Tucker Carlson said Monday that left-wing protesters, including from Antifa, called for the assassination of President Trump over the weekend, but the media focused much of its coverage on a small gathering of white supremacists. 

Carlson said that the press "hyperventilated" that there would be large numbers of "hooded Klansmen on horseback" to commemorate the one-year anniversary of the Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville.

However, he said the real "growing crisis is left-wing extremism and violence."

"The media pretends it doesn't exist... [the protesters] are calling for the destruction of the United States," he said, playing video of protesters chanting "No borders, no wall, no USA at all."

Carlson also played tape of several protesters in Washington saying they would personally murder Trump if they met him.

A young white man with blond hair said he would "murder [Trump] for the people."

Another protester, a young white man with black hair whose face was partially obscured by a cloth, said that he would "do him like Qaddafi" -- a reference to how the Libyan people dragged tyrant Muammar Qaddafi through the streets before assassinating him.

Carlson said NBC News did not cover another left-wing protester who assaulted a cameraman and called him a "snitch-a** b***h" in Charlottesville.

"The left did it so it would've undermined their storyline," Carlson said.
