Fox News TV personality Tucker Carlson is under fire for insisting that white supremacy is a “hoax” and “not a real problem in America.” Carlson made the remarks on his program Tuesday evening.
Tucker Carlson: “The whole thing is a lie. If you were to assemble a list, a hierarchy of concerns or problems this country faces, where would white supremacy be on the list? Right up there with Russia probably. It’s actually not a real problem in America.”
Last month, media campaigners launched a campaign to pressure advertisers to boycott Tucker Carlson’s show, after he launched a racist attack on Minnesota Congressmember Ilhan Omar. Carlson has previously said immigration makes America “poorer, and dirtier, and more divided,” and in 2006 called Iraqis “semi-literate primitive monkeys.”
