Tucker Carlson Cooks Up His Dumbest Conspiracy Theory Yet
Fox News' Tucker Carlson spent the first few minutes of his Wednesday evening show scolding protesters who overthrew monuments to racist historical figures.
Tucker Carlson Tonight moderator has developed a conspiracy theory involving the Democrats and anti-racism demonstrations that spread after the police assassinated George Floyd last month in Minneapolis.
Carlson, who has made racist comments for a long time, also said that America "is not a racist country".
"It's pretty clear that nothing is as we were told," said Carlson. "These are not protests. This is not about George Floyd. It's not about systemic racism, whatever that is. America is not a racist country. You are not a bad person to live here. These are definitely not demonstrators or rioters. "
“You are the armed militia of the Democratic Party. They are working to overthrow our government system, ”he continued. "They're trying to get to power. It's all obvious now."
Carlson called the demonstrators "real idiots", "angry children" and "absolutely stupid".
"It has probably never gathered a stupid group in one place in all of American history," he said.
"They're mouth breathers. They don't know anything. They couldn't tell you who George Washington was," Carlson scolded. "They don't know when the civil war was going on, probably not until the century. They say they are against racism and then demolished monuments to abolitionists. They don't see the contradiction in this because they have no idea who the abolitionists were "They think it's a band from the 80s."
