Mark Steyn spells it out:
Tucker Carlson, we will fight.
We know where you sleep at night.
This is an appalling reflection on where our politics is headed. In recent years I’ve seen enough friends in Europe forced out of public life and into hiding by Islamic fanatics in the cause of their lunatic caliphate. To see the same template adopted by 28-year-old Navel-Gazing Studies resistance poseurs is pathetic but disturbing nevertheless. Did they mean to assault him and his family? Or were they just mouthing off? Well, they broke an oak door. But, in any case, that’s not a calculation that should be forced on even as decayed a public discourse as ours.These are not the poor and downtrodden: The poseur resistance is largely what Americans call “upper middle-class”, for whom identification, arrest, trial and conviction would have serious consequences. We will see whether the District of Columbia has the will to do that – or, as in other US cities, whether they’re content to cede the streets to the paramilitary wing of Media Matters.
What with one thing and another, Brian Kilmeade was in the anchor’s chair last night, with Tucker calling in by telephone, and I turned up halfway through to talk to Brian about the latest evolution in the politics of self-identification and the repeal of the facts of life. More.
Reality check: Everything comes down to how many Americans would prefer rule by these folk. Venezuela waits.

Mark, you write, “an outrageous thug assault on his home by pampered decadent “anti-fascists” and “anti-racists” who have no idea what those words mean – and that, when you’re battering on a front door and forcing the woman inside to hide in the pantry in terror, you’re the fascist.”
Precisely. Much depends on people recognizing that this is not a mob of homeless people occupying a vacant building, This is a government-in-waiting and, in its own view, a government-in-exile.
It will govern in the way it behaves now.
Readers can form their own judgment of the dispositions of persons currently in power by how they react to this mob/government-in-waiting.
Then you will know what to expect for yourself as things unfold.
Carlson, after all, is not to everyone’s taste but he is hardly a provocateur. Nor, one assumes, are you, reader.
So don’t say you weren’t warned. This is the warning.
Tell people you think it matters to.
