TUCKER CARLSON (HOST): But the whole thing is a lie. If you were to assemble a list, a hierarchy of concerns of 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. The combined membership of every white supremacist organization in this country would be able to fit inside a college football stadium.

I mean, seriously, this is a country where the average person is getting poorer, where the suicide rate is spiking -- "white supremacy, that's the problem" -- this is a hoax.

Just like the Russia hoax, it's a conspiracy theory used to divide the country and keep a hold on power. That's exactly what's going on.


White supremacy -- you know, I've lived here 50 years, I've never met anybody -- not one person -- who ascribes to white supremacy. I don't know a single person who thinks that's a good idea.

I don't -- I mean, they are making this up, and it's a talking point which they are using to help them in this election cycle, obviously, because Russia died.
