TUCKER CARLSON (HOST): So, what is hate speech? Well, it's speech that our leaders hate. So, because a mentally ill teenager murdered strangers, you cannot be allowed to express your political views out loud. That's what they're telling you. That's what they've wanted to tell you for a long time, but Saturday's massacre gives them a pretext, a justification. You have to ask yourself, who behaves like that? 


But most painful and destructive of all, Biden is likely to use racial wounds in order to make his point. There is no behavior worse than this. All race politics is bad, no matter what flavor those politics happen to be. No race politics is better than any other. All of it is poison. Race politics subsumes the individual into the group. It erases people, it dehumanizes them. Race politics elevates appearance over initiative and decency and all the other God-given qualities that makes every person of every color unique, yet morally equal to every other person. 

And above all, race politics always makes us hate each other. And always in a very predictable way. So, let's say you were to make identity politics mandatory in your country, as they have. How could you be surprised when that leads -- as it inevitably will -- to white identity politics. Well, you could not be surprised. You did it and it was always going to happen. 

And then what happens next? Nothing good. Race politics is a sin, race politics always leads to violence and death. They learned that lesson in Rwanda in 1994.
