TUCKER CARLSON (HOST): I'm almost 50 years old, I remember when things like this didn't happen in New York City ever. And now they seem to happen with some frequency. It seems obviously tied to immigration, why is the country unwilling to have that conversation, to face that?

WHALID PHARES: Because there is something in that conversation that is still taboo which is the ideology. Don't touch the ideology says the mainstream media, academia. Unless we change politically and intellectually we're not going to get anywhere. And my concern here --

CARLSON: But how can a small group of people in charge of our country continue to lie to the rest of us and demand that the rest of us participate in their lies when everyone knows it's a lie?
