TUCKER CARLSON (HOST): Here's what their press release says. "More than 1,500 confederate monuments stand in communities like Charlottesville with," quote, "the potential to unleash more turmoil and bloodshed. It is time to take them down." That sounds like a threat to me.

TYLER O'NEIL: It certainly does. The worst thing is they put middle schools, elementary schools, high schools on this list. No student deserves to have to go to school in, when there's a violent outbreak of protests. No student deserves to walk to school through rocks, through mace being flown --

CARLSON: Of course, that's exactly right.
