A group called Smash Racism D.C. posted messages on social media encouraging the protest and revealing Carlson's address.
The left-wing group had previously posted video of their harassment of Cruz and his wife at a D.C. restaurant.
"Tucker Carlson, we will fight, we know where you sleep at night", the group chanted. They called him a "racist scumbag" and hurled epithets.
Following backlash and news reports, Twitter deleted the problematic tweets and suspended the groups account early Thursday morning. "It was a threat".
"I sense they are getting paid", he said on "Fox and Friends".
The group screamed different explicit and derogatory phrases during their violent protest outside of the Fox News host's house.
Now, Carlson is anxious about leaving his family alone at home. "No USA at all!" they chanted in another video. "She retreated to a room in the rear of her home and summoned police".
"This is terrible. Stop targeting people's homes, their families, and stop substituting violence for dissent", National Rifle Association (NRA) Spokesperson Dana Loesch tweeted. An anarchy symbol was spray painted on his driveway as well. The host is well aware of the animosity of his critics.
Carlson said the protesters had blocked off both ends of his street and carried signs that listed his home address.
Tucker's former Fox News colleague, Megyn Kelly, decried the incident over Twitter. He does not deserve this. "What sense was there in terrorizing her family?" he wrote. "By the political left, the political right or the deranged".
"I think Tucker is a awful influence on modern America but that doesn't justify harassing him at home. Go high, not low", CNN commentator Max Boot tweeted.
"This behavior is way over the line", senior fellow Matthew Gertz tweeted. None of the couple's children were home at the time. The Facebook video was also taken down, but the page is still up. "Feeding monsters just makes more monsters".
Smash Racism held three "From Resistance to Revolution" conferences at St. Stephen and the Incarnation Episcopal Church in November and December of previous year. Someone started throwing himself against the front door and actually cracked the front door, ' Carlson told The Washington Post.
Carlson's colleagues came to his defense. Commentator Brit Hume called the protest "revolting, and frightening".
"Here's the problem, I have four children", he said.
Susie Carlson dialed 911, thinking it was a home invasion.
