Doing this just feeds into the right wing’s “mob” claim. Even Ted Cruz is entitled to eat dinner in peace.
Re Tucker Carlson: If you don't like him, what exactly is accomplished by terrorizing his family? Wouldn't something else — say, organizing a boycott of his advertisers — be a more effective means of protest?

This is Brownshirt/fascist behavior. Period. If you defend it because Carlson’s opinions are noxious or dangerous, you’re opening the door to the “other guys” doing the same thing to you. https://t.co/4V08iiOCfa

Tucker Carlson is a blight on journalism and our public discourse. But addressing that reality with this tactic is disastrous for any republic, chilling to all speech including dissent, and, in the end, serves only to engender sympathy and allegiance with those targeted. https://t.co/eiC4kcNpRl

This trend of harassing media figures and others at their homes is really detestable https://t.co/jl9BUZL3M3

Fighting Tucker Carlson’s ideas is an American right. Targeting his home and terrorizing his family is an act of monstrous cowardice. Obviously don’t do this, but also, take no pleasure in it happening. Feeding monsters just makes more monsters.

The @TheDemocrats have NO affiliation with Antifa. Let me repeat, NO affiliation with Antifa. Far Left mob, the Far Right mob that’s infiltrated the Republican Party is the #ProudBoys. To protest against Tucker Carlson’s views/lies; go protest #FoxNews not at his 🏡. Exhibit 1: pic.twitter.com/oBQyTkM6Kj

People should not have done what they did at Tucker Carlson's house.
I wrote something critical once about the calamitous CNN show hosted by TC and Bill Press. TC then shared my private e-mail with what passed for his audience. I, and my family, got death threats.

“We know where you sleep at night,” they chanted outside Tucker Carlson’s home. @PeterBeinart says liberal protests targeting private lives "threaten the very norms of human decency that Trump and his supporters have done so much to erode.” https://t.co/3yXopGQhLe
