(TeaParty.org) – This week, amid all the craziness of the midterms, the unhinged leftist media, and yet another gruesome mass shooting, Antifa decided to dox and target Fox host Tucker Carlson, who has never shied away from calling them out for their mob violence.
The group, “Smash Racism DC”, shared a video on Twitter of members telling Carlson to “leave town” and calling him a “racist scumbag.”
Fox and Friends host Brian Kilmeade, however, thinks there’s far more to the story than what “Smash Racism DC” would like us to believe.
He says this is likely political optics rather than a grassroots violent mob.
“I sense that they’re getting paid,” Kilmeade said on Friday’s show. “I think all these protests that have all of a sudden pushing for Jeff Sessions and are outside Tucker Carlson’s house are getting a paycheck to do just that.”
Fox News CEO Suzanne Scott and President Jay Wallace have decried the group’s actions as “reprehensible.”
They said in a statement:
The incident that took place at Tucker’s home last night was reprehensible. 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.
Kilmeade explains that whoever is behind “Smash Racism DC”, they’re unlikely to be effective.
“It hurts your case. It galvanizes people who normally would be in your corner or share your beliefs against you, because you just now want violence,” he explained.
“You went to intimidation, you went to scare tactics. I don’t know if you’ve noticed but most of the people that believe something, this works against you trying to convince them. So you think Tucker is going to come out on when he comes back on Monday and say, ‘Oh, I decided to pull back and stop voicing my views’?” he added.
