Conservative Fox News host Tucker Carlson is stirring up controversy again. He has said in his Tuesday evening monologue that America’s white supremacy problem is a ”hoax.”
This has caused the left-wing media, like Brian Stelter at CNN, to go into their normal hysteria. It’s the usual thing whenever a conservative refutes their theory that America is still a fundamentally racist country at its core.
The left is pointing to Saturday’s mass shooting at a Walmart store in Texas as evidence that America has a white supremacist problem. The shooter, a 21 year old white male, posted a manifesto online, attacking immigrants and Mexicans. El Paso, where the shooting occurred is predominantly Hispanic. The left seems to be trying to take this man’s extremist views, and condemn all white Americans as complicit or accomplices.
Not a single outlet or private blogger has a single word of praise for the shooter. If liberals were right, you would think approval would be widespread. That’s how it should be, if white supremacist ideas were as pervasive among white Americans, as the left wants you to believe.
There has been nothing but condemnation, along with calls for Texas to seek the death penalty for the shooter.
Carlson said on Tuesday evening, “the whole thing is a lie,” adding that it’s “actually not a real problem in America. The combined membership of every white supremacist organization would be able to fit inside a college football stadium.”
Never-Trumper Jonah Goldberg tweeted, “If Trump apes these talking points, it’ll be awful for the country and devastating for Trump’s presidency.” If any other Republican in 2016, say Ted Cruz or Jeb Bush, secured the nomination and won the Presidency, then Jonah Goldberg would have supported him, and also would have rebuked and mocked any notion from the left that America had a white supremacist problem. If anyone besides Donald Trump was President, Goldberg would have stood by Tucker Carlson.
You know who else believes white supremacy is not a real problem?
White supremacists. https://t.co/HYZZVRg1cm

Liberal Fox News host Mo Elleithee tweeted, “you know who else believes white supremacy is not a real problem, white supremacists.” There’s a reach of logic. It sidesteps the point while sounding good.

This is not about Tucker Carlson, a perceived “white supremacist threat,” or about the Saturday’s massacre and the deranged views and ideology, as far as there is one, of the shooter.
The real issue is left-wing hatred for President Trump, and their refusal to get over the fact that Donald Trump won in 2016, not Hillary Clinton.
