Tucker Carlson Goes All-In on White Supremacy
And by saying “white men don’t fight” dishonorably, he ignores over 500 years of history
At this point, if you refuse to believe Tucker Carlson is a white supremacist, you just aren’t paying attention.
From his insistence that non-white immigrants make America dirtier to his cosigning of Great Replacement Theory — the idea that there is some nefarious scheme to replace whites in the U.S. with hordes of brown folks from the global south — there are few tropes popular with the racists on 4Chan to which Tucker hasn’t offered a full-throated endorsement.
And now, thanks to private texts disclosed due to the Dominion Voting Systems lawsuit against FOX News, we’ve been given a glimpse of how finely-grained Carlson’s racial superiority complex is.

After all, that can be written up to the natural instincts of a man whose knuckles have never likely been bruised in a fight and whose own physical virility has always been, at best, vicariously lived.
No, the really interesting part of the text, and the part that confirms Carlson’s white supremacist bona fides, was the part where he critiqued the MAGA thugs for…
