TUCKER CARLSON (HOST): Yesterday was the year anniversary of the "Unite the Right" rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, in which a woman was fatally struck by a car that was driven into the crowd.
If you followed the hyperventilating press coverage leading up to yesterday's event, you probably expected to see thousands of hooded klansmen showing up on horseback in D.C.,to commemorate and celebrate the killing.
White supremacy is just that prevalent in America, they tell us, it's everywhere -- except it's not, that's a lie.
White supremacy is not ubiquitous in America, it's not a crisis. It's not even a meaningful category. It is incredibly rare.
You could easily live your entire life in this country without meeting a single person who believes anything like that. Most of us have lived lives like that, I have. In fact, this is a generous, tolerant country, it always has been that.
People who tell you otherwise are either delusional or trying to control you with fear, likely both.
