criticizes most are coming to his defense after an anti-racist group protested outside his house Wednesday night.
CNN journalists, including Ana Navarro and Oliver Darcy, as well as “Late Show” host Stephen Colbert and Washington Post columnist Erik Wemple, all denounced the protestors. Carlson has ridiculed all of their work on his Fox News show, and many of them have criticized Carlson themselves in the past.
Smash Racism DC, a Washington DC-based activism group, were behind the Wednesday night protest.
“Tucker Carlson, we will fight, we know where you sleep at night,” the group chanted.
Carlson was at work at the time and his kids weren’t around, but his wife was home. She reportedly thought it was a home invasion and called 911.

But some critics of Carlson were unmoved
Others argued that Carlson should be a pariah, because of his anti-immigration views, his use of language associated with white nationalists, and his defense of policies that separate children from their parents.
Carlson told the Washington Post the protest left him afraid for his family.
“How can you go out for dinner and leave the kids at home at this point?” he said. “If they’re talking about pipe bombs … how do you live like that?”
