HEATHER MAC DONALD: Feminism has ambitions to take over civilization and when that happens you can say goodbye to civilization. They’re trying to disappear males.
Feminism is really at odds with the civilizational legacy that we have inherited, that we have to preserve at all costs.
TUCKER CARLSON (HOST): Can I ask you a really simple, quick question? Why would a group -- any group -- want to poison the relationship between men and women, which is the building block of everything that is good in the world?
MAC DONALD: Because they would rather hate. They are self-interested, they have no understanding of the future. They have no understanding of the values and virtues that make civilization possible, and they are simply seizing power, and are in a manic rage to efface males.
And this sounds hyperbolic, Tucker, but you look around at institution after institution that has been taken over by feminists and the absurd diatribes that are launched against males, and that's the only conclusion you can reach.
CARLSON: Well, you know, maybe 5 years ago it was thought, "You know that Heather Mac Donald? Nice, kind of a hot-head" -- now, I think you are absolutely right, and I think you are really brave for saying it as clearly as you do, and I'm grateful that you did tonight.
