Tucker Carlson Ignites Outrage For Saying Black Lives Matter 'Will Come For You' In Overtly Racist Rant

Fox News

As one of America's most successful racists, far-right Fox News host Tucker Carlson is no stranger to broadcasting white supremacist talking points to the millions of people viewing his primetime show.

In the past, he's called Democratic Minnesota Congresswoman and former Somalian refugee Ilhan Omar "living proof" that the way the United States practices immigration is dangerous. He called Iraq a "crappy place" filled with "semiliterate, primitive monkeys."

With protests continuing across the country against the murder of George Floyd by police, it's no surprise that Tucker Carlson recently turned up the dial on the racist rhetoric.

Watch below.

Carlson said:

"This may be a lot of things, this moment we're living through, but it is definitely not about Black lives, and remember that when they come for you ― and at this rate, they will."

"Anyone who has ever been subjected to the rage of the mob knows the feeling. It's like being swarmed by hornets. You cannot think clearly."
"And the temptation is to panic. But you can't panic. You've got to keep your head and tell the truth."
"Tell the truth. If you show weakness of any kind, they will crush you."

He went on to caution against "empowering the worst people, people who hate you."

Soon, #TuckerCarlsonIsARacist began trending on Twitter.

The backlash against Carlson's dangerous rhetoric came quickly.




But people didn't need the hashtag to know that Tucker Carlson was a racist.



How does he still have advertisers?
