On Wednesday a mob descended on Fox News host Tucker Carlson's Washington, D.C. home in order to intimidate the host. The group is affiliated with the liberal organization Antifa and were demanding that Carlson flee the city. D.C. police have confirmed that the incident is being investigated as a hate crime.

According to The Daily Caller:

D.C. police are investigating a left-wing mob’s protest at Fox News host Tucker Carlson’s house Wednesday evening as a ‘suspected hate crime‘ with ‘anti-political’ motivations, according to a police report obtained by The Daily Caller News Foundation. 

The mob, organized by the Antifa group Smash Racism DC, posted Carlson’s Washington address online and sent a mob to his house calling him a “racist scumbag” and demanded he flee the city. Carlson, a co-founder of The Daily Caller News Foundation, was at the Fox News studio when the mob arrived at his home.

A police report indicated that the incident was a “suspected hate crime” and that the case was still open. One box labeled “hate bias/motivation” was filled in “anti-political.”

Carlson’s wife, who was home alone at the time, reported that she heard loud banging and pounding on her front door, according to the police report. She called the police after witnessing a large group of people that had a bull horn and were chanting loudly outside the house.

Carlson told the Washington Post that things an individual threw himself against his front door and cracked it. The mob also painted an anarchy symbol on Carlson's driveway.
