I am white.
This dude, is a travesty:
Tucker Carlson is a sophist, and in this age of digital media, he uses manipulated footage and edited segments to further the aim of sophists. Sophists are those who are paid or have a special interest in making the weaker argument appear the stronger, in other words, constructing lies and foisting them as strong arguments.
As the man himself says: “It is designed to confuse you.”
His guests are either carefully chosen to be caricatures and foils, poor representations of an opposition he can shadow box with. Or, if someone gets through and does challenge his narrative, as in the clip dissected below, he has a panic attack and shuts down the show. This is in no way real debate or even opinion reporting. It is a meticulous construction of white supremacist talking points, mostly designed to make his followers angry, and to promote civil unrest. Migrants are depicted as ‘invading hordes’, civil rights protesters are ‘rampaging animals’ and never is one called to feel human empathy, for the entire goal of the show is to dehumanize both the other, and the viewer.
