TUCKER CARLSON (HOST): So you're not going to see that clip on CNN, how come? It's simple. Facts like this, and there are a lot of them, challenge the carefully constructed story line that our leaders richly profit from. Therefore, those facts must be suppressed. For example, practically every day we're told that white cops are a mortal threat to black men and some are obviously, it's what started this whole thing, a black man was killed by the police. It's awful. But what are the national numbers on this? Well, actually, we know the answer. A study from last year found that white police officers were less likely to shoot and kill nonwhite suspects than nonwhite police officers were. In any given year police kill more white suspects, armed and unarmed, than black suspects. And that's a fact, by the way, it's not political propaganda. It's provably true. Yet no one on television will ever say that because that fact threatens the scams they're working.
