TUCKER CARLSON (HOST): Okay, so if you're following at home, I just want to be clear on how this works. Democrats are so worried about your attempts to undermine our institutions that they in the end may have to burn those institutions down. Sorry, your extremism did it.

Laura Ingraham is the host of "The Ingraham Angle" on the FOX News channel. It airs nightly at 10 o'clock. We're always happy to have her on the show. Laura, thanks so much for coming up.

Obviously, all of us are worried in the face of this, within minutes of the passing of Ruth Bader Ginsburg, the mob formed outside the homes of lawmakers. Why don't Democratic leaders say unequivocally out loud tonight, tomorrow, now tell their voters don't do this anymore? No more, quote, "direct action," no more violence, no more threats? Do you think they'll do that?

LAURA INGRAHAM: No, I don't. I think they've made an unholy alliance, Tucker, with the far left, because I think they've kind of given up on convincing the rest of us that they can raise our standard of living or life in the United States is going to get a lot better under their policies. They're not even trying to argue that really, they're doing climate change, but it's not really going to make -- you put more money in your pocket or maybe take a vacation if you're a family of four.

So they've kind of thrown that out the window and it's all about the revolution. And if the country, Tucker, is systemically racist -- systemically, well, what has to happen to the system? The system has to come down.

I mean, the court, I mean, I'm half expecting that when you see stuff going on in D.C. over the weekend in New York. You know, you're wondering if the building is going to stand at the end of all of this and Schumer and Pelosi, they made a decision to ride the wave of AOC and the rest of the squad. They hope to victory in November. And if not, then I think all bets are off as to what they're going to try to do to the country.

But I think they've given up on trying to persuade us that they're going to raise your wages higher than Trump did in 2019, which was a record by the way, which nobody wants to talk about.

CARLSON: I mean, they're opposed to seeing a conservative sit on the court. I understand that. I was opposed to Bill Clinton nominating Ruth Bader Ginsburg. I didn't burn anything. I didn't try to prevent the vote from taking place.

We can see where this is going. This is moving toward violence. Why shouldn't Republicans and they don't -- why don't they call this out, out loud, on the floor of the Senate in the House of Representatives from the White House and say please, Nancy Pelosi Chuck, Schumer, Sandy Cortez, call off your voters. Stop this now.

INGRAHAM: Yes, I think they've kind of given up, too, in a way, and I'm calling it out to that extent, because I think they know in the heart of hearts, Tucker, it's not going to work.
