You know, I had Tucker Carlson figured for a mostly establishment twerp, but he’s now appearing on Alex Jones’ radio show. On that show, he delivered what can only be described as a breathtakingly ignorant take on the history of race relations in the United States.
Tucker Carlson, the editor-in-chief of the Daily Caller, appeared on conspiracy theorist Alex Jones’ Infowars program on Election Day to warn about growing racial divisions in America as a result of immigration and President Obama’s time in office. Carlson said that identity politics based on race are a new feature in U.S. politics and that this development is Obama’s fault, of course.
He warned that the president is attempting to use “race to divide the country and get out the vote and use racial fears to get their base out to the polls.” “Look around the world,” Carlson said. “You’ve traveled, you know, practically every other country on the planet is divided by ethnic politics. We haven’t been historically but we’re moving in that direction. You don’t even want to play with that stuff and they’re doing it in a big way and it’s reckless.”
Every other country has been divided by race but America hasn’t? And now we’re headed that way because of Obama? Where the fuck did Tucker Carlson go to high school where they teach history and skip over slavery, Jim Crow and the entire civil rights movement?
