TUCKER CARLSON (HOST): Equity and inclusion means that you will believe what they tell you to believe, period. Or else you're a terrorist and they can hurt you because we hurt terrorists. Listen to America's new grand inquisitor, Adam Schiff of California.


REP. ADAM SCHIFF: We have been urging for some time that the FBI and the Department of Homeland Security raise the priority to domestic terrorism to white nationalism as it threatens the country and we're gonna continue sounding the alarm and make sure that they're devoting the resources, the time, the attention just as we did after 9/11 to the threat from international terrorism we need to give the same priority and urgency to domestic terrorism. 


CARLSON: Got that? Vote the wrong way, and you are a jihadi. You thought you were an American citizen with rights and just a different view. No, you're a jihadi. And we are going to treat you the way we treated those radicals after 9/11, the way we treated bin Laden. Get in line pal, this is a war on terror. Keep in mind as you listen to people talk like this, and Adam Schiff is far from the only one, keep in mind they're talking about American citizens. They're talking about you.
