TUCKER CARLSON (HOST): Here's Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib explaining that Pelosi is oppressing people of color.

"Give us power because of our skin color" -- that's the argument Tlaib is making. Many make that argument, Ocasio-Cortez made the very same case during her Democratic primary campaign last year.

By definition, it is a racist pitch. It's every bit as repugnant as a white candidate making the same appeal, and many Democrats did make that appeal, racial appeal, under Jim Crow. "Vote for me because of my race," it's disgusting, but it's everywhere now and Democrats applaud it.
