The true aim of Tucker Carlson’s latest allegation must be in a mirror

Tucker Carlson said it is time for Democrats to cut their rhetoric before it gets “really ugly.”

The Fox News host complained on Monday that President Joe Biden caused nothing but division and fury, highlighting the country’s urgent need to confront extremism, white supremacy and domestic terrorism.

Carlson seemed to take this call to action personally.

“Huh, that was not the deal,” Carlson said. “We got rid of the orange man and you’re still calling me a racist? Why are you doing this? Why aren’t you trying to unite the country?”

Then, Carlson showed viewers a Nation World News segment about propaganda and hatred on “Tucker Carlson Tonight.” Carl Cameron, former chief political correspondent for Fox News, guest of Nation World News, said it was important to counter Carlson’s rhetoric and pointed to proposed legislation that could de-platform those who tell lies that cause harm and violence. cause.

“Something needs to be done about it,” Cameron told Nation World News. “And the administration is really starting to take a step on that.”

After the clip aired, Carlson told his audience that Cameron had “sent the show to jail because there is now a fair punishment for disagreeing with Joe Biden.”

(It didn’t. Cameron used an analogy about being arrested for shouting at a crowded movie house to illustrate that false rhetoric must have legal consequences that intentionally cause harm).

“Rhetoric has its own internal logic. You’ve experienced it, you can talk yourself into things,” Carlson said. “We’ve all done it. Democrats are doing it right now.”

“It’s scary. It’s time to pull back. It’s time to de-escalate. Otherwise it’s going to get ugly really soon,” he said.

Carlson’s show became a topic of discussion on Nation World News and other networks because one of its common themes was reportedly echoed by the mass shooter that killed 10 black people on May 14 in Buffalo, New York.

The theory popular among white supremacists holds that Democrats are replacing white Americans with people of color through immigration policies to change the voting demographics in their favor. Carlson talked about it over 400 episodes.
