Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Friday, November 09, 2018

About a dozen protesters visited Tucker Carlson's home Wednesday evening with signs, a megaphone, and a tambourine. I was there for the entirety of the 10-minute demonstration, and can report in detail what actually happened.

A group numbering 13 or 14 protesters trailed by four protest observers, some in the bright green hats often worn by trained First Amendment legal observers when monitoring police-protester interactions, walked up Carlson's street just after dark on Wednesday.

One of the protesters knocked firmly on Carlson's front door three times then trotted back down the steps to join the rest of the group in the street. This person did not throw their body against the door, as Carlson has claimed to newspapers. A police report on the incident makes no mention of damage to the Carlsons' front door from the three stiff knocks, contradicting Carlson's claim that the demonstrators had cracked the door.

Another protester read a brief statement through an amplifying device, then led the group in a series of chants against Carlson's habitual promotion of white supremacist ideology and xenophobia on his Fox News program. Some of the chants included the refrain "we know where you sleep at night." At multiple points, a chant broke down despite the rhythm-track efforts of a protester with a tambourine.

Video posted on LiveLeak shows portions of the event, which lasted less than 10 minutes. It also illustrates Carlson's other embellishment -- that one person was caught on a security video saying they wanted to return to his home with a pipe bomb. In fact, the person filming is heard saying "Pipe bombs! Synagogue victims!" as the speaker with the amplifying device wraps up their initial statement and begins to lead chants.... There is no mention of the phrase "pipe bombs" in the police report later filed.

A few minutes later, one member of the group mounted the steps again and leaned a poster board sign on the Carlsons' front door before rejoining the group. The sign had Carlson's name and address on it.... A handful of cars passed in either direction, most without stopping. One woman stopped to sarcastically congratulate the group on their tactics, then drove along.

"We'll be back! We won't tell you when!" the group chanted as it moved away from the house. Those carrying signs left them in the front yard bushes and other benign locations on the front of the property as they went.

One straggler from the group then stopped, put a backpack on the ground, and retrieved a can of spray paint from it. As that straggler began to graffiti the anarchist A symbol on the Carlsons' driveway, at least two members of the group walking away expressed dismay with their fellow traveler. "I didn't sign up for this," said one. "Seriously, what the ----," said another. A Metropolitan Police Department squad car rolled up the street from the south as the tagger, clad in black and face not visible, finished up the symbol.

The first responding officers briefly interacted with the slowly departing protesters, then doubled back to the house to check on the occupants. The group proceeded back down the winding, hilly street alone, at the slow pace required by the two in their number who were leaning on canes as they walked. I followed in a car.

Nutshell:

Right-wing media have characterized Wednesday's group of fewer than 15 activists shadowed by four legal observers as a violent mob. In reality, a small group knocked on Carlson's door, shook a tambourine, and chanted slogans aimed at his chosen career hyping hateful speech aimed at racial minorities and political opponents, then left. As one of them broke off to spray paint his driveway, two others angrily reproached that person. Police opted not to arrest anyone in the group, choosing instead to scold them for their ill-mannered behavior and send them on their way.

The point of these direct actions, the activists behind them consistently say, is to deliver an emotional counterpunch to bad actors in U.S. politics whose work raises threat levels for marginalized communities. The point, in other words, is to unsettle and frighten -- and I certainly would have been frightened had it been me in that house. But in both embellishing the nature of the threat and papering over Carlson's own record, the media reaction has blurred the truth of Wednesday night's events.

Surprise, surprise... the right wing media has embellished and lied again, color me not surprised.

This is very different from what Tuckers wife said as she hid in the pantry (she was home alone). The chants are different too. Also, that would make this the shortest AntiFa "protest" on record.

And now two of the accusers just recanted and the FBI is looking them, not the victim.

About 20 members of the group pounded on the door of his home and stood outside chanting while Carlson's wife, alone in the house, locked herself in a pantry and called 911.

The group tweeted video of the antifa mob chanting 'we know where you sleep at night'. Police are investigating that incident as a hate crime.

So passive, so non threating it's being investigated as a hate crime. Everyone of you liberals who didnt condemn this and are justifying it sicken me. No TonyRoma, it's NOT ok to assault someone at their home just because of their political views..

Take it up with the police Boaz who did not report anything of the type that the DailyUK did. Also note that the dozen protesters brought 1st Amendment observers with them to make sure that they did not violate the Carlson's rights. Strangely, that wasn't mentioned either.

Your source doesn't match the known facts as reported and noted by the police themselves. No one was assaulted and the worst thing that happened was vandalism. Personally, I disagree with the group's decision, but to embellish what actually happened doesn't change the truth.

And stop extrapolating group blame where none exists. 15 people were there, not every person believing what Carlson does as a matter of his job is abhorrent when he attacks and demeans people unable to defend themselves from the vitriol he creates for his own profit and benefit. You sound like a fool as you sweep your wide net that always only catches the individuals actually responsible, not everyone else who wasn't there, nor had any hand in any specific action or statement.

They banged on his door (supposedly cracking it) and screamed through a megaphone thoroughly terrifying his wife. Then they defaced his property by spray-painting his driveway.

You don't go to someone's private residence to "protest".

They were chanting that he needs to leave the area and that they know where he sleeps.

I haven't. I'm just pointing out your total lack of concern about Carlson's usual total lack of concern regarding those he's hurting.

I've already condemned this incident. Any pretense I haven't is just that: pretense.

I don't.

But don't pretend he doesn't spew BS. And don't pretend folks aren't affected by said BS.

I often fantasize about antifa coming to my house and trying to attack me. I doubt they would stick around long as they heard the slide rack.

I don't, but I know many who do. And they internalize what he says as gospel.

That's a problem. A big problem that I have to deal with daily since everyone I know who follows politics is so riled up right now. It's a tense environment within my circles mainly because of Trump and mouthpieces like Carlson only make it worse.

Funny thing is, many of the Carlson watchers have been wondering why nobody, especially those on Fox, are talking about the caravan anymore. I just snicker, then shutter knowing these people have not only procreated, but continue to do so.

No one is talking about the caravan anymore because the Democrats have no more use for it after the elections.

And dont try to say the conservatives were pushing this. All three MSNBC, CNN's etc were pushing this 24 hrs. Now they arent.

Good God, man, can you taste the cluelessness when you post something that detached from reality?

I am going to have to save that one as the penultimate example of a clueless Republican sap.

Thanks, boazotoes.

Before the midterms, Trump harped on the migrant caravan. Since then, he hasn't brought it up.

Before the midterm elections, President Trump crossed the nation warning those attending his rallies of the oncoming threat of about 7,000 Central American migrants who are traveling through Mexico to seek asylum in the United States.

While campaigning in Chattanooga, Tenn., for Republican Senate candidate Marsha Blackburn last Sunday, Trump suggested that the migrants were looking to come in and disrupt Americans' lives.

"That's an invasion. I don't care what they say. I don't care what the fake media says. That's an invasion of our country," he said before rally attendees began chanting "Build the wall."

"I am telling the caravans, the criminals, the smugglers, the trespassers marching toward our border, turn back now, because you are not getting in. Turn back," Trump added.

It was also a frequent Twitter theme of his in late October.

And...
Fox News barely mentions caravan first morning after midterms

An interesting coincidence.

You really expect anyone to believe you, boazotoes?

Yep:

Where did all of that migrant caravan fear-mongering go?

Trump, Republicans, and the media amplified caravan conspiracy theories for weeks before the midterms.

Hey, remember the migrant caravan traveling north from Central America that President Donald Trump and conservatives were freaking out about as recently as Monday?

You know, the caravan that Republicans used to spread conspiracy theories as their closing argument before the midterms?

Well something curious has happened since Tuesday's elections.

The migrant caravan, which finally reached Mexico City, Mexico (still roughly 800 miles from the U.S. border) earlier this week after nearly a month of traveling, has completely disappeared from Trump's Twitter account.

It's also not being mentioned by Fox News anymore.

Nor is it being discussed by other conservative outlets that fear-mongered about the migrant caravan for weeks.

The Pentagon announced on Wednesday morning, less than 11 hours after the final polls had closed in the midterms, that Trump's pre-election push to send troops to the border in "a misuse of active duty military" had lost its fancy name.

The political ploy formerly known as "Operation Faithful Patriot" was estimated to cost as much as $220 million even though as CNBC reported, a "Pentagon risk assessment found that the caravan did not pose a threat to the United States."

Immigration was cited as the second-most important issue by voters in Tuesday's exit polling, and Trump, Republican lawmakers, and far-right media pushed caravan conspiracy theories in days before the election.

Door rang earlier today. I got excited thinking it was Antifa. I approached the door and made sure my pistol was within arms reach. Nope not Antifa just 2 young mormons. I said I was Catholic and they scampered away. Damn! I keep hear they are coming but they never come. Has Breitbart radio been lying to me?
