Tucker Carlson: Left's "Diversity Agenda," "Destructive Obsession With Race" Is "Totalitarian"


FOX NEWS: While our leaders fret about Putin's bloggers, an unstable maniac is portrayed as white supremacist Trump supporter when he really wasn't and the left's concern for equal rights has been replaced by the diversity agenda dangerously obsessed with race. Tucker Carlson, host of Tucker Carlson Tonight, deliver commentary.

Rough transcript, via FOX News:

TUCKER CARLSON, FOX NEWS: As you may have heard, over the weekend, a deranged man in a state of Oregon called Jeremy Christian began berating Muslims on a train and when three men approached the intervene, he stabbed two of them to death. It was an atrocity, it's only the first of many in the story. Almost immediately after it happened, the press scrambled to define what exactly had happened.

Right wing, white supremacist commits murder, provoked by Trump's climate of hate, climate of fear, maybe both. Fake civil rights group like the center for Islamic in relations, and the Southern Poverty Law Center jumped on board immediately, blaming President Trump's rhetoric.


UNIDENTIFIED MALE: He has been very silent. The silence has been deafening in terms of the amount of hate crimes and actual, what I say, white terrorist attacks that have taken place in the United States of America.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Mr. Trumps xenophobic, vitriolic campaign coupled with his attacks on political correctness, have told many people that the gloves are off and that they are allowed, basically, to act on their worst instincts.


CARLSON: Many alleged journalists weren't any more restrained than that. The blog Vox called the crime, quote, "The latest in a wave of racist attacks across America." That followed President Trump's election. "The Associated Press" chimed in with a piece entitled this, "Unease about white supremacy grows after Portland stabbing." President Trump was shamed for taken too long to tweet about the attack. The message was clear. This is what Trump's America looks like. Not one to let a crisis go to waste, the mayor of Portland, Ted Wheeler, use the killings to ban free speech itself, calling for the cancellation of two upcoming political rallies.


MAYOR TED WHEELER, PORTLAND: I'm appealing to the organizers of the alt- right offense to cancel the events that they have scheduled. My main concern is that they are coming to pedal a message of hatred and of bigotry.


CARLSON: Over the very message that cause the murders, except, none of this was actually true. The accused killer was not a Trump voter. He actually backed Jules Stein and Bernie Sanders in the 2016 race and indeed called for violent attacks on Trump supporters during the election. A video from the day before the stabbing shows him denouncing not just Muslims, but also, Jewish people and Christians. And if Facebook posting from last June, he attacked Hillary Clinton for allegedly keeping Honduran refugees out of this country, hardly behavior of a coherent white supremacists.

At the alt-right rally, supposedly attended in April, he was apparently there to pick fights with everyone, whether they loved Trump or hated him. Once you dig a little, you find that this guy wasn't a right-winger, but an unstable maniac who hated almost everybody and maybe inevitably was going to lash out at some point, but don't tell that to the media, though. Like progressives everywhere, they see racists under every bed.

Even, believe it or not, at Evergreen State College in the state of Washington. Evergreen is one of the most left-wing schools in the Western hemisphere, but students have become convinced the place has been infiltrated by bigots to root them out. Progressives there have occupied administration buildings, ordered white people off the campus with the threat of force. Watch this.



Hey, hey, ho, ho, these racist teachers have got to go! Hey, hey, ho, ho, these racist teachers have got to go!

Hey, hey, ho, ho!

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: Why is this the most violent (bleep) to ever brief?


UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: All of our administration is white.


UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: It's not an activist.


UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: I am tired of white people talking about what black and brown people need. You don't know!

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: (Bleep) you and (bleep) the police!



CARLSON: While our leaders in Washington fret about Vladimir Putin and its bloggers, this is what is going on with the rest of America. Where are the people in charge exactly? Well, they are basing themselves before the tormentors, of course. George Bridges, the cringing president of Evergreen, actually thinks the rioters as they screamed at him. He expressed his, quote, "gratitude" for their, quote, "passion and courage" in trampling the rights of everyone else. How did we get here, exactly?

Well, a lot of answers to that question but a main one is this, the left's concerns for equal rights for all has been replaced by the diversity agenda, which is a destructive obsession with race. The Trump's free speech, which is routinely suppressed and its name, it obviates the rule of law, which aggrieve parties can freely ignore, as you just saw. In the name of tolerance, the demands conformity, it calls for justices are often an excuse for violence, it is totalitarian and suddenly, it is everywhere. What does this mean for the rest of us?
