Tucker Carlson Laments That Black Lives Matter Is Now More Popular Than Trump
Fox News presenter Tucker Carlson again devoted a long monologue to the attack on Black Lives Matter on Monday evening. This time he complained about the social justice movement's growing popularity and wondered why the federal government hadn't made any conspiracy charges against it.
Carlson, who has seen advertisers on the run in recent days after saying Black Lives Matter "is definitely not about black lives," started the program on Monday evening, noting that the group was gaining momentum in the American public wins as protests over George Floyd's death and police rage brutality.

"Here is the latest news we never expected," complained Carlson. "Black Lives Matter is now more popular than the President of the United States and no less popular than the President, much more popular."
The Fox News presenter noted that right-wing pollster Rasmussen is now finding that 62 percent of Americans have a positive opinion of BLM, and noted that the racial justice movement also outstripped alleged Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden and the Pope.
Carlson described BLM as the country's most powerful political party and continued to claim that while the Americans can criticize other political parties, "Black Lives Matter now enjoys complete immunity from criticism."
The claim that the use of the phrase "All Lives Matter" is now "hate speech" said Carlson that the nation was in a "dangerous moment" before wondering aloud why "Black Lives Matter" was not due to the violent protests and Federal charges were brought up against looting that took place days after Floyd's death.
"Is there a reason why the DOJ has not filed a conspiracy charge against the people who organized and led the unrest?" Carlson grumbled. "It's not like we don't know who they are. Their crimes are on YouTube. They know the reason. BLM was involved."
The Fox News presenter closed his latest anti-BLM rant claiming that it is becoming more popular because his supporters "get what they want" and do it with "violence".
"They flood the streets with angry young people who break things and hurt anyone who gets in their way," said the conservative host. "If you want something, take it. Make them angry and they will set your business on fire. "
"Annoy them and they'll occupy your downtown area and declare a brand new country," he continued. "You won't do anything about it. They know that for sure. "
