TUCKER CARLSON (HOST): Now, liberals say they abhor white nationalism, and they should, but at the same time they are promoting it with crap like this. When rich liberals pull up BuzzFeed for the latest listicle of why white people are wrecking America, or whatever, they are happy to laugh along, because they are safe in the knowledge it doesn't actually threaten them.
You are worried, and you should be, and now some smug private school kid from Brooklyn is lecturing you about how you are the problem, because the color of your skin, and the privilege it conveys. How much of that are you going to take before you explode at the unfairness of it all? And at that point, why wouldn't you embrace a racial identity?
Everybody else seems to be doing it. That's a disaster, and it's not theoretical, by the way. That's what's going to happen in this country, unless people start deciding they're going to treat one another as individuals, rather than as members of groups.
