On Wednesday, Fox News’ Tucker Carlson shredded Mediaite blogger Justin Baragona for a blog post entitled, “Tucker Carlson isn’t even Trying To Hide His White Nationalist Leanings Anymore.”
“His evidence for this? Well it was a segment we did pointing out that the Democratic Party has basically given up trying to appeal to the American middle class and have started openly encouraging illegal immigration. We didn’t mention race at all because it’s irrelevant,” Carlson said.
“So how exactly does that qualify as white nationalism? Well, Justin Baragona didn’t explain or accept our invitation to come on the show and explain his reasoning, because like an awful lot of name callers, he’s a coward,” Carlson added.
Here’s video of his comments:
Baragona started his post by smearing Carlson right up front:
With Wednesday night’s broadcast of Tucker Carlson Tonight, Fox News’ Tucker Carlson seemingly decided to stop beating around the bush, said “screw it,” and came out to his audience as basically a full-fledged white nationalist. And it’s doubtful he’ll be putting that genie back in the bottle anytime soon.
At the top of the show, Tucker opened up with a monologue in which he denounced the Democratic Party for being too extreme and unrecognizable to the party it was in years’ past. Fair enough, that is a fairly common argument the Fox News host has made over the past few months and one made by many Republicans. In this instance, however, he sure seems to point the finger of blame at black and brown people.
Of course, Baragona completely missed the point and Carlson’s criticism of the Democrat Party is spot on — it HAS become far more radicalized than ever before, which is why it continues to lose elections across the country.
But it seems that liberals like Baragona don’t really care about facts and are reduced to nothing more than name-calling and defamatory smears. He even insinuated that Carlson is a bigot because he reads Breitbart. If that’s the case, there apparently are tens of millions of bigots in the country today — that is, if one accepts Baragona’s faulty premise.
And of course, Baragona went full “CNN,” insinuating that those who watch Carlson’s program are also white supremacists (Edited for language, since liberals apparently can’t make a point without profanity):
Look, it isn’t a secret that white supremacists appreciate Tucker Carlson. Back in July, Vox’s Carlos Maza highlighted how racists and well-known white nationalists expressed their love for Tucker while noting the way Carlson reported on certain racial, social and immigration issues. At that time, Maza pointed out that the conservative commentator utilized various techniques and tactics to create a veneer of respectability when it came to his highly volatile messaging.
The thing is, Tucker is also really smart and has long been able to couch his views on immigration and refugees as being based on his concerns towards national security, economic stability, and crime. And moving forward, just as he’s done in the past, he’ll continue to list those concerns as the main reasons he wants to limit all immigration etc.
But, Wednesday night, it felt like Carlson ran out of sh**s to give, and just laid it pretty bare for the world to see.
Got that? Apparently, if you watch Tucker Carlson, you’re probably a white supremacist. If you want border security, you’re a white supremacist. If you disagree with any liberal talking point, no matter how insane, you’re a white supremacist.
And liberals wonder why they keep losing elections…
