Tucker Carlson: White Supremacy Is a ‘Hoax’ and ‘Not a Real Problem in America’

Tucker Carlson: White Supremacy Is a ‘Hoax’ and ‘Not a Real Problem in America’Three days after a Texas man allegedly killed 22 people in El Paso after apparently posting a manifesto complaining of a “Hispanic invasion,” Fox News host Tucker Carlson said white supremacy is not a problem in the United States and is actually a “hoax” and a “conspiracy theory.”Carlson, who regularly spouts the same anti-immigrant “invasion” rhetoric the El Paso shooter is believed to have espoused in a racist manifesto, hit back against those who say President Trump’s rhetoric on immigration may have emboldened the suspected shooter. The Fox News star claimed it is “just a lie” to say Trump ever “endorsed white supremacy or came close to endorsing white supremacy.”Crediting the president for condemning white supremacy while addressing the recent mass shootings, Carlson not only blasted critics of the president but took it a step further and dismissed the issue of white supremacy altogether, saying “the whole thing is a lie.” “If you were to assemble a list, a hierarchy of concerns, problems this country has, where would white supremacy be on the list? Right up there with Russia probably. It’s actually not a real problem in America.”After asserting that one could fit all the white supremacists in America within a football stadium, the Fox News primetime star—who has repeatedly claimed racism is essentially a non-existent problem— then mocked the idea of white supremacy being an issue in this country.“It’s a hoax,” he declared.  “Just like the Russia hoax, it’s a conspiracy theory used to divide the country and keep a hold on power.”Moments later, during an interview with frequent guest Victor Davis Hanson, Carlson insisted he's “never met anybody—not one person—who ascribes to white supremacy.”“I don't know a single person who thinks that's a good idea,” he added. “I don't—I mean, they are making this up, and it's a talking point which they are using to help them in this election cycle, obviously, because Russia died.”The New York Times, meanwhile, recently highlighted how white extremist ideology is a major driving force in deadly mass shootings. Furthermore, the FBI said last month that the majority of domestic terrorism cases they’ve recently investigated are versions of white supremacist violence. Besides the El Paso shooting, at least a dozen people were killed over the past year in two separate synagogue attacks in Poway, California, and Pittsburgh, Pennslyvania, both of which were tied to alleged gunmen who had expressed white nationalist views online beforehand.

Rand Paul Fires Back at Jon Stewart on Fox News: He’s ‘Not Using His Brain’

Rand Paul Fires Back at Jon Stewart on Fox News: He’s ‘Not Using His Brain’A day after former Daily Show host Jon Stewart and 9/11 responder John Feal came on Fox News and eviscerated him and fellow GOP Sen. Mike Lee for blocking the reauthorization of the 9/11 victims' compensation fund in the Senate, Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) appeared on Fox to return fire.And not only did the Kentucky lawmaker toss a lot of insults Stewart’s way, but Paul also claimed he should be lauded as a hero for holding up additional funding for 9/11 victims.“I know Jon Stewart,” Paul told Fox News host Neil Cavuto on Thursday. “Jon Stewart is sometimes funny, sometimes informed. In this case, he’s not funny nor informed.”Asserting that he always asks for “pay-fors” in all funding bills, even ones for disasters, the libertarian senator said Stewart’s name-calling exposes him as a “left-winger” before accusing the 9/11 victims’ advocate of being “part of the left-wing mob that is not using his brain.”“It's really disgusting,” he continued. “He pretended for years when he was on his comedy show to be somebody that could see both sides and see through the B.S., now he is the B.S. The B.S. meter is through the roof when you see him calling people names and calling people an abomination when I'm asking for something reasonable.”Cavuto would go on to press Paul about his support for Trump’s massive tax cut, asking him if it was OK to not pay for the tax breaks but not 9/11 funding. Paul brushed that off by noting he wanted a “paygo provision” added but his colleagues voted it out. He then went on to accuse Stewart of “telling a lie” about his support for deficits.Moments later, after saying he was one of the few people in Congress who cares about balancing the budget, Paul then demanded that he be celebrated for his principled stand.“I'm trying to have a debate in our country about whether or not deficits matter and whether or not we should offset new spending,” he exclaimed. “I think I should be commended and loudly cheered for being one of the few fiscally responsible people up here.”Paul concluded: “And I think we ought to set the record straight. Because Jon Stewart can't just have a free pass to lie. He's a celebrity and thinks facts don't matter.”Read more at The Daily Beast.Got a tip?
