Carol Swain, a former law professor at Vanderbilt University, joins FNC's Tucker Carlson to discuss her recent Wall Street Journal op-ed titled: What It's Like to Be Smeared by the Southern Poverty Law Center
CAROL SWAIN: I'm not surprised. I had criticized them first. And I was criticizing them because I saw that they were engaging in mission creep. They had lost sight of their original purpose. And they had started going after conservatives. At the time it was immigration restrictionists. I wrote a blog in Sept. 2009, and about six weeks later, my photograph was in my local paper, on the front page, with a headline that I was an apologist for white supremacy. So they retaliated.
TUCKER CARLSON: Did you say anything nice about white supremacists in your piece?
SWAIN: It had nothing to do with white supremacists. There was a film that I reviewed. The title of the filmd was 'A Conversation About Race.'
And I gave it an enthusiastic review, because I felt that on college and university campuses,
that there was a debate that was not usually heard in social science classes, and that was the perspective of whites who felt that they were being beaten up by accusations of racism.
