In something right out of Nazi Germany, the New York Times plans to publish a story revealing where Fox News host Tucker Carlson and his family live.
As Carlson explained on his show (July 20, 2020) the Times has no reason to do so except to hurt him and to try to silence him. There is no legitimate news value in telling the far-left readers of the Times where they can find Carlson when he is most isolated, most vulnerable.
There is no reason at all except to feed the mob’s bloodlust. Carlson, an outspoken conservative, is THE ENEMY.
You can imagine German newspapers in the 1930s publishing the addresses of Jews to help the mob find them and “teach them a lesson,” but did you ever think anything like that would happen here? Or maybe the Times is treating Carlson the way a small-town Southern newspaper might have treated an “uppity” black person in the Jim Crow South. If a gang of masked men finds Carlson and terrorizes him (or worse) it will send a powerful message to other conservatives to shut up!
In a remarkable show of patience, Carlson waited till the end of his show Monday to explain how he was being targeted and to call out the New York Times by name:
“So why is The New York Times doing a story on the location of my family’s house? Well, you know why. To hurt us, to injure my wife and kids so that I will shut up and stop disagree with them. They believe in force. We’ve learn that. Two years ago, a left-wing journalism was publicized our home address in Washington. A group of screaming antifa lunatics showed up while I was at work. They vandalized our home. They threatened my wife. She called 911 while hiding in a closet. A few weeks later they showed up again at our house. For the next year, they sent letters to our home threatening to kill us. We tried to ignore it and felt cowardly to sell our home and leave. We raised our kids there the neighborhood and we loved it. But in the end that’s what we did. We have four children. It just wasn’t worth it.”
If you follow Carlson, you remember that episode. Carlson’s front door was cracked by the mob. It was a close call, but the mob was just there to scare Carlson and his family that day. But when a vicious animal gets the scent of blood it can’t rest.
“The New York Times followed us. The paper has assigned a political activist called Murray Carpenter to write a story about where we are now. They’ve hired a photographer called Tristan Spinski to take pictures. Their story about where we live is slated to run the paper this week. Editors there know exactly what will happen to my family when it does run. I called them today and I told them. But they didn’t care. They hate my politics. They want they show off the air. If one of my children gets hurt because of a story they wrote, they won’t considered it collateral damage, they know it’s the whole point of the exercise: To inflict pain on our family, to terrorize us, to control we say. That’s the kind of people they are.”
Carlson notes that the political activists at the Times (see Bari Weiss’s resignation letter for details) pretend they are practicing journalism.
“Really? So, how would Murray Carpenter and his photographer Tristan Spinski feel if we told you where they live, if we put pictures of their homes on the air? What if we publicized the home address of everyone of the soulless robot editors at The New York Times who assigned and manage this incitement to violence against my family? What about the media editor, Jim Windolf? We could do that. We know who they are. Would that qualify as journalism? We doubt they’d consider it journalism. They’d call it criminal behavior if we did it and that tells you everything.”
