Fox News’ Tucker Carlson Is Literally Out Here Trying To Deny White Supremacy After The El Paso Shooting
Tucker Carlson is the same Fox News host who got flustered when a guest was able to discredit his argument about taxes. Who can forget the unhinged, expletive-filled rant that went viral? Now, the conservative personality is telling his viewers that white supremacy, which has led to numerous deaths since Trump’s election, is a hoax.
Here’s Tucker Carlson trying to discredit studies about white supremacy just days after a white man targeted Mexicans in El Paso.
“But the whole thing is a lie,” Carlson says in the clip. “If you were to assemble a list, a hierarchy of concerns of problems this country faces, where would white supremacy be on the list? Right up there with Russia probably,” he said. “It’s actually not a real problem in America. The combined membership of every white supremacist organization in this country would be able to fit inside a college football stadium.”
Carlson’s own talking points are being scrutinized after the shooter in El Paso posted a manifesto riddled with Fox News talking points.
Users on 4chan and 8chan blew up this week with multiple posts celebrating Tucker Carlson for embracing their white supremacist ideologies. It gives a new context to his rant calling white supremacy a hoax when Carlson himself is being praised by white supremacists.
To be clear, the FBI director has testified to the increase of white supremacy and its danger in the U.S.
Last month, FBI Director Chris Wray spoke to the Senate Judiciary Committee and admitted that there has been a dangerous uptick in white supremacy in the U.S.
“A majority of the domestic terrorism cases we’ve investigated are motivated by some version of what you might call white supremacist violence,” Wray stated when talking about the 100 domestic terror arrests made in 9 months.
Yet, despite the information from the heads of intelligence, people still deny the true danger of growing white supremacy.
Being anti-white is very different than being against white supremacy. White supremacy is deadly. We have seen it several times in the past couple of years from Charlottesville, Virginia to El Paso, Texas. White supremacy is radicalizing people who are committing domestic terror acts.
The narrative dismissing and minimizing the impact and spread of white supremacy is dangerous.
Alt-right personalities and Fox News have pushed numerous conspiracy theories to attack those who disagree with them. Pizzagate was one story that was completely unfounded and debunked. However, the relentless coverage from Fox News about a fictional child sex ring in the basement of a pizza parlor led to one man threatening to attack when it was filled with patrons. That man was sentenced to 4 years in prison.
