From the June 27 edition of Fox News' Tucker Carlson Tonight:

TUCKER CARLSON (HOST): "Criminalize desperation" -- and you thought this was your country, just because, like your ancestors, you were born here, just because you pay half your income to the government to keep the whole thing going, you thought it was your country. Think again, racist. America belongs to the rest of the world. Your job is to shut up and pay for it. Complain, and we will punish you.

...

In case anyone missed it, the two whitest candidates on stage decided to repeat the point in stilted Spanish.

...

Got that, gringo? You can add the English language to the long and growing list of things the Democratic Party considers racist. How long before you are banned from speaking it? Think we're joking? Right. Better to learn Español if you want to talk to your grandkids. It's a brand new world.
