Tucker Carlson and guest complain that you can “unleash the blizzard of ‘F’ and ‘C’ words” on conservatives but not minorities
Mark Steyn: "You have people you can't say anything about because they are black, they are gay, they are Muslim, they are transgender, whatever is next down the pipe"

MARK STEYN: I mean, we live in a coarsened culture, and everybody has said that. I think one of the reasons why Samantha Bee, for example, used the c-word is that the f-word has been drained of its power.
TUCKER CARLSON (HOST): Right. That's exactly right.
STEYN: We're on two incompatible tracks. On the one hand, you have this general coarsening, f-word, c-word, c-word, f-word -- but on the other, you ever more protected classes of people. So, you have people you can't say anything about --
STEYN: -- because they are black, they are gay, they are Muslim, they are transgender, whatever is next down the pipe, which means that it is actually only people who are associated with Trump, or who are religious conservatives, or who are whatever. It's a very narrow sliver of people you can unleash the blizzard of "F" and "C" words on, and that's the contradiction, and as we have talked about before, Tucker, it's actually killing comedy.
