TUCKER CARLSON (HOST): What if you didn't like Martin Luther King? Most people do like Martin Luther King, but most people also like Teddy Roosevelt and George Washington, so clearly popularity has no bearing on whether your statue is allowed to stand in this country. So, can you spray paint obscenities on Martin Luther King's monuments if you don't like him? How healthy would that be?
These are theoretical questions, obviously. You know the answer to them because you know the rules. The rules are never spoken out loud, but they are obvious. America has two standards of justice. When they do it to you, it's social justice. If you dare to defend yourself, it's a hate crime.
Consider what we've seen recently. How many stores and parks and statues and public buildings have been destroyed recently by rioters? How many churches and memorials and monuments to our fallen soldiers have been desecrated by them? Too many to count. Now ask yourself, how many people have been held accountable for these crimes? Some, a few? No, hardly any.
Politicians applaud this destruction. Law enforcement has ignored it. Why is that exactly? Rioting is a federal crime. So is arson. So far, two people have been arrested and charged in the burning of the third police precinct in Minneapolis. Two. Video footage, which is everywhere, you've seen it, shows clearly that scores of people were involved. Authorities could identify them and charge all of them. We might have fewer riots if they did that. But no, the Justice Department isn't interested in doing that.
