TUCKER CARLSON (FOX NEWS HOST): This is not flattery, but you're one of the people who will say something that, like, other people haven't thought of before. And you're totally willing to go out on the no, I'm not joking. You're willing to go out on a line to be like actually I, you know, I think Obama's a racist. And no one had said that before. He is a racist. You're absolutely right. Most  including me, I had not thought of that at the time. You were totally right. You had this weird flash of insight into the guy, and you said it. What was the first response of everyone at the top of American society? Crush Glenn Beck. He said something unapproved. Rather than saying, wait a second, that's kind of is Obama racist? We should think about this for a second. That's a weird insight, I had never thought of that before.

We should incentivize that kind of thinking, open-minded thinking. We should identify the people who are thinking for themselves, who are having really interesting and cool thoughts, and reward them for it. Instead, we destroy them for it. What?
