    This is way over the line. I think Tucker Carlson is a Grade A Asswipe but the people who did this are even worse.

    It should go without saying, but I condemn these tactics and want nothing to do with any group who employs them.

    Yeah, these folk live in bubbles and need confronting, but do it elsewhere. Don't scare kids.

    This is too far for either side. To show up at someone's home shows a progression of intended violence. This should be criminal and the people involved on both sides need to be arrested and charged to the fullest extent of the law. This is terrorizing someone and where there are consequences for your words this goes beyond acceptable and even if you do not intend violence you are entering a dangerous area where things will get out of hand. If you want to protest his presence on the news go down to faux news or protest his sponsors in a non violent or threatening fashion.

    In all honesty if we start allowing this sort of thing the right extremists are far less moral and much more prone to violence and crime and they will do more harm than others.

    As for this being antifa, that should be investigated. If antifa is encouraging and organizing these sorts of events they need to be treated like the proud boys for doing so. If this is just some members acting on their own without antifa organization then they should be tried on their own.

    Remember when right-wing nuts were lynching Barack Obama dummies, and trading Michelle Obama monkey cartoons, it was "free speech maaaaan! :?:".

    Now it's "Antifa exists, apologize! :bailey:".

    I don't mind burning effigies or making cartoons--whether it's the left or the right that does it--but getting a mob together and going to someone's house is an inherently threatening action, especially when you shout things like telling the residents to get out of town or you start pounding on the doors.

    Anyone would find that threatening. There's not a person in the world who would shrug that off.

    If it were me, I've got one hand on the phone calling the police, and the other on a weapon, ready to unload on anyone who comes through the door.

    While what you say is true, if this was a CNN anchor I bet you would be saying he deserved it. @Zombie certainly would.

    Yeah. Right. Well isn't it funny that in four pages of the Acosta ban thread you had nothing to say, but when it's a Fox News guy being treated unfairly you're one of the first in the thread to express outrage.

    Funny dat. :lol:

    Not sure Acosta was being treated unfairly. He seems to be a journalist who's trying to make himself the story.

    But, be that as it may, there's a big difference between an antagonistic reporter being booted from a Presidential press conference, and a mob showing up at someone's home and EXPLICITLY telling the occupants they should be fearful and leave town.

    Yes, I thought you'd go down that line, but the fact is that although there is a difference in the mistreatment, the fact that both mistreatments are unjustified is the commonality. Whatever one thinks of Acosta's attitude it is not acceptable to ban a member of the press simply for asking questions the President doesn't want to answer. That you will make excuses for it shows you that when it's a journalist who is mistreated who is not in your tribe your couldn't give a shit. But if one of your Fox News stooges you're immediately outraged.

    Of course, you don't see the Acosta situation as mistreatment though do you? Because in order to do so you'd have to swallow your pride and have to accept that your orange hero is trying to dodge questions over his policies.

    Fuck Tucker Carlson.
    But not this way; it sets a bad precedent.
    Everyone in here is right: Bad on the protesters.

    side note Tucker often has that confused look on his face when a guest on his show is talking. I know he's focusing on what they say but damn dude.....
    Regardless yeah physically taking a mob at night to someone's home all dressed the same and wearing masks is very creepy & scary. While not the same thing and I'm not trying to compare the groups but hey....cowardly intimidation is still cowardly intimidation.

    @El Chup has lost it. He’s gone full retard.

    There is no commonality between what happened to Acosta and Tucker except that both work in the media industry.

    A mob at Acosta’s house would be just as unacceptable. If Tucker was at a press conference acting foolishly that too would be unacceptable.

    "Acting foolish". :dayton:

    How did Acosta "act foolish"?

    Would you condone a ban for a Fox News correspondent if he behaved "foolishly" during a White House briefing?

    Yes.

    If a Fox News reporter had been acting like Acosta has for two years and at this particular press conference he most certainly should have been tossed out. On. His. Ass.

    Acosta, in case you forgot, has been called out on his behavior by other press pool reporters in the past. This wasn't a one time incident. Acosta has been showing his ass since Trump took office.

    This was just the final straw.

    Going to his house is crossing a line. Telling him to go fuck himself at a restaurant will never stop being funny though.

    Meh. Banging on his door and trying to break it down is absolutely crossing a line, but standing on the street outside his house and exercising your first amendment rights? Why not? :shrug:
