“Dear PoPville,

Can we talk about how a woman who was home alone making dinner had to lock herself in a closet and call 911 because people were trying to break down her door to protest a person they just don’t agree with? Is this what our city has come to?”

The Washington Post reported:

“It wasn’t a protest. It was a threat,” said [Fox News host Tucker] Carlson, who is often denounced by critics, particularly liberal ones, for his rhetoric about immigrants and minorities on his Fox News show. “They weren’t protesting anything specific that I had said. They weren’t asking me to change anything. They weren’t protesting a policy or advocating for legislation. … They were threatening me and my family and telling me to leave my own neighborhood in the city that I grew up in.”
